If you’re looking for a simple way to get more of God’s Word into your daily life, look no further than a monthly scripture writing schedule. I did this for most of last year (during our Spiritual Fruit of the Month Club) and really enjoyed it. But since there were only 9 fruits of the Spirit, that study officially stopped in September. So I took a break from scripture writing for awhile. 😬
Since we’ve started our new 2018 study, though – a series of monthly 7-Day Bible study challenges (a format that is so perfectly perfect!! I totally love it), we’ve also geared back up with our monthly scripture writing exercises. I enjoyed January’s on the theme of “A New Creation” SO MUCH. Alyssa did such a fantastic job picking out the right scriptures for that list! I came away from that challenge (part of which is the FREE scripture writing guide) with total confidence that God expects us – and empowers us – to be totally transformed through His Son. Good, good stuff, ladies.
February’s theme is “The Heart of the Matter” and I’m thrilled to be starting this challenge on February 12th! We’re excited about our topics and smitten with our graphics. 😉
We’re going to boil some things down and get right to the most important stuff! We’ll start out with “A Woman After God’s Own Heart,” then work on our stubbornness a bit, as we try to soften our hearts to receive God’s Word. We’ll work on taming the tongue, because out of the overflow of the HEART, the mouth speaks. Then we’ll look at where our hearts truly are by identifying where our treasure is. Our last devotional will be focusing on “The Heart of Her Husband” and how we want our spouses to safely trust in our hearts. We’ll finishing up by doing a worksheet on “Guarding Our Hearts,” in order to know when/how to redirect if we’re heading in the wrong direction. There will be social media challenges. There will be “extra credit.” There will be scripture. There will be stories. There will be pretty things. And I promise, promise, PROMISE you’ll love every bit of it, just like Monica B.! 😉
Just wanted to say I finished the extra credit. I must say these studies are fantastic!!!! I love everything about it. I know that sounds generic but I do. It’s honestly what I look forward to during my day!!! Thanks so much for your hard work in completing these!

But I didn’t mean to get all salesy on you…people do like to have info., though, so I gotta provide. 😉 You came here to get that FREE scripture writing guide and I’m here to make sure you get it, friend!
I know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that God will bless you as you read and write and ponder on His Word. May your February be richly blessed with a deeper understanding of God’s Word, sisters!
P.S. The 7-Day Bible study challenges mentioned above take place within 7 days, but they don’t have to be completed within 7 days! We know that life gets busy and people get the flu (especially this year – yikes!) so you’ve technically got, well, forever to complete it! But we also know that deadlines are good things – and if a Bible study is never completed, the student will not get the full benefit. And we want you to get the FULL benefit. This is God’s Word we’re talking about. So we’re intent on bribing you to finish. Haha!! But seriously, prizes are always a good pull for me to finish something! 😉 So each month we’ll offer a fun prize for those who complete the 7-Day Challenge within a month. It’s a win all around!
