I've noticed several blogs that contain questions for their readers to respond to ....and some bloggers actually give out prizes!! Since I have no extra income being a substitute teacher---no school equals no income-- I cannot offer a prize for your input!!! Sorry! But... I will say "thank you" a gajillion times and hug your neck if I ever meet you! Being said....here goes.
Back in May, I was asked to lead a 4 week summer Bible study at my church. I prayed about it and agreed. I EVEN got to come up with the topic. Since my mind was focused on the She Speaks conference, I chose the Proverbs 31 woman. I have truly researched and prayed about this. Here's the deal--next Sunday, July 13, I have the ministry moment at church to promote this Bible study. Not a problem getting in front of folks--y'all, I love to talk! The issue is that the study has not come together yet! I really wanted the entire study to be finished by now. It's not!!!
I am trying to target young moms to come to this study--we have child care available. Each week's lesson is a stand alone study. So, if vacation is holding you back from signing up, having a study that doesn't build on the previous week shouldn't prevent you from coming. I want to make it as easy as possible for these ladies to come once a week to learn what God's Word says and to apply it to their lives.
Here's what I would love you out in bloggy land to help me with !! One---pray, pray, pray that women will be drawn to this study, and they will be blessed by it. Two---pray, pray, pray that God shows me specifically what He wants these women to learn. There are many virtues of the P31 woman, and I only have 4 weeks (1.5 hours each Monday) to share. I am trying to condense and not overlook the importance of each quality. Three---pray, pray, pray that I will show radical obedience (I finished Lysa TerKeurst's book about this --awesome!) as I discern His voice, and that He gets all of the glory.
I thank you in advance for your help!!! Y'all are wonderful!!! Happy Sunday.
