I am excited about my new book,” exclaims Mindy Ferguson. “Through my travels in this country as a Christian Women’s Group leader, I meet many women who share how God leads and helps them through their every day difficulties. This gave me the idea of coupling these stories with short Bible lessons. My thought is that the combination will not only inspire women to greater faith, but also help them to discover the relevance of God’s word in their lives today. My book is a collection of 52 personal inspirational stories each one followed by a short scriptural lesson.”
It took a long time for Mindy to come to know God herself and draw close to Him.
“I grew up in a home with parents who did not talk about God at all. When they were divorced it was a very difficult time for me. I felt so alone and lost. I had no anchor. It wasn’t until I was 26 years old that my husband and I both said ‘yes’ to God. I was completely transformed on the inside and suddenly my life took on more meaning and fulfillment than I ever dreamed possible.”
“This world teaches us ‘it’s all about me.’ I now know that true inner joy comes from knowing it is all about God and His glory.”
Who will you meet in Mindy’s new book, “The Hugs Bible Reflections for Women?” You will meet women sharing their real life struggles ranging from the loss of a husband to destroyed financial dreams, from answered prayers for a mission team to tragic health issues.
“My purpose is to encourage women of all denominations to develop a more intimate and fruitful relationship with Jesus Christ through the study of God’s Word.”
Mindy’s new book is a part of the Simon & Schuster Hugs series. Her writings are also found in “Chicken Soup for the Mother of Preschooler’s Soul,” the “P31 Woman” magazine, “Just Between Us” magazine and “One Year Life Verse Devotional.” She is the author of “Walking With God: From Slavery to Freedom: Living the Promised Life,” an in-depth Bible study for women.
