Becoming a True Woman...by seeking the Lord with all my Heart (Year Three)
True3 builds on previoius two studies to challenge girls to consider the implications of the covenant for faith and life. It is divided into three parts:
1) How to understand Scripture from a covenant perspective. The more we know the legacy of grace we have been given, the more we will love and treasure it.These lessons present the glorious doctrine of the Covenant of Grace.
2) We have been given a legacy to live out, to guard and to pass along. Part 2 explores how to live covenantally in relationships. The purpose of every relationship is God's glory; therefore, the authority for how we relate to others is God's Word.
3) A pracitical application of what was learned in Parts 1 and 2 through a study of Ruth. This biblical story shows us the [sometimes] bitter providences of God's people against the ultimate backdrop of blessing and familial love and devotion guided by God's law.

The Legacy of Biblical Womanhood Centered around the motif of the covenant, Susan Hunt and Barbara Thompson have written a book for women and about women. This book underscores and personalizes a scheme set forth a number of years ago by the New Testament scholar William Hendriksen in his book entitled The Covenant of Grace. Hendriksen wrote, “The doctrine of the covenant of grace is of great practical significance. If we rightly grasp it, it will influence all of thought, word, and deed.” You will not miss the book’s intention to say clearly and practically that the idea of the covenant is not just a part of biblical theology to be believed. As with all doctrine, it is to be lived.
