Spiritual Warfare for Women

The Watered Soul: Spiritual Warfare for Women

Spiritual Warfare for Women

Can what you don’t know be hurting your home? Your family? Your friends?

According to Leighann McCoy the answer is a resounding YES. In her latest book, Spiritual Warfare for Women, she tackles the subject-spiritual warfare- that many Christians would just assume to pretend doesn’t really exist. But whether we admit it or not we are all in a spiritual battle.  She aims not only to make us aware that there is a real war going on but acts as a spiritual coach helping women to identify the key areas in which the enemy wages  battle against us and arms us with strategies for winning. 

Here’s quote from the book that points out how subtle the enemy’s tactics are:

Caricatures would have you believe that he is a dragon surrounded by fire, or a red monster with horns and a forked tail, or even a slimy snake ready to strike. But most often the devil comes in the form of a compassionate man who is eager to hear how your man isn’t measuring up…or a chocolate cupcake piled high with icing that promises to make you feel better for yelling your kids this morning…or a friend eager to hear the intimate details of your problems at home so that she can offer her compassion and remind you that you are too good to put up with that. Never does the object of temptation reveal itself to be as wicked as it truly is.

The book is divided into four sections:

  • Part One: The Most Powerful Weapon of All-God’s Love
  • Part Two:  The Enemy Exposed
  • Part Three: The Targets in Our Lives
  • Part Four: Victory is Mine

Each chapter of the book concludes with scriptures to sharpen your sword and creative exercises to help you commit the Word to memory, which I really liked.  McCoy uses a conversational style tone and shares her own personal battles with cancer and raising her teen daughter.

About the Author:
Leighann McCoy is sought-after speaker and writer. She is the prayer and women’s minister at a large Southern Baptist Church where her husband serves as pastor, and she has written a number of devotionals and Bible studies for women. She lives with her family in Franklin, Tennessee.
