Encouragement Tuesday: Blog-world Bible Study

A few weeks ago I was tweeting along, and befriended Callie (@AthleteWannabe) who blogs over at The Wannabe Athlete. Callie had this amazing idea to have a blogger bible study where we all read the same book and do reviews and talk about it whether it's through a twitter chat or FB

After sending out a simple question of who would be interested - not a few hours later and 22 women had already signed up. This is such a great idea! I have weird hours at work and am not always able to make it to Church, and I could always use more prayer in my life. Now there are 31 women, we've all said a little something about ourselves and we use the FB page to leave encouraging words or verses we love on here, and to be honest - on a bad day at work it really helps to have a huge bubble of friends who have nothing but positive and faithful words. 

We chose to do the book, Esther: It's Tough Being A Woman

This is a Beth Moore group Bible Study that has been a favorite of many bible studies and women everywhere around the country. I haven't deep dived into the book or anything yet, as our Bible Study won't start for another few days at least... but I encourage you to join if you haven't already! If you want to comment with your email address I'll send you the email that I first got, and also on this post the links will take you to the FB page where we usually talk with each other the most. I hope some of you join!!

I have to admit I've never really done an in depth Bible Study with books, so this will be new for me. I'm excited!! hehe

Today I'm linking up with Jami at Call Me Blessed, for WeEncourage Tuesdays :) Stop by her page and check out other bloggers and their encouraging words!

this looks awesome!! I may have to pick up that book (and thanks for sharing all the info!). I really think you'd like our church, Gateway Community Church and if you can't make it on Sundays, they podcast the service!! Also, Austin Stone does a Sun night service!! xo
