My Thoughts:

I wasn’t asked to review this book, but simply to inform my readers that it’s out there.  I couldn’t help myself though and decided to take a peak at my copy of Living Victoriously in Difficult Times.  I think it was a God-thing that I was intrigued by it. 

Kay Arthur uses an inductive approach and breaks the study down into chunks titled observe, discuss, and insight.  She encourages people to mark in their bibles a lot and make note of the frequency of words and phrases.  I love that she breaks some things down to the Greek.

Honestly, I began this study privately with my husband just before bedtime.  The studies were brief but deep enough to provoke my thinking and challenge my walk.

Only weeks after starting this study my home became (emotionaly) like the home on the cover.  Unexpected things have occurred in my marriage and personal life that are nothing short of difficult.  I am living and walking victoriously through this trial though thanks to this wonderful and encouraging study.

So there it is, not a true review . . .but an endorsement by someone who is blessed by this study.

You can pick up 40 Minute Bible Studies for a very low cost.  They would make an excellent small group study.  I highly recommend checking them out.  Go here to order.
