A new website for Good Morning Guys!


GMG Guys Logo 1000 is geared at guys ages 10-20+ but can be read by any guy who wants encouragement in the Word!  So invite your sons, your son’s friends, grandchildren, or kids in the youth group to come join the guys as they read chapter by chapter, through the book of Joshua, along side the Good Morning Girls!

Good Morning Guys is also on instagram at and they’ll be using the hashtag #GuysInTheWord.

Let me introduce you to the writer – my nephew – Johnathan Mizener!

Johnathan writes:

My name is Johnathan Mizener. I’m Courtney Joseph’s nephew, and I’m so excited to be writing for the new Good Morning Guys Bible Study!


I’m 17 years old and a senior in high school at a small Christian school. I enjoy running, playing the guitar, eating ice cream, hiking with friends, anything related to cars, and just hanging out with my family.

Johnathan Collage

My mom, Jen, is Courtney’s sister, and she has been married to my dad, John, for 23 years. I also have 1 sister, Julianna, who is 14 and a freshman.

At my school I play on our worship team for our weekly worship services, run cross country, and serve on the student council. I also just returned from a truly life-changing missions trip to the Dominican Republic with 25 other students from my school, and it really gave me a renewed passion for missions around the world.

At my church, I play on the worship team and help with our monthly outreach to impoverished children in the inner-city. I love serving God’s people and I love to write, so I’m so thankful for the opportunity to write for this Bible study.

I pray this Bible study helps you to grow in Christ like never before, and if you don’t know God, I pray this Bible study will help bring you into a relationship with Him. That’s the most important thing to me, and to see young men like myself know God deeply and live for Him without holding back is a huge burden on my heart.

It’s time for us as young men to stand up and stand out from the world, and to be leaders to those around us. I pray this Bible study helps you do that!

We’ll be starting in the book of Joshua September 5th.

I hope you’ll join us as we grow in Christ!

I’m so thankful for Johnathan and I can’t wait to see how God works through this new on-line ministry.  Please spread the word and visit him over at

Here’s the Printable Bible Coloring Chart Bookmark

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

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

Here are the highlighters, pens and pencils I use:

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.

Order your Bible Study Journal NOW
to get it in time for the start of our study!

Available exclusively on Amazon.
{For ages 10-110}










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 Joshua
*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 Joshua

This companion Journal is NOT required to join us.

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!

All are welcome to join us anytime. There are no sign-ups or enrollments and we invite you to jump in right where we are.

Mark your calendars!

Spread the Word!

Share this post with your friends!

Are you in?

I am so looking forward to the start of this study! I’ll be posting more details soon!!

Until then…

Walk with the King,

  1. WOW! I wasn’t expecting your news to be anything like that. Oh Courtney, this is wonderful. Your nephew reminds me of my son and his leading Youth Groups and church activities when he was 16 , 17. The youth of our church were really drawn to him. He spent summers working at Lutheran Valley Ranch (LVR) ,in Colorado as an instructor.
    This will be great. I wish there was one for teenage girls and young women.
    Exciting news.

  2. Courtney!! This is so wonderful! I’m so happy to meet your awesome nephew and I will be praying God’s blessings on this new and much needed endeavour and for him. God is moving! I remember all those requests for something for the guys. Praise the Lord and may Good Morning Guys prosper to His glory!


  3. Yay! So excited! Jonathan, I pray God blesses your ministry. I was praying for something like this for my boys (12 and 10). I’ve been so blessed by Good Morning Girls over the years and I’m excited to see how God is going to use the Good Morning Guys ministry.


  4. Wow your nephew is an impressive young man! Your sister and her husband did a great job of raising him. My son and I got a bit behind with James (which was out first study together) but are almost finished. He would like to study Joshua with me. I’m excited about that and adding Good Morning Guys to the websites we allow him to go to.

  5. Courtney – I have a quick question. Is the Good Morning Guys appropriate for our husbands? Or more geared towards young men? Will the journal be appropriate for my husband? I am thinking if he doesn’t “fit” (or maybe want to join) in the online group he could at least use the journal to study with me.

  6. Hey Courtney, what a wonderful nephew you have!

    I would also like to ask you for the dates and chapters for the book of Joshua. I can’t seem to find it.

  7. CHILLS! What a fantastic idea considering so many have asked over the years! And to have a nephew join?! What a great idea! I’ll be praying for your ministry and for unity as this moves forward! How wonderful!

  8. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I’ve been looking for a way to bring my 11yr into the word and here’s my chance! Your nephew seems like a wonderful role model for my little one! I prayed for help with bringing him closer to God and he answered through you!

  9. Good Morning, I just purchased the journal for the Book of Joshua. I started following this Bible study a couple months ago, and I must say you ladies are GREAT!! I’m currently going through a divorce and my situation has brought me so much closer to God. thank you for all you do, you are truly my inspiration 🙂

  10. Wow this is great news. I did not occur to me that my daughter could do good morning girls . I find the questions a bit more adultly but maybe I will just make her read along . Thank you for doing this .

  11. I love, love, love seeing young people stand up and take leadership roles! He is 17 and writing and mentoring others? Fantastic! I’m 40 and can’t say the same…

  12. A study for young men–that is awesome! Looking forward to sharing with my son who is serving our military overseas. Thank you and your nephew for branching out to begin this–so needed for our guys to have this support as well.

  13. I am looking forward to the study of Joshua! This will be the 3rd study journal that I have used, Ecclesiastes, James and now Joshua! The SOAK method is fabulous. Thank you : )

  14. Thanks for this. The bible studies are so positively and spiritually life changing. I’m looking forward to doing them with my 10 year old son. This is great, I’m looking forward to it and so excited. ????

  15. So happy to be part of this. Have been looking for something like this. Makes me feel so good and blessed. I am trying to change some things in my life and this is definetly what Im in need of
