Reflecting Him Virtual Book Tour-Guest Post by Carla McDougal

I am participating in a blog tour for Carla's new book, Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and Loving It. 
Carla has provided an awesome guest post from her book to share with my readers.

From the Mouth of Babes
Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him. – Hebrews 11:6

Did you wake up with thoughts of Jesus on your heart, mind, and soul? 
So often when the alarm rings we hit the snooze button a few times, which leads to the “Late Again” disorder. We fly out of bed and then rush, rush, rush to get ready for the day so we’re not late for our appointments, church, work, school, etc. All the while, Jesus is on the back burner of our minds. In His tenderness, He never pushes Himself on us. He desires for His children to seek Him, search the Word, worship Him, and call upon the name of the Lord in all things.
When my children were younger, they knew I loved to spend quiet time with the Lord in the morning. They observed this on a regular basis (hint, hint: I said “regular,” not all the time!). Anyway, one day after dealing with the kids arguing and fussing, I finally hit the point of blast-off. I sent all four children to different parts of the house to bring some calmness back into our home. From one room I heard Luke, eight years old at the time, ask a question that penetrated my heart. In fact, it still lingers in the crevices of my mind. He said, “Mama, I need to ask you an important question. Did you have your quiet time with the Lord this morning?”
All of a sudden, I realized I had not even thought about the Lord that day. Before getting out of bed my wheels had been spinning ninety miles an hour, planning the tasks for the day. No thought of Jesus had entered my heart, soul, or mind.
How can my faith grow in the Lord if I don’t take time to be with Him? Oh, what we can learn from the mouths of babes!
This is an excerpt from Carla’s 10-week Bible Study, Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and Loving It

About Reflecting Him
Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and Loving It
is a ten-week women’s Bible study. Like Jesus’ parables (which teach important lessons by creating visual pictures for the reader), Reflecting Him uses familiar objects and situations (such as pottery, the human sensory system, and the sun-earth connection) and draws comparisons that help women become aware of Jesus working in various areas of their daily lives. The study is a unique and convenient lay-flat format, so you can write without that annoying bump (you know the one we're talking about.)

Each week is divided into five days (lessons), supporting the central theme for the week.
Read the first two chapters (or weeks) online.

The study also has an online component through a
Reflecting Him Bible Study Group on Facebook. Individuals working through the study on their own can still get the benefits of a group discussion while working at their own pace. More than 200 people are in the group already and the discussions are really taking off.

This fall a leaders guide, videos, and music will be released to accompany the study.

Carla McDougal is the founder of Reflective Life Ministries and Share Fair, an annual conference for connecting, equipping, and encouraging women in ministry. She speaks at women’s events, retreats, and conferences in the U.S. and internationally. Carla married her high school sweetheart, Fred, and they have four children ages 16 to 23 and live in Magnolia, Texas. Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and Loving It (WinePress Publishing, 2010) is Carla’s first book, although she’s been involved in leading and teaching Bible studies for more than 20 years. Carla writes a Monday morning e-votional at her blog, Carla's Corner.

I am enjoying this study very much.
I have been faithful to answer each question, even when I feel like I really don't want to and God is showing me amazing things!

I have really like that each week has 5 days of study... It normally takes me 6 or 7 days to complete the 5 days, because of my business life...but that is ok!

Awesome study! Well worth the time and investment.


(An actual review post will be provided toward the end of September. KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR IT!)
