Houston has written this book to encourage women along the journey and stay the path. Her idea is to lead by example so she relates many of her own experiences in the book. They are good examples and will give courage and hope to readers.
Houston shares the experiences that shaped her as she served alongside her husband for over four decades in the multi-faceted ministry of Hillsong. She helps us understand what kept them on course and focused, even during adverse circumstances. She writes of the necessity of conviction in the complexities of life. She writes of doing spiritual battle, reminding us that we Christians will have situations designed to mature us. She encourages us to have strength, to rely on the Holy Spirit, our Helper and Companion. She notes the necessity of our calling and understanding the responsibility that goes with it, choosing to work hard. She also encourages us to have clean hands and a pure heart.
This is a good general book of encouragement for women. It will be especially meaningful for women who have been blessed through the ministry of Hillsong. It is a refreshing account of giving glory to God for being the Shepherd throughout her journey in life.
