This study teams up best-selling authors Carol Kent and Karen Lee-Thorp- one of today's most popular women's authors and one of the leading experts in small group dynamics. By looking at six choices Jesus made consistently, the authors portray Jesus as the model of one who made important choices carefully and wisely. By observing what Jesus chose and how He chose, they help readers notice the many powerful choices life offers them and help them begin to make those choices consciously and well. Readers will learn that when they make decisions based on Christ's example and biblical principles, instead of on mere emotions, they build confidence, hope, and courage, and are empowered to take positive, life-changing action.
In the face of lifes constant demands and ever-changing circumstances, women today can feel helpless. We know were not in control of our worlds. Yet, were not powerless, either. In 6 sessions, this study shows that by following Jesus example, we can make important decisionsusing interruptions as God-appointments, choosing obedience over control, pursuing compassion over conveniencethat will positively affect our lives and the lives of those around us. If using in a group, personal study is needed between meetings.
