Quietly Through Your Bible in June :: Plus #QuietlyThroughThursday Link-up

Each of these links will take you to a short video or a podcast, giving you an overview or a more in depth commentary. Ecclesiastes Read Scripture Ecclesiastes Wisdom Literature: Proverbs, […]

Welcome back! It’s Tuesday and time for us to continue our journey quietly through 1st John. If you missed week one or week two, I highly encourage you to read those posts first. If you are ready for week three, let’s go. The Test of Knowing Him 3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in […]

Quietly Through 1st John (Week 1) :: What Was Heard, Seen, and Touched (1 John 1:1-4)

Yay! It’s Tuesday! And its officially the first day of our Quietly Through 1st John online Bible study. But before we begin I want to clarify something that I realized might be a bit confusing. Quietly Through the Bible, Quietly Through Thursdays, and Quietly Through 1st John are different things. Quietly Through the Bible is the name for the two-year reading plan I shared last January. Quietly Through Thursdays is a series of posts I publish on Thursdays in response the two-reading plan. Quietly Through 1st John is an online Bible study that we are starting today […]

Quietly Through 1st John :: An Online Bible Study

The first epistle of John. It’s rich with truths about God’s love for us and His love working through us. It’s also full of instructions on how to allow His love to grow within and pour from us. First John also contains some intimidating verses like “by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments “(1 John 2:3) or “whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in Him” (1 John 2:5). I know that I don’t keep the Lord’s commands perfectly and at one point in my life […]

Bible Study Made Super Simple

Bible study. What do you think of when you hear these words? Maybe you think of a book written to help you understand God’s word. Perhaps you think of a group of people meeting together to discuss God’s word. It could be that you picture a group of people with an additional book intending to talk about God’s word, but instead they wind up shooting the breeze for so long that they never actually end up talking about the Bible. (Yeah, it’s happened to me, too). There is nothing wrong with written Bible studies or […]

The Simplest – and Best! – Reason for Bible Study

I love Hello Mornings, an online ministry dedicated to encouraging women to spend time with God, plan their day, and make healthy choice first thing in the morning. This encouragement is wonderful and has really changed my life but (and this is a big but), if I start to hold Hello Mornings’ advice up to the same level of God’s word I can find myself discouraged, feeling guilty and wallowing in self-induced shame. Which, I am sure, neither God nor the Hello Morning staff wants. So why can I end up feeling so low? Because […]

Quietly Through the Bible :: Don’t Give Up {Plus a Free Printable}

Did you read the last post on all the wonderful reasons to follow a Bible reading plan? Did you decide to jump into God’s word and download the free PDF? How is your daily time in the Word going? Have you been able to keep up or have you needed grace? Me? I’ve needed grace. I’ve already missed a day or two (maybe three). But oh well, I’m not going to let a few missed days ruin the next 11 1/2 months of being in God’s Word. Several of us start the new year determined to be in the […]
