Need Some Ideas

I am starting to think about Bible studies for our ladies at church in the Fall.  We are finishing up Beth Moore's Children of the Day, James McDonald's Authentic and Priscilla Shirer's Breath.  They are all EXCELLENT!!!!
Do you have a study you have done personally or in a group setting that you really liked?
Would you mind sharing?

Watchman Nee's The Normal Christian Life. There is a published guide book that is very good. Née is profound and leads the disciple deeper into God's word.

Jen Wilkin has some great studies. You can download them from her blog. We cut a plastic folder in half and had them spiral bound. Podcasts are there, too. Tammie Head's Duty or Delight. Just reviewed my Experiencing God book...I think that's a staple for discipleship. Sue Edwards has some good'd need smaller groups and a good facilitator for each, I think. Are you coming for the conference?

We're getting ready to start "Keep It Shut" by Karen Ehman.

Kay Arthur's study on the Covenant is the best one I have ever done. It is a video series with workbooks. We had some really great discussions in our group when we did this study.
Thanks Laurie! I got the paperwork today. "Bad Girls of the Bible" was a great study. I found it to be especially inviting to those new to Bible study. It speaks to every woman, even those who do not think they could possibly relate to a "bad girl". I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this study. It is not extremely deep, but convicting and relatable.
Thanks again for your help.

We did the Power of a Praying Wife with the football wives this year, and it was perfect!

Here are a few that I have led in recent years in addition to those by Beth Moore and Priscilla Shirer:

"There is a Season" by Laurie Cole
"The Family of Jesus" by Karen Kingsbury
"The Tabernacle" by Shawn Barnard (from OBU - I think he and Jennifer were gone before you came. - He's Brandon's brother)
"God's Story" by Anne Graham Lotz

Call me if you want more details on how my group responded to each. We've done others, but these were the most popular. Of course we always love the ones by Beth or Priscilla. We're doing "Children of the Day" right now.

I'm so proud of you! I know you are doing a great job as the Women's Ministry Director!

Our Sunday school class likes a lot of materials by Adam Hamilton.

Jennifer Rothschild - Missing Pieces is amazing

Kelly Minter - Nehemiah is also a good study, especially for missions

One on One with God has been life changing for me. It is a set program/study that established a quiet time routine with scripture memorization, Bible reading, discipleship training, etc. So good!

Lisa Harper's Hebrew! She has a few others as well. Lisa has a way of taking the bible and making it alive and well in our every day lives as women. Her studies are easy to do for the mom on the go. If you miss a day your not playing catch up but rather you just keep on plugging along. A great bible study for busy mom's!

Last year we did Tim Keller's "The Prodigal God" for our Women's conference and it was fantastic. We are currently doing Angela Thomas' book, "A Beautiful Offering." Only a few weeks in, but we are pleased.

This is not for the faint of heart but it is excellent! Passion Pursuit by Linda Dillow & Juli Slathery. It is very good, bold & timely. I would recommend for married women only (all ages).

Here's a couple of possible studies:
Power of God's Names, Tony Evans, or Power of a Praying Wife
I've heard good things about both of them! :)

I would say any of Jen Wilkin's studies, Kelly Minter's newest study What Love Is on 1, 2 and 3rd John. Seamless by Angie Smith is brand new and worth looking in to.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
