If you have ever wondered about the worth of a woman in Gods eyes, all doubt should be removed by the time you immerse yourself in the pages of Far Above Rubies. This books theme is like a balm to the souls of wounded women. Sandra writes this in a language that makes Gods Word accessible, yet keeps the message pure, unadulterated and uncompromised.

Personally, I was very excited to review this work because of my knowledge of the authors life, which God has used to mold her into a humble servant who genuinely understands the hurts of women. Because of Sandra Smiths obvious desire to have this book go beyond purely intellectual knowledge of the Proverbs 31 woman and to reach the very soul, probing questions are listed at the end of each chapter to help women discover a more applied and deeply personal understanding of Gods Word for them. You are challenged to really review your beliefs, emotions, words and deeds as relates to the awesome possibilities God has laid out for you.  

If you are not ready to examine your walk within the context of the Proverbs 31 woman, then this is not the book for you. However, if you are ready to give serious attention to Gods vision for women and to hear the truth about what it requires, then this is one of the resources that would facilitate an applied study of this model woman. In addition to the benefits for believers, one of the most wonderful treasures in Far Above Rubies  is that it speaks to such a variety of women-- single or married, young or old and saved or yet to be saved, to name a few. I can readily envision many women relating to the book and being blessed by its no nonsense, real message regarding the ways we should conduct ourselves in order to live more abundant, empowered lives.
I encourage you to read Far Above Rubies with an open mind to the unlimited possibilities available to you through the Creator. For it is when you open your mind to Him that He will surely deposit something valuable in it. As this book points us to the Proverbs 31 woman, we are called to go beyond the spirit of average. The truth of the matter is that average is the same distance from the bottom as it is from the top, and God has so much more in store for us than being no closer to the top than we are to the bottom. Be encouraged to not get weary in your well-doing and continue to wait on Him to do just what He said. The Word tells us that they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31, KJV). I believe that this book will give you an anointed message that will help you renew your strength, understand the weariless race and ultimately soar to the heights God wants you to reach.

    Would you like to stop being the narcissist’s punching bag and regain the respect that you deserve?
    Do you tend to attract abusive people that take advantage of you? Are you left conflicted and confused after the relationship falls apart?
    It’s a fact that the narcissist in your life doesn’t care about you. Dr. Judith Orloff said it best, “Narcissists have an empathy deficit disorder – they’re not capable of empathy as we know it.”  
    As a result, they are more likely to display narcissistic traits, like engaging in manipulative or game playing behaviors, than to commit long-term. If you’ve been with a narcissist in a relationship, then you have become the victim of something called "narcissistic abuse.” 
    To the narcissist, you are nothing more than a source of attention, admiration, and praise. They need you to supply these things so that they can continue to support their inflated, false sense of self.  While narcissism in men is more common, women are no exception. Realizing that you are in an abusive relationship can be a difficult challenge for anyone to face. Luckily, you are not alone in this journey. There are important tools needed for this process to help you understand what has happened, cope with the trauma, and move on from narcissism in toxic relationships.
    The definition of narcissistic abuse implies that you’ve been a victim of verbal abuse, manipulation, gaslighting, exploitation, subjugation, neglect, isolation, or even violence, and reading this book will greatly benefit you! In Narcissist Abuse Recovery, you will learn how to break free of your abuser, get through the recovery process, and form meaningful relationships in the future. 
    In this book, you’ll discover: 
    How to enter the mind of a narcissist and uncover their deepest, darkest secrets 
    The undeniable traits that qualify you as the ultimate target for narcissists
    How to reveal the mask that narcissists use to hide their true identify and decode their language
    The one thing narcissist can’t go without and how you can starve them of it
    How to take your abuser's power away and regain the respect that you deserve
    The zombie effect that occurs when you don’t stand up for yourself, and how the narcissist can use it against you
    The horrifying abuse cycle stages narcissists funnel you through to turn into a chew toy
    How abusers can sometimes stick around long after you get rid of them
    A simple technique for silencing your abuser and taking control of the situation
    Weapons an abuser plans to use against you when trying to leave a narcissist marriage or going through a narcissism divorce
    Effective methods for recovering from abuse and healing psychological trauma 
    The inescapable narcissism that exists in your family, and how to fight against it
    And much much more!
    The road to healing and narcissism recovery has never been easier. This book was written by someone that has experienced what you have been through — pain and confusion, and desperation for something better. Most victims can have trouble leaving abusive relationships, but you can different. You can leave your abuser without feeling abandoned, even if you’re scared to be alone or have no place to go. It is possible, and we are capable of reaching goals through our strength.
