Welcome to Day 5 of the After God’s Own Heart post series!
A Woman After God's Own Heart® by Elizabeth George
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a "must-read" for any and every woman. Elizabeth digs into Biblical truth and shares practical application for our every day lives. She is sweet, kind, and encouraging all the while gently prodding each woman to be a woman after the heart of God.
I enjoy Elizabeth's organized approach and kind, yet direct manner as she shares from the Word of God and from her own life. While I really appreciated and enjoyed the original release, I think that in this updated version she has mellowed a bit and it may be easier for more and more woman to read and enjoy. I like the easy reading and then the study guide portion that helps you think through what you just read - it's a great combination for aiding in spiritual growth.
I personally think this book can be used in just about any setting - individually, one-on-one, group Bible study, and even hand-in-hand with the teen version for a Mother/Daughter study.
A new cover and fresh updates enrich Elizabeth George’s bestselling A Woman After God’s Own Heart® (over 735,000 copies sold). This very popular selection for personal and group study is filled with rich advice, spiritual wisdom, and practical applications.

* her walk with the Lord
* her ministry
There is peace and purpose for the woman who prepares her heart and mind to embrace God’s plan every day. This new look will complement the other bestselling Elizabeth George titles loved by millions of women.

Biblical. Accurate. Basic. Practical. Challenging. Convicting. Uplifting.
