'To Bethlehem and Beyond! 31 Daily Readings, Sharon Hazel' Picture of the book on a table, txt 'Preparing for Christmas? "Readiness is a state of heart and mind'

As we approach the Christmas Season do you find it difficult, among all the busyness, to focus on the reason we are celebrating? I have a new daily reading devotional for December which is available, on Amazon, Kindle and Paperback, UK, US.

‘To Bethlehem and Beyond’ provides a daily scripture reading with a short reflection, and concludes with a takeaway thought and question. Each section closes with a prayer and there is space provided for you to journal your thoughts, as you respond to the word.

Come and travel through Scripture and reflect once again on God’s plan, the people drawn into the nativity story, and the promises fulfilled!

To Bethlehem & Beyond Advent Journal - a PDF free gift for subscribers to download.

Bible Study Resources

I love Bible study and my passion is to share and encourage others to dig deeper into the Bible, to read and explore God’s Word for themselves. This is the place to find bible study resources to encourage, develop, and deepen, our love for God’s word!

To start, it is helpful to have a good Study Bible in a translation that you feel comfortable with, and find easy to read and understand. In Finding the Best Study Bible for Women I review a great selection, in different translations and styles.

For summer reading here is a list of my favourite newly released Christian books, fiction and non-fiction – there is something for everyone.

Books – Bible Study and spiritual growth.

Light for the Shadows – I have a little booklet available on Amazon UK, US which is an A-Z of scriptural promises and declarations of faith. In the blog post, Light for the Shadows – A-Z God’s Promises, I explain a little bit of the inspiration behind collecting and writing these scriptures, and how when I needed some encouragement I had them with me.

Moving On, People Watching – This book is four Bible Studies, dealing with some of the issues which can prevent us from moving on in our journey of faith. I share a little more about the book in ‘Why Life Must Be Lived Forwards’. And the book is available on Amazon UK, US. Paperback and Kindle Edition.

Faith Talk – I am delighted to be included in this collection of international contributing authors, with a short piece titled: “A Friend Who is Always by My Side.” Available on Amazon UK, US on Kindle and in Paperback.
