Thank you for stopping my my blog today. I know how precious your time is, and I am grateful to spend a few minutes with you. If you are visiting from my Proverbs 31 Devotion, The Bitter Root, welcome!
Writing devotions is hard because they require me to revisit times in my life I don’t like to remember…times where my words and actions did not reflect the godly character God asks of me. But devotion writing also encourages me because my devotions reveal times where God has clearly spoken into my life and taught me a spiritual truth or a powerful life lesson.
One week from today, we will begin an on-line study that has been life-changing for me during the preparation process. In some ways, it has been like writing one long devotion. Why? Because God has spoken into my life in such a fresh way. Researching and writing this study has transformed the way I read and respond to God’s Word.
Below you will find a 6 minute video sharing a bit more about the study and how to sign up.

Below please find a sneak peak at some of our memory verses for the study.
God speaks so that…
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the [woman] of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16
Pray so that…
“Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
Trials come so that…
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4
Live so that…
“You are the light of the world…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
As you pray about joining us, remember what God teaches us about His Word:
We do not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. Deuteronomy 8:3
His Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Psalm 119:9
His way is perfect; His Word is flawless. 2 Samuel 22:31, Proverbs 30:5
Though heaven and earth will pass away, His words will never pass away. Matthew 24:35
I am hoping you will join us!! Please share this study with your friends. It is great to do as a small group because you can watch the video on your own time and then gather together and spend your group time focusing solely on the lesson and homework questions.
Please don’t forget to leave a comment letting us know why you want to join us for the study. I will choose a few names to win a copy (pdf) of the full length curriculum I teach life here in Charlotte. I will announce the winners the first day of our study, November 13th.
If you have any questions, leave a comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
