Romans Study on Our Porch

We are studying Romans chapters 6-8. This is a coed group of adults. All over age 45. You might not know that by last night’s discussion. Normally we have great discussions. Everyone does their homework and we all participate in discussion. Ron Duncan is a great leader: he asks open-ended questions, uses the leaders guide,…

Grand Forks, North Dakota

This weekend I am in Grand Forks, North Dakota at Grand Forks Air Force Base. My friend Casey invited me to a women’s conference here. Along with the women of the Prairie Rose Chapel, I will be studying Living a Life of True Worship tonight and tomorrow. This 40-Minute Study is written by my friends…

Coaching, and Leading Bible Study

Do I love and respect the women in my class? Do I show them I care about them? Do I listen to their thoughts as we discuss each passage? Even the ones who may seem immature and ignorant of the Word? Do I view all those in my class as precious children of God, worthy of love and respect?
If not, I have little chance of making a positive difference as a discussion leader.

Happy Birthday Kay

Kay Arthur turns 84 today. She and her late husband Jack started Precept Ministries International in 1970. She’s still traveling the world teach people to study God’s Word. I’m privileged to call her my friend.

Loving My Bible 

I’m “loving” my own Bible this week.  In Chattanooga at Precept Ministries International. In one week we are doing a seven week study of 1 Timothy.  Each morning we have a 75 minute group discussion followed by lectures. Some days we watched a pre-recorded lecture. Today we had Kay Arthur live followed by David Arthur…

What Can You Know?

Last month my husband and I spent a week in Chattanooga studying 1 John, 2 John, and 3 John at a Precept Ministries International Spring Study Program.  I love these intensive study programs!  As part of the study, we made list of what we can know according to 1 John. The author states clearly that…

Galatians Lesson Four

I spent the past week doing an intensive study of Galatians at Precept Ministries.  I posted this a few days ago: Halfway through lesson Four, Chapter Three of Galatians and my brain is about to explode! Plus, I’ve already spent a few hours with the Holy Spirit ripping junk out of my heart. These intensive studies…

Trip Log 2.4

No, I am not going to write a daily diary of what happened each of the past thirteen days! (Did I hear a collective sigh of relief?) That doesn’t mean this won’t be a long post. 😜 In my last Trip Log, I wrote that I was in Chattanooga for a couple of weeks. I’ll…
