Society has no problem telling women who they should be. It dictates their values, image, relationships, money and career. Yet there seems to be a desperate lack of intentional, practical guidance for adult Christian women. Sometimes we don't know what to think, but even when we do, we're not sure how to live it out. How do we do life, men, sex, image, money, friendship? What do we do with unmet expectations and unfulfilled needs? Where is our place in today's culture and how do we embrace it and live life to the full?

Jo Saxton and Sally Breen draw on their mentor-disciple relationship of many years to encourage women to think for themselves and engage with the issues and the culture that influence them. HIGH HEELS AND HOLINESS contains extra material for the reader, including pauses for reflection, and ideas for practical application. There is also group study material.
