Laying the Groundwork {Foundations Week}

September 7, 2020
“40 Days” by Proverbs 31 Ministries | P31 OBS Study

Hey there!

Pop all the confetti!

Today is a huge day for Proverbs 31 Ministries, and I am elated you’re here for this milestone moment!

Today kicks off Foundations Week for our newest study, The Answers to Your Deepest Longings: 40 Days Through the Bible. You’ll hear more about why we are calling it Foundations Week in the video below. Before we get to that, I think it’s important I introduce myself!

My name is Kendra Schwarz, and I’m on the Online Bible Studies team at Proverbs 31 Ministries. I'll be joining you each Monday in a study video right here on the blog along with my friend, Hannah Schindler. Hannah works on the First 5 team. This study is something we’re doing ministry-wide for the first time ever. In today’s video, we have our president of Proverbs 31, Lysa TerKeurst, also joining us!

Here are instructions for accessing closed captioning and the transcripts, if needed!

Like we said in the video, Foundations Week is all about laying the groundwork for all the longings. I’d love to set you up for success when it comes to Foundations Week, so I’m going to let you know what you can expect out of each post. For the rest of the week, our main goal is to prep our hearts FOR the Word and IN the Word!

We’ll do this in two ways.

Number one! You’ll find a study tip that will allow you to put something into practice. This could be anything from how to schedule your time to helping you get involved in community.

Number two! We’ll help you prep by listing out the reading for each day. You’ll find it below, under “Today’s Reading.” You’ll see what to read in your Study Guide and what Scripture to read.

Today’s Tip: Remember your why!
We all signed up for this study for one reason or another. Whether it’s because we want to learn how the whole Bible fits together or we’re doing it because a friend *gently* nudged us to sign up, write it down and stick it somewhere you remember. This will help you on the days where you don’t want to study or you want to give up. Remembering your why helps you remember why you’re here.

Today’s Reading:

It’s prep time! I can’t wait for you to experience all there is in our 40 days study!


Let’s Chat!

Okay, everyone! We want to know. What’s your why? Why did you sign up for this study? (NOTE: We use Disqus as our blog commenting system. If you haven’t set up your account, we invite you to give it a try!)
