On February 18th Beth and I talked with Diane Markins about the ten top things women desire—as discovered through Diane’s extensive interviews—and what happens when we specifically and boldly ask God to bring these desires into our lives. Though of course I strongly encourage you to listen to the recording, this is what Diane discovered (in no particular order):

Women want health & beauty; love& marriage; home & family; meaningful friendships; respect; laughter; personal time (“me time”); security & safety; purpose & passion; and a deep connection to God. Diane is writing a book about this topic which is due for release in November.

She encourages us to live contentedly through challenging circumstances and not give up hope. Ever.

A wonderfully inspirational discussion.

Thank you so much, Diane, for blessing us with your wisdom and humor!

Diane’s Coaching Suggestion

*Schedule an hour alone with God (which may be challenging but sooo worth it!). Tell God what your life is like (He knows, but voicing it will bring a clear picture to YOUR mind) and ask Him to reveal your heart’s deepest current desires.

*Start writing a letter from God to you. If you are a long-time believer, this will be easier. If not, ask a mature woman of faith to coach you through this exercise. God will help you discern the desires that match with His intentions for you and bring clarity. For an example, see “Let God Speak” on my blog at http://dianemarkins.com/?p=77

* If you can name your top needs, list them and consider:  (1) why they matter to you; (2) how you can be sure they align with God’s word; (3) what you have already done to meet these needs; and (4) what is one new thing you could do this week to move toward meeting your top need.
