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/Book – I am meeting with about 10 other ladies at one of their offices every Monday night and we are reading through Phillip Keller’s “A Shepherd Looks at the 23rd Psalm”. I have read it several times and been blessed beyond measure learning what David meant, being a shepherd, as he wrote Psalm 23 and what an amazing Good Shepherd our Heavenly Father is. We have only gotten to “The Lord is my Shepherd”, and that alone has blown us away. The creator of the universe, the almighty God is MY shepherd. We studied and discussed that our first week and ended our time with communion thanking Him for the price He paid so that we could be His sheep.
    My prayer is that each of us grow to know Him in an even deeper, sweeter way through this study.

    I am on my TENTH time to facilitate the Breaking Free Bible study and will soon be starting the ELEVENTH – the largest group was 7 but quite often it is one-on-one. God used the study tremendously in my life and has put a burden on my heart to see other women find freedom in Christ. Isaiah 61:1!

    My husband and I are doing the Daniel bible study by siesta Mama! We are really enjoying watching the videos together and we each have our own approach to the bible study during the week. I have found that I like to sit down and do all of the days at one time which has been great!

    Studying I & II Thessalonians with Beth Moore “Children of the Day”

    Lindsee, I saw you last week in the fellowship hall and had this urge to shout out across the room, “L-I-N-D-S-E-E-E-E-E,” as if we were long lost friends. I feel like I know you! See you tonight.

    What a blessing to live close enough to participate in the Children of the Day in person!! Bringing my daughter and her friend and a few others tonight – can’t wait for powerful worship and inspired teaching. Beth’s excitement for the Word bubbles over to us all. She is so energetic I have to rest for half an hour afterwards visiting with my sisters (and letting the traffic clear out. We have also discovered Kelly Minter studies and are currently in Nehemiah.

Also, I am going to facilitate Beth’s and Melissa’s Deutronomy study at my church beginning on February 2.

    I just started Beth’s Living Beyond Yourself:Exploring the fruit of the Spirit.

    This study has been on my heart for a few years now, so I am extra excited to dig deep and learn about these fruits. A few days ago I would not have been able to tell you what the fruits of the Spirit were, but today I can recite Galatians 5:22-23. I am excited to take this journey with my best friend that lives in San Angelo and to really do some supernatural growing in those 9 areas.

    Thanks so much and God bless, siestas!

    A self-written bible study on I Thessalonians – we are on chapter 3 this week. Imagine how super excited I was that Beth was doing the same one. There are about 35 women signed up for it – I send out the lesson each week – and then we connect on-line with additional questions and comments.

      I would love to join an online study if yours is available to “outsiders”. I have been unable to find anything locally…I’m in AL.

      • Judy says:

        Sister, if your will contact your local Southern Baptist Association they may tell you who has checked out the kits that go along with most of the Bible studies. I pray that you find a group of ladies to explore the scriptures with — I have found that a group of 6-8 is always helpful. I’ll be praying that you are able to join a group.

      • Rhonda says:

        Lisa – sure thing – my email address is Rhondamiller5044@yahoo.com – Email me and I’ll send the first lessons.

    I’m participating in a Bible study with about a dozen other undergrad girls at my school–perhaps leading a couple of weeks as well! We’re going through “A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place” by Beth. I am so looking forward to digging into the Word with such a focus on Biblical history, and I am definitely excited about building such rare Christ-centered community on a very spiritually dead campus. But I know this is going to shine a magnificent light here as we come together and really magnify His name as He enables us. So grateful!

    This momma hasn’t had time to do an in-depth study for 4-5 years. SIGH! What I am learning/looking forward to is letting go of worry, anxiety, stress and learning to make myself less and trust God more. To live, moment by moment, Eucharisteo living. Always giving thanks, even in the roughest moments.

    Houston, TX – Usually I facility a bible study in my home (we’ve done “Jonah” – Priscilla Shirer, “When Life is Hard” – James MacDonald, “Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul” – John & Stasi Eldredge, “Me, Myself & Lies: A Thought Closet Makeover” – Jennifer Rothschild, “Victory in Spiritual Warfare” – Tony Evans – BTW, all of these are GREAT studies!) but his semester in addition to Tuesday Night’s live with Beth, I am taking a classed entitled: “Perspectives on the World Christian Movement” http://www.perspectives.org. We start week two tomorrow night and I’m pumped. It is a VERY in depth study of God’s word, “…a course on how every believer can be intimately woven into the story of God using His people to be a blessing to all the peoples of the earth.” All I can say is WOW, DEEP, THOUGHT PROVOKING! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me and for those taking the class alongside me.

    Right now I am going through the Multiply Movement material by Francis Chan and David Platt. I went to their conference back in November and their challenge is to go through this material with at least one person this year, so I’m going through it first and it’s wonderful for disciple-making!
    Also, I will begin facilitating Priscilla Shirer’s study of Jonah next week. Really looking forward to diving deeper into this well-known Bible story and learning lessons from his life that I can apply to mine.

    Donna says:

    I started in November with a group of ladies doing Beth’s latest study on the Law. But got sidetracked with family and illness and money woes. We hope to have a new class at the church soon. Our church is an “older congregation” it’s difficult to get a lot of these ladies out when it’s cold with snow on the ground. We’ll start another class the end of Feb. or first of March. Please say a prayer for our church as it is goes through a most difficult time.

    I am in a small group using Companions In Christ on Mondays, Wednesdays I co-lead Disciples II. And I am doing the Good Morning Girls study of Luke with a friend via email.

    Lindsee, You are the web person so I just wanted to share my disappointment with the new iPhone app. When it loaded it completely wiped out the 2011 siesta app and all those Bible verses were gone as well as the 2012 verses that I had memorized.

    I continued to use the 2011 app in 2012 to keep memorizing verses. I was VERY sad to see that all gone. I loved the app, seeing the verses quickly and easily. It was a sad, sad day. So I am looking for another way to save my verses as I realize now that this app is not meant for my personal memory use but for the group at large. Any suggestions?

    • 185.1
      Lindsee says:

      Judy, I am so sorry that happened and I wish I knew what to tell you. The only thing that comes to mind is if you backed up your phone (using your iTunes on your computer), you should have all of them stored somewhere. I’m ashamed to say I didn’t use the app last time to its full potential, so this is not my area of expertise! Again, I’m so sorry. If I was aware that an update would wipe out the previous year, I would have most definitely given a heads up.

    • 185.2
      Susan C. says:

      Hi Judy,

      What about using the “Notes” app on the iPhone (comes standard or “Voice Memos” and record yourself speaking the verse. That’s actually how I memorize and in the car sitting in traffic I play it back over & over & over and eventually I’m able to say it aloud with myself!

      All the best to you!

      Sandy Bowers says:

      Judy,
      I’m so sorry that happened. I haven’t used the iPhone app because I have an iPod Touch. I downloaded VerseByHeart from the app store, a free download. Then I copy my verse from Bible Gateway and paste it into the app. There are three drills to help you learn the verses. I don’t know if it’s like the SSMT app, but it works for me. Hope that helps Siesta!

      Judy, look in your apps and see if the old app (2011) is still listed but not activated. It might have replaced it but not really delete it.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this transforms my life as I am traversing a new community and new group of people similar to the mission of Paul. I think it is amazing that as I moved here I was in the middle of the 90 day devotional book on Paul using the book of Acts and then the local CBS was choosing Acts for their study. I am so grateful to the connections God makes for us.

      Our ladies’ Bible study is beginning tonight with a 5-week study of One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.
      On Monday nights we have a Bible study in our home usually taking a chapter a week. This time we’re studying the book of James. I have taken Beth’s study of James with our ladies’ group, and my husband and I both took a course on James offered at Lee University here in Cleveland. They have a wonderful program for senior citizens, offering 2 courses per semester for $25.00! This course used a workbook written by the teacher, Dr. William Simmons. We really enjoyed it and are using things we learned there as well as from Beth’s study as we study James together.

    Our Tuesday morning group has been meeting for four years with different women cycling through, mostly due to the large number of military families in our congregation.

    Our Tuesday morning group ran out of Beth Moore studies-and all of us have repeated at least one. So, we are doing Walking By Faith by Jennifer Rothschild. I am really enjoying her songs as well as the teaching. I used one of the verses she teaches with (HEB 11:l) as my memory verse last week.
