As a 37-year practicing marriage and family therapist, I fully anticipated from the preliminary title of this book—Threads of Power and Safety—to read instruction for women on being empowered and safe from the control of men. But it has nothing to do with the negatives of life. It is all about being in the cradle of the Lord’s arms through righteous living, but living in a practical, simplistic, and attainable way.
Honestly, I was humbled as I finished this book, and grateful. In addition to women, it would be helpful for men to read it too. It makes us aware of the spiritual dreams of most LDS women, and should give us great pause on how we can honor their dreams by cherishing them as Heavenly Father’s daughters who only want to do what is right.
Fay does a marvelous job in giving women patterns for life, a tapestry of threads for safety and power.

As the bishop of a Young Single Adult ward, I see, interview, and associate with beautiful young women on a regular basis. In this chaotic world these women are challenged on every side. They have problems, temptations, heartaches, and repentance and forgiveness issues that most people cannot even imagine. And so much of their burden they shoulder alone.
Fay Klingler’s book, A Woman’s Power: Threads that Bind Us to God, is just the kind of book these young women need for strength to get through the day, the week, their lives. I’d like a stack of her books to hand out to each of my lovely sisters—the ones who are succeeding as well as the ones who struggle.
Thank you, Sister Klingler. Your wise words will help a great many women.

True principles, illustrated with real life examples, that is the way to truly teach. Fay Klingler’s book, A Woman’s Power: Threads that Bind Us to God, is filled with inspiring quotes, stories, and examples that will inspire women to more closely include the Lord as part of their lives. As I read, I was making connections to my own life story and relationship with my Heavenly Father and motivated to strengthen my ties with Him.
Creator & Performer—Children Will Listen: Reflections on Motherhood
When women in difficult situations choose to deal with pain by “numbing themselves out,” they risk sacrificing their unique and often best qualities in order to maintain an appearance of “being OK.” In A Woman’s Power: Threads that Bind Us to God Fay Klingler illuminates through the use of scripture and meaningful stories from women’s lives. This book encourages all women to thoughtfully ponder the opportunity to build a powerful and more trusting relationship with our Father in Heaven, and to follow specific steps to confirm our identity as Daughters of God, with inherent rights to personal safety and the ability to embrace life with confidence and joy.

As I read A Woman’s Power: Threads that Bind Us to God, I was pleased to find the answers to life’s problems come from our understanding of who we are and how we respond to that knowledge. Fay Klingler’s testimony throughout the book speaks of the power we have to take charge of our lives and the power we have to respond to what we have no control over. This book definitely has my endorsement!

The principles taught in this book are true and powerful. When they are exercised in each individual’s life, she will feel a greater peace and a greater capacity to confront life’s challenges and strengthen her relationship with God. Fay Klingler illustrates these principles through interesting stories and scripture that will capture your attention and bring them to life. I highly recommend this motivational read.
