Review 2 for Cultivating Contentment - eBook
Great Bible Study
Date:March 29, 2012
We are using this book for the Bible Study I lead. It is a very good study even though it is causing some ouches and stepping on toes as we learn to Cultivate Contentment in God. I would definately recommend this to anyone.
This is one of the best Bible Studies I have done in a long time. I suppose because I needed to learn to be content after losing a job I loved after 22 years. I was replaced by a younger woman. I was so devastated it took this study and lots of Bible reading for me to finally forgive and move on. Thank you Women of Faith.
I would recommend this study on a personal, rather than group basis. I really had a difficult time being content with my life and who and how I was. This study took more time than others I've done as it made me focus on my life differently than I wanted to. Once I completed this particular study, I found my focus more positive, appreciative and hopeful instead of negative, unsatisfied, and thankless. It helped me change my way of thinking and believing so that I feel like I am a better person, a more "Content" person.
I am about 2/3 the way through this study - I have been going through it independently. So far I feel it has been excellent and I have really enjoyed it. Sometimes I have had trouble seeing the supporting point of a certain scripture, but when I would look the scripture up in my Life Application Study Bible and read the scripture notes, I have always then been able to see the strength of the scripture. I would highly recommend this study to anyone who might be struggling with keeping a positive attitude and using ALL that God gives us in life for good!
Anytime you can get into the Word with other believers you come away with something positive. This study, however, didn't offer as much as I'd hoped. Many of the scriptures cited for reference didn't support the material or were weak in comparison to other scriptures that could have been used. Our group frequently had to add more scriptures because the study couldn't stand on its own. Many of the authors' comments were insightful and thought provoking, and some weeks were better than others, but overall i thought the study was "average" and one that i sadly would not truly recommend.
