2. Ferocious Warrior by Cora Jakes Coleman
As a visionary woman, it’s imperative to realize that your most daunting battles happen in the spiritual realm. For those of you pondering how to defeat the enemy’s tactics in your professional or personal affairs, prepare for battle. Cora Jakes Coleman, sought-after preacher, author, and children’s ministry director of The Potter’s House in Dallas, TX, shares invaluable insights that will render the enemy futile…Every. Single. Time. Quite honestly, this dynamic book is not for the faint of heart. However, it is for leaders and entrepreneurs who are ready to dismantle the enemy’s most destructive attacks.
Throughout this intimate “war manual,” Cora delves deep into her personal struggles with depression, insecurity, infertility, and more, to effectively equip you to overcome your own battles. To reign victorious as a visionary woman, you must understand the anatomy and psyche of your opponent; a cursory approach will not suffice. It’s time to battle!
