I will repay you for the years that the swarming locust ate, the young locust, the destroying locust, and the devouring locust— My great army that I sent against you. Joel 2:25 All of us have places in our lives where the “locusts” have eaten—hopes dashed, mistakes made, and losses piled on. God says He will repay all that damage. The word repay in Joel 2:25 is shalam. Sound familiar? … [Read more...]

Congratulations to our winner, Eliska Hahn! Today is release day for Hosea: Unfailing Love Changes Everything! As we said yesterday, we're very excited about this Bible study. We think you'll love it, too! Hosea, an old-testament prophet, preached his own life message using his marriage as the sermon illustration. The 7 session study of Hosea looks deeply at that message. It provides … [Read more...]

Welcome to Week 4! Thank you for joining us! Just a refresher on how this works (we post this each week, so skip it if you know what to do!):  Each week, you’ll come here and watch the video with Karen Kingsbury. The videos are about 3-6 minutes long and feature Karen leading us through the Bible study as if we were in her home. Once you watch the video, we have some questions for you to answer … [Read more...]

Update: Congratulations to our winners - Kelly, Gail, Amanda, Pat, and Terry! Can anyone else relate to the titles below as much as I can? It's so easy to feel like our prayer life is lacking, and we ask, just as one of Jesus' disciples did, "Lord, teach me to pray." There's a constant battle of competing voices in our heads (please tell me I'm not alone here!) speaking words of truth and … [Read more...]

I’m terrible at prayer. Actually, it’s the discipline of prayer—setting aside time, focusing and making it a priority—at that, I am terrible. I talk to God all the time as I come and go in my day-to-day life—from ramblings in the car to inner dialogues as I ride the elevator at work. I am talking to God each day, but as for quality time—it’s skimpy. And life is hard. This week a dear … [Read more...]

Update: Congratulations to our winners, Beth, Nancy, Lori, Kay, and Catherine! Can we just get real here for a second? Sometimes the Bible is confusing. There are certain verses and stories, and sometimes even whole books, that I can read a dozen times, and they still leave me scratching my head. For me, these head-scratching moments occur quite regularly in the stories of the Old … [Read more...]

We have a tendency to get excited here at the LifeWay Women office. We're a bit of a loud bunch, and more often than not it's because we're pumped up about one thing or another—birthday parties or pretty designs or really, really good muffins. These are all things worth celebrating! And one of the things that gets us most excited is new Bible studies. New studies mean more women in the Word, … [Read more...]
