Just wondering what book you used that really stuck with you, and that you learned the most from. I have gone through quite a few different bible studies, but my favorite by far was "the fruit of the spirit" by Beth Moore. It was quite intense, it had homework 5 days a week, but I learned so much.


Everyone told me that the purpose driven life would be so life changing, but I guess I missed something. I read it a few years ago, and I can't say I really remember anything about it.

I LOVE Beth Moore!!! I do a study of hers ever Spring and Fall. We are starting one on Sept. 7th. Her Daniel one.... I have done SO many... I can't pick out just one. I did a study on Revelation that I LOVED! I want to do it again, in fact. It was one that my friend put together.

I am part of an accountability group that meets on Mondays. Our book is pretty good... gets right down to your heart. Not really sure of the title though...

I'm also starting the Raggamuffin Gospel (sp?) with another group on Thursdays. I haven't actually started it yet... I hope it's good. Anyone read it?

I've never done Beth Moore's "Fruit of the spirit". What is is on? (a particular book or subject?)

For a quick devotional, I LOVED Mary DeMuth's "Ordinary Mom, Extraordinary God" it is a must read!

For a Bible study, the two I liked best are "Christian Living in the Home" by Jay Adams and "How Do I Love those Prickly People?" by Juanita Purcell. I am doing Purcell's this fall in my Sunday school that I will teach.

Beth Moore's fruit of the spirit is exactly that, it explores each of the fruit of the spirit. It was so interesting, because I have heard many things said about it before and yet she gave me so many new perspectives. I am going to jot down some of the books mentioned, sometimes when I go to the bookstore there are so many to choose from, and I don't want to spend my money if it's not worth it.

Now I want to get this Beth Moore book. I have never heard of her. Does she have a website?

And...random...anyone read Joyce Meyer? Is she good?

I LOVE Joyce Myer's Bible Studies. Her book The Battlefield of the Mind is excellent. She also has a really good book about eating healthy and weight loss and it's all scripture based. I can't remember the name but it's really good. She is on TV--at my house we watch her on Daystar.

I did one Beth Moore Bible Studies and I enjoyed it but I found that they did require a TON of homework. I think it was called Believing God.

Beth Moore's study does require a big commitment, no doubt about it. I really had to decide to make it a priority, but the more you put in the more you get out of it. Out of the 50 days of homework I found 2 or 3 to be kind of a drag, the rest were really good.

I've never read anything from Joyce Meyer, but I do know that she has a new book coming out called the confident woman.
