It’s Time to Begin “Blogging Through the Bible!” {GMG September Resources Here}

Blogging through bible with GMG button

It’s time to begin reading through the Bible – one chapter a day, one week at a time, one month at a time, one year at a time until we have read the Bible cover to cover!

Are you wondering how GMG began?

I made this video below in 2011 for another website.  I thought I would share it here today, so you could hear the heart and vision behind GMG. Some of the details in the video have since changed (I’ve now been a part of GMG for 7 years not 4 as the video states) and in the video I say – we’ve only just begun – but now we are starting again – it’s a new day – a fresh start and we are SO glad you are here with us!


(click here if you cannot see the video)

In the video I mention the forum. That forum is still open!

If you do not have a group yet – there are leaders waiting with open arms to welcome you. Please click over to the forum, then go  down to the bottom of the threads and click “view more” – you will find many open groups there!  This forum closes on September 6th – so if God is tugging at your heart to find a group – today is the day to join us!

Here is September’s Reading Plan.

 This is a free printable – click here to print it.

And this is the monster resource – a free printable of every book and chapter of the Bible to mark off as you complete your reading. You will want to print this and save it somewhere near your Bible (or in it). We will be flipping back and forth between the Old and New Testament, so you will want to keep track of what you have completed in case you need to take a break and return.

  1. Courtney, we have a group of 6 ladies committed to reading through the Bible with you and we will be joining you this month. We are all across the nation, friends and family. I have also invited any other ladies that need an online group in the forum section.

    I have only done one GMG study in the past. Last year’s Thanksgiving study. I was very blessed by the study and was very blessed by the insight and sharing of the other ladies. But it was an email group and the structure was a little too rigid for me.

    When I saw that you were going through the Bible, I knew I wanted to join you. But I wanted a different group format, so I started one using an online bulletin board for my group.

    God Bless you and your beautiful family and your ministry. So excited to be joining you.

    • Looking forward to the journey. I am committed to this months reading plan. So excited to be apart of this. Thank you for all that you do! Blessings

    • I’m joining the monthly reading plan. I’m super excited!

  11. I’m doing this with Mandy Kelly’s group. I was almost hesitant to start such a big commitment, but I really feel like God wants me to do this and be prepared to share with my children when they are older and I can do it again with them. I love this slower pace. I did the reading the Bible in 90 Days and it was hard, but I didn’t get as much out of it as I thought. I need more slow and steady.

    While I had decided to personnally follow your reading plan, the Lord put into my heart to invite the women of our small church in the suburbs of Paris, France. The response astonished me. We will be at least 6 girls committed to read God´s word, in French. Now, let’s see what He has in store for us ! Oh yes, as for myself, I’ve been loosely following a few GMG studies since about two years.

  63. So excited to read through the Bible with you! I am committed to a healthy food plan and a housekeeping plan in September already. I think strengthening my soul through daily readings will complete my “new” life plan. I’ve tried this once before, but went in chronological order and got bored. I love the idea of skipping around through the books. Thank you, I love reading your blog!

  64. God had just put it on my heart to read through the Bible with my 7 year old son right before you announced that you would be blogging through the Bible. So at bedtime we will be reading together and after he goes to bed I will spend a little quiet time and SOAP what we read. So excited to get started!!

  81. Hubby and I will be reading together. We have found ourselves having drifted away from the church (not our faith, but the church) in the recent past and are committing to joining a new church and reading together every day.

  82. So happy to see women IN their BIBLES!!! Praying for all of you and for you, Courtney, as God speaks truth, brings life, and unfolds the mystery of Christ through his precious word. That Bible…it is everything. Much Love, many prayers, and hugs all around!

  86. Hi Courtney,

    I’m going it alone, no group this time around. I want to say thank you for continuing to build women up through the Lord. I found GMG by finding you first. At the time I was a working Mom expecting my fifth child, with a toddler, a 4th grader and two teens. My heart ached to be home with them. One day while doing an internet search, I ran across some of your videos or maybe your website (I can’t remember for sure) in any case I was instantly inspired and said to myself, that’s the kind of wife/mother I want to be. So began my journey of coming home to my children and husband, to be able to be fully present for them. My husband and I wanted this so much, but it seemed impossible. However, through much prayer and decernment, we made the final decision after the birth of our 5th baby for me to quit work and be a stay at home Mommy. I just wanted to say thank you for being God’s tool to inspire me to do his will for my family. May God bless you and keep you! Samantha

  87. Charlotte says:

    Joining you from New Zealand! My hubby will be reading along with me too. :)

  88. I am very excited to be reading alongside u through the bible. I have tried it a few times and have never completed it. Keen to have sisters doing it at same time. I have been doing GMG for about 3 yrs now and have had a group of ladies from church join me…the group has varied in size from 3-15 depending ok what ppl are doing in their lives. This month there will be 3 of us plus my husband and kids. We are listening to the verses on the audio bible. :) We live in Australia! :) thanks Courtney!

  89. My husband and I will both be reading along with you. :)

  90. I will be joining this month! I’m hoping to have a few friends join me as well as I could use some ladies to keep me accountable. I was blessed by the birth of my second son on August 11th (20 days old today!) and my other son is 2 (turns 3 in December), so things are a little crazy at my house. It makes it harder than ever to get any quiet time (at least quiet time that I’m not falling asleep!), but also means that I need time with The Lord more than ever to make it through each day as a godly wife and mother. Thank you Courtney for motivating me to stay in the word! :)

  91. Hi Courtney!

    A few of my girlfriends and I used to get together for “moms group” because we all had little ones around the same age. We have since all moved to different states so this was a great way for us to stay in contact! I plan on “leading” the group is there anything special I should do?

    • If you want to form a formal Good Morning Girls group we have many that utilize Facebook or Email to keep in touch, encourage and share what we study. Blessings Courtney!

  92. Hi Courtney! My friend, Inge and I will be joining in and using this as our daily Quiet Time. Inge is originally from Holland and was excited to see a Dutch translation offered. Though I’m so sorry how things came to be that you are hosting this here…. I’m grateful that you took this hardship as an opportunity to bless so many women. Thank you. Looking forward to reading the Bible together!!!

  93. Excited to join you this month! :)

  94. Hi!! I am so excited to be joining again..I have been leading a group since 2009 or 10., and even earlier than that on my own. I love GMG and all that a God has planned for this. God has prepared our group. There are 4 of us for now, a few in Ca and Utah and NV. We are so excited to be joining you again and am also looking forward to Making your home your haven. I’m a blogger and can’t wait to share on Friday!!

    Stop by @ http://www.reina4jesus.blogspot.com
    Blessings,
    Adrienne

  95. Joining in from Miami, FL. I have been in a GMG group for the last year, what a blessing you have been to me Courtney. I was a non-Christian and found your site 2 years ago while looking for recipe’s on the internet. Now I am in a GMG group and your online ministry is the reason why! I love your new plan to read the whole bible, I am very excited to get started. My husband is reading with me.
    Thank You for all you do, I can imagine the hard work it must be.

  96. I am committing to doing This by myself but I know I am not alone! I am looking forward to Wednesdays and Fridays when you blog about this weeks readings. I am also looking forward to creating this new habit of spending time each day in God’s Word. I have been reading short devotions almost daily but I feel that I need to be spending more time in His Word. Thank you and your team for putting these resources together.

  97. Lisa Wine says:

    Very excited to be starting I will be joining you this month from Indiana.

  98. Tracey N. says:

    I’m looking forward to joining this month, from Seminole, Texas. :)

  99. I am committed to read through the Bible with you all. I am in the Homeschooling Moms GMG group. I have no idea how many are in my group. LOL! I have just printed off all of my resources and am going to do my reading after I put the kiddos to bed tonight. I am from Williamsburg, Va. I have been married for 10 years and have 3 boys plus one in heaven.

  100. Joining in from Montana!

  101. Count me in! I’m from Toronto, Ontario.

  102. Joining in from MS. I’m a new homeschool mom to two littles, with one college age kiddo living at school. My hubby is in the US Navy which is why we are in MS ;) I’m originally from Maine. Looking forward to reading through the Bible with everyone. I read through before my daughter was born and she’s almost 2.

  103. Let’s do this! I pray this journey changes my character as a woman, wife, mom, friend, sister and most importantly child of God. In everything, I want Jesus to be seen! I haven’t seen a forum just for this series, though. There are so many topics I feel I relate to but I’m not sure which one to pursue. Can one forum be started just for Blogging/Reading Through the Bible?

    • Hi Jess! The bottom two sections of the forum are just for this study. The others are related a series that Courtney did earlier this year surrounding her book. I hope that helps. Let us know if you need help navigating the threads.

  104. Looking forward to my first study with y’all! Just moved, my husband has started dental school and I have started a new job. Excited to have this accountability as part of my new routine!

  105. I’m on board, from Louisville, TN!! :)

  106. I am in! Thank you for putting this together.

  113. Julie Nikel says:

    I have been SOAPing through Proverbs 31 with your e-book, it has been a tremendous blessing. I have learned so much already. I will be joining now as well from Manitoba, Canada

  114. Joining in from Phelan, CA along with my sister Megan from Holland, MI! Looking forward to the journey ahead through God’s word

  115. I love the idea of one chapter a day. I have been brought up in the read the Bible through a year but sometimes that is not easy to do. I haven’t been very good at being faithful at reading my Bible every day. I love this because it is easier to concentrate on one chapter at a time than to try to keep up with a reading plan to meet a timeline. I think concentrating on one chapter I can get more out of what I’m reading as well. I don’t want to just read to say I’ve read it. I want to read it to apply it to my life. I want to strengthen my relationship with Christ and make Him a priority.

    Thank you for this plan. I look forward to completing this plan and learning what God’s Word is going to teach me.

  116. Joining in from West Virginia!! :-)

  117. I am joining in from Jacksonville, Florida.

I spent the summer reading some of the bible on my own w/out following any blogs or bible studies or groups and I am ready to join WLW and GMG this Fall for some fellowship while continuing to read through the bible. Look forward to sharing with you Courtney and all the women following in the coming month. God Bless!

    Please let me know if there is something else I’m supposed to do to join this group. Thanks!

  127. Ammetta Whigham says:

    Joining in from NY. Can’t wait to get started and see what the Lord has in store for me.

  128. Looking forward to reading through the Bible! Thank you for organizing this…

  129. I’m in. Thank you for putting this together.

  130. Joining in from Loiisiana!

  131. Please help!!!
    I have subscribed to your site for over 2 years, been a group leader on GMG for over a year… I am not getting emails anymore??? I can’t re-subscribe. It says I already am a subscriber. But I am not getting any of your stuff since the weird site change scenario?? Help!!!
    Wendy

    • Wendy – the study has moved here – so if you subscribed to the old GMG site, you may not be receiving them because they changed URLs. The study here is a completely different study, and all the materials you need are right in the post. You can just click and download them. If you would like to receive Courtney’s blog posts, you will need to subscribe to Women Living Well. I hope that helps. :D I know it’s been very confusing – you are not alone. But, the kinks will be all worked out soon.

  132. Summer Maryanski says:

    I’m joining in & have a GMG group called GMG Study Group- Titus 2 Women Daily Following Jesus. I’m in Key Largo, FL & just added our 17th lady to the group. I started doing GMG studies off & on whenever Courtney came out with the Proverbs 31 study….then I’ve led studies since the spring of 2013. I love GMG! Most of my groups have been with local friends. This time I have a lot of locals, but also ladies from other areas too! So looking forward to reading the WHOLE Bible together!!

    • Thank you so much Summer for joining us and leading a Good Morning Girls group! I’m praying for y’all as we’re just starting a new study! Blessings!

  133. I am thrilled to be a part of this! I am just finishing Esther 2 tonight. This is the first time I’ve ever been a part of an accountability group. I hope to hear from my email group tomorrow, as I just joined in today. Thank you Courtney and all the other ladies who jumped in to help (ie Mandy, etc.,). I’m sure this is going to open many hearts. Much love from Glendale, AZ.

  134. I am not part of a group, but am excited to be on this journey with all of you. Looking forward to great revelations! Excited in Montgomery, NY!

  135. I am joining from The Netherlands, Europe.

  136. I’ll be in for September. :)

  137. Tabitha Shelor says:

    I’m new to GMG, but in for September! So excited

  138. Thanks for all your hard work Courtney! I contribute at Satisfaction Through Christ blog and we’ll be joining you for the Blogging Through the Bible journey. :)

  139. I’ve been looking forward to starting this study. We are in the middle of moving out of state and far from friends and family. I have so many questions. Why now? What for? How long? I want to find purpose in this move. His purpose. And so I’m anticipating reading the Word and drawing closer to The Lord during this season. Thanks Courtney, for putting this together. Maybe I’ll even start blogging again! :)

  140. I’m in! I’m I the only one who would love a year of nothing but beauty treatments??

  141. Sharon Garner says:

    Thanks Courtney for taking your time to put all of this wonderful material together for us girls to study. Love it! I do have a question. In the SOAP part, “when it says write out the scripture passage for the day”, what scripture am I writing out? I don’t see one on the sheets I printed out. Do I just pick one out of the chapter for the day? Help please.

    • I am joining in solo from Arizona! I am an army wife to 3 littles and since we move so much (only here for 6 months!) this study is kind of perfect for me. I have admired Courtney for years and after having 3 kids in less than 3 years feel like I am just now recovering and starting to draw close to God again. Being able to wake up before the kids is such a blessing (a couple of those 3 years I was too sleep deprived and my spiritual life definitely suffered!). Excited to get started and dig into God’s amazing word!

    • Hey Sharon, I didn’t mean to post my comment in reply to yours, but since I did, I’ll try to answer your question anyway :) I’m pretty sure Courtney said she wouldn’t be assigning scripture to SOAP and for us to just individually SOAP any scripture that stood out to us.

    • Thanks Meghan for answering -you are right! ;)

      Good question Sharon. I know that others are wondering the same – so thanks for asking. You are free to choose whichever verse or verses speak to you (or none at all and just read the chapter through and then pray).

      So glad you are joining us!
      Courtney

  142. I’m committed to this! I’ve already learned so much out of the first 2 books of Esther. We do a similar breakdown of chapters at our church. We will read a chapter, choose a verse, then do 4 things with it. We will write out the verse. Then, we will write it in our own words – our own version, you might say. If we speak a different language (because we are an international church in Germany), then we write it in that language to help us learn. The 3rd thing is to sum it up in 1 word or just a few words. Then, we decide what we’re going to do with it this week! Similar to SOAP. I’m excited to go through these chapters. Thanks!

  143. Marita Guinsatao says:

    Joining you this month. Thank you for your ministry.

  144. I’m joining in from Montana. Thank you Courtney for your dedication to this ministry.

  145. GROUP CONCERN:

    Hi Courtney & team. I have a concern in my group that I do not want to put on blast. For some reason, I am not able to send a PM to leader (which I think is most appropriate to do). Could you please guide me with what to do. This thread of comments is long. So if possible, would you please email or tell me how I can pass the info along.

  146. I’ll be joining this month! I’m very excited to start this plan – I even made the plunge and wrote in my Bible for the first time! I can’t wait to see what my notes and quite time reveal to me. Thank you for doing a study that is pressure-free – perfectionists everywhere will rejoice! So many times I’ve started one of the one-year plans only to get behind and feel overwhelmed with catching up. I LOVE the full printable that I can check off each piece, instead of have to meet a “quota” each day. Thank you thank you!

  147. I will be following along from Teague, TX! :)

  148. Jennifer Lofty says:

    I am a preacher’s wife from NW Georgia. I am looking forward to this study.

  149. Hi,
    I’m joining from Sandared, Sweden. This is my first visit to GMG and I’m so exited that I found this page. I hope to maybe find a group to, but I’m not sure yet which one… =)

  150. Teresa Fletcher says:

    Looking forward to this more than I can say! Joining from Fayetteville, NC – hoping and praying for a life changing experience!

  151. I am reading along! Thank you.

  152. Joy Johnston says:

    So looking forward to this journey each day. I’ve already signed up for a group. Thanks so much for leading.

  153. My mother, my sister, my children and myself will be doing this reading. We are excited.

  154. I have struggled and have been unsuccessful in reading the bible from beginning to end several times now! I have tried the Read in 90 days plan and have failed both times- too much in too little time and from Pg 1 in Genesis til the end is not my style! I am not in a group but have a goal of finishing the bible, and with your plan I KNOW that I will succeed this time! I am so happy that I happened upon you on FB :) I have started my notebook and have my checklists all printed and ready to go! Thank you so much!!! Hugs and Blessings!

  155. I’m so excited for this! I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time!

  156. Roxanne Wiltz says:

    I am so excited to join this group! I have no friends or family near other than my husband and daughter. I get lonely sometimes because feel like they are busy with life and I’m at a stand still. I feel like I will finally have someone to talk to without any one feeling like they are at fault for how I’m feeling!!

  157. Linda Lyles says:

    I am joining from Louisburg NC

  158. I’m having a hard time deciding to pursue this Good Morning Girls study and the old Good Morning Girls group that is now called Love God Greatly. I’m wondering what is the difference between you two now and whether or not I should pursue your studies or the original site (now changed name) of Love God Greatly. Any advise? What are the key differences and similarities to the two of you? Any others experiencing this same dilemma I’d appreciate some feedback. Thanks! Regardless I think you are both great and wonderful and so encouraging and motivating for wanting to continue to pursue online bible studies in God’s name. :-)

    • Hi Rachel – The girls at LGG wanted a new name and domain – so the only thing that has changed over there is their name. Since they wanted this change and no longer are using GMG – I brought Good Morning Girls back home to Women Living Well where it began. They are doing 8 weeks in Esther – we are reading through the Bible – cover to cover – one chapter a day. So we will be in Esther just 10 days and then moving on to I Peter, II Peter and so on. We will begin the book of Genesis at the start of October.

      Hope that clarifies.
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

  159. Will be joining this journey.

  160. So happy to have found this and right when you are starting too! I will be joining in and am so excited! I will be reading along from Texas.

  161. I am excited about being more deliberate about my morning bible study / devotion time! My 8 year old daughter is interested in doing something too. I remember reading something about your own study / journal time as a girl. Any suggestions? Is there a study that you could recommend for her? TIA

  162. I am joining!! Can’t wait to do this!!

  163. Thanks so much for putting this together. I will be joining in from Tasmania, Australia :)

  164. I have been praying about where to go for a bible study this fall, I have a chronic health condition that, at (frequent) times, causes extreme fatigue that can make going out difficult.

    I was wondering if I had it in me to do an online program…I have been following your blog/facebook posts for about 4-5 months and think I am ready to commit! So I’m jumping in to follow your plan.

    Looking forward to spending deeper time with you guys!

  165. How do you connect with a group, can someone please help? Thank you

  166. I’ll be joining from Ohio! Super excited!

  167. Looking forward to reading the Bible!

  168. Deborah Coleman says:

    I am so excited to join this bible reading plan.

  169. Mariella Grace says:

    Just started the reading plan and have a few girls here in the Lancaster/York PA area that have joined me to form a Good Morning Girls group together. So excited and grateful for the help to develop discipleship! :)

    • Genine Massaquoi says:

      Hello Neighbor,

  174. I’m in! From South Mississippi. My Mom and I are doing this together, which is so exciting to me. I also joined a fb group for mothers of young children along with a local friend. I’m looking forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for us during this journey. Thank you so much for leading this and putting so much time and effort into this for us.

  175. I’ll be joining you from Indiana.

  181. Excited to join, Denton, TX!

  184. Ashley Hammond says:

    I am glad that I stumbled upon this today!! I want to know more about the Bible and I think that this is a great place to start.

  185. Susie Hughes says:

    Hi Courtney, I am joining your study on Esther. Excited about what God is going to do in my life through this study. After looking at your study methods, I purchased a 5 subject notebook and ready to Journal. Thanks for all the wonderful resources and your servants heart.

  186. I’d love to join this group! can you help me understand how to join a group in the forum? thank you!

    • Hi Maranatha!

      Just click on over to the forum and go to the bottom of the forum – there you will find different groups forming according to interests – pick a group and let them know you are interested in joining them. You might have to click “view more” to see all of the groups at the bottom since they ran onto another page.

      Hope that helps! So glad you are here!
      Courtney :)

  187. Christy Clyatt says:

    I would love to do this! It sounds like a great group of people, a great way to study the bible, and a great way to read all the way through the Bible which I’ve always wanted to do!! So, count me in!! Plus my mom, best friend and sister might jump on board with me with a little bit of convincing so I’m definitely praying about that part. It would mean the world if I could share this with them!!

  188. I’m so onboard with this! I just found this ministry this morning so jumping right on board. I’ve emailed it out to many of my Christian friends and hope they tag team!
    I also emailed a few friends to start a GMG group too!

    Question – do you have to join a group in the forum?

    EXCITED from Florida MASSACHUSETTS!

    • Welcome Tammy – I’m so glad to hear you are joining us!

      To answer your question – if you already have a group you do not need the forum – but if you would like (this is optional) you can join our Facebook Leadership Group to connect with other leaders if that interests you – here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1672573989635260/

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

      • Thanks Courtney -
        I also wasn’t sure if the GMG email group needs to discuss the study?
        Most want to join the email group that aren’t doing the study. Is there any guidance to the GMG email group?

  189. Tiffany Brown says:

    I am joining for Holden, Louisiana :) I am really excited for this Bible Study and reading through the whole Bible :) I haven’t ever done it and I am truly excited and ready to see what God has in store for me. As well as doing this study with ya’ll I am also doing this study with my family. So every evening we will read the chapter together and have a discussion on it and let me just I am loving it. Thank you again Courtney for bringing not only women into God’s word but families as well. Praying for you and your family.

  190. Hi, I’m joining from West Virginia!

  191. Lori Turner says:

    I’m joining from Moore, Oklahoma. Thank you Courtney!

  192. I’m joining from Golden, CO. Courtney, you have been such an inspiration to me! Since reading your book last year, I have read the Bible almost every day, and I’m thrilled to make this commitment with you!

  193. Emily Barrois says:

    Joining the study from New Orleans, LA. Just joined a group and can’t wait for Wednesday’s post!

  194. I just finished reading through the Bible in 90 days in Chronological order. We had a small group on a closed Facebook page. I look forward to slowly reading and savoring this time.

  195. Now that school has finally started here in Minnesota, I have time to devote to myself and focus on God! I’m so excited for going through the Bible with all of you. I have used Courtney’s other studies and she is just awesome! I love hearing her insights; they are so helpful when I’m totally confused. Looking forward to this adventure!

  196. I have a small group starting hoping it will grow as we continue!

  197. Daren Norris says:

    A little late to the game, but…I’m IN!

  198. Joining from Springfield, Illinois.

  199. Starting late, but so looking forward to participating in this study and have encouraged others to also. Thank you so much for providing this study. May God richly bless you! So excited that this is a Bible study I can participate in from wherever I am. I have two homes and going back and forth between the two make it difficult to be in a traditional study.

  200. Brandi Talmadge says:

    Good Morning Girls!

    I’m joining this month from Connecticut and am very much looking forward to reading and learning more on this spiritual journey. Courtney, Thank you so much for your time in making an online home we can all come to and feel a common connection through the Word of God. Reading your posts brings a spiritual calmness to my day. It’s refreshing and very much needed in today’s increasingly troubled world – I’m glad to know there are many Christians that share common core values. God Bless!

  201. Beth Morgan says:

    I am starting the study today. I do not know what I am doing as far as on online study, but I thought it be great to try. Thanks.

  202. This is a great way to start off the Fall season!! So excited to be joining in this journey! Thankful for you!!!

  203. I’m a day late, but I am excited to be doing this with so many great ladies! :)

  204. Hi Courtney,

    I’m a very new christian and I’m struggling with reading the bible and getting to know Him… I also can’t seem to find a church community here at home since moving back from overseas where I found God (I live in England). So I’ve been searching for something I can do at home, ideally online to help me learn more about God and the Word – and this looks perfect! Thank you for sharing, I’m excited to join in on the journey!

    Amy X

  205. Hi Courtney, I am joining from Wisconsin. Though I have been a Christian for quite some time now, I have not read the Bible from cover to cover. I am very excited to be starting it now with all of you. My thirst for the word has increased greatly over the past few years. I believe God lead me to your website about 2 years ago. What a blessing you are Courtney! Thank you for seeking and listening to God’s direction. May He continue to Bless you and all of us we study His Word together. I am excited!!

    Debbie

  206. Joining from Ontario, Canada!!

  207. Joining a tad late from Phoenix, AZ. Thanks for the encouragement and resources!

  208. I want to start of saying how thankful I am for this website, and this devotional. Someone shared about this on facebook, and being the curious person I am I had to find out more about it. I haven’t really figured this all out yet, but I am slowly figuring it out.. I am starting a little late as this is my first day. Do any of you have suggestions on what info I should or shouldn’t print or if there is anything that works best for this… thanks for your input, and thanks so much for this website. it is a blessing, and i am excited to get started

  209. Are there specific verses that we should be using the SOAP method on? Before the split with GMG the reading plans had daily reading and then a specific verse to SOAP. I like that everyone in the group was doing it for the same verse and we could compare what God was showing us in that verse for the day. Also, is the GMG reading plan still available on the YouVersion Bible App?I like being able to pull it up on there instead of having to have my paper with me all the time. Thanks in advance to anyone that can answer my questions! :)

    • Hi Kristin – I apologize we are not on you version right now.

      And the SOAPing has changed just a bit. We are reading one chapter a day through the entire Bible and allowing each woman to tailor this study to her needs. Some will only be able to read the chapter for the day – others will be able to SOAP a few verses and others are writing out the entire chapter! So we are leaving which verses to choose to the Holy Spirit, your needs and time constraints.

      Great question – thanks for asking! So glad you are joining us again!
      Courtney

  210. We created a group in Lebanon MO. How do I join the leadership page? We are committed to reading daily!

  211. Joining from Rochester, Minnesota. Starting a bit late but on my way. Thank you. ChrisTina

  212. HI, I am joining you on this journey

  213. Hi…excited to be on the journey with you! There is no link for the “monster resource” referenced below. How can we print the whole thing? blessings, Vita

    “And this is the monster resource – a free printable of every book and chapter of the Bible to mark off as you complete your reading.”

  214. Janie Palmertree says:

    I literally stumbled upon your site this week, and have decided to follow along and read the bible ith everyone! So reading along in central MS!

  215. Started on Tuesday and all caught up! Following along in Virginia.

  216. I am joining from Iowa. God’s timing and fingerprints are all over this ministry. It came into my life at just the right time. My trials and pain lead me to seek God instead of running away from Him like I’ve done in the past. Glory be to God in my time of need.

  217. Am I too late to start following the bible study?

  218. Hi Courtney!
    I would love to say thank you to our Lord for giving you this great gift of reaching sooo many women all over the world and I want to thank you for sharing your thoughts and ideas.

    You inspired me and I have new ideas how and what I can do with my girls’ group. I totally love the idea of sharing what you read via Email. Perhaps, it will become a new “tradition” for us, too.

    I am excited to start reading along with GMG.

    Lots of love,
    Marina

  219. I am looking forward to this month’s reading plan, have just finished the book of Esther (got started and couldn’t stop). Also hope to participate in the blogging. Have requested to join a group but still pending on that (colorfull hearts).

  220. I, too , will be joining you on this journey. Thank you for providing this plan.

  221. I am a few days late, but I am joining you all! I did GMG a few months back and then stopped. I need a good reading plan to follow to keep me on track and this sounds great, Courtney! Thanks for organizing this :) I am ready to go! (Even caught up on the reading this morning after missing 6 days, lol).

  222. I’m a week late, I hope that’s okay. But I would really like to begin this starting tomorrow (Sunday). I really hope that with me being a week behind that won’t cause issues? Thank you for the time you spent organizing this and all the beautiful free printables for it. I’ve printed everything out and put them in my bible study binder, although I’m considering creating a binder specifically for this, because I printed out all the stuff for the first month and it’s taking up a whole lot of room in my binder right now lol.

  223. kara correale says:

    i am grateful to be joining you here in northern california.i found you on pintrest and love all.i am especially learning better by doing one chapter at a time and writing soap.scrolling down the comments i noticed ladies from all over the world.thank you for your faith and knowledge and for sharing it with us.

  224. You really make it seem really easy togetherr with
    your presentation however I to find this topic to be actually one thing
    whichh I believe I would by no means understand. It sort oof feels too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m taking a look ahead on your subsequent publish, I’ll attempt to get the cling of it!

  225. Jozie Mader says:

    I read Esther with you but I’m getting a late start on reading the blogs and comments. I’m hoping by the end of this week I’ll be caught up!
    So joining from Columbus, MT!

  226. This artificial fragrance, alcohols will create
    pain and skin irritation. He still couldn’t believe that
    he was working for the woman everyone referred to as Mrs.

    Social studies have shown that men and women both view a tanned body as being healthier
    than a tanned body, but it is worth bearing in mind that if a sunbed is used for more than the recommended amount of time, there is likely an ugly truth hiding behind apparently healthy tanned skin.

I love hearing what is on your heart.
