Discipleship is a responsibility of every believer, yet many of us avoid doing it because we don’t know where to start. “The Gentle Art of Discipling Women” provides a framework for discipleship from the mentoring voice of a seasoned discipler. Dana Yeakley walks with you through the foundational principles of who you are in Christ and how you are uniquely equipped to pass along what He has taught you.
The book is divided into two parts: Be a Disciple: Four foundational truths (We Are Becoming; We Are Forgiven; We Have Access; We Are Safe) strengthen our confidence so that we can pass along our faith.Make a Disciple: Four questions (How Do We Create the Right Atmosphere? Who Do We Help? What Do We Share? How Does Discipling One-on-One Actually Work?) help us nurture a discipleship relationship.”The Gentle Art of Discipling Women” will help each woman discover her unique gifting in discipleship through her relationship with God, her personality, and her story.
My Review:
 What does it take to disciple oneself? The author can answer this question and take you through the long process of discipling other women. Women need to know they are not alone in their day to day struggles. You have women in churches today that feel alone and vulnerable and they need to know that first and foremost Jesus loves them. He hears their cries and He sends others to come long beside them to get them through this journey we call life. More women should step forward to assist and guide women to be all they can be for God. But many of us just simply don’t know how or are too afraid to step up to the plate. 
 Mentoring other women can be intimidating, to say the least. Dana Yeakley, lays out a way for each of us mentoring women to cut right through the heart of other women to point them to Jesus. she should know she has had several years of experience in this and has created a Biblically sound base along with a lot of great research on the matter to help others along the way.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
