Week Recommendations #24

Online Bible Study: Esther
Love God Greatly is leading another 8-week in-depth study, starting Monday, September 1. It's not too late to join! You can grab some friends and form a small group, or you can ask to join an existing group by clicking here. If you've never done online Bible study before, consider it!


Did you enjoy this week's recommendations? You're invited to check back each weekend to see more of the good stuff out there brought here. I do my best to keep it relevant to women in cross-cultural situations too. If you think you might forget to stop by, you can subscribe by email (in the sidebar), or follow on FacebookGoogle+Pinterest or Twitter.
