The Hidden Joy Study begins here on Monday, April 9th and runs through the end of May. Please invite your friends to join us.  Below please find a brief summary of the study.

Drawing from her book, Hidden Joy, Wendy shares her incredible journey of healing and restoration after being assaulted by a man hiding in her apartment.  Her story is an amazing testimony of God’s strength in our weakness, His hope in our hopelessness, and His healing in our brokenness. Through this study with Wendy you will:

1. Apply God’s Word in a way that makes it relevant and applicable to your every day circumstances.

2. Gain victory over your fears through regularly and faithfully praying Scripture.

3.  Intensify and empower your prayer life through learning to pray God’s Word.

This seven-week on-line study will include short weekly video messages, Bible study, chapter discussions, lessons on how to pray, great fellowship, and on-going conversations on Wendy’s web site.

There is no cost to join the on-line studies. The only cost will be the purchase price of Hidden Joy. You will also need a Bible and a notebook or journal. We would love for you to purchase the book through Proverbs 31 Ministries. I will sign each book purchased from our P31 web site. But the book is also available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other book stores. It is also available electronically.

    <3 Heather

  2. THANKS to Heather Bleier and Veronica Herzing for your generosity of the “Hidden Joy” Books by Wendy Blight.
    I’m excited to be chosen as one of the winners. I look forward to getting the book and going through the Online Study with Wendy!!
    Wish I could personally come by to meet everyone and say THANK YOU and give a hug….but distance is our problem!! 🙂 All of you are a great blessing to me! It is so great having such sweet, wonderful sisters in Christ!!
    I look forward to meeting more friends!
    Thanks again! Loves, hugs, and many prayers to each of you!
    In Christ’s Love,

    • Congratulations on being one of the winners. I hate that distance is a problem too, but very thankful we can use the internet for growing closer as sisters in Christ and growing closer to Christ through the support of everyone we meet through these amazing studies.

  3. I am ready to find the joy that has been hidden for some time now. Can’t wait for the Bible study to start.

  4. This study ladies is life changing, I am so excited that each one of you have signed up to join Wendy and learn to find you JOY. Along with Heather, I donated the books because I feel that strongly about this study and that it CAN change your life – word of caution though, it’s not a magic cure, you have to put in the work. You get out of the study what you put in – so put your all into ladies and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

    Thank you Wendy once again for sharing your story to help other women find their joy even in the dark corner. You are so inspiring and I love you!!!!

    I’m so glad you’re doing the Hidden Joy study! I did it w/ Melissa Taylor’s online study group last year, but I didn’t complete the study and am excited to have the opportunity to go through it again! Please pray for me that God will help me manage my time wisely because I am joining this as well as two other online Bible studies as well and really want to complete all three. Studying God’s Word is exciting to me but it is so easy to let life take over sometimes. I really want to be faithful in this! Thank you for offering this study, sharing your experiences of what God’s done in your life…even in the most horrifying of experiences, and for your prayers!


  7. As a male;I enjoy devotions and ministries from a woman’s perspective.I have gone through some painful experiences within my childhood and my life.I feel closer to teaching from a woman of the Lord.I hope that I am welcomed to take this journey with my fellow sisters in the Lord.

  8. I am sitting locked in my bedroom praying that I make it through yet another day. I live in fear constant fear that today will be the day my husband “serves” me divorce papers, as he has threaten and desires. He keeps a log of everything I do, say and even what he does. I have always believed he had an adgenda and that was to drive me insane. 2004 he began an affair that caused him to attempt sucide and as I prayed over him and took the gun from his hand I thought this is it he got it! But that was not the case. So here I am after years of praying and believing living like a fool…a crazy fool. He walks around talking about me to others, claiming things that I have done and thing I did not do and I am trying to keep my mouth shut….about the 4 women I know about and the pain I could cause if I just spoke…he has no fear…he has no shame and apparently doesn’t care even about these families. He goes to a church that prays over him, lays hands on him for strenght to live through this life that he must put up with??? I am so mad, so hurt that I must live through this, that I have lived through it, that I see him living so blessed and full of himself…I cannot do this…claim to be a christian woman and not even feel the presents of the Lord, feel his protection against this man who I loved so deeply…where is my God…where are the promises to me…why can he not see my pain just even driving home I become overwhelmed…please God please…I am so lost and hate this life…
