A Little Leader Love

Two weeks ago we wrapped up our Breaking Free Bible study in Houston and we got a chance to share a little bit about it on the blog. Now we would love to hear from all you Bible-study-leading, blogging siestas. How did your semester go? Chime in whether or not it was a Beth Moore study. We just want people in the Word!

    We’re going through a study on Esther ourselves and loving the Word of God together. It’s just amazing to me to see that moment when the truth manifests itself in a woman’s mind and heart. One thing you’ve all helped me with so much as a teacher is to cherish those ladies who stick with the study throughout the entire thing. I agree that even one time in Bible study class won’t be wasted, and so I’m grateful for every one who comes even once, but it is such an encouragement to me when I see the same faces week by week and see what God is doing in the lives of others.

    I just found this blog not long ago and it is fun to see the “behind the scenes” of LPM. I help lead a high school small group with a good friend. We are coming to see Beth in San Diego this weekend and we are so excited.

    Oh Beth,
    After leaving a home study group in Tulsa, God gave me the courage to begin one in Austin last year. He has been sooo good!! Most of the women were old friends and many had never done a Bible study. You and the Lord have blessed us with “Jesus The One and Only” and currently “Living Beyond Yourself”. We have all learned so much and are looking forward to seeing you and our Tulsa “sister group” in San Antonio in August.

    I have facilitated several of Beth Moore’s studies at our church, and the ladies love them! (me too)

    In January we began Jesus the One and Only . . . I “passed the reins” over to a wonderful woman, as my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma. We have since been in Houston at MD Anderson receiving treatment (and will be here until July), the study at home has gone well and I was able to finish by downloading the sessions from Itunes.

    These studies have made me fall in love with God’s Word. I cannot imagine going through any of this without my wonderful Savior!

    Thank you Beth Moore for allowing God to use you!

    I am getting ready to begin “Breaking Free” (I definitely need structure & accountability, especially being so far from my home, family and Bible study sisters!)

    Hi – the ladies group I lead is a group of women that work outside the home. It has been an extremely wonderful group of women. We are totally in love with Beth’s studies. We just finished Believing God, and loved it! We did Fruit of the Spirit right before this. On April 23, we are going to read a fiction book, The Yada Yada Prayer Group. This blog has been an inspiritatio to us, and I often read comments from the blog to our group. Thanks for all the wonderful words of wisdom!

    O My! What Godness we have Seen!!We have done 2 annual studies each year for 10 yrs – one begins Jan…EXCEPT this time for some reason (then unknown to us) we did not begin the winter/spring one until April -with Stepping Up. Had no clue really the specifics it dealt with before beginning -It ‘just so happened’ to coincide with our having just begun a search for a new Worship Arts Minister and it ‘just so happened’ we began the first night on week 1 of a 2-week prayer vigil for the Worship Min search…How Fitting could that have been!! I nearly melted out of my seat as I listened to the videos with my women and as the Lord spoke so profoundly that we were to follow video with spending time on our face as we went through the Prayer Labyrinth journey…I thought Dear Lord, you had this study written just for us, just for now!! Um,mm, mm. Don’t you just LOVE our ‘just so happening’ God!!!

    Several of us in the convent did Beth’s Stepping Up study for Lent. It was wonderful preparation for Easter.

    Thank you to all at LPM that make these studies possible.

    We just finished the updated version of “A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place.” I have facilitated I think around 6 other of Beth’s studies and NEVER has the power of the Holy Spirit been on a study like it has in this one. Every week we would sit in awe at the end of the video amazed at what we had learned and hungry for more. I typically take a break from Bible studies in the summer as I find I do not have the attendance like I do during the school year. However, I believe I was in week 8 of the study when I felt God telling me to be open to having a study for late spring and early summer. In session #9 several of the ladies asked me if we could do the study again right away because they were learning so much and felt like they could learn more if they could go through it again. We are very blessed in Missouri to have our SBC Covention purchase women’s studies and loan them free of charge to churches. So, I told the ladies I was very willing to do this again but I had to check with my contact and make sure that no other churches in MO had requested to use it. We were all so excited to find out we could keep the study for another session. We will start it up again on April 21st and I have other ladies in the church and community that are interested. I myself can’t wait. I have never had such an experience with a Bible study like this one. Nearly every video would bring me to tears and many times the homework would do the same. God has really been working in my life and showing me things about Him I didn’t know.

    I would ask for all of your prayers. I am 40 and never married. I know that through this study God is asking me to give my “singleness” to Him. It’s very hard for me as it’s always been my dream to be a wife and mother. I know that for right now He is calling me to be single but it’s a real struggle for me. How many of you know when God is asking something of you and you try and resist and all it does is make you miserable. That’s where I am now. I would sure appreciate some prayer. I know He has a great plan for me, but giving up that dream of being a wife and mother is hard. However, I never want to get in His way and the plans and work He has for me to do.

    xssudWe have started Stepping Up – in our second week. (We did a Priscilla Shriver one first) I stood up and cheered when Beth said Travis would be on the videos! Most thought me crazy, but I love his music, how he can pull the emotions right out of me! So happy – and I still blast his CDs in the car on the way home. Thanks so much!

    We just finished “A Heart Like His”. What a blessing it was to all the ladies. We’ll start “Stepping Up” in the fall. Beth, thanks so much for being obedient to God and providing these much needed studies. I love “hosting” them, as I’m certainly not a teacher, but have a heart for women’s ministry.

    Blessings to you, your family and all the siestas!

    Some of the women in our church will be starting Stepping Up next week; & I might add that we’re chomping at the bit to start! Last fall we did Breaking Free, & before that Daniel & The Patriarchs. This summer we’ll be doing A Woman’s Heart, God’s Dwelling Place—can’t wait for that one, too! We’ve also went through Nancy Leigh DeMoss The Lies Women believe & The Truth That Sets Them Free.We’ve been able to do them in my home & the last one my husband offered to do child care! Bless that man!I love the insight God gives Beth to give to us! He has blessed her with a rich gift! And,you sure can tell what we’ve studied with her because those portions of my Bible are well worn & marked.
    Praises to Him!

    Hey, all. We just finished Believing God. By the end of the study, we were all lifting our shields, saying our pledges and clapping our hands! When we see each other we motion the I Believe God signs. LOVE IT!! We did Daniel in the Fall Semester. Talk about a year’s work out!! I just love the meat in these studies, and our ladies liked the work, too. I’m not sure what we will do next, compared to these two, other studies seem like pie!

    How about another “kick butt” study, Beth? We’ve got our “big teeth” and want to keep them sharp. Thanks for all your work. God’s lavish blessings onya’ dear teacher.

    Last semester I was in a Bible study with some girls in the neighborhood and we did Kelly Minter’s study “No Other Gods: Confronting Our Modern Day Idols.” It challenged me so much that I decided to do it again this spring to deal with some other struggles that I’ve developed. Haha..just when we think we’re doing ok up pops another one. 🙂

    I’ve also just started Mama Beth’s 90-day David study…and so far it rocks my face off.

    Our small group is in week 2 of Stepping Up. We are really enjoying it. Some of us were Raleigh girls, so it’s near and dear to us!

    We did the Loving Well as a four week study in Feb/March. One of our sweet women contiunes to remind us that “there’s something broken in that person” whenever we complain about our foes! We tease her relentlessly, but thank her for reminding us of what was a short but convicting study! And of course some of us did marry our testys! I nearly fell in the floor over that!

    I saw you for the first time in Atlanta Georgia in 2002 or 2003. On the way home I felt God telling me to facilitate a study. Each one has changed my life and brought me closer to God. Thank you for all you do. The blog has been awesome. It’s so much fun and much much more!

    It is so cool to see all the different studies that everyone is doing or has just finished.

    For almost 10 years I had the privilege of leading many different studies (many written by our dear Beth). But for now God has me side-lined and it is a season of being alone and trying to do “study” mostly on my own. On Fridays I do have a group of women come into my home and we did Living Free and now will start something new this week.

    Off topic: but I know you are prayer warriors…my marriage is at the end unless God intervenes. I covet your prayers.

    Michelle Bentham says:

    After leading women’s ministry for 4 1/2 years, we moved to a new church and I am not leading a group of women through Bible study this season. I had picked up “A Woman’s Heart” last summer because I was anticipating leading our women at the former church through the study in the fall, however, since I was no longer in the lead – I took up the study and have been working my way through it a little at a time savoring the “glory” of the tabernacle and the Holy of Holies as I go along. I am actually attending an event at our church called “Beyond the Veil” that takes you through a very intimate corporate (almost an oxymoron?) worship experience that takes the entire group through every aspect of the desert tabernacle all the way into the Holy of Holies in worship and prayer.

    It is really beautiful.

    I did not join any Bible studies last fall, but this Spring I found one that was led by the author of the study in our Life Group selections so I signed up. It is called “Walking In Victory” and is a very anointed teaching on the victorious life written by a member of our church that we have been journeying through this Spring. We will finish up in May. It looks like I will have my own group in the fall, and I can’t wait!

    Blessings sweet siestas… can’t wait to meet ya’ll this August at the Siesta Fiesta in San Antone!

    The Bible Study I participate in also wrapped up “Stepping Up”. It was awesome. It is amazing (sad as well) that growing up in church, I never made, nor was taught the connections of the “whys”–why Jesus spoke about what He did in relation to when He was speaking it.
    We are now in the midst of “Attending The Bride Of Christ” by Martha Lawly. It has also been great. Being in the Word with a group of women is so refreshing and challenging!

    Joanne (The Simple Wife) says:

    Oh my goodness! We just finished week 5 of Stepping Up and I’m SO SAD that it’s almost over. But I’m excited to hear what the next step is for the women who’ve been coming. I told everyone that I thought Beth might ask us as part of the last week’s homework–and if she didn’t, I would!

    It will be exciting to see where God is leading and a privilege to pray for each woman as she takes that next step.

    So I’m in that place of wanting to dig into the last week and see what’s there, but also not wanting to start it because that means finishing it!

    Our ladies just finished “Stepping Up” about a week ago. It was such a wonderful reminder of how we are on this journey together and we need each other. We started out with about 30 ladies and for various reasons we ended up with about 20 faithful attendees. (for those who were discouraged about this, I think it happens with our studies each time)
    The last lesson is always difficult because none of us are ready for it to end. I know some of the ladies who came are going through such trying situations. I felt like this study ministered to them in a special way. Some weren’t at liberty to talk about what’s going on in their lives.
    I loved the last lesson when Beth said for us to say, “I’m not stuck!” In the last session she tells that we are to take the next step with the next strength. (Psalm 84:1-7) strength to strength.
    My ladies are saying they can’t wait until fall to do another study. We’re praying about what to do next. Besides the wonderful teaching Beth delivers, it is such a special time for us girlfriends to spend together.
    God bless you all!

    Well, we were doing a repeat of To Live is Christ at our church. We had been through it before maybe 5ish yrs ago. It was my 1st Beth study.

    Originally I was slated to teach a missions class, Outside the Lines, to 3rd-5th graders for the Winter ’08 semester, but it was cancelled just a few weeks before we were to begin, leaving me free on Wednesday nights. Well, the Women’s Director swooped in ‘like a hawk’ HA! She had a facilitator for the Wed. Night Experiencing God, but she didn’t have a facilitator for To Live is Christ. How could I resist?! I loved that study, it was the first bible study I had done that I really felt like God was speaking TO me, personally!

    We had a really small group (9) to start with and it dwindled down to only 4 strong. I really wondered if I was doing something wrong but I/We persevered to the end. And one of the comments on the last night touched my heart in such a way. She said (loosely quoting):

    ‘You know I really did not care for Paul at all, before I did the study. I saw him as a cold, anti-women person. And now I have a whole new perspective I can see that he was gifted to be of a one track mind, determined to accomplish the goal…BUILD the church! He needed to keep order in the churches so that Christ would be lifted up in the towns/cities and the churches would grow.’

    I loved that, we all agreed with her comment and started talking about all the events that we had studied that supported her comment.

    Personally, I still am not sure why God had me do it a 2nd time. It was interesting to me that the last video lesson long ago was on Paul and his thorn and that was the lesson topic of Pre-Conference in Phoenix that I just attended a few months ago. Time to pull out notes from both and really study and seek God for a WORD!

    We start Stepping Up on April 16th. I can’t wait!

    Our semester is not quite over – 2 weeks left, but it’s been great. We’ve been doing the updated A Woman’s Heart God’s Dwelling Place. It was the perfect follow-up to The Patriarchs which we did last year.

    What’s so neat is how a light seems to go on for me when I read familiar passages now that are even remotely related to Moses and Aaron and the tabernacle. And of course, the trip to see the Tabernacle replica in Lancaster, PA, as I mentioned in a previous post, was a wonderful visual and compliment to the study. Very cool.

    His “Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” Thanks, Beth, for helping me find the light switch.

    We just finished up Psalms of Ascent and will be doing Wise Up in the summer. We went to see Beth in Jax and were so fired up we started a virtual Bible Book Club (something we’ve been wanting to do for a while). We are all read the NT together over 9 months. Since it is through a blog, others outside of our area can join us. Each area is going to try to get together once a month or so for dinner and discussion. Our blog is http://www.biblebookclub.blogspot.com if you want to check it out (or even join us)!

    Amanda: Love this blog post idea! “My ladies” finished STEPPING UP last week and it was marvelous! There were 62 of us in the group and we loved every minute together as sojourners on the journey.

    I am now leading some “young thangs” through “Women Making a Difference in Marriage.” I am very excited about that because I love mentoring and I love the 20-30 year old women so much – your age Amanda! They inspire me and I love to share with them lessons from my marriage and mothering! (And soon to be in August.. GRANDMOTHERING!!! It’s a BOY!)

    We love y’all,

    PS: We are going to do the revised version 🙂 of A Woman’s Heart after the marriage mentoring class. And I have pre-ordered Esther!!!

    I am currently leading Breaking Free in my church. Our format is a little different because we only have one hour each week. One week we discuss the homework, the following week we watch the video.

    We did week 5 homework review last week and it was intense! I pray that God worked mightily in the women who shared and in those that didn’t feel comfortable sharing anything. It has been an incredible study so far – hard at times, but so worth it!

    Thanks Beth for being such a willing and obedient vessel. We women at Hillside love you!

    We got a late start this semester so we’re 3/4 of the way through our study of A Women After God’s Own Heart. It’s been a wonderful time so far, God is showing up and opening eyes. I have lead a women’s study for the better part of 10 years and am seeing a number of women who have never done any type of study before have their eyes opened to God’s Word being practical and helpful in their lives. PTL!!

    PS I did Believeing God summer of 2006 and it changed my life. It’s been a crazy, unexpected ride since then and well, I still have my blue bracelet and today in my current situation I’m Believein’ God! Looking around at my life I know what God has said and I believe it and that makes it all, as we say ’round here: “good in the hood”

This time though we will share thoughts and discuss through blog during the week, or weeks, between sessions. Thank you for introducing me to this media.

    Dear Amanda and Siestas,

    I have read every comment so far and loved the way that women are studying God’s Word throughout the US. Our God is amazing, and the study of His word is truly contagious. Once you taste the truth, you want more!

    I am currently facilitating the Daniel study. We actually began last September and have done the video one week and discussion the next. It has been so neat, because we have been able to really take it all in, having more time to discuss the homework and then think about the video. We will be discussing Week 11’s homework on Monday and then we will watch the last video on the next Monday after a “salad potluck” (have to be ready for our swimsuits this summer- No Baptist potlucks to end this study!). We will hate to see this study end!

    We began with 26 women last fall, and praise the Lord, we still have 26 women! God is good:) I love our Bible Study because we have a woman in every age “decade” from 20 to 70… Oh how we learn from each other and our God!

    Throughout the past 8 months, we have learned so many things from Daniel. There are too many to count, but these are some things that I will never forget:

    1. Daniel didn’t live a life of integrity by accident- It is a deliberate choice that we make to resolve!
    2. We need to be culturally relevant without being spiritually irrelevant.
    3. There are 3 answers to any fire that you are going through: He will save you from it, save you through it, or deliver you into his arms because of it. What a wonderful reminder that has been to so many who are fighting terrible trials right now in our group.
    4. Humility is the key to godliness and puts us in a position to hear from the Lord.
    5. God’s word is amazing! He is faithful to what He says, and our history completely fulfills Daniel’s prophecy. Praise you Lord!

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your ministry. We love you and thank God for you!

    Our group of 8 just finished the Daniel study — wow!! I know my brain & my heart were both challenged and encouraged. We had some really great discussion. Before that, we did Beyond Yourself: the Fruits of the Spirit. It was life-changing as well. Keep ’em coming!!

    This semester I’ve had the privilege of leading Building A House of Prayer on Sundays and The Power of A Praying Wife on Tuesday mornings. It has been an absolute joy to lead both groups. Perhaps this summer, in honor of the tenth anniversary of my first in-depth Bible study (A Woman’s Heart, God’s Dwelling Place, A Study of the Old Testament Tabernacle)I’ll lead the updated version in my home. I am a living, breathing, having my very being in Christ, miracle; and blogging about leading Bible studies because a precious sister-in-Christ invited me to her home for that study. It will forever be a spiritual marker for me. I was in my late thirties and had already been a Christian most of my life, but I left that first night knowing I’d never be the same. I wanted to love the Word of God like that teacher loved the Word of God, and I wanted to love Jesus like she loved Jesus. It didn’t happen overnight. In the years that followed there were many in-depth studies by several teachers, but I have to say I cut my spiritual teeth on the studies God has given you to write, Beth. As has been said so often on this blog, thank you for your obedience. I’m part of the fruit that lasts, your legacy of faith. I don’t think my computer has enough memory to contain the God stops (Re: Believing God) from this past year alone. Please join me in giving praise to our Great God. Glory! He has radically transformed every part of me from the inside out. I don’t even look the same.
    Blessings to all of you, my dear sisters,

    My small group (for over the past 8 years), has one week left of “Living Beyond Yourself”. Prior to it we learn about “Who is the Holy Spirit?” so this BM was a nobrainer!!!! It has been great.
    I will give them this next semester without homework by teaching my own Bible Survey. This summer though we will all embark on “Stepping Up”. Feeling pretty special because we are “RALEIGH GIRLS”! 🙂

    We are almost to the end of “Becoming a Woman of Excellence” by Cynthia Heald. Last week we talked about having a meek and quiet spirit (I Peter 3: 3-4)”which is in the sight of God of great price.” I heard a radio program last week featuring a Christian lady who survived a concentration camp in Germany during WWII. She talked about only having the BARE neccessities….just enough to live. Not even what we would consider necessities…..no toilet paper (!!), no showers, no shampoo or toothpaste (or brush!). It made me start thinking….if all the things we depend on to enhance our womanly appearances were denied us…..would we still have enough inner beauty of the heart to make us attractive to others??
    This Bible study on “Excellence” has been such a help to me each week as I first study it and then as I teach it.

    God bless you all…..

    Stepping Up! I had written before that right as I finished this Bible Study (full of The Word), my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor. WELL…FULL of the Word we just finished the surgery: and five days later he is home resting. The Bible study totally paved the road for a faith walk during this journey. I’m in awe that God knew this was coming and made sure I was front and center during my church’s study. I bet so many other women have a similar testimony: they sign up for the studies and God does a work in their hearts to prepare them for something to come. He is faithful.Praise his name.

    I was a table group facilitator for Stepping Up (ended in March). The study was AMAZING and so timely. (I loved that some of us got to see Beth live up in Vancouver right toward the end of the study).

    Our table group was such an eclectic bunch. We had brand new mommies, new Christians and beautiful women in their late 60’s and 70’s. I absolutely loved seeing how God is so personally and intimately involved in every stage and season of our lives!

    We are starting A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place tomorrow and I am SO excited. This month long break has been too long! I miss you Beth!

    Thank you (all of you at LPM) again for your heart(s) for educating women and getting them excited about studying God’s Word.

    My sister and her small group of 30-somethings are doing “No Other Gods” by Kelly Minter. It is so good that they are spending two weeks on every session. Check it out. It is part of The Living Room Series.

    They will join us this summer for the “Stepping Up” study.

    I just finished Breaking Free! My friend and I did it together, she is in South Africa and I am here in the USA. I was blessed in so many ways! I love the practicality of the study. Life happens and I am so excited to know God is a God of the here and now in the midst of changing diapers and dealing with tantrums as well as a God involved in changing me for eternity.
    I already started Living Beyond Yourself, the online study. I have small children at home and tried various times to have a more traditional study with women at home but find it impossible to concentrate with two tots running around!!! The online studies work wonderfully! I can sit down and focus during their naptime!!
    I’ve noticed that the more time I spend in God’s Word the more questions I have. I hope that is a good thing??
    May God bless you for being a vessel willing to be used by Him. I pray that He will keep you close to Him and that you will remain close to Him.

    We just finished The Patriarchs study last night. I loved learning about the LORD and the men and women of Genesis time. I’m ever so mindful now of not wanting to manipulate situations as Rebekah once did. And I hope I can learn from my forefathers how dangerous it is to have favorites in the family. This study helped me see “the Patriarchs” as real people who were struggling with life and with their place with God. And now I just keep thinking about the end of the video, how this is not “it”. It’s those very special times with the Lord that give us a glimpse of true reality. God continues to renew my mind through these studies, and especially in helping me to know Him better. I’m so thankful that He has shown me how personal His word is for me. And I love how it all fits together. There’s no end to the wonder of God and His word!

    As I think about Beth writing these Bible Studies, I can see that it’s a passion for her, but it also takes a whole lot of obedience, diligence and hard work, and obiously a whole lot of love. Mostly love for the LORD, but also the way she thinks about our faces as she’s writing them. I’m overwhelmed with love for this very special lady who is so transparent as she reflects God’s lavish love for us. But I also know that she doesn’t want this kind of praise because she is living to give God the glory. So I give you the glory, Lord. Thank you for Your lavish love for us! And for giving us Beth Moore so we can catch the passion of knowing YOU! Glory to God!
