Our culture teaches us that it’s important for women to be strong. The Bible agrees. Unfortunately, culture’s idea of what makes a woman strong doesn’t always align with the Bible’s. As a result, Christians often have a skewed view of what constitutes strength. In The Right Kind of Strong, Mary Kassian delves into Paul’s exhortation in 2 Timothy about the women of the church in Ephesus and uncovers warnings and truths about seven habits that can sap women’s strength. She reveals how, by guarding against these seven pitfalls, Christian women can walk in freedom and grow to be strong God’s way.
My friend, Mary Kassian, is a strong woman. I can’t think of anyone better to help you navigate the challenge of living in a world that celebrates and promotes a very different kind of strength. The seven strength-building habits Mary unpacks from God’s Word are foundational. This book will not leave you unchanged. I wholeheartedly commend it.
Mary’s book is the theological compass for our lost and drifting girls, women, mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends. Mary’s words have theological depth, humor, and culture relevance. By reading and receiving them, we might not have less weak women, but we will have more women that have found their strength in a Savior who’s really good at making the weak strong.
Compelling. Radical. Beautiful. Mary did an excellent job of showing us why a strong woman isn’t built on power and hustle, but on humbly acknowledging our need for Christ and embracing His strength in our lives. We pray this book inspires many generations of Christian women to rise up and become the right kind of strong women for God’s glory!
