Introducing The New Fall Bible Study Titled: Rest and Release

Join Good Morning Girls as we read through the Bible cover to cover one chapter a day. Here is all the information you need for this new fall Bible study. #Biblestudy #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

It had been a month since I had slept through the night without waking too early and letting my mind race.

Due to emotional stress, I had lost about 15 pounds in 30 days and I struggled each morning to put one foot in front of the other. The shock of my husband moving out and my world turning completely upside down, did not change the fact that I had a full calendar. I had children to homeschool, meals to cook, and holidays to make special for the kids. I also had an on-line Bible Study to lead, as we began our study through the book of Job.

I remember hitting the red button to stop recording my Youtube for the study in Job. I smiled throughout the video and the minute I stopped the recording, I literally broke down in tears. Then I gave thanks to God that he held me throughout that video. He gave me words and strength to smile, in the midst of my very personal and private mess.

In time, days turned to months and months turned to seasons and seasons turned to a complete year passing. 2016 was the darkest year of my life and yet it was also my most intimate year with Jesus. It is out of that year of learning how to rest and release, that this study is written.

For years, I have practiced rhythms and routines in my home to maintain my walk with Jesus. It was these habits that were formed during the good times that maintained my emotional, mental, physical and spiritual life during the worst of times. So whether you are going through a happy season or hard season – this study is for you.

If your calendar is full and you feel tense, rushed and even panicked at times – this study is for you. We must stop overbooking ourselves and slow down to meditate on God’s Word and let the Psalms comfort us, the Proverbs counsel us, the Gospels draw us nearer to Jesus, and Revelation fill our hearts with hope.

God wants you to talk with Him about your struggles, pains, and frustrations, and give Him all your cares in exchange for His peace.

Because we do not rest, we miss hearing God’s voice. Psalm 23 comes to mind.

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

Are you experiencing the green pastures, the quiet waters, and the restoration of your soul that Psalm 23 speaks of, from resting with your Shepherd?

Remember how the crowds pressed in on Jesus everywhere He went? Everywhere He turned, there was a need unmet, and though there was so much to do . . . He withdrew to rest.

Luke 5:16 says, “But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray.”

If Jesus needed alone time with God, then certainly we do. Just think of the wisdom He wants to impart to you, the strength and the peace you may be missing out on.

Give yourself permission not to have your to-do list all checked off in order for you to rest and get alone with God.

Bible Study Details:

  • Monday through Friday, inside the Rest and Release Journal, I provide a verse of the day, a short devotional, a reflection question and space to use the SOAK method, to soak in the passage of scripture for the day.
  • Each Monday, here on-line, I will provide free resources to go with your study for the week, along with a practical challenge of something I do in my home that helps me rest and live blessed. I hope you will take the challenges. They do make a difference!
  • Each Wednesday, I will post a devotional here on the blog that corresponds with our scripture reading for the day, along with a discussion question for us to discuss in the comment section.
  • Each Friday, here on-line,  you will find 4 videos (one per week) that correspond with the scripture we are studying each week.  There is space inside your Rest and Release journal to take notes on each video.

This study begins on October 1st and is a 4-Week Bible Study.

I pray that your time spent in God’s Word will lead you to resting and releasing all of your burdens, so you can live a life of peace and freedom in Christ –no matter what you are facing.

Join me on this journey, as we walk with the King.

Courtney

  1. So excited to see you back and to start again with you. You are my FAVORITE! Praying sweet blessings and miracles over you and your family. 🙂

    1. Yes Lord thank you for covering Courtney and her family. Thank you for restoration, God Bless you Courtney. God is Awesome, Phil. 1:6 And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

    2. I’ve ordered the book. Haven’t done for a long time any bible study. So I’m exited to join this study.
      God bless???? Greeting????

  2. I will be doing this Bible study with you, Courtney!
    I’ve wanted to one of your previous studies, but there was always something going on… so I never joined.
    This time is different. I’m ordering the study journal now.
    Thank you!

  3. I want you to know how blessed I have been by your Bible studies. This summer I decided I needed to focus on getting myself in the word daily and stumbled across Women Living Well. I started with Ecclesiastes and am currently doing Proverbs and have already ordered the workbook for your upcoming October bible study. These studies have helped me to remain faithful to reading my bible daily and not just reading it but processing what I read. Thank you for taking the time and energy to provide women like me with these resources to help us grow in our walks with Christ.

  4. Oh sweet lady am I glad to see you back! I know this has been a hard season for you and your kids! I have prayed for you and know you have pressed into Christ during this time. Big hugs to you as you find your new rhythms ! Love ya!

        1. Hi, Courtney~ I didn’t realize you were going through so much!! I’m so sorry <3 This study is something I really need in my life now!!! I too had a bad year (2013)…though its been a few years I'm still healing from the pain of my husband having an affair (emotional…I think). We are still together but its been a difficult few years. Thank you Courtney for putting this study together!! I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers (((HUGS))).

    1. Hi Jayne,

      The journal is optional – but it is different than all of my other journals. It has a daily devotional included to make the study a bit deeper. So if you want to go deeper – I recommend the journal.

      Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  5. I’m glad to hear this exciting news. Our stories mirror each other’s. I just went thru a grueling 9 months, my divorce was final a week ago. I have realized that I am in a new season. One of rest and renewal. That book is closed, placed on the shelf and a new one is open with clean white pages waiting to be filled with adventures. But first rest is required. I need to lean into the Lord, rekindle the flicker of faith into a flame. Going through it drains every ounce of what you’ve got. I look forward to the intamacy with Jesus. Honestly the past few years my walk has been a crawl. So here’s to new…new season, new growth, new adventures! Thank you for being an inspiration to me.

    1. Dear Tricia,

      I am sorry for what you have been through. I’m so glad you are here and together we can take this journey toward a new season of rest.

      Stay strong!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

    2. My story was 2014. I thought the abuse I had suffered “so the kids wouldn’t have to go thru a divorce,” would be over when it was final. But when CPS came in and took the kids away for a time, I found myself at my lowest! The “carrying” by my Savior that I felt that year, is a closeness I will treasure always.

  6. So very glad to be doing another bible study with you. Your strength and faith are encouraging to all of us. God bless you.

  7. I am so excited that you have come back! I love your studies and can’t wait to participate in this one! I feel like this study is very timely for where I am right now.

  8. I have my journal and I’m so excited to be in this study! Even though I’m in a different season than many of you (I’m “old” lol!) I need to rest and release too!! Courtney, I have prayed for you every. single. day. since you posted your sad news. I’m so sorry that this happened, but I firmly believe that Romans 8:28 is true! What you and your family have gone through, and are still going through, is either preparation for something in your lives and/or ministries or a beacon of light and life in one whose life may be in a shambles as well. I have never spoken to you, have. Never met you personally, but I love you and I am so proud of who you are, who you are becoming and who you will eventually be!! Looking forward to October!

    1. Dear Kathy,

      Thank you so so so much for your daily prayers!

      Your comment blessed me tonight. Thank you so sincerely much!

      I really appreciate the encouragement.

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

    1. Hi Melinda,

      The journal is optional – but it is different than all of my other journals. It has a daily devotional included to make the study a bit deeper. So if you want to go deeper – I recommend the journal.

      Love,
      Courtney ????

  9. Hi Courtney
    Welcome back sweet friend! I have missed you! I still pray for you and your family and think and speak of you often,even though we’ve never met,you’ve had such a huge positive impact in my life and I shall be forever grateful to you for that.you got me through some very low points in my life as we prayed for a child and had the heartache of loss too.I thank God you are back stronger and more full of the Lord than ever! Shine on my friend! X

  10. Courtney,
    I also am so thankful to have this Bible study beginning. The year 2016 for myself was also one of the most difficult seasons I have walked through with God, and the Job Bible study I completed with the online group at the start of that year was my foundation of support with God that helped me endure what the year would eventually hold. My small family had been caring for my elderly grandmother since 2014, after she had fallen, fractured her pelvis, and then subsequently had a stroke that of course stole much of her life from her. We were her primary cargivers as she had legally asked us to be prior to her accident, and are always thankful for small ways that God provided for us (even this as an example). However, this we knew was the sunset of her life – my best friend, my sweet mother who played such a instrumental part of my childhood and growing up in an unstable environment. She and I were kindred spirits but I slowly day by day had to gradually say goodbye as she progressively weakened in spirit and mind. In June 2016, God called her home – so sweetly and gently when she peacefully went to bed that Friday night. Fast forward to the present, and I am pending the arrival of our second child, a girl (I already have a son who is 4) the first week of October …another sweet gift and answered prayer from God and I will be naming her in honor of my grandmother. In summary, this Bible study will help continue my growth and bring even more closure to that season I’ve been through. Thank you Courtney for enduring your hardships and being vulnerable enough to allow God to share your story and wisdom gained while leaning on Him through every storm. Your faith helps to strengthen mine!

    1. Thank you for sharing this with us. I’m so sorry for your loss Bonnie and I am so glad to hear that you are expecting! Congratulations!

      Thank you so much for your encouragement!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  11. I am eagerly awaiting this study. Sometimes, I want to take the time to rest and I am guilty of letting things in the way or telling myself that it will happen eventually, until I am completely exhausted. I am very happy that you are letting us into your life and using what you have learned to help us.

    I am so very sorry to hear about the struggles and rears that you have faced. And so awed by the God that has helped you through it all. Thank you for sharing.

  12. So thrilled that you are back Courtney!

    I was deeply shocked when I heard of your divorce. So, I can’t even imagine how you felt. :'( I’ve been praying for you and anxiously awaited your return. Even though I’m busy with full-time work and grad school, I still need to make time for our precious Lord! I look forward to this study and will be joining along with you!

    Xox,

    Kelly

    1. Hi Kelly,

      I’m so glad you are back too! I know you have been through so much and look how strong you are! You amaze me! Keep going and thank you so much for your prayer support.

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

  13. Another thought,

    Finding out your husband has been unfaithful is one of the worst feelings. ESPECIALLY when it happens around the holidays. I can relate to you there Courtney, because on Dec 20, 2011, I found out that my husband had been unfaithful 😮 Talk about ruining Christmas! Then, 4 months later, I got cancer!!! I felt like I was being seriously tested. Just like Job. Because of my faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, I got through that trial! And you and Sheila Wray Gregoire’s blogs helped me tremendoulsy!

    Still praying for you and your family! <3

  14. I am so excited to begin this study with you. The past studies have been such a blessing and help me to stay in the word. Thank you for all you have done for me and so many others. Glad to have you back!

  15. I am thankful you are back! You and your family have been in my prayers. I want to join this study, wondering if I will be able to follow it though. I will be bringing my daughter and helping her set up her and her husbands new home in Czech Republic. They are moving there for a few years following God’s leading to be missionaries. I will have limited internet access while I am there for the first two weeks in October. Will I be able to follow the study with limited internet (if any at all)?
    Continuing to pray for you and your family!

    1. Hi Datha,

      It is wonderful to hear that your daughter is going to the Czech Republic!

      All of the free resources, blog posts and videos for this study will remain available here on the blog after this study ends, so if you are not able to get internet while you are there – you can complete it when you get home.

      Thank you for your prayers!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  16. Welcome back sweet friend. I was tthrilled to see the nnotification this morning and am eager to work through this study with you.

  17. What a blessing to have you back, Courtney! Thank you for finding a way to share the glory of God with us out of the pain you’ve experienced. You truly are a blessing in so many lives.

  18. Yay you are back !! Missed you!! Can’t wait to start the Bible study!! Did not realize you were going through this struggle with your family, I will be praying for you!! Thank you for being here for us women so we can grow in Jesus!! Love you Joyce!!

  19. So happy to be doing the study with you. Continuing to pray for you and your family. I can’t begin to imagine how much you have been through.

  20. I discovered your site back in March when you did Luke– I discovered on the Sunday and you started Luke on the Monday. I truly believe God lead me here as I was seeking and craving some sort of direction to reading God’s Word. As a new follower it was a life line for me, and then naturally you took a break. But that didn’t stop me. I have been diligently working through your previous studies for the last 6 months. I’ve brought on other women with me as well and it’s been incredible. I’ve spent 6 months doing my own variation of what you did online, but this time– I’m ordering your book and I’m working through this study alongside you all. Thank you Courtney!

    1. Wow Stephanie – I’m so glad you found us in time for the book of Luke and I love hearing that you have been studying ever since! That is so wonderful!!!

      Keep it up!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  21. I’m so happy to read that you’re doing this study! Thank you so much. You and Mandi really helped me during a rough time a few years ago. I’ve been praying for you.

  22. I’m so glad that God has brought you back to the all GMG family! You and your kids have been in my prayers since you told us your news. So incredibly grateful and excited to see where the new journey leads us????

  23. SO thankful that you are back! I will definitely be joining you for the bible study. Continued prayers for strength and healing for your family! God bless you! Simone

  24. Thanks for this Bible study Courtney!
    Is it going to be available in Spanish?
    I understand English but prefer to do my Bible studies in Spanish!

    1. Hi Luisa,

      I think we will have it available in Spanish. If we do – I will be sure to share the link in a future blog post – so check back for more details on that. 😉

      Love,
      Courtney

  25. Courtney,
    My husband left us also at the end of 2015 and 2016 was a dark dark year. I relate to every word you typed. And I’m excited to be back and I’m glad you are as well! Excited to be a part of this 4 week study! Love and hugs to you girl! All the way from Nebraska

    1. Mandie,

      I’m so sorry to hear you have been through this too! OH it’s just so painful. I just want to send you lots of love and hugs and prayers tonight. Stay strong!

      Xoxoxo,
      Courtney

  26. Hi,
    So far, there is only the Kindle version available on Amazon Canada. Will there be a paper version available? It’s my preference.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Nicola,

      I’m sorry that Amazon.ca is delayed in getting the paperback version available. They have the info and I have to wait for them to release it. I have no idea how long that will take but I hope it will be soon. My apologies.

      Love,
      Courtney

    1. Hi Sarah,

      There are no sign-ups or enrollments for this study. I just encourage you to subscribe to the blog via email and be sure to join us back here for the start of the study on October 1st. 🙂

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

  27. Trials certainly tell you where your strengths are and what you weaknesses are also , my rough year was when my so was diagnoased with schizoaffective disorder, and now another year approaches which is hard as the hubby wants just a roommate relationship after all that not much is left but God is still in all things over all things and through all things

  28. I have never done one of your Bible Studies before, but I look forward to doing this one with you. I am so sorry that you have had to go through such a difficult situation in your life, but I have to say that because of the brokenness – you will be able to reach other broken people that you may not have had the opportunity to reach had you not gone through such a difficult time. I am one of those who have come to the place of feeling like I am totally broken and there is nothing left to break only to have something else happen and break even more- and I still struggle today. But praise be to God He is there every step of the way. Thanks again and I look forward to our study! Lisa :O)

    1. I’m so happy to start this study in October. I have my study guide already. Glad you’re back Courtney. You’ve been missed. ❤

  29. Wow I really need THIS! God’s timing is amazing. I am on my 5t month of my husband leaving me. He is saying he wants a divorce. My whole world is crushed and upside down. Can’t wait for this.

    1. I’m so sorry for what you are going through Angela. My heart breaks for you and I know your pain. Draw near to Jesus everyday – you are not alone. Remember Psalm 46:1: “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” He is with you and He loves you so much!

      Hugs,
      Courtney

  30. Thank you for sharing your talent and your story. I love your studies and your heart. I will be praying for you and your family.

  31. Welcome back! Missed you….looking forward to another “sitting, talking, listening/to with my Savior” time through you.

  32. Courtney I am so glad you are back!!!
    You were missed sooooo much. You have no idea. I have been following your Bible study for a few years and I am so blessed because of it. God is doing great things in your life even on the midst of your storm. Thank God for your obedience to Him.
    Now we can learn how to rest and release. God bless you and your family.

  33. Hi Courtney! I just have to say I was deleting emails and I almost accidentally deleted this. I stopped myself to read it and I am so glad I did.
    I want you to know we have very similar stories.
    I have a blog at Littlewomannotontheprairie.com
    And I homeschool, this is my 6 th year, but first year with classical conversations!
    I have been praying for a ministry for years and recently my husband moved out. We have been married 19 yrs and we are really struggling now. We have 3 children.
    I have been learning to walk through this intense pain and trust God in a whole new way. I’m learning to surrender my fear and control and let God be God.
    It is scary And I am praying for my husband. I love him, but I cannot control his choices. I would love to chat with you about healing. God Bless you.
    Jen steele

    1. Jen, I don’t even know you, but I was scrolling down to leave a comment of my own, and somehow yours caught my eye. I don’t have the words to say, but I am praying for you!

      1. Laura as tears are rolling down my cheeks I thank you so much! It’s amazing how God brings people into our lives and hearts. When I feel my loneliest, I read this comment! Thank you! It is a road I never wished to travel, but I do trust God and know he has a plan!
        Thanks again!
        Jen

    2. Dear Jen,

      I’m so sorry for you what you are going through and I am saying a prayer for you and your family today. I know the crushing pain you are feeling and how things are completely out of your control. I’m so glad we can trust in a God who is in complete control. I am praying for your protection and provision today.

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

    3. Jen,

      I understand the scariness and what you are feeling. My marriage of 25 years ended a year ago. The pain still grips my heart. As you draw closer to God, the Holy Spirit will speak “life verses” into your heart that will become your rock of strength. I like to think of it as His everpresent promise in the midst of uncertainty. My verse has been Jeremiah 29:11. They “why’s” quickly became, “Place me where You will have me for the purpose and plan You have for me. I am yours.” Much love to you! Susan

  34. Courtney, thank you so much for this bible study! I bought it a little over a week ago, right after we had moved and were about to start our first year of homeschooling. When I read the first devotional, I just bursted into tears, because I have definitely become a Martha. I’ve blamed it on having three young kids (5,4,&1) and just being so tired and worn out, but the truth is, it’s all about priorities. Even starting with just a few minutes a day before my baby gets up. Thank you for letting the Lord use you!

  35. Courtney! It’s soooo great to have you back! You have been missed.

    And I want to thank you for this! My husband ordered it for me the other day and has been tracking it daily.

    I struggle daily with decisions I made years ago that affected my ex-husband and children. To this day, I regret how I handled the situation and how horrible of a person I was. Because of the way I mucked everything up. To this day I feel that I am being punished and I struggle knowing that I am forgiven, even though I don’t know how to forgive myself.

    My husband tells me all the time to relax and just breathe, but I can’t. I work a full time job plus manage our two businesses. If I stop, my mind goes to all the bad memories that I try daily to forget and try to remember the good. I constantly have to have noise around me, I have to have people or “stuff” to get through the day. I don’t know how to just stop and be.

    I’m hoping with this study that I can learn how to relax and know that I am loved, I can forgive myself, and I can just be still.

    Again, thank you so much for opening yourself up and letting everyone in. Know that you are loved and we pray for you and yours!

    1. Dear Amy,

      I just want you to know that I said a prayer for you today. God wants to release you from all of the pain and sorrow and regret you feel. You are free through his blood that covers all of your sins and mistakes. He loves you so very much. Rest in that truth today Amy.

      I’m so glad you are here and joining us in October for Rest and Release.
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

      1. Thank you so much Courtney. You have no idea what that means to me. As always, I’m looking forward to this new study!

  36. I have never commented before, but I have been reading this Bible study for a pretty good while. And I am so very sorry for the pain you have been going through. So glad to see you back and it could not have been at a better time. I need this so very much.
    I to am going through a very trying time and have so many questions for God. I know his ways are higher than mine and I may never get any answers.
    I just lost my grandson that I raised, because his mother (my daughter) was killed in a car accident. I have drifted out of church and lacked reading my Bible and praying. So naturally, I automatically blame myself for this happening.
    I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the time and effort you put into this website. It has helped so many people including myself. I have a granddaughter left is all, that I haven’t been able to be there with because she lived out of town, with her dad. She is 16 and we are going to do this study together. Please say a prayer for us, that we can get to know one another through this.
    I started the Job reading study today to be in until this study begins.
    THANK YOU FOR ALL THE INSPIRATION AND INFO THAT YOU LEAVE ON THIS WEBSITE FOR US TO LEARN ABOUT OUR SWEET SWEET JESUS. I HAVE LEARNED A LOT THROUGH THIS WEBSITE.

  37. I’m so sorry for the rough year. I pray God meets you daily & strengthens & gives you peace & joy in place of mourning.

    This study is perfect timing for me. I just told my lifegroup how I’m already being drawn to studies on rest (but we’re in the middle of a different one so I said they’re for later), & that I clearly need some, but I’m getting ready to lead a busy Fall schedule of groups instead. Maybe I can fit this in somehow, so I cam also be encouraged to rest! ???? I know I need it & hope I can stick to it. Thank you for your ministry!

  38. Courtney
    God bless your ministry. I want to say thank you for doing all that you do. Thanks to your bible studies I was able to draw nearer to Christ and study his word daily. This message really hit home for me because we are just one month into the school year and I began to loose site of Him. I got overwhelm and ended here on your blog. I’m thinking God has lead me right back to where I needed to be with other like minded women who hunger for Christ. Pray for me and I will pray for you. See you all in October 1. Anxious to see why God has in store.

    1. Hi Renee,

      I’m sorry for my delay in responding! I’m so glad God led you here and I am saying a prayer for you now. I can’t wait to begin this journey with you on October 1st. 🙂

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

  39. I would like to join this study. Do I need to do anything to officially sign up other than get the journal? Thank you!

    1. Welcome Julie,

      There are no signups or enrollments for this study. Just come back and join us on October 1st! I can’t wait to begin!

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  40. I’m excited to be joining. My counselor recommended it.

    My struggles don’t amount to those of you with families and kids. But I’m struggling as a single person working two jobs just to make ends meet. I’m just soooo exhausted with life. People in my life feel like since I’m single I must have all this extra time to give to them. They don’t understand why I don’t visit more often. I feel like my daily life just runs nonstop. I want to hit a pause button for six months.

    I’m hoping this will help me. And I love the fact it’s on line and I can work at my schedule.

    1. Welcome Sheila!

      I’m so glad you are here and joining us! I can’t wait for October to begin. It sounds like you are overdue for a break. You are not alone here. See you back here October 1st. 🙂
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

  41. Courtney, I am thrilled and thankful that you are back online with your new Bible study! Thanks also for your transparency about your personal struggles and pain of the past year. I look forward to being a part of this online community again; it has been a source of encouragement and growth for me.

  42. Hi Courtney
    A friend of mine recommended your site as I am going through my own struggles. My ex tried to sue me for custody of my son by painting me in a very false and salacious light. It has been the fight of my life and its only just beginning. I had a lot of friends give me prayer and verses to get through this trying time but I feel like I need more. I am also working full time and doing night classes for my eMBA so I hope that I do not over extend myself by adding a study to this. I feel like I am out of balance, off kilter….missing my center since all of this happened and I know I need God to get me back on track. I am looking forward to this study.

    Thank you!

    1. Welcome Brittanie,

      I’m so glad you are here! I’m so sorry to hear about struggles you are facing right now. I am saying a prayer for you now.

      Lots of Love,

  43. Courtney, I have been away for so long. So much has painfully changed (I no longer home school my oldest, my husband has cancer, some extended family relationships havev broken down). In this oh-so-fallen world, things can (and do) change in an instant. But Jesus NEVER changes. He NEVER fails us. He knows what it is like to be US (how comorting that is). Sweet lady, my prayers have gone up for you, and your heartache has mattered to so many. I am THRILLED to begin this study with you, and to renew my seat under your leadership. What an amazing woman of God you are. Truly, you show us by example, how to navigate this life in His presence. THANK YOU, and I am so looking forward to spending time with you again. Peace! ~Toni

    1. Hi Toni,

      So good to see your name pop up here! I’m so sorry for the hard things you have been facing. 🙁 Amen – and yes – our Jesus never changes – he is faithful and true!

      Keep serving Him!

      So glad you are joining me for this study!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  44. I am so excited your back! I missed this blog and study so so much! Thank you for this wonderful ministry and teaching all of us to walk with the king! I admire how you have faithfully followed the Lord through your trial and paused when he told you to pause! However I’m really glad you back! You will be in my prayers I pray you continue to receive your strength through our Lord. ❤️

  45. I’m so happy to have found this today. I flip back forth through the Christian blogs I have bookmarked to find a study or inspiration to feed my soul. Found it!
    Thank You Courtney!

  46. This year I’m unable to do my typical Bible study at my church due to my daughter’s school schedule and son’s evening soccer practices. I have been looking for something to do on my own and this popped up on my feed. Yeah! I’m sorry you’ve been in a hard season and at some point we always see God’s providence through the struggle. Praying for all of us as we start up the study next month.

  47. Hello,
    My name is Cierra I am new! I just ordered your book. I am looking forward to this bible study! I am a wife and mother to four children ages 10 to 3. My 7 year old daughter has a very rare and progressive disease. She is wheelchair bound and tube fed. My husband works all night and sleeps all day. I am 100% on my own taking care of everything. I am so stressed and tired. My soul is tired. Praying to fix That!

  48. Courtney,
    Dear sweet sis I am praying for you. I am going through some deep waters right now and I need this study. You are of great encouragement to me right now. So excited and looking forward to this study!

    Love you sweet sis????,

  49. Welcome back Courtney! I searched and searched for a “replacement” for your bible studies and there is nothing that compares. I’m glad so many prayers were answered for you, even if not the one on the top of the list. God is so very good and you will lead so many people to His arms with your new studies. God bless you and your family.

  50. One more question ….
    When one says “biblical grounds for divorce” does that mean a personal reason for filing a civil divorce, or is it a religious divorce within the church. Just asking, because in my faith (Catholic) in order to be religiously free from your marriage one has to try to obtain an annulment- a lengthy process with few grounds. If one is divorced without an annulment they are no longer allowed to participate in the sacraments of the church. It is very trying and difficult, when one is the victim of an unfaithful spouse…

  51. Hi Courtney, so excitd to see you back again. I was wondering are you going to have it so we don’t have to order the workbook, and you will have the verses posted somewhere on line for the October study? Thanks, so excited to be with y’all again.

    1. Hi Ingrid,

      I will be posting the verses and reflection questions every week here on the blog but this Study Guide is different from my journals as it has daily devotions inside. So I recommend the study guide to go with the study. 😉

      So glad you are joining us!
      Courtney

  52. I got referred here by Time-Warp Wife, so I am a little confused. Do you need to order the book or will you have everything on the blog? I would like to follow this plan but need to know.

    1. Welcome Judi,

      The study guide is recommended as it has a daily devotional inside plus space to answer the daily reflection question and a place to write out the scripture, observations, applications and prayers for the day. ???? What I offer on the blog will supplement the study guide. 🙂

      So glad you are joining us!
      Courtney 🙂

  53. I can’t wait to do this Bible study! I am using your Ecclesiastes study now and am loving it. Will there be another Bible study after this one? I certainly hope so!

    1. Hi Lisa,

      Yes- I will return to the Blogging Through the Bible Series in January of 2018. So Lord willing, there are many more Bible studies to come! 🙂

      Lots of Love,
      Courtney

  54. I would like to join up for this Bible study and I pray that this is where I need to be, for this season. Is there anything that I need to do to join? I ordered the book. Thank you.

    1. Welcome Niki,

      If you have the book -you are all set. If you aren’t subscribed via email yet – you may want to do that so you don’t miss any of the posts. You can find the subscription button in the left margin if you are on a desktop computer or at the bottom of the comment section, if you are on a wireless device.

      So glad you are joining us!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  55. Courtney,

    Is the any possibility of releasing the resources a day earlier? We are part of a small group in Australia and would love to start on our Monday.
    Thank you for the work you do. I’ve been with the group for 3 years and love it!
    Blessing to you and yours
    Shirley

  56. So I just found your book and plan to order it, are the additional resources still available to view?
