CHRISTIAN WOMEN’S BOOK CLUB
Revelations 12:11 says “they have overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony”. What a great way to overcome him but by reading Christian testimonies (autobiographies and biographies) and other Christian literary works. “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up (1 Thess 5:11) by sharing your own words of wisdom and faith. Most of all, we want to develop new friendships and expand our Christian family.
Since we believe in structure and order, please read and abide by the following guidelines:
