Letters to Women by Chloe Langr

A new book

Letters to Women: Embracing the Femmine Genius in Everyday Life is a collection of letters put together by Chloe Langr. There are 30 letters from different women for different times and seasons of life. Some a specific, letter to those who want to be married or have suffered a miscarriage. Others are more general, women who are suffering or want more joy in their life. Each letter begins with a brief introduction from Chloe and ends with questions for reflection and questions for conversation. The questions would be ideal for a group study.

How did this book come about?

Chloe has a podcast by the same name. She realized that many women have similar struggles and thought it would be interesting to pull together different letters on women’s experiences in different situations and how God spoke to them. Some of the letter authors will be familiar names while others not. But each letter serves the purpose of speaking to a woman’s heart and helping her embrace her feminine genius.

What is the Feminine Genius?

This is a phrase used by St. John Paul II in his Letter to Women before the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995. He used the phrase but did not define it. He did give some characteristics though, such as receptivity, density, generosity and maternity. There is no one way to live out the feminine genius. Rather, it the unique way you are put together by God to live as a woman in this time and place.

Who is this for?

All women! I read the letter about Surrender. It was written by a woman who could be my daughter. It resonated with me. I encourage you to take a look at this book for all the women in your life.

It is published by Tan Books.

Chloe offered a great challenge: spend just a few minutes in silence (maybe during lunch time or early in the morning) to simply exist with God, entering into a time of prayer with Him without an agenda, but simply to be present.
