Here’s a look inside!

For those who have been following the Good Morning Girls Bible Studies  – you know that we studied Philippians (from the New Testament) last fall. So I’m excited to get back to the Old Testament and complete 2 books!

What are Ezra and Nehemial all about?

As we read and study the Book of Ezra, we will see God’s love and faithfulness on display over and over again. When the children of Israel are discouraged and apathetic, he sends his prophets to encourage them to keep going. When they are, once again, unfaithful to him, he remains faithful them.

Ezra recalls the events of the first post-exilic return of the children of Israel to Jerusalem under Zerubbabel and Ezra, and the rebuilding of the Temple.

Nehemiah details the determined spirit of God’s people as they undertake the daunting task of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem so that the returning captives can once again live in their land of promise.

Originally, the Book of Nehemiah was included in the Book of Ezra as one book, but when the Bible was translated into Latin, the two books were separated.

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!

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!

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 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.

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 15th!

 Spread the Word!  Share this post with your friends!  And look for the free resources and more details about our winter study coming after Christmas.
