Grow in Faith with Other Women
The Bible itself provides many examples of women growing in faith together. Through the story of Mary and Martha of Bethany, women will learn to embrace their diversity as sisters in Christ. God has blessed the body of Christ with a variety of spiritual gifts, personalities, and life experiences. By discovering and combining these, women can learn to complement one another in serving the church and reaching out in love to others. Together they will realize their potential for accomplishing the purposes that God has for them.
With relevance for life today, Face-to-Face with Mary and Martha guides women to apply biblical principles in their relationships as sisters in Christ. From the author's many years of experience in women's ministry, she shares personal stories that illustrate the principles studied. This Bible study is ideal for individuals, pairs of women in mentoring relationships, or for small groups of women. A leader's guide is also included.
