A New Adventure

In the last couple months, I found the most delightful blogs.  The first is http://www.womenlivingwell-courtney.blogspot.com/.  This fantastic lady is talking about how to create a biblical marriage and family.  From her blog, I found Good Morning Girls at http://www.goodmorninggirls.org/.  Good Morning Girls is a couple of ladies that have established an on-line bible study for women across the world.  This summer, there are over 150 small groups and over 1400 women participating.  The summer session began on Monday, but I think you can still join a group, if you are interested.  I have been blessed to be a part of one of the small groups called GMG Summer 2011, on Facebook and at this blog, http://gmgsummer2011.blogspot.com/.  We are studying about 3 Psalms each week in a topical study and we are studying Sally Clarkson's book, The Ministry of Motherhood.  Each morning, we have our quiet time to study God's word.  We all study the same passage of scripture and apply the following study method:

1. S- Write out the scripture passage for the day.

2. O- Write down 1 or 2 observations from the passage.

3. A- Write down 1-2 applications from the passage.

4. P- Pray over what you learned from today’s passage.

We then post some of the details of our study for our group.  Our moderator has a few study questions for us to think about and answer, as well. 
This morning, I was invited to lead the book study in our group.  Starting Monday, I will be posting reading assignments and the scriptures that we'll study each week to enhance our reading.  There are also activities in the study and discussion sections of this book that I will be posting for those who want to participate.  Good Morning Girls will post a video from Sally Clarkson each Monday.  On Wednesday, participants are encouraged to post in with comments or links to their blogs where they are posting about their experiences.  On Friday, the moderators of Good Morning Girls will be commenting on the weekly reading, usually in video format. 
I will be posting my book club and, possibly, my psalms studies here, as well as in the GMG Summer 2011 blog and our Facebook group. 
I am so excited to be a part of this fantastic group of ladies and this powerful ministry.  Thank you, Jenny, for inviting me to help with our small group. 
Can't wait to share this fantastic experience with all of you!
