Lately, it seems as if I have spoken with several women who have said, “Do you have any good Bible study ideas for me? I’m not well versed in the Bible. I’d like to study the Bible more but I looking for a Bible study that would teach me something and be easy to understand.”
Well… meet my friend Dayna Bickham. Really… in real life, this lovely lady is my friend. She’s encouraged me, prayed for me, and made me laugh outrageously. I am blessed!
Dayna just released her eBook, The Purpose of the Chosen, which is now available for kindle through Amazon.com.
Here’s what I said, when Dayna asked me to endorse her book a few months ago…
In The Purpose of The Chosen, Dayna Bickham quiets the lies I’ve believed most of my life… those lies that say I’m not enough. Sharing the story of a young shepherd boy named David chosen by God to slay a giant named Goliath; Dayna reminds me that I, too, have been chosen by God for His good work. The lies of “not enough” are quieted in the truth of God’s love. – Heidi Kreider, author The Secret of Counting Gifts
I firmly believe that God used Dayna’s words to quiet that lie that I believed for over 40 years. That lie that says…
you’re not good enough
nothing you do matters
God choses better people to do His work
Thankfully, by telling the story of a shepherd boy named David and a giant named Goliath, God used Dayna’s words to gently convince me that I… me… Heidi Kreider… has been chosen by God for His good works. He chose me! He has a plan for me and He equips me for what He calls me to do. Dayna reminded me that God’s love quiets that truth and that God’s Word is His Truth for my life.
Dayna’s book is laid out in six sections with group study questions available for small group use at the end of the eBook. Whether used as a personal Bible study or a small group study, the questions are worth the time it takes to explore each one.
I am so thankful for Dayna and for this new resource. And, I’m thrilled to have a new answer to give my friends who asks, “Do you have any good Bible study ideas for me?”
