Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Modern Christian wives and mothers are expected to wear a lot of different hats these days. The image of the 1950s housewife is a far cry from the go-getters of today. Wives and mothers can take care of children, households and husbands, all while running a business and chairing the PTO. Somewhere in the hustle and bustle of modern life, women often lose track of their most important source of strength, their relationship with Christ. For all the conveniences the modern age brings, it brings headaches as well, and many women find themselves in a never-ending rat-race of house cleaning, nose wiping and soccer games. It is important for women to take time to meditate on the Word and spend personal time with God. Author, speaker, wife and mom, Lysa Terkeurst understands this lack of spiritual mediation all too well. Terkeurst is the author of a dozen best-selling Christian women's books, and the president of Proverbs 31 ministries. Despite her insanely busy schedule, however, Terkeurst not-quite-expertly handles the day-to-day business of life with a sense of good humor and peace that could only be a by-product of a strong relationship with Jesus Christ, and a healthy view of herself in His plans. In "Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl', Terkeurst explores the phenomena that is the life of the average Christian wife and mother. First published by Zondervan in October 2009, 'Becoming More.' is a light-hearted, yet insightful book about Christian life for women. Terkeurst puts herself on the same level as her readers immediately, by sharing anecdotal stories about her life, and how it relates to her message. This down-to-earth approach is engaging and is a running theme throughout the book. From an abortion in her early twenties to a brownie catastrophe as a mother, Terkeurst relates both painful and humorous details of her experiences and how they each led her to her eventual complete dedication of her life to God's work. Terkeurst plainly states in the introduction of 'Becoming More.' that she wishes to convey to women the power of a strong walk with God in their lives, and how giving up being strong, independent women and learning to be completely dependent on God is not giving up, rather it is claiming a strength born only of grace. Terkeurst does this excellently, eliciting a desire on behalf of the reader to be more proactive in their spiritual walk. For the busy supermom of today, 'Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl' is not only a lighthearted, buoyant read, but moreover it is an inspired, compelling guide to re-establishing a meaningful, fruitful Christian life.
If you are weary from the routine-oriented Christian path, it is perhaps because you have yet to experience the true miracle of a close connection with God, an understanding of what He has ready for you in this moment and on this earth. It is possible, of course, to move from one day to the next simply going through the motions of Christianity, which would necessarily involve prayer, service attendance, and generosity. But does that yield any degree of fulfillment when it comes to knowing God and experience Him personally and on a daily basis. Lysa TerKeurst's newest book, Becoming More Than A Good Bible Study Girl, is offered as a retreat from this manner of Christian living and offers insight into the ways in which we personally can develop a closer and more intimate connection with the Lord. Based upon her personal experience, the book seeks to inform readers of there true potential as Christians. TerKeurst highlights points that provide you with an outlet for growth and transformation on many levels. It may be what God has in store for you anyway. TerKeurst is a recognizable figure in the Christian community. Not only is she an accomplished an award-winning author of faith-based works, but she is also the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and co-host of its national radio program, which has hundreds of thousands of subscribers. Becoming More Than A Good Bible Study Girl will be an excellent reading for anyone who wishes to expand their understanding of what it means to be truly Christian or for readers who seek answers to the questions of God's reason for placing you on this planet. It is a truly engaging read that will bring you into a deeper and more meaningful awareness of God's plan for you.
I was truly inspired to be and instructed how to be more than just a good Bible study girl. Excellent book. I've been a Christian all my life and every once in a while need a little help to keep going, and this was it.
This book has some wonderful insights about incorporating Biblical concepts into everyday to enrich your life and those around you.
Purchased this book at a store closing and found it to be a really great deal. As a regular podcast listener of the Proverbs 31 Ministry I was delighted to find the author's book.
