Summer Bible Study


Hey all! My daughter, Sam, and I are going to be doing a summer bible study called Nehemiah, A Heart That Can Break. We would love to invite any of you to join us. Sam and I will be meeting by video conference through Google Hangout weekly and also connecting with the women over at the Eisy Morgan blog as a small group through a discussion forum. The larger study is being organized through Beth Moore's blog. You can join us in either or both portions - through Google Hangout or the discussion forum or both. You would just need to purchase the member book ($12.95 plus shipping from Amazon or Lifeway or a local bookstore) and meet up with us weekly. The kickoff is June 26th, but you don't need your book until the following week, so there's still time. Contact me by email or leave a comment below if you are interested. Here's an excerpt from the book...
"As God is forming me into a more whole and free woman, I've begun to realize that freedom and healing aren't just so I can have exquisite friends, dwell in a peaceful home, attend an amazing church, make a comfortable salary, and eat tick-fed chicken. These are sublime  blessings, but Christ has made us whole for far more than our own earthly comforts and pleasures. Essentially, wholeness is not the end but the beginning, because wholeness allows us to give much more of our hearts, possessions, time, wisdom, money, friendship, and love away -- a part of my Christianity that had been lacking.
... Today I invite you to follow God outside of yourself. To consider the needs that surround you, and to listen closely to what breaks your heart. Because a broken heart is often the very thing God uses to restore the broken." 
Also, don't forget that you can receive an email every time I post a new blog by clicking on the button on the right that says "Follow me by email". You will be sent an email after you register to confirm your email address. You have to follow through with this second step to finalize the process.
