Details About the I John Fall Bible Study

Last week we announced our  new Fall On-line Bible Study in the book of I John.

For those of you who have printed out the free reading plan here is what you will do beginning Monday, September 19th. 

Get your Bible and a fresh journal.  Read the passage of scripture for the day and apply the SOAP method.  Here is what SOAP stands for:

 1.  S- Write out the scripture passage for the day. 

2. O- Write down 1 or 2 observations from the passage. 

3. A- Write down 1-2 applications from the passage. 

4. P- Pray over what you learned from today’s passage. 

By the end of the 12 weeks, you will have written out the entire book of I John in your journal. You will have meditated on every single verse in I John as you have written it out and pondered each verse bit by bit.  Doesn’t that excite you to know God’s word this well!!!  It really excites me!

When you come to a passage that you do not understand, I recommend Crosswalk’s Bible Study Tools found here:http://www.biblestudytools.com/ On this page in the lower right hand corner, you can find links to Bible dictionaries, commentaries, concordances, and other Bible translations, etc. I have been using this website for 8 years! I LOVE it! 

I recommend Matthew Henry’s Commentary’s found here for gaining more background understanding to the passage we are SOAPing. 

Our Web Schedule:

Angela is on maternity leave for the first month of this session  - but when she returns – on Mondays she will be kicking off our week in God’s word.  Wednesdays are feedback day – we hope you will share what you are learning in the comments section and visit the bloggers in our Women In The Word Wednesdays Blog Hop.  On Fridays, I will be posting one-minute videos that correlatate with our study for the week.

We look forward to taking this journey with you! 

For more details about what Good Morning Girls are all about or how Roll Call works – please watch these videos and if you still have questions  read this post.

We can’t wait for September 15th to begin!  Please spread the word and this link to your friends! Invite them to join us!

Walk with the King!

  1. Looking so forward to this study! We are doing our own little group here. I just love this though, because I can apply it elsewhere as well. Thanks Courtney!

  2. I’ve been working with a group through an event on Facebook to memorize 1 John 1… & move on from there! How wonderful is Gods timing!

  3. Christine says:

    Can’t wait to begin this journey with my sisters in Christ and grow more spiritually through the word of God! Thanks Courtney!

  4. Priscilla Romero says:

    I´ve been with a GMG group for the winter and summer studies but all girls went apart for different reasons. Now,I´m starting a small group with my girl friends! We are all living in Costa Rica. Do we all have to register here on sept 1st?
    Thank you!

  5. Aundrea Cherry says:

    I love this! With our CC (Classical Conversations) we are memorizing 1 John 1:1-7 in English and Latin. I am excited to do a study. Will the videos be available to view on days besides Thursdays? We meet with our CC group on Thursdays.

  6. Aundrea Cherry says:

    Sorry — I meant we are memorizing John 1:1-7 (not 1 John). Either way — what a great study

  7. Priscilla – Costa Rica – wonderful!!! You can enroll your group on the message board under the title “Roll Call”! So glad you still have a group even if the others fizzled :)! Way to keep at the discipline of being in God’s word!

    Aundrea – we are memorizing John 1 also in CC!!!! :)!


  8. Delighted to find your special space here through Karen Ehman! I want to be a Good Morning Gal!

    “I delight in Your decrees; I will not neglect Your Word.” Psalm 119:16


  9. Maybe I’m missing something, but The 15th is on a Thursday. Roll call is the 1st – 15th. Is the actual reading starting on the 19th? Just trying to plan the physical group for my local girls to enhance our FB group. Thanks!!

  10. Sharon – welcome! We are so glad you are here!!!

    Danielle – you are right – we will take Thursday and Friday to warm up and get to know each other and then the study in the book of I John will begin on Monday the 19th!

    Great question :)!

  11. Sounds great! I look forward to getting started! :)

  12. I am so excited to start this fall bible study and I praise God for this wonderful website of women looking to learn more about Him! Thank you ladies for your hard work in this ministry!

  13. Rene Latting says:

    I’m wanting to join a group, but I’m hoping to find ladies who are local to me. I’ve been part of a few groups before and online is great, but I would love to meet with ladies periodically throughout the study. We just relocated to Sachse TX (a Dallas sub). We haven’t found a church yet. Next Sunday we will be visiting LakePointe @ Firewheel. It’s about 2.5 miles from our house. I like their presentation online. If anyone local is reading this and have a GMG group and have an open spot, please let me know (renelatting@yahoo.com). Thanks!

  14. Priscilla Romero says:

    Hi Courtney!
    I´m living in Costa Rica. I commented before. I´m in a spanish predominante community therefore most of the girls that want to join do not know any english. So, I´m wandering if you would agree in letting me translate all the info in spanish for them. So they would be able to follow the study. I´m a profesional translator and interpreter so you can be sure that it´ll be word by word.
    Thank you very much for your response!

  15. Love the new logo! Sounds exciting!

  16. Hello,
    I just posted my introduction and a request to find a group on the forums. I can’t wait to join in on September 19th and have printed out the reading plan. Is there anything else I need to do to make sure I am ready to start in the fall? Looking forward to meeting all of you wonderful ladies and getting started!

  17. Hi Courtney!
    Thank you so much for this! I can’t wait to join the group learn, share and grow with you all. Praise God for you!

  18. Hailey Altamirano says:

    Thank you for serving these women in this way!!! God bless your hard work!!!

  21. Priscilla Romero says:

    Thank you very much Courtney!!! I´m not a blogger and the group I´m opening is on facebook with the girls from here. I did linked the original posts from GMG and the video. Only half the group understands english but I did give you all the credit for these! Thank you! Many blessings!

  22. I’m looking for a group and don’t know where to sign up.

  23. Emily – welcome – we are so glad you are here!!! Go to the link above titled “Message Board” then look at the threads and click on the one that says “If you do not have a group, form groups here.” You will find TONS of like minded women on the board!!!
