Lisa Bergren and Rebecca Price have written a lovely Bible study that helps us ladies (and you know who you are) focus less on what WE want and more on what God wants for us, what He wants to do for us, and what He wants to do THROUGH us.
I’m impressed with the way Lisa and Rebecca just get down and dirty with the transparency…and not just themselves, but other women (like Robin Jones Gunn, Shaunti Feldhahn, and more) who they interview throughout the book.
I have studied many Women’s Bible studies (they’re kind of my thing…wink, wink) and I thoroughly enjoyed the study at the back of the book. Don’t just take my word on it…check out the other stops along the tour here. Boy, what a bunch of gifted bloggers Lisa and Rebecca have rounded up.
OH, and what a fun contest they’re having. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling Lisa and Rebecca WHO your best friend is and WHY she’s your “Sister of the Heart”.
They’ll post your story on their blog and choose one winner and her best friend to receive a copy of What Women Want and one of their musical accompaniments Lisa and Rebecca have created for their Bible study. (Ambient or Mellow Vocals)! Fun.
And if you scoot on over to their blog tour post and leave a comment you could win a $15 Starbucks card. But, don’t bother on this one…I know I’ll win. God knows how I need my coffee. “)
About the book: From a deeper relationship with God to harmony in the home, from stronger marriages to more satisfying work: Women Want More.
In What Women Want, bestselling author Lisa T. Bergren and Rebecca Price invite readers to thoughtfully consider their soul-deep longings—and pursue God’s best in every area of life. Using in-depth interviews from a national survey and hundreds of personal interviews, biblical narratives, their own personal stories and inspiring quotes, the authors point fellow seekers toward the kind of wholeness God desires, providing lots of fun and inspiration along the way. They explore friendship, how and where to find happiness, health, and more with an eye on physical, emotional, and spiritual matters.
A Bible study, designed for personal or group use and tested with dozens of women’s ministries around the country before publication, is included at the end of each chapter.
Young or old, married or single, with children or without, striving in the workplace or working in the home, readers will resonate with Lisa and Rebecca’s descriptions of the life women crave, and learn how God fulfills the very desires He stirs.
What women want is no secret. But discovering the God who satisfies might just be the adventure of a lifetime.
