About the book:
Twenty minutes a day to a deepter 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.

My take on this Bible Study:
For my New Year's resolution I decided to read the Bible from cover to cover and this Bible Study dealing with Moses has been a wonderful assetto the beginning chapters of the Bible.

There are many things that I really enjoy about the appearance of the book. First of all it is a bit bigger than most Bible study books that I use, and the cover of the book is very eye appealing. I also find the way that each lesson is presented is very easy to use. There are ten lessons in the book and each lesson is broken down into five days. Each day has five different elements. There is Lift Up where the user is encouraged to lift  up prayer to God. Look At encourages the user to look up scripture using questions presented in the study. Learn About is  in the side margin and is specific questions to help you learn what the text means. Live out are exercises that will help the user figure out how the lessons can be applied to their own lives. Finally Listen to is inspiring quotes from other believers. For me this Bible study has been a great companion to my Bible reading. I find that it takes less than twenty minutes a day to complete each lesson, and the deeper meaning I find in what I am reading makes it well worth the time.

This is a book that is great for individuals studying on their own, but would also be wonderful in a small group setting. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to further their understanding of God's word.
