Over the past year I went through a Bible study book called True Woman 101. It was written by two of my favorite teachers, Mary Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss. It's a Bible study that is focused on looking in-depth at God's design for womanhood in His word. It's supposed to be an 8-week long study, but unfortunately grad school got in the way of the timing for me. But I have to say that after going through this book, I absolutely loved it! This book was so uplifting and encouraging and provided great, Biblical teaching on womanhood.
This Bible study is great because it moves a good pace. There are about four pages of the book assigned per day, which includes scripture, teaching, questions, and places to fill in your own answers to the questions. The book hits on many important areas related to womanhood such as, the purpose of manhood and womanhood, the distinction between the two and the importance of it, how Satan has twisted and marred manhood and womanhood, how this has affected our culture, and how to practically display Christ through our womanhood.
I think this book was so meaningful to me, because every day when I'm out in the world I hear such conflicting messages about what womanhood is meant to be. As believers, it is so often hard to distinguish God's truth from the values of our culture. I really loved this book and learned a lot about God's design for manhood and womanhood and a lot about God's view of gender. It really helped me sort through some of the lies that I have believed and bought into from things like psychology. One of the things the book brought to my attention was just how much my thinking about manhood and womanhood has been affected feminism and by the culture. It was crazy to see how (even in such little ways) Satan's lies have seeped into my own heart and mind and have affected how I view manhood and womanhood. This book really helps show that.
So, if you're looking for a good Bible study on womanhood, I would highly recommend this book. It is full of God's truth and admonishment from the Word. I think this book was great to do on my own and I think it would be even better to do with a group of women (of any age). This book is a great way to help us, as women, learn who God created us to be.
