Fruit of the Spirit Womens Bible Study

In just a few weeks, we’ll begin a women’s bible study Living Beyond Yourself, Exploring the Fruit of the Spirit by Beth Moore. By the time our study begins on September 14,2010 we’ll have almost 100 women participating from around the world. Some women have already completed this study and like myself, enjoyed it so much we are repeating it. Other women are new to bible study or this their first Beth Moore study.  For most of you, its your first online study. We gather here with one common purpose: intimacy with God.

During our time together, you’ll establish accountability with each other through group study and celebrate with one another at the completion of the ten-week womens bible study. Living Beyond Yourself by Beth Moore is written to underscore the basic biblical truths through a workbook format. You’ll be using your workbook and bible, any translation is fine. You can also use one of the many online bibles linked to this site under “resources” in the right column. Note the link for “Strong’s Lookup” where you can type any word from your study and translate into Hebrew or Greek to see the original meaning of the word.

Throughout the study, you’ll learn ways to apply the Fruits of the Spirit to your everyday life. You’ll answer personal discussion questions in the workbook and also comment in group discussions each Tuesday.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 NIV

    This is gonna be Awesome! I have done the last two studies and God has changed my life thru them. Thanks Christine for doing this

    • Christine says:

      You’re welcome. I’m having fun updating the blog and leading the study, God is so awesome and present in this group.

  • Joeanna says:

    This is gonna be Awwsome!

  • Amanda Taylor says:

    I have a question. I have never done a study before and I have been chatting with you about doing this study on twitter. I understand that I need the workbook but what about the audio or video files for this. I know I have to purchase them. Is it recommended? Will the video/audio stuff come up in our discussions. Thanks.

    • Christine says:

      Due to the cost, we do not have discussions about audio/video sessions and they are optional for the online study. They are however, very helpful to the study, its empowering to hear Beth Moore share her words in her own voice. If you are undecided, buy the sessions just ONE AT A TIME and only for the lessons that you want to go deeper into study. We do recommend them.

        Thanks! Now to talk things over with my husband 🙂

          Amanda, This is my third study with this group and I cannot believe how rewarding an online study can be. I just could not find a group close to my home. The current study of Jonah with Priscilla Shirer also had a video/audio component. I did not purchase all of them and still found the study very rewarding. However, if you are an audio learner or want the extra help in understanding the study…definitely consider the video/audio component. I especially think it is helpful with a Beth Moore study. Finances are tight for our family, but I decided that my spiritual life was a worthwhile investment for me AND my family. I hope you will join us for this study!

          • Amanda Taylor says:

            Thanks so much for the advice I talked things over with my husband. Whenever it comes to a money issue I always talk it over with him. We just got back from vacation so were trying to be more careful with how we spend it 🙂

            I am participating buying my videos and book today. I need the videos they keep me more into the study. I’ve tried just doing audio before but it seems that I need that face to face. I’m currently handicapped so seeing that face and interacting with the tv feels like real life to me I guess. I’m so thanful for online studies like this because of being handicapped actually my heart is to develop or to help grow a site like this in the future to fill the need for people in situations like mine. I’m just keeping my ears open and praying about it. In the meantime I’m so excited about participating in this study and so thankful that I found this website!

          • Christine says:

            We’re always looking for Bible Cafe leaders so you can lead one of our studies here, see how you like it before you branch out on your own study. I’ll have a blog post about this soon 😉

  • Sharon says:

    I bought the book and downloaded the cd’s. This will be my first (can you believe it?) Beth Moore study and I am excited about it. I feel focusing on the Fruits of the Spirit will be so enriching and at such a good time of the year when I really begin to think on giving more than any other time (I know though that is nothing to call home about I should do that all year). My hope and prayer is I will keep what I learn in my heart all year long.

    • Mary Ann says:

      Hi Sharon—I’m staying committed by buying my books ahead of time. I’ve got the Fruits of the Spirit and this weekend, during Lifeway’s Labor Day sale, I’m going to pick up the Jesus study workbook. Hey, if I buy the books, I’ve got to participate, right?

  • Renee says:

    I just got my workbook and audio CDs. However, I accidently ordered 2 sets of audio CDs. If you live in the states and want them, email your address to me:The first one may have them.

    UPDATE::they are now gone. Thank you for your generous gift Renee!

  • Mary Ann says:

    FYI—If you live near a Lifeway is having their Labor Day sale this weekend. If you received their flyer, there is a 33% off one regular priced item. Might be a good time to buy your workbook. (I already have my book and audio so I’m using mine for the audio for the next study!)

  • Lauren says:

    Looking forward to this one… I’m really enjoying Jonah right now. Also am working through some audio CDs a friend of mine had of Beth Moore discussing The Kinsman Redeemer… which is really fitting since I just completed the Kelly Minter’s Ruth study. I didn’t realize you had a link for Strongs… that is great! God bless each and every one of you!

  • Mary Ann says:

    So glad to be doing this one. This site is growing. I’m so thankful for the women who have found a place here! All are welcome.

  • Jennifer Deffendall says:

    I already bought book. Ready for it to start.

  • Sue Schwendemann says:

    My sister and I are going doing to do this study together online, and by phone (she is 95 miles away). We are doing the Jonah study together, and it is great.
    Can not wait to get started on this one. This will make going on the third study
    we have done with Christine, and by the way she is great also. Blessing to all.

  • Renee says:

    I almost decided not to do this because I had another Bible study from 2 years ago I hadn’t finished. I was going to go ahead and finish that one. However, I have changed my mind. I think it is very powerful to study in community; even online. If anyone attended the Beth Moore simulcast in April you probably felt how powerful that was. I believe when people are in community to study God’s word he makes a pretty large appearance.

  • Lisa says:

    This was my very first study when I start my walk with God. It was life changing for me. It’s going to be interesting to see how my answers have changed from 15 years ago. I’m looking forward to the study!

  • Chelsie says:

    I just got my book when I received my Jonah one. I am getting excited to start doing it and the plus is I already got 2 of my friends that are going to do start the study too 🙂 Very excited.
