In case you missed the first announcement – here is our next Bible Study!!!
We begin Monday, September 14th in the Book of 2 Corinthians!
It’s okay if you have not studied 1 Corinthians yet – the two are separate books.
They do not have to be read in order.
If you would like to take a look at the 1 Corinthians study –
you can find all of the past blogs for 1 Corinthians -> HERE.
We also have a Good Morning Guys 2 Corinthians Journal for your sons ages 10 and up.
Both journals have an identical interior.
Inside the journals you will find:
*An Introduction to the book of 2 Corinthians
*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 Corinthians.
This companion journal is not required to join us.
What’s 2 Corinthians all about?
The book of 2 Corinthians is Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians. This letter is different from the first letter because it’s very personal. There are details in this book about Paul’s personal life, that are found nowhere else in the New Testament. Paul is thankful for their repentance and obedience to the Lord and he writes to comfort them. Paul explains some of the hardships he has endured for the sake of Christ and also shares about a personal thorn in the flesh, that has kept him dependent on God. He then goes on to exhort the believers to live with a heart of forgiveness and generosity towards others. He calls them to live separate from the world and he ends the letter by warning them against false teachers.
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 27 books of the Bible:
Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, Hosea, 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 Voxer – 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! About 10 days 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 works – 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:
Colored Pencils – Crayola Twistables and Crayola Colored Pencils
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 September 14th!
