Welcome to the Women’s Online Bible Study as we begin Wonderstruck by Margaret Feinberg. We have over 400 women from around the world participating in this adventure. This will be an incredible 7-week journey through the Wonders of God’s glory, power and deep love. My prayer is that you would find a renewed passion for the Lord and experience a greater understanding of His loving presence in your life.
We’ll be using the Wonderstruck workbook (sometimes called member book) with the white cover. Each lesson should take about 30 minutes a day, five days a week. We encourage you to pray before you begin each lesson, and only read one session per day. In the back of your workbook you will find the Wonderstruck Journal, where you are encouraged to write three wonders of God daily during the seven weeks of study. If you want, you can write these into a Spiritual Journal. You will also find six Scripture Memory Cards in the back of your book, which are to be memorized on the corresponding week. Video sessions are available for download from Lifeway.com, they are optional and not required for online study.
Create a daily appointment with God, and don’t let anything pull you away from intimacy with Him. A good plan is to read each morning Monday through Friday, allowing the weekend to make up any lesson you missed during the week. Keep your study time simple and free from distractions. You may find that keeping everything you need in one place will help you stay motivated. I have a basket with my Bible, workbook, journal, pens, highlighters, reading glasses and post it notes. If you are new to Bible study and don’t own a Bible yet, then use one of the many online versions at FREE sites such as BibleGateway.com or YouVersion.com or you may want to read this article~ How to Shop for a Bible
You are invited to participate in small group discussion via Facebook, or here at the website. To participate in a discussion here on the website, you will answer the questions below by posting a comment. The first week our small groups will have introduction sessions, where you’ll meet your leader and co-leader, as well as the other women in your group. You’ll have the option to connect with an accountability partner if you desire this for your Bible study.We’ll explain how the small groups function and help you get started in online Bible study.
Please note that the first week of study, the small groups are quite populated! Many women will visit the groups to “see what it’s about” and might visit more than one group during the week. The timeline will move VERY FAST during the first week and might challenge you or frustrate you. This only happens the first week….then the small groups adjust in size and the conversation is easier to follow. During the first small group meetings, you might need to refresh your computer screen F5 to keep up. You can always go back later and re-read the timeline for your small group or jot down the prayer requests. Mobile devices are not recommended, please use a computer to access the small groups if possible.
Our Prayer Wall is the place to reach out with your prayer needs and praise reports. Please visit the page and pray for those people who are asking you to lift them up in prayer. Pray for the leaders of this study and the women in your small group.
