Tested By Fire

Over the years, I’ve been known to purchase and attempt to complete several Bible Study’s.  I’ve not been very sucessful at it.  I’m not sure the reason, but my typical pattern is to be gung-ho for the first week, with my attention waning somewhere around the beginning of week 2.  Now, I’m not saying that I haven’t completed any… but I’m best when I am part of a group study.  Not so good on my own.

So I wondered when I agreed to review this 4-week Bible study, if I would be able to finish it and be able to give an honest and truthful review for the author.  Well… Praise Jesus!  Yes.  I finished it!  I loved this study.  I was sad to see it end.  I truly did wish that there were a few more weeks worth of study.  I do hope the author is working on her next study… she is truly gifted!

Check it out, I think you’ll be blessed as I was. Continue reading
