What are Beautiful Encounters and A Beautiful Story?
Beautiful Encounters: The Presence of Jesus Changes Everything by Erin Davis is a Bible study designed for girls in grades 7 to 12. When we encounter Jesus — when we reallyexperience Him — we discover a longing to connect with Him. And, as we learn more about His character, our faith and character blossom. The study examines the lives of 11 New Testament women who were changed by Jesus Christ. These women experienced the same needs, emotions, and longings that girls experience today; as girls realize this, they will see how a beautiful encounter with Jesus can transform them as well. This study was previously released but has been re-released alongside Erin’s new study, A Beautiful Story.
A Beautiful Story explores the lives of 10 Old Testament women whose seeming ordinary lives point the spotlight toward an extraordinary God. This 8-session study taps into the power of story to discover God’s character and redemptive plan in all of Scripture. These stories aren’t just scattered pages; they are bound together by the One who wrote them!
What is the study like?
Both studies contain Leader Guide material, personal study segments, optional activities for group discussion. Most commonly, these short-term studies are facilitated by a a leader for small or large groups of middle and high school girls.
What do I need to lead a group?
Each member of your group will need a book. The Leader Guide material is located in the back of either study for easy use. The books are $12.99 each and are available in print and eBook format!
