The winner of the Why I Wear a Toe Ring giveaway from over the weekend is: Mary Hayes. Send your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can ship your gift out soon.
For the past five summers, my friend Mary and I have done a Bible study together.
She lives in Illinois. I live in Michigan. So, we “meet” each Wednesday morning early over the phone.
She is in her home with her dog at her feet. I am out on my back deck with my plants all around.
Since neither of us tend to be in an organized study over the summer, we felt studying and meeting this way would keep us grounded in God’s word and prevent us from slacking off in our spiritual lives over the lazy hot days.
And it has.
We keep it very simple.
One of us prays before we start. Then, we just go through each day’s homework and say “What did you like, learn or get convicted by?” Then, we share any issues or situations for which we need prayer and the other person prays.
We are done in an hour.
Will you consider grabbing a Bible and a faraway (or nearby) friend for a study this summer? If so, leave a comment telling us who will be your study partner.
I’ll randomly choose six gals from among the ones who comment. You will each be given a copy our our own Proverbs 31 Bible teacher Wendy Blight’s great ebook study on the book of Proverbs called All Things Wise and Wonderful. You can easily do this 5 week study with a friend from now until the end of the summer. Here is the description:
Wendy’s study, All Things Wise and Wonderful: Applying God’s Wisdom in Every Day Life, is a five week study grounded in the book of Proverbs. It teaches you how to make Bible passages understandable and applicable. It will bring God’s Word alive and bring perceptible transformation in:
- Your relationships
- Your attitudes
- Your speech
- Your priorities
- Your whole heart
Ok, who will you study God’s word with this summer? Winner announced Thursday.
