Women of the Bible: 12 Encouraging Stories Every Christian Woman Should Read

I noticed recently how I had gotten out of the habit of reading my Bible everyday. It really affects me when I don’t regularly spend time with the Lord, and I could feel Him calling me back. But to be honest, I had gotten a little bored with my quiet time!

I hate to say that, but sometimes it happens. So I knew I needed to spark some interest in my quiet time once again!

That’s why I decided to put together a Bible study that sounded really interesting and encouraging to me: Woman of the Bible!

There are so many amazing stories in the Word about God using women for His glory and to carry out His plan. It’s so encouraging for me to read about these awesome ladies, and gives me confidence that God can use me for His good too!

Below I’ve outlined 13 encouraging stories that every Christian woman should read. I hope this Bible study idea will interest you like it does me, and give you encouragement as you follow along!

How to Be a Proverbs 31 Woman

Have you ever struggled with the idea of being the perfect, Proverbs 31 woman?

In Proverbs 31:10-31, a detailed description is given about a “wife of noble character.” In these scriptures, many traits are listed that a Godly wife should possess, giving all Christian women a standard of character.

It can be easy to look at this list and feel inequivalent to the woman described in the passage of scripture, as well as a little overwhelmed by needing to live up to such a seemingly perfect person.

However, I don’t think God gave us these guidelines to make us feel bad about ourselves or discouraged. It’s quite the opposite! He gave us these guidelines to encourage us to be our best and show what our purpose as wives, mothers, sister, and friends can be in this world. And most importantly, give us a glimpse of who He can help us become!

Even if you aren’t married, all Christian women can learn something from the Proverbs 31 woman and apply her honorable traits to their lives, even in this modern day and time.

How I Changed My Bible Study from Lackluster to Life Giving: Make Reading the Bible Fun!

When I was younger, I never made much time to study the Bible. In all honesty, it didn't much appeal to me. 

I didn't really understand the words and I had no idea how to really make sense of them. Unfortunately, I had a lot more fun things I wanted to be doing! 

Now that I'm at a deeper part in my walk with God, I realize that my way of thinking back then had a lot to do with immaturity in my relationship with the Lord. However, one thing still sticks out to me about my old mind frame. 

The lack of fun!

You may have experienced this same type of slump in your walk with the Lord, too! Especially if you don't really like reading or studying. Not to mention how the whole 66 books and 1000 pages thing can be a real scary mountain to climb, am I right?!
