I’m excited to share my newest on-line study that starts this week and runs through December 4th!! Usually I will post my lesson on Wednesdays, but this week I’m posting today instead because I have a devotional running at Encouragement for Today taken from our new Encouragement for Today devotion book . If you are visiting us from my devotional, I am so excited you stopped by! And if you leave a comment today sharing a name of God you would like to learn more about, I will choose one comment to win a copy of our new devotional book.
Will you take a few minutes to learn more about our study? I hope you’ll join us. It’s a wonderful way to prepare our hearts for Christmas!
Below, please find a short video introduction from my heart sharing about the study, a description of the study and easy instructions on how to register.
Who is God and Why Should I Care?
Who: You and Your Friends
Do you find yourself saying you wish you had more knowledge about God and how to make Him a real part of your every day life? Do you wish you had more confidence in your faith? Would you like to join an amazing group of women for an incredible journey through God’s Word?
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, this invitation is for you!
What: On-Line Bible Study
Together, we’ll walk through stories in the Old and New Testament, answering two questions critical to the Christian faith:
Who Is God?
Why Should I Care?
Take your faith to deeper places and gain a confidence you have never had as you delve into the Old Testament names of God and learn how Jesus is the fulfillment of those names. We will study Elohim, El Roi, Jehovah-Nissi, Jehovah Rapha and one I will keep a surprise till the end.
When: Wednesdays from October 30th – December 4th
All lessons and homework will be posted on Wednesdays and will remain up all week. I encourage you to leave comments throughout the week. This is my favorite part of on-line studies…sharing our hearts, thoughts and prayers with each other…learning, growing and praying together.
Why: Understand Better the Nature and Attributes of God
The mission of my ministry is for women to know and understand God’s heart through His Word and to become deeply and intimately acquainted with God’s Word so that their hearts and lives may be transformed to be more like His.
Beginning with today’s introduction, we’ll meet here every Wednesday for a video lesson, a prayer and written homework. As always, there is no cost for the study. All you will need is an open heart, a Bible and a notebook or journal.

Below are some introductory questions to get us started. Please share your thoughts in the comments throughout the week.
1. Do you believe in God as your Creator and the Creator of our world? If not, or if you are uncertain, do you think about God and whether He exists or has a role in this world?
2. What is your image of God and what memories impact or shape that image?
3. Read Acts 17:24-27. How do the author’s words speak to the truth of God as Creator?
Prayer for us:
Oh, God, as we meet here for the next 5 weeks, I pray our time in Your Word will give us a fresh vision of Who You are…Your majesty and power…Your love and protection…Your faithfulness and goodness…Your eternal nature…Your splendor and Your glory. Many of us are familiar with the words and the names, but we want to really KNOW them and KNOW You deep within our spirits. We want to do more than read the words, Father, we want to study them, savor them, believe them, claim them, pray them and live confidently in them every single day!! We love You and thank You in advance for all You will do. We ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
So excited to meet you here next week! And don’t forget to leave a comment sharing a name of God you would like to learn more about for a chance to win a copy of our new Encouragement for Today devotional book.
