In When We Were Eve, Colleen Mitchell draws on the creation story in Genesis to show women God’s gracious plan for their whole being: body and soul in harmony with themselves, others, creation and their Creator. Through her own story and those of other women, she explores the many ways women struggle with their bodies and the way a biblical understanding of what it means to be a woman can bring them peace and joy.

When We Were Eve: Uncovering the Woman God Created You to Be


BEAUTIFUL!!!! Very well written! You can very easily grasp and understand the purpose and meaning that God has given us in our femininity as women of God. Mitchell's Way and style of writing pulled me with the knowledge to fully appreciate being a woman more than ever before. 'When We Were Eve' is now my favorite book and I highly recommend it to any woman who is seeking to understand God's great purpose for us in our true femaninity as women of God.

A gem!

This book calls out to the heart of each woman, inviting her to rediscover herself and to grow in intimacy with God in the process.Of particular difficulty for women of course is our distorted view of self and our often troubled relationship with our bodies.  Mitchell reminds us that we are comprised of both body and soul, and that this makeup requires us to maintain both body and soul through gentle physical and spiritual care.
Interwoven throughout the book are several stories from women sharing intimate pieces of their own journeys back to healthy relationships with themselves.  This provides much to reflect upon.

Mitchell’s writing style is a breath of fresh air.  In a world clamoring for our attention, she whispers truth into the weary souls of women.  She is well versed in Scripture and the writings of the saints.  It is also evident that she is very self-aware, making her well equipped to be our guide.

At the heart of her message, we learn that in being kind to ourselves we are not indulging in prideful self-love, but rather we are merely loving God and giving Him due glory. Every woman deserves to know the truth of her creation story, the truth of her place in the Kingdom of God.  This book guides readers through the pathways that lead back to the Garden of Eden. 

Colleen Connell Mitchell is a bringer-upper-of-boys and wanna-be saint who packs a little Louisiana spice with her wherever she goes. She currently serves at-risk families in her job as a social worker in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and spends copious hours on football and soccer fields yelling more loudly than all the other moms. She finds joy in the Word, the world, and the wild wonder of everyday life.
