This year my word of the year is Focus. I want to spend time to make sure I focus on what I am doing. So, to start the year off right, I am putting my focus first on God and the Bible studies I have available to me.
I really want to focus my time on spending more time with God this year. That means I must focus on my Bible studies. Which ones I want to do first, how I want to do them and how I am going to spend time on them each day.
I have to say, I am one who loves to start something, but I don’t finish it. This is true with my Bible studies also. I start them and get sidetracked. This is not what I want for 2020. I want to make sure to finish these, and I will be telling you about them each month throughout the year.
For January, I am focusing on two studies. And I don’t even know if the second is really a study versus a class. Let me tell you more about them.
I did a study at church on The Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilken. During this study, I fell in love with Jen. I craved hearing her speak. This is a sign of a good study. When this study was over, I missed hearing Jen speak. I wanted more. So, I researched her. I found that I could get some of her older studies free on her podcast, so that is what I am working on this month.
I am currently working my way through the book of Exodus with Jen. This study is a step by step study. I was able to print the study book from her podcast at Flower Mound Women’s Bible Study. After the introduction, I have daily readings and studies to do. Every week I can listen to Jen explain what we read through and hear her view on it.
I am on week 2 of this study and really focusing on finishing this study. I will tell you more about what I am learning as I learn it. Please, keep coming back to see what I am learning!
Another study/class that I am working on this month is the Unbreakable Faith course offered by Pilgrim’s Rock. This is a high school course, but one that I really want to take. I got access to this course through my leadership position on the Homeschool Review Crew, so you can get my input and that of the crew members using this in their homeschools.
This is a course that I didn’t think I would need, but after devouring The Box within 2 days, I figured maybe God was telling me to take this course myself. This is a course that gives you unbreakable faith in a world that wants you to doubt your faith at every turn.
I figure, raising kids in this tough world, this is a course that I should take, not only for myself but also for my kids. If I can have unbreakable faith in the God that I love, I can pass this faith unto my kids.
I also have a line of studies lined up for me to work through as I finish these. They are great studies from what I have seen so far. I can’t wait to tell you about them as I get to them.
