Bible Study: As It Was In The Beginning - Genesis - Chapter 30

Please forgive this rough draft format, as these are my raw study notes on the book of Genesis. I felt a great sense of urgency to publish them rather than waiting until I had the time to pretty them up. Thank you and I pray that God blesses you through this material. Stacey Take a few minutes to savor Genesis Chapter 30. Then return here and ponder the thoughts, answer the questions, and be sure to leave comments about your own revelations… 30:1 – Rachel begs for children. She doesn’t say “give me Jacob.” (Loved by God – Higgs) She cared more about showing her sister up than the fact that she had Jacob’s love. Rachel doesn’t have a relationship with the Lord while her sister, Leah, is deepening her relationship with Him. 30:4, 9 – what would possess a woman to give her husband another woman? Children were more important than fidelity. 30:9 – ancient law said that a wife would provide a servant for her husband if she didn’t bear a child in two years. Is this what she is doing

ALMOST FOREVER by Deborah Raney

Deb Raney delivers an emotion-packed, gripping story with the creation of Bryn. A firefighter's wife, Bryn thinks she knows more than most just how dangerous fire can be. Yet when it takes the life of her husband and four other firefighters, Bryn sees fire for the thief it truly is. From their mutual despair, Bryn and another firefighter's surviving spouse form a close friendship. As the relationship begins to blossom into more, though, the thief comes again and Bryn must face the question: what caused the fire that stole her husband's life? Here is my review of this intense read: First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Deborah Raney and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Almost Forever" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me. Deborah Raney’s “Almost Forever” is the emotionally gripping story of a firefighter
