The Woman Code – Book Review
Each of us lives by a set of beliefs, values, and principles that help define who we are and govern the decisions we make each day of our lives, whether we are consciously aware of them or not.
In The Woman Code – 20 Powerful Keys To Unlock Your Life, author Sophia A. Nelson categories these principles into 20 codes that she hopes will unleash something powerful and majestic in each of us, once we fully begin to embrace them.
Sophia divides the book into five sections:
- Personal Codes
- Emotional Codes
- Spiritual Codes
- Professional Codes
- Relational Codes
In each section, Sophia takes an in-depth look at four codes, providing detailed information about what each code entails – what we need to do to fully live out the code – and key words associated with the code.
For instance, Section 1, The Personal Codes, deals with knowing our value, making peace with the past, teaching people how to treat us, and living authentically. In her introduction to this section, Sophia writes:
Every woman lives by a Code that either propels her to greatness or keeps her stuck to the challenges and obstacles of her life. These Codes are the foundation of every woman’s life. They are core to how we develop into the woman we all want to be.
What I liked about The Woman Code is that you don’t need to read this book from cover to cover to benefit from Sophia’s experiences – it’s perfect for focusing on the chapters you need and working through at your own pace.
I thought that The Woman Code was well written and engaging. However, from a content perspective, I’d advise you to preview the book before investing in it to ensure that it’s what you are seeking.
If you are looking for an inspirational self-help book that’s filled with sage advice and draws from a variety of sources including the Bible but is more motivational than scriptural, than you will enjoy this book.
However, if you are looking for a life-changing book that derives its teachings primarily from the Bible, than this probably isn’t the book for you.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
