235 Loved by God

If your women's group is looking for a good Bible study for the spring months, I'd like to recommend Liz Curtis Higgs' "Loved by God; trusting his promises and experiencing his blessings." It is a 7 week study (workbook, DVD) of Genesis 25 and 27-29 using the lives of Jacob and Esau, Leah and Rachel, to help you see God's plans for your own life. Mrs. Higgs has a delightful sense of humor but never strays from the basic text.

The recorded presentations are shorter than some we've used, and the workbooks only require about 20 minutes a day--also shorter than others we've used (and which I skip through a lot). So this gives your group plenty of time for discussion, sharing and prayer.

Liz is an "encourager" and a self-described "prodigal."

From her bio: "Feature articles about Liz have appeared in more than 250 major newspapers and magazines across the country, and she has been interviewed on more than 600 radio and television stations, including guest appearances on PBS, A&E, MSNBC, NPR, CBC Canada, BBC Radio Scotland, Focus on the Family, and Janet Parshall's America.

A member of Novelists, Inc., Liz's primary writing focus now is historical fiction, in particular novels set in eighteenth-century Scotland. To aid in her research, she has visited the U.K. on nine occasions, including an extensive "Heart for Scotland" 12-city book tour in October 2003. She is a member of the Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society, and supports the National Museums of Scotland, Historic Scotland, and the National Trust for Scotland.

Liz is the author of twenty-two books, with more than three million copies in print. Her fiction includes three historical novels and two contemporary novels . . ."
