As we studied 1st & 2nd Peter, one thing was impressed on me… We need to know our Bibles. To not just hear the Word preached to us, but to intimately know what God is saying through our own personal knowledge.
There is a hunger that is growing deep within the hearts of women. A hunger to read and to study, a hunger to search out Truth, a hunger to spend time alone with God each day.
Let me share some of my experiences with you…
I started facilitating for Love God Greatly shortly after the birth of my fourth baby. I was hungry for time with God, and yet with three young children and a baby, it was almost impossible to participate in any Bible study. Sunday mornings were difficult enough just getting to church, where my husband pastors. I’d spend the service trying to keep them quiet and relatively well behaved, then come home to read my husband’s sermon because I’d missed most of it in the service.
I needed more, but I knew that I couldn’t do it on my own – life often gets in the way of our true needs. I needed the accountability that comes with not just participating, but facilitating the group – that way, I couldn’t take a day off when things were busy, because I knew women would be counting on me. I could do my study while nursing a baby at 2:00 am, or involve my children as their evening devotions. Not doing it was no longer an option.
It was a commitment, and one that I am so grateful that God led me to. I started with a small, faithful group of friends – some of whom still study with me! My groups have grown in number, as has my family – I’m currently expecting our sixth baby in August! And I still rely on my groups… Yes, I am their facilitator. But really? My group members have become dear friends, truly sisters in Christ. Their study has enriched mine, drawing me closer to Jesus. When I’m having a difficult day, I am free to share my heart with them. When they struggle, we all support each other in prayer. When someone celebrates, we all celebrate!
Is it easy? No. But it’s so incredibly worthwhile!
If you have never facilitated a Love God Greatly study, but feel that God is prompting you to facilitate our upcoming study of Psalm 119, you are welcome to apply for our New Facilitator Training.
This one week course will teach you all the basics you need to know to facilitate a group. How to find the facilitator resources and set up your group, how to SOAP, how to post, and where to find help. It’s designed for women who have never facilitated a study with us before. This training will need approximately an hour of your time each day, at the time of day that suits you best.
Please know there are a limited number of spots available in this training course which is intended for women who already have a group of friends to lead this summer. If you would like to be a facilitator for our summer session and participate in our upcoming training, invite some of your friends to study with you, then apply!
