Excellent DVD and Bible study! I so enjoyed going through this and being challenged to examine my life. I hope to be able to go through it with our Bible study group sometime. Keep up the good work, Cynthia!

Thank you for making this book available for ereader edition. I am studying this book with my friends for Bible Study. It is very helpful, since I find print editions hard to read these days. If one wants to become a Woman of Simplicity this is the book study for you.

I went through this book with a group of women in a weekend retreat, and I highly recommend it. It would be a great study for a quiet time, or for a small group to go through over several weeks. There were several pages I marked for further study. I think this will be my quiet time book for a while.

I just finished this study this morning. I am thankful for its encouragement and all of the lessons God has taught me through it. Like the other studies in this series, Ms. Heald encourages the reader to dig into God's Word and sit with them. In this book, she expounds a bit more than she does in other books, but I enjoyed all the stories she shared. From the beginning, this study encouraged me because it didn't call me to shun the world or become something I don't think is even possible. In a search for simplicity, many people shun the world and think that that will bring a sense of peace and rest. I suppose for some it might. But, I realize now that a sense of peace and rest comes more from trusting the Lord with our days rather than from simply "doing less". Ms. Heald explains that the busyness of our world is never going to go away--so how can we live and rest in the Lord each day? That is the question this study is about. If you find yourself struggling to find peace with the Lord, I'd definitely recommend this study. I've loved it. Please note that I did receive a complimentary copy of this book from NavPress for review.

Becoming a Woman of Simplicity, is the newest volume in Cynthia Heald's series of bible studies from Navpress publishers. To make the most of this book, "all you need is a bible, writing tool and an expectant heart", according to the book. Appropriate for individual or group study, this volume is marketed to be an 11 week bible study course- in which one chapter is covered each week until completeion. As with the other studies in this series each of the 11 chapters covers one aspect or theme concerning the issue of strengthening one's biblical sense of simplicity. For individual study taking 11 weeks to complete this book may be too long; one chapter each day would be a sufficent amount of time to dedicate and to digest the material of each chapter topic. It is not intended that this book be read cover to cover in its entirety in one sitting. It is important that the reader interact/ react to the passages, and questions in order to get the most out of this study. There is room to write down one's thoughts - albeit, not enough room. Perhaps having a journal with extra space would be more appropriate to dedicate enough room to write down thoughtful responses and personal reflections. This study guides the reader to her own understanding by providing applicable biblical verses and thoughts for which the reader can reflect upon. The author's own commentary and thoughts are included under the "thoughts from an older woman" passage in each chapter. There is also a "reflection" section as well. Selected quotes from notable Christian writers are included throughout the text of this bible study as well. As a blogger for Navpress publishers I recieved a free copy of this book for the purpose of writing a review. The opinions expressed in this review are my own.
