Meet Your Bible Study Leaders

Hey Y’all! πŸ˜‰ Β It’s Melissa again. And I’m so super happy to say that our 21st OBS, Keep It ShutΒ by Karen Ehman, begins in just 3 DAYS!!!

As we prepare to begin, I want to introduce you to the leaders who will be working up front and behind the scenes during this study. Remember, they aren’t just your leaders, they truly want you to consider them friends. And after you watch this video, I know you are going to feel right at home.

Do you see a video right above this sentence? If not, CLICK HERE!

What did I tell you? Β Aren’t they just fab? Β Can’t you tell they are just your everyday REAL women: no masks, no pretending, just sharing real life with you! Your life is crazy (obviously we could tell, sweet Erin had to record her video to you from her bathroom just to get away from the noise of her home LOL), but your Bible study doesn’t have to be! At least we hope it’s not!

Thanks to EVERYONE who joined our conversation yesterday! Three winners were randomly selected from all of the comments. These three ladies won a Keep It Shut Conference Call Series!

Congrats to:

1) Jessica:Β jlynneolson

2) Deb D.:Β debandkend

3) Shyla:Β s.bailey0813

Β Anyone is welcome to join our series. It begins February 2nd! We moved our live calls back to the evening (yes we heard you!); they will still be recorded for anyone who can’t be on live, and this year we have them at a new and greatly reduced price! So excited about this!

Let’s Chat:

This is where you get the chance to join the conversation, and we hope you will. Let’s get to know each other, ok? Β We’ve told you a little about ourselves, now you tell us a little about yourself:

  • What is your name?
  • Where are you from?
  • Are you ready to begin Keep It Shut?

*****GIVE AWAY ALERT***** Also include the names of all of the leaders in our video above (including me) and you will be entered to win our Bible studyΒ book,Β Keep It Shut. We are giving TEN of them away! Winners announced Monday.

If you don’t have your book yet, no worries! Β We will post the first 3 chapters EVERYDAY next week! That way you won’t get behind!

See you on Monday for our first official day of Keep It Shut.

  5. Junith Malone says:

    Well,
    Melissa, Jessica, Deb D, and Shyla;
    I’m a single mom of two from GA serving each day best i can in the sight of Yah as a proverbial woman!! With an 18 year old son and a daughter, 12, just entering her teen years it can be hard to just SHUT IT UP sometimes! I’ve made many mistakes, but i do strive each day to do better with holding this wild tongue of mine. Patience is surely a virtue and the older i get the more i realize how wonderful and a precious gift that grace and mercy play!! As i learn to just…shut…up!! With sisterly love…

    Junith

    I am Louise from Plover, Wisconsin and so ready for this lesson. My first test was last night when my mother said something very rude over the phone to me (she never thinks before she speaks) and I calmly said Mom that wasn’t very nice and I will call you back in a few days and promptly hung up before I could say some of the things that I was feeling. For being such a small part of our body, the tongue can cause so much pain and damage. Help us Lord!

They do not know of my husbands actions yet. On a brighter note, I am a Nurse and enjoy zumba and reading. I am hoping this study will help me greatly personally on how to handle situations where I don’t really know what or how to say something, and where I would have probably said the wrong thing or said nothing when I should have in the past. This will be my first OBS, and I can’t wait.

    I would also appreciate prayers for our marriage and family.

    Thanks to the leaders Melissa Taylor, Nicki Koziarz, Stephanie Rauel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe and Nichole Stern

  178. Hello,
    I am Judy Samuel and I am from Bangalore, India. It is the IT hub of India. I live with my darling husband, Michael and our little love bug, Sarah.
    Melissa, I am so excited to be doing this OBS with you and this wonderful new team, glad to see Nikki again and looking forward to getting to know, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe and Nichloe Stern.
    I enjoyed doing the ‘Am I Messing Up My Kids?’ OBS and actually missed being a part of the community, even though I am in touch with P31 through the daily devotions which are such a blessing.
    I decided to do this coz its what I really need to be who The Lord wants me to be and my mouth has been an unwelcome hinderance and has caused a lot of pain to me and those I love. I pray this study will be a healing balm and set me on the path to permanent restoration through Jesus.

    Hi everyone! My name is Kimberly Chappell and I live in Greenville, NC. I’m a single working mom to my sweet 9 yr old son, our new kitten, and our dog. I tend to not speak up for myself and then I explode when I reach my limit. That hurts the people I love and hurts relationships. That’s not something I’m proud of and something I desperately want to change! I’m hoping this Bible study with Nicki Koziarz, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe, Nichole Stern and Melissa Taylor will help me learn to keep things I shouldn’t say to myself and to express myself in an appropriate way when I need to.

  182. Barb Shewan says:

    I’m Barb, a wife, mother of 3 (two adopted!) and bus driver. Not really a bus driver…I’m a mini-van driver! I feel like I’m in our mini-van most of the day! I know that’s not really true and our family is blessed to be able to send our children to Christian school, but sometimes I wonder! πŸ™‚ Anyway, this is my first OBS and I’m looking forward to get to know Melissa, Nicki, Steph, Erin, Missy, Melissa, Sarah, Stacy and Nichole alot better! πŸ™‚

  183. Tara Rivers says:

    Tara
    Carencro, La
    Got my book and I am ready to begin this study for 3 reasons: 1. Because I really need to know when just to keep my mouth shut and 2. When I do have something to say I need to know the right way to say it.
    I tend to be very blunt. and 3. I have recently been the victim of some very vicious backstabbing and gossip. Now, I am not saying I never gossip I do sometimes but I REALLY want to change.. I am looking to learn to temper my mouth so that I will not make someone else feel like I felt when I found out what was being said about me.

  184. My name is Kathy and I am from Denham Springs, LA … I can’t wait to start this study and actually learn how to KEEP IT SHUT! LOL

  185. Hi, everyone! I’m Nancy, and I live in Graham, NC, just 20 minutes from UNC- Chapel Hill. I am a stay-at-home mom of two children, ages four and seven, which we adopted at birth. I am looking forward to the study as I never seem to know when it is best to speak up or “keep it shut”…sometimes I don’t speak at all (I have been told I am a good listener), but at other times I feel like maybe I said too much. I guess it’s a delicate line, and I’d like to have my words have a lasting, positive effect. I’m interested in learning more about what the Bible specifically has to say about this! I’m thankful for the OBS31 leaders: Melissa Taylor, Nikki Koziarz, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe, & Nichole Stern. Looking forward to learning and “meeting” everyone!

Like everyone else I am excited to dig into Keep it Shut and into God’s word as we learn to use our words to glorify the Father. James 3:8 says, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. Lord, I know this too well. I pray that God will work in our lives thru this study as we all try to be the Christian wives, mothers, daughters, friends, caregivers (whatever our station) that God has called us to be.

  209. Hello Ladies.

  250. Hi, my name is Natalie and I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where I was born and raised, with my husband and three children (18, 15 and 9). I am very involved in my church and am a full time business professional. This is my first online bible study and I believe it to be an answer to my often-repeated prayers for wisdom and discernment. I am frequently and anxiously blinded by such fear that I will say the wrong thing, be misunderstood, “overstep”, or demonstrate foolishness or ignorance in my communications. I desire the ability to communicate (verbally, written) with wisdom and to reflect the light of Christ with my words and actions, and it is my goal to not be timid, self-conscious or insecure about living and speaking as a Christian, especially in a non-Christian world. I want to learn to consistently live and communicate His truth and love to my husband, my children, friends, colleagues, clients and others, and serve others as Christ would have me do. I pray that this study will help me to be a better woman, wife, parent, professional, friend and disciple, as He intends me to be so my little light can shine!

  251. Hi!! My name is Stacy and I am from northeast Ohio. I am so glad I found this on-line study group about learning to use my words to build people up instead of tearing them down. I catch myself gossiping with a certain friend and I always feel so bad about what I say when I am thinking back about the day. And sometimes I tell myself not to say anything mean, but as I am thinking those words, I still gossip! I need to break this “habit” and I really really cant wait to learn how to “KEEP IT SHUT!!!”

    Hi everyone…Renee here…I’m REALLY looking forward to what The Lord is going to reveal to me through this study! This is the third one that I’ve done and they all have been an incredible blessing to me!
    I don’t believe there is such a thing as “luck” in a Christian’s life…. But I’m certainly praying that I will be chosen to recieve a book.
    Our leaders are:
    Melissa Taylor
    Nicki Koziarz
    Steph Raquel
    Erin Peters…..my name was Peters when I was married
    Missy Pettigrew

    Sarah Travis…love your voice! πŸ˜€
    Stacy Lowe……my niece’s last name is Lowe
    and Nichole Stern… My oldest daughter’s name is Nicole

    I can’t really share where I’m from at the moment because I am actually homeless at this time with no income. Which makes it difficult to purchase the book needed for the study.
    Long story short… My ex-husband was very abusive con man and managed to take everything from me. Which included my home which I had worked for and purchased before we were married. My health has kept me from getting make on my feet and it’s also very difficult to get a job that supports me at the age of 61.
    As you have already realized my situation is much more complicated then I could even begin to share with all of you in a blog.
    I certainly would covert all of your prayers. God bless all the OBS leaders and everyone that is signed up.
    Always in His Grip!
    Renee

  331. Hello everyone,
    My name is Shaquanna and I live in Georgia with my hubby and 5 kids. I am so ready for this Bible Study. I just can not wait to see how God speaks to me and I just want to be a woman who uses her words to encourage those in my family and around me.

    Words have so much power and I want to be able to speak life and joy into others, rather then hurting those that God puts along my path. So yes I am so thrilled and can’t believe we are almost there. Already have my book and it’s been so hard to keep my hands off of it, lol.

  332. Sally Peatow says:

    I was shy in high school about expressing my opinion. Then I became a people pleaser and expressed the opinion that I was “supposed to have”. Now I have found my voice, but my words do not always go through a God filter. I hope that this on-line Bible study will help me find the God filter before the words come out of my mouth.

  333. Bethany Swartz says:

  353. Elizabeth says:

    Hi y’all. My name is Elizabeth. I am from Georgia. I love this online bible study team and recently discovered it last year. It is so AWESOME. It encourages me, helps me, and motivates me to just keep trying to stay in God’s word day after day, no matter how long or where I am-work, in the car, or with my son. I am so ready to read this book, I have already started, oops, was I supposed to wait until next week? I can’t stop reading this book. I love books and I love online bible study. I love to learn more about God and find out that many other women are JUST LIKE ME. As you can see, I talk too much too-that is why I just keep typing more and more, lol, just like one of the teachers-so I need to learn when to KEEP IT SHUT most definitely. However, I do need to learn when to speak up when someone is running all over me or taking advantage of me. I work with a lot of people who like to tell me what to do all the time, but if I ask them to help me with something, they look at me like I am crazy or roll their eyes. Hello? Does anyone else know what I am talking about? I need to learn to speak up for myself, but do so with GRACE, and I mean a lot of GRACE. I am so excited to get to know all of our new leaders: Erin, Sarah (love the accent) wish I could visit Scotland one day, Melissa, Nicki, Stephanie,Missy, Melissa S, Stacy, and Nicole. PS If I win a book I would give it away to my sister n law because I got super excited and already bought mine. lol

  354. My name is Nancy and I am from Durham, NC. This is my second OBS. My first experience made such a positive impact in my life that I am looking forward to God showing me how to keep my mouth shut (or at least to seriously think about what comes out of my mouth).

    Melissa Taylor, Nicki Koziarz, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe, Nichole Stern.

For years I have been a part of our Women’s Bible Study at our home church, but nowadays my plate has become fuller and more demanding at home. You could imagine how thrilled I was to find this OBS. Just because I am not at our church physicalle on Wednesdays, doesn’t mean that I am not connected with beautiful sisters in Chrsit. It doesn’t mean I am not building relationships and it doesn’t mean I am disconnected. It just means I am right where I am supposed to be in this season of my life. Thank you PS31 for doing this, for putting together this OBS and giving us sisters all around the worls to be able to connect with one another, pray together and for eachother and just grasp on what the word of the Lord teaches us.
    Here are the leaders that I met today;
    Nicki Koziarz, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe, Nichole Stern, and I can’t forget you my friend the beautiful Melissa Taylor!
    Thank you ladies for dedicating yourselves to a greater purpose and for allowing the Lord to bring us together through here. I love you all!!
    Yes! I am so ready to begin “Keep It Shut’!! I’ve shared the e-mails with my mother and videos and she is very excited for me and wants to join as well. and she will! I am exccited for this season.
    God bless you all!

  400. Hi Y’all! I am SO looking forward to this study! I’ve missed the fellowship with everyone and I sure need to learn to zip my lips sometimes (boy, don’t we all?). I live on about 10 acres in a little town outside of Kansas City MO. I’m transplanted from Knoxville, TN and I tell people, you can take the girl out of the south, but you can’t take the south out of the girl…. I don’t like that dirty 4 letter word that begins with S and ends with W. But I love my husband A LOT, I must, we’ve lived here about 18 years, and this is where God seems to want us πŸ™‚ The weather this week has been amazing (50’s) and my naked winter toes have been in flip flops for most of it, lol. We’ve decided we’ll move south when hubby retires HAHA

    The leaders are Melissa T., Nicki, Steph, Erin, Missy, Melissa S. Sarah, Stacy and Nicole. I already have my book but I would LOVE to bless someone else with it if I win.

  408. Hey Ladies. My name is Hope and I live in Pasadena, MD with my husband Patrick, our daughters, Amanda (19) and Destiny (14), our three dogs Max, Oscar and Salsa and our bunny Gatsby. It’s a full house around here. I’ve been doing OBS since the very beginning in 2011 and was blessed and privileged to be part of the very first OBS FB small group. I am so excited about this study. Control over our words is such a huge issue and for me it’s a very personal one because this is an area I struggle in greatly. I grew up in a family of yellers and people who were not kind or careful with their words and I learned a lot of unhealthy ways of expressing myself and God has been so faithful helping me heal and change in that regard but I just know that this study is going to do a real powerful work in me. I can’t wait to get started. God Bless you all.

  409. I’m Angie from Ohio, this is my first OBS with P31. I am excited to get started!

  410. Hi!! My name is Carrie. I live in Missouri in a tiny town called Freeman, with my wonderful husband of 4 years and our 14-month old son.

As a wife, it’s so important to me that I encourage and honor my husband with my words and actions, as well as the other people in my life!

    I am from Lisle Illinois. I live about 35 miles west of Chicago. I am excited to begin the bible study because I have a big mouth and would like to learn how to honor God with it.

    I live in Southeast Texas. Close to the LA border. I am really excited to start this study. I am ready to let the words that come out of my mouth be life to my family and the people around me and not speak death. This is my biggest struggle. I want to honor God and my family.

  413. Alina Yang says:

    I can be honest and blunt, especially to my husband. Need to learn when to say something and when not to say it! Looking forward to this!

  414. Rachel Sanders says:

  417. Jane Senn says:

    Hello from Lexington, South Carolina! I am Jane Senn and I am sooo excited about this Bible study! “Keeping It Shut” (my mouth,that is) is something I have difficulty doing everyday. I was taught to be a bold, strong lady that is not easily swayed by the opinions of others. However, being a Christian woman trying to live as God wants me to, I realize there is a balance needed! I am so happy to be learning how to be bold and strong in Christ while learning how to “Keep It Shut!” Thank you for this opportunity!
    Looking forward to becoming closer to Christ with these strong and bold Christian women:
    Melissa Taylor, Nicki Koziarz, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Mellisa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe and Nichole Stern

    Melissa Taylor
    Nicki Koziarz
    Stephanie Raquel
    Erin Peters
    Missy Pettigrew
    Melissa Sherlin

    Stacy Lowe
    and finally….a North Carolina girl, Nichole Stern!!!

  419. Danelle Carmichael says:

    Hello ladies!! My name is Danielle but I go by Dani. I am SO excited I stumbled upon this OBS! I have been praying greatly about what comes out of my mouth and how to use it to impact God in such a great way. I (like most people) tend to say a lot of things I regret… I come from a big family where you have to be loud and quick to get a word in edge-wise. So my prayer is to slow down, and think before I speak. After all, I have a baby girl, Chloe.. Who is only 6 months. She watches her mama very closely, so I want to be an example of how a Godly woman should act/talk!

    Can’t wait to learn with you all!!! πŸ™‚

  443. Michelle Evins says:

    Hello. My name is Michelle. I currently live in Sunrise, FL. i have two daughters but are pretty much grown. My youngest turns 18 in a couple of weeks. This would be my first online bible study so it may take some time to get use to this. I usually attend bible study through my church but I got a bit bored with the studies along with that my daughter’s activities interfere with me attending them. I decided to try this out and also for the fact that I REALLY need to learn when to shut up since I love to talk and have a tendency to tell the truth when people really can’t handle hearing it. I do have a few questions though. I received an email stating that the study starts February 2 and then another email stated next week. I know we are all coming from different time zones but next week for me is not February 2. Also, what time will this study begin time zone wise? Just a little confused and hoping someone can straighten me out. Looking forward to interacting with all the leaders Melissa Taylor, Nicki Koziarz, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe, and Nicole Stern.

  444. Stephanie says:

    HI I’m Stephanie I’m from central IL. Very happily married for 17 years with 2 amazing daughters (22 & 10). I’m really looking forward to the study. I’ve really taken notice of God in my life in the past 2 months and how He so intricately He weaves every part of my life. Leading up to the study, how He’s place other books, studies, and scripture in front of me on this exact subject! So excited!

  445. Teresa Gines says:

    Hello everyone. I have been looking forward to beginning this study with our leaders and all of you. This will be my first online bible study experience. I REALLY like to talk—my husband says it’s verbal overflow πŸ™‚ I believe I received affirmation of my need to participate in this study this morning. I asked one of the mothers at my exercise class this morning if she had a “baby bump” because I heard her sharing with the instructor about growing their family and….she’s NOT pregnant. I feel embarrassed all over again just typing it!! I know I NEED this. It was great to see these leaders faces as they introduced themselves: Melissa Taylor
    Nicki Koziarz, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe, and Nichole Stern

  464. Jeanie Benson says:

  465. Melissa 2 says:

    My name is Melissa. I am from Louisiana and am a single mother of two boys. I have always had the ability to speak before I speak. I am hoping that this will help me to make a better effort at stopping that. I don’t want to break my sons down…I want to build them up! I am a lot better than I used to be, but I feel there is still room for improvement. I am looking forward to starting the study with you all. πŸ™‚

  466. So excited and looking forward to the bible studies. This is my first with P31 and will mark the begining of many bible studies and events for me with p31. The topic is an area which I have been praying for the holy spirit help to help me deal with, this is an answered prayer for me. I have been richly blessed by the daily encouragement which have refreshed and encouraged me in my walk with Jesus Christ.

  467. Rebekah C. says:

    Hello! My name is Rebekah and I live in Atlanta, GA with my husband and 19 month old daughter. I have signed up for several studies in the past. I signed up for my first when my daughter was first born and although I had great intentions for every study I signed up for, I have never actually completed. It makes me sad to say that, but I just couldn’t stay on top of the daily emails or all the readings while learning my new role as “mom”. I almost didn’t sign up for this study because my daughter is now going through a no napping stage so I thought “When would I ever be able to do this study?!” But, my mom signed up and encouraged me to do it with her so I am going to try to discipline myself to MAKE THE TIME. πŸ™‚

  468. Hi! My name is Ashley & I currently reside in the great state of Texas. I am excited to begin this journey with all of you awesome ladies.

    Monique here, first off Erin Peters I can so relate to your love of talking! I have often said that “my Papa God did not give me the gift of writing, but the gift of Gab!” πŸ™‚ which is probably why my Director and Counselor the Holy Spirit has lead me to this study and my Logos Word for 2015 that just happens to be “Listen”!!!!!!! In all seriousness, I enjoy and would someday love to start providing creative & unique social gatherings/retreats to the women in my local community and beyond. Gatherings where the Holy Spirit has the freedom to Ministering the Fathers Love, Restoration, Authenticity, Acceptance, Forgiveness and oh so much more that we have inherited as His daughters & freely received through the Greatest & Most Lavished Gift of Love given, EVER! Jesus, who willing laid down His life so that we may willingly take hold of ours. I want the legacy I leave to be one of encouragement and not one of discouragement to all of my Papa God’s Leading Ladies! This is were “Listen” walks in stage Left, while talking exist stage Right. πŸ™‚
    Oh yeah, I live in the small,small town of Goliad, Texas, I have been married, now 32 years πŸ™‚ to my man, am a mama to 3, and a Grammy to 5. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    I am so excited, this is my first online Bible study ever! I don’t know how it works but i have a super busy schedule and end up reading the Bible while I take a bath and read Bible stuff on an app during my 30 minute lunch break at work. Looking forward to learning more and i guess I’ll figure out how it all works once it starts.

  514. Jennifer Berges says:

  518. Marian Corrigan says:

    Hi Everyone–This is my first online Bible Study, and I think it should be a good one for ME!! I really identified with Erin in her video, and loved that she was doing the video in her bathroom. I just gave my life to GOD a couple of years ago, and enjoy learning about his word. I have participated in several Women’s Bible Studies at my church and have learned a lot, and I’m usually sorry when they are over. I am separated from my husband at the present time and have filed for divorce, so this Bible Study will help me a lot in handling the loneliness that comes from living alone. I do have one son, who lives close by, along with my 3 granddaughters, and 6 GREAT grand kids (5 boys and 1 girl ranging from 8 years to around 3 months. The one little girl is getting spoiled just a little bit!! Now, do you think that is unusual??) By the way, I live in Middlebourne, WV and Proverbs 31 Bible Studies was recommended by a friend who had taken the last study.

  519. Kimberly Everett says:

    Hello to everyone! I am SO excited to start this OBS! I have never done an online Bible Study before!
    I am married to the love of my life, Bobby, who is Pastor here at our amazing church in Manomet, MA!
    We are a blended family which makes us mom and dad to 7 (yes…SEVEN!) and Grammy and Pop to 4.
    I am a nurse for over 30 yrs and I love anything to do w/ Christian Ed…ESP VBS!!

    I THINK this is where we are supposed to put the leaders names, so here goes:
    Nicki Koziarz
    Stephanie Raquel
    Erin Peters
    Nichole Stern
    Stacy Lowe
    Missy Pettigrew
    Melissa Sherlin
    Sarah Travis
    Melissa Taylor
    Praying for an amazing Bible study experience!
    Blessings! Kimberly

  520. I think this is my first P31 online study but definitely not my first with P31. I hail from Glen Allen, VA, just outside Richmond, and I’m joining in because two of my IRL Bible study buddies are doing this study. I can surely use some help keeping my mouth shut!

    And the leaders are: Melissa Taylor, Nicki Kozlarz, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew (we met at a conference and she is incredibly sweet), Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe and Nicole Stern.

    Nicole Stern

    Looking forward to this coming Bible Study!

  522. If there was ever a time in my life I needed this Bible Study and the great Christian women on here, esp those in Group 10 (love you Sabrina Ebert), it is now. My world is overwhelmed, yet my center is God, without Him I would totally be lost! It is because of God’s love that I have not given up on my husband and walked out the door. After 28 years, I’m tired. My children are grown and independent and I so long to be so too! I know longer want my husband to hold HIS money over my head and use it to BULLY me. I know God is using me, but it just gets hard sometimes! BTW, sorry, my name is Alice Houser and this is my second online Proverb31 study. I love them. I live in Orangeburg, South Carolina and on March 27th, 2015 will have surpassed my first death sentence my oncologist gave me three years ago when I was diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer. I am here for a reason and can’t wait to see what God has in store for me!

    • HI Alice….I know where you live..we go through there on the way to Fla! Wow..what a celebration you should have! So glad you disproved the doctors. Science only knows so much…GOD is our GREAT PHYSICIAN! You put your hope and faith and trust IN HIM. Listen to the medical teams..but take all they say to our maker! My husband is a walking miracle. Had a TBI 4 years ago . Fell off a ladder at work. Long story short, was not expected to live and if he did, would not do well. Today, because of prayer, belief and God’s hand, he is doing great. You wouldn’t know he fell if I didn’t tell you and you met him. I can testify our God listens to prayers and he still is in the business of miracle working. Are you watching the foods you are eating? No preservatives, no artificial sweeteners or sugar? Will pray for you and healing!

  523. Autumn Hendrickson says:

    Hello all!

    My name is Autumn and I live in Richmond, VA. I am so excited about starting this study…I tend to have a big mouth which gets me in trouble some (well let’s say most) of the time!

  524. First I’m Jennifer and I’m from Ohio. I’m super excited about this online bible study. My bestie is doing it with me. I was telling my mom about it today because I need to learn to zip it.

    Thanks leaders Melissa Taylor, Nicki Kozlarz, Stephanie Raquel, Erin Peters, Missy Pettigrew, Melissa Sherlin, Sarah Travis, Stacy Lowe and Nicole Stern I look forward to interacting with everyone. By chance is there a Facebook group to go to that is for this study?

  525. Hi all! My name is Angela Ehlers and I’m from a tiny town in Kansas. I’m married, with four amazing children and one amazing grandbaby! I’ve been married for over 20 years and although it hasn’t been wedded bliss by any means, we’ve had some recent changes lately that led us both to God and I know each year is only going to get better from here! I look forward to truly falling in love with my husband all over again and living a life led by God. So glad to meet all the leaders today!

  526. Hi, I’m Tracy from Evansville, IN. I am so excited to get started! What an awesome group of leaders! Thank you all for what you do!

  527. Anxious and excited to get started on this study! I am a “word” person…spoken and written. I want to make sure I am saying what I think and am trying to say as well as recognize when NOT to speak….beyond the obvious. Never think that I am too old to learn. God gave me a gift with words and I want to use it in a way that brings him honor.

    • Forgot to share a little about me….I am challenged on some things on line..as in adding my picture to this sight! You just imagine me any way you want! πŸ™‚ I live in Charlotte, NC, am married 25 , almost 26 yrs in April. Have two daughters, one in college, a senior and one in high school, a junior. Also have two four legged babies…Kitson and Nick! I have a varied professional work background, most of it centering on customer service and/or sales. I love being with family and friends. I like to write, (poetry, prose, short stories, research, feature articles)and am working on my first book now.I love music..all kinds and am quite happy listening to music all day. It is therapeutic to me…can change a mood, can do so much. Rather have my music than a tv any day. LOVE the beach..all seasons. I think best there and do some of my best writing there. Outside of writing, I like to cook (but only for people that like to eat!) and photography is a major hobby. I am a sunrise/sunset chaser. You know how there are people that follow storms? I follow a sunrise or sunset across the city to get a picture. God is such a great artist…and he gives us a sunrise in the morning to start our day off in a beautiful way and in the evening, a beautiful sunset to remind us, there is always tomorrow and that the days worries are gone now and to give them all to him! I have a good sense of humor, like funny movies..and I have probably told you more than you want to know. So I cam going to zip my lips…or in this case, my fingers!

      • Stacy Lowe, P31 OBS Study Leader says:

        Hey, Suzie! Just had to say hello after reading about your photography. I love it as well! It’s so awesome to get to document God’s glory in that manner, isn’t it? πŸ™‚
