An Unexplainable Life by Erica Wiggenhorn {A Bible Study for Women} with #Giveaway

I ashamedly admit that it’s been awhile since I did an indepth Bible study.  Most days I read a few verses, say a quick prayer and go on.  That’s not how it used to be. When my two older kiddos (now 17 and 19) were young children, I would wake up before them, sit on the couch or on the front porch, and read my Bible and work my way through a Bible study.  I enjoyed that time. I even craved that time if I missed a morning.  Somehow I lost that.

Maybe it’s because I got too busy with life. Maybe it’s because I had a third child who brought along with him a fatiguing pregnancy and demanding needs as a toddler.  He is starting to learn some independence so I see myself finding a few spare moments to spend in an in-depth Bible study.

I recently received two in-depth Bible Studies (in exchange for my honest review of any portion of the studies).  While I haven’t had time to work my way through both studies, I did work through a portion of each.  It was so refreshing spending all that time in God’s Word {again}, hearing Him speak to me.

I’m not a fan of Bible studies that push their own commentary on you. Thankfully these studies weren’t like that. Both studies provided Scripture for you to read, questions for you to answer using God’s Word as your reference and plenty of prayer prompts.

I am looking forward to finishing both studies. Between the two of them, I will be deep in God’s Word for at least 16 weeks.  I do hope they come out with some more of these bible studies for women. In another 3-4 months I will be ready for another one!

You can read more about the first Bible study below and the second Bible study here.  There is also a giveaway for the two Bible studies further below.

About the Book

Do you ever feel like you’re living a “small” life? Do you look around and wonder if this is all there is? The truth is, Christ’s mission is much bigger than ourselves and many of us are missing out on the full life He offers. What would our lives look like if we lived in the power of God, fueled by the Holy Spirit? How can we live in a way that the world is left scratching their heads?

“Cultural influences, circumstances, and our own misconceptions have stifled the life of God in us, resulting in imprecise views of Christ’s mission for our lives both individually and in the Christian church collectively,” says Erica Wiggenhorn, author of the new Bible study, An Unexplainable Life (Moody Publishers, July 2016). “We have become men and women of doubt and fear. We are consumed by our circumstances.”

In this debut title in Moody Publishers’ new Bible study line for women, Wiggenhorn, a Bible teacher, speaker, and founder of EveryLife Ministries in Phoenix, takes women on a 50-day journey through Acts 1-12, helping them to understand biblical truths about the Holy Spirit, Pentecost, the early church, and the mission of the disciples.

Designed for small groups, churches, as well as individual study, An Unexplainable Life includes ten weeks of lessons, five per week, and features a daily Scripture passage (which women are encouraged to read aloud), commentary from Wiggenhorn, and in-depth, interactive questions. While many Bible studies on the book of Acts exist, Wiggenhorn’s hope is that this study will reignite a movement of the power of the Holy Spirit in each woman individually and in their churches collectively.

“The Holy Spirit was sent to authenticate Christ’s claims of deity,” says Wiggenhorn. “The Spirit powerfully manifests Himself in order for Christ’s prayers that the church will demonstrate an unexplainable love for Him and for one another are fulfilled. Yet we can lose our dependence on the Holy Spirit and attempt to manufacture our own power. But the Holy Spirit is our Counselor who guides us into all truth. He is the One who enables us to understand the Scriptures. He is the One who empowers us to live out the mission. He is able to work in and through us so the world may know the power of Christ.”

Throughout the study, Wiggenhorn guides women as they learn about unexplainable change, courage, mission, vision, expansion, unity, and discipleship as well as God and the journey we take toward an unexplainable life. She encourages women to pray boldly, build their knowledge of Scripture, serve, tell the truth, share their faith, and resolve to obey God’s leading, no matter what.

“Prayer is where we talk it through. The Word is where our spiritual warnings are given,” says Wiggenhorn. “Keeping in step with the Spirit requires diligence and perseverance, but when you have it down, your life becomes a beautiful display accompanied by a skillful melody—it becomes unexplainably harmonious!”

    I feel like I have no time in the stage of my life w three young boys to do a bible study. Actually I felt more closer to God once I started my blog because I was studying more of Gods word to write my blog posts. I am praying more to dedicate more time with the Lord in my own personal study- I will look into this study. Thanks

    That sounds like a great study. I completely agree with what she said in regards to how many of us try to use our own power instead of leaning into the Holy Spirit guidance.

    These look so good. I’m with you on studies that push their own commentary. I do like to do studies–it helps with my focus.
