Finding Balance: Loving God with Heart and Soul, Mind and Strength is a six-week video-based Bible study of New Testament women. It will help the women in your group consider the question of balance in their lives—between service and worship, duty and devotion, doing and being. Author Becca Stevens will guide the study, examining the lives of New testament women such as Mary and Martha, Lydia, Mary the mother of Jesus, the Canaanite woman, and Mary Magdalene. Becca will conclude the study by exploring the anointings of Jesus Christ, in which women played a crucial role. The leader spends little time in preparation and is free to participate fully in the Sisters group. This kit includes: Videocassette and DVD with the initial gathering segment and a 15-minute segment for each week, 1 Participant's Workbook for daily reading and reflection, and 1 Leader's Guide to facilitate your group discussion (45-75 mins.)
