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! 


  1. A very nice post.
    There is something wonderful& fascinating about old books. Not just the reading content,but the smell of it,and thoughts of who and how many people over the years have read this book.
    Hugs, Amy

  2. might you have a favorite woman in the bible?

  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!

  4. Bible stories of the women , that is really awesome , there should be more about them as an example in the church studies. Thanks for sharing
    Sonya : )

  5. That is a great book... that no matter when it was written, it reads like it was written yesterday! :)

  6. Thanks for sharing women of the bible. Isn't that a wonderful find!

  7. Dearest sweet sonya, it's wonderful to be back on the swing of things on blogland! This book is soo interesting! Thanks so much for sharing. Have a lovely merry happy weekend and love to you!

  8. I haven't read it but now I'd like to, Sonya :) And I do love old books, the musty smell and fragile pages. Treasure!

  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...


  10. so nice to remember we have a LINEAGE of Christian business women!

I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
