^of thousands of women who have read her bestselling books and who listen to her ^two daily radio programs, Revive Our Hearts and the one-minute feature Seeking Him. ^Through these programs, she calls women to revival and biblical womanhood. Her love ^for the Word and the Lord Jesus are infectious and permeate her online outreaches, ^conference messages, books, and radio programs.

In October 2008, Revive Our Hearts hosted the first True Woman Conference ^in the Chicago area, which sought to help women everywhere discover and embrace ^God's design and mission for their lives. Over 6,000 women attended True Woman '08, ^and three more national conferences were held in 2010. The ministry continues to ^hold additional national conferences and trainings for leaders in women's ministry ^for which Nancy is a keynote speaker.Nancy grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ^in a family deeply committed to Christ and to the mission of world evangelization. ^At an early age, she surrendered her life to Christ and to His call to fulltime ^service.Nancy graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree ^in piano performance and went on to serve as the Primary Children's Ministries Director ^in a large local church.

Holiness is not just for some select few spiritual giants; it is not just ^for pious people who sit around all day with nothing to do but "be holy." Holiness ^is for moms who battle a sense of uselessness and discouragement and who are tempted ^to escape into self-pity, romance novels, antidepressants, or the arms of an attentive ^man. It is for lonely widows, divorcees, and singles who are struggling to stay ^sexually abstinent. It is for husbands and wives who wrestle with bitterness toward ^mates who have abused or abandoned them. It is for men who are tempted to cheat ^on their expense reports or their wives or to abdicate their spiritual leadership ^in the home. "Everyone who names the name of the Lord" is called to live a holy ^life! God would not command us to do anything without also enabling us to do it. ^He knows we cannot possibly be holy apart from Him. That's why He has made provision ^for us to overcome sin through the cross of Christ. That's why He has sent His Spirit ^to live in our hearts. And that's why He has given every believer a supernatural ^resource called grace that gives us the desire and the power to be holy.

When our pastoral team reads a book by Nancy, we listen. We ^are riveted. We are convicted. When you taste the pleasantness of painful ^and precious truth, you want more. I thank God for the heart-awakening, holiness-advancing, ^Christ-exalting ministry of Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

As I read this book, I was sobered again by the deceitfulness ^of my own heart, moved to careful repentance and urged to fix my gaze upon Christ ^as the only model and means of holiness. Nancy's clear voice expresses the ^Father's heart for His children.
