  3. Oh Wendy!
    I am dancing on the mountaintop as Living So That gets into women’s hands. This truly IS a party! Your questions made me laugh. I have two pairs of shoes besides my workout shoes. So my answer is pair number one.
    Heavenly Father,
    Thank You for this party and for inviting each of us. Will You speak into our hearts… the deepest parts that need healing… the parts we’ve wanted to keep from You… and bring us healing? You have come SO THAT the captives would be freed. Break every chain in these messy lives. Let us hold tightly to You as we live the SO THAT lives You died to give us. Bless Wendy and each woman You have called to read this precious study in Eph. 3:20 ways! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
    Sending you so much love as I party with you!

      To Noelle
      Thank you for the prayer. The words you spoke in this prayer truly touched my heart and blessed me.
      My God continue to use you to be a blessing to others.

    • I’m not surprised about your shoe answer! :)

      Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this beautiful prayer for us! So excited about what God will do in our midst!

      love you,

      me

  4. Laura D. says:

    Wendy, I love your questions, they put a smile on my face! I have to answer my favorite book of the Bible. I love Psalms! Although I do love many of the books, the Psalms have been really speaking to me lately – they start out all gloom and doom and depressed and then Jesus breathes life and love into the Psalmist and it ends in worship. My favorite place to grab dinner with family and friends is at home, to a home cooked meal covered in love! I am excited that the Lord is working in and through you to touch many lives! I pray you continue to listen to Him and let Him work through you! Thanks for your hard work!

    • Laura, I love that your favorite place to cook is at home!! How awesome is that. I want live with you…and I’m sure my family would to!!

      Blessings,

      wendy

  5. Christine says:

    I’m looking forward to doing this study with you. To see what God is going to teach me from it. As far as your questions, my favorite shoe- Dansko clogs, favorite tv show is probably Blue bloods & my favorite place to eat is P & H diner.

    • Blue Bloods is in my top three for sure. Have always loved “Magnum.” Watch reruns and own all seasons of Magnum PI. :)

  6. maureen wright says:

    So excited to get back to an OBS. “in a messy life” were the words that caught my attention. Who doesn’t have one of those at one time or another. It is staying strong and relying on GOD’s WORD and PROMISES that carry us through. I love these questions because they are personable.
    My favorite book of the Bible began as Joshua but I am becoming more in LOVE with Psalms. My favorite shoe…Tennis shoes…Comfort is important after being on my feet for 16 hours a day at times. Castle…I enjoy some mystery, and comedy and mindless tv at times. there is a little place called ZAZAs in Conway and Little Rock AR that services great salad and pizza. YUM YUM! Atmosphere is very kicked back but comfy. But since I live far in the country and don’t make it there often it is in our kitchen cooking with family and friends like my new OBS friend Laura says…COVERED in LOVE. My favorite movie is???? The one that comes to mind is Steel Magnolias. Only cause I watched this one more than twice all the way through…Still Laughed and cried. Not much of a repeat movie goer or watcher. Looking forward to this study praying GOD breathes his WORD and PROMISES in to this study so that all may become stronger in a “messy life.”

    • What a great prayer!! I’ve never seen Castle, but I love mysteries.
      And I really love Laura’s words “COVERED in LOVE.” Thanks for sharing.

      Blessings,

      wendy

  7. Jenny P. says:

    I jumped on my computer this morning in search for an online bible study, craving the word. My search ended up here! I am so excited about this opportunity! I will absolutely be joining in the P31 online bible study. I just moved 7 hours away from my church. The “family” that has been there for me for the past 8 years. Now as I am getting settled and finding my roots in this new place I need to do a study on my own and what better one than this! Thank you for the invitation!
    Answers to the 5 fun questions: My favorite book of the Bible is proverbs :) I absolutely love flip flops, might possibly have an addiction there. Favorite television show would be Parenthood. Favorite place to grab dinner is…….not sure! I guess anywhere I am surrounded by love. It’s not so much the food I am eating but the company I am in. Favorite movie would have to be dirty dancing.

    • It’s wonderful to see how God provided this study at the perfect time for you!! Love stories like that!

      And what will be such a blessing for you is the fellowship and fun you will find interacting with all these women!!

      Blessings,

      wendy

  8. Jennifer says:

    I’m so excited to begin another Bible Study with you, Wendy! I’ve participated in a few of your online studies before and I always finds them to be enlightening. I don’t know if have a favorite, but I love history, and recently finished a study on the book of Acts. I found so many interesting things in that book about the history of the Church and the Christian life in general. My favorite pair of shoes are my sneakers. I love going to Applebee’s for appetizers with friends and family. And I’d have to say my favorite or one of my favorite movies Ever is Braveheart. It’s historical, but also dramatic with a message. I watch television, but I haven’t really been an avid watcher lately. I’m more of a reader. I’ve become a little more selective in what I read lately because of my studies of the Bible.

    Looking forward to April 6th!

  9. Congrats on the book! I’m looking forward to doing this study.

    My favorite movie ever is Princess Bride.

  10. Hello,
    I’m looking forward to this Bible study. The last study I did with you was the book of Hebrews. I loved it.

    My favorite shoe would have to be anything made by jambu. Their shoes are super comfortable and somewhat cute ;).

  11. Sandee Willshaw says:

    Thank you, Wendy, for this exciting opportunity — to read your book and to learn/share with other women. I am excited about learning how I can better reach out to family and friends and have them drawn to the light of Christ in me. I have purchased the book – and it is likely in the pile that you photographed!!! It’s on its way to me now! whooohoooo. I will sign up asap for the on-line Bible study (I checked today March 10, but it wasn’t “up” yet). I will keep checking. As for your interesting questions —- my favourite place to dine with family and friends??? MY HOUSE!!! I love to entertain and prepare fun/gourmet meals. I enjoy serving others in any way that I can, and this is one area that I do so very much enjoy. Round-table discussions over a meal usually lead to VERY long and engaging conversations! Looking forward to the on-line Bible study AND receiving my copy of the book. Thanks again for all that you do for your brethren.

    • Makes me wish I was one of your friends so I could join you at your house for a great meal and a round table discussion. :)

  15. Wendy Fischer says:

    I love a woman who asks about shoes! My favorite is a pair of lime green, mock croc, slingback, kitten heels. I’ve about worn them out!

  16. Orenda Smith says:

    My favorite book of the Bible would have to be Proverbs. My favorite shoe is my sandals :) I wear them 24-7 no matter what the weather is :) I can not wait to start this study :) God Bless

  17. Congratulations on another wonderful publication! Great questions…My favorite book in the Bible, I would have to say are both Psalms and Ecclesiastes. Any time I need inspiration or guidance they pick me up. As for my favorite shoe, anything by Jimmy Choo is fabulous! My favorite television show – well, as a family we gave up television for Lent last year and never reconnected it, so when we had it, I enjoyed “The Good Wife”. My favorite place for dining with friends and family is the Cheesecake Factory – fun atmosphere and delectable dishes. As for my all-time favorite movie…What Dreams May Come. Blessings to you.

    • We have the same taste! I love my Jimmy Choo sunglasses. :)

      And we have a Cheesecake factory right by our house. My favorite is the lettuce wraps. Delicious!

  18. Kristin C. says:

    What a beautiful way to start this LORD’s day! I just finished reading your free sample of “Living So That…” WOW! I am amazed at how He can reveal mammoth Truths to us if we simply allow Him the time to work on our hearts! Praise Him!

    I’ve just been released from a season of intercession for our church (I’m a pastor’s wife) — of which the LORD had me pretty much solely in the Old Testament–oh my, it was RICH!! I have been awaiting His leading to take me deeper into study of Jesus–and this study/book has definitely awakened my appetite!

    We were blessed a few months ago with the beautiful addition of our son by a *surprise* (to us, not to Him!) adoption. We adopted our daughter several years ago internationally which was 16 mons of prayer/prep/patience. With our son, however, He only gave us 7 weeks before his birth to join Him in His plan! With our newborn, my “still” time before the LORD has been greatly changed. How I long to spend hours with Him consuming His Word each morning like before, but burp rags, bottles and a precious boy now fill my arms. I have been keenly aware that this is a season of “rocking” and resting–a forced one, albeit! He knows best…and I look forward to knowing Him in a different rhythm day-to-day.

    All of that to say, this study greatly intrigues my heart and I will be in prayer about doing it. Will pray for the women you will be leading/guiding no matter what.

    Oh, and I can’t pick just one book but love the many promises He gives in Zechariah and Ezekiel — and Jeremiah has really been a hero of faith that has expressed some of my deepest pangs this past season. So, those three, for the time being are my faves!

    Many rich blessings to you and yours!

    • Kristin, thank you for sharing so much of your story with us. God has you on a new journey, and the heart with which you have joined His plan encourages and inspires me! What a gift you are to the women of your church.

      We would love to have you join us, but if not, thank you for your prayers. Praying now for the Lord to richly bless this new stage of your life.

      Blessings,

      Wendy

It is by His grace that we all can be redeemed and begin a new life! Your encouraging words of being worthy is what so many women need to hear and be reminded of.

  47. Debbie Stark says:

    I am looking forward to the study – have never done one like this online. I think this is perfect timing for me as I’ve been asking God to help me trust Him more and asking Him to show me what He wants me to do with my life. I know it all involves trusting Him, but how to move forward and to do what??.
    Loved your devotional today – spoke to my heart as I went away from the Lord for a time and have been back and need to trust Him for His worthiness.
    Hard to say what book of the Bible is my favorite – love the Psalms, since David went through so many trials, disobedience, etc. and yet in Hebrews it says he is a man after God’s own heart – WOW, I just love seeing God’s grace, compassion and love for him and us. Have been reading through all of the gospels lately and just love to read of Jesus too.
    Thanks to you and all the women who share e-devotions with us – they make my day.
    I love to read so would love to win something:).

    • Debbie, I’m excited this is your first online study. You will love it!! Melissa leads us well and is so much fun!!

      Blessings,

      wendy

  73. Wendy, thank you and praise be to God! I usually read my daily devotions at night, so this morning when I came to my desk, gasping for a breath and trying to find my way back, I told God that today I had to read my devotion first, before I could do anything else. I asked Him to PLEASE send me encouragement for coping with the anxiety, doubt, and fear that I have been harboring all weekend. At the top of my inbox was an email with the subject: “You Are Worthy.” You see, my husband and I, along with God’s guidance, have been raising our five children for twenty years now. One of our children requires very special care and love. We have always felt Blessed that God chose us to be the parents of such a precious angel and we have always given our best to fulfill God’s purpose for each of us on this journey. The details of how I got to this dark point during this past week are not important, but what I do find interesting (or maybe it’s just God’s sense of humor) is that the people making me doubt my worth as I spoke the truth, were attorneys. Your devotion today helped me to realize that the truth I spoke is worthy. God chose me to be the mother of my child, He knew I was worthy of such a precious gift. God was listening to my cries this past weekend and he chose you and your words of encouragement to breath life back into my soul. I know the months ahead of me are going to be difficult and no matter the outcome, only God can heal the wounds of my child.
    When people ask me how I manage all that I do, to God’s glory I reply: “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
    My favorite shoe is my slippers and my favorite movie is It’s a Wonderful Life…Just ordered my book and looking forward to this study!!

    • What a beautiful story! Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. I’m honored the Lord used the devotional He laid on my heart to speak into your heart. I prayed for God to draw every woman who needed to hear these words from Him…and you are an answer to my prayer. LOVE THAT about God!!!

      Blessings,

      w

  92. Dorothy Ramos says:

    Steel Magnolias!!! My favorite movie! It reminds me of how my sisters and I are with each other. Each one represents one character in the movie. Funny enough Drum I compare to my brother. He is just as funny as he is and is always picking on Weeza. The characters represent each of us in one way or another…I can watch it over and over again and it will make me laugh, cry, and laugh again. It just never gets old for me. My mother, when she was alive, laughed so hard she used to pee her pants when we all got together and started to role play the movie. Poor Weeza always got it good…lol. :)

    I watch it now…with love, pain (as I watch the eagerness of M’Lynn trying to get her daughter to respond and then never leaving her side when her daughter finally passed…The best quote I got from the movie…

    “I realized as I woman how lucky I am. I was there when that wonderful creature drifted into my life and I was there when she drifted out. It was the most precious moment of my life.” ~ Robert Harling

    I think of that quote and think of my mom and say…As a daughter I realized how lucky I am…She was there when I drifted into her life….and I was there when she drifted out. It truly was the most precious moment in my life that I will never, ever forget.

    That’s my favorite movie. Had to share.

    • Oh, I just had to comment on your post, Dorothy! That movie gets me every time I watch it – need a box of kleenex – but LOTS of laughs, too. It makes you so grateful for your true friends. Peace to you!

    • What a beautiful tribute to the movie and your mom. Thank you!

I am well into Part Three and then I will begin the 5 day devotionals. I await April 6 with great anticipation, hope and excitement!

But I’d like to share the verse that was planted on my heart in 3rd grade. Psalms 56:11 “In God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid, for what can man do unto me?”

  135. My favorite book of the Bible is Romans. I am reminded constantly when I read through that book how much God loves me and what He did for me by sacrificing his son. I have this crazy, funky pair of shoes that are tennis shoes/sandals. They look like tennis shoes but there is no back, they are perfect to throw on when I am running out the door. My favorite television show at the moment is Lost. My husband and I just started watching it together a few weeks ago, we are far behind. I love to go eat at this little place here in Cody, WY called Zapata’s. It serves the best Mexican food. My seven year old twins love it too! My favorite movie ever is Pitch Perfect. It makes me laugh, I think mostly because a 6 foot 4 former Navy man is the one who told me that I absolutely had to watch it. :) I would love to join the online Bible study. I have a part time job, am a full time college student, and mother to three daughters… so I will see if I can make the time for it. Thank you for leading this study… I’m sure it will be fun!

  150. Such fun questions! =-) My favorite book of the Bible has long been Philippians, but after spending a year in the Old Testament, I’ve come to appreciate Isaiah and so much of the great things in it. My favorite shoe? I have to be honest… I’m pretty anti-shoes. My favorite shoes are the ones that I can leave, so I can walk around barefoot. Ha ha! As far as TV goes, I don’t watch much on TV unless it’s kid related… but I do watch the episodes of Downton Abbey online. I love anything and everything historical, but while there’s a lot that’s not so great about DA, I appreciate that it’s very much like real life… and it shows even the stuff that we might wish could be hidden. A great reminder that even things done “in secret” will be made public someday – in our lives too. Can’t wait to start this study with OBS!

    I’m just going to answer one question for now, and that would be my favorite book of the Bible (So hard, haha). I am going to say Ezekiel, because I still remember how it used to be one of the hardest books for me to get through when I was younger, yet God has often used THAT book to speak beautiful promises of restoration to my heart during this long season of brokenness that myself and my family are facing – a great example of how His word truly is alive and active! I love that, and I am so thankful!

  182. Brenda Hall says:

    Hi Wendy! Thank you so much for this opoprtunity! I have signed up fopr the 5 day devotional and the online study with Proverbs 31.
    I would have to say my favorite book of the bible is Proverbs. It is the first book I read. it is the book that appealed to me when I was younger. My favorite shoe would be my UGGS! Favorite Show: Dancing with the Stars, Favorite Place for dinner: Outback Steakhouse, Best Movie Ever: I love GREASE!

  183. Favorite book in the Bible: Psalms, Favorite Shoe: Skechers; Favorite TV show: The Waltons;
    Favorite place to eat: Cheddars; Favorite Move: Sound of Music

    I am so excited about the Bible Study. Several years ago I bought Hidden Joy and read it while I was on vacation. I had experienced a broken heart of betrayal and rejection by my husband, and I was in desperate need of healing. The LORD used your book to begin the process of healing in me. I have participated in the online Bible studies and I am always blessed. Thank you for your transparency and love for others that ministers to the broken vessels and brings beauty out of the brokenness.

  184. I don’t have many “favorite things” and my current “favorite” is often changing, however, I can currently say without-a-doubt that my favorite TV show is The Andy Griffith Show. I found it a few weeks ago on Netflix and watch at least one episode about every day now. So funny! And a show I can freely watch with my 6 and 3 year olds around without a worry about what they will hear or see! Now that is rare to find in a TV program these days.

    I have signed up for the five day devotion and the bible study – very excited to begin :)

  185. Wow so many things to choose from, I’m coming over from the P31 Study. I can’t wait to begin the bible study on the 6th of April. It’s my sister’s birthday, so that’s two things I get to celebrate and enjoy. I was able to do the five day devotions and i absolutely loved them all. My favorite television show is Criminal minds, and Law and Order SVU, the original, Criminal Intent, I love them all. It gives you knowledge on how people think and react and how sin has really plagued this world. This are the sick twisted things that Jesus died on the cross for and once we ask for forgiveness we will receive it. I look forward to winning a faith filled life SO THAT I can give God all the Glory and Honor.

  186. Hi Wendy,
    I am so excited to take the study with Proverbs 31 OBS. I took part in the study you did on this and just can’t wait for more. I have at least 2 friends that have also signed up for the study. My favorite book of the Bible is Psalm and Philippians. It is really hard to pick my favorite book. My favorite shoe is Ryka. I don’t watch much TV or very many movies.

    Blessings,
    Linda

    Your first book changed my life and I refer back to it all the time. I cannot wait to start this one.

    • What a blessing to read your comment. Your words are truly an answer to the prayers I prayed so many years ago as I wrote each chapter. And they truly are a testimony to God’s promise in Romans 8:28 that He works ALL things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. Thank you for taking time to share this with me!

      And I’m so excited you are joining us for this study.

      Blessings,

      Wendy

  201. 1) your favorite book of the Bible – Psalms or Proverbs (hard one to decide) Depending upon what I am going through in my life it changes so often, or I find complimentary verses in others books that draw me to look closer at those … I long to be a self-feeder as Lysa TerKerst describes in Becoming More Than a Bible Study Girl

  203. Deborah Rogers says:

    My favorite movie EVER is Sound of Music! I used to watch it when I was a little girl. I even would rent the movie soundtrack album (yes…album – that tells you how many years ago it was!) from the library and learn all of the songs. I was blessed to be able to visit Austria in 2004 when my son, who was 14 at the time, traveled there to sing with the Chorale Ambassadors of Western Kentucky. We visited all of the places where Maria and her family sang! That movie continues to cheer me whenever I watch it. Thanks Wendy for everything you do for us and for The Lord! I am excited to start our new Proverbs 31 study together.

  204. Aww, Michelle, you are most welcome. There are times in our lives when we feel it just can’t get any worse, and those are the times , i have learned the hard way, we need to lean on God most. A friend introduced me to the God Box recently. It is changing the way I view my relationship with Him as well as trials in my life. I will pray that these trials be short for you and that you gain any insights you may need. – Kristin

    • Danene Johnson says:

      Kristin – What is the God Box? :-) I am sure many people could benefit from it, we all have trials and who wouldn’t want to become closer to Him? :-)
      Thanks for sharing…

      • Hi Dianne,

        I actually wrote a post about it on my blog, http://seetheshinebetheshine.wordpress.com.( it’s entitled “A Season of Release. ” A very wise friend introduced it to me. All it is , is a box or jar ( I decorated one) in which you write your worries, fears, insecurities, hopes, dreams, gratitude lists, and whatever else you want to place in God’s hands. The physical act of writing them down, folding the paper and placing it in the God jar/Box is very cathartic. It is a way to help our minds and bodies associate release and calm by turning our lives over to God. That’s what I’ve been doing to help me- I hope it helps anyone else who reads about it and puts it into practice in her/his own life. God’s Peace to you!

  210. My favorite “shoe” is a pair of cowboy boots I got when my husband and I were visiting Colorado. I don’t get to wear them too much in Illinois, but boy every chance I get they are on my feet!

    I am visiting from Proverbs 31 OBS and look forward to this next study. I’m signing up today and have signed up for the free 5 day devotional. Thanks for offering this Wendy! I look forward to reading your book and going through the next study with you.

  211. Robyn Seamon says:

    There are so many good books in the Bible that it is hard to pick one! I guess if I had to it would be Psalms because I find so much comfort there.
    My favorite shoes are Naots. I have never been a fashionista, but I absolutely love Naots and want one of every design, haha! They are so comfortable and it warms my heart to know they are made in Israel.
    Hmmm, I am feeling very indecisive as I answer these questions. We record all the shows we watch and watch at our convenience. We have watched almost every Bones and it was my favorite a few years ago. I am thinking Blue Bloods may be my new favorite.
    Same with movies. I really like Shall We Dance?
    My favorite place to eat is my deck during spring, summer and fall!
    I am planning on doing this Bible Study and it would be such a blessing if I won the book!

  212. My favorite book of the Bible is Ruth
    Barefoot :)
    Favorite movie: 50 First Dates
    I am joining this Bible study :). As It is coming at a much needed time.

  213. bJoy in CA says:

    Hi Dear Wendy!

    I pray and ask that God might bless me with one copy of the entire Inscribed Collection. How AWESOME would that be! Thanks for the opportunity to ask Him in prayer for such a blessing!

    1) I LIVE in the powerful encouragement found in The Book of Psalms, my most favorite book of the Bible! (Through hardest trials of 2013, many tears fell on the pages of The Psalms in my Bible.)

    2) I have different shoe “categories” (LOL, i.e.- “Fun” shoe, “Cute” Shoe, “Most Comfortable” shoe etc,) so to pick one shoe….hmmm…OK…i’ll decide based on my Fun Category: I have silver sparkly “glitter” high top tennis shoes I bought on clearance ($2 only!) from Payless. I call these shoes my “Cinderella” high tops. I used it one time (so far..hahaha) during a Cinderella-themed 5K race! (These were so fun to wear for the 5K Run!) I’m chaperoning at Disneyland tomorrow for my daughter’s choir field trip, and I soooo want to wear them again for a fun day at Disneyland…but my 13-year-old daughter is begging me (LOL!) NOT to wear them. We’ll see;)

    3) Ok…you said NO JUDGING…so I trust you in this..well my husband jokes with me and says my “guilty pleasure” is watching The Bachelor/The Bachelorette Show (although I missed pretty much half of Juan Pablo’s season because of other priorities the past several weeks. But my Favorite Season of Bachelor: When Sean Lowe met Catherine, fell in love and got married AND best of all they glorified Jesus at their wedding! (And Sean even gave Catherine a Bible as a gift just before the start of their wedding ceremony.) AWESOME! May God bless them! May Catherine become a strong Christian woman of the Faith!

    4) We just discovered a new local favorite place for grabbing yummy lunch after church: Snapper Jacks in Thousand Oaks, CA! (Best Fish Tacos ever!!!) They serve other kinds of tacos, but I’m hooked with what I ordered the first time! (Oh I wish it were Sunday already, and not just cause of tacos! God’s Word preached by our Pastor on Sunday feeds me and satisfies me most!)

    5) I have lots of favorite movies, but one I discovered (during a red-eye flight) is titled SAFEHAVEN starring Julia Hough! I actually was on a plane heading to North Carolina for the first time ever last July 14th with a layover in Atlanta. As this movie played out and the main character was desperately trying to escape harm and seeking a place of refuge– I realized she (TOO, like me) was heading to North Carolina with a stopover in Atlanta! My journal entry after watching the movie: “Thank You Lord for reminding me that You are my refuge and SAFEHAVEN! Thank you for that movie filled with Suspense! Romance! Adventure! and themes of Faith and Hope! SO Inspiring! Thank you for reminding me that in my troubles, RUN TO YOU! Thank you also for reminding me as I watched this movie that you have angels watching over me. You send angels to guard me.”
    Literally, during my two weeks in NC (first week at The Billy Graham Training Center, then She Speaks 2013) I can honestly say that with all the miraculous things that happened to me out there in NC, I truly believe God had angels ministering to me, blessing me. God had to have orchestrated every miraculous detail during my trip—even with the movie on the plane (that I hadn’t planned to watch because I NORMALLY sleep during red eye flights, but God grabbed my attention and had other plans! So grateful to HIM!)

    Yay! I signed up for the next online Bible study! Looking forward to Living So That (…God might transform me more I pray!) Thanks Wendy for writing the new study!
    Joyful Blessings to You!
    Joy:)
