Footnotes: Major Lessons from Minor Bible Characters by Julie Lyles Carr, a four-week women’s Bible study, inspires women to recognize that they live a “big” story as they journey through this study examining the backstories of people of faith who show us that minor players can teach major lessons.Pick up your copy of this NEW Bible study book when you CLICK HERE.

Footnotes introduces you to some of the people in the Bible who have only a small mention, just a footnote in a story. People it would be easy to overlook but we shouldn’t underestimate. As women work their way through this study, they will be inspired by these people of faith and learn to recognize that God has a “big” story planned for everyone, even if it sometimes feels small.

In Footnotes women will study the stories of:

  • Tychicus – who is an example of what it means to be a “bridge” in the lives of others
  • Joanna – who shows us how to actively participate in the work God is doing in the world
  • Epaphras – who encourages us to wrestle in prayer
  • Quirinius – who teaches us about entrusting our lives and legacies to God and His plan

These stories will encourage women to recognize the value and worth of their own lives in God’s economy, reminding them that they have an important contribution to make.
