New Bible Studies for Women from Abingdon Press
When Cheryl Hale discovered a note from her grandmother, written to her mother and tucked in a family Bible, ending with the phrase "Girl be brave," she found the inspiration she needed to push through her fear and chart a course for her life.
In Girl Be Brave: 100 Days to Chart Your Course the 100 reflections, inspired by Cheryl's grandmother's note, encourage readers to embrace the plan God has for them, face their fears, and discover that they are braver that they ever thought possible.
The word fierce is trendy. It is used to describe women who are supermodels, extreme athletes, or high-level executives. Women at the top of their game. But what about the rest of us? Can we be fierce? Absolutely In fact, women like us have been changing the world for thousands of years--many who received little fanfare yet lived fiercely anyway. In this six-week study we will look at lesser-known female characters in the Bible and the ways they changed the world by living into God's calling, including:
The midwives of Egypt (Shiphrah and Puah), who made hard decisions in the face of evil
Deborah, who was an unlikely and powerful leader
The Shunnamite Woman, who bravely served and reaped God's blessings
The Woman at the Well, who boldly repented and shared her faith
Lois and Eunice, who parented with intentionality and effectiveness
Priscilla, who discipled many others
As we explore their lives, we will discover how we too can live into our callings, honor the Lord, and even change the world through our courage, faithfulness, and obedience.
Do you ever feel like God is taking too long to answer your prayers? Have you ever taken matters into your own hands, only to discover that you've made the situation worse?
Waiting on God challenges our faith when the bills are stacking up, our families are falling apart, or our dreams feel like they won't come true. We know that God hears our prayers, but it's hard when the clock is ticking yet He hasn't shown us the answer.
In this four-week Bible study, Barb Roose invites us to explore the stories of women in the Bible who had to wait on God-- women such as Hannah, Ruth, Tamar, and the unnamed woman who suffered for over a decade with a painful medical condition. If you've felt anxious, angry, discouraged or depressed because God isn't giving you what you want, their stories will breathe fresh hope and practical next steps in your life. As a reforming control lover, Barb mixes in her personal stories of learning how to wait for God during long seasons of unanswered prayers, family difficulties, and challenging times in ministry. Together we will discover that there is goodness and blessing to be found in times of waiting, including a closer relationship with God than we've ever dared to dream.
We live in a world full of bad news. The media recounts stories of natural disasters, violence, and conflict. In the midst of all this heartbreak, we can't lose sight of the fact that God has given us good news. We call it the gospel. It reminds us that God loves us and longs to redeem our suffering. He stepped out of eternity and into time to send us His one and only Son. The gospel truths shared with the early church at Rome echo into our day, reminding us that we still have good news to embrace personally and to share with others.
In this six-week study of the Book of Romans, we will be highlighting significant concepts regarding the good news about faith, grace, daily life, God's plan, relationships, and eternity. Whatever bad news we may receive, in Romans we will find good news to encourage and transform us.
Join Melissa in taking a posture of listening and learning as we approach this powerful book packed with good news? Let's ask God to do a mighty work in and through us as we study so that we might be inspired with a spiritual renewal that spreads to those around us
We hear a lot about some of the "big" names in the Bible. Moses. Mary. Paul. But what about those who have a small mention, or whose names aren't even known? What might they have to teach us about the faith journey? Footnotes is a unique four-week study that introduces us to some people who are just a brief blip on the screen of the Bible timeline, just a footnote in biblical story--people it would be easy to overlook but we shouldn't underestimate. As you journey through this four-week study, you will be inspired by the backstories of these people of faith who show us that even minor players can teach major lessons.
