Today marks my 300th post. I did consider, on this momentous occasion, making a list of 300 Things About Me.
But I decided that was a bit much. You’re welcome.
I am here to make an announcement, however. Beginning on Monday, June 8, I’m going to hold a Bible study here on this 300-post-old blog.
Of course, by then, it will probably be a 317-post-old blog. But you know what I mean.
I’d like to invite you to join me in studying Jennifer Rothschild’s “Me, Myself & Lies: A Thought Closet Makeover.” It’s a six-week Bible study encouraging women to “clean out the junk in their thoughts and replace these hidden negative thoughts and failures with positive truths from God’s word.”
I don’t know about you, but I talk to myself a lot. And a good majority of that talk isn’t exactly positive. Sometimes it’s so bad that I would never say it out loud . . . to someone else. But I sure am willing to say it to myself, over and over and over.
So I could use some help replacing those negative thoughts with God’s truth. This study “teaches how to replace the lies you may have been telling yourself with the truth from God’s word.” I can use some of that.
Here’s a short video describing the study. (I tried to embed it here, but it didn’t work for some reason.)
Each week of the study, we’ll have a live chat on my blog. For those unable to make it to the chat, I’ll have a post up for comments as well. This study is video-based, and you can download each week’s session for individual use. But if you can’t watch the video for any reason, you can still participate in the study!
June 8 is just a few weeks away, so if you’d like to participate in the study, order your book soon. And please, invite your friends to join us, too!
So, who’s up for it? Who’s with me?
what a great idea! although how in the world can you have a live chat on your blog? i guess you blogging convention people know it all! :-)
I’d love too!!! My mother-in-law is doing this study at her church in TN and loves it!
Great idea! So the first chat is on June 8th, right? Monday?
I’m so glad you’re doing this one! I was there when they shot the video (my mom was in the audience) and I know it is great video. I was on maternity leave when the book editing was done, though. It is a GREAT and IMPORTANT topic. Can’t wait to see how it progresses!
Hmmm, this sounds really interesting and valuable for me. I definitely do negative self-talk too often. Just this week in an email to my sister I commented on how the subject we were discussing is just another thing that I’ve failed at.
Not sure if I’ll be able to join in just yet though. My friend, Carol, and I usually do a summer Bible study, but I got an email from another friend this morning asking if I’d come to her Bible study this summer. Now I have to talk to Carol to see if she’d rather do a one-on-one, or go to Laura’s study with me. Taking on two different studies at once would be overwhelming.
Yay!! I’m so glad you girls are thinking about joining me!
Brenda – I completely understand. But if you decide to join us, you are more than welcome!!
would love to join in…what time are you thinking of doing the live chat?
I’m planning to do the live chat at 8 pm Central Time.
This is such a great idea!!! :-) I would love to take part but I will be up at camp . . . but I hope it goes so so well! :-)
ps – that books sounds amazing though! :-)
