yadsendeW eM roF skroW-Bible Study Ideas/Books for Womens Group

Photobucket Well, today is BACKWARD Works for Me Wednesday so I get to ASK a question of all you bright and wonderful people!!

I'm looking for some ideas for Bible Studies for Women- either individual or for a group. I'd love any ideas. I'm looking for some for myself and possibly some that I can lead a group over the Internet- sort of a Cyber Space Bible Study. Any ideas? What are some that you've done that have really blessed you?

Also, I am really feeling the Lord leading me to become involved in the Women's Program Committee at our church and I'm really feeling lead to start a Reading Group. I'd love to hear some ideas of some good books that you'd recommend! They don't necessarily have to be Christian based but they do need to be appropriate for a Christian group to read and discuss.

I appreciate any input!!!

Check out more Works for Me Wednesday questions over at Rocks in My Dryer!

We are doing Femine Appeal by Carolyn Mahney. (I think that is how you spell her last name!) OR Debbie Pearl's Created to be His helpmeet is good but I feel she can be a little....ecentric? Good luck!

My Women's Bible Study is doing Bad Girls of the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs. Another one we really liked was The Frazzled Female by Cindi Wood. And our next one is Get a Life by Vicki Courtney. For book club suggestions-My Sister's Keeper by Jodie Picoult, Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, or The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards. I loved ALL of these!

I'm in the middle of the Believing God study which has been life changing.

Books that would be great are the Savannah from Savannah series. Awesome.

I'm part of a book club blog that always has some good ideas for books. Check it out!

One of my favorite bible studies is Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow - it is a little older but the content is so relevant. There is also a 12 week study guide with questions in the back of the book.

I don't know if it would make a good study book, but a book I read that really blessed me was Confessions of a Good Christian Girl: The Secrets Women Keep and the Grace That Saves Them by Tammy Maltby and Anne Christian Buchanan.

Calm my Anxious Heart is one of my favorite studies ever.

Also, Lysa Terkeurst's What happens when women say Yes to God is awesome.

For book club, have you read anything by Susan May Warren (fun romantic stuff) or Tricia Goyer? Both are excellent writers.

I'm on my 4th or 5th Beth Moore bible study & I love them all!

I always learn a lot in a Beth Moore Bible study.
For a church book club... the Yada-yada prayer group books might be a good selection.

Overwhelmed! said...

Beth, I'm not involved in a bible study at the moment so I have no suggestions to offer you. It looks as though you've already gotten quite a few great ones!

I wanted to let you know that I've got some free books up for grabs as part of my March Pay It Forward Book Exchange. Stop by if you're interested in a chance to win. :)

The (Almost) Amazing Mammarino said...

“God Said Yes” by Heather Hornback-Bland, AWESOME BOOK!!!!! She was accidentally run over by her mother at age 4, has had 187+ operations, 13 medical miracles, and has led the most incredible life! She has the most amazing outlook on life. Even after all she’s been through, there are no pity parties and she is such a go-getter. She has a strong faith in the Lord which has gotten her through. A must read, especially if you’re ever feeling sorry for yourself!

Hey Beth!! I'm doing the Frazzled Female by Cindi Wood and it is wonderful. She also has one after that called Fabulously Frazzled or Gloriously Frazzled or something like that. I hear it is great too. Also, He Speaks to Me by Priscilla Shirer is amazing. Both very user friendly and doable and life changing I might add.

How fun to see my "Confessions of a Prayer Wimp" on your reading list! I'd love to hear your feedback on the book. Thanks for the recommendation!
