Overview
Living a Chocolate Life is a women's Bible study that warmly invites all to savor God’s rich and endless supply of grace in Christ. Whether you're sampling bitter nuggets of pain to sweet morsels of joy, this study reminds you that the Holy Spirit fills us with sweet faith in our Savior—and it is only He who can truly satisfy.
 
Written with a fun chocolate theme, each session focuses on one aspect of life as a Christian woman, encouraging you towards introspection and personal reflection. Designed to be 45-60 minutes long, each session includes at least one recipe for a chocolate dessert item, a Bible verse to memorize, chocolate trivia, and suggestions for group activities. Answers are provided in the back. Created for women 18 years and older, this study is ideal for women who have never attended a Bible study, or for women who are looking for a different type of Bible study.

Savor more light-hearted, yet compelling Scriptural connections in A Chocolate Life Women's Devotional.


What Others are Saying

"Deb Burma's love for the sweet truths of Scriptures shines through each page of this beautiful new Bible study. Through personal stories, riveting illustrations and meaningful Scriptures Deb challenges us to move from looking at God through the window of our experiences to looking at our lives through the window of the heart of God. She writes with an urgency to awaken us to celebrate the sweet victory that comes from wholeheartedly following Christ. This study will undoubtedly build your faith to believe that God's sweet life is available to you."

—Donna Pyle, Speaker, Author, Bible Teacher, Worship Leader, Blogger, Founder of Artesian Ministries


"Deb Burma’s new Bible study, Living a Chocolate Life, is a delightto the eye, to the ear, to the heart and soul. Perfect for small group or individual use, the author’s light-hearted (often humorous), and winsome approach readily engages readers from the start. Deb Burma understands women—she’s one of them—quickly becoming a Christian sister, and friend to the reader, uplifting and encouraging us to experience God’s 'rich, sweet, extravagant grace.' Grace becomes a powerful theme throughout this eight week study.

But Living a Chocolate Life is not only a “tasty treat.” (Note the luscious, chocolate, theme-related recipes in each chapter.) This is an in-depth Bible study. Each lesson’s central truth is clearly stated and developed. All main points are supported by Scripture. The author uses sound educational strategies, appealing to diverse learning styles, to guide participants in growing in faith and life. Options, variety and flexibility are built into this study. For example, “Chocotivity,” a hands-on group activity is included in each lesson to encourage dialogue, foster fellowship and offer opportunities for sharing. Living a Chocolate Life will appeal to women of all ages. The more I read, the more eager I became to share this study with my friends. Can’t wait!"

—Donna J. Streufert, LifeLight Author, Bible Study Leader


“Anyone who picks up a book written by Deb Burma is in for a sweet treat! Deb writes remarkably, from a genuine heart for REAL women. Doctors have said that chocolate is good for the heart! Hallelujah! And we know that God is great for the soul! Another Hallelujah! What a combo of these two blessings Deb has put together in Living a Chocolate Life! A little bit of chocolate and a bunch of our great God each day give one a taste to sweetly savor, a ray of hope for living from day to day, and a foretaste of the feast that is to come. Now grab your favorite chocolate, your faithful Bible and a copy of Living a Chocolate Life! Delightful! Delicious! Delectable!” 

—Terry Kieschnick, National Speaker, Ministry Leader, Mentor


"As I was reading Living a Chocolate Life, I kept picturing a small group of young women, or new Christians, or women who have shied away from Bible study because they don’t feel knowledgeable enough. Among them is a seasoned, Scripture-loving Christian woman sharing lavishly of God’s love and mercy as she encourages and guides the women around her. The chocolate is the starting point, but don’t underestimate the depth and power of Deb Burma’s integration of God’s sweet Word into our lives." 

—Lois Bartell Giordano, Educator, Encourager, Mentor, Bible Study Leader, Writer

DELIGHTFUL!

Perfect! Deb molds a palatable and luscious masterpiece which delights the mind with chocolate fun and the soul with God's lavish grace along with His rich truths. A Bible study delectably filled with digging into Biblical passages that are familiar, and some that are not so familiar. Indulge in the irresistibly delicious "chocotivities," "memory morsels" and more. Just like your favorite chocolate, this Bible study is hard to resist, and you will want to share it with your all friends and neighbors!

Loving the study, but...

Our Wednesday morning study is loving this study! But we had a problem with the cookie mix in the jar craft. The instructions say a 1 quart jar and to layer all the ingredients... I think you will need a 2 quart jar to get everything in! We had a wonderful time trying to figure this out today! Thanks so much for a wonderful study!

Do Not Miss This One!

My friends and I have been doing a weekly Bible study for over 20 years, and "Living A Chocolate Life" has been one of the best. It felt like Deb was sitting at the table with us as we conversed and studied. She is so down to earth and writes so well that the whole group did not want to miss a week. The theme of chocolate and how she used it each session to relate to the study topic was amazing. More than once she wrote something in just the right words that each of us needed to hear at that time. The study is fun, insightful, educational, and faith strengthening. You do not have to worry about sound doctrine when you do her study, which is great. I've done other studies that are good, but once in a while, as a Lutheran, I have to disagree with some things. Not so with Deb's books. This worked extremely well in a group setting but would also work individually. I plan to use it again in the fall at our church. Do not miss this study!

Gather your posse and dig in together!

Deb's new Bible study combines a girl's two favorite things: Bible study and chocolate! Gather your friends around both and dive into this amazing new study. You'll be blessed...sweetly.

Not your typical Women's Bible Study!

“Living a Chocolate Life” A Bible Study for Women, by Deb Burma Review by Shelly Burke “Living a Chocolate Life” is not your typical Bible study! It combines the fun of chocolate with God’s Word—sometimes fun, sometimes serious, always teaching us something and making our lives better. Each of the eight chapters of “Living a Chocolate Life” contain fun activities and facts about chocolate, but the main focus is always on God’s Word and applying it to our lives. The length of sessions is not overwhelming to busy women, but author Deb Burma makes every word count and readers will find insights into their own lives and to God’s love and His desire for us to live a fulfilling “chocolate” life, in every session. Deb shares personal stories and examples that will resonate with every reader. She encourages us to “Dig In” with questions that take us directly to scripture; answers will help readers and study group participants apply the lessons to their unique lives and situations. Each session contains seven “Dig in” sections, making it perfect to study daily or throughout the week as time allows. Deb does a great job of including “fun” with serious study! In the Introduction (don’t skip it!) she includes this fun way to help readers remember the “Memory Morsel” theme verse of each chapter; write the verse on a notecard and place the notecard and at least 7 chocolate kisses in a bowl; reward yourself with a kiss every time you read the verse (I will fill my bowl with many more than just 7 chocolates!). The “Take a Bite” questions ask readers to pause and consider a personal question and share in group discussion. The “Chocolate Fun Facts”, delicious recipes and fun “Chocotivity” in each chapter enhance the messages of the chapter and give suggestions for sharing God’s love with others in an unthreatening way. “Living A Chocolate Life” is a unique, fun and uplifting Bible study for women of any age and stage of their Christian walk. Every woman who participates in the study—individually or as a part of a group- is sure to feel encouraged as she finds her faith strengthened and gains a greater understanding of her loving God and His desires in her life.
