What is Isaiah 1-23 all about?
Since Isaiah is a LONG book – I have divided it into 3 sections. For the winter session, we will read one chapter a day through Isaiah chapters 1-23. We are going to learn so much together!
The name Isaiah means salvation is of the Lord. Isaiah brought to Israel and Judah, a message of judgement for their rebellion but also a message of hope for salvation, through the coming Messiah.
For the first part of Isaiah, Isaiah focuses on God’s judgement of Israel. God’s people had turned their back on God and had become like the other nations around them. God would use the Assyrians and Babylonians to bring judgement upon them. Isaiah called on God’s people to turn back and seek the Lord and he assures them that after judgement, a godly remnant would remain.
For the second part of Isaiah, Isaiah announces that Israel’s punishment and exile is over, and salvation has come. We see that God is faithful to his covenant promises. No other prophet is quoted in the New Testament as much as Isaiah. Isaiah foretold the coming King of Israel, who would rule in justice and peace and would bear their sins.
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 28 books of the Bible:
Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, Hosea, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Cornthians and James! You can find ALL of the links to past studies on the GMG Resources Page.

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.

Icebreaker Questions. And What to do if your GMG Group is struggling.
Can I Join a Group On-Line?
Yes, in my next blog post 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:
Colored Pencils – Crayola Twistables and Crayola Colored Pencils
Here is an explanation of the
Signature GMG SOAK Bible Study method:

This is a wonderful method that slows us down and helps us soak in every single word.
