Marvelously Made Book Review

Good Essays
In today’s world, there are so many different ideas on how women should live and who we are as women. It is so easy to get caught up in the lies of this world; including the lies about who God is and also about who we are. When we listen to these lies instead of listening to God, it often leads to feelings of uncertainty and insignificance. In the book, Marvelously Made, by Monica Rose Brennan, she brings misconceptions such as: relationships, acceptance and pleasing people, body image, education and intelligence, occupation, money, religious works, hobbies and interests, the past, attention of others, and sickness and pain to light based on what the Bible says of who we are in Him as well as what His expectations of us are. She also gives the truth about each one of these misconceptions based on scripture and what God says about these misconceptions. This book is a full of scriptural and personal insight into unveiling each woman’s identity and purpose according to God's Word. God wants us to be secure in our knowledge of which we are as women, as Christians, and as daughters of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ. In the first section of this book, Monica Rose Brennan talks about what our true identity is in Christ and how we need to remove our masks and stop being fake and be real with people. Psalms 139 sheds light on what our identity in Christ is and tells us that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” She breaks down Psalms 139 into 4 unchanging truths about who we are in Christ. The first unchanging truth is that God has a perfect knowledge of us. The second unchanging truth is that God is omnipresent which means He is always with us. The third unchanging truth is that God is our designer who uniquely and purposefully created us and she also reminds us in this truth that we are not an accident. The fourth unchanging truth is that God loves us and also He cares for us and we are always on His mind and He never forgets about us. In

    Labor Relations September 25, 2012 Reaction Paper: Made in Dagenham Film In the film that we’ve watched entitled Made in Dagenham, we have seen how powerful strikes can be. It is done so that the rights of the workers will be upheld, and that, only upon compliance of the Legal Requirements may it be declared a valid strike. Many are the reasons why workers would engage in such an activity, one of which was the discrimination of gender which the film presented. We have also…

    1. Read this (this thing 1 cm. below) P. J. O’Rourke, the political satirist, reviews in this issue a new book about Starbucks. He told us, in an e-mail exchange, how he brews his own reviews: “I read something I’m reviewing the same way I read other things except more so.

    When choosing a book for my book review, nothing really seemed to jump out at me. I pondered the list for a minute and then once more until I finally saw a title that seemed intriguing. Pocahontas, Powhatan, and Opechancanough: Three Indian Lives changed by Jamestown. By Helen C. Rountree seemed like it would be an interesting book. What immediately caught my eye was that it had something to do with Pocahontas in it. I knew her from the Disney movies but was interested to know more. As I got further…
