Description

Every woman lives by a code, whether she realizes it or not. It informs how she treats others and herself, how much she expects of herself, and how far she is willing to go in order to find success. But is the code we're living by truly helping us create the lives of purpose and fulfillment we desire? Or are we sacrificing the deeper things for mere achievement? In this inspiring book, Sophia A. Nelson calls women to live out a powerful life code that will lead them to purposeful and successful lives. With the wisdom that comes from experience, Nelson reveals to women

- the true meaning of "having it all"
- how to take better care of their minds, bodies, and souls
- how to achieve professional excellence without compromising their values
- how to find lasting love and purpose in life beyond their accomplishments
- how to navigate the sisterhood of women, to build collaboration rather than competition
- how to heal from past hurts, rejection, and life's inevitable storms
- and much more

The Woman Code is a way of living, of navigating life's challenges, and of interacting positively with other women. It's a way of pursuing our dreams and our deepest desires. It reveals a universal and timeless set of principles of the mind, body, and spirit that help women balance the demands of work, home, family, and friendship. The Woman Code not only calls on women to practice purpose in their lives, it shows them how to do it with grace.

"'Women live by a variety of unwritten codes, ' argues former White House reporter, attorney, and author Nelson (Black Woman Redefined). 'Your life Code is formed from the time You are a small girl. . . . Your Code either propels you to greatness or keeps you stuck in the challenges and obstacles of your life, ' she writes. Nelson explains how women can recognize the codes they operate by and use them to reshape aspects of their lives, using what she calls the 'Personal Codes, ' the 'Emotional Codes, ' the 'Spiritual Codes, ' and the 'Professional Codes.' Within each section, she discusses topics that plague many women. For instance, within the Personal Codes, she addresses how to "'Make Peace with Your Past' and 'Guard Your Heart.' In explaining each of these codes, she gives real-life examples and advice, provides takeaways, and identifies key words. Nelson sprinkles Scripture passages throughout the book, but sparingly and only to lend biblical credence to her analysis. Unlike many of today's self-help authors. Nelson doesn't indulge in an us-against-them mentality. Rather, she says that women should be strong. assured, and responsible for their own actions and choices. This refreshing approach is both empowering and enlightening and should appeal to women of all ages."--Publishers Weekly
