A Gentle & Quiet Spirit
- Revised and Updated -

Note from Virginia Lefler

After 51 years of marriage and continuing to dig deeper in my understanding of a gentle and quiet spirit, I have updated this book to include more of my discoveries. I’ve also added Bible meditations on spiritual beauty, strength and peace. My own practice of meditation has helped me move my knowledge of God from my head to my heart. It is my hope that these Bible meditations will give you new insights into God’s heart and help you to draw closer to him as you study A Gentle & Quiet Spirit.

Many Christian women face a dilemma in embracing the biblical teaching in 1 Peter 3:4 about a gentle and quiet spirit being of great worth to God. They want to please God but they perceive “gentle” and “quiet” as weak or passive qualities. The truth is that the original text describes a strong and peaceful woman. Find out how to become this woman who is of great worth to God.


“Virginia is completely vulnerable in the candor of her personal examples, completely practi­cal in addressing the issues and attitudes faced by most wives, and completely spiritual in her solutions from the Bible. I needed this book; I think every Christian wife does!”

– Linda Brumley, Women’s Ministry Leader

“I thought I knew all the things the bible had to say about this subject and she takes it to a whole new level using the Greek word meanings to clarify the concept. I would strongly recommend this book for all women of all ages!”

– M.E. Knudson, Reviewer, 5 Loaves and 2 Fish

What a lovely book. We used this book as a mother and teen daughter class at church. It created great discussion – W. Sherrill


Perfect timing! I love this book. I want to study it with the women in my church. I love the order it is written in. I found with every chapter another layer of the heart is exposed right to the very center of the heart. I think the world, entertainment, fashion industry, etc., have really lulled us into compromising a lot. I know of times where I would really be bothered by things on T.V., and have even compromised my convictions thinking that maybe I’m just too old school. Thank you for waking me up!!!! – A.R.

What's it About?

Descriptions of God’s grace often do more to muddy the water than clarify its meaning. The words grace, mercy and forgiveness are used like synonyms. Frequently, grace is described as “unmerited favor.” However, when we focus on how unworthy we are to receive it, we make grace more about us than about God.

The Complete Guide to Grace clears up misconceptions about God’s grace and reveals truths that will give you a new perspective of the blessings and challenges of life. A better understanding grace will help you connect more deeply with God.

La Descripción

Como Cristianos, podemos luchar una y otra vez con lo mismo, sin darnos cuenta de que nuestra lucha está enraizada en lo que creemos sobre nosotros mismos, Dios u otros. Nuestras creencias profundamente arraigadas pueden ser en realidad mentiras que aceptamos como verdad en algún momento de nuestro pasado. Estas mentiras pueden convertirse en fortalezas en nuestras vidas y llevar al desaliento, a la desconexión, la codependencia, los malos hábitos y las adicciones. Si no estás consciente de que tu lucha está enraizada en una mentira que crees, tienes que tratar de manejar los efectos de la mentira y lidiar con las consecuencias cada vez que resurge. La lucha continúa porque estás tratando los síntomas, no la causa raíz. Además, si una mentira ha distorsionado tu visión de Dios, será menos probable que recurras a él en busca de ayuda.

Descubrimiento Espiritual es un estudio bíblico para ayudarte a identificar lo que crees y a descubrir la verdad que demolerá fortalezas en tu vida. Aprenderás 7 Principios para el Crecimiento Espiritual que te ayudarán a romper tus patrones insalubres.

La Descripción

Muchas mujeres Cristianas enfrentan el dilema de abrazar las enseñanzas bíblicas referentes a un espíritu suave y apacible. Desean agradar a Dios, pero perciben las cualidades “suave” y “apacible” como débiles o pasivas. La verdad es que el texto original en el Griego describe a una mujer fuerte y llena de paz, y la palabra traducida “mucho valor” significa lo máximo o el límite con referencia a un precio. En otras palabras, no hay nada más valuable para Dios. Este libro te dará una nueva perspectiva y enseñanzas muy valuables de cómo convertirte en esta mujer fuerte de paz interna. Hay veinte y cinco hojas de trabajo a través del libro que lo hacen excepcionalmente fácil de usar para estudio personal o como un guía para estudiarse en grupo.
