Sisters of Lazarus

A Devotional Series

The SISTERS OF LAZARUS Devotional Series is seven devotionals centered around reading through the first two books in the SISTERS OF LAZARUS series.

Originally written to be used as part of a Lenten devotion, this devotional series can be used any time of the year and for any setting, from personal quiet times to book studies, to book clubs.

Each devotion includes a reading from either BEAUTY UNVEILED; Sisters of Lazarus, Book One, or GLORY REVEALED, Sisters of Lazarus, Book Two. It continues with a scripture, a devotional thought, and ends with a link to a music video that compliments the devotional.

By the end of the seven weeks, you will have read through both books.
