Anxiety 

Whether you've worried about a big history test or been consumed by family drama, we've all experienced anxiety in different degrees. Ultimately, anxiety can become all-consuming and life-constricting! In this study, we will help dissect how anxiety is a sign of distrust of who God says He is. By reading about what God's Word declares about worry and stress, we can better swat any doubt in light of God's goodness!

Bloodline: Five unlikely women in jesus' family

If we are going to be honest, most of us skip over the lineages in the Bible! They seem boring and sometimes irrelevant. However, the Bible highlights these family genealogies because they are important! In Matthew chapter one, Christ's lineage from Abraham to David to Jesus are recorded. But, did you know there are five women listed among all the men in His family?

In this study, we will closely study each of these women and their importance. If you want a refresher in God's view of women, this study is for you!

The Comparison Game 

Sometimes we live life on a teeter-totter--measuring our worth against others. Instead of placing our hope in who Christ says we are, we often fluctuate between pride and insecurity. As a result, our joy, identity, and peace are fleeting. By comparing our beauty, talents, spiritual life, family, friendships, dating relationships, and possessions, we lose the joy Christ desires for us to have.

If comparisons have been wreaking havoc on your joy, this study will help you unpack the comparison areas you often face and replace lies for truth.

Flourish  

Most of us want our spiritual walks to be characterized as flourishing. The heart of the matter isn’t if we want to flourish in our relationship with Christ. Rather, it’s how do we grow in our walk with the Lord—especially when our feelings and other factors get in the way?

Between the choice of small faith or radical, life-draining legalism or life-giving love, feeling powerless over sin or powerfully yielded to the Holy Spirit, we would always want the latter. This study teaches us how to weed out things tempted to wedge between our desire and discipline to seek the Lord wholeheartedly.

Fruit of the Spirit: A study of galatians five

In Paul's letter to the Galatians, he talks about what it means to walk by the spirit. He reminds these believers how love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are by-products of the Holy Spirit. 

This study looks at each of these fruits from an Old Testament and New Testament perspective in order to help us learn the importance, power, and purpose of these fruits.

How to study God's Word 

Let’s be honest: what does it really mean to have a quiet time? If you’ve ever asked yourself this question, you are not alone. Most of us have often thought: Do I sit in silence for a while and call it a day? Do I read a few verses from the Bible or devotional?  What does it mean to actually spend time with God? 

Luckily, this study breaks down what it means to study the Bible in bite-sized and practical steps. Having a quiet time or more understandably, spending time with the Lord, is a treasure; it can become one of the most fulfilling and cherished parts of our day.

The Importance of scripture

The Bible is more than just a book. It is living and active! We often feel like we should read Scripture. Yet, the why sometimes gets lost in translation. This study reminds us of God's purpose for His Word, how it penetrates our thoughts and heart, and ultimately why it should be one of our most treasured possessions this side of heaven.

If you struggle opening your Bible, let this study jumpstart your joy and practice of reading God's Word to know Jesus better!

mercy and grace 

Words like “mercy” and “grace” are often sprinkled into prayers and conversations in an attempt to make ourselves sound like we know what we are talking about. But, in reality, sometimes we don’t understand what those words mean. Though they are similar concepts, they are very different at the same time. However, they both have real significance in our lives and relationship with God!

This study will wreck your view of God if you feel too broken or too damaged to be loved by our loving God!

Power of prayer  

Prayer is one of the most talked about disciplines, yet one of the least underutilized! If we aren't careful, our prayer lives can resemble a Christmas list of requests instead of deepening our relationship with Christ. 

If you want to better understand how to pray consistently and powerfully, this study is for you!

scandalous women of the bible 

In Biblical times, women had the sole purpose of raising children and helping with the housework. They were seemingly unimportant.

But that’s not how God sees women.

All throughout Scripture, the Lord fights for, cares after, and gives purpose to women. Time and time again, He used simple ladies to take part in restoring the relationship between God and His people. Choose this study to hear about some of the coolest women in the Bible!
