About the book:
Twenty minutes a day to discover the abundance of God’s riches
 In Live Abundantly, Bible teachers Lenya Heitzig and Penny Pierce Rose challenge you to dig deep into the book of Ephesians to find the spiritual treasure God has for you. Covering topics such as living in God’s will and receiving peace no matter the circumstances, the book of Ephesians reveals the magnitude of every Christian’s inheritance, a gift “exceedingly abundantly above” what you could ever ask for.
Unearth the greatest treasure of life in this rich study. 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.

My take on this Bible study:
"Live Abundantly" is a Bible study that focuses on the book of Ephesians. There are twelve lessons and each lesson is broken down into five days. There are five elements to each daily lesson which are:

1. Lift Up ~ which encourages us to lift up prayer to God.
2.Look At~ which encourages the  user to look up scriptures.
3.Learn about~ helps the user understand what the text means.
4.Live Out~ challenges the user to apply the lessons to their life.
5. Listen To~ are inspiring quotes from other believers.

I have really enjoyed using this Bible study that comes from the Fresh
 Life Bible Study Series, which is a series of Bible studies that were
 created by women for women. Even though I only used the "Live 
Abundantly" briefly I learned several things that I didn't know, such as Ephesians is an epistle from an apostle. Simply put, epistles are ancient letters between two or more parties. This is certainly a Bible study that I will reuse each time I read The Book of Ephesians.
Recommended to anyone who is looking to grow in God's word by studying the Bible.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided by B&B Media in exchange for an honest review.
