#JesusCarbs, I AM the Bread {Week 1}

“Finding I Am” Study Leader, Melissa Taylor | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies | #FindingIAm #P31OBSWelcome to our first day of the Finding I AM Online Bible Study! My name is Melissa Taylor and it’s my honor to kick-off our 31st #P31OBS study with you!

Each Monday, I’ll be joined by author Lysa TerKeurst, along with OBS staffers Nicki Koziarz and Kendra Schwarz in a fun little video, where we discuss Finding I AM and other fun things with you! Like, why did Lysa TerKeurst use the hashtag #JesusCarbs when Kendra was eating bread this week? Why is there a “Day 5” of homework just for you #JesusOverachievers? Why is it OK if you fall behind? Watch the video to find out!

Oh, and we have closed captioning on all of our videos. So for example … if you’re at work and can’t watch it with the volume on, we’ve got you covered! Click here for the how-to instructions on accessing the closed captioning.

Can’t view the video above? Click here to see it on YouTube.

#JesusCarbs! LOL! Oh my goodness, I hope you can see that not only do we intend to learn a lot through this Bible study, but we have fun, too.

It’s important to us that you feel valued, connected and informed in this study. That’s why we’ve developed the OBS Study Companion. Click the button below to download your Companion, filled with all the resources of the week, like:

  • A phone lock screen with this week’s “I AM” statement
  • Week 1 Study Content (for those of you who don’t have your book yet)
  • Homework assignments
  • Facebook banner
  • Extra journal pages
  • Optional study events
  • Giveaways
  • And much more!

You are going to love this resource!

Let’s get started on Day 1! Get out your Finding I AM book, and begin!

Let’s Chat:

In this study, you’ll have 4 days of homework, then a video teaching on the week’s “I AM” statement from Lysa TerKeurst. Did you catch Saturday’s post with the first video teaching? 🙂

Meanwhile, I’ve found that to be most successful in a Bible study with homework, it’s helpful to make a plan. I pre-decided that I would do my Bible study each morning at my desk with a cup of coffee, my Bible and my Bible study book. I’ve carved out 30 minutes for this before I get ready for work.

So how about you? Please share with us how you are going to make time for this Bible study.

P.S. You may notice on page 17 there’s an activity with the wrong verse listed – everyone makes mistakes, right? Anyway, the correct verse is Luke 21:34. Happy homework-ing!
