Welcome to Good Morning Girls! We are so glad you are here.
It is a privilege for Good Morning Girls to welcome women from all walks of life, with varying backgrounds and experiences to study the Bible together. The women who make up Good Morning Girls come from all over the world, painting a picture of God’s love of diversity. Yet something each Good Morning Girl has in common is a sisterhood in Jesus Christ and a passion to know God more through His Word.
Good Morning Girls does not seek to come in place of the local church, but it does provide a resource for women at local churches to use. It also is for women who might not have a Bible Study available for them in their local body or who can’t attend because of their stage of life.
What is a Good Morning Girls group?
“Good Morning Girls” is the title for a group of Christian women who keep each other accountable in their quiet times.
What are the requirements?
All are welcome to join us anytime. There are no requirements to subscribe or enroll. If you would like to do this alone and at your own pace, I will be your accountability partner here at the blog. But if you would like to start a Good Morning Girls group – here’s how it works…
How do I set up a Good Morning Girls group?
All Good Morning Girls groups are different, meeting the needs of different women, at different seasons of life. You can pick the outlet that will work best for you. Facebook Groups, Instagram, Email, text message, or group meetings in your home or at your church, are all options. Be creative!
Because GMG involves accountability, it is necessary that all group members have access to the mode of communication you choose.
When should I start my group and how long does it last?
We regroup a few times a year. Usually it is in the winter, spring, summer and fall. This allows a graceful bow out time for women who need to leave your group, who might have studies going on in their local church or who are not able to commit. This also opens the door for new women to join in.
What size should my group be?
Good Morning Girls groups come in all shapes and sizes. Some groups might be small, with personal girlfriends from your church or playgroup, family members, high school or college friends or even co-workers. These groups might even meet in person. We love and encourage that!
Other groups might be larger in nature, and often exist on Facebook to accommodate anyone who is looking for accountability. This also allows flexibility in schedules. People can share when they are free and not feel tied down to a set time and place. Group members can live anywhere on the planet, and with the beauty of the internet, they can connect and be accountable.
While it takes no set number of women to form a group, Good Moring Girls suggests that a group of 4-12 is ideal. This includes enough members to keep the group going, yet it is still small enough to encourage intimacy and sharing. We have found that bigger groups are not always better, since they tend to lose their intimate feel and the women begin to feel like a number in a crowd or they won’t share their personal details.
We pray the Lord blesses your group as you take this journey with them.
Keep walking with the King!
THE GOOD MORNING GIRLS STATEMENT OF BELIEF
Women Living Well Ministries is a non-denominational, evangelical ministry.
We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word and is the sole written revelation that rules the faith and practice for all Christians and alone can bind the conscience. We believe that God has preserved His Word and that by His power it has been kept from being lost, destroyed, or diluted with error (2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:89; 1 Peter 1:23, 25).
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, perfect in love and holiness, who exists as three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Peter 1:2).
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and entered human form by the miracle of the Virgin Birth, that He lived a sinless life, and that He died for our sins. Christ is the only mediator through whose work we are redeemed. We believe that He rose again on the third day and now sits at the right hand of God as our Advocate (Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1, 14, 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 1:3; 1 John 2:1).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God. His ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. We believe that He brings about the new birth, indwells, baptizes, seals, anoints, and endows all who are regenerated with spiritual gifts. The Holy Spirit also leads believers who daily surrender their life to Him by guiding, teaching, sanctifying, and filling them (John 15:26, 16:8, 3:3-6, 14:16- 17, 14:26).
We believe that all people are created in the image of God. At the same time, because of Adam’s sin, all people are sinful by nature and choice. Apart from forgiveness through Jesus Christ, all are lost and alienated from God (Genesis 1:27, 3:1-6; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1-3).
We believe that salvation rests solely on the work of God’s grace for us and in us. We are justified by grace through faith alone. Christ’s death is the only payment for sin that God will accept. Additionally, the righteousness of Christ is transferred to us by faith and is the only merit or righteousness that God will accept—we possess the righteousness of Christ in the sight of God (Romans 3:23-26, 4:1-3). All who truly believe in Christ are born again and become the children of God (John 1:12-13; Ephesians 2:8-9). All true believers, once saved, are kept by God’s power, not our own, and are thus secure in Christ forever (John 6:37-40, 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39).
We believe in the resurrection of the body. At death the spirits of the saved go immediately to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven, and the unsaved descend immediately into Hell until the final Day of Judgment. At that time, their bodies shall be raised from the grave: the saved will return to be in Heaven with Christ, the lost will be judged and returned to Hell (Luke 16:19-31, 23:43; Revelation 20:11-15).
We believe that the Church consists of all who believe in Jesus Christ as Savior. The local church exists to exalt Christ, encourage believers, and evangelize the world. We believe that every local church is free to govern its own affairs under Christ and should seek to support the unity of all Christ-honoring churches and ministries (Colossians 1:28; Ephesians 4:3-6).
