Buyer's Guide

The Bible is filled with “anonymous” women who made a significant impact in God’s story. Anonymous: Discovering the Somebody You Are to God helps women discover their uniqueness and significance to Christ by exploring some of the “anonymous” women of the Bible. Though these women in the Bible are not named, they all were known and loved by God. Each week of Wood’s six-session study begins with an overview of the anonymous woman’s story, including background material with relevance to the cultural lifestyles and environment of the day. The study’s daily lessons explore her story and the ways that all women can relate to her. Contemporary “anonymous” stories and quotes from everyday women are sprinkled throughout, reinforcing the personal relevance of this study. A Leader Kit is also available, which includes the Participant Book, Leader Guide, DVD and Preview Book. Orders: abingdonpress.com.

The Grace of Yes by Lisa M. Hendey

Catholicmom.com blogger and best-selling author Hendey is fueled by a lifelong passion for her faith. In The Grace of Yes: Eight Virtues for Generous Living, she guides readers through pivotal moments of her journey and the eight virtues that have helped her learn how to say yes to God. She explores the eight spiritual virtues that she believes are foundational to the Christian life, helping readers learn about belief, creativity, integrity, humility, vulnerability, saying no and starting over. She shows how these virtues lead to generous living and the ability to joyously say yes to God. Hendey reflects candidly on her own real-life struggles: the identity adjustment of leaving a blossoming career to become a stay-at-home mom; the temptation of divahood as her online celebrity grew; the freedom and opportunities of empty-nest status versus the middle-aged body’s pull to slow down; her encounters with a spiritual community during treatment for cancer; and the contrast between the lingering grief she confronted at a Rwandan genocide memorial and the willingness of survivors there to forgive. Hendey also provides questions for personal reflection and a prayer to close the exploration of each virtue. Orders: avemariapress.com.
