I love, no I ADORE, reading books and bible studies, but I will tell you that the topic of Proverbs 31 has always intimidated me and I know I'm not alone. The Perfect Woman described there is unattainable (or so it seems). That's why Amy's study really is a breath of fresh air! She reminds us from the get-go that Only Christ can completely fulfill Scripture. He did so on the cross. That was His job. My job is to accept that and follow Him. We aren't expected to be all that is written in Proverbs 31 and yet, in our imperfections we are still worth "more than rubies."
I needed to hear that. Don't you?
This study is broken into ten chapters, and at the end of every chapter, Amy lists Focused Thoughts, Scripture for Memory, Essential (points made), Useful, and a Bonus. Each chapter takes Proverbs 31 and breaks it down into understandable, usable and attainable pieces of study. I love Chapter 4's reminder that "We should be praying for our husband daily. They face so many fleshly temptations and as their helpmate it is our responsibility to cover them in prayer" and Chapter 6's directive that "We must parent on purpose". And, I'm a huge fan of saving money and resources, so Chapter 8 - Pocket Full of Resources just speaks to me.
So, if you're looking for a personal or group bible study, I wholeheartedly recommend "Pursuit of Proverbs 31"!!
I received a free copy of this book/Ebook/Product to review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations. I am part of The CWA Review Crew.
In any case, there was a boldness to her writing, an honesty that made this well worth the time I spent in study. I loved the part where she said "When I wake up in the morning, before I even brush my teeth, I say good morning to Him. When I see a beautiful landscape while driving, I make sure I praise Him for it. When I need to make a decision I ask Him to help me. When I realize I need money for a bill, I ask Him to supply it and then thank Him for it. When it dawns on me that I messed up, I immediately ask for His forgiveness. I ask Him to keep me away from tempting situations, to grant us safe trips, to keep Satan and his cohorts away, and when I am studying His word I ask him to explain to me what I don't yet understand." Quotes like this are throughout the book showing that she doesn't just have a faith and talk about it but that she also strives to live it. Let us all be able to show our faith as she does.
There were many other wonderful attributes to this book. I do believe this is an excellent purchase, not just for the resources she provides within.Read more ›
If you ever wanted to have a heartfelt conversation with Amy Bayliss, here's your chance. Amy opens here heart to share what God had taught, shown, and told her over the last few years. She lays it all out there- allowing herself to be vulnerable by sharing personal stories, struggles, trials, and accomplishments.
I find it quite easy to relate to Amy as a fellow woman seeking this seemingly elusive Proverbs 31 woman. How refreshing to finally have this "woman" explained as more than just "someone to emulate."
This is more than a book, more than a story, more than a "chat". It is a challenge to leave your failures and fretting in the past and make changes that will improve your future from day one.
Amy gives practical, down-to-earth advice, tips, and suggestions. She shares what works for her and encourages her readers to find what works for them.
I read this book straight through twice. I will now be reading this book a third time, this time REALLY digging in and journaling my journey.
Thank you, Amy, for allowing your readers to have a genuine and real visit with you! I only wished you lived closer so we could sit on the porch, share a pitcher of sweet tea, and get to know each other more! You have inspired me to take the necessary steps to put into action that which I've felt led to do for God and have not done for far too long. Thank you.
