About the Book

The book of James has been called at times "The Proverbs of the New Testament" because of its practical nature in how to "do life" with God. Do you ever struggle with things like trials and temptations, faith, favoritism, your tongue, pride, quarrels, slander, prayer and how to be patient in suffering? Then you've come to the right place! James confronts all these and more head on and in this power-packed letter to believers.

Do you get tired and discouraged feeling that you will never live up to God's standards? Do you want to know God in a deeper more intimate way? Then this study is for you. Your perspective on God will be challenged along with what a relationship with God truly looks like focusing on "being" rather than "doing."

Acts 17:28 says, "In Him we live and move and have our being." What does that really look like in our everyday lives? Are you ready to "go deeper" with God? Well, then, let's get started!

About the Author

1. Is anyone ever "qualified" to write something on behalf of God? I wrote this bible study because after walking with God for the past 35 years, I have come to know and recognize His voice and His Spirit moving within me. Philippians 2:13 sums it up: "for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose." I wrote this at His leading and for His good purpose - whatever that may look like.

2. I have a passion for God's word; I live, breathe and believe God's word to the fullest. I want other's to know God to the fullest of their ability and be challenged to "stretch" to another level in their Christian walk.

3. I live in Spokane Valley, Washington and am the Women's Ministry leader at Valley Real Life, a church of appx. 1200 people. I have been married almost 36 years and have three married daughters and four grandchildren with a fifth on it's way. I teach bible study and have spoken at women's retreats as well.
