Don’t just learn truth – live truth.
Have you ever walked around with a big smile on your face, pretending to be happy while inside, you felt broken? Are you ever overcome by waves of sadness or fear? Are there days when you look around and just feel overwhelmed by everything before you? Have life’s circumstances left you angry… discontent… and unsure of how to move past these emotions?
You’re not alone. There are places in each of our lives where we feel stuck. That’s why Jennie Allen designed this fresh, relevant bible study. She wants to help women connect with one another as they move through the stuck places in their lives. She also wants women to deepen their relationship with the God who sets them free.
Stuck is a multi-faceted, eight-week women’s bible study that you can also adapt for personal use. The Stuck DVD-Based Study contains four items:
- A Stuck See DVD where Jennie introduces each week’s topic in a short video.
- A Stuck Lead Guide that helps build effective group leaders.
- A Stuck Study Guide that contains the participant’s study materials.
- A set of Stuck Ask Cards which serve as conversation guides and journaling prompts.
I liked this study for several reasons. First, I enjoyed the videos. They were short, relevant, and beautifully produced. Jennie – the author and featured narrator in the videos – comes across as a caring, compassionate guide who truly sets the tone for the study. Here’s a sample to give you a feel for what the videos are like:
I also liked the conversation cards. They serve as a unique ice-breaker in groups and are highly adaptable for personal use.
Most importantly, I liked the study itself. It encourages women to connect with one another and to talk honestly and transparently about issues that we all struggle with but often sweep under the rug. It does so in unique and creative ways. It incorporates creative activities such as journaling that are often excluded from traditional studies. And, it does these things while keeping the focus on God and Scripture.
If you’re looking for a bible study that can truly impact your life, I highly recommend Stuck.
