In the Studio Sneak Peak Friday: All the women of the Bible

photo credit
A new very old book for me to read. And, I started reading this book somewhere in the middle. Then I read the preface. I just love the copy I'm reading, It's old & tattered with a many a frayed edges. Edith Deen's style of writing transcends time and space. Although, written in 1955 ... for the most part ... it reads as if it were just written yesterday.

This week I focused my study on Lydia for she was a business woman. And according to DEEN the first Christian Convert in Europe. Deen's describes Lydia as radiant.

We are studying Acts in our Bible fellowship group at church. So when we get to this chapter ... it should be most interesting.  

Acts 16:14 (KJV)


And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.


NOTE: This verse confirms that the Lord is in charge of opening hearts. Lydia's heart was opened & Lydia took action ... attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.


Find more about Lydia in Acts 16:15 ...

Deen describes Lydia as a Spiritual Leader!

  3. I have a book by Elizabeth George on Remarkable Women of the Bible. This looks like a great read too. I think sometimes women are discredited...but there are many wonderful women in Scripture...

    Thanks for sharing!

  9. I love books like this...I found a good series some years ago by Navigators publishers..."Her Name Is Woman" book 1 and book 2. It is a Bible Study of each woman mentioned in the Bible with exercises to apply her life to our own today...very powerful! Women have always held in equal position to men in God's heart, whether we are talking about the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit...when you look at how They personally address women in the Bible, an understanding of how our position has been perverted through the ages...

    Blessings!

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
