Family. Home. Work. Church. It’s good, but is it as good as it gets? Find more at the intersection of God’s Word and our obedience to it.
For many women, life can be full with family needs, home duties, work obligations, and church service. Does it feel like you’re doing everything you should be doing, yet something’s still missing? Does it feel like there should be more?
In Yes, No, & Maybe, Proverbs 31 speaker and author Wendy Pope shares how women can find the God of “immeasurably more” at the intersection of the Bible and their obedience to it. Through reading this book, women will
• Hear truths from God about what’s missing in their lives, even if they are tough messages
• Learn how to trust God to reveal what’s missing in their lives
• Develop the discipline to be close to God and hear His guidance
As a Bible study teacher, Wendy will walk women through her own journey and the power that she found through truly studying the Bible. She teaches readers how to say “yes” to God and “no” to self and to embrace the freedom of “maybe” that comes as a result of honing and filtering the commitments and priorities of life. This book is for any woman interested in
• Finding a meaningful way to study the Bible
• Letting the Holy Spirit work in their lives
• Learning to polish parts of themselves to better reflect God
Pope (Trusting God for a Better Tomorrow), a writer for Proverbs 31 ministries, lays out her course for a joy-filled life in this realistic, relatable book. Looking to address problems in her marriage, Pope opened up to her husband about her unhappiness with his long working hours, and he responded with something that changed her life: "You don't make our house a place I want to come home to." After that dismal assessment, Pope decided she needed to revisit her spiritual disciplines to understand how her family life had reached such a state of disarray. She lists three steps that helped her overcome those difficulties: cultivating trust, inviting revelation, and welcoming freedom. Through anecdotes and passages from scripture, Pope illustrates how happily abandoning oneself to God can help with overcoming disappointments and hardships. In the most memorable chapter, Pope outlines the struggles the apostle Paul confronted as he spread the gospel of Christ, explaining that his example of perseverance is one all Christians should follow. Pope concludes each chapter with an "Ask and Imagine" section for further study. Christian readers looking for spiritual fortitude in their personal lives will appreciate Pope's inspirational, practical text.
