This portion of God's Word contains treasures to aid us in our hurried, harried, and pressured lives.Leader kit contains: 6 DVDs (10 teaching segments and bonus content),1 Member Book, and 1 Leader Guide.  


My Review:   
I am going to start this review by saying that author Beth Moore is not only an outstanding author but an absolutely amazing speaker, and teacher. One who loves the Lord and studying to know with out doubt what God wants women to know. 

This was a bible study that I did a couple of years ago with our ladies at our church. There was not a time with in this study that I was not only made to set up and take notice of my own life now, but my past as well. How that I had held onto things. How those things affected me now. 

Through out the study, author Beth Moore takes you to places on dvd each week, (once a week) that I loved hearing about. History, Queen Esthers life, family, God's Word and how it deals with our life's today. 

If you ever have the chance to be involved in any of author Beth Moore's study's you will greatly enjoy it. She is very personable, down to earth and the dvd's are awesome. I have not had the chance to see her in person but would LOVE to.

So due to the above, and know that if I could I would most assured give it a higher rating,  I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 

Five Clock Rating!!!  
Disclosure: I did not receive this book for my honest opinion and review. But the opinions are my own and yours may differ.

About the Author:  


 FROM THE AUTHOR'S WEB PAGE: Beth founded Living Proof Ministries in 1994 with the purpose of teaching women how to love and live on God’s Word. She has written numerous books and Bible studies, including Breaking Free, Believing God, and When Godly People Do Ungodly Things, that have been read by women of all ages, races, and denominations. Through the years, American missionaries and expatriates have taken the Bible studies overseas, resulting in Beth Moore Bible study groups popping up all over the world. Beth’s Living Proof Live conferences have taken her to thirty-nine states since 1994 and have been attended by more than 421,000 women. God has graciously given her the opportunity to speak to the body of Christ in many different countries, including Ireland, England, Singapore, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and India. With great joy, she began a radio ministry in 2004 called Living Proof with Beth Moore.

Ever the storyteller, Beth is known to pepper her teaching with stories and poems written from the perspective of pertinent characters. She communicates with great energy, passion, humor, warmth, and grace.

Beth attends Houston’s First Baptist Church, where she hosts an interdenominational Tuesday-night Bible study for women in her city. Because of her burden for unity in the body of Christ, Beth counts serving women of all denominations as one of her greatest privileges in life.

Beth and Keith praise God for 28 years of marriage. They enjoy traveling, hiking, drinking coffee on the back porch, eating Mexican food, making each other laugh, walking their dogs, Beanie and Sunny, and being grandparents. Amanda and her husband, Curtis, serve at a church in the Dallas area and have a one-year-old son named Jackson. Melissa, who shares her mother’s appreciation for the Greek language, is completing her Master’s degree in Biblical exegesis.
