Introducing the New Winter 2019 Bible Study
Cue the confetti!!! It’s time to announce the NEW Winter 2019 Bible Study!
Drum roll please…
It’s the book of John!
I can’t think of a better way to start out the new year than drawing closer to Jesus – our Savior – through the study of one of the most beloved books of the Bible – the Gospel of John! We will read one chapter a day, through the book of John together.
This study begins on
Monday, January 14th.
The optional John Journal is available NOW
exclusively on Amazon!
Inside the journal you will find:
*An Introduction to the book of John
*An explanation of how to use the signature S.O.A.K. method of Bible Study
*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.
For those who have been following the Good Morning Girls Bible Studies – you know that we have been in the Old Testament for the last three sessions. We did 2 Samuel in the Spring, Psalm chapters 1-50 in the summer, and an in-depth, verse by verse study of the book of Ruth this past fall. So now we are back to the New Testament and I’m so excited to be 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.

Here is an explanation of the
Signature GMG SOAK Bible Study method:
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.
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:
Highlighters – Bible Hi-Gliders
Fine Line Non-bleeding Pens – Multi-Colored Gel Pens
Colored Pencils – Crayola Twistables and Crayola Colored Pencils
I use the ESV Inductive Study Bible and the ESV Journaling Bible as my personal study Bible.
Mark your calendars for January 14th!
Spread the Word! Share this post with your friends! And look for the free resources and more details about our winter study coming after Christmas.

PS-I love how you wrote, “(for ages 10-110)” ???? Gives me a chuckle every time. ????
YES! I was hoping it was John. Ive been in Exodus. (I catch up with what you’ve already done during the breaks.) While I have learned new things I am so ready for some New Testament. LOL calendar is marked!
Yay! So looking forward to it! I have marked it in my planner so I will be ready, set, to go! (I sometimes forget why I walked I into a room, so I have to write EVERYTHING down or I will forget #MomBrainIsReal)
Courtney I am excited for the new bible study. In my habit tracker John was one of the books I’ve read.
Are there any Facebook groups taking new people? I was in one that is closing.
I can wait to do this it’s my 1th time on here and I love the book of John and that’s my dad name so I marked it on my calendar God bless everyone .
What is your favorite study bible?
I just found you. I am excited to join in on this one! I am going to work on catching up during breaks and offer this out through my own Bible study group. It’s nice to study with others.
Hi would like to do the study how do l get journal cos lam in Kenya.
Hi, I got a new Bible for Christmas. I’m ready for the new study, and more to come this new year. Thank you for all you do. Many blessings for you and your family.
I decided to take part in this new study. Just ordered the journal book from Amazon. I’m excited to take part. I need to be more disciplined in dojng Bible study and am making it my 2019 resolution!
I have ordered the book. Marked my calendar and looking forward to the class.
I’m new to journaling, but anxious to learn. Don’t know what the S.O.A.K. Is, but I’m sure I will learn Happy New year.
I am excited and can’t wait to start this study in the Book of John. Every year starts with good intentions and somewhere along the way, I fall off and then become very frustrated with myself. By the grace of God I will make it through this time. I have never used the SOAK method and want to learn more.
Hey there lady, I have followed you for years and have been praying for your heart to be captured by God’s immense love for you!! Looks like He has continued to be faithful! I’m so thankful!! Thank you for following the advice of your family to continue blogging and listening to Jesus. Your faithfulness to continue trusting even when the deep waters threatened to engulf you are a VERY precious example of God’s goodness and faithfulness! Praise God He is everlasting and unchanging! Looking forward to seeing what God has in store in 2019!!
Blessings to you and your house!
