NASHVILLE, Tenn. — As a singer, songwriter and speaker, Kelly Minter is passionate about helping women discover Jesus through Scripture. In her latest Bible study, Minter seeks to lead women toward the spiritual wholeness that comes from finding out what “breaks God’s heart” and then getting involved in God’s mission.
“A broken heart is often the very thing God uses to restore the broken,” writes Minter in Nehemiah: A Heart That Can Break, a new Bible study produced by LifeWay Women.
“My goal in this study is not to uncover every word [in Nehemiah], but to follow missional themes about service, Kingdom work, tender hearts, prayer, love of the poor and the sacredness of Scripture,” said Minter.
According to Amy Lowe, co-director of LifeWay Women, “This Nehemiah study is all about seeking out what God has put on ladies’ hearts to do for the suffering, broken and hurting people around them.”
“Kelly brings the book and person of Nehemiah to life,” said Lowe. “She takes what has often been seen as a ‘manly’ book about building and teamwork and reminds us that Nehemiah was a man whose heart broke for his people.”
LifeWay Women will celebrate the launch of the Nehemiah study at a live web party at 11am (CST) Feb. 1, 2012. (That's 12pm EST, ladies!)
The event will feature live segments with special guests Beth Moore and Lisa Harper. LifeWay Women is also hosting a sweepstakes with the winners being announced onair during the webcast.

- $100 LifeWay Gift Card
