I'm currently doing a Bible study on Becoming a Woman of Freedom.  I'm using a study book written by Cynthia Heald.  This is the second time I have done this study.  I read the book and did the study for the first time back in 1994.  A dear friend brought me this book when my struggle with panic and anxiety was at it's peak.  I grew tremendously during that time and was so blessed by the teaching of the word of God.  I have decided to use this study book again and I'm looking forward to what the Lord will show me this time around.  (By the way, if you live locally and would like to join me, I would love to study God's word with you.  You can contact me through email or the comment section for details.)

From the back of the book...
The Christian life is supposed to be like a race - a race we run freely, unhindered by the burdens of this life.  But often, the baggage we carry holds us back.  It deprives us of our freedom in Christ and makes the race seem strenuous and futile.

If you ever feel that you're making no progress, lacking joy, or being weighed down by your Christian life - in spite of all you're doing to grow and serve - Becoming a Woman of Freedom will give you a second wind.

No matter what your age, circumstance, or spiritual maturity, Cynthia Heald will help you identify and lay aside the burdens that can make you feel "stuck", including:

  • Past hurt and loss
  • Poor self image
  • Approval seeking
  • Busyness
  • Doubt and fear
  • Unhealthy influences
"The goal of this study", writes Cynthia Heald, "is to help and encourage you through the Word, through the thoughts of those who have run the race ahead of you, and through your own reflections on the race you are running."

Becoming a Woman of Freedom will put you on the road to freedom - and help you develop the actions and attitudes you'll need to finish the race with strength.
