Mendy Clark’s, Transforming the Heart, provides insight into the spiritual demise of women who struggle yet fail to live a godly life while providing hope in a fallen world. Upon completion of her dissertation, Developing a Biblical Model to Disciple Women in the Process of Spiritual Maturation, it was obvious that Christian women needed Dr. Clark’s experience, wisdom, and guidance in searching Scriptures to grow into godly women. Mendy was encouraged to produce a workbook representing her findings so women, through a study of the Scriptures and the work of the Holy Spirit, would have the opportunity to confront the hidden sin(s) in their lives, to realize the effects of the atoning love of Jesus Christ, to desire repentance and change in their thinking, and to know and understand clear and complete obedience to Him. Learning through these stages of growth can lead to the meaningful relationship with God that Christ-followers are seeking after but rarely find. The biblically-founded guide provides a comprehensive study of God’s Word that can bring the woman who is seeking after God’s own heart into a new relationship making Jesus the Lord of her life and leading her to continued spiritual growth. Such insight can only be found through the teaching of the Holy Spirit as He illumines Scripture and through the guidance of an individual who has allowed the Holy Spirit to be her teacher. I recommend the study guide which can be used with/by a counselor, women’s leader, or individual who is pursuing God. I am confident that those who go through the guide will experience changed lives for Christ. Thank you, Dr. Clark, for your obedience to a God-given task!
