If you’ve read Secrets of the Vine by the author’s husband, Bruce Wilkinson and get the concept of living a life of dependency of Jesus, then don’t get his book. But if you’ve read it and still don’t understand how to make time for Jesus in a crowded life of demands made of you as wife, mother, caregiver and breadwinner, then get yourself a copy of this book.
Expounding on it predecessor, this book deals with more of the practical barriers that keep us from letting go and letting Jesus direct our choices, perspectives and attitudes in life. Using everyday examples of women attempting to fill a full and meaningful life for themselves while meeting the demands of life, Wilkinson emphasizes how being connected to Jesus the Vine is not something you squeeze into your schedule as time permits; but is instead what your entire day is anchored upon. Everything you do is layered atop your constant connection to Jesus. It is the fuel that not only propels you along but that also brings focus and meaning to your purpose as a woman.
A small book, a powerful concept, that illuminates an ageless truth–One needs to be connected to the Vine to produce fruit.
