The Blessed Woman by Debbie Morris
This book was great! From page 1 to the end - I felt like I was growing closer to God with each page. In fact I used it as part of my devotional each day. When I finished the book, I was wishing there was more to read. I love it when I get sad that a book is ending.
Debbie Morris, the executive pastor of women's ministry at Gateway Church in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, writes this book with such insight into the Word of God and such wonderful application. It is fun to hear her stories and feel like you are not alone.
She takes us through the lives of some well known women of the Bible, like: Eve, Mary, Esther and through some not so known women, like: Jael and Zipporah. She gives fresh new insight, without straying from the true Word of God. After you read about each woman, you feel like you know them better, understand yourself better, and know the heart and nature of God better, too.
This book would make a great book club reading or women's Bible Study. Each chapter had a Study Guide that is great! It is meant to be studied one chapter at a time, with questions that recap, engage, talk, pray, explore, and a list of key messages.
Pick this up, read it, study it, you won't be disappointed.
"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
