- A thoughtful companion piece to the book and study guide. by Traci on 3/11/2015
We used the whole Bible study package in our small group of women (book, study guide and DVD). I really liked the DVD. We enjoy seeing the authors of our studies. It helps us hear their voice when reading the books and homework. The DVDs are about 20 minutes, so you still have time to do other things in the group time. Each one starts out with a short story from one of the group participants. I liked hearing from someone common, like me. When Stasi started to speak, I found her very personable as well. A natural speaker.
Stasi was very vulnerable in these videos. It helped me feel more comfortable sharing with our group the areas where I struggle.
- I really like Stasi's disarming approach by Heart of a Philanthropist Blogger on 3/8/2015
HoaP would like to thank Family Christian for gifting us a copy of Stasi Eldredge's Becoming Myself: Embracing God's Dream of You DVD in exchange for an honest review. This review was first seen on Heart of a Philanthropist's blog.
As I sat and watched Stasi Eldredge speak, I felt like I was in her home sitting with friends and discussing God's Word. She possesses a unique quality to draw the listener in and to hang on every word she says. Stasi is John Eldredge's wife (in case you've heard of him). She brings her husband into the conversation a few times. I didn't realize who she was until she mentioned her husband.
Her main gyst is that we need to become our unique selves, but is that possible? Not without seeing the love God has for us as individuals. When we learn to love Him more freely, we will see ourselves differently and will become that person we want to become. She explains that we will all have a bit (or a lot) of our mothers in ourselves. There is nothing wrong with that, but if it is what hinders us, then we can turn that over to God, and He can change our lives for the better. So many women were berated as children, possibly even abused, and this hinders the unique self.
Stasi explains that we as Christian women all too often try to go the road alone, but we need Christian women in our paths to forge bonds with and to be accountable to (Kinda Jesus with skin on).
Stasi's DVD is very lighthearted at the beginning. She cracks jokes when appropriate, and feeds us meat and potatoes in the middle. You will learn about yourself, and hopefully heal and grow by the time you are done with the Becoming Myself series. I am recommending it to our lady's pastor for a small Bible study.
