by Elizabeth George.
I’ve decided to do a women’s book study that I feel you will find both encouraging and motivating. There are 15 short chapters and a message for you and I as women of God that I think you will find edifying and thought provoking. I will be posting the main focus of each chapter and my thoughts on each of the chapters each Wednesday, beginning March 29. Let’s spring forward together and enrich our lives with the examples of courage, faith, and promise of some of the most unique women of the Bible.
From the introduction:
“If you are like me, your life resembles one long obstacle course. Every day is filled with challenges of singleness, married life, and child raising. They know about going without, about loss, old age, death and dying. All of the pain, sorrow, confusion, and the difficulties under the sun have touched their hearts; and now they live in God’s Word to instruct us as we cope with our lives today.”
“Beloved, these women are gifts of God to you and to me. Whether or not you have a mother or a friend or a mentor who is available, you have the remarkable women of the Bible. Let them share with you. Let them encourage you. Let them counsel you. Let them show you the best way – God’s way to handle everyday and every difficulty.” Pg 7-8
We will sit down together and discuss their remarkable stories just as we would sit together in your kitchen and let the Bible teach us the lessons that many young women may have never been taught while growing up, but God our Father is a living Father, and He is always available and our best instructor.
Here are the women we will be looking at:
Eve – Remarkable Creation
Sarah – Remarkable Faith
Rebekhah – Remarkable Journey
Jochebed – Remarkable Mother
Miriam – Remarkable Leader
Rahab – Remarkable Grace
Deborah – Remarkable Wisdom
Ruth and Naomi – Remarkable Devotion
Hannah – Remarkable Sacrifice
Esther – Remarkable Courage
Elizabeth – Remarkable Walk
Mary – Remarkable Life
Mary and Martha – Remarkable Love
Dorcus, Lydia, Priscilla, Phoebe – Remarkable Servants
I hope you can join us as we journey with them and find the hidden treasures God has had written down for our learning and instruction.
There is also a study guide to go along with this, “The Remarkable Women of the Bible Growth and Study Guide: And Their Message for Your Life Today (Growth and Study Guides)”, but this isn’t necessary.
