Announcing New On-Line Bible Study: Living So That

Last year when I learned Thomas Nelson would publish Living So That as part of their InScribed Collection, I couldn’t wait to share it with YOU, my on-line girlfriends, who have walked through so many studies with me!! You sent sweet words of congratulations and prayers and you came alongside me and helped promote the book. It stayed in the top 5 in Christian personal growth on Amazon for weeks and weeks!! And I know it’s all because of you, your prayers and God’s great favor.

So today I’m thrilled to announce that we will begin an on-line study with Living So That on Wednesday, October 22nd! I want to invite you to join this wonderful, safe place for community. Our time together studying the “so thats” of Scripture will open God’s Word to you in a fresh way, take you deeper into that Word and draw you closer to the heart of God and the beautiful hearts of the women who join us.

Now what’s the study about?

We know life is messy. But what we may not know is that God knew that too and gave us His Word, written thousands of years ago, to equip us to live out our faith in the midst of our messy lives. Every day brings issues, decision, struggles and problems with which we wrestle. We can choose to make “faith-filled” choices or “faith-less” choices. We will study the “so that” verses scattered throughout the New Testament. A “so that” verses take a truth of Scripture and connects it to a practical application of that truth. Studying these  “so that” verses, and learning to apply them, is God’s way of transforming our hearts and minds to make more faith-filled choices. We’ll focus on the following themes:

  • Jesus came so that…
  • God spoke so that…
  • Pray so that…
  • Trials come so that…
  • Let your light shine so that…
