Leaning on our Shepherd {Week 1}

September 3, 2019

Hi everyone!

Who else is excited to dive into Psalm 23: The Shepherd with Me? I’m Anna Currin, one of your study leaders, and I’m looking forward to walking through these next six weeks together as we learn more about the depth of God’s love and compassion for us.

I can’t think of a better way to kick off Day 1 than hearing from Jennifer Rothschild herself! In today's video, she is joining P31 OBS Manager Kendra Schwarz and sharing her heart on why she chose to write this study. Who knows, we may even learn some other fun facts like how she likes her coffee!

Need instructions to access closed captioning or the video transcript? We’ve got you covered!

For those interested, here’s where you can get the “safe” necklace and declaration cards referenced in the video.

As we get rolling, here are a few more important things for you to know about...

Weekly Memory Verse:
Over the next six weeks, we’ll take a deeper look at each verse of Psalm 23. This week our focus is verse 1: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Through studying this verse, we’ll learn what it means to really lean on our Shepherd, and what that looks like in our own lives.

While studying, we also have a challenge for you! We thought it’d be awesome if we all commit to memorizing each weekly verse. That way, by the end of the study, we’ll have all of Psalm 23 etched in our minds and hearts! We even had a Psalm 23 bookmark designed just for you, to help with memorization!


Week at a Glance:
This is another free resource available to help you get more out of your study. It’s key to help you plan for each week and stay on track. You'll find it in each Monday and Friday blog post and I encourage you to download and/or print it to use as we go along. In it you’ll find things like:

  • A free download of the first week’s bookwork (in case you're waiting for your book).
  • A suggested study schedule.
  • Giveaway details.
  • Verse memorization tips.
  • A PDF with step-by-step instructions to help you complete the activities in the book.


See? These were good to know about, right?

Alright Psalm 23 OBSers, now that we have all we need for a successful week, let’s get to it!


I look forward to connecting with you this week! 

Reflect and Respond:

What are your first thoughts when you think of Psalm 23? Are you familiar with it, have memories of it, excited to study it?

All comments will be entered into this week’s giveaway!
