Introducing the Book of Mark

Join Good Morning Girls as we read through the Bible cover to cover one chapter a day. Here the information you need to study the Book of Mark. #Biblestudy #Mark #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Spring is almost here and I am SO excited to announce our next study!

We begin our study in the Gospel of Mark on Monday, March 7th!

Our Bible Reading Plan will line up nicely with Easter.
This book is perfect as we prepare our hearts for Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday.

This study will run from March 7th to March 28th.

The optional Mark Journal is available now exclusively on Amazon!


I have worked hard to keep ministry costs low here at GMG.
I hope you find the Journal affordable at just $8.09.


We also have a Good Morning Guys Mark Journal
for your sons ages 10 and up.

The cost is just $6.99!

Both journals have an identical interior. My hope is that we will not only get into the Word ourselves but also get our sons and daughters into the Word as well.  Let’s disciple the next generation!

Inside the journals you will find:
*An Introduction to the Book of Mark
*An explanation of how to use the signature S.O.A.K. method of the GMG’s
*The GMG Coloring Chart
* The Verse of the Day each day
*A Reflection Question for each day
* Blank space for SOAKing each chapter of the Book of Mark

This companion Journal is NOT required to join us.  

If you are new, welcome to Good Morning Girls!
We are so glad you are here!

We are Reading Through the Bible – one chapter a day – five days a week.

There are no sign-ups or enrollments.

We are reading the books switching back and forth between the New Testament and the Old Testament.

So far we have completed:

Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Esther, Job, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, Matthew, Acts, 1 & 2 Peter, 1,2, & 3 John and Jude!  You can find all of the links to past studies on the GMG Resources Page.

This is a wonderful method that slows us down and helps us soak in every single word.

Here’s what it looks like in my Bible (and some of yours).


Still not sure how this all works? Here is a video explaining it further.

Here are the highlighters, pens and pencils I mentioned in the video:

Highlighters – Acid Free – Bible Hi-Glider
Fine Line Non-bleeding Pens – Micron Archival Ink and Multi-Colored Gel Pens
Colored Pencils – Crayola Twistables and Crayola Colored Pencils
I use the ESV Inductive Study Bible as my personal study Bible.

Here’s the Free Printable Short eJournal for Mark

This is for those who are not purchasing the Paperback Journal.  This is not the same as the Paperback Journal on Amazon.

This eJournal has been created for low-cost printing on a home printer and does not include the Introduction to Job, Verses of the Day or Reflection questions.

Did you know GMG is also translated into 14 languages?

Check out our GMG International Page where you will find links to GMG Blogs and Facebook Ministries in: Croatian, German, Dutch, Romanian, Norwegian, Belgium, Kenyan, Philippines, Spanish, Italy, Indonesia, Portuguese, Sweden and Slovenian!

Accountability works in reaching our goals – the encouragement of others keeps us going on days when we’d rather quit!  Good Morning Girls will provide the accountability you need to soak in God’s word daily, grow in your walk with God and live well!

Mark your calendars!

Spread the Word!

  1. I’m in! It is going to be GREAT walking with the Lord as we journey together through the book of Mark. Job has been tough at times, but a blessing as we see the coming encounter with the Almighty One. Thank You, Courtney & Staff for ALL YOU DO!!!

  2. Wow, I can’t believe how many books we have already read. I think we started Sept 2014? Is that right? If so, we are about at the the half way point of the 3-year reading plan.

    I can’t believe that happened so fast. I thought, 3 years, that is a long commitment, but the time has just flown by and I am getting more than I ever had out of the study of God’s word.

    I am so grateful God put this idea on your heart and appreciate you being faithful to continue to put the time and commitment into this.

    1. TBG,

      I am so thankful for all of your wise input through out this series!

      You are correct – we began in Sept. 2014 – time is flying! I thought back then it’d take 3 years but I did not figure in the breaks in between…so I think it’s going to take longer. Just wanted to forewarn you. 😉

      So glad you are joining us again!

  3. I ve been looking for something like this so I’m so glad the Lord has sent this to me. Looking forward to beginning the March reading.

  4. I am loving this study method. My OCD is kicking in. 😉 can you let me know how long of a break until the study after Mark (if also the book)? I use weekends and breaks to catch up and i still have exodus and leviticus to study.

    I find i like the colored sections of my bible so helpful even in church on sundays. I can clearly see the catagory of the verse while the pastor talks. It gives a new dimension to sunda mornings. So awesom working through the bible this way!

    1. Hi Gwen –

      We will finish the book of Job this Friday Februrary 26th and then be on break for one week – until Monday, March 7th when we begin the book of Mark. Then there will be about a 2 week break until we start the next book on April 11th.

      Hope that helps!
      Courtney 🙂

        1. Hi Wendy – I have not revealed the next book yet – I will on the blog in about 2 weeks – but I’ll tell you here since you asked. 😉 We have completed – Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers – so next up is Deuteronomy! Summer is a big surprise – I have something special planned! Yay!


  5. Hi, if I am new and just going to start with the Book of Mark, does that make sense for me as a new believer? Or should I go back to the beginning where you started? If I do just start now how do you suggest I go about doing what I missed? At the end? Or? Thank you for your help. This looks amazing.

      1. Yes I probably will be doing it by myself. I know so little and just am not sure if maybe I should just start at the 1st study on here and work my way forward. I know it says you can just jump in but is that the “best” way to do this?

        1. Hi Debbie!
          If you decide you would like to study with a group, I have an email group and I would love for you to join us! Or, I could be your study buddy if you would like it just 1-on-1. Welcome to Good Morning Girls! This is a great community!!

          1. Hi Teresa
            I have been doing the book of Job Bible study
            Got in to late to join a group but want to ask if your email group
            is open?? I will start the book of Mark with GMG
            I’ve been following on facebook but have not been sharing my soak
            since they have been 2-4pages long , but love reading other girls insight

        2. I think the gospel of Mark is great place for a new believer to start. It let’s you examine Jesus’s ministry and teachings and leads into the resurrection story – the crux of our faith.

          Welcome to the family. So blessed and inspired to see new believers with a desire to study the Word.

  6. Hi! Just found this and am excited to start this reading plan. Looks interesting. Been really needing something like this.

    God bless you!

    1. Christine, you are most welcome to contact me if you would like to join in with our group as we begin the study of Mark! New sisters in Christ are always welcome!

  7. hello will there be discussing questions for Mark? If so when will they come out? I am trying to set up my notebook for the study.

    1. Hi Sharon,

      Yes, there will be daily discussion questions and verses of the day posted here every Sunday night for the upcoming week.

      So the first set will go up Sunday evening, March 6th. 😉

  8. I just started a GMG group with some of my nearest and dearest ladies! We can’t wait for the start of the new book!!! this site has inspired and spoken to me so much as i return to God, my faith and my bible!!! thank you for being here and thank you for all you have done and continue to do! this is just amazing!!

  9. I haven’t ever participated in a study with GMG so I am really excited to join in on this one. Thank you for your hard work. I ordered the journal so I am super excited!!!

  10. Dear Courtney,

    How do I join a group for the study of Mark? Last time I missed it for Job so I just want to make sure I sign up on time this time. Thank you!

    1. KC, you are welcome to contact me and join in with our group for this upcoming study of the book of Mark. We welcome all sisters in Christ to study with us.

      1. Hi Sheila I am looking for a email or accountability group. I am looking for a group where I can share on the prescribed chapter or share whatever I am reading in the Bible. My email is

  11. I began to read my Bible daily last October. I had tried before to go straight through, but Leviticus is not a cliffhanger, folks. I did my research on how to go about studying properly. I found your color guide as start. Love. It. Being the detailed person that I am, and the 16 pack of twistable colored pencils I got for this endeavor, I have expanded the color code a bit. But that’s how I learn. I am excited that Mark is next on your list! I just started it myself! But I want to follow with you this time, rather than tag along @ instagram. Headed to Amazon!

      1. My Mark journal will be here Monday! WooHoo! My birthday is Friday and I believe that I will have a brand spanking new study Bible (never had one before) to go along with Mark study.

  12. I have been following you for awhile, but Job was the first study I have done. I am so grateful I found you girls, such an inspiration and blessing! I am so excited for the book of Mark!

  13. Hi, I’m a first timer with GMG, I learned about this site while reading Women Living Well. I am looking forward to the Mark Study and hope to find a group to join in with.

  14. I would also like to join in on reading Mark together. I do not have Facebook, instagram, or any other social media. Is there a way to subscribe to a blog or participate in a way without using social media?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Amy,

      I’ll be here on the blog every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. So just join us right here. You can subscribe to this blog – via email – along the sidebar of the blog.

      So glad you are joining us!

  15. I live overseas and would like to know if you could make a pdf downloadable version of the journal? I would like to purchase but don’t want to deal with the hassle of getting it shipped through Amazon. It would be nice to offer online purchase and instant download. I live in Abu Dhabi, UAE and a few ladies and I participated faithfully in a few studies last year. We would to continue and it would nice to have these journals for our sessions. Thanks for your wonderful work.

  16. I am so excited, Mark will be my first Chapter with GMG!! I’m ready! And Courtney, I just purchased your book and started reading, I LOVE it!!! I hope you will consider writing another!

  17. Courtney I just want to say that the Lord has blessed you with a beautiful gift that you have shared with us all. A place online to learn and share and be blessed by the Lord. I never thought that a online study could work. It sure does! I have been a part of GMG for quite a few years and for the most part have been so blessed. Some of the groups I was in no longer exist, and some of the ladies I am still in touch with, from all over the world. What a beautiful blessing this group is. Thank You. God bless you abundantly in all that you do, may He lead you and guide you in all that you do. And I really love that you have opened up the daily studies to a full chapter. It gives each person the opportunity to share whatever jumps out at them from a whole chapter. It allows the Lord more freedom to lead me individually. Just wondering, is it your policy that only the prescribed daily chapter be shared in the email group setting? I have been in groups where it was very welcomed to share whatever God was putting on the hearts of the ladies from scripture. The last group I was in, it was only ok to share in the main feed the specific chapter study, it was very sad for me, to the point that I left that group. I just wanted you to know. However I haven’t given up, I am still here searching for Gods best for me.
    Thanks again

    1. Hi Ingrid,

      Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. I’m sorry that your last group was not a good fit.

      I leave it up to the leaders of the groups to decide what is best for their group but usually it works best if everyone is sharing about the same passage of scripture. Some leaders are more flexible than others and some groups are bigger or smaller and what works in one does not work in another. If you aren’t able to find a group that is a good fit – I encourage you to start your own group. I know that would be a blessing to others. 🙂

      Lots of Love,

  18. I’m ready! Thanks to my girlfriend, Janice, for thinking of me. At the beginning of the year I decided to read my bible consistently everyday; I started with the book of Acts. I wasn’t consistent with “everyday”,but I did complete it. I am now reading Romans. This, I feel, will be much better, because I am now accountable. Again, thanks for a great idea in doing this.

    1. Welcome Wenda,

      I’m so glad to hear you are joining us and that’s great that you have been reading in Acts and Romans – I love those books of the Bible.

      See you back here on Monday!
      Lots of Love,
