Book Description :
Let’s get real! Don’t you just love authentic people? Aren’t you drawn to women who are transparent and real? There is something fresh and wonderful about women who have nothing to hide and who are not ashamed about who they are . . . even the tough parts. In this twelve-session small group journey, taught by six acclaimed Bible teachers, you will meet a group of amazing women in the Bible who are absolutely real. At first you might wonder why God captured these particular stories in the Bible. But, as you press on, you will discover that their raw and revealing stories of frailties, struggles, sins and brokenness are a real gift to women today. You’ll discover lessons from each of these women that will help you persevere through the circumstances you are facing. Learn how to: Apply biblical lessons to your own modern-day struggles Live through your failures as well as your successes Draw near to God in a world filled with trials Find lasting contentment in every situation Overcome rejection and insecurity Their stories are not fairytales, their road was not easy, and their examples are not perfect. They lived in times and places quite different than ours. Yet they hold up a mirror to our souls that can help us better understand our own story. And in doing so, we find freedom to come to God as we are, with total transparency, honest and real.
