Some of us can pick up book like 5 Habits, read it, and glean everything possible from it. Others of us, need to dig a bit deeper. We need to flesh out the ideas and concepts on paper. We need to work through it, taking our time to digest the content and determine how to best use it to affect our lives. And, there are occasions where we need to even hear the words coming from the author, peppered in with their personal accounts and feelings to make it more real.
If you click on the books above, you’ll be taken to the Lifeway.com page that lists not only the book for sale, but the black Study Workbook and even downloadable video links for individuals and groups.
The Pro’s of “A Woman Who Doesn’t Quit” study workbook:
- The study is 6 weeks long, which makes this a perfect length for a summer study. It can be a lot harder to gather your small group during the summer vacation months, and I generally find a 6 week study is the perfect solution.
- The structure of the study is easy to follow along with, if you choose to facilitate the study for a group of friends (or if you decided to tackle this one solo).
- The study workbook can be used independently of the original book, and videos!
The Con’s of “A Woman Who Doesn’t Quit” study workbook:
- Even though the study is a 6 week session, there is daily homework. I’ve often found this tends to be the area that hangs up women the most, in a small group setting. This is particularly difficult for moms with young children or working women.
SOLUTION: Take your time working through it, don’t rush to be done in six weeks.
- There are some areas of the book that provide ample writing space, but others I fine to be lacking.
SOLUTION: Consider a small notebook, or use the larger post it notes for added space.
Other than that, it is very solid study that explores the book of Ruth and what we can learn from her on how to be a woman who doesn’t quit. The study walks us through scripture, explores our own past habits, and then encourages us to build new ones.
