Some Additional Bible Studies Are Happening!

Would you like some additional guidance as you study your Bible? We won’t start a new live online study until July. (I’m still praying about what chapter to study!) But we do have some other studies happening! For the rest of the month of April, I’m experimenting with a short mini-study of Psalm 1 on Instagram. This is a much more abbreviated sort of study, especially since it is only […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 8: Memorize

Psalm 91 is a psalm we need to have stamped on our hearts. We’re going to aim at memorizing the entire psalm, starting today. Don’t let the thought of memorizing sixteen verses intimidate you. Think of memorizing as just another level of studying the psalm. The Psalms, because they are poetry, are easier to memorize than some portions of Scripture. I think you’ll be surprised, too, at how easily you’ll memorize the […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 2: God

Today we’re going to start observing. We’ll notice all kinds of new things over the next few days as we slow down to take a closer look at what is actually in the text. What can we learn about God? To what is He compared? What does God say He will do? What are we told to do? What words and ideas are repeated? These are the kinds of questions we will […]

A 30-Day Study of Psalm 91 Begins on March 1!

We talked for years about traveling to the East Coast with our six children. It was one of those dreams you enjoy imagining but never think you’ll really do. But my father and stepmother decided we really ought to take that trip, and paid for all our plane tickets. So we went! I still remember very vividly our first few hours in Washington, D.C. almost eighteen years ago. If all […]

Time for a Change

  I once heard a speaker liken her life as a grandmother to water skiing full speed, while she desperately tried to hang on to the rope. I didn’t understand at the time. What could possibly keep a grandmother that busy? Now I understand. This last year has been an especially strange season in my life. John and I live in a travel trailer and sleep in a bedroom in […]

Now What?

As we’ve studied 1 Samuel 25, many of you may have learned some new Bible study skills. Now you have a chance to put those to work on your own! Below are some suggestions for continued study. Some of these ideas continue to look at themes and topics from 1 Samuel 25. Others relate to the Christmas season, and some move on to new chapters to study. We’ll never run […]

Share in the Blessing!

We’ve finished our study of 1 Samuel 25! This was the thirteenth free, thirty-day Bible study we’ve offered over the past four years. All those studies continue to be available free in the archives of this blog. What a privilege and delight it is to study along with you! Preparing and leading each study pretty much consumes my life for the whole month — from dawn until I can’t see straight at […]

30 Days in 1 Samuel 25, Day 1: Background

I’m excited to be digging into an Old Testament narrative for the first time in our Busy Mamas Bible studies! We’re going to study a real story about real people with real problems and temptations, and we’re going to see how our real God worked in and through those lives and circumstances. I believe we will be encouraged and strengthened through our study of 1 Samuel 25! As we study, we will be marking the text of […]

Finding Women to Follow, Plus a New Busy Mamas Bible Study!

1 Samuel 25 Bible Study - Abigail - art by Sarah Beth Baca

I remember when our children were little. I longed for an older woman to come alongside to encourage and counsel me. But we were a young church full of young families. (Now I, and a whole bunch more of us, are the older women.) In the absence of women that I could actually sit down and chat with over a cup of tea, I made my tea and sat down with […]
