In all honesty, you need to know… I really love author Wendy Blight.

It is difficult for me to be unbiased about anything she writes. Her writing style appeals to me, and I adore the meaty approach she takes in teaching the Word of God. The deep affection she has for Scripture and the women she encounters through her ministry seeps into every word she speaks and every page she pens. My first encounter with Wendy was two summers ago when I read her book Living So That: Making Faith-Filled Choices in the Midst of a Messy Life

Loved it! It was just the book/Bible study this worn out and weary teacher needed to restore shalom that summer.

Her new book came at just such a time for me this spring…

I Know His Name: Discovering Power in the Names of God is a glimpse into the multi-faceted character of God through the study of His names. I actually completed this study as part of an online Bible study group through Proverbs 31. It was a joy!  I love the light accountability of an online women’s Bible study, and I dearly  appreciate the added benefit of a Facebook group in conjunction with Wendy’s emails, blogs and video clips.

The book, I Know His Name,  held my heart…every other part of the online study was rainbow sprinkles and chocolate icing. The big take away for me…from this book/Bible study…is the sweet intimacy of knowing our God through His character as it’s revealed through His Word.

Wendy writes, “He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. But to trust and believe this way requires an intimate personal knowledge of the character of God. For you cannot trust whom you do not know…”

Wow… This spoke to me… How can we put our trust in someone we do not know?  Trust for our  husbands, our children, our own lives…our todays and tomorrows…

I want to know Him more. I want to know His heart…

This study was manna for me.

Visit Wendy Blight at her webpage. Sign up for her updates. Look for her devotions and teaching on the Proverbs 31  First5 app. Her testimony is powerful, and she shares from a place of  deep healing through a growing faith.

On a personal note…you really want to buy the actual book for this study. I wish all Bible studies were written in this book format. The book itself is the perfect size to fit in my purse (uh…because a prerequisite for all of my purses it that they are big enough to hold a novel or Kindle!) It is a pretty book, and I love the paper used in the making of this book. Yes…I do. 

That sounds weird, I know, but the paper takes the inks of my Sharpies and colored pens beautifully! It was a joy to write in this book. No slick pages…

The books published by the InScribed Studies are all amazing in this way. 

This is some serious truth by someone who loves to write in her books with fabulous pens… yep!
