Good Morning Girls Resources for 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

Happy New Year! I’m so glad you are here!  We are about to begin our study through the book of John and EVERYTHING you need to get started is below – so keep on scrolling down.  There is a lot of information below but the most important part is where you leave a comment and let us know where you are joining us from and if you have an open GMG group – please leave your link.

If you are new here, Good Morning Girls is an accountability group for reading God’s Word.  I am here to serve you and encourage you.  I hope you will commit to starting out the New Year, in the Book of John with us! I know you will be blessed.

Below you will find all of the resources you need to get started.  Then watch for more weekly resources here on the blog every Monday and Friday starting January 14th!

Here at Good Morning Girls all the resources are free
but there is an optional John Journal for purchase
exclusively on Amazon.

This journal includes:

*  An introduction and background to the Book  of John
*  The Daily Reflection Question
*  The Verse of the Day
*  The Coloring Chart
*  An explanation of the SOAK Method
*  Blank pages for journaling daily

Here’s the Printable Bible Bookmark for the Book of John.

Here is the free printable short version of the Book of John Journal for logging your SOAK study.   This is for those who are not purchasing the Paperback Journal.  This is not the same as the Paperback Journal – this eJournal has been created for low-cost printing on a home printer and does not include the Introduction to John, Verses of the Day or Reflection questions.

Invite your sons and daughters!  

Just like us – our children NEED to be in God’s Word daily.  Children over the age of ten are capable of reading a chapter a day and SOAKing what they have read. I encourage you to introduce this method of study to your children.  Teach them how to drink from the living well of God’s word and soak in all the spiritual nourishment they can!

If you have a son joining you – there is a journal available for them!  The interior is identical to the girls journal.

Here at Good Morning Girls we are reading through the Bible – one chapter a day – 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, Psalms 1-50, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Acts, Romans, & 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.

My Bible Reading Plan

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.

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 – Acid Free – Bible Hi-Glider
Fine Line Non-bleeding Pens – Micron Archival Ink and 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.

Here’s the GMG Social Media Schedule

On the Blog

Mondays –  All of the free Resources for the week including the Daily Reflections Questions and printable Verses of the Day will be posted here.

Fridays – they’ll be a Friday wrap-up video or devotional here on the blog.


On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, I’ll be posting encouragement for your study in the book of John.  Follow me on Instagram here.


On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, I’ll post the assigned reading of the day at 7:30am EST and an open discussion takes place there. Come anytime during the day and join us.  Check it out! It’s wonderful! Go to Good Morning Girls Facebook Page here.

There is no right or wrong way to do this.  This is all optional – pick and choose what works best for you.

There are no sign-ups or enrollments.

I encourage you to invite your friends and start your own Good Morning Girls group.  You can keep each other accountable using email, text messaging or creating a Facebook group.

Accountability works in reaching our goals – whether it’s losing weight, becoming more organized, or getting into God’s word daily – the encouragement of others keeps us going on days when we’d rather quit!

  2. I am excited to start my second study with yall but its been a while. I am from west central LA and a mom of 5.

  3. Hi,
    I am joining in from Eupora,Ms

    I am so excited about starting this. A few weeks back I had decided that I would read the entire book of John starting the new year and to my surprise I open my Instagram one day and saw that the next study would be John. Is that not confirmation or what… can’t wait to start…

    1. Hi neighbor!! I am from Grenada!! I love the GMG Bible studies, have been studying along for a few years now. Good to see someone so ckose to my area.

  4. Hello my name is Helen & I’ll be joining you from Dubai, United Arab Emirates. I’m a UK expat living in the middle East.
    I’m part of no group other than the main GMG page so if there isn’t a middle East group, can I join the UK one please?

  5. Starting with you for the first time with three others. Threee of is are from Michigan and one from Colorado.

    1. I would say we are not a group though because this is our first time and we are not sure how this is going to work… ????

  6. Been praying for a bible study.. yes my church offfers them but none go with my schedule
    I reached out to a few ladies no replies, then I came across GMG.. just when I was going to give up, He always shows up with His plan

    Thank you ladies for letting me share and also grow in my walk with you all. May will all be like Enoch

  7. I, too, have done many studies with GMG. I especially enjoyed the book of Ruth and the new layout and effort put into it. I would love to see the same done with all remaining books. It seemed more in depth. I have received my book of John and look forward to beginning the study with everyone.

    1. Hi Deborah! I am so glad you liked the in-depth study of Ruth! I also have an in-depth study of the book of Ecclesiastes if you have not done it yet – you can find all of resources here: .

      The in-depth studies take a lot more time for research, writing and editing so there will be more ahead but it will be a while. We are currently beginning the behind the scenes writing of the next one – so it’s in the works!

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

  8. I am looking forward to the study of John. I have done some studies with GMG and enjoyed them and learnt so much. Thank you.
    I live in Auckland New Zealand.

  25. I am joining you from Orrville/Dalton, OH (just down the road!) and looking forward to spending more time in another book of the Bible.
    Taking time to really read and reflect upon – and then act upon – a portion of the Bible is so much more worthwhile, than my just reading to read.

  28. I am very excited to do this study. I love the book of John and I have some Family members doing this study with me. I have done many OBS but this is my first with GMG. I can’t wait to see how God will speak to us as we study his word and come together in community.

  29. Hi Courtney,

    I’m looking forward to joining everyone for this bible study. I have followed you for many years, maybe since around 2012! I am joining you for the first time with this bible study. I love the book of John so I am a little bit excited to get started 🙂 I did print out two of your other bible studies near the end of 2018 for this year but once I saw you were starting the book of John I decided to join in with you all.
    I would love to join a Facebook group for Australia. Do you know if there is one already created?

    God bless you.
