Deacon's Wives by Diana Davis:
In describing the qualities of a church deacon, the Bible also emphasizes the traits of his companion: “Wives, too, must be worthy of respect, not slanderers, self-controlled, faithful in everything” (1 Timothy 3:11). Yet for all the traditional deacon handbooks, less prevalent are those for a deacon’s wife.
This warmhearted, conversational new book from “Fresh Ideas” syndicated columnist Diana Davis shares stories and insights for deacon wives whether just inaugurated or long experienced. The reader will enjoy tips on how to best encourage her husband’s work, the ministry of the pastor and his wife, and other church staff and members. There are also helpful home and family suggestions, self-evaluation forms and checklists, and even a detailed teaching plan to share this wealth of material with other women in the church.
Called to be a Keeper by Lori Merrill:
The Called to be a Keeper Bible study is for all women no matter what age or stage of life. This study seeks to encourage women to understand the value of their role in light of God’s Word, to live out her priorities according to Scripture, and to help them walk in contentment and satisfaction while carrying out their calling as found in Titus 2 and Proverbs 31. It is unique because it encourages women to find creative ways to improve the management of their homes through life application skills. Some of the skills include: household management, hospitality, cooking shortcuts, and reflecting Christ in your home.
Bridges on the Journey:
Bridges on the Journey will help you and your discipleship group learn the basics of the Christian life—Bible study, living in community, sharing your faith, memorizing Scripture—that will keep you going for a lifetime of relationship with Jesus. Through fundamental spiritual disciplines, you’ll get started on the right path to begin a discipling process in your life and the lives of other women.
Written by several Navigator authors especially for women, this Bible study will help you form habits and attitudes that will result in a deeper relationship with God and spiritual growth.

Join Mary Jo in a practical seven-session study and gain understanding and skill to share Jesus effectively with others, and you'll better understand your own faith. Answer your doubts, build your confidence, and start changing lives.
Seated by Donna Gaines:
Too many Christians go through life unaware of the riches we have in Christ. Discovering these blessings is the first step to living them out in daily life.
Written for women, this Bible study of Ephesians will help you and your group explore who God created you to be, how you can have relationships filled with the Holy Spirit, and what you can do to take charge of your thoughts and emotions.
