Happy Tuesday!! Shay and I had a reader (thank you, Meghan!) e-mail us asking for some great bible study recommendations. I remembered blogging about my favorite devotional books, but when I got her e-mail I knew I needed to do a Top Three post about my favorite bible studies! I couldn't narrow it down to just three (sorry!), so I'm sharing my top five faves I've already read and a few on my to-read list.
#1 Restless by Jennie Allen
Shay and I heard Jennie Allen back at DotMom in the fall. I was instantly a big fan. I read her book Restless and then did the bible study. I'd strongly encourage you to check it out. This study is all about figuring out the special way God designed you to do amazing things with the gifts you've been given and the experiences you've had.
A friend posted Sacred Holiday's Christmas study and I purchased it without doing much research. I enjoyed the Christmas devotional so much that I ordered the Easter one. These devotionals are all about keeping the true meaning behind holidays important in the midst of all the celebrating. I think you can still order the Easter study-Following Jesus' Life and I'll let you know when the next one will be out.
#3 Beth Moore studies
Beth Moore can bring it in the bible study department, right? I always take away so much. Usually her studies take a little more time, so I haven't done one lately. These two...A Woman's Heart and Esther are studies I've completed and were awesome!
I want to do the Children of the Day study soon!
I've also heard great things about the Daniel study as well!
#4 Jen Hatmaker studies
I absolutely love Jen Hatmaker. These bible studies are quick reads and perfect for moms trying to juggle it all. She totally relates!
This is one of my favorite devotionals.
And...I've heard awesome things about this book. It's on my to-read list.
#5 Kelly Minter studies
I did this Ruth study a long time ago, but I learned a lot. She dives into the character of Ruth and you look at her in a new way.
These are a few more on my to-read list...
What Love Is by Kelly Minter
The Best Yes (Bible Study) by Lysa Terkeurst
Gideon by Priscilla Shirer
Freefall to Fly by Rebekah Lyons
Now it's your turn. If you have a bible study you've enjoyed, please share!! I'm looking forward to getting some new ideas. Thank you!!!
