These perfect bound books are ideal for any elective study your church may offer. They would be great for Ladies Auxiliary or Men's Brotherhood. Youth Group and Teen Bible Studies would benefit by using them. Because of their thirteen week format they could also make an interesting one-quarter alternative study for a BTC or Sunday School class. If you are looking for a way to energize your Wednesday evening Bible study, this would be a great solution!

A look at the way our faith and God’s blessings on our lives add up to a powerful testimony that we can use to make a tremendous impact on the lives of the many people whose paths cross ours each day.

Lessons 1-4 deal with
      Women with Faith: Believing Is Seeing! (Believing God’s Word means seeing His blessings!) We all have troubles, including Mary and other of our biblical “foremothers.” But believing that He will keep His promises—in spite of our circumstances—turns our fear into faith when things get tough. We’ll learn important lessons about faith from four women of the Bible who believed and were blessed.

Lessons 5-8 deal with
      Women with Testimonies: Seeing Is Telling! (Seeing His blessings compels us to tell others what He has done for us.) On two separate occasions, in the book of Luke, two people were told by an ANGEL that God would work a miracle in their lives. The reactions of the two were quite different. Zechariah doubted and was silenced. Mary believed, and she sang! Her song, recorded in Luke 1:46-56, is called the Magnificat, which means “My soul magnifies the Lord.” The Magnificat, one of the most beloved passages in Scripture, has blessed Christians throughout the ages. In other words, this is Mary’s testimony. In these lessons, we’ll be looking at the “testimonies” of Mary and three other women in the Bible.

Lessons 9-14 deal with
      Women with Influence: Telling Is Touching! (Telling what He’s done for us touches the lives of others.) Get us women together at a potluck or baby shower and we usually can’t be quiet. We love telling each other about what’s going on in our lives. But mention the words: “share your testimony” and a loud silence often falls across the room. For some reason, we have a fear of preparing and presenting our testimonies. Yet, given the profound potential we as women have to influence those around us, a powerful and succinct testimony at the tips of our tongues might be one of the most practical and effective tools we’ll ever use in our Christian walk. So the pages of these lessons will serve as a “testimony workshop.” We’ll look at the many different ways women can put together and present their testimonies—whether they’re at the office, on the playground, with a hurting friend, or in front of their church family—and offer helpful strategies for doing that effectively (i.e., keep it relevant, not preachy; take out religious jargon; etc.) We’ll talk about the fact that one woman doesn’t equal one testimony; each woman has as many testimonies about the work of God in her life as she has people to share them with. These lessons will include testimonies of real women as well as several homework assignments encouraging lots of prayer, study, reflection, writing and sharing, bringing to a powerful close our study on the influence of women for God.

The physical heart is an amazing creation of God. One's life literally depends on the health of his heart. Likewise, the spiritual heart dictates one's fellowship with others and God. In this third book of a series, Peters shares God's remedy for a healthy spiritual heart. The book concludes by looking into the lives of women of the Bible how they sought to control their won heart problems.

     Many people are hurting emotionally and spiritually. Erroneous sources of love have misled people to believe that God’s love is no different from the love they have experienced from those around them: conditional and based on one’s own worth. This study presents the true source of love: God. Not only is God’s love unconditional and obtainable, but children of God can express that same kind of love in their lives. You will be challenged to love others as God loves them.

About the Author:

Dr. Thomas Steele presently holds his DMin in Christian Counseling from Andersonville Baptist Seminary. He has pastored several churches and presently pastors Union Avenue Baptist Church in Bogalusa. Louisiana. Dr. Steel and his wife, Stacey, have been married fourteen years. They have two children.

Dr. Steele is a native of East Texas and was raised in a violent and dysfunctional home. The pain he suffered as a child caused a great deal of suffering when he became an adult and created a feeling of unworthiness in his life. Although he had trusted Christ at the age of eight, for many years he thought that God's love was based on his worth. Since he felt that he had no worth, God's love was illusive and conditional. After sitting under many years of preaching, Dr. Steele realized that the image of God was being perpetuated by preachers everywhere. His desire in writing this book is to present a no nonsense, biblical perspective on love without all the trappings of most of the emotional jargon that is attached to the subject today. His direct approach in this book concerning God's love hopefully will help many, for the first time, begin to understand the love of God, how wonderful and expansive it is and how to express it to others.

Money is a controversial topic in churches today. Faith and prayer are each mentioned in about five hundred verses. Money and possessions are mentioned in over twenty-three hundred verses! Not only that, about two-thirds of the parables Jesus spoke about dealt with money and possessions! The goal of this study is to train you to become a better steward and to find God's plan for your finances. This is where true financial freedom is attained. This study focuses on maintaining an eternal perspective on life, having unity with your spouse, developing a faith-based decision making process and finding security in Christ, not money. It is imperative to have biblically wise counsel to grow in this area.

After this, this study will focus your attention on financial wisdom. This area will continue the educational program but with a larger focus on day-to-day planning and real-life issues.
