Becoming a Woman of Faith, by Cynthia Heald
Becoming a Woman of Faith, written by Cythia Heald, is a devotional study for women of all ages and walks of life who desire for their faith to be challenged, strengthened, and encouraged. Basing the text and chapters primarily off of Romans 12, she walks the reader through many Scriptures, quotes from great Christians, and attributes of faith.
I liked the 11-week study format the author chose, in that each chapter begins with a brief lesson or message, and is followed by application as you delve into selected Scripture passages, questions for personal review and consideration, and a time of focused prayer. Although the topic and concept is a deep one to be sure, the study allows for anyone to participate, as it seems to me that the study parts of it could be completed in a rather short time, though one certainly wouldn’t want to rush through it as much insight could be gained by putting a fair amount of time towards the study of God’s word as she has prepared. As written, this study would be easily incorporated into one’s personal devotional time, or studied alongside others (which would also offer the added benefit of accountability to finish!).
This study is one of several written by the author, the others being: Becoming a Woman of Simplicity, Becoming a Woman of Excellence, Becoming a Woman of Freedom, Becoming a Woman of Prayer & Becoming a Woman of Purpose.
