The Red Tent
The Red Tent - Anita Diamant

A biblical tale and fictional account based on the story of Dinah from Genesis.  The only daughter born to Jacob and Leah (first wife) of the Old Testament is narrated in the voice of Dinah through the stories of her mother and aunts.

 

Dinah grows up in The Red Tent where the women of Jacob gather for childbirth, healing and their monthly cycles.  Each aunt lovingly tells her story in order pass knowledge and teach Dinah the history and lessons that came before her.  Here she learns the dynamics of how these women get along as well as the obstacles they've faced.  To say these women had it difficult is the supreme understatement. From her beautiful aunt Rachel she learns midwifery and discovers she has a genuine calling so much so that she is sought out from others and thus brings value to her tribe.  We are witness to Dinah's coming of age, falling in love and her life's journey bringing her full circle.

 

Ultimately a women's read, I found this story dense with emotion and at times intense.  One of the most satisfying stories I've ever read. While this book sat on my shelf for nearly a decade I admit I felt somewhat put off by the subject matter all the while hearing high acclaim for it.  I'm sorry I let it sit so long but it's a relief to have it off the TBR stack  shelf. I give this book the highest recommendation and am happy to have already passed it on to a book club member.

 

How I acquired this book: Passed to me by my friend Jackie.

Shelf life: 10+ years

Twelve Women of the Bible Study Guide: Life-Changing Stories for Women Today
Twelve Women of the Bible Study Guide: Life-Changing Stories for Women Today - Lysa TerKeurst,Elisa Morgan I really liked this bible study. There were a lot of nontraditional vantage points offered in this study. I absolutely loved the DVD personal videos of real life women. This has been a great experience. I do wish they had some opening prayer notes included. I am definitely going to be looking for individual items from some of the presenters because their outlooks & personalities were easily relate-able.

The Body Sculpting Bible for Women
The Body Sculpting Bible for Women: The Way to Physical Perfection - James Villepigue,Hugo A. Rivera,Nicole Rollolazo,Peter Field Peck,Robert Kennedy I have had a weight problem since my early teens and yo-yoed through diets for the next two decades and more on lots of fad diets and little exercise. My best results came when I tried Body for Life and joined the gym--and not just dieted. Body for Life though emphasizes free weights--and I found I preferred using the weight machines at the gym. This does offer routines that use only dumbells rather than gym equipment, but I found it particularly useful in the thoroughness with which it explains how to use the machines. Something that was explained to me when I joined the gym, but its useful to have a guide you can bring in when you need a brushup without paying for a personal trainer.

The Body Sculpting Bible for Women
The Body Sculpting Bible for Women: The Way to Physical Perfection - James Villepigue,Hugo A. Rivera,Nicole Rollolazo,Peter Field Peck,Robert Kennedy This is my go-to book for when I am in that I-will-work-out-2-hours-every-day-and-look-like-Angela-Basset zone.

Obviously, if you follow this book, you will look slamming hot (or over-trained, depending on your sensibilities). The exercizes are back-to-basics, no-frills, straight forward bicep curl types. And that's really all you need sometimes.
