Live Reflectively: A Fresh Life Bible Study Series Review
Twenty minutes a day to a deeper understanding of God's presence in your life
He was saved from death on the Nile and raised as an Egyptian prince. He met his wife at a Midianite well, witnessed the birth of a nation as the Red Sea parted, and watched water gush from a rock with one touch of his rod. He died overlooking the Jordan River. In fact, Moses's entire life can be viewed through the water that redirected him.
In this engaging study, Bible teacher Lenya Heitzig encourages you to consider the "watershed" moments in your own spiritual journey. Each day's lesson is structured in five parts: Lift up (prayer), Look at (God's Word) , Learn about (new insights), Live out (application), Listen to (quotes from other believers)
The Fresh Life series was created by women, for women-women who crave a profound experience of God's Word without an overwhelming commitment of time. With each lesson, you will come to a deeper understanding of the truths of the Bible and develop a deeper intimacy with God.

I don't know about you, but I often find it much more enjoyable and impacting to study the principles and lives found in the New Testament over those in the Old Testament. I do not know exactly why, but one reason I know is that often I find the New Testament much more relavent. That is until I recently reviewed a study on the life of Moses, in Live Reflectively: Lessons from the Watershed Moments of Moses.
The person and life lessons in Moses are amazing, and there are so many. I absolutely have loved how Lenya Heitzig has brought his life to us in a relevant and easy to comprehend and use Bible Study. Each lesson allows us to see Moses as God did, as a tool to bring others to God. His grace is seen through each step of Moses' life, and can be in ours too, if we let Him. I have only gone through the first two lessons of Live Reflectively, but have found it to be the perfect Bible Study to carry me into 2012, and I cannot wait to see how God is going to use my life, as He did Moses, in this new year.
If you are looking for a great Bible Study idea for your Winter Small Group/Bible Study Series, I cannot recommend the Fresh Life Bible Series enough. It is perfect for young adult and up, and a very easy one to use and implement, with only a Bible as your supplement (and a study book for each participant of course).
I give this Bible Study a huge thumbs up!
