Jonalyn Fincher wants to show that women can be both fully human and fully feminine. Traditionally, femininity has been a role women play, a role defined by culture and simplistic sermons. The author encourages women to look at the feminine roles or boxes that pinch their souls: mother, fashion devotee, working wife, intellectual. Does God treat femininity as a role, a curse, or a gift? And when Jesus redeemed women, what was it exactly that he redeemed? Even after Eden, Fincher points out, God planned to redeem both men and women. But for centuries, women have been taught to devalue the very aspects of their souls that are unique and irreplaceable. Femininity itself runs deeper than aprons, frills, or romance. It begins with feminine souls who are living cameos of the triune God.In Ruby Slippers, Fincher takes a fresh, direct look at the challenges she faced on her search for the feminine soul. She goes step by step through what it means to be a woman and how to cultivate her soul, choosing not to shy away from psychology, theology or personal transparency. In her journey she discovers an understanding of femininity that is timeless and groundbreaking. The roles melt away into something like Dorothy's ruby slippers, something women have always had-the souls to walk today with freedom and femininity.

From the book's earliest moments, Jonalyn makes us laugh, grieve, search, and grow as we walk with her on a road bricked with stories and wisdom and wit (oh, my!), and throughout the journey she gives us permission to ask---as well as a framework to discover---just what it means to be created feminine, in the dazzling image of our God. -- Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneira, , Editor
