Introducing the New Winter 2020 Bible Study
Welcome to Good Morning Girls! I’m so glad you are here.
It’s time to announce the NEW Winter 2020 Bible Study!
Cue the Confetti!
Drum roll please…
It’s the book of 2 Kings!
This is an exciting Old Testament book to study in the midst of cold, winter months!
We are going to learn so much together as we read one chapter a day, through the book of 2 Kings.
This study begins on
Monday, January 13th.
The optional 2 Kings Journal is available NOW
exclusively on Amazon!
Inside the journal you will find:
*An Introduction to the book of 2 Kings
*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 2 Kings.
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 studied 1 Kings last spring. You do not have to have completed that study to join us – I’ll be sure to catch you up! Last fall, we were in the New Testament studying 1 Corinthians, so I’m excited to get back to the Old Testament and complete 2 Kings.
What is 2 Kings all about?
In 2 Kings, we will see the spiritual decline of Israel and Judah, as they refuse to turn from their idols and follow God wholeheartedly. As a result, they will be taken into captivity. But before they are taken into captivity, God continually raises up prophets to warn the nation of Israel, to turn from their wicked ways. One of those prophets is Elisha and he performs 14 amazing miracles in 2 Kings! You don’t want to miss this! We are going to learn so much about the God we serve.
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 through the Bible, switching back and forth between the New Testament and the Old Testament.
So far we have completed 25 books of the Bible:
Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians 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.

What is Good Morning Girls?
“Good Morning Girls” is a title for a group of women who use email, Facebook, Twitter or text messaging to keep each other accountable for their quiet times.
Do I have to have a Good Morning Girls Group to join the Bible Study?
No. You can do this study without a group on your own.
How Do I Start a Good Morning Girls accountability group?
Invite some of your friends to join you. Pray about who from your church, Bible study group, family, neighborhood or workplace would be a good fit. Groups that are smaller generally work better – 5-12 is a good number especially for email and text messaging groups. Facebook groups can go quite a bit larger and still work.
Once I have a group, what do I do?
Either create a Facebook Group where you can all discuss your daily reading and reflection questions or create an email group and email the group daily. My group uses the Voxer App – a voice messaging app -to share about our quiet times. You could also use text messaging or meet in person weekly in your home or at a coffee shop.
I want to be a leader of a group but I’m not sure how to lead?
To access the FREE Leader’s Training Video Series go —–> HERE.
The Good Morning Girls Leaders Manual is available as a digital download for free –> HERE.
Or you can find it out on Amazon in Paperback –> Here.
The manual includes: The leader’s responsibilities. How to set up a Good Morning Girls Group. What to do once your group is set up. Tips to help your GMG Group thrive. How to Encourage Participation. How to fostering an atmosphere of community. The importance of prayer. A sample welcome letter. 9 ways to get more out of your Bible Study. Answers to frequently asked questions. Icebreaker Questions. And What to do if your GMG Group is struggling.
Can I Join a Group On-Line?
Yes, on January 1st I will invite women with open groups to leave links to their facebook groups or email groups, in the comment section here on the blog. So please stop back on that day to look for a group!
That’s all for now. If you have never seen the video that explains how the SOAK Method and Bible Coloring Chart work – I am posting it below. You do not have to use this method of Bible Study to join us. All you really need is your Bible and an open heart. But these tools will help you go deeper.
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 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. You can find more pictures like this out on my Instagram page.
Mark your calendars for Monday, January 13th!

I really get a lot out of studying the books of the Bible a chapter T a time. And doing it with such wonderful women that also chose to study along with Courtney.
I’m so glad you are joining us again!! And I love our community here too. I’ll see you back here in the New Year.
I am so excited for this study! It is perfect timing. 🙂 Have a Merry Christmas, Courtney!
I’m so glad you are joining us!!! Merry Christmas to you too!
Very excited!! This will be my second bible study with you. How many studies do you normally do a year?
I usually do one study per season – so one in the winter, one in the spring, one in the summer and one in the fall. Then in November, I usually do the Making Your Home a Haven Study. 😉
I’m glad you are joining us again!
I can’t wait! I’ve been enjoying your Advent Study. Looking forward to new revelations.
Thank you for sharing you studies.
Have a very Merry Christmas!
Would like to join the group
Currently going through a sad divorce. My husband wants to pursue a relationship with another woman and I’m now left with 4 small kids. I sadly can’t homeschool anymore. I know you’ve Also been down this road Courtney and I just admire your love for Jesus through it all. do you have any material/post/etc. you can point me to so I can check it out? I need all the encouragement I can get.
I’m sorry for my slow reply. I am behind from the holidays.
I am so very sorry for what you are going through. It is just devastating and my heart breaks for you. If you have not read Angela Thomas’ book titled Single Mom – I recommend it – you can find it here: https://amzn.to/2QJNNjp . Another good book is titled “When Happily Ever Shatters”: https://amzn.to/2QqA6Hj and all of the Boundaries books and videos out there by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. Townsend were really helpful as well. If you are looking to see your marriage restored the ministry titled “Rejoice Ministries” has a lot of great resources for you as well.
I am so very very sorry and am sending you my love and prayers tonight.
I am really hoping someone can help me with locating something. (Late) last night I came across a resource with 20 questions. They were wonderful reflective questions that I want to use with my one little word this year – commit. Today, of course, I can’t find them. I have searched the site and looked in my history, but nothing is coming up. The first question was about prioritizing your time with God’s Word. Does any of this sound familiar? Could someone point me to this resource? I am thinking it was a resource within a Bible study. Thank you for any help you can give me!
I found what I was looking for. Thank you!
So excited about joining you all again! This is my second season. I originally joined when you started 1st Corinthians. I feel so behind as you all have covered so much material.
I am very excited for this study… Great way to start the New Year!!
I am looking forward to this study. This will be my first online bible study.
How come I can only find the printable pages for this study on my phone? My phone is not connected to my printer. Any advice would be amazing.
Are the discussion questions available to print for the 2 Kings study as they were for the 1 Corinthians study? I do not see a printable link.
You can find the link to the printable discussion questions on this post here: https://womenlivingwell.org/2020/01/its-time-to-begin-intro-and-resources-for-2-kings-1-5/
So glad you are joining us again!
