This is a gorgeous book that came to me right when I was looking for a new Bible study. It examines some core issues for women in a relational style by sharing other women's thoughts and also takes a good look at what God has to say about it in the Bible. It's full of so much warmth and hope. I'm still working my way through it, but I think it would be a great tool to use in a group or with your best friends. And the price is right. It's really affordable for such a great book! Now here's some official information on it.
About the book: From a deeper relationship with God to harmony in the home, from stronger marriages to more satisfying work: Women Want More.
In What Women Want, bestselling author Lisa T. Bergren and Rebecca Price invite readers to thoughtfully consider their soul-deep longings—and pursue God's best in every area of life. Using in-depth interviews from a national survey and hundreds of personal interviews, biblical narratives, their own personal stories and inspiring quotes, the authors point fellow seekers toward the kind of wholeness God desires, providing lots of fun and inspiration along the way. They explore friendship, how and where to find happiness, health, and more with an eye on physical, emotional, and spiritual matters.
A Bible study, designed for personal or group use and tested with dozens of women's ministries around the country before publication, is included at the end of each chapter.
