Your life is crazy. Your Bible study doesn’t have to be. But if I’m totally honest, we do get a little crazy around here every now and then!
Welcome to your new Bible study group! I happen to believe this is the finest online Bible study and community you will ever be a part of! My name is Melissa Taylor, and I’ll be one of your leaders during our Before Amen study. Thank you for signing up–it’s going to be absolutely fantastic! I mean, how can it NOT be? Right? A study on prayer by MAX LUCADO?!?!
You are going to love this book. It’s simple and so easy to read, yet the message is deep & will change your life. Sarah Young, author of Jesus Calling, said it perfectly. “Before Amen has a winning combination of simplicity and depth … practical, enjoyable, and inspiring.” Sounds good, huh?
To participate in this study, you will need the book or digital version of your choice of Before Amen by Max Lucado.
We will be using our Bibles daily during this study. You can use whatever version you choose, in book form or Bible app. Before Amen has study questions in the back of the book, so that’s super awesome! Makes it easy to have good study and quiet time all in one book!
Each weekday leading up to the study start date, which is November 17, there will be a post on our study blog with information that will help you know what to expect and how to do online Bible study. It’s simple really, but if you are new to online studies, you may not get exactly how it works. Between now and the start of the study, we’ll give you all the info you need.
If you are signed up for the study, then you will receive all of the study posts directly to your email. If you are reading this now from your email, then you are signed up (unless a friend forwarded you this email … ), which we love! And we hope you will join us!) If you aren’t signed up yet, you can do that here.
I have a short little welcome message for you that I really want you to hear! This way we can officially “meet!” Listen carefully to everything I say because I have some VERY EXCITING news to share. During this study, we are offering something we’ve never offered before.

YES, as I explained, we’d love to see you join us for the upcoming Conference Call series! Details, the guest list and links to register are available HERE.
Okay, so who’s excited about this study?
Let’s get to know each other~
In the comment section, introduce yourself, tell us why you signed up for this study and what you hope to get out of it.
Everyone who shares will be entered to win the book Before Amen by Max Lucado and a small Bible! If you already have the book and a Bible, you can give it to a friend! If you don’t, well then this just might be your lucky day!
We’ll randomly select two winners to be announced on Friday. You must comment by Thursday, November 6 at 9 p.m. ET to enter.
Big thanks to Max Lucado for donating the books and to our extremely generous P31 OBS community for donating the Bibles.
I’m Melissa & I lead online Bible studies for Proverbs 31 Ministries because I love the Bible, learning to apply it to my life, and I love doing Bible study with friends! My life is crazy and I can’t attend a regular Bible study in my city, so that’s why I started P31 OBS! With this study, I hope to “calm the chaos in my world by embracing a new prayer life that brings peace and rest”.
Now it’s Your Turn. 🙂
