Let’s Talk About Bible Study!

I started this post out by typing, “Good Monday morning, ladies!”, but then I realized it was Martin Luther King day, so instead I’ll say, “Happy Martin Luther King day, friends!”

I imagine many of you are at home enjoying some snuggles with your little ones who are out of school, or maybe you’re a teacher who is loving spending a Monday at home as opposed to at school, or maybe, just maybe, you’re like those of us at Living Proof and you made the typical drive to work this morning. Either way, I hope your morning has started out peacefully and wonderfully! A few weeks ago our fearless leader reminded us that working is not a curse! Working is a good thing. So if you’re fighting thoughts of envy today, remember it’s a blessing to be working. Work with some excellence today, despite the way you feel!

Anyway, I completely sidetracked. Typical.

We are in full Tuesday night Bible study mode around here! I promise we’ll try not to wear you out talking about it, but I think it’s safe to say it’s high priority around here, and we joyfully get to serve. But, it got me thinking about you! I know for a fact many of you also started your Spring Bible study here recently and I’d love to hear what you’re digging into this semester. Plus, posts like these always benefit the reader that is looking for a study to do but just needs an idea or two.

So, let’s make our comments easy peasy. I’ll start:

Name: Lindsee

City: Houston, TX

Bible Study: I am participating in the Tuesday night Bible study, Children of the Day, but I am also taking a group of high school girls through Believing God written by our Siesta Mama, Beth Moore. 

What are you most looking forward to? I am looking forward to watching these young girls learn the five statement pledge of faith and also being reminded of them myself. Praying we would all believe God for immeasurably more this year!

Your turn! No pressure to answer each of the questions, but it adds a little spice, doesn’t it? However, for sure add the Bible study and who it’s by so that if someone is interested in that particular study, they won’t have any problem finding it!

Oh, and I couldn’t log off without sharing a glorious picture with you all from Tuesday evening. I can take zero credit for this picture because someone actually texted it to me after Bible study that night, but I thought it was too fun not to share. Thank you for praying for our first evening! Praise God alone for a room full of ladies studying 1st and 2nd Thessalonians. You would not waste a prayer on our Beth as she concentrates on all things involving this study!

We love y’all so very much.

    Bible Study: Co-leading ‘The Patriarchs’ by Siesta Mama Beth :)

    Looking forward to homework! I don’t know exactly what God has for me, but I know when being in the Word consistently is the only way to find out. The last time I did this study I was in a very different place, so it will be interesting to see it from a different perspective. I also love the delightful women who are journeying together each Tuesday evening … the sharing, fellowship, laughter will be sweet :)

    I am participating in a ladie’s Bible study at my church. We are in the third week of Beth’s James study. I have done many studies through the years (Beth’s and others), but this is speaking to my heart in ways I’ve rarely experienced. It has been a very hard year for my family and James is speaking directly to me through this study.

    I look forward to memorizing as much of the book of James as I can. God is using His Word to heal my heart and transform my mind through a very difficult time.

    Wednesday Night Bible Study–group of current and retired teachers meeting right after school for about 5 or 6 years now. We are doing Kelly Minter’s NEHEMIAH because none of us really knew anything about Nehemiah.

    Thursday evening study with a friend at her church. We are doing Beth Moore’s JESUS THE ONE AND ONLY for the wonderful fellowship, lively discussions, and the acquisition of knowledge about our Savior.

    Tuesday nights with Beth doing 1 & 2 Thessalonians CHILDREN OF THE DAY. I just can’t miss out on a chance to listen to Beth in person and to get into a book I don’t know much about.

    And, of course, the SIESTA SCRIPTURE MEMORY TEAM because it’s fun.

    We are a new church plant ~ still meeting in our home :)

    Right now we have started a women’s accountability group that meets Tuesday mornings in different homes. We have around 12 women right now. Each one of us have the Jesus Calling daily devotional and a bible reading plan for the week. We come together and pray, I ask each sister to share how their bible reading is going, and what God has shown them in their quiet time. After we go around the room we then ask how our “take two” bible reading plan is going (We choose 2 chapters from 3 different books in the bible to read each week) and share what we learned from that. If we are short on time we share a verse or two that really stood out. We share any “God things” that happened throughout the week and then we pray for each other.

    Blessings to you all in your studies!! May God use each one of these groups for His glory!

    Our ladies group just finished up James, & we all loved it. What I most would look forward to, besides my family, I would give anything to be in that Tuesday night bible study. You ladies are so blessed to be there. Which if I can’t have the best thing, I am anticipating when the study comes out. Beth Moore can not produce them out fast enough in my book. Praying for the Beth Moore team & daily lives, thank you & bless you all for sharing your gifts with us.

    Please pray for me. This Wed. I start an intensive leadership training for Surrender the Secret. Surrender the Secret is a study that in the name of Jesus, frees women from the shame of abortion. My heart’s desire is to dispel the lies of the enemy that surely abortion is too great to be forgiven, and help reveal (as best as we can understand) how long, how wide, how deep and how high His love truly is for us. It’s mindblowing. This the world needs to know.

    I just started A Heart Like His by the one and only, greatest teacher in the world, Beth Moore. It’s the second time I’ve done it. I’m excited to see my growth as I look over the answers to the questions from years ago. The first videos were on VHS. I still have them. Loved the hair! Everything is bigger in Texas!! :) Love you, Beth!!

    My daughter and I are both super excited about growing and learning on Tuesday night at Beth’s Children of the Day! All through college she and some friends worked through Beth Moore studies and she has eagerly anticipated being back in Houston to attend in person! Today, she went back thru all those studies, labeling them semester by semester, finding the lessons that were missed during busy times and making a schedule to go back and finish them!
    Sorry, got sidetracked! I’m also doing a study with my community group from Bayou City Fellowship entitled “Feast: Finding Your Place at the Table of Tradition”. A Bible study, by Derek Lehman, that “focuses on the major feasts of the Jewish calendar and the celebratory design of God’s plan. Integrating Jewish and Christian perspectives, this study addresses the present-day church culture that is driven by work and less on celebration.” We are going to weave some of the traditional items and foods into our dinners at community group to make the lessons more visual and relatable. I love history and I think it will be really interesting and stimulating to do something a little different!

    I am studying Genesis with BSF. The life of Abraham is a wonderful example for us to follow and best of all, God’s attributes shine as we follow the story. Faith is my word for the year.
    So I look forward to watching my faith grow in areas where I have held back before.

    I am going through Kelly Minter’s No Other Gods study. I am most looking forward to growth that comes from digging out those deep roots of sin that sometimes I don’t even realize are there until God reveals them to me and refines me to make me more like Christ.

    Dori Cook says:

    Name: Dori Cook – Spring Hill, TN

    Bible Study: James: Mercy Triumphs by Beth Moore – We started last week with about 40 ladies from my church.

    I will confess that avoided this study for a solid year! To be honest, I knew what James would require just simply by studying the book. I knew that it would call me to make sure there is no gap between my faith and the reality of it in my life. I knew that I would be challenged and upended! But I also knew the logistics of this study! I knew there was a Level 5 and that God was not going to let me get by with anything less. (That’s just for me! No condemnation if He’s calling you to a lower level!!) But finally, it was time to face the fear of that and jump in the glorious waters!! I’ve had such a great time in James this week!!God’s Word has been, as always, lifechanging, as I’ve dared to look intently at it.

    The first week of homework has been speaking directly into my current family relationships. Melissa, your contribution in research and the extra material is so challenging and I love it!! And a week and a half into it, God has somehow allowed me to memorize the first 15 verses of Chapter 1, making this study come alive to me even more!! His Word is so wonderful!!

    This is the 6th Beth Moore study that I am leading, but have never done this one. I’m looking forward to how she really gets us in the Word every day. And that gets me closer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
