There are books that you like and recommend Then there are those books that you wonder how they even got published And then there are books like this one that stay with you and you rave to all your friends about it.Lysa has written a book that will cling to you for dayseven weekster you have read it, and then browsed the notes section because it was that good When the book arrived in my mailbox I flipped through the pages in search of the lists telling me what t do and what not to do in my journ [...]


    2. Forever That was the last chapter of Becoming More than a Good Bible Study Girl Chapter 18 Forever.Sadly, the book cannot last forever and instead, it ended with a beautiful chapter talking about forever with our Heavenly Father Reading and working through Becoming More than a Good Bible Study Girl was an amazing journey, because it is and wasn t about how to effectively bible study.Thankfully to our Heavenly Father, is that our relationship with our Heavenly Father is foreverThere are plenty o [...]


    3. Plain and simply, this book is changing my life I apologize if that sounds melodramatic but God is working in my heart and mind through what I ve read in this book I am reading this as part of a small group study and still have a couple of days before I meet with my Bible Study Girls to discuss it but I had to capture my thoughts right now Not only does Lysa TerKeurst write as if she is sitting across a table having coffee with you, she has an uncanny ability to make statements that drive straig [...]


    4. Absolutely loved this book and am going to read it again and take notes She writes so easily, makes you laugh, makes you think, makes you WANT to think about what it means to be than a good Bible study girl She s real and it comes through in her writings and stories about herself Would recommend this book to anyone who wants a deeper, better, real relationship with God She gives very practical things you can do to draw closer to Him.


    5. This is the first of Lysa s books I have read Her work is easy to read and very relatable to every day life I appreciated her frankness and honesty in sharing her personal experiences helping me to see her human struggles with her spiritual growth This will definitely be a book which I will return to in the future to re read all or portions of.


    6. I loved this book I couldn t put it down once I started Lysa has a wonderful way of sharing her life story and showing others how to bring out the good in themselves I would highly recommend it to ladies of all ages I would love to do the actual Bible study that goes along with it as well.


    7. This book was AWESOME I loved it so much and recommend it to everyone All of her quirky stories like the Great Brownie Failure of 2008 were things I HAVE done I could easily relate to everything and found the book full of funny stories and a few sad ones too, but funny ones that I could easily relate to and learn from I was the Pineapple girl too, lol This is a GREAT book


    8. We can be good Bible study girls and still not be living out the truths we are studying Why Because it s easy to study but often difficult to apply the hard truths to our life that God serves up in the Scriptures In Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl, Lysa Terkeurst offers a solution to the endless studying without application It won t be easy and will involve looking deep inside yourself for the reasons we act the way we do and the desire to turn away from our flesh If you are yearning [...]


    9. From the Introduction So what is the message I m delivering in this book I want to help women not only know God s truth but also feel equipped to live it out in their everyday lives For too many years I was full of Bible knowledge with no idea how to let the truths I knew impact my daily life I would go to Bible study, leave all inspired, and then come home and have a complete meltdown over spilling bleach on my favorite shirt Or a kid s bad attitude Or finding out a friend betrayed me Or gainin [...]


    10. I have read so many Lysa s books God plays this book in my path at this exact moment in my life for a reason I could love to tell you that this is my favorite book by Lysa, it truly may be The personal stories and scripture coinciding have been an encouragement Every chapter I have caught myself thinking, Yes, a totally similar thing happened to me If I had read this book when it was first published, by heart would not have resonated with the tales wisdom Lysa imparts I m great full it crossed m [...]


    11. This is one of the BEST books on Christian living I have ever read I would use this with new Christians and mature alike Lysa has a wonderful and funny writing style that draws you in, engages you, and helps you apply God s Word to your own life.


    12. What a fantastic book Loved it, particularly the last 3 chapters and it was a great bible study to do in a small group


    13. I was able to relate to Lysa as she explained each point I really enjoyed this book I followed along on an ebook while listening to her read it on audiobook.


    14. Great readThis book was a great encouragement and I would read it again I really liked the audio as well since Lysa is the reader.


    15. When I first saw this book, I thought it was going to be about getting from one s Bible study Though Lysa does discuss that in a couple of chapters, the overall purpose of the book is to move Bible study from our to do list and just acquiring knowledge, to living out what God is teaching us, to enjoy a deeper connection with God.Lysa says in the first chapter I want my life with Jesus to be fulfilling I want my beliefs to work no matter what life throws at me I want to be so certain of God s pr [...]


    16. I would give this five stars I have loved both of Lysa s books, but this one really struck home for me As a result of reading this book, I have committed to getting up ten minutes early each day to read my Bible and pray I may eventually increase that time, but for now I want to get into a good habit Each day for the last week, I have gotten up and enjoyed the quiet of my house I write down the chapter I read plus one verse that really stuck out to me I write down who and what I prayed for I am [...]


    17. I preferred the Unglued book and study that Lysa Terkeurst wrote in that it was entertaining and the stories funnier But important issues are not always entertaining and this women s Bible study had good concepts in it, too I suppose that the floating mattress was funny I think this book would be particularly appropriate for new Christians wondering how to apply what they read to their lives Well, that can be challenging for all of us, at times I told my kids her story about how she became a Ch [...]

    19. This was really great to read THere are some simple ideas I would definitely recommend it to anyone hoping to live life than just inside certain rules of their every day life She shares some of her growing up and recent experiences of how God has changed her view on aspects of her life Big theme in it, I feel like, is don t put limitations put God in a box Pray crazy prayers Unplug every so often from the electronics Take your time to be present with God Be intentional and set the time, like yo [...]


    20. A wonderful book with a theme that encourages Christian women to go beyond the daily Christian to do list ie attend church, study the Bible, etc and develop a personal relationship with God from the inside out The author, Lysa TerKeurst, shares her experiences about her own relationship with God in such a way that is heartfelt and brutally honest, at times Lysa is a great storyteller, and her personal anecdotes about her own experiences with God are often amusing and lighthearted The book is div [...]


    21. Lysa TerKeurst has written a timely message to Christians to help them grow in their daily walk In an engaging, heart felt, transparent style she encourages a deeper walk with Jesus and God She supports her message with scripture passages that resonate and challenge the believer to step to a higher level of commitment Not just to read and study, not just to be a Sunday Christian but to do and act And in acting and trusting, to be prepared for a closer, intimate walk with God Her examples of her [...]


    22. First, I have to explain why it took me so long to read this book We used it in by Bible study class, but about halfway through, we had to put it aside because our pastor was coming to teach from a different book I really wanted to finish it, but decided to wait for the class Finally, we re finishing it this week I really liked this book She s so down to earth, funny, and practical with her lessons She makes numerous points that can really be taken to heart The study guide that goes with the boo [...]


    23. I am not sure I can do this book justice with my review but I will try Well, let me start by saying that I felt doors opening in my heart and mind as I read Lysa s words I found myself turning and to the Bible and gaining a better understanding of verses that I once found confusing.The results of reading this book are many and they are all good I feel like I ve been given a gift a huge spiritual gift that makes me long for a intense relationship with God This book has uplifted my spirits and [...]


    24. Considering I d really rather read fiction, I was pleasantly surprised by this book I did a ladies bible study with my church this spring and this was the book that was chosen Each chapter is easy to read and laid out in a way that is straight forward Lysa presents bible revelation in a way that is easy to understand and not so spiritual it goes over your head It doesn t matter if you are a new believer or been walking with the Lord years, this book has something for all if us I plan on buying t [...]


    25. Read this book in conjunction with her video series and the accompanying workbook, with a small group of women gathered weekly TerKeurst offers examples of her walk of faith through day to day challenges in a down to earth, easy to relate to style I found her suggestions refreshing and applicable Certainly can be read without the workbook but I thought the workbook made me think a little and a little harder about what I learned in the book The video series was cute but not essential It did offe [...]


    26. Lisa s book is a honest heart to heart talk, like sitting with a good friend This book has simple and profound truths through it all.She i very transparent about her own life and shortcomings and gives clear and real answers that worked for her and will for you too.I recommend this book for anyone who struggles in daily life as a Christian Certain chapters really stand out and shine When I don t feel like i measure upShe likes me, she likes me notAnd the bet I think I want what she hasVery good [...]


    27. Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl is great for new Christians or those who do not have a deep relationship with Christ The book hits on things that Lysa has went through herself Many of the stories from her life are funny however, I prefer books with a little meat So if you are looking for spiritual milk this is a great book, but if you are looking for real food, you may want to look for a different Bible study.

    29. So inspiring Lysa encourages me to not settle for good enough, but to seek after a relationship with God with all my heart It is rather scary, but so much fulfilling than religion Lysa s testimony is a blessing to those of us who still feel inadequate to perceived expectation Don t just read the Bible, study it for spiritual sustenance O taste and see


    30. I m not sure I would have gotten tons out of this book on my own, but I read it with a group of women and watched the companion DVDs, and the author does touch on universal struggles for all women The discussions prompted by the book were helpful, and I did find the author s voice to be genuine and engaging.
