I wanted to write a book review of Becoming a Titus 2 Woman, by Martha Peace, after reading it over the past month and really enjoying it.

Martha Peace is also the author of The Excellent Wife, which I have read in the past, and so I was keen to read Becoming a Titus 2 Woman, which follows on from it.

Becoming a Titus 2 Woman is more of a Bible study than the first book, with in depth questions and lots of Scripture to look up, at the end of each chapter. This was good timing for me, as I had come to the end of the previous book I was using for devotions.

Although I am only 38, and so not perhaps in the ‘older woman’ category of Titus 2, I have really benefitted from this book, both in terms of looking again at how I should be living as a ‘younger woman’, and also what I need to be aiming towards as I become an ‘older woman’.

Another book in my Reading List for 2015 was Raising a Daughter After God’s Own Heart, by Elizabeth George, and in it Mrs. George points out that even if we don’t have younger Christian women in our lives to encourage and be ‘teaching good things’ (Titus 2:3) to, we can be that Titus 2 type of older woman to our own daughters.

The section of Becoming a Titus 2 Woman that I found most challenging was the chapter ‘To Be A Worker At Home and To Be Kind’, where Mrs. Peace talks about working hard and being organised, in relation to Titus 2:5. Personally speaking, I have been one of the women who Martha Peace says ‘pride themselves on being “night people”. That means they have trouble getting up in the mornings because they come alive late at night. They may stay up all hours reading, watching television, or pursuing some sort of interest. The next morning they are too tired to get up and care for their family.’ *

Cringe.

I have I have been working on becoming more organised for the past couple of years, which I talked about in my Household Planner post, but this book showed me where I have been lazy with regards to looking after my husband and children.

My favourite thing about Becoming a Titus 2 Woman was the fact that although Martha Peace is presenting challenging biblical teaching, she does so alongside giving personal examples from her own life, of times where she didn’t do things right, and how she could have done them better. At the same time, she does not shy away from telling the reader to reach for high standards in their thought life, and actions.

I have really enjoyed reading Becoming a Titus 2 Woman, and would recommend it for Christian women of all ages who want to deepen their understanding of biblical womanhood, and think through changes they can make in their own lives.

What books have you read over the summer? So you have any reading recommendations for the coming months? I would appreciate any suggestions!

  1. I love Martha’s books. I use “The Excellent Wife” frequently in my counseling ministry. It never fails to be a blessing. I was at a conference a couple of years ago and was surprised to hear Martha say that she didn’t feel “The Excellent Wife” was her most important book, in spite of the fact that it has been read and applied by so many. She feels “Attitudes of a Transformed Heart” is her most important. I had to read it when I got home. It’s meaty like most of Martha’s teaching, and full of great biblical truth! Blessings!

    • That is interesting Donna, and I didn’t know she had another book, so thank you for letting me know! Thank you for your comment 🙂

  2. Oh I love that you shared this wonderful book. I have read all the books you mentioned and they are in my personal library. I just realized I should add them to my Shelfari on my blog. I only have the novels I’m currently reading.
    This was a wonderful post! I am on the other end now. But I am glad that you’ve wanted to share.
    Because I think we can all learn from each other. I learn things from my daughter and DIL.

  3. I have not read Martha Peace before. I will have to remedy that soon. She sounds great!

    I’ve known several night people in my life. I’m an early riser but still manage to fritter time away …

    • Yes, she’s very encouraging, and helpful.

      I am still battling being a night owl, but the days I do go to bed early and get up early, I make so much better use of my time! Thanks for commenting, Jerralea 🙂
