Based on the New York Times bestselling book The Women of the Bible Speak, learn to write your own story and journey of faith as you make the connections between God’s specific attention to the female heart through a deeper, more personal connection to the women of the Bible.
In the sixteen lessons, you’ll be challenged to consider the parallels between each woman’s story and your own. You’ll be asked to reflect on how God worked in their lives and how he’s working in yours.
Each of the sixteen characters in the book will have a chapter in the workbook that will take the user through exercises such as:
*READ invites you to read key moments of each woman’s life in the Bible and connect with her story.
*REFLECT provides an opportunity to identify specific character traits, responses to God, and acts of faith, as well as your similar traits, responses, and acts of faith.
*PRAY asks you to prayerfully consider how this woman’s story ties into the work God is doing in your life right now.
Every other lesson features an extra bonus section:
*PAIRS reveals that individually, every woman’s story is powerful. Here, you’ll consider the women in pairs, finding the commonalities in their callings and challenges. Some of the women knew one another. Others were connected simply by a thread of common purpose, one that becomes clearer by studying the women side by side.

Mothers And Daughters Of The Bible Speak$26.99Add to cart
God always keeps His promises, but not always in the way we expect….
“Have faith” is a phrase we hear all the time. But what does it actually look like to live it out? In The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak, Shannon Bream examines the lives of biblical women to see how God’s plans can turn our worlds upside down. She tells the story of Jochebed, a mother who took enormous risks to protect her son, Moses, from Pharaoh. Could Jochebed have imagined that God’s actual design for her son involved flight into exile and danger? And yet this was all part of the master plan to deliver Israel from slavery. Another biblical mother, Rebekah, made terrible choices in an attempt to ensure her son’s place in history. And a daughter, Michal, struggled to keep her faithless father, Saul, from sin, while battling pride in herself.
Through these stories, Shannon explains the intimate connection between faith and family–and how God’s unexpected agenda can redefine the way we think about family. Not all of these mothers and daughters in the Bible were paragons of virtue. Like us, they were human beings who faltered and struggled to do their best. While some heard God’s voice, others chose their own paths. Through the lens of their imperfections, we can see how God used their stories to bring about His divine plans. He’s still doing the same work in our lives today.
The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak shows that faith is more often a twisting road than a straight line. Yet, as the stories of biblical families attest, at the end of these journeys lies greater peace and joy than we could ever imagine.
Impact Of Ordinary People$10.99Add to cart
Moses, David, Joseph, Peter, Paul…these are just some of the well-known names of the Bible. They are the subject of countless sermons and stories that have inspired Bible lessons from childhood to adulthood. But Scripture also contains a supporting cast of ordinary men and women often overlooked in Bible study. These lesser-known characters deserve accolades for their contribution to God’s redemptive story.
In a three-part series, Don Wilkerson shares the impact of those less known in the Bible, both named and unnamed. These not-so-familiar characters are brought to life in short but thought-provoking chapters with lessons that remind us that God often uses ordinary people in extraordinary ways to build His kingdom.
For those seeking discipleship material for personal growth, The Impact of Ordinary People will aid individual and small group Bible study. This three-part series is also a helpful resource for pastors and Christian leaders to develop unique and one-of-a-kind sermons.
Joseph Of Arimathea$16.99Add to cart
Joseph of Arimathea tells the story of the man who took upon himself the task of burying Jesus after His crucifixion. Joseph, who is briefly discussed in all four gospel accounts, is a mere footnote in Scripture, but his actions speak volumes and give the working Christian an example of how to live for Christ in a world that opposes Him.
Joseph of Arimathea reaches through the verses of Scripture to our own generation in a powerful, relevant, and compelling way. He teaches us that the ordinary matters. An ordinary person, living an ordinary life, can be an instrument in the hands of God to be used for His purposes.
Looking closely at the life of this disciple, Joseph of Arimathea defines what it means to be a person of the small print and offers a paradigm-shifting perspective on how to be a disciple of Christ in a secular world. At a time when influence, followers, and clout are the order of the day, Joseph reminds us that small acts of faithfulness can lead to astounding influence and impact through justice, conscience, and power.
Joseph of Arimathea validates the contemporary mindset of preparing to stand up for what is right, often in the face of, an increasingly hostile culture.

10. The Evangelist Has Promised To Relent
11. The Evangelist Challenges Our Cultural Prejudices
12. The Evangelist Is Full Of Compassion
Jonah is famous for being a reluctant evangelist. But God had other plans!
If we’re honest, we are also often very reluctant when it comes to telling others about Jesus. We can learn from God’s dealings with Jonah about how to be effective for the Lord, whom we love and want to serve. We can move from can’t and don’t to can and do.
Like Jonah we need learn to trust his awesome power (chapter 1), experience his sovereign grace (chapter 2), fear his coming judgment (chapter 3) and share his gut-wrenching compassion (chapter 4). All this is perfectly revealed in Jesus, the divine Evangelist, and as we look to him and as the Holy Spirit fills our hearts with his evangelistic compassion, our hearts will sing with the melodic line of Jonah, “Salvation comes from the LORD” (Jonah 2 v 11) and our lives will erupt with the evangelistic enterprise that our cities so desperately need.
Paul Apostle Of Christ$17.00Add to cart
His Story Will Change the World, But Only If It’s Shared in Time
Paul, Apostle of Christ is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life every time he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero’s bleakest prison cell. Before Paul’s execution, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of “the Way” and the birth of what will come to be known as the church. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians.
Paul has survived so much–floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure–yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past. He wonders if he has been forgotten . . . and if he has the strength to finish well.
Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to bequeath the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
