Becoming Women of Purpose May 3, 2000
Ruth Barton's study is an excellent resource for Christian women of all ages and stages. She guided me through a personal and scriptural discovery of God's unique purpose for my life using a pleasant variety of old and new testament teachings along with probing questions on my real life experiences, feelings, and beliefs. This study is similar in format to those by author/teacher Cynthia Heald. Unlike other studies of this type, Ms. Barton soaks in scripture passages to communicate her points; I never got the sense that we were skipping around the Bible. I particularly enjoyed the studies of Esther and Moses, developing a personal purpose statement, and discovering the value God sees in my life circumstances.
I did the study on my own, and found many mornings I couldn't wait to get to it! I completed it in less than a month, and plan to use the materials in a group setting this fall. The guide also has a strong Leader's Section in the back that undergirds every chapter with selective "deeper dive" support.
