The Hands of a Woman: Everyday Women In Everyday Battles eBook for Kindle

The Hands of a Woman: Everyday Women In Everyday Battles Available at Amazon October 23, 2015

The Hands of a Woman:
Everyday Women In Everyday Battles


Are you hitting those goals you made earlier this year—or even last week? On Friday, October 23, 2015, my eBook The Hands of a Woman: Everyday Women In Everyday Battles will be uploaded on Amazon. This will accomplish a goal I’ve had TWO years now–to get all ten of the books I’ve written available as an Ebook on Amazon for the Kindle!

This powerful book has eight women’s true, inspiring stories of how they overcame their strongest spiritual battles through prayer, faith in Jesus Christ, and standing on God’s Word. Stories dealing with topics like:

  • panic attacks
  • suicidal depression
  • a bank robbery
  • the death of a child
  • the death of a baby
  • abortion
  • a husband addicted to cocaine
  • childhood sexual and physical abuse
  • a missionary’s child harassed by a demon
  • domestic violence

Whether you realize it or not, every day you’re surrounded by spiritual warfare, even though you can’t see it with your physical eyes. But the battle is real. Satan comes as a thief to steal, kill, and destroy.(John 10:10) 

In this book, you learn about the most powerful weapon you have as a believer in Christ to defeat the enemy Satan–the word of God. It is the weapon Jesus used when he was tempted in the wilderness by the devil. God’s word stands forever! (1 Peter 1:25)

I plan to offer the eBook FREE to you all day and night on Friday, October 23, 2015; then it will be for sale for only $3.99.

War Room movie



Today I’m planning to go to the movie War Room. I can’t wait; it looks so good!

The critics have tore into it (no surprise ,since it’s Christian based). One review that I read today has me intrigued. The review from Jim Judy at Screen It says:

“The flick has a potentially dangerous ‘remedy’ to domestic abuse … it’s not up to Elizabeth to change or judge her husband, regardless of his behavior. Instead, she should respect, love, forgive, and pray for him, and let God do the rest. That’s all fine and dandy, but there are plenty of religious wives (and children) who’ve eventually been beaten and even killed by abusive husbands/fathers despite all of the prayers in the world.”

Interesting the main character’s name is Elizabeth (my formal name). I’m a childhood sexual abuse and physical abuse survivor, which I share about in my memoir Promises In the Dark: One Woman’s Search for Authentic Love, and I am the survivor of domestic violence in my second marriage, so I don’t condone abuse in any form.

Too many women are held captive by domestic violence, whether through physical abuse, financial abuse, emotional abuse, or a combination of all three, Women are much more likely to be victims of intimate partner violence, with 85% being women and 15% being men. There are 3 women murdered every day by a former or current male partner. Since 2003, 18,000 women have been killed by men in domestic violence disputes. It’s a problem that won’t go away quickly. Violence almost always escalates. (Resource: The Huffington Post, 30 Shocking Domestic Violence Statistics That Remind Us It’s An Epidemic)

If you are a victim of abuse and/or domestic violence, please get help and to a safe place quickly. You (or your children) are not a punching bag. God never intended for you to tolerate abuse “in the name of submission.”

Far too many pastors advise women to “just submit” to their physically, mentally, and/or emotionally abusive husbands, putting them (and possibly their children) in danger. This also is true for pastors telling wives to “just forgive” their husband’s pornography addiction, adultery, emotional affairs, etc., like Laurie Hall writes about in her powerful book, An Affair of The Mind (a book I highly recommend).

After I see the matinee War Room today, I’ll let you know if I agree with the above review from Screen It. But I’ve heard from a few Facebook friends that they loved it.

Have you seen the movie yet? What did you think? Leave your comments below.

I’m so excited! My new book, Promises In The Dark: One Woman’s Search for Authentic Love, is now available as an Ebook for Nook at Barnes and Noble!


Here’s what my client and friend Stephanie Carter had to say after reading it:

I just finished Beth Jones’ book, Promises in the Dark.… Let me say, Beth, thank you for your courage to write each and every word. It was very transparent and telling, to say the least. I was greatly inspired to know Jesus and to write my own stories. It is a great book that I believe will bring healing or at least open a door for women needing healing from their secrets and false promises. They will see your transparency and be encouraged to move from the dark to the light of Jesus. Thank you for writing this book. God bless you.”
