Sharpening Iron to Live Second

Defending the Feminine Heart (Book Review)

Admittedly, I read a lot of books. I read usually about one book a week give or take. However, rarely am I compelled to write about what I read. Especially on my own volition, without sponsors or a promotion of some sort.

That is until today…

Defending the Feminine Heart, A Masculine Wall for GOD’s Daughters by Jeff Voth is available on Amazon. I had the opportunity to purchase a copy at Cavetime last weekend. That being said, I wanted to share some thoughts and offer up a challenge.

Men today have come under attack. Our masculinity is at stake and truth be told…it’s our fault.

We have allowed modern culture to dictate how we are to behave. Our sinful nature going unchecked has permitted lust, pornography, and sex trafficking to become rampant. Meanwhile, we complacently sit on our backsides. Allowing it to happen or worse endorsing it with our own bad behavior.

In, Defending the Feminine Heart, Jeff Voth exposes Satan's tactics to destroy the role of masculinity, in order to capture God's daughters - our wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers. Woman was taken from the side of man where she could be protected, covered, and defended. First breached in the Garden of Eden, the enemy has strategically degraded the masculine wall in his pursuit to harm the feminine soul. Jeff pulls no punches in his new book. He rightfully calls us knuckleheads out. But not only does he shine the light on the darkness, but he shows us the way. Providing a step by step process in becoming a wall for God’s daughters. Calling out the enemy and learning how to protect all women, as God intended.

We are all knuckleheads and have been since Adam.

Jeff shows us that through pursuing the second Adam, Jesus we don’t have to be. It is the time that we stand up against the enemy. Time to reclaim, rebuild the wall that God intended to guard His daughters. Whether it is your own daughter, wife,  mother or a complete stranger, they are all God’s daughters. As men, real men, we are called to protect them from the attacks of this world.

Jeff has touched on a critical issue – the way our culture does not care for women. He has a plan for making a huge differerence. ~ John Eldridge

Even if generations before you objectified the women in their lives, or perhaps it is your friends, or maybe even you. We owe it to our generation and the next to take back our masculinity. We live in a fatherless society that has left so many children vulnerable to the exploits or the enemy. As close as your computer screen or cell phone, exploitation is everywhere. It is up to us to stand up and bring an end to it all. We are called to guard, protect and defend ALL women, Jeff’s book gives you the tools.

For those of you that are interested in locking shields with me in the fight, there are a few things you can do.

Join me in buying a copy of Jeff’s book for yourself or for the women readers for the man in your life.

You might be wondering what the challenge was that I mentioned…

I challenge the first five people that buy a copy of Jeff’s book Defending the Feminine Heart, A Masculine Wall for GOD’s Daughters by Jeff Voth on Amazon today (October 10th) to comment below and I will send you another one to give away to someone else who needs to read it free. (Proof of purchase required)

That’s right, I believe in this book enough to put my own money on the line.

It is time that men stand up and be the wall for His daughters, will you join me?

Prayer engages men in real, transparent conversation with God.

As men, we need to start each day on our knees in prayer. It is then that we can stand and use our worship as a weapon against the enemy, the lives of our women depend on it. The process of building a wall for God’s daughters begins with you.

On His behalf, we stand for you…
