Reviews - What do customers think about Becoming A Vessel God Can Use (Repack)?
A must for every woman who wants to follow after God Mar 29, 2006
This has been an awesome book to use in our new ladies bible study. This is good for any age woman and it hasn't mattered how long one has been a christian.
I would suggest it for anyone.
Insightful, Challenging, Well Organized Mar 21, 2006
When the daily grind is getting to me and the husband and kids seem to be taking up more and more of my time, I often lose site of the goal of furthering my spiritual life. There is nothing like a woman's Bible Study group to get me back on track.
I just finished this study and I highly recommend it. It can be done as an individual study but I think the group study is more beneficial.
The book is very well organized. There are five requirements to becoming usable.
Accept the way God made you.
Be Emptied of self to make room for God.
Allow God to Cleanse you even if the process is painful.
Be Filled and constantly refilled with the Living Water of the Holy Spirit.
Pour Out your life in ministry as God directs.
These requirements are explored in 10 Weeks. Each week is broken down into five daily studies, each taking from 15 to 20 minutes to complete. This structure made it easy to stay focused on the goal, and faithfully finish the entire 10 weeks.
At the back of the book are 10 cards with memory verses. This was very helpful because everyone was memorizing the same verse each week. This gave us incentive to memorize but no one was embarrassed if they couldn't remember the verse.
There are questions at the end of each daily study to stimulate thinking and discussion.
Also included are forms for prayer requests and a prayer log.
A Leaders guide is located at the back of the book and makes it easier for the group leader to guide discussions.
It was a tough 10 week journey. Each day's study involved some personal and probing questions. They forced me to face problems that I had tucked away in a corner of my mind - labeled unimportant. Each day's study gave me a lot to think about throughout the day. Ms. Partow's friendly writing style made this 10 weeks a journey of love because it was clear that she had already been there and dealt with similar struggles. She showed the insight that comes from experience.
A blessed and enjoyable journey. . . . . Aug 31, 2001
The women of my church are using Donna's book for a retreat during the fall. As they prepare, the 5 presenters are completing the 10-week journey. Each woman will address one of the Five Requirements for Becoming A Vessel God Can Use. As the coordinator of the retreat, I am also completing this journey. We are being blessed tremendously and it is an enjoyable journey. I complete several lessons each day. I like it because it is concise yet so challenging that the time required to complete is easily spent. I thank God for using Donna as a vessel of ministry to Christian women.

LOOKING HELP; I SAW THAT GOD FULL FILLS OUR NEEDS AND TO TRUST HIM TO TAKE CARE OF HIS WONDERFUL BLESSING THAT HE HAS PLANDED FOR USE.
Yes, You too can be a vessel God can use Feb 4, 2001
Excellent! Excellent! I love this book. It is perfect for individual bible study. It takes just a few minutes to do the reading but it always takes on a whole new outlook on life afterwards. I can't wait to start another of her books.
