Quiet Time Tip – The Buddy System

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NASB

For those who are new to Women Living Well – you may not know that I have a sister site called Good Morning Girls. Today Teri Lynne over at Scripture Dig is featuring Women Living Well’s Good Morning Girls site.

The “Good Morning Girls” is a title for a group of women who use email, facebook, texting or twitter to keep each other accountable for their quiet times. For 3 years straight, I have been a part of 5 girls who email each other each weekday morning after we have our quiet time. We say “Good Morning” and then share what we read in our quiet time. Some of us have our quiet time first thing in the morning, while others squeeze it in during children’s naps or at bedtime.

The Good Morning Girls groups run for three months at a time – this summer session will end August 15th. If you would like to get in on the next session, start thinking now about who’d you invite to join you and then sign ups will begin September 1st over on the Good Morning Girls Message Board.

This summer we had over 100 groups with 600 ladies sign up. We are from 34 different states and 5 different countries! Most groups have 3-11 ladies in it. But there is one church that has 68 women and another group on facebook that has 32! We simply are using the buddy system (accountability) to keep us in God’s word.

To read more about what accountability provides and what to look for in an accountability partner – visit Teri Lynn at Scripture Dig. Scripture Dig is an excellent quiet time tool that I recommend you follow! The ladies who write there KNOW THEIR STUFF! And are focused on helping us dig into scripture. My favorite post on there is understanding all the different Bible translations. This is a confusing topic that they wrote with clarity on.

To learn more about what the Good Morning Girls groups are all about, listen to this 2 minute video here. Pray about who God may want to be your Buddy for the fall. And if you simply cannot wait until September 1st to get started, we welcome you to sign up on the message board now and get started mid-session!

Walk with the King!
