Angela and I have created a 3 month study plan that you can print out and slip into a 3 ring binder, notebook, Bible or post on your fridge!
We will study 2 verses a day, 5 days a week. The study method is called SOAP. First, you write out the Scripture (by the end of 3 months you will have written out the entire book of James!), then you will write down your Observations, Applications, and Prayers. The assignment should take about 10 minutes a day.
Here’s my James notebook!
Francis Chan says imagine you told your child – “Go clean your room.“
Then your child walked away and returned and said:
“I memorized what you said…I can say it in Greek! In fact, some of my friends are going to come over tonight and do a little study on what it would look like for me to clean my room!”
That scenario is absurd! Yet it’s easy to slip into that habit with our quiet times.
This James study is all about taking God’s word and applying it to our daily lives. Every Monday on my sister site, Angela will open up the week with a reminder of your assignments and her thoughts. On Wednesdays it’s your day to leave feedback and interact and on Fridays, I will be wrapping up the week with my recap of the scriptures through the lens of a wife, mom and homemaker.
Here’s the details(and hopefully the answers to some of your questions):
Who: Anyone who is looking to go deeper in their study of God’s word. The method we will use is a method I began using in the 4th grade with my mother…so even your children could do this with you!
What: You will need a Bible, notebook and pen.
Where: The study outline is on my sister site GoodMorningGirls.org – (you do not have to be a good morning girl or have a group to participate!)
When: Begins January 17th and ends April 15th (this is a 3 month study, 5 days a week)
Why: Because studying God’s word will change the entire course of your life!!!
I am praying some of you will join me!!!
My heart’s passion is to journey together as we walk with the King of Kings in our daily lives as he transforms us into Godly woman.
So hop on over to Good Morning Girls
and print out the James Book Club reading plan and join us January 17th!
Walk with the King!
