Each week a different woman of the Bible and it has been perfect since each lesson stands alone. Our summer attendance can vary so no one misses out if they have to skip a week. The videos and questions generated lively discussion.
Ladies of Faith Leader5 Stars Out Of 5Twelve Women of BibleFebruary 26, 2015Ladies of Faith LeaderMy life group enjoyed this study. Each woman of the Bible seemed to relate (In God's way) to at least one specific person in our group. Discussions were open and interactive. It allowed us to pour over His word and learn more about who we are as women of God. It was surprising to all of us how relevant these twelve women are to today's women.
