Because YOU Need To

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

What on earth is the sweet Lord doing to me? Doesn't He know that I have four kids in my house, plans to move this summer, and a baby on the way?

He doesn't care, and I kind of like that about Him.

I wrote a few weeks ago about an online Bible study that I'm starting in connection with Beth Moore's Summer Siesta Bible study over Kelly Minter's study called Nehemiah: A Heart that Can Break. I'm very excited about that group and the community that we're going to build online.

But to be involved in that group, you had to be able to commit to three of our four meeting dates, have a webcam, and all that good stuff, and we had to turn people away because we wanted to be able to connect with a small group of women.

It occurred to me today that we could do something similar if we created a group of women and worked through a study on our own. The idea is the same: build a community among women and hold each other accountable to studying God's Word.

But this one will be on your own time. There will be no "meeting times." We will simply stay connected via a private Facebook group and use that forum to connect and share and discuss.

So, if you're interested in studying God's Word this summer and you're not in the midst of any other study, let me know. Leave a comment below and I'll find you on Facebook and invite you to our group.

We'll be working through Beth Moore's Believing God study. If you've never studied God's Word before or if you've been through a million Bible studies, this study is truly incredible. It's a great place to start as you build a foundation for who God says you are.



All you need to do to participate is comment below so I can add you to the Facebook group and purchase your member book. You can find it here at Lifeway for $14.95 or here at Amazon for $14.95. You should also be able to find a copy at your local Mardel store or Lifeway store.

Once you're a part of the Facebook group, I'll ask for your email address. If you're interested in watching the session videos (on your own time), I will add you to an email list where you'll receive access to them. You can also work through the workbook without watching the videos, but I personally love the videos and get a lot from them.

It's just another opportunity for you to dive into God's Word.....You really don't have any excuse this time. There are no time restraints. You work at your own pace. And you get a community of women working through the same homework as you for you to connect to online.

If He's been calling you to His Word, this may be exactly what you need. If you've never done a Bible study, this should be your first. If you've done a million, add this one to the list, and join us as we seek God's truth through His word this summer. Why? Because you need to. Trust me. It just may change your life....this particular study changed mine for sure.
