Do you dream of making a difference for God--but wonder how to begin?

Do you find it difficult to keep your focus amid the urgency of everyday living?

Do you feel ill-equipped to help those who turn to you for guidance?

Are you searching for direction for your life--a ministry that matters?

Pam Farrel has been there, as have so many countless other women she has discipled. In this book she shares what she has learned about disciplemaking, discovering a personal ministry, and staying focused on your goals. By the time you work your way to the end, you'll have discovered why a woman of influence:

  • is impassioned
  • is an individual
  • is intimate with God
  • is idealistic
  • is interdependent
  • takes initiative
  • has integrity
  • is intense
  • is inquiring
  • is infectious

Though many still debate the proper role for women in leadership, no one denies that women have a great influence on their families and friends, on the job and in the church. In Woman of Influence Farrel shows how you can be a faithful servant of God in all of those relationships and circumstances. Here's a book that women everywhere will welcome--full of encouraging counsel for finding God's leading in your life and then following him.

This revised edition--containing even more stories of women, updated examples and a Bible study--can give you fresh perspective and direction in your life as you discover all the ways God wants to use you to influence others for him.

"Pam Farrel is a woman of influence who has made an amazing difference in countless lives with her humor, wisdom and teachings. God has given her a gift to communicate and lead others to better relationships and positions of influence in their personal lives."

Linda Evans Shepherd, coauthor of The Potluck Club, president of Right to the Heart Ministries

"Pam takes us on a journey of discovering the unique path of influence that God has personally designed for each of us. She teaches us how to recognize and develop the God-given passion that lies within us. This book will inspire you and give you the courage and strength to be a 'woman of influence' within your little corner of the world."

Fern Nichols, founder of Moms In Touch and author of Every Child Needs a Praying Mom

"Pam Farrel is a woman who lives her teachings! She believes that one ordinary woman connected to the extraordinary God can make a difference. That's a message I can get behind!"

Lysa TerKeurst, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and author of What Happens When Women Walk in Faith

"Pam Farrel is a remarkable woman of influence! With contagious joy she communicates biblical truth to her audiences. Her authenticity, vulnerability, poignant stories and use of Scripture make her a favorite on retreat and conference platforms across the country. I highly recommend Woman of Influence as a book every Christian woman should read."

Carol Kent, speaker and author of When I Lay My Isaac Down
