Story Driven Bible Study
I Am His: Experiencing the Comfort of Abba's Love written by Rita J. Platt is an 8 week Bible Study inviting women "to know the comfort of dwelling in the arms of a tender, wise, and powerful Abba Father. The book was sent to me by NavPress for the purpose of review.
The title of the book drew my attention immediately. Unfortunately many women, Christian women, seem to find themselves falling into defining themselves by what they do rather than by who they are in Christ. I was interested in seeing how Ms Platt would address the very important issue of women finding their identity in Christ and not other things.
I was a little disappointed. Much of the "study" is story driven and as "inspirational" as much of them were, it is not the same as a close look at Scripture, which I consider to be true "Bible Study". When God's word was examined, Platt does a good job of helping the reader take a look at what God has to say about He as our Father and we as His beloved children. This is a mistake I am beginning to see in many Bible Studies supposedly geared toward women. Who says women can't handle a good, long, hard look at the Scriptures?

Learning More About the Father
I am His by Rita Platt
I am His, is an 8-week devotional Bible study book to help women get a deeper sense of the Father’s love, comfort and care for them. There were definitely plenty of scripture verses, personal stories, prayers to pray, and little exercises to fulfill that goal.
Quite a few of the suggested things-to-do were completely new ideas for me. I can’t imagine anyone not being able to at least glean a few choice morsels from this comforting book. Even if you think you have a strong healthy relationship with the Father person of the Godhead, who couldn’t use strengthening in that area? I know I can! I intend to go back to this book several times to make sure I put into practice quite a few of the suggestions.
What was just a little bit bothersome to me, was that it was not clearly laid out in an 8 week format. Oh, there were 8 chapters all right, but it was not clearly divided into a day-by-day reading or thing-to-do. The author could definitely improve this book, if she were to clearly spell out what to read and do in a 5 or 7 day- a- week manner.
Even though it was not divided into daily portions, there was way too much information in there to read the book in one setting. To do that, would be to miss much of its richness. At a minimum, you need at least one day per chapter to benefit from it.
A lot of women go through their wholes lives not getting close to the Father. Oh, they are “in” with Jesus, and even at least a little bit familiar with the Holy Spirit, but sometimes we neglect our relationship with the Father portion of the godhead. Since this is true, if you are a women’s Bible study leader, I recommend this book to introduce this sometimes neglected topic of study to your group.

I am His

The author gently guides the reader to a greater understandin of Father God. Regardless of your relationship with your earthly father it is possible to have a close relationship with Abba Father and to delight in your role as one of His girls. This book shows you how.

I Am His...A Wonderful Bible Study
Do you ever wonder if God really loves you, even though you know you are forgiven, that He saved you and you will live forever with him? In this 8 week Bible Study, Rita J. Platt explains how we can Experience the Comfort of Abba’s, our Heavenly Father’s love for us. The chapters in this study are: Abba Father; Chosen to Belong; The Father’s Love; In His Arms; Under His Wings; Through Abba’s Eyes; A Generous Father; and A Daughter’s Inheritance.
I chose this book because it was a study of how much God loves us. When going through difficult time, and at other times for no apparent reason, I wonder if God really loves me like the Bible says. It sounds really ungrateful, but these feelings happen to so many people. I was in awe reading and studying through this book as the author gives scripture after scripture, as well as phrases, sentences, and statements concerning Gods real love for His children. I really enjoyed Rita Platt’s study, and you can feel her heart in what she is teaching.
Some of the things that really jumped out at me are:
1. You are in Christ. You are a daughter of the King. You are crowned with beauty, adorned with praise, and a new creation displaying the amazing love of your Father.
2. When Abba looks at you. He sees one who is in Christ. He sees potential, uniqueness, treasure, and beauty. His eyes glow with tenderness and love as He fixes His gaze on you.
3. Ask your Abba Father to be present with you in the midst of each situation, to hold you, and to help you receive His compassion and Comfort.
4. Our Father knows our deepest need and the fragile nature of our spirits. Regardless of our source of distress, we are restored as we flee to the quiet strength of His loving arms.
5. What are some new names your Abba Father might have for you? Picture yourself becoming a person who reflects your new name. What might that look like in your daily life?
And this is just a tip of the iceberg ladies, just enough to peak your interest. If you have a Sunday School class or a small or even large ladies study group; this would be an awesome study for you. Regardless of how we feel about God’s love, we can all learn so much from this study. We can never study enough about our Abba Father’s love for each of us.
I want to thank NavPress for providing me a copy of this book to read and review. The review and opinions are mine only. I was not requested or expected to write a positive review of this Bible Study. I wrote what I felt from my heart.

A Loving & Tender Bible Study
I Am His is advertised as "An 8-Week Bible Study for Today's Woman" and "Experiencing the Comfort of Abba's Love." I was hesitant as I began this study. However, after the first chapter, I was hooked. Rita J. Platt has such a tender way of pulling you close to her and helping you feel the love of our Redeemer. I appreciate her sincerity and humbleness that comes forth from the pages of her book. I believe that many women would choose to complete this study in less than 8 weeks. It is certainly very do-able. However, it is also perfect for very busy women who want to study the word, but struggle to find the time to do so. I am going to go through this study again to keep myself reminded of Abba's personal love for me.
I received this complimentary book from NavPress and have not been paid for this review.
