Reformed Theology Rescources

I know most of the members of the book club come from reformed churches of different denominations.

For the benefit of other members who are currently looking into reformed theology, it would be great if you could recommend books that you found particularly useful, when you where learning about the 'Doctrines of Grace', or struggling to work out what you believed.

I have recently recommended to a friend R C Sprowl's, 'Heart of Reformed Theology', as I had found it useful, however it does assume a level of knowledge of Christian terms, that is not common to those from Pentacostal or Charismatic backgrounds, and I'm hoping for some recommendations that may be simpler, or at least explain things in a way that is easy to understand.

Business Mums Network

In recent discussions with some of you we have been talking about working from home and I have mentioned the Business Mums Network.

I thought that I'd briefly tell you all about it. I've been a silver member of the business mums network now for about a year, and I've found it very helpful. It is an excellent resource, for business ideas and support on how to start and run your own business.

I've particularly enjoyed the Message Board where I've met a lot of the other mums, and found some lovely mums who sell all sorts of products. I even did some of my christmas shopping online, through different stores owned by mums from the network. It was very helpful whilst I was putting together the monthly planner this year, as I learned from other business mums what the copyright laws required, and they gave me links to ther relevant sites to help me find out exactly what I needed to do.

If your considering finding avenues to work from home, I highly recommend a visit to www.businessmums.com

A Faithful Woman Monthly Planners 2007




The 'A Faithful Woman Monthly Planner 2007' was inspired by the ladies in our book club, and has been designed with busy christian women in mind. The format of the planner has been influenced by our reading of Elizabeth Georges books.

You can personalise your planner with your own photograph or design your own hand crafted fabric cover and it is available hole punched for a ring binder or spiral bound.

The planner is tab divided into 4 sections:

  • Monthly Planner, including week to a page, month to page, meal planner for each month, and a schedule planner.

  • Quiet Times; monthly quiet times journal.

  • Things to remember; a space to write down special things to remember, includes inspiring and encouraging quotes.

  • Book Club; reading record and book club notes.

  • I would like to say a special thankyou to all the book club girls for their support and suggestions for the planner.

    I have already had enquires from people interested in a copy of the planner, so I have decided to offer another print run in January. If you know anyone who would like a planner, or you missed out on this print run, please comment on this post or send an email to afaithfulwoman@splitpantsproductions.com.au to receive an information sheet and order form. Orders close 19th January.

    For those who orderd by 15th of November, the planners are now ready and will be delivered by Friday the 15th of December.

    'Twelve Extraordinary Women' by John McArthur



    The book we are reading at the Moment is Twelve Extraordinary Women, by John McArthur.

    Blurb: 'Celebrated for their courage, vision, hospitality, and spiritual giftedness, it's no wonder women were so important to God's plan revealed in the Old and New Testaments. It wasn't their natural qualities that made these women extraordinary but the power of the one true God whom they worshiped...'

    Welcome to Our Women's Book Club

    Welcome to 'Our Women's Book Club'

    I have found it difficult to find good christian books to read. Walking through rows and rows of books I find myself overwhelmed, with the choices, made more difficult because I didn't know who was a good author; Who was sound and biblical; who was going to encourage me in good theology.

    Our book club has been a great encouragement as other women have recommended good christian books that have both challenged and encouraged me. And I thought this space would be a good place to share that with others.

    So if you are not part of a book club, but would like to be, join our women's book club and share your thoughts on the books we're reading.
