If you are waiting on your book

Ladies, LifeWay has graciously provided us with access to the first week of homework for our No Other Gods study. So if you decided to join us at the last minute or if you are waiting for the book you ordered to be delivered, you will still be able to start the study on time. Week 1 will be available indefinitely, but this is the only week that will be made available.

Click here and scroll down to “Samples and Posters.” You will see links to the Intro and Session One. Print it off and you’ll be good to go!

Thank you Pam, Teresa, and the LifeWay Internet team! We appreciate you!

    This comment is for Stacy Harp. The LifeWay store on Northwest Expressway in Oklahoma City had the book. You might want to call first in case they have sold out since I bought mine. I haven’t been to Mardels lately but they carry all of Beth’s books so they might have this one too. We have several Mardels in OKC.

    Thank you Lifeway!
    I had ordered my book before I left for church camp for a week and when I got back the order had come in, but it was the book and not the workbook. 🙁
    I was about to think I was too overwhelmed with everything to participate and thought I’d be too far behind. I didn’t even have a group to do the study with.
    I decided to call the Lifeway store in Oklahoma City and the sweet guy on the phone (Jacob) told me they didn’t have any but he’d call some other stores for me.
    I hung on for quite a while while he took the time to check. He got back on the phone and apologized for taking so long, but had located one in Lubbock, Texas. It should be in OKC in a day or two. What a sweet young man to take the time to be so helpful.
    Then I saw that one of my sweet blogging friends has a group she’s doing the study with and they accepted me into their group.
    I’m so excited to get started and so thankful this has worked out.
    I printed off session one and am ready to begin!

    I am still trying to recoop from youth camp. My brain isn’t working right. 🙁
    Do I still need to sign up even if I am in a group and they have my info.?
    If so, I’m Valerie from Oklahoma!
    I just don’t want to miss out on anything.

    Hi beth,
    This is the 3rd time I’m trying to send you a message. Hopefully this one will go through…..

    Happy Belated birthday!!

    So sorry about your dogs. We have a 1 yr old Schnauzer/dachshund mix who rules the house. I told my husband that if anything happens to her I’ll be at the shelter the next day for a new puppy!!!

    I pulled up in my driveway yesterday after work and there was my book!! God is so good to supply our needs. I wanted to ask for prayer as I am doing this study by myself and find myself drifting away from praying and worshipping God. I need to find a new church home but it is easier to stay in bed than to go. My husband no longer goes with me and I am often torn on going by myself or being with him. I find myself longing for the closeness I once had with Jesus. Please pray for me. All of you brightenmy day. Beth, I simply adore you! For some reason the video ended before you talked about your cute flip flops.
    Sorry this is so long, I am really going to try to stay with this study and get close to my Lord again.

    Awesome LifeWay! Thanks! LifeSong was sold out. HEY QUARRYVILLE! I KNOW YOU’RE OUT THERE! Girls, contact me if you are doing a small group–you know who I am (the email address is so obvious isn’t it? : )) Pray for me. My biggest obstacle is physical stamina. It seems all I have energy for is going to work! HAPPY BIRTHDAY “BETHIE” (I love nicknames)and thank you for Living Proof Ministries! The video is a hit girl!

    I started the Bible Study last night (all by myself). I really loved the intro and have started the first lesson. I will have to admit that it has already “stepped on my toes”.
    I am going to try and get a couple of my friends to join me & hoping that they will. I would be happy for some of you bloggers would join me. If not I am going to join Beth’s group there at LPM.

    Blessings to all,

    When I first ordered the book, I mistakenly ordered the book by David Cook publishing instead of the Lifeway workbook. I received those quicky enough to realize my mistake and so I had ordered my workbooks a few weeks ago from a local bookstore. They had told me that the supplier had 3 copies left of the workbook, which was absolutely WONDERFUL as I only needed 2 copies. They were supposed to arrive yesterday, the 17th. I didn’t get a phonecall during the day, and I was a little excited, so I called them and asked if they had arrived. They forgot to order the books for me. I am so disappointed right now.

    I am thrilled that lifeway is letting us have the first weeks lessons, but I don’t know how long it would take to get the workbooks to me now.

    Cathy says:

    That’s welcome news. I just decided to start this study and ordered it on-line. I’m doing it alone. I’m just finshing up leading a study at church by my very favorite Bible study author ;), and while I loved the study, leading the group was not a good experience. I’m still not sure if I misunderstood and God really didn’t want me to be leading it or if Satan just decided to hit me hard, but I really dreaded going each time and had to deal with some nastiness that I can’t seem to get over. I think I need some time alone with God to try to sort it out. I’m looking for all the help and wisdom I can get out of this study. Thanks Beth. Thanks Lifeway!

    I did not order the book as I have some Bible Study stuff already, but I downloaded the chapter and wow it looks great. It sounds like Lifeway is having a hard time filling orders so I may wait to get mine, but I will definiting do it at a future date. Thanks for the recipes. Shalom

    I am having difficulty printing the session one. I went to the local Christian bookstore today and they only had the book. I will order the workbook online tonight. Has anyone else had a problem printing? I can print (and I do ) anything else..so just wondering.

    Hi Siestas,

    This is completely OT but I wanted to post it before any more time goes by.

    I have a ticket to Deeper Still in Atlanta next weekend (June 27-28), and I won’t be able to go. Is there anyone out there that would like to have the ticket? It’s free!

    I also have a hotel reservation; if you want the ticket, I could try to see if the hotel would let you have my room.

    If you’re interested, please e-mail me at [email protected]

    Thanks Beth and Lifeway;

    I had been sitting on the fence about this study. When my local Lifeway store said they were out-of-stock, I said, OK God, I’m not going to do it (because I knew shipping would delay the process). Now, after reading this post, I ordered it for me and my daughter.

    Thanks so much! I had decided I wasn’t going to be able to do the study because my Lifeway store has told me they don’t have not idea when they will get the book. I can at least cover week 1. Thanks again.

    Andrea says:

    Thanks so much to all of you for making this available to us. I was looking for a bible study to do this summer for our church. I had already decided we’d meet twice a month but still had know idea what God wanted us to do. Then I decided to catch up on the LPM blog and there was our summer study waiting. I still wasn’t sure if I could pull it off in time, but there you all were, so clever to help all of us last minute siestas. BUT I still didn’t think we could do it in time, THEN a Lifeway representative called me to see if I needed any help with our fall study planning. OK I got the message now. Organize the study and they will come. I’m glad God doesn’t give up us 🙂

    Hey Beth & Living Proof team! I’m not sure if this is the correct place (entry) to check in at, but I wanted to let you know that Mt. Carmel Baptist in Cincinnati, OH is checking-in for the Siesta Summer Bible study. We’re a little late getting the word out there, but sent word out to approx 60 siestas to join in. Still waiting to hear from everyone and get a final count, but we’re in! Thanks so much for doing this. This has God’s hands all over it!

    Oh….Thank you Lifeway for providing the 1st week online!!!

    There aren’t anymore online at Lifeway 🙁 Is there anywhere else we can get the book? Is there any proposal to sell an ebook version that we can pay for it online and download it? I’m loving this study thus far! It’s such an amazing experience to do it with so many wonderful women!

    I ordered mine last week, yet even the warehouse is out. This is due to unexpected need/demand of this book. I now will not receive mine untill the end of the 1st or 2nd week in July! What do I do??? Will lifeway provide the second week as well, I’m assuming I’m not the only one with this wait!
