WFMW - Backwards Day!


Okay bloggy world friends.... I have 2 questions.

1. I am looking for some sort of Bible study / devotion material for a group of 4-5 ladies once or twice a month. I would prefer something that didn't require preparation and reading ahead of time for the whole group. Just a simple lesson or devotion I can give for us to discuss.
I will not be using Beth Moore.
Right now I am considering I'll Bring the Chocolate, by Karen Porter. Is anyone familiar with this? Have you used it in a group setting?

Any suggestions?


2. I can't figure out how to make a picture on my sidebar a hyperlink. I can put in pictures and text, but unless there is a hyperlink button in the window when you add it, I can't get it to be a link. Help! :)


I can't wait to go read everyone else's questions.... you always learn so much! If you are bursting with great ideas, maybe you can help someone out by heading over to Rocks in My Dryer for this month's backwards edition of Works for Me Wednesday! :)

Hey, we have almost exactly the same signature! :)

I finally figured out the hyperlink code for images. I can't type it in this comments section, though. The easiest way I can think of to give it to you is to refer you to my Sunday Scrapping page (click on my profile)-- on the "join me" post I give a code for my button. You can copy my code, then replace my Sunday Scrappin' URL with the URL you want the link to go to, and you'd replace the URL for photobucket with the URL for where your image is located. I hope that makes sense!

Most of the Bible Studies I've used do require some reading and filling in of blanks or answering questions ahead of time -- but many ladies don't get to it, or at least all of it, ahead of time and do it as we go along, so I suppose you could do that with a whole group.

I've used many of Cynthia Heald's books (Becoming a Woman of Excellence, Becoming a Woman of Faith, and many more), God's Portrait of a Beautiful Woman and others from Regular Baptist Press (http://www.rbpstore.org/productView/showcat.cfm?cat=BS&sub=WN), A Look Within by Faith Taylor and That I May Know Him (both available at http://www.rbpstore.org/productView/showcat.cfm?cat=BS&sub=WN).

Kay Arthur has some new 40 Min. Bible studies that you can all do in class.

Hey! I've got a great idea and it's oh-so-exciting! How about each of the ladies just read a book of the Bible (or a number of chapters of a longer book) each day. Each lady can write down what she learned from her reading and bring it along to the study to discuss. It's really exciting to see what the Holy Spirit teaches everyone without reading what someone else wrote about it. I'm speaking from experience here with another group of ladies! We've been doing this for over a year and we are amazed at what God has been doing. :)

I led a study last spring using an IVP study by Jan Johnson called "Study and Meditation." It's part of a spiritual discipline series that I highly recommend.

Some did the study ahead, some didn't. Great discussion and application.

Jill Briscoe has some Bible studies which you read together as a group and answer together - no prep necessary. I did the one called Body language. It was definitely worthwhile.

We are doing one right now called "Naked Fruit" by Elisa Morgan. It is on the fruit of the Spirit and the chapters are short and the questions are brief. It is a very good book.

The women of faith has some good books out there that are short and good to do. For example: managing your moods, encouraging one another, living above worry and stress.
