Product Description

The newest addition to the Everyday Matters Bible for Women line is a series of study guides that focus on various spiritual practices. The series can be used as a stand-alone Bible study guide for groups or individual use, or as a companion alongside the Everyday Matters Bible for Women.

All spiritual disciplines take practice to incorporate into our daily lives, but two can be particularly difficult to cultivate today: simplicity and silence. We live in a time when so much is vying for our attention--noise has become our natural habitat and distraction is a common companion. But God encourages us to seek him and meet with him, uninterrupted. So how do we put these disciplines into practice?

Readers will work through eight chapters that include articles for reflection, Scripture verses, and discussion questions for deeper thought. Each book also includes a Leader's Guide.

These books are an excellent resource for small groups, Bible studies, and Sunday school classes. Used individually or with a group these booklets will help women delve further into the Scriptures and meditate on various spiritual practices to help them live fully, every day.

The purpose of this study guide series is to help you use spiritual practices to make your own life richer, fuller, and deeper. It can be used as a stand-alone Bible study guide for groups or individuals, or as a companion alongside the Everyday Matters Bible for Women. The twenty-four spiritual practices in this series are Acceptance, Bible Study & Meditation, Celebration, Community, Confession, Contemplation, Faith, Fasting, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Hospitality, Justice, Mentoring, Outreach, Prayer, Reconciliation, Sabbath & Rest, Service, Silence, Simplicity, Solitude, Stewardship, Submission, and Worship.

Each study includes:
• Meditation on selected scripture focusing on a facet of the practice
• Sidebars that feature quotes, insights, or challenges
• Discussion questions
• Points to Ponder
• Prayer
• Exercise for the week
• Takeaway Treasure
• Leader’s Guide
