So, Monday I was browsing around my Facebook feed, wondering my general wonderings: What am I doing? How can I make my blog a resource that can help people? What do I do now? What do I write now?
When I spotted a post:
I’d heard of Good Morning Girls before, I’d read blogs about different ladies current study with them, about the SOAK method they tended to use, and the colorful way they filled out their Bible pages. But I hadn’t actually looked into it before.
As I read through this post, it just struck me. Why not?
Why not join in? Why not be one of those bloggers sharing her Bible study adventures? I already do that, just not in a focused way. Why not plug into a community that can give me that focus, with resources I can share with my readers to help them really dig into the Word themselves?
I’d already been thinking about doing some posts about how to study the Bible. I’d even been thinking about blogging about several of the study methods they use, including the SOAK method, because, well, I already used them!
The rest of the day was full of a scramble as I tried to get things just so, their new study is opening up on Acts on the 7th, that isn’t much time! They have Facebook Group small groups! I can lead those! Should I do an in-person group with some of my friends? Maybe. I’m definitely going to be blogging along!
So that is the plan! I’m very excited!
What does this mean for you?
I’ve set up a Facebook Group for The Joyful Truth to have its very own GMG small group. Space for this group will be limited and fill up fast so if you want to participate there I suggest clicking the link below NOW and requesting to be added. Once the spots fill up I will be setting the group to private and this link will no longer work! CLICK NOW!
If you don’t want to be in the Facebook Group, or if it is already closed, don’t worry! You can still participate! I’m going to be blogging along, participating in linkups with the main site and sharing my Bible Study journey here on the Blog. I’ll be sharing resources aplenty so you can join in, and you can share your own thoughts in the comments on my GMG posts!
Meanwhile, Good Morning Girls has put together a journal to use during this study and is selling it on Amazon. My understanding is that it is not necessary, but if you want it:
This is only the beginning friends! I’m so excited by the ideas I’m getting for sharing resources with you! I’m excited to blog through Acts with you! I’m excited to be starting to figure out ways I can serve you, not just with my thoughts, but with recourses and ideas you can implement in your life!
If you want to read along, start next Monday, Acts chapter one, read a chapter a day every weekday, and be sure to check back with me as I blog through the Bible with Good Morning Girls!
Be sure to keep an eye out for my first GMG posts! And please share what you think in the comments of this new direction for The Joyful Truth!
