Boldly Living Your Purposes with Vibrant Clarity

I’ve had the wonderful privilege to read this book.  Here’s the scoop:

Women in High Def aims to propel women out of a low-def, foggy life of going through the motions in a blur. The profound stories, intercessory prayer prompts and coaching elements work together to catapult women into living fearlessly for God…being bolder moms, having purposeful passions, pursuing marriage excellence, loving themselves with gusto, laughing with abandon, transforming mistakes into blasts of blessings and bravely seeking the Lord in all His majestic glory. The bonus Bible study at the back of the book points them to scripture to gain Biblical insight and direction for each need and role they play. It can be used alone or in a group.

Women in High Def is not passive reading. It cries out to the spirit of readers to be unafraid as they actively reach for clarity, vibrancy and intensity in all the meaningful areas of their lives.

Here’s the scoop on the author:

Diane Markins has always aspired to live in High Def. She uses her radio show, writing and speaking to inspire women to transform their lives from mediocre and complacent to bold and vibrant. She settles for nothing less in her own life as a wife, mom, grandmother, friend and colleague. Diane writes two blogs, and,  is a regular contributor to the Presidential Prayer Team website and She and her husband of 33 years work and live close to their children in Arizona.

Here’s what another fantastic author has to say:

Women in High Defwill remind you that when God writes your story, you are in for the adventure of a lifetime! Diane Markins has written a book addressing topics women deal with on a day-to-day basis. If you are looking for a contemporary, captivating read filled with practical advice that will give you insight and wisdom for daily decisions, this is it!”

~ Carol Kent, Speaker and Author Between a Rock and a Grace Place (Zondervan)

Simply to add my 2 cents – It’s fabulous.

Within the pages, you will find 10 chapters, organized into a variety of topics such as Beauty of Health, Security, Purposeful Pursuits, and Friendship.  Each of these chapters contain 6 articles, written as a compilation of over 18 different authors.  I thoroughly enjoyed the variety of perspectives and writing styles, as well as the introduction to several new writers.  I found myself extremely encouraged by the mission of this book.  I too want my life to transition from the old RCA to the new HD LED intensity.  I too long for sharp clarity of purpose, vibrantly colored relationships, and bright contrast as I take bold action.  I too want to be a Woman of High Def.

AND… that’s not all!!  You too can own this book!
