Introducing the Book of John

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 John. #Biblestudy #John #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

In case you missed the first announcement – here is our next Bible Study!!!

We begin Monday, January 14th in the Book of John!

If you are looking to join an open Good Morning Girls group or to start your own – please watch for more details regarding this coming in my next blog post. Until then…

The John Journal is available exclusively on Amazon!

Order it now to receive it in time for the start of our study.

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

Both journals have an identical interior.

Inside the journals you will find:

*An Introduction to the Book of John *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 John This companion Journal is NOT required to join us.

I can’t think of a better way to start out the new year

than in the book of John!

John is the fourth gospel and it is unlike the previous three gospels.  It is unique!  The book of John shows 7 signs and miracles.  6 of these miracles are not mentioned in the other gospels.   Also, there are almost no parables in John but it includes the seven “I AM” statements.  These statements are not included in the other gospels!  And finally, we will see our Savior and Lord lay his life down for us on the cross, rise from the dead and then walk and talk with his disciples one last time before sending the Holy Spirit. I can’t wait to see how God reveals himself personally to each of us as we read the book of John together!

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 Bible, switching back and forth between the New Testament and the Old Testament. So far we have completed 21 books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, Esther, Job, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Acts, Romans and James!  You can find ALL of the links to past studies on the GMG Resources Page. To keep track of all of the books you have completed use this printable below.  Notice there are no dates on any of our reading plans so anyone can join us anytime.

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).  You can find more pictures like this out on my Instagram page.

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:

  1. I’m looking for to this, Courtney. Thank you for all the hard work and time you put into organising all these bible studies. This will be my first with you. I have ordered the book from amazon and praying it arrives to Australia in time for me to start when you start 🙂 Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas.

    God bless you.

  2. Dynamic Catholic has also published a Bible study and DVD series for the Gospel of John called “Turning Point”. I had plans to start studying with my in-laws before your announcement so I’m super excited that you will also be reading the same Gospel. Now I don’t have to choose.
    God must have something planned for me.

  3. Hi Courtney, I have been with you since the beginning of ‘blogging through the Bible’, have we really done 21 books? Looking forward to studying John, a book I have not done before. Just need to order the journal and finish the last few days of Ruth before then! This will help me get back into the routine! Thank you for all the work you put into these studies,you are such an encouragement.

    1. Hi Susan,

      Wow! You have done all 21 books with me!!! That’s amazing! Thank you for sharing that – it is such an encouragement and blessing to me!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  4. I’ve been around since “blogging through the Bible” as well! I have folders with sub-folders in my email to stay organized and each study I’ve done has its own folder. They’re all under the umbrella folder “Women Living Well” in a folder named “Blogging Through the Bible”. I just created a John Study folder today!

    1. Nancy,

      Wow!!! I love hearing this and your system of how you have kept them all organized! That’s wonderful and so encouraging to me. So glad you are back for the book of John – I can’t wait to begin with you!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  5. Hi Courtney! Thought we’ve also done 1&2 Peter, 1 &2 &3 John, and Jude. I have them marked in my Bible with the year 2015 which is when I started reading the Bible cover to cover with you 🙂

    1. Hi Ines,

      You are correct! 🙂 We did do those books at the very beginning of the “Reading through the Bible” Series but I felt like we raced through them…so I want go back through them at a slower pace like I did the book of James – where we read half a chapter a day and we dig a little deeper – they are such good books! So when we get heavier into the Old Testament – like Isaiah and Ezekiel and some of those longer books – we will break them up with some of the shorter New Testament books like 1 & 2 Peter. I hope that will be okay with those who already read those at the very start. But It won’t be for a long while. 😉

      I’m so glad you have been here that long and are joining us again!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂

  6. Is it possible to get a printable PDF version of this? We are missionaries in Africa, mail takes several months to arrive, and at times never arrives. 🙁 I so enjoyed the printable Advent Bible study I just completed. Thank you!

  7. I have read your book women living well over and over. I can’t wait to join you all if i may for this bible study. Will you be doing a woman living well bible study? Do you have any of the bible study journals for women living well?
