    1 thought on “Courageous Gentleness: Following Christ’s Example of Restrained Strength

    1. I loved the slightly unexpected nature of the title for Mary Ann Froehlich’s new book, Courageous Gentleness. In a modern world like ours, where we marvel at the brazen, the bold, the loud and powerful, her book encourages us to prize, treasure, and pursue the spiritual fruit of gentleness.The book is filled with Scripture and each chapter concludes with a few questions of “Personal Retreat” to guide the reader into deeper reflection and personal application. At under 200 pages, the book i [...]

    2. I am I gentle? Wow, when I read the first line about the book I was blown away with just that question. As a Christian woman, I am expected to be gentle in speech, action, spirit, but I will admit it is something I struggle greatly with. I am not gentle by nature. I am kinda loud, sarcastic, opinionated and growing up with brothers, well I am a work in progress shall we say. I see these women and men in church and around in the community and they are soft spoken, and well gentle and I wonder how [...]

    3. Gentleness is an expression of self-control that expresses kindness and compassion Did you know expressing kindness in any form can make you happy? It takes away anxiety that frees you to express joy in your life. There can be many misconceived ideals about gentleness because true gentleness is born from humility. When we get out of the way with our ideals whether if they are right or wrong, we can begin the good work of gentleness. Just like Christ kindness towards us leads us to repentance, so [...]

    4. "Courageous Gentleness" is a study on biblical gentleness. The author examined what the Bible says about gentleness and whether Jesus is gentle. She discussed why gentleness is desirable (now that you understand that gentleness is strength under control) and pointed out that American Christians don't have the reputation of being gentle. Then she showed how other fruits of the spirit are linked to gentleness and how to express gentleness along with a quiet spirit, self-control, kindness, humblene [...]

    5. I wasn't sure what to expect from "Courageous Gentleness" by Mary Ann Froehlich, but since it was released during my year of gentleness, I figured I'd better read it. I was pleasantly surprised. This book went beyond the usual, for-women-only, "gentle and quiet spirit" take on gentleness you find in the Christian inspiration genre, tackling everything from how Jesus displayed gentleness to how we as Christians fail at gentleness in our interactions with culture. It's a book I've revisited and th [...]

    6. Courageous Gentleness, by Mary Ann Froehlich, shows that gentleness does not mean weak. We are able to show gentleness when we speak or when we act. In fact, this is what the Bible calls us to do. We can still reach others, sometimes with more effectiveness when we choose this path. This book helps us to take another look at how we live and see how we can work gentleness into our Christian life. I was given this book by NetGalley and Discovery House Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    7. I purchased this at Helping Hands thrift store in Bentonville, Arkansas in late Jan/early Feb of this year. It's one of those books that you have to be ready to read---otherwise it's dull and preachy and droning. I didn't realize it---but I was definitely ready to read it. Courageous Gentleness has changed my life. As a kid, I was pretty shy around most people but pretty creative and outgoing around close friends and family. Moving into my adult years, I hit a point at about 30 years old, when I [...]
