We are all made for connection, but many of us live with walls up and hearts closed. What would it take for us to let go and stand tall and unashamed?
I Am Foundguides us in just that. This six-week Bible study on shame and identity explores how we can own our stories, trust God's affections, and relate honestly with Him and others.
Each week begins with biblical teaching and is followed by five days of guided reflection. Drenched in Scripture, and allowing plenty of space to journal and savor biblical truths, I Am Found welcomes you on a personal journey of transformation through God's Word.
Laura Dingman invites you to build your life on a beautiful, liberating truth: Jesus loves us in our weakness, but He doesn't leave us there.
Ever since this book came into my family. It has been more than a blessing;it is worth every penny.At first I didn't take it serious because I handed it over to my wife after I bought it and she was marveled by it's content. Then my daughter Laurie(the non book lover girl) also read it and became changed by it.That was when I decided I needed to read it myself.Results so far has been great;You inspired me to create a christian blog http://www.penthetruth.com where I also make positive contributions to lives just as you have made some to mine.
This is another visually gorgeous study but it's more than that - it's a beautiful study that will really help you in your quest to figure out how to live a life without shame and to connect more deeply with others.
This is a study that helps us realize that we don't have to live with shame and that God is not keeping us away from Him but He wants to draw us closer. Through living in Him we can learn to let go of the things that hold us back from being authentic and more open with others.
This is a six week study and I absolutely love all the open areas for answering the questions and journaling my thoughts. It's full of great Scripture and Biblical truth that will draw you closer to the Lord. It's not an overwhelming study yet it was deep enough that I feel like I really learned a lot from it.
This is a wonderful study and I highly recommend it. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
This book is a wonderful study resource to help us overcome shame. It features personal stories from the author, bible verses to look up, questions to answer, and a daily prayer. This is so much more than a simple devotional. Laura Dingman gets to the very core of shame. This book goes over definition, cause, and how to overcome. How great a thing to live unashamed?
If I could add one thing to the book it would be a note section at the end of each day. I like to write my own prayers as well as any notes (this is a very thought-provoking study).
I did like that it wasn't a difficult study filled with 100 daily questions you have to look up answers to. Yes, it has those important questions, but it's not an overwhelming amount. I find that the usual reason for not completing studies is lack of time. This one however, won't take an hour out of your day and it is more than worth the time to learn to live unashamed.
When I saw the title of this book I intrigued, when I read what it was about I wanted to read it, when I read it I was pleasantly surprised! I am found is a beautifully written Bible Study to encourage women not to hide in shame but be found and loved by God. We can't hide from God, he knows all, but we do it anyway. He wants us to be upfront with Him, choose to come and share the things that we want to conceal from Him and the rest of the world.
I think the only thing I wish is the word "hide" was used a lot when asking things like "How are you hiding from God?" I felt other words could've been used to describe what was being asked or would've helped better understand some of the questions in my study time. I looked up the definition for 'hide' and that helped and then the synonyms. Words like 'conceal', 'disguise', 'mask,' helped me to see how I was hiding from God and others.
I really enjoyed this Bible Study. It's encouraging, enlightening, and a pleasure to read and share with others. I liked that it didn't take me 2 hours to do each day, in fact, I liked it enough when I had time I did two in one day, but for the average person this is a great day-starter! For those who wanted to take more time could easily go back to and dig more.
I give this book a 4.5 out of 5!
