All of the 1 Samuel Bible Study Materials in One Place {Including Open Groups, Resources for Leaders & Resources for Children}

Join Good Morning Girls as we read through the Bible cover to cover one chapter a day. Here are the resources you need to study the Book of 1 Samuel. #Biblestudy #1Samuel #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Do you want to grow closer to the Lord in 2017?  Then Good Morning Girls is for you!

Here at Good Morning Girls we provide all the resources you need to grow in your walk with God.  A new year has begun and it’s a great time to connect.  I want to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, grab a few friends and join us!

You can start a Good Morning Girls group that meets for coffee in real life every week or you can start a group that meets daily on-line.  You can use Facebook Groups, email, text messaging and more to connect!

We are here to sharpen each other.

Proverbs 2717 iron sharpens iron

We regroup here at GMG 3 times a year – summer, fall and winter.

You DO NOT have to have a group, to join our on-line Bible study.  I can be your accountability partner every Monday and Friday here on the blog if you’d rather not be in a group.

There are no sign-ups, enrollments or subscriptions required to join us.  No hoops!  (Although if you want to subscribe via email – you can do that along the sidebar of the blog here.)

Find a GMG Group Here

If you do not have a Good Morning Girls group – we invite you to CLICK HERE.  When you click this link you will open a document filled with links to GMG Groups waiting for you with open arms.

Find the category that best fits you (if none of them do – then join the group titled “Open to All”) and follow the instructions at the top of the page to join!

These groups are open until Sunday, January 8th (but don’t wait because groups will be full and closing before then)!

The groups are now closed. We will regroup again this summer.

  1. Helloo

    I’d like to sign up to lead a group but I’m not on Facebook, is there anther way to receive the leaders materials?

    Thanks so much

    1. Hi Verona!

      I’m so excited to hear that you want to lead!

      I just sent you an email with the Leader’s Manual attached. It is a large file so I hope it comes through.

      Lots of Love,

  2. If we have done it in the past, are we automatically still signed up to continue on through Facebook and emails.? I want both please. I’m so excited. I’ve missed you.

    1. Hi Pam,

      Yes – if you are already subscribed and following GMG on Facebook then you are set to go and you won’t miss a thing.

      I’m so glad to be back too!

      Happy New Year!
      Courtney 🙂

  3. Courtney,

    Thank you SO much for all the wonderful resources as well as all the hard work, time, effort and prayer you put into all this. You and your family are in my prayers daily. You’re such an inspiration! May you be blessed!


  4. I would like to sign up as a leader, but I am taking an extended break from Facebook. I feel as though it has pulled me away for God and that is not what he wants for me. I can lead a group via text or even email. How can I sign up for this?

  5. I’d like to start up with gmg again. I do not have a fb, but I do have email and phone. Would you help me get set up? Thank you for what you do. God bless !

    1. I would just like to be in a group not necessarily lead right now. I do not feel adequate enough for that right now. Thank you ????

  6. Happy New Year Courtney! So excited to start the new study as well as this new year! Looking forward to NEW growth in His word!! What a great combination of resources you have for us – THANK YOU & your team!


  7. Glad to jump back into this. And excited to see how God is going to continue to use you and your ministry this year.

  8. Hi, I am very interested in this study. However, I may not always be able to watch live and will have to do it on my own time. Will the videos be available anytime?

    1. Hi Meghan,

      I will post the printable for the discussion questions this Monday (and every Monday) on the blog. 😉

      So glad you are joining us!
      Courtney 🙂

    1. You can do an email group or find some of the free online forum sites to set up an online forum. To get your group listed see the post from Bridget Childress above.

  9. Hi Courtney. I have a group of ladies that I would like to lead. Would you be able to email the information to me?

    1. Hi Olivia,

      I emailed you the leaders manual. If you are facebook – come join our leaders group by clicking on the link above in the blog post.

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  10. I’m starting my first group as the Leader with my daughter in law’s. I hope it will draw us closer together and to God. I’m very excited!!!

  11. Hi Courtney,

    I would like to lead a group of ladies can you email me the info please.. my first time, and I am so excited

    1. Hi Damika,

      I’m so glad you are willing to lead! I emailed you the leaders manual. If you are on facebook – come join our leaders group by clicking on the link above in the blog post.

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney ????

      1. Dear Heather and Angela,

        Since the guide is a journal – it is much less effective in Kindle form so I do not offer it there. But every Monday, I’ll post lots of free resources along with videos and devotionals on Friday to help you in your weekly study. So all you really need is your Bible to join us.

        Sorry this is not available at this time.
        Much Love,

  12. I would like to join a study group, can you please tell me how to join step by step and what else I need to do since this will be my first time. Thank you and God bless.

    1. You can join the study by following along with the post on this site and then participating on Courtney’s Facebook or Instagram page daily.

      Or you can choose to join a small group to participate.

      To join a group click on this link

      In that document are various small groups.

      If you select an email group, send an email to the email address listed and tell them you want to join.

      If you select a Facebook group, click on the link for that Facebook group and on the top right click “Join Group”

  13. I am interested in leading a small group, but do not have a facebook account. I was wondering if I can still download the leader’s guide to I Samuel study.
    Thank you

  14. Hi. I am Shannon from Central Alabama. I happened upon this “by accident” (well you know Jesus did it)! I’ve been looking for a study to do with some friends. I never intended to lead but have found myself drawn to lead a study. It’s my first time and I’m very nervous. I pray I don’t mess up. What do you suggest I do in order to make this a success? I want to grow not good up. ???? God Bless, Shannon

  15. I’m a little disappointed that I miss the date for joining a group but I’ll definitely find a group for the next go round! Super excited to start 🙂

  16. Thank you so much for providing activities for children! I was wondering if you could provide a study that will appeal to pre-teen and teen girls ( and their parents lol). I could use all the help I can get in shepherding my pre-teen daughter. I know there are tons of resources out there but they don’t have your style! Also, more diversity on the book covers would be cool too!
    Thank you for all that you do!
