Welcome to #WalkInFaith

Happy Day to you! Hope everyone reading this is doing great!

My name is Melissa Taylor & I want to welcome all of you who have already signed up for our next online Bible study, What Happens When Women Walk in Faith, by Lysa TerKeurst. (If you haven’t signed up, you still have time! The study begins April 13th! Click here to sign up and get more information on the study.)

I’m going to keep this short and sweet, but I wanted to share a little info with you about a special, but limited-space, opportunity we have for our Facebook users.

Walk in Faith4SmallGroupReg

#P31OBS has smalls groups on Facebook!

If you are already signed up for the Walk in Faith OBS (online Bible study, that, along with the book, will provide you with all you need to participate in this study. But maybe you want a little bit more…

A few things you need to know first:

  • You must have a Facebook account to participate. We only have small groups on Facebook because Facebook makes it simple for us to manage groups. We aren’t trying to exclude anyone.
  • Each group has a trained Proverbs 31 leader.
  • Space is limited. We keep our groups small so they are actually small groups.  🙂

If you are interested in joining one of our small groups, click here for more information. And make sure you read it all, because we do have just a few guidelines for our group members.

I’ll be back next week after Easter to help get us all prepared, informed, and excited about the #WalkInFaith #P31OBS! (Those are our study hashtags for all you social media peeps!) Until then, spread the word and invite your friends to join us!

Hope you all have a beautiful Easter!

Before We Step Out in Faith

MelissaHeadshot2Hi! Are you getting excited? Our study begins in just 5 days! 

In case you haven’t heard, I’m talking about What Happens When Women Walk in Faith, by Lysa TerKeurst. The study begins April 13th and if you’d like to join us, you can sign up right here.  All you need to participate in this study, is the Walk in Faith book. (If you’ve already signed up, then obviously you can skip this step.)

I’m super excited to let you know about something new we are doing along with this study. Many of you have participated in our conference call series that have accompanied our online studies. They’ve been great, but we are changing things up a bit.  Why? Because we’ve learned:

Before we step out in faith, we need to step into the Bible. 

Our next series is:  Step Into God’s Word: The Walk in Faith Conference Call Series. Why are we so excited about this? Because for one, author Lysa TerKeurst and Bible teacher Whitney Capps will be teaching us all about the Bible! Here’s what you can expect:

Doing what the Bible says is a lot easier when we have a process for evaluating who wrote it, what it says and how to study it. This five-session series will help you:

  • Increase your confidence in understanding and applying Biblical truths
  • Understand what makes the Bible a unique, trusted, historical work
  • Build a basic Bible framework of the “who, what, when, where, why, and how” of Scripture to deepen your study
  • Gather study resources and tools to help you dig deeper in the Bible
  • Become equipped with all the basics and building blocks you need to make the most of your Bible study
Each session is recorded so you never have to worry about missing anything! You can listen at your convenience. If you want to be on live, you can. The live sessions will take place on Thursdays, 11:00 a.m. ET beginning April 16th. There are 5 total sessions.
Still not sure? Check out this video where Bible teacher, Whitney Capps explains. Her enthusiasm about God’s Word is over the top contagious! The teaching you will receive during this series is something that we would pay A LOT to hear at a conference. Yes, it’s that good. Don’t believe me? Just watch.
To sign up and for more information you can click the link in the sidebar or click here. These calls are for anyone! You don’t have to be signed up for the current study to participate in them.I hope you will consider joining us either for the Walk in Faith study, conference call series, or both! But if not, that’s ok. 🙂  I just wanted to let you know what’s happening here in P31 OBS.

Sweet Spring Blessings to Everyone,
Melissa

The Many Ways to Participate in P31OBS

Yes, I know. This Online Bible Study thing can seem a little overwhelming and confusing at times. Funny, because we aim to do just the opposite! So, my advice to you if you want to get the most of this study:

  1. Read the posts. Like really, y’all, read them. Most questions in the comment section are answered in the very post people comment on. It’s hilarious! And of course we don’t mind answering them, but you can save yourself some time by reading what we send you.
  2. Don’t fret when you can’t do all we offer. The ONLY reason we offer so much is because of our cherished friends. Yep, that’s you. You all are so different in the way you participate and do OBS. And we LOVE that about you! That’s why we offer a variety of options. You can do more. You can do less. Do what you like and what works for you!
  3. Keep the main thing, the main thing. Read What Happens When Women Walk in Faith along with us. We’ll provide encouragement, discussion and as much accountability as we can. If you do nothing else but this, you are participating in the Bible study.

Now that you’ve read numbers 1-3 above, here are some other options to accompany you in our Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies:
