This time of year is so busy! Calendars fill up with church functions and work/school events, and life can feel frenzied.
When we have a lot on our plates, it can be difficult to set aside time to be still before the Lord. However, that’s exactly what we need when our days are chaotic! We want to encourage you to start a new study where you’ll find encouragement even when life is busy. Here are some we recommend:
Breathe by Priscilla Shirer | 5 Sessions
One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life. This study will help you set boundaries and build margin back into your life for God.
Anxious by Scarlet Hiltibidal | 8 Sessions
Learn how we can practically take hold of the perfect peace that is only available through God as we dive deeply into His Word, embrace the practice of prayer, and live authentically in the support of our communities of faith.
TruthFilled by Ruth Chou Simons | 7 Sessions
Join Ruth Chou Simons in her study of the book of Colossians as she leads us through a practice of preaching gospel truth to ourselves by studying Paul’s example. Today’s culture offers no shortage of self-help, easy fixes, and worldly advice, but only the truth of God’s Word was meant to fill you up and satisfy you fully.
Matchless by Angie Smith | 8 Sessions
Who is Jesus? Why did He come to earth? How can I know Him? Join Angie Smith in this search for truth as she unfolds the story of our matchless Savior—His mission, miracles, and message. Through her signature wit and accessible style, Angie unpacks Scripture in a way that’s easy to understand, regardless of how long you’ve been studying the Bible. This study will deepen your understanding of Jesus through biblical, historical, and cultural insight and help you see Him less as an iconic figure and more as an intimate friend.
Finding I AM by Lysa TerKeurst | 6 Sessions
Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study, you will learn to trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment from knowing who Jesus is.
Encountering God by Kelly Minter | 7 Sessions
Spiritual disciplines are essential to a more vibrant spiritual life and knowing God more intimately. Join Kelly Minter as she unpacks the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice disciplines like prayer, study, worship, rest, simplicity, generosity, celebration, and many more. Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you’ll find that these habits of faith can create more margin in your life—providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.
We want to hear from you! Is there a study that helped you during a busy season of life?
