I don't know about you but I'm lost if I don't have a Bible study at hand. I kid you not, my soul ached at the finish of Peace for the Journey. Closing the back cover for the final time, I sat in pause and sighed. What in the world could I find to top this walk of peace? That's what I thought then and why, just today, I encouraged the author Elaine Olsen to write another, ensuring her I'd be on my knees praying her through the process.
Since we all need to keep our heads in God's word, Olive Leaf Ministries is offering a help. For the next week (Sept 3-10) we are offering the Draw Me Near 10-week Bible study and correlating Leader's Guide to all blog and Facebook friends. (For a sneak peek visit OLM's home page and read an exempt from the study and leader's guide. See the right column.)
Bible study and leader's guide descriptions:
DRAW ME NEARHow is your level of intimacy with God? Is it all you want it to be? Better yet, is it all God wants it to be? Throughout history, man has struggled to achieve closeness with the heart of God. But there is more to intimacy with God than simply knowing who He is. The real secret lies within our selves and our willingness to be honest with Him. Honesty is truly the best policy. This is particularly true when seeking God. This 10-week study is specifically designed to deepen your walk with God. Whether a seasoned Christian or brand new, it will help you draw closer to Him. The journey is challenging, fun, and enlightening as it takes you to places you've never been before. You'll begin your study on one shore only to find yourself on another as you embark on your new voyage with God.
This guide is specifically designed to teach you how to conduct a "Draw Me Near" Bible study in your own home, community, or church. It includes step-by-step directions on how to organize this study, how to conduct your first meeting, behind the scenes planning a leader should do between each class, and how to handle various situations that might come your way. It also provides you with weekly discussion questions and even gives you examples on what to write or say when following up with the women of your group.
TO ENTER the giveaway, enter a comment on this blog sharing why you'd like to receive the study and guide, then on September 10th, a winner will be selected. Be sure to tell your friends and church women's leaders about this study too as they plan for fall and spring. It's a 10-week journey sure to lead hearts closer to God!
