Bible Reading Challenge Check-In

It’s Monday! How many of you have children starting school this week? This is our second week of school, so we’re settling into a bit of a routine here. I’m not such a fan of the school year, honestly. I love summer so much. But like it or not, here we are and it’s probably a good thing.

I do love that I am able to read more consistently and frequently with school in session, in spite of the crazy timing of all the pickup and dropoff times for my crew. I’m still adjusting my Bible reading plan a bit. One day last week I read through the rest of the book of Luke, so I’m not exactly on schedule.

Thanks for praying for my Tarah girl and her broken arm last week. We’re over the trauma and she is beginning to assert her independence again. ;)

How are you doing with the reading? Do you have a moment to check in and let us know how your quiet time is going?

See you tomorrow!

FREE Bible Word Search Puzzles

When I was young, my mom kept Bible word search books and crossword puzzle books on the end tables in our living room. I’ve always loved word search puzzles! And I’ve found that my kids love them too.

Upon attending the  Logos Women in Ministry summit a few weeks ago, one of the new-to-me Logos Bible software features introduced was the word search puzzle feature. You can type in any Bible passage and the software will generate a word search puzzle from the passage. How fun is that!

I wanted to share this screenshot with you so you could easily see how to create your own Bible word search puzzles. In the main screen of the Logos Bible software, head to the “Documents” menu. In the dropdown box, you will find “Word Find Puzzle.”

Upon clicking those words, a new window will open and you will see an empty field in the upper left corner of the screen to type in your chosen passage. I wondered if word puzzles is something you would enjoy doing also, so I decided to create a packet of fun for the gospel of John.

You may remember that the gospel of John Bible reading plan I created is available both as a free printable and within a free Bible app.

Today I’m offering a free printable Bible word search booklet for the entire gospel of John. You will find 21 puzzles in all, one for each chapter in the book of John. Hooray! My inner word geek and Bible lover feel unified through this project. Click HERE or on the graphic below to open and save the .pdf.

While this is just the beginning of some awesome Logos Bible software features I look forward to sharing with you, if you’re interested in purchasing this incredible Bible study software, use the code RACHELWOJO15 to recieve 15% off your Logos purchase. You can find out more right here.

I’ll hush now while you release your inner word geekdom.

Happy Word Searching!

Women’s Bible Studies by Topic

bible studies listed by topic

Today’s post is a project I’ve been working on for some time. Women’s Bible studies are not always easy to research. You can focus on finding the study by author, by book of the Bible, by topic, or by Bible character. Also, there are many different types of studies. Book studies with guides. DVD studies with books and guides, no homework studies,  and I’ve probably missed a few. Regardless, as you can see, there is a ton of variety in curriculum and teaching styles.

I think sometimes God calls people to study the Word and then share what they’ve learned with others, only for those called-out ones to think “But Lord, this has already been done.” Can I just tell you after all the research I’ve been doing lately, just in case you haven’t figured it out- the Bible is inexhaustible. Truly, it is. And we’ve barely scratched the surface of teaching the Bible.  Just look at this list of topics and how much more God has to teach us through his word?

So today I’m excited to unfold this list of Women’s Bible studies by topic and I want you to help me out. You’ve probably completed a Bible study that was your favorite topic or one that I missed on this list that you loved and if you can leave a  comment, then we’ll all know about it, right? Be sure that your suggestion is more than a book in that it includes a Bible study guide, whether within the book or an additional book. Sound good?

Also, I’m excited to introduce a new page to the site: Bible Study Directory. It’s the perfect “Let’s figure out what Bible study God is leading us to and we’re looking for” beginning. And we’ll be adding to it. Just look at all those topics that need to be filled! So keep me posted on your favorites and enjoy!
