Lavish Grace is a unique, nine-week study of Paul’s experiences with and teachings about grace. Filled with contemporary examples of grace at work, this well-written format gives you the rare opportunity to combine a character and topical study into one rich, practical approach to Scripture. Lavish Grace will help you recognize how God’s grace is being poured out on you and through you. It will give you reason to rejoice in the grace that is available to you every day. As part of the Bible Studies for Women series, this study looks specifically at God’s grace: • Poured Out on us in salvation and for our continued spiritual transformation;
• Poured Through us as we become channels of God’s grace to others in practical ways;
• Overflowing in the inevitable difficult seasons where we need to rest in and rely on Him.

Kathy Howard calls herself a “confused southerner.” Raised in Louisiana, she has moved with her engineer husband around the U.S. and Canada. She says “pop” instead of “Coke” and “you guys” as often as “ya’ll.” But those things are just superficial – she’s still a southern girl at heart! Kathy has been teaching the Bible for over 25 years to a varied audience – everyone from middle school students to teen moms to church leaders. She has a Masters in Christian Education from the Canadian Southern Baptist Seminary. Kathy served on a church staff in Midland, Texas for the last five years until her family’s recent move to the Houston area.

Kathy and her husband have three children, two sons-in-law, one daughter-in-law, and four precious grandsons. When the family gets together there are also five dogs in the mix. Kathy writes to have something to do while she drinks coffee and eats chocolate. Find out about her books and speaking ministry and get discipleship tools and leader helps at her website:

My thoughts:

I have always struggled with really grasping the concept of grace. I mean, I’ve had a basic idea but this book really opened my eyes to grace and how God has lavished His grace on me for many years. Years before I ever asked Him to come into my life.

With this study you will see grace through the eyes of Paul and how God was working in His life long before He ever struck him blind.

This is a nine-week study that will walk you through these many forms that grace can take. You can work your way through the week anyway you wish. You could do it all in one sitting or break it up (which is what I did).  You could also do this study with other ladies or on  your own, either way I think you will gain a deeper understanding of how God has shown His grace to you.

If you are looking for a new Bible study this might be the one for you.
