Free Bible Studies:

In her book?Grumble Hallelujah: Learning to Love Your Life Even When It Lets You Down, Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneira contends that Christians must learn that not only is God okay with Christians expressing their hurt and disappointment, but that God can actually be honored by it, that lamenting can be a form of worship and praise. Can this be true? Can Christians really praise God and complain at the same time? This study looks at what the Scriptures have to say about lamenting?about grumbling hallelujahs?when life falls short of our expectations, and how our lives can change through lament.

When You Feel Like Mama’s Got a Fake I.D. from?

Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneira?s new book,?Mama?s Got a Fake I.D.makes the case that while motherhood does change women in many ways, it doesn?t leave moms as less than the complete women God intended them to be, but instead makes them more. She believes that this truth, however, is not often reflected in churches, where people seem more comfortable seeing motherhood as a woman?s primary God-honoring role. So who?s right here? Does the Bible really support her premise? Does God really want more for moms? This study walks readers through the Scripture behind Rivadeneira?s arguments.
