Announcing Siesta Summer Bible Study 2013

Hey friends! Just a quick update! We’re getting a lot of questions in the comments about logistics of how everything works like how the video driven study works, where you can purchase the videos, how much they’ll be, if you need to to the study alone or in a group, how to purchase the book and etc. Be looking for a post soon on each of those details! I promise we’ll do our best not to lead you astray. In the meantime, purchasing your workbook is top priority! You can find a link to the LifeWay website right below the video. Until further notice, I hope that helps! We’re so grateful you’re excited! And we’re excited, too!

    Can’t wait! I am in NEED of God’s distraction from the chaos of this world! Thank You! Beth I have to tell you, I watched you on Life Today yesterday and cried through the whole thing. God really let me know He is with me as yesterday one of my worst fears DID come true!! But I am getting back up and going to have Joy in the midst of the circumstances!! Please pray for my first born adult son!! He NEEDS to find his way back to God. And I am counting on God’s promise that when I train up a child in His ways that he will NOT go his own way!!! Trusting God to take care of my boy and draw him back to Himself!!! Thank you for all you do for us!! I am keeping the Faith with your help and WITH God!

      I have an adult son I am praying for as well, so let us pray together for our sons, who were raised with the truth, to hear the Lord’s call to come home!

      Chelle says:

      I’m right there with you, it was the second time I’ve seen that episode which is odd because they usually don’t repeat on this station, I took it that The Lord really wanted me to listen. I found myself face down on the floor and I’m fearful that I’m facing my own worst “If—— Then—-“. I trust He is and will be picking me up and carrying me. He is my everything. You and your son are in my prayers Colette, continually.

      • colette says:

        Thank you so much Chelle!!! I am praying for you too!! I love my Siesta Prayer Warriors!!! We will win the battle!! Fighting the good fight of Faith with Jesus on our side!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yay, so glad the bible study is happening this year. Totally was not expecting it. We are not doing a bible study at church this summer, so this will be perfect.

    Terry says:

    Hi, Beth! Thank you for hosting summer Bible study again! I just e-mailed a friend to see if she’s interested in getting a small group together, but if that doesn’t work out, I’ll definitely do the study on my own.
    I am also a participant in SSMT for the 3rd time. THANK YOU for equipping us to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and our minds in the Word in every season!!!

    Siestas! Are there any of you in the Northern Virginia (Fort Belvoir) area who would like to get together and do this study this summer? I’ll host and cook!

    PS – The Lord brought you to mind again today, Beth – praying for a strong finish over there in TN!

    Jennifer T says:

    So excited for Siestas doing this study! Funny thing is that it seems I’m going to be hosting James instead. It went from me needing/wanting to do that (even solo) to inviting two ladies, to them having THREE mom&daughter teams wanting to join in. The daughters are in their teens or twenties. I’m intimidated, excited, blown away. James will be hard enough for me alone… you know He is in this if all these folks come. ANYWAY, praying for all you Siestas and the joy and revelation Priscilla’s study will bring! Go Jesus! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Alisa VanZ says:

    How do you join the study? Will that come later? Is there a fee? I’m new here (OBVIOUS?!?!) and would love to do a study over the summer with Beth! Thank you for any help! I appreciate it!

      Just hang here, Alisa, and you will learn everything you need about how to participate. Welcome!!

    Cecilia says:

    I am like so thrilled.

    Can’t wait for this to start. I did the Ruth and Nehemiah with you guys and it blessed me tremendously. I will be studying alone but I want be alone because I know you “summer sisters” will be with me in spirit.

    Love to you all.

    Janice says:

    Thank you Beth for leading us in the study of God’s Word. I truly need it. I already have a Gideon workbook as I was planning to do this one on my own. Now I will be doing it with the Siestas. So excited. Should we go ahead and complete the first week by 6/11? My Vimeo was cutting out.

    Praying for you Siesta Mama as you conclude the tapping of Children of the Day.
    Love you!

    Wow! What a surprise! I was not expecting a Bible study in additon to scripture memory verses. What a treat! Last year was my 1st Siesta Bible study with Beth, and it was awesome! This is my 1st year doing the scripture memory verses, which has been a challenge. So what fun to get to do a Bible study too. I am glad Beth, that we siestas encourage you, because you give me so much encouragement! Thank you! I will be seeing you in November at LPL in Daytona Beach!

    EEeeee! Super excited! I wasn’t expecting summer bible study this year at all b/c of SSMT so I am doubly stoked! Can’t wait to dig into Gideon.

    Diana Sumrall says:

    Wow this is such a relief and came on the perfect day. I found out on Sunday we would have NO small group bible study at church over the summer. I just finished Jesus The One And Only yesterday and was floundering this morning about what to do for the summer. GOD is sooo good!
    Thank you!

    Kelli says:

    2 questions ๐Ÿ™‚
    1. Ms. Beth mentioned there will be links to Ms. Priscilla’s videos to download for our summer study. Normally I know these videos are $5 a session. Will there be this added cost through the summer?
    2. Is this study good for a couples small group or is it more geared towards women?

    Thanks so much. Looking foward to this so much!

    • 28.1
      Lindsee says:

      Hi Kelli, I think the videos will be $5 a session. As far as who to do the study with, that is totally up to you. I’ve not done it yet so while it’s written for women, I wouldn’t doubt that couples would benefit from it as well, but that’s your call! I hope that helps. Blessings!

      • Janet Parr says:

        So the cost will be workbook plus $5 for each video? How much would total be then for the whole study? I attend Beth’s fall studies she does with her “home girls” as she calls us at Houston’s First Baptist Church, and am really interested in doing this one too, but am new to this site and style of Bible study, so am a little unsure about how this will all work…:)

        • Lindsee says:

          Hey Janet, each of the sessions are $5, and their are six sessions total, so that would be $30, plus the cost of the book which is $15, so that would be $45 all together. However, if you do the sessions with a small group, I would assume you could split the cost. I hope that helps! We’ll give out more detailed info the closer it gets, for now, getting your workbook is first step! Blessings!

    Susan Hale says:

    I am so excited! I was not aware that Beth did a summer bible study. Would you provide some more general details for us who are not familiar, such as time of day, cost, etc?

    Thanks so much! What a blessing it will be!

    • 29.1
      Lindsee says:

      Susan! All the details are coming in a later post. For now, you can just pick up your workbook! Hope that helps!

    Gideon will be my summer study, for sure!
    I’m SO looking forward to it (I’ve not participated in a Siesta summer study before).

    Prayers and blessings to you, Beth, as you finish up the taping of “Children of the Day” <3

    Jodi lee Kaemingk says:

    My shipping cost to sent it to where I am in Yellowknife, NT, Canada is over $62, is there another way you recommend that I order the book? Even if you send it the slowest possible way, I don’t mind. I just don’t think I can pay that much for shipping. ๐Ÿ™‚ Blessings to you all and thanks for doing this great work. Praying for Beth as she speaks this week, may God grant her perseverance to finish well! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Have u checked Christian book distributors.

      • Jodi lee Kaemingk says:

        Oh bummer it’s not offered on Disappointed, but I hope you all enjoy it. God bless your study together. Catch you all next time! ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Tamara says:

          I’m also in Canada, although a little further south than you. Is there a bookstore nearby that could order the book for you? That might be a little cheaper. I usually do that for ordering books for these because getting Lifeway to ship across the border is expensive.

          A Christian bookstore should be able to. But I’ve also ordered Christian books from other bookstores and had no problem getting it. Might be an option to look into for you.

    So happy to see there is a summer bible study being offered…with that being said please let me know if there are any “scholarships for a workbook” I have been declared “disabled” and have no income for extras…I’d appreciate any response…if not possible I’ll take prayers, never can go wrong with that, right?? Thank you

    Pat says:

    Yeah! I am in! So excited to do another summer study that I can be committed to, and yet do it “solo”. I may be in transition this summer with a relocation to another state. This study allows me to stay in the Word wherever I am!!

    I LOVE that this can all be done/watched online! I not only will get to go through it with friends from all over the US & Africa, but will be able to log on and watch while working in Kenya this summer. I might even get the Kenyans to join!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! So stoked!

    How exciting that our summer Bible study is Priscilla’s Gideon. We were just discussing our next summer Bible study at the Women’s Bible Study cafรฉ, which we always do with Beth in the summer, and we were praying Beth would be announcing Gideon. It was meant to be!! Thank you Beth, you are such a blessing to us!! We love you!!
