Go, marry an unfaithful woman. Not exactly the assignment you want to hear from God. Yet it was what God asked Hosea to do, giving the prophet a unique understanding of what God was experiencing as his people turned away from him and worshiped false gods. Then God gave him messages for his unfaithful peoplemessages of warning and caution, messages hinting at redemption and grace, messages spoken to beckon them near to their husband-God. They were messages that made a big deal of a big lovea love too jealous to tolerate competition. In Jealous, Rebekah leads you through a Bible study of the book of Hosea and then recounts her personal stories of grace that are stirred from the Scriptures. The study will take you through each chapter of Hosea, engaging first your mind, then your heart, and then your hands. Following the study portion Rebekah tells of how God has rescued her and redeemed her own heart through the ups and downs, joys and pains of marriage, motherhood, and ministry. She will invite you to study Gods Word hard, for much more than an emotional fix or better self-esteem. Through this study, you will learn to consider who God is as husband-God and who you are as the unfaithful wife whom he married with eyes wide open.

Who are you, really? In an uncertain world, we crave the security of knowing exactly who we are and where we belong. But too often as women, we try to find this safety in our roles and relationships, our professional accomplishments, or our picture-perfect homes. And as we do, our souls shrink smaller and smaller. It's because these things aren't made to hold us. In Made for More, Hannah Anderson invites you to re-imagine yourself, not simply as a set of roles and categories, but as a person destined to live in the fullness of God Himself. Starting with our first identity as image bearers, Hannah shows how Jesus Christ makes us people who can reflect His nature through our unique callings. She also explores how these deeper truths affect the practical realties that we face as women—how does being an image bearer shape our pursuit of education, our work, and even our desire for holistic lives? Because you are made in God’s image, you will only ever know yourself—only ever be yourself—as you find your identity in Him. Find it now.
