Lies Women Believe by Nancy Leigh DeMoss Wolgemuth–Book Review

 

lies2

“Many women live under a cloud of personal guilt and condemnation,” says Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. “Many are in bondage to their past. Others are gripped by fear of rejection and a longing for approval. Still others are emotional prisoners.”

Everyone encounters lies throughout their lives. The Devil is the Father of lies, and will do anything he can to get you to believe lies. Starting in the Garden of Eden, Satan attacked the first woman, Eve, with a lie. In this updated version of Lies Women Believe, Nancy Leigh Wolgemuth covers several lies that women today are faced with and corresponding truths that will help them overcome these lies. She covers topics suchas, lies about God,  themselves, priorities, children, emotions, circumstances, and more. The only thing that can conquer these lies is the Truth, the Truth of God’s Word.

 

The Lies Women Believe Study Guide is a corresponding study guide that helps you dig deeper into the book, and search the Scripture to help you recognize and overcome the lies the Devil will throw at you. (And he will come at you with lies, no Christian is exempt!) Each chapter in the guide is divided into three sections: In a Nutshell (overview), Exploring the Truth, and Walking Together in the Truth (for group study).

I have absolutely loved this book and study guide! I highly recommend it to every Christian woman! One of the things I found most interesting, was in the beginning of each chapter, she starts with a short snippet of something that looks like Eve’s journal. What she may have thought at different stages of her life, or things she may have gone through that correlates to the Lies that will be covered in that chapter. I learned so much through each chapter, and there were some lies I know I myself have believed at one time or another.

The Study Guide was so helpful. While you can use it for group studies, I did it as an individual study and it worked perfectly! I love how in this guide it doesn’t just ask you questions about what’s in the book, it makes you dig deeper in God’s Word giving you Scripture after Scripture to look up and further study for yourself. I have done other studies where they’ll ask you according to page #….what did you learn about this? It was so refreshing to do a study that takes you straight to the ultimate source of Truth, God’s Word.

Overall, I can’t say enough how much I loved this entire book/study! I feel more equipped as a Woman of God to recognize the Devils lies, and overcome them with the Truth of God’s Word. I truly have learned a lot from everything I’ve ever read that Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth has written. I pray that you will learn just as much from this study as I did!

Mornings with Tozer–Book Review

 

This 365 daily devotional book is full of devotionals taken from some of A. W. Tozer’s sermons. They are a perfect way to start your day.

 

This devotional was great, each day’s devotion was short and to the point. At the beginning is the Scripture the devotion is taken from, then there’s the devotion, and at the end a short prayer. All Scripture in this devotional is from the KJV, which I really appreciate since that’s the version I use, and it’s hard to find devotionals that use it sometimes! I enjoyed learning from the wisdom of Tozer. Overall, I loved the devotional, but to be honest, sometimes I just felt like I needed more, like I didn’t get much from it. (This could just be a personal thing, I just want to be completely honest with you!) I do still recommend this devotional book!

I Am Devotional by Diane Stortz–Book Review

 

Our God has many names that show different aspects of His character. As we learn about each name we learn to trust Him more, and ultimately love Him more and become closer to Him. As an adult I love learning about the names of God.

 

I love the idea of teaching the names of God to my children. Before I got this devotional I received a free printable in my email that had some of the names of God, the meanings and verses to learn along with them, and started that with my children. They enjoyed that so much I decided to get the devotional to go along with it. I love the way this devotional is on the level of my children, and it helps them understand it. It starts out with a Bible verse, then has a little devotional about each name and the application of it. Then it ends with a little prayer to emphasize the application and has a set of discussion questions sometimes with a little extra study in another Bible passage. My kids love it too! They have learned a lot through this particular devotional. Definitely a great devotional for your kids!

Pleasing God rather than others

wp-1486223138966.jpg

Today I just wanted to share with you something I learned in my devotions. I’m currently reading Daughters of Grace by Kristin Schmucker of the Daily Grace Co. I’m loving it, as I am learning about women in the Bible who were just like us, they had their faults, yet God used them in many different ways.

Today I learned about some women I don’t believe I’ve ever heard about (or if I have it’s been a while). We find a group of women in Exodus 1, the Hebrew Midwives. These women were told by Pharaoh to kill any baby boys born to the Jewish women. Instead of listening to Pharaoh, these women obeyed God and chose to save all the baby boys. God rewarded these women for their trust in Him and gave them families of their own. Because of their bravery they helped save the nation. I want to be a woman who would rather please God than others.

This really spoke to me, especially since it’s not a story you hear often. It challenged me, because sometimes I worry too much about pleasing others and wanting others to like me. I should be more concerned about pleasing God, He’s who really matters! I know I’m probably not the only one out there as a Christian woman, who finds herself longing to please others, or just wanting to be liked by everyone. I hope this story touches you as much as it touched me. Go read it for yourself.

Moments with the Savior Devotional by Ken Gire–Book Review

moments

There are sixty-six devotionals in this book that take you on a journey through the different events and day-to-day life of Jesus Christ. First Gire lays out the Scripture, then he lays out a meditation on that Scripture, and finally he ends each one with a prayer. It is designed to help you develop a more intimate relationship with your Savior.

 

I had read one of Ken Gire’s books before, and loved it, which is why I wanted to read this one. Gire has a way of describing events in the life of Christ that will make you feel like you are right there with Him and His disciples watching it all unfold. I just love it! I mean you read the Bible, and you may understand it, but there’s still that distance. It’s really wonderful to be able to get into the story and see it through the eyes of thoses involved. My favorite by far was the birth of Christ. You read about the birth of Christ in the Bible and you may think (as a woman), “Man I can’t imagine giving birth in a stable.” Well Gire describes it very well. Mary laboring on a donkey while Joseph is trying to find somewhere for them to stay and for her to give birth. Him trying to figure out what to use as a crib, and bedding. Mary having contractions, and finally giving birth. I won’t spoil it all for you, but it was amazing, it really gave me a brand new perspective. Highly, highly recommend this devotional!
