I know that this past week has been unusually difficult and unpredictable. Things seem to be changing daily and I’m still absorbing it all.  I am praying for you all and love you.  If you need daily encouragement – join me out on instagram and Facebook.  I’m posting daily there. For now, here on the blog, I’m going forward with our next Bible Study…so here it is…

What Is Hosea all about?

The Best Selling book, Redeeming Love, is based on the first 3 chapters of Hosea but most of us have not studied the last 11 chapters of Hosea.  So you don’t want to miss this!!!  God’s word is alive and active and I know we are going to grow together.

The Book of Hosea has two parts.  The first three chapters use Hosea’s life to illustrate his prophetic message, as he marries Gomer, who is repeatedly unfaithful to him.  Hosea continues to love his wife, despite her unfaithfulness to him and so his marriage is a picture of God’s covenantal love for his people and Israel’s continual unfaithfulness to Him.  The last eleven chapters of Hosea record the accusations against Israel and the warnings for them to turn and repent of their disobedient ways.  These chapters reveal the character and heart of God, as he is torn by his love and compassion for them and their need for discipline.  In the end, they face judgement but there is hope, as God’s healing love is poured out on them.

FAQ

How do I enroll for this winter study?

There is no enrollment.  No requirement to subscribe.  Just come and join in 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, one week before we begin, 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.

  1. Hello! I lead an email Bible study group for women of all ages. I send out the daily Bible study verse and question, and we reply all with our SOAKS. If you are looking for an online (non-FaceBook) group, please email me at cajungirl0717@gmail.com

  2. Good Morning!
    I did your online bible study back in 2012 when it was good morning girls and had an accountability group. One of the things I really liked was the digging deeper questions. Do you still do that with the current studies?

  3. Amazon is showing the Hosea study available for $8.09 and available to ship in just a few days! (I’m in Oregon)

    Thank you!

  4. I’m looking forward to joining you for another great Bible study. Thank you for staying true to this endeavor.

    1. Hi! I have started early on the Hosea study. I’m enjoying the journal thoroughly! It helps me focus on what God is saying.

      I am at Chapter 5 today and just wanted to ask if maybe the 2kings 5 reflection got plugged in there instead of the Hosea 5 reflection question? It is about Naaman and his healing.

      Thanks!

  5. I just purchase and then went to down load the study and it said link expired when i tried to down load
