Best price for this book: $ 9.95
Stronger: Finding Hope in Fragile Places - Bible Study Book by Angela Thomas-Pharr provides six weeks of personal study experience five days a week plus viewer guides for the 7 video sessions of this women's Bible study. Through biblical teaching and real life application, this study teaches that believers do not have to live in weakness. God is stronger than every struggle you will ever face. All who receive Jesus Christ have been hidden in Him. We have been made alive in Him through the forgiveness of our sin, filled in Him with all the fullness given to Him, brought near to God in Him, and blessed with every spiritual blessing in Him.
As we have received Christ Jesus, we are now called to walk in a manner worthy of Him. Strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in so great an inheritance. Today, because of Christ, you can live stronger. This study will guide women into biblical truth through exposition and story, so they live confident, transformed, Christ-radiating lives marked by His strength.
Through accurate Biblical teaching, real life observation, and everyday application, Stronger will guide participants to:
- Stop facing today in weakness and be strengthened by God’s promises to every Christ follower
- Tackle everyday struggles empowered with a biblical understanding of God’s riches and His love
- Overcome spiritual immaturity through Christ-centered teaching that produces growth and change
- Break life-long patterns of defeat and despair, refocused on the glorious hope promised to us in Christ
- Remove paralyzing inner anxiousness and truly live in the peace that surpasses all understanding
- Put an end to the self-focused distractions of striving, comparison, and performance so that your life will accomplish more for God’s glory
- Smile at the uncertain future, not because we are stronger, but because Christ in us, is stronger than all our problems

Brave: Honest Questions Women Ask (Bible Study Book)
Best price for this book: $ 7.53
Brave: Honest Questions Women Ask - Bible Study Book by Angela Thomas-Pharr is based on her trade book "Do You Know Who I Am? and other Brave Questions Women Ask." This Bible study for women looks at the heart of what women are thinking and feeling. Angela speaks to participants about deep feelings that all women have at one time or another. She looks boldly at some of the fears and struggles of being a woman, and she helps us see how we can be brave in the face of those challenges.
It takes a brave woman to ask these questions and dig into these topics alongside other believers. We’ve all got insecurities, flaws, and struggles that we’re afraid to address. But if we can be brave enough to raise the questions, God will answer us. You’ve got questions. God’s got answers. Be brave. Ask.
- Why can’t I get it together?
- Am I as invisible as I feel?
- What am I so afraid of?
Unlike many current Bible studies in the marketplace, in this study, each week does not necessarily build on the next. Therefore, the leader may choose the topic that most relates to the group at that particular time. This approach lends itself to a great fill-in Bible study in women’s Sunday school, connect groups, and small group gatherings. (7 sessions)
- I am worn out.
- I am suffering with a thorn.
- I am undisciplined.
- I am trembling inside.
- I am invisible.
- I am broken.
DO YOU THINK I'M BEAUTIFUL?
Best price for this book: $ 3.7
The question is uniquely feminine, and it resides in every woman's heart, in spite of her best efforts to ignore it. Although she aches to be adored and desired, she decides that it is good enough to be loyal, hard-working, strong, or steady.
But there is Someone who finds her beautiful, who adores her and seeks to woo her to Himself-and best-selling writer and popular speaker Angela Thomas explores the deep and life-changing implications for women who come to realize that. Practical Bible teaching and real-world advice help readers bridge the gap between the life a woman longs for, and the life she actually has.
Filled with warm, personal anecdotes, and written in an intimate, affable style that reaches out to readers, Do You Think I'm Beautiful? invites women to awaken passion, and to meet the embrace of the One who calls them beautiful.

A Beautiful Offering: Returning God's Love With Your Life
Best price for this book: $ 3.95
For many years Angela Thomas thought of the Beatitudes as a list of "Gotta Be's," as in: Gotta be meek. Gotta be merciful. And when she compared her life to the standard they set, she always felt that she came up short. But through God's great mercy, she has come to see this passage instead as a roster of "When You Are's." When you are meek, there is a spiritual inheritance. When you are merciful, you will be shown mercy.
This shift in thinking has led Thomas to understand that God does not require perfection, but rather our gracious obedience. In His eyes, our lives-complete with mistakes, blemishes, and imperfections-are A Beautiful Offering.
My Single Mom Life: Stories and Practical Lessons for Your Journey
Best price for this book: $ 3
The day Angela Thomas sold the only thing she had, the diamond from her engagement ring, to take care of her kids was the day she began to believe they were going to make it. In that decision, the faith she had always talked about became the faith she was going to learn how to live. In the years since, God has given Angela a passionate desire . . . to live an amazing life, even while raising four kids as a single mom. In this book she shares her hard-earned wisdom on loneliness, dating, finances, and parenting, encouraging every solo mom. "As a gift to our children," she says, "we can become healthy moms who are strong and amazing women in spite of our circumstances."
Do You Know Who I Am?: And Other Brave Questions Women Ask
Best price for this book: $ 4.94
In her book Do You Know Who I Am? Angela Thomas asks God if He knows her—and ultimately does He love her—as she is, right now, today. In each chapter, she names a different identity issue, such as: “I am invisible,” “I am worn out,” “I am undisciplined,” “I am ordinary,” and “I am afraid to dream.” With each honest admission, Angela teaches that God lovingly replies, “Yes, I know your heart. I see your struggle. Now…do you know who I AM?”
Ultimately Angela reveals that the secret to being known and loved lies in an intimate understanding of who God is. Each identity struggle is answered with a short biblical study on the character of God that assures readers that their personal, spiritual, and eternal fulfillment is not dependent on getting themselves together. Rather, God has a purpose for them just as they are—broken, afraid, disappointed, disillusioned.
Through vivid storytelling, biblical teaching, and practical application, readers will find the heartfelt answers they seek.
