My Review:

Just yesterday I was watching and discussing one of Sheila's appearances with Women of Faith at my ladies bible study and today I am reviewing her newest book which is a DVD based bible study and lesson guide.  I did not have access to the DVD so this is a review of the participant's guide only.

This bible study is about the Ten Promises that the Lord has given us:

Jesus - I Need Something to Hold On To
Provision- I Don't Have Enough
Peace- I'm Afraid and Feel Alone
Confidence-I Can't See God's Plan in this Pain
Love- I Don't Believe that Anyone Could Really Love Me
Grace- I Have Failed
Hope- I'm Broken
Strength- I Feel Things Are Crashing Around Me
More- I Know There's Something Better
Home- I Have a Future

This study is set up in a similar fashion to recent Beth Moore studies I have done.  A bible study watches the DVD together then discusses it in their small group.  Then there are four lessons for the participant to complete independently.  The book is well laid out with introspective questions that challenge the participant. 

From what I can see without having read the book or seeing the DVD lessons, I believe that this will be a great bible study and I will recommend it to my bible study.
