Women's Study with all the Pieces
What I've learned over the years of conducting bible and women's studies has been gathered into the women's study Wrapped Up: God's Ten Gifts for Women.
Whether you are new to women's studies or well-versed, you will enjoy the Servant Books publication of Wrapped Up: God's Ten Gifts for Women. It has all the pieces that make it an ideal choice.
There is the book itself which explores the ten gifts God gives every woman. These include such things as living a sacramental life, forgiveness and accepting God's love. Other important gifts that women are encouraged to explore include the gift of self and sisters in faith. Each chapter is explored from an Old Testament perspective and a New Testament perspective. (The book is also available on Kindle.)
The accompanying journal gives general instructions on running a study (small or large) and encourages every woman to explore the gifts in-depth.
What makes this a particularly enjoyable study is that there is also an audio component where you can hear each author (Teresa Tomeo and myself) read her chapter. A nice way to use this is play the audio for the group and then let the Spirit move the conversation that surely follows.
As August winds into September and you or your friends begin looking for the perfect woman's study, I am sure you will find Wrapped Up: God's Ten Gifts for Women to be the perfect answer.
God bless you on your journey.
