Week One

Welcome to the first day of a 9-week study through the workbook devotional A Woman After God's Own Heart.

This started as a way for me to have some accountability in my personal time with the Lord. The current season of my life makes it hard to be part of a study so I decided to give an online option a try.

How does this work?
It's easy: each Monday you will check in here at this blog and comment as part of your accountability, I will have post up by 9am each Monday. I will have a list of a few things for you to comment on as well as your homework for the coming week.

For today:
In the comment section below please introduce yourself
1. leave your name, first name is OK
2. state in which you live
3. a brief bit on yourself, kids, job etc.
4. yes that you read your intro to the workbook
5. a one sentence commitment to complete this 9 week study, "I, Michelle, commit to this 9-week study."

Hearing God's Heart
grab your Bible and read these verses, I've got mine now let's go!

Luke 10:38-42, our time with the Lord is so valuable, what comes from that time can not be taken away from you
2 Timothy 3:16-17 our time in the Word is time hearing what God has to say, His Word is applicable to all areas of our lives from wife/mother/friend to every good work designed for us to do!

This Weeks Key Truths:
say these outloud
-Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
-Those who abide in Christ will bear much fruit.
-We can do everything through Christ, who gives us strength.

did you say them outloud? do it again either way *smile*

HOMEWORK THIS WEEK:
Workbook Peps:
Complete week one, days 1-5, pages 7-21

Book Option Peps:
for those of you who do not have the workbook but want to read the book I will include a weekly chapter reading for you. While the content is similar it is not identical week to week so we'll give it our best- and I think it'll work out just fine.
read chapters 1-2

See you back next Monday, November 9th.

You can do this.
Carve out 30 minutes of each day, let the kids watch movies, eat ice cream, play in the tub or let them veg-out on facebook/x-box 360.



Why the Woman Woman photo on my sidebar?
Mainly because she is my favorite female superhero, I mean who wouldn't want an invisible jet and incredible strength!?
While a perfect woman does not exist we can all be Wonder Women, woman who in the midst of life can be in awe struck wonder of an amazing God and with His help make the world wonder what we got?
