One of the most tedious parts of leading a Bible study is deciding on and ordering all of the materials. We've taken the pain out of that by putting together a one-year curriculum for women. If you lead a women's group, these studies will give you variety, depth, and interest. Or if you teach a Sunday school class, this will give you enough material for the year. Or maybe you just want to work through a year's worth of studies on your own or with a friend. If any of those are true, this is for you.
We've assembled a nice mix of studies that includes topics such as finding balance in our lives, managing our emotions, improving our relationships, handling stress, and overcoming fear. Plus, we've thrown in some movie discussion guides that will add variety and keep things fun.
Because of our downloadable studies and liberal policy that allows you to make up to 1,000 copies, gone are the days that you have to put in advance orders and collect money for each study book.
In this packet, we've included 53 sessions, so you are even covered for Leap Year! And because it would be costly to order the studies individually, we've discounted them as a package by more than 55%.
