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 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.
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.
Join us on the blog, Instagram and Facebook!
Here’s the GMG Social Media Schedule
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!
If you are leading a Facebook Group – right click and “copy – save as” this image below to use as your Facebook Header.
