Women in High Def is a guide for anyone interested in developing a relationship with God through high definition living strategies and techniques. People often feel that they are not living their lives to the fullest and look for easy fixes for the problem; this book outlines ways to make one’s life more purposeful right now.

Women in High Def is broken down into chapters describing better ways to develop a healthy lifestyle, revel in humor, find “me time,” encourage friendships and supernatural intimacy, develop love and respect in relationships, and learn how to be a better you. The way to happiness is through finding time for yourself, which is something that many women have still not learned to do. They are used to (and often expected to) putting their families first. But if they look to the advice in these pages, they can find a way to renew their spirit by finding something in common with the stories being portrayed here.

There are many contributing authors who offer real life stories of faith. Better yet, most stories are written in such personal voices and feels like conversations being shared over coffee. Each story is like a mini faith lesson (usually two pages long) offering hope, inspiration or the tools to forgive and move into a better space in life.

Some stories are well written, others are somewhat choppy with italics included within the paragraphs (possibly to simulate the author’s speaking to herself in her mind?). All stories include a lesson, a resolution and end with a general prayer that the reader can adopt as her own if found in a similar situation. There are also extra questions at the end of the book for Bible study.

Women in High Def is certain to provide tidbits of wisdom to women of all faiths who aspire to greatness.
