I’ve been biting my nails, anticipating today, like it’s Christmas morning! Because today, I’m launching my new Bible study geared for new Bible students and the teachers leading them. And I have a really big, really sweet gift to give away!
Sweeter than Honey: Cultivating an Appetite for the Word of God is a five-week discipleship guide based on Psalm 19 that offers first-time Bible students and their teachers hands-on cooking lessons for feasting on the Scriptures, helping them become women of the Word.
Part 1 helps women cultivate an appetite for God’s Word and the One whom the Bible is about, Christ, the Living Word.
Part 2 contains simple and practical steps for self-feeding on God’s Word despite busy schedules or the lack of a biblical ground.
For new Bible students
New students of the Bible will learn how to study the Bible by:
–Cultivating an appetite for God’s Word (and learning what keeps you from desiring it!)
–Reading the Bible contextually
–Interpreting passages based on what the author intended to say
–Faithfully applying the Bible’s principles (without resorting to legalism)
and most importantly…
–affirming the trustworthy nature of God’s Word
For new Bible teachers
Great books on how to study the Bible abound. But what sets Sweeter than Honey apart from the rest is it is also written for Bible study teachers and women’s ministry leaders – particularly first-time teachers or leaders who are discipling women from an unchurched background.
Discipling unchurched women looks differently from discipling women who have grown up in the church. Sweeter than Honey takes those differences into consideration and, together with the free Leader’s Guide, offers teachers a step-by-step guide for helping new believers learn how to prepare a meal from God’s Word.
New Bible study teachers will learn how to guide other women through the Scriptures with:
–Ideas for engaging the heart of an unchurched woman
–Tips for working with groups of different sizes
–Info for hosting the material as apart of a women’s ministry event or retreat
–Tools for explaining how the Bible came to be and why it’s trustworthy
–Access to free printables and visual aids for Bible study
–A simple, reproducible method for Bible study
–A 31-Day Reading Challenge discipler and disciples can take together
Sweeter than Honey is for any woman who wants to become a woman of the Word – a woman who craves the sweetness of the Scriptures because she has tasted the sweetness of her Savior. It is my hope that this book both encourages you and equips you to nourish yourself on God’s Word each day and to invite others to his lavish table!
This week, I’m giving away a complete Bible study bag packed with of everything you need to cultivate your appetite for God’s Word!
Trust me when I say that it is truly a measure of my love for you that I’m able to part with this adorable bag and pencil case. On multiple occasions, the honeybee-obsessed troll that lives in my head offered up a surprisingly well-reasoned defense on why I needed it. I mean, the teal polka dot lining on the pencil case almost did me in.
Bees + polka dots.
I hope you feel loved.
The lucky winner will receive:
–1 paperback copy of Sweeter than Honey
–1 canvas beehive book bag
–1 honeybee pencil case (filled with my tears – just kidding)
–1 ESV journaling Bible, hardcover
—Pigma Micron pens (6 pk)
—Bic Xtra-strong mechanical pencils (24 pk) (my favorite pencils for Bible study because the leads don’t break!)
