About Reflecting Him
Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and Loving It is a ten-week women’s Bible study. Like Jesus’ parables (which teach important lessons by creating visual pictures for the reader), Reflecting Him uses familiar objects and situations (such as pottery, the human sensory system, and the sun-earth connection) and draws comparisons that help women become aware of Jesus working in various areas of their daily lives. The study is a unique and convenient lay-flat format, so you can write without that annoying bump (you know the one we're talking about.)
Each week is divided into five days (lessons), supporting the central theme for the week. Read the first two chapters (or weeks) online.
The study also has an online component through a Reflecting Him Bible Study Group on Facebook. Individuals working through the study on their own can still get the benefits of a group discussion while working at their own pace. Almost 200 people are in the group already and the discussions are really taking off.
This fall a leaders guide, videos, and music will be released to accompany the study.

CAFE LILY'S REVIEW:
Carla McDougal wrote Reflecting Him, a 10 week bible study, in hopes of offering daily, practical reminders of how to live a Spirit-led life, rather than a “flesh” led life. As a mom and a wife who has struggled with depression, Carla shares some of her experiences in a very vulnerable, easy to relate to manner. As I read through this study, I enjoyed how conversational Carla’s writings were – it was as if she was in the room with me, working through the study alongside of me. I enjoyed the Real Life Facts that she interjected in various
chapters, and her analogies of home life that many of us as women can relate to.
Each daily lesson includes 5 key elements: Introduction, Scripture Excavation, Hidden Treasures, Celebrating Treasured Gifts and Reflection Pause.
Each week focuses on a different aspect of life and then compares it
to a spiritual truth. Reflecting Him is easily adaptable for either individual growth or as part of a group study.
