Review and giveaway: Becoming a Woman of Grace (giveaway closed)



"To glimpse the fullness of His grace is a life-changing revelation." Cynthia Heald
I recently had the opportunity to review a new Bible study book by Cynthia Heald, Becoming a Woman of Grace (published by NavPress).

This is a great little Bible study tool. It's not very long, just 11 chapters, each only about 6 or 7 pages in length. But there is so much wisdom packed into this little book. Chapters include: "Set Free by Grace", "Growing in Grace", and "Becoming a Gracious Woman", among others.  Each chapter is introduced with a bible scripture and a quote from a Christian author, then is followed by a number of questions on the topic of the chapter. Each question is brief and contains a Bible scripture to look up and reflect on.

I've read many, many Bible study books in my adult life, and this one is definitely one of my favorites.  I especially like the fact that this study is relatively simple and short (a must-have for my busy Mommy life), but it encouraged me to really dig into my Bible and consider what the scriptures have to say on a topic, not just read what someone else thinks about the scriptures.

I highly recommend this book as a great way to start your new year.  You will be changed by it in the best possible way!

One of you will win a copy of this book. US addresses only, please, as I'm mailing it myself :)

I would like to win this as one of my new year resolutions was to reconnect with my spiritual side. This book sounds lovely, to have a bible scripture for reflection sounds like a great beginning.

I would love to do this study because grace is such a central part of my faith - and any tool that directs me to what the Bible has to say about it is something I'd like to check out.
