I’m Katrina Wylie, the executive team leader for the Words Department for #P31OBS. With the study just around the corner, we thought you may be wondering how you can have a successful OBS. So I’m excited to share with you today, 3 simple steps to do just that! Are you ready?
Step 1: Study
Sounds obvious, right? But what all does “study” involve? Here are the basics we recommend:
- Read the Three B’s (Book, Blog & Bible) — We’ll be reading two chapters of Listen, Love, Repeat by Karen Ehman per week. We’ll also have a new blog post daily, Monday through Friday, to provide encouragement, accountability and opportunities to dig deeper into your Bible – all with a mix of OBS fun!
- Utilize the Study Companion — This FREE resource will help you stay in the know and on track with weekly study schedules. Plus some fun freebies too: verse of the week phone lockscreens and Facebook banners, printable journal pages and more! Simply click here to download your companion. Then view it daily on your device OR print it and keep with your study materials.
Step 2: Connect
While we love Bible study here at P31 OBS, we’re also BIG on community! So after you’re done studying the “Three B’s” each day, we also encourage you to connect in our community. Here are two tips to help you get started:
- Share in the Comments Section on the Blog — At the end of each blog post, you’ll find a “Let’s Chat” question inviting you to share your answer in the comments. Or, you can simply share your study thoughts for the day. Either way, we love hearing from you!
- Read & Reply to Other’s Comments — This is where you get the chance to meet and mingle with your fellow OBSers from all over the world! Plus, echoed throughout the comment thread is where we find that encouraging and comforting “me too” our hearts yearn for. You’ll realize we’re not alone in your listening and loving struggles. Praise God!
Step 3: Repeat
Now that you know steps 1 and 2, simply repeat the pattern –> study, connect, repeat … daily, and all five weeks long!
Can’t wait to get started with you on Monday!
Benjamin Franklin once said, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” With his words in mind, when and where will you plan to study and connect? I’ll be studying in my living room each morning, before my kiddo wakes. And connecting during lunch each day, from my home office 🙂
