Face-to-Face with Mary and Martha
sisters in Christ
Summery:
Through this interactive study 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. As sisters in Christ, they can realize their potential for accomplishing all the purposes that God has for them.


Face-to Face with Elizabeth and Mary
generation to generation
Summery:
After telling Mary that she would be a virgin who gives birth to God’s son, the angel Gabrielle mentions that Mary’s older relative Elizabeth is also having a miraculous pregnancy. The Bible tells us that Mary immediately went to visit Elizabeth. We can only speculate as to why Mary did not stay home with her own mother, but it could be because Mary knew she needed to talk to another woman who could relate to and understand her situation—she needed a Spiritual Mother.


Face-to-Face with Euodia and Syntyche
from conflict to community
Summery:
Women—and men—may not admit to having disagreements or conflicts, but the very lack of admission to this inevitable aspect of relationships accentuates the tremendous need for learning how to deal with conflict. People–including those who develop a close relationship of any kind—will disagree eventually. However, when women avoid resolving disagreements, relationships end without reconciliation, and this compromises ministry success. Face-to-Face with Euodia and Syntyche explores the causes of conflict and how Christians can biblically achieve a resolution and reconciliation.

Well, I see at Woman to Woman, there is a fourth book in the series that I would be especially interested to read...Naomi and Ruth.

I am actually going to have to bookmark that site, because I have recently become a mentor and it looks like there are some good resources there.

Out of the three you are giving away I would probably choose Mary and Martha because I love the theme of learning about different spiritual gifts and using them together to stengthen The Body!!

I would also like the Euodia and Syntyche because I do not know much about them.

I'm most interested in the Euodia and Syntyche book, but will admit it is a hard choice. From the website I see that Janet has many more books in process that I know will minister to many people.

I noticed a book that is a companion guide for women with breast cancer.

I would love to read any of these books but will choose Euodia and Syntyche.

I have never heard of this author until now. So that in itself is something new I learned. I am looking forward to reading more about her Bible Studies.

If I were to win I'd like the Euodia and Syntyche book.

Blessings,

I would be most interested in winning the Euodia and Syntyche book. Why? Because conflict is everywhere and I must admit I am not one who handles it well. This would be a perfect study for me.

In visiting the site I see that there are so many books available. I would like the Mary & Martha one, but would also like the Prodigal Daughter book - my friend would really like to read that one as her daughter has had some problems, but any mother would benefit from this one.

As I said above if I had to choose I would get the Mary & Martha, but any of them would be great!

Thanks for the giveaway!

I learned that a fifth book in the study series will be released in Winter 2011 about Balancing Life and Ministry. I think this one will be great too!

LaVonne said...

I like the Mary and Martha study. I think it would be beneficial for my own study but also be nice for a small group. I really enjoy studies on spiritual gifts.

Linda said...

I'm thrilled with all the resources for women to connect to women. In today's society, women NEED other women, as their lives are so scattered with work and children. This is demonstrated in the studies on Woman to Woman's site.
If I were to choose one of the three, I would choose Face-to-Face with Euodia and Syntyche. I've done a couple on Mary and Martha. The other one I'd like, but isn't being offered is Naomi and Ruth.

Please enter me. Thanks. Great site.

I'd like the Mary and Martha study--I'm working through one on them now, and would love more.
And I learned that Janet is also a speaker!
