Good Morning Girls Resources for the Book of 1 Kings

Happy Spring! I’m so glad you are here!  We are about to begin our study through the book of 1 Kings 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 reading the book of 1 Kings – one chapter a day – Monday through Friday – from beginning to end 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 April 1st!

Here at Good Morning Girls all the resources are free
but there is an optional 1 Kings Journal for purchase
exclusively on Amazon.

This journal includes:

*  An introduction and background to the Book  of 1 Kings
*  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 1 Kings.


Here is the free printable short version of the Book of 1 Kings 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 1 Kings, 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 22 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, John, 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 – 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.

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 1 Kings.  Follow me on Instagram here.


On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, I’ll post the assigned reading of the day at 7:00am 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!

  3. I have my Journal all ready to begin, looking forward to studying this book for the first time. I have been with you since the beginning of “Blogging through the Bible”! I live in West Sussex on the south coast of England.

    1. Hi Susan, I just wanted to introduce myself to you! I’m Karen and I live just across the water from you! I’ve been over to England and Scotland a few times and these are beautiful countries. Have you ever been over here in Northern Ireland? Xx

  4. Thank you for putting these studies together! I work a weird shift (7p-7a) and often cannot join a life group at my church because of this! I will be joining you from Wisconsin. If some has room in their small group, I would love to join!

  5. Thank you for doing this! I am excited to be a part of this! I live in the Minneapolis area of Minnesota. I am looking for a small group to join if someone has room!

  6. I’ve seen GMG on IG and have been interested for a while. I purchased the journal from Amazon and I am excited about doing the 1 Kings study. Thank you.
    Washington, DC

  7. I love being in his word!!! I, however. love doing the Soak method best of all. It makes me study more in depth every passage. There is always something new and exciting to learn!!

  8. Hi. Thank you for this wonderful program. I am just starting with 1 Kings.

    Have a blessed day????


  9. Hi all! My name is Audra and I’m a 33 year old wife & mother of 2, joining you all from a small town in Oklahoma! I’ve been participating in these studies since the very beginning of this series! I don’t always comment, but I am always reading the posts and praying for this ministry!! I’m purchasing my book on amazon today (they are such a valuable resource) and will be counting down the days until April 1st!!

  10. I stumbled across your IG account and promptly ordered the journal. I live on the coast of Alabama (southern US) with an empty nest, a retired husband, and an old blind dog. I am very much looking forward to joining you in this study. This will be my first study with you but I love what I’m seeing so far. Can’t wait to dig in!

  11. I found you blog a while back. I never caught the study in the beginning. But I’m going to try to be accountable. So I can’t wait to try out the soak method and get to know some of you ladies. I too am an empty nester. Husband has been recently handicapped. Defiantly looking to join an email group. I am in California. ???????? Waiting till April 1st but I won’t be a fool. Lol.

  12. Hey there! So excited to join you. I come from Chesterfield, South Carolina. I have my journal and i am bringing two other precious friends in for this. So we are all new to your group. So looking forward to it❤

  13. These studies have become such an amazing way for me to stay in God’s word each morning, even though my family and I have been moving around a lot in the last ten years. Can’t wait for this study to begin! I will be joing you from Westfield, IN.

  14. So excited for this study. I always enjoy them but I don’t ever leave comments. I really appreciate all you do and I pray that you and your family are doing well. I’m joining you from Southern California. Thank s again!!

  15. Do you have any plans to create the purchasable books for any of the other books of the Bible that you have already done? Just curious. Thanks.

    1. Hi Nascent 🙂

      Good question! Do you mean the old studies like Genesis and Exodus? I would love to but have not found the time to make that happen. When the time allows – yes — but it may not be for a very long time. 🙁

      Lots of Love,

  16. Hey does anyone have an open Facebook group that are doing it together? Would love to join a group doing it!

  17. Hello, I am a newbie to Bible Study. Should I start at the beginning of the Bible, or does it matter? I want to learn the beginning of God’s plan and about His Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. I am a cradle Catholic and want to learn more about my faith through Bible study. Recommendations are very much welcomed!
    Thank You and Blessings to you!

      1. Joining a group or finding a couple of friends to do it with is a great way to get started and help to be accountable to each other.
        Monica – Doing the study will definitely help give you tools for when you study the Bible on your own.
        Newbie or not, I think everyone will get lots out of 1 Kings. The first 4 books of the New Testament will be great ones for you as well 🙂

        1. Rosie,
          Can you recommend the Bible we are to use for our Study? I would like to get it before the study begins on April 1st.
          Thanks for replying to my post!

          1. Hey Monica, do you have a Bible at all yet? You don’t need any specific one, however if you don’t have one yet I’d suggest something along the lines of ESV or NIV translations.

      2. Hi Malia, I live in central Missouri. Glad to know there are other women starting this new journey like me! Thanks for posting a reply!

  18. I have been away for awhile life throws those curve balls but I am back, but I am excited to get back to my time with God! I am so thankful that you are still here putting in your time so that we have these beautiful bible studies! I am in a new city of San Antonio, Tx!!! I can’t wait to get started! I hope you all have a Wonderful weekend!! See ya’ll on Monday! ♡

  19. I enjoyed the last few studies so much! I’ve now started a group, and I’m so excited to start this new study!

  20. Joining from Hawley Texas. This is my first study with you and am excited to start. Our church also uses the SOAP method of bible study but I like the K in yours for kneeling in humble submission to our Lord and Savior! Let’s do this ladies. And thank you for your obedience to lead. Btw i ordered your study on Ecclesiastes that I look forward to completing.
