Description : Discover the True Meaning of Being Blessed It’s not easy being a woman. The demands and expectations of us, and those we place on ourselves, can be overwhelming. While trying to navigate this thing called “life,” have you ever longed for a close friend, confidant, or mentor to walk alongside you and encourage you in Biblical womanhood? Debbie Morris did. And yet even as a young minister’s wife, she found herself without someone to fill this all-important role. So she turned to the Bible. Biblical women such as Eve, Sarah, and Miriam had always fascinated her. But now they also became her friends, sisters, and teachers. Through their stories, the Holy Spirit revealed how their lives—both joys and struggles—weren’t that much different from ours today and how they can teach women today to be a grace-filled, life-giving woman of God. In The Blessed Woman, Debbie invites you to learn from these women as well. As she shares her own stories and the stories of discerning women in the Bible, she addresses topics such as overcoming insecurity, finding purpose, establishing priorities, letting go, and waiting. The Blessed Woman reminds us how God longs for every woman to experience His tenderness—and to know the true meaning of being blessed.
Description : What do you believe about women's roles in church leadership? Should women lead groups that include men? Should women preach? Should women be ordained? More importantly, why do you believe what you believe? Plenty of books exist telling women what to think; precious few help women think for themselves, particularly about theological issues. Women, Leadership, and the Bible helps women learn to interpret the Bible and discern for themselves answers to their questions about women's roles in the church, along with any other issue they may face in life. In straightforward, plain language, Dr. Natalie Eastman introduces women to a five-step, easy-to-follow process for studying the Bible and interpreting what they study. This book encourages women that they can think for themselves and can analyze significant theological issues, despite any hesitations they may have, any conflict surrounding an issue, or any lack of theological training. By the time readers finish this book, they will have a biblically defendable, theologically reasoned, and thoroughly discerned understanding of what they believe Scripture says about women's roles and how that understanding could play out within the church. No longer will they feel as though they have nothing to contribute when the subject of women's roles--or any other of life's theological questions--arises.

They were agreed in the survey they had made of the land and in the judgment they passed upon the productiveness of the soil. There was no dispute whatever about the elementary facts which they had noted and brought together. What eye had seen and what ear had heard they related with admirable straightforwardness and accuracy. But the difference was in their interpretation of the facts and the programme it might be wise to follow in the near future. An optimist may lie, especially when he is entering upon the perilous task of special pleading, and a pessimist may also lie, although perhaps not quite so often; but this was not the sin of either the two or the ten. As a body they were quite honest. Caleb and Joshua were not dreamers, nor was their report vitiated by hallucinations. It was a question of religion that separated them from their colleagues and brought them into violent collision. They looked at the problem from the T. O. Selby, The God of the Patriarch, 238. 'A. Maclaren. view-point of God's Covenant, and thought of themselves as links in a firmly welded chain of providential decrees.1 4. It is not much wonder that the news daunted the people. They were thoroughly frightened. They were a young people, only a year or two out of bondage. They had had the great deliverance of the Red Sea to encourage them; but their fears might tell them that that had been a stroke of good fortune on which they could not reckon again. And now, in their deep depression, there rose again that thought--Egypt; as before their hunger had said, Egypt with its flesh-pots rather than this light bread, so now their fears said, Egypt, where at least we were safe, where we could live, though it was in bondage, ..
