Be Brave. {Exodus 1 & 2}

Suspension bridge and mountain in Nepal

When we think of the beginning of the story of Moses, we typically think of a baby in a basket floating on the Nile. But as we begin our reading through Exodus, we see 5 women – in the midst of a crisis, courageously standing against the violence of the culture surrounding them.  God used these seemingly insignificant women to protect and nurture the man that God would use to deliver his people. These women put a hand in the face of injustice and evil and said – No. Let’s take a look at these brave women from Exodus 1 […]

New Series Announcement: Women Leading Well

New Series Announcement Women Leading Well

  Women play a vital role in the growth of the church.  We are daughters, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, nieces and friends. We are teachers, helpers, administrators, visionaries, planners, and counselors. We lead and co-lead Women’s Bible Studies, Teas, Retreats, Children’s Programs, MOPS programs, Hospitality Luncheons, visits to the elderly and visit the sick. We make meals, write notes of encouragement, collect food for the hungry, rock babies, teach children to worship, disciple teens, go on missions trips, and train up the next generation. That’s only scratching the surface of the myriad of ways women serve in the church. Our […]

How to use the Bible Coloring Chart 2

Some of you asked that I further explain the SOAK and Bible Coloring Chart Method.  Please remember, these methods are optional.  They are tools that help us soak God’s word into our hearts more deeply. “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.”   (Colossians 3:16) This short video explains it all! {If you are reading this in an email – come on over to the blog to see this video. I hope it blesses you!} Here is the SOAK method I refer to in the video: S – The S stands for Scripture O – The O stands […]

Studying the Bible Using the SOAK Method, Coloring Chart and Meditation

Studying the Bible 2 soak color chart mediation memorization

I am so excited to share with you all of the new things I have been praying over and planning for the next GMG session! So let’s get to it! For the last 5 years, we have used the SOAP method to study God’s word.  The SOAP method is not original to me. It is a method that has been used by other ministries and other websites.  My mother used this method to disciple me when I was in 5th grade (I still have my journal from 1986).  That is why I chose it for GMG. I love this method […]

Do You Have the Christmas Blues? {Psalm 19}

Christmas Blues

“7 The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; 8 the precepts of the Lord are right,  rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; 9 the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. 11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.” Psalm 19:7-11 As soon as the Christmas […]
