Let’s Be Women of the Word Together

Do you want to be a woman of the Word? Me, too.

Join me beginning January as we begin our next book study with the book Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin. 

Together we are going to grapple with questions like…

Why do we study the Bible?

How do we study the Bible?

What are practical tips for studying God’s Word?

How can we make our Bible study about God and not about ourselves?

In her book Women of the Word, Jen tells us that when we read and study the Bible looking to learn more about ourselves, we are doing it for the wrong reasons. The Bible is a book about God. We learn about Him, we look for Him, and we find Him.

This isn’t to say we don’t learn more about ourselves in the process, but HOW we go about our study will help us learn more about God, which is the ultimate goal.

Let’s study the One we want to become more like…

It’s been said that we become what we behold. Let us behold our God through the pages of His Word! 

 

Write the Word with us!

In the book Women of the Word she very strongly encourages us not to take verses out of context and to look at the Scriptures as a whole. I completely agree with this. However, before we look at studying a book of the Bible in depth, I would like for us to spend a few weeks looking at many passages about God’s Word itself. I want our hearts to be reminded of the importance and treasure of His Word.

Let’s see what God’s Word has to say about God’s Word. These are all verses that will stir our hearts to know His Word more and more!

I will be starting this Write the Word schedule on January 1st, 2017. Join me on Instagram if you’d like to see nearly daily morning nuggets of truth from these passages.

After Women of the Word

After we finish this study of the book Women of the Word, it is my hope and prayer that you will continue with us as we take a look at 1 book of the Bible and study it more indepth using the tools we’ve learned from this book!

Author: Candace Crabtree

I'm just a messed up mama in need of God's fresh new mercies daily. My husband and I live in beautiful East Tennessee with our 3 children. God has taken me on a journey through the valley of depression and is teaching me to pray the Scriptures as a result. I hope and pray that you will be encouraged whenever you stop by this little place on the web.

  1. Thank you, Candace! I’m really looking forward to this study!
    I’ll be finishing my study of James on December 23rd. Any ideas on what I could do for the week between when I finish James and start the Women of the Word plan? I was thinking of reading 1 Corinthians, because I think it would be a good one to follow James (based on topic). I’m really enjoying writing the Word, though, and I think 1 Corinthians would be too much to tackle in a week. Maybe 1 John?
    Have a great day!

  2. Thank You! So awesome, love it when you bring the scriptures to live reading and video!
    Love the printable and study journal notes.

  3. Friends, Lifeway stores has the book on sale for $5. I took that as God’s encouragement for me today! Looking forward to being with all of you. Celeste

  4. Thank you for this. I love the Lord with all my heart, but I have been struggling. I believe God is using this to draw me closer to him to. I have lost my motivation and hope. I haven’t felt the same joy I use to have. Thank you for being obedient and allowing God to work through you.

  5. Just got my book in the mail today! Looking forward to reading and studying God’s word! Now to print out the study guide and write the word plan! God Bless!!

  6. Can we still benefit through the discussion even if we don’t have the book? Unfortunately I don’t have it and it is not in my current budget.
