Recommendation: The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer

If you don't have a Lisa Adkison in your life, get one. Lisa is one of my mentors and supporter from our supporting church in Little Rock, Arkansas and one way that she blesses us is by sending the girls on our team Bible studies to do. The first one she sent us was this one, The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer

We were able to complete this Bible study with Jaclyn, Briana, and Sarah and it was such a blessing to each one of us in our own lives but also such a special time that we had each week as just the girls to get together, share our lives with each other, and focus on God.

Priscilla writes this geared toward women but there were many times when I would share with Jeremy what it said. It is a 6-week Bible study workbook, with 5 lessons to complete each week. There is also an accompanying DVD with 7 sessions on it, one to watch before each week and then a final one to end with.

In this study, she focuses on the Ephesians 6:10-19 passage about the armor of God but weaves prayer throughout it all. This Bible study was written to help you develop a personalized plan and strategy for putting on the armor and praying for God's strength and power to work through you. It helps you name the struggles in your life and then directs focus to the real enemy, Satan. As the daily lessons bring about specific areas in your life that you need to work on they also bring up real, practical ways to begin addressing these areas today. 

This Bible study would be a blessing to you if you worked through it on your own, but even more so if you can find a group of women to complete it with you.
