Resource Friday: Lies Women Believe

Why do we struggle with sin? What is it that captivates our hearts to drive us away from God? And how can we fight those temptations and choose to please God? In this week’s resource, Lies Women Believe, Nancy Leigh DeMoss seeks to answer these very questions by highlighting some of the common and dangerous lies women tend to believe today, and weighing them against the truth of the Bible.

In Lies Women Believe, DeMoss dives deep into the root cause of the enslaving struggles we face today: lies. Just like Eve was deceived and ate of the forbidden fruit, we are still so easily deceived, and oftentimes are blind to it. Each chapter in this book addresses several lies, building up to 40 lies by the end of the book. And these aren’t just surfacy, “these kind of apply to me but kind of don’t” lies; DeMoss does a great job of getting deep and specific, and takes the time to battle each lie with the truth of God’s Word! With personal application questions at the end of each chapter, this interactive book really gets its reader on the pathway to freedom from deceiving lies.

One of the great things about this book is that its readers have a chance to dig even deeper and get even more personal with the Companion Guide. And DeMoss didn’t stop there. Seeking to reach women of all ages and stages of life, DeMoss has also written a teen addition to this book, Lies Young Women Believe. We use both of these great, powerful resources regularly here at Vision of Hope, and they have greatly impacted many of our residents.

Bethany Dunn
Bethany heard about Vision of Hope while attending Word of Life Bible Institute in Florida. When she began praying about what God wanted her to do after graduating, He kept bringing Vision of Hope to her mind. Knowing that there was an internship available, Bethany applied, was accepted, and began her internship with VOH in July, 2012. Since then she has been amazed at the opportunities God has given her to learn more about His Word and how it applies to everyday life. Bethany now serves on staff at Vision of Hope.
