Duty or Delight Bible Study Starts July 11, 2011

By popular request, our Summer Online Womens Bible Study has returned! One of the books we’ll be reading during our six-week bible study is Duty or Delight: Knowing Where You Stand With God by Tammie Head. During this womens bible study, we’ll explore the six steps to take us from duty to delight in our relationship with God.  We’ll break down these steps into weekly sessions- Chosen, Redeemed, Promised, Supplied, Commanded, and Secured Victory. Each week we will focus on one of the six steps. In the back of the workbook you’ll find “Confidence Boosters” based on scripture and small cards to carry with you as you memorize a scripture truth each week. When our online bible study concludes in six weeks, you’ll have learned how to stop the spiritual insecurities and ignite your faith. Author Tammie Head assures us “You can stop living in guilt, confusion and duty. You can delight in the God who delights in you.”

Please join us once a week on Monday as we have an online discussion of Duty or Delight. You’ll read your workbook at home each day, answer the workbook questions, and then join us on Monday’s to participate in a group discussion. There is no set time for the discussions, just show up and participate! We recommend you register for the Womens Bible Cafe by email so you’ll know when the discussion has started.

We’re leading two bible studies this summer. You are welcome to participate in one study or both, the choice is yours.  Pray over your decision and see where the Lord leads you.


About the Duty or Delight Bible Study (from Lifeway.com)

Tammie leads you on a journey of taking your relationship with God from a duty to a delight. This is a subject she’s lived, and you will enjoy her candid transparency. God is not looking for us to perform for Him, He’s looking for us to delight in Him. Many of us hit invisible barriers when we seek the Lord with questions like: Is God happy with me? Does He really love me? Am I doing enough? Why do I feel guilty all the time? Why can’t I seem to grow more spiritually? Join Tammie on a journey to overcome spiritual insecurity using six foundational truths from Ephesians 1:3-23. You will discover the beautiful news that God has not only chosen you for a deep, soul-satisfying relationship but He also constantly supplies everything you need to know Him this way. If you’ve been longing for a deeper relationship with God, this study is for you!

You need to have a copy of the member book in order to participate in the study with us. We will start reading week one on July 11, 2011

    I know I’m jumping into this study three weeks late. But I’m here!

  • Theresa Morgan says:

    I’ve been feeling GOD tugging at me – you need to commit time to me!! And this study looks amazing. I know I am late but boy – there is so much GOD has to show me!

  • Beth says:

    Hi, my name is Beth and I was searching for an online bible study this morning and came upon Women’s Bible Cafe…so excited to have found exactly what I was looking for at this time in my life. I’ve just been through a big out-of-state move and am kind of confused about where my path in life is heading. Feeling more grounded in my relationship with God would be a good place to start. Ran out today to get a copy of the workbook and although I’m late starting, I hope to get much from this study!

  • Cheryl Butterfield says:

    There are times in my life that I struggle with duty. My head knows that I am chosen by God, but sometimes my heart does not keep up! I am so excited to participate in this study.

  • Tammie says:

    I want to turn Duty into Delight. I want that new feeling like I had when I first became a Christian.

  • Tammie says:

    Hi, I’m Tammie.I am from South Carolina. I posted a couple of days ago about receiving my book as a gift from my sister. I get a little confused when doing a bible study online. I have been playing around with the computer this morning trying to figure out where to post, sign-in, etc, and all that other fun stuff that comes along with computers. I have to finish week one and try to catch up with everyone else. Maybe I will cheat a little bit and just participate and fill in the blanks as I go along and get caught up that way.

  • Stacey says:

    I am starting this a little late, so I’ll have some catching up to do…but this study sounds so interesting! I’m from New Hamshire, and I definitely struggle with feeling an obligation or duty to my spiritual walk. I have known for some time that I am stagnant, not moving forward spiritually, and I’m not really sure how to get moving. I lack the motivation to read my Bible or devote to a prayer time, even I am involved in another study at church. I desire to know the Lord on an intimate level, to trust Him as completely as I do my own husband, and I know that kind of relationship requires intimacy. I am looking forward to what God has to show me through this study…

    Hi..I’m Sheree from SC, and I just stumbled onto this awesome website. I actually purchased this Bible Study, Duty or Delight, a couple of weeks ago, and have been reading and studying on my own, and how awesome to find a group of precious ladies participating in this study online, so I hope it’s not too late to jump in there with y’all (my southern accent shows online as well…LOL). So the question is “what challenges you most in your walk of faith: guilt, confusion, or duty. I would have to say “duty” because sometimes I can get in such a routine, or should I say rut, that my beloved Bible studies and spending time with God becomes more dutiful instead of delightful. I want to turn that back around and hear fresh words from God that are soooo exciting and new!! I look forward to “chatting” with y’all online 🙂
    Many Blessings,
    Sheree <

    Hi! I’m juley from NC. I am very excited to have came across this website just yesterday! I look forward to jumping into a bible study head first. I want to deepen my walk with God. I have allowed life to lead me instead of God lead my life & I want to rearrange that phrase!

  • Donna Banks says:

    I’m Donna from Michigan. I am trying to move more to the delight side of my faith and less from the “duty”. I love spending time in the word, but my prayer life still feels more from duty than love.
