Had an opportunity this week to preview a new study from Lysa TerKeurst, a New York Times bestselling author and speaker who helps everyday women live an adventure of faith through following Jesus Christ. As president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, Lysa has led thousands to make their walk with God an invigorating journey.
Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl is a 6 session study for women that “guides participants on an incredible, tremendously rewarding journey on which they will discover how to:
- Build personal, two-way conversations with God
- Study the Bible and experience life-change for themselves
- Cultivate greater authenticity and depth in their relationships
- Make disappointments work for them, not against them
- Find incredible joy as they live out their faith in everyday circumstances
DVD-driven, the study features Lysa TerKeurst’s easy conversational and story-telling style. Set up with an attention grabbing personal story, a short Bible teaching lays the foundation for the sessions discussion. With an average length of about 15 minutes, the video teaching is in the range that holds attention very well.
The participant’s guide includes a video viewing guide and a simple set of discussion questions for each session. Providing a daily experience, the each session also includes a Between Sessions Personal Bible Study.
TerKeurst’s very popular book by the same title makes an excellent companion (and the participant’s guide provides a reading schedule).
Becoming More Than a Bible Study Girl is a straightforward study that will provide a very good next step for women’s small groups or Bible studies. If you’re looking for a study that will help group members take spiritual next steps beyond business-as-usual, Becoming More is a study you ought to take a look at.
