Join Good Morning Girls as we read through the Bible cover to cover one chapter a day. Here is the information you need for the fall 2023 bible study. #WomenLivingWell #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls #Philippians

I am back and so excited to begin the second half of the “Blogging through the Bible” Series!!!

As many of you know, I took a break last December to write a book, plan a wedding, coach my daughter’s senior year of cheer, throw her graduation party, get married and move into our new home. Then, last week I took both of my kids to Liberty University and moved them into their dorms. They begin their freshman and sophomore year of college this week.

It was a long drive home from Virginia with lots of tears. But now it’s a new day! I am back in Ohio and ready to get back to studying God’s word together!

There are 66 books in the Bible and before my break we had just completed book number 33 – so we are right at the half way point!

These are the books we have completed so far: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, Isaiah, Hosea, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, and James!  
You can find ALL of the links to past studies on the GMG Resources Page.

But before I announce our NEW fall study…I am so excited to share with you our wedding video! From beginning to end it was such a beautiful day.

We did a very simple private ceremony in the courtyard with only our immediate family present. They stood around us while my (step) son-in-law officiated the vows. It was perfect! (except for the rain Lol!) Following the vow exchange, we held a celebration reception with 100 of our closest family and friends.

I am so grateful to God for a wonderful start to this new chapter of our lives as we blend two families into one. God is good! I can’t thank him enough for his faithfulness in our lives. Hope you enjoy this little sneak peek into our special day.

Cue the confetti!!!

It’s time to announce the NEW Fall 2023 Bible Study!

Drum roll please…

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, around 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!

Mark your calendars for Monday, September 11th!

Spread the Word!  Share this post with your friends!  And look for the free resources and more details about our study coming in September!

I really hope you will join us.

  3. Courtney,
    Congrats on your wedding! God has blessed you both with a beautiful blended family. I’ve enjoyed your website thru the years and was at Moody with you for maybe two years(?) I was RA on 10W in 93/94 and I have no doubt you remember those girls. 🙂 I also took our son to Liberty U last week and know what you’re going thru, mom! It’s tough to leave one, let alone two! He’s a junior this year but first time on campus. If your kiddos need a ride home to the Cleveland/Akron area ever, he has a car! It’s so good to see you back and I’m excited for Philippians!

    1. Oh wow! That’s is so fun that you were at Moody the same time as me. I was on 9 North from 93-95 and then moved to 3 North 96-97. I hope your son has a great year at Liberty! My son took his car too. Both of my kids are in Commons 1.

      So glad you are joining us for Philippians!! Can’t wait to begin with you.
