Where Are You Joining Us From?

It is truly amazing the way the family of God can connect around the world through the internet!  One day – we will all be together in heaven and I can’t wait to meet you all there!

But until then – let’s introduce ourselves here!

If you are joining us, for the 1 Samuel Bible Study
(that begins here on January 9th),
where are you joining us from?

Whether this is your first time here or you have been joining us for years – would you leave a comment on this post and tell us the city, state, or country you are joining us from?

I know it will be encouraging for everyone to see that we do not take this journey alone.

God does not want us alone!

God created the church to be a family – we need each other!

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
~Galatians 6:10

One of the exciting things that has been happening at Good Morning Girls – since the day we began in 2010, is that we have a group of women who translate our resources into their first language and take these studies to their home countries.

This International Ministry began here at Women Living Well, when a lady from Germany emailed me and asked if she could translate my fall series for her blog. I said yes and from there – new translators joined us and soon began translating for Good Morning Girls. This ministry has grown and multiplied since 2009!  Now these ladies translate the reading plans, verses of the day, discussion questions, my blog posts and some of them transcribe my videos.  They are amazing servants of God’s Word!

I want to share these ladies with you.  

Will you pray for them as they minister in their countries this winter?

I did a search in hopes of finding a group of women who do the same. Do you have any information or direction you can give me?

    One thing I’ll say to the new people-just do your best! Something you’ll never find here is criticism or judgement if you miss a day or week or more! You’ll always be welcome to join in for discussion as your able. Courtney really does a wonderful job of encouraging us to stay the course and, in true Jesus fashion, will ALWAYS welcome us back if we miss something. It’s a truly wonderful ministry and bible study group 🙂

  21. I joined GMG while living in Dubai, now I am back home on the south coast of England. These studies are great and keep me accountable. Love reading other people’s comments, so helpful.

  22. Hi everyone! I’m joining you from Newcastle upon Tyne in the North-East of England, UK.
    I stumbled upon Good Morning Girls this time last year when I was looking for a different way to read the Bible, after I realised that using pre-written notes was allowing me to skim through without really engaging mind or heart. I’ve been really blessed over the past year by learning the colouring and the SOAK method. Illness towards the end of the year meant I missed out on the studies in Judges but I’m looking forward to restarting with 1 Samuel next week!

  23. Hi All! I am in Canberra, the capital of Australia. I am a member of one of the international GMG groups. This has been our third Christmas study together. Our group has members in six different countries and lots of different time zones – it is always morning for someone in our group!!

  24. I’ve been blogging through since you started in September 2014. I’m a missionary in Germany and I love doing this Bible study!! Thanks.

  25. Hi Good Morning Girls, I am joining you from Upper Marlboro, MD. I have been with GMG on and off for a few years. Look forward to going thru the journey of 1 Samuel with you.


  26. Hi, my name is Stacy and I’m from Compton, California.

    Good job ladies and thank you for all you do.

    God Bless!!!

  27. I live in the UK and I’ve been doing the studies for over 2 years. I’m looking forward to this study as a way to reconnect with God in the new year.

  28. I’m joining from Moshi, Tanzania. I have been part of this group for two years now and I’m looking forward to studying I Samuel … I have read the book many times for specific stories but this will be first time slow down and focus on the whole book.

    1. There is a Good Morning Guys study, Courtney’s nephew leads them. I’m sure you can find more info here on the blog. Good Morning Girls is a women’s ministry.

  29. I have been here since the beginning, so looking forward to First Samuel. I will be joining in from Indiana.

    1. I’m joining from Wales, WI, USA! Wales, WI is an early Welsh settlement – settled in the 1840s by Welsh immigrants. http://www.vi.wales.wi.gov/. Most of our roads are towns or streets in Wales, UK, I think: Cardiff, Swansea, Lochtyn Ridge, Cregennan Bae, Taliesin, etc.

  30. This is amazing! As I am reading through the introductions, I am envisioning the Miss America Pageant where every contestant approaches the stage ready for the experience of a lifetime. With beautiful smiles on their faces and anticipation in their hearts, they introduce themselves with confidence and pride. So. . . “Hello, my name is Tory Shirley and I am from Collinsville, Mississippi. I am a wife, mother to 4 girls, and assistant principal to 750 elementary (K-4) children. I am excited about this study and I am looking forward to meeting so many beautiful women who seek not only relationship with each other, but relationship with the one true KING!”

    1. its so funny that you said this….I was thinking “hearing” the same thing as I read through these comments!
      Praise the Lord for the Word of God being studied throughout the whole world!!

  31. Since 2013. I love the studies here with the ladies. Looking forward to 2017 and the new book of 1Samuel???? I tell all my friends about you ladies and even tell them to do the study. I’m from Ventura,California and I keeped studying when I moved to Everett,Washington.
    thank you ladies for all you do

  32. I have been with the Good Morning Girls study since the beginning. It’s pleasantly overwhelming to look back on the last (nearly) three years and see the change that has developed in me. So Courtney, from the outskirts of the small town of Fountain Inn, SC, thanks so much for this great and wonderful blessing! Love you sister!

  33. This is my first time ever doing something like this. I currently don’t have a church and am struggling to find my way back. I thought particpating in a Bible study would help me find my spiritual self. I live in a small town in North Carolina and don’t know alot of people so I am hoping this will be a way to connect with other Christian women. Looking forward to beginning this journey with all of you.

  34. Hello,
    My name isTiffany and I am joining you all from Dayton, Ohio! I am excited to start this GMG study with you all! I have been doing them off and on but I want this year to be a year of growth with the Lord and other Christian women! God bless you ladies!!

  35. I’ve been with you for several years now. As mother of 2, instructional coach prek-5, youth director, and so much more, reading a chapter a day helps to keep me grounded! I will join from Waynesboro, VA.

    1. Fiona! I had the most wonderful pleasure of visiting your beautiful country in July! My church was there on a mission trip and we stayed in Noordhoek at what they call the Team House for 2 nights! I was wondering if there was anyone from South Africa that was doing this study! When we left Noordhoek, we were in Belhar for about 5 days…I love your beautiful county and the people we met there were amazing!

  41. I started a bible study last year, but unfortunately did not finish it! I’m praying for a more obedient walk with the Lord this year and trusting the Lord to follow through to the end on this new bible study in the book of 1 Samuel. I’m joining from Burgaw, NC.

  42. I’m joining you from South Africa – Cape Town. I’m really looking forward to joining my sisters again. I’ve been part of GMG since 2014 and it’s a blessing to be part of this life changing community!

  44. I’m Nancy and I’m joining in from Plymouth, MI. I’ve been participating in theses studies in various ways since 2012. I have to be honest, though. My participation now is pretty much just reading the blog posts and saving each email in a special study folders for more actual study “later”

  45. I am excited to read through 1 Samuel with so many Godly women from around the world. My first study was the Proverbs 31 and it was life changing. As a military wife, I have moved 4 times since following Women Living Well in 2011 and your ministry really helps me remain focused on God while looking for a new church family. I currently live in Suffolk, Va.

  46. Hi! I’m from Piedmont, Oklahoma! This is my first time and I am so excited to see what God has planned for me.

  47. I have been following GMG for a couple of years now. Usually from the west coast of Canada but now from Ottawa. This is a great way for me to stay on track even when military postings cause us to start over someplace new.
    I hope this is a blessed year for all!

    Hugs and Prayers.

  67. I’m joining you from Mobile, Alabama. This is my first Bible study with GMG. I have not been able to participate in the group in my church because of schedule conflicts for the last few seasons. I have missed the accountability and challenge. I’m looking forward to this study. Thank you!

Thanks be to God for providing this wonderful place of connection and reflection!

    and who ever works with you enough for the love and time you put in this together. My name is
    Sandra and I live in Suffolk, Virginia.

  76. I am from Allentown, PA. I have been doing these studies with Good Morning Girls since 2011. The Book of Proverbs, the first time of the Proverbs 31 Woman. The study had impressed me so much because this part of scripture was such a sore spot for me because I had always felt I could never measure up to her. But after doing the study with Courtney I realized that I could only do it with the Lord’s help and OH how he has helped me through all the studies since. I feel I have grown by leaps and bounds , but still have so far to go yet. Courtney , your guidance and accountability have helped me stay focused and growing in God’s Love, which you show to all. Can not wait till we start 1 Samuel and we see what more we can all learn and how much more we can grow.

It has been great to have the accountability and support of a group that meets daily through a facebook group to talk about God’s word.
