Book Description

These topical guides will deal with issues that women wrestle with today: God's Will, Living in Christ, Prayer, and Worry.


Reaching an audience across race, socio-economic, denominational, and age boundaries, these guides will enhance the lives of women in America as they empower them in their weekly devotions. The study guides can be used for both individual and group settings.


Women are asking good questions about their faith. With our study guides, we want to join them in their quest for knowledge and lead them in finding the answers they are seeking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down! April 6, 2006
Format:Paperback
I really liked this bible study, I do them on my own and enjoy the quiet time studying. Thought provoking questions, that can make you think before you act, shouldn't the bible do that anyways? To give you an example to pursue peace in our lives, we need to make decisions in our lives that will bring about peace in the future. Another chapter when we take on less its then easy to take on more and get overwhelmed again, we need to pray first before we take on more.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay for individuals July 7, 2005
Format:Paperback
I think this study would be fine for an individual but it is a bit light for a group study. I'm a fan of the Women of Faith organization, however, I was a bit disappointed in the content. There could have been so much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of Insight June 15, 2012
Format:Paperback
Worry and stress both sink their roots into one thing. Fear. Will I get there in time? What will others think? How will this ever work? The questions that plague us day in and day out, worrying at our hearts until they're frayed and desperate, are not the kind of questions that Jesus asked. "Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin.... If then God so clothes the grass...how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith" (Luke 12:27-28).

I have struggled with stress for a very long time. I'm a perfectionist at heart, so when anything goes wrong, or it just looks like it might go wrong, I become a basket case. Yet I know that a life of tension is not what God wants for us! So when I saw this Bible study guide I knew that it was the right thing to get.

I love the format of the WoF study guides. Engaging stories and personal narratives are sprinkled through clusters of thought-provoking questions, with plenty of blank space to scribble down your thoughts and ideas. At the end of every chapter there is a little "trinket to treasure," a picture of an item that is supposed to help you remember the lesson. The leader's guide at the back of the book contains extra information and clarity for nearly every question.

I just finished the guide this morning, and it has given me so many insights! If you deal with worry or stress at all then I highly recommend getting this book for yourself. To read a "tasting dish" of the insights that I have gleaned, see this post: [...]

I won't say that this study guide has solved all of my stress and worry problems, but the scriptures I have studied and the stories I've read have emphasized three important things:

1. Stress and worry are not God's plan for me.
2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it November 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Our Pastor's wife decided that we were going to use this book in our Ladies Bible study this last quarter and I honestly did not want to do it. Just couldnt get into it "I thought"! I decided to give it a good honest try and as I looked up each scripture and even looked at different translations of the Bible and commentaries on my cell phone Ap it became life changing and I received such revelation knowledge each week as I studied. I became excited about it and know even though we did not complete the book because of time (we always take a break during the holidays)I am continuing it on my own with just as much interest as before. If you have trouble with an overcommitted life and difficulty saying 'No', this will teach you how to set those priorities and be focused on the best for you and your family as you serve our Lord.

2.0 out of 5 stars Way too basic and elementary. States the obvious October 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had good intentions, but I found the text to be too basic and elementary. I was somewhat disturbed when she talked about telling her daughter her hair was a bird's nest, etc. It seemed a little hurtful for a young child.

I liked the premise and the idea behind the book, but the execution was not very insightful or well thought out.

Intersting and provocative. Mostly for young christian people who are beginning to learn. There are activities for each chapter and this book would be good for Bible study.
