Download the NEW GMG Leader’s Guide…TODAY

I am sooo excited to announce, for the first time ever, we are providing a special GMG Leader’s Guide!!! Woohoo!

I’d especially like to thank Whitney and Shonda Knowlton for putting this Leader’s Guide together for us! What a valuable resource this will be for ALL our GMG leaders! Thank you to each of you for the time and effort you put into this project!!! We are so very thankful to each of you!

In this guide, we hope to address some of the most common questions you might have as a leader:

  1. Why I need to know the Good Morning Girls Statement of Faith…
  2. What exactly are my responsibilities, and what resources are available to me as a leader?
  3. How do I go about setting up a Good Morning Girls group?
  4. What important information should I communicate to my group as we get started?
  5. What are some tips for helping my GMG group succeed?
  6. How can I consistently engage my group members and encourage participation?
  7. Keeping a healthy perspective (don’t get discouraged!).

Each session we have more women signing up than there are GMG leaders….would you please prayerfully consider being a GMG Leader? Ideally we like to keep the group sizes to about 5-10 women but because of the vast demand we have some groups that have had hundreds of women in one group! Though we are soo thankful for each of those women who want to participate and for the leaders who willingly includes them, we also want to make sure each woman experiences a “personal touch” and fills apart of their group.

We’d LOVE for YOU to join us as a GMG Leader!

Our heart here at Good Morning Girls is to reach women all over the world with the good news of Jesus Christ……one life at a time!

With that passion in mind, I’d also like to announce today that we will have our summer book club selection translated into 3 different languages!!!

This summer we will have WomenLivingWell’s ebook: Proverbs 31: One Virtue At A Time translated into:
Croatian
German
AND Spanish!

Stay tuned for those downloadable ebooks! If you have any friends who speak those languages, be sure to let them know!

Be a Mom Who Rocks The World!

 

It’s 6:30 in the morning, I’m trying to get my quiet time in BEFORE my girls wake up and I hear, “Mommy, Paige just woke me up!!!” Hello day…….here we gooooooooo……..

The quiet serenity of spending time in God’s Word, conversing with the King of Kings is now replaced with 3 hungry little girls all wanting to be fed, 2 of them telling me about their dreams from the night before…at the same time and each wanting their mommy’s 100% attention! Life as a mom can be crazy!!!! But you know what? I wouldn’t want it any other way!

Motherhood can be hard. It can be exhausting. Some days it takes everything that I have to give….and then some! But the opportunity to raise 3 precious little girls for my Lord’s glory is priceless, even on those days when I feel I have accomplished nothing. But there is such meaning in the mundane.

Do you have a desire to make a difference in our world?

Join me today at MomHeart.Org where I discuss the difference WE can make as MOMS!

 

Love God Greatly!

 

 

 

 

Summer Session Sign-Ups Start TODAY!

I’m excited to announce our GMG summer session sign-ups start TODAY!

What is Good Morning Girls? (GMG)
If you have never heard of Good Morning Girls before here’s what we are… “Good Morning Girls” is a title for a group of women who use email, Facebook, Twitter, Skype or text messaging to keep each other accountable for their quiet times. For 3+ years, I have been a part of a group of girls who email each other each daily after we have our quiet time. We say “Good Morning” and then share what we read in our quiet time. Some of us have our quiet time first thing in the morning, while others squeeze it in during children’s naps or at bedtime. The time of day doesn’t matter…..our focus is just being in God’s Word daily!

Here is a video about Good Morning Girls and a few testimonials from my own personal GMG friends!

For those of you viewing this in your email, click here.

Who can join?
Young, old, single, married – any woman who wants to pursue walking with Jesus. (This is our belief statement- scroll to bottom of page).

Why?
Our main goal is to be accountable to each other and to help each other maintain the discipline of reading God’s word daily.

What’s the commitment?
Joining a Good Morning Girls group requires commitment. Now that Angela and I have had time to watch these groups form and grow, we are aware that some start strong but then fizzle out. As a result the entire group can get discouraged. So it is very important that if you join a group you remain committed to the end. Even if you can only check in once or twice a week – please do not quit completely. The other girls WANT to hear from you!

  • This is a 3 month commitment.
  • The summer session runs from May 14th – August 17th.

What To Study?
The Summer Book Club is optional. We will be providing SOAP Bible readings, videos and challenges to go along with Courtney’s Proverbs 31 ebook BUT this is optional. To receive Courtney’s FREE Proverbs 31 ebook make sure to subscribe to her blog at WomenLivingWell.Org

You can choose as a group to read through a certain book of the Bible together, to join a Bible study together such as a Beth Moore study or each do your own thing.

 

Let the sign-ups BEGIN!

 

Joining GMG is as simple as 1-2-3!

1- Find a group of friends to form an online accountability group.

  • Women in your Sunday school class or church
  • Friends from your women’s bible study
  • Past college roommates,
  • Relatives,
  • Neighbors,
  • Co-workers,
  • Other moms that you do life with…
  • Still not sure who to invite? Then visit our online message board and find a group there to join! GMG groups are forming based on location, age of children, pastor wives, homeschool moms, public school moms, working moms, stay-at-home moms, special needs moms…etc. If you don’t see a group that interests you then form your own online!

2- Once you know who is in your group, decide how you want to daily communicate to each other.

  • Facebook -setup a secret group. (Not sure how? Here are the steps)
  • Twitter- our hastag is #GoodMorningGirls
  • Email
  • Text messaging
  • Skype

3- Sign-Up HERE!

My response to Ephesians … Jesus does it all

What a privilege it has been to be a part of this Ephesians study.  The study itself has been so good for me and I have been very encouraged to see what God has been teaching all of you. I pray that your thirst for his word continues to grow.

I love how very organized Paul is in his writings. In Ephesians Paul spends the first half of the letter teaching us about some heavy doctrines and in the second half he tells us very practically how those doctrines should affect our everyday lives. (He does the same thing in the book of Romans.) Here are a few things that I am taking away from our Ephesians study.

Jesus Chooses (Eph. 1; 2:8-9)

There are moments, usually right after I have barked at the kids, or disciplined in the heat of the moment or when I have been in a generally unpleasant mood that I look at myself and think, “Why in the world did God ever chose me?” I can tell you, it certainly wasn’t because I have it all together or because I am so awesome. No, he chooses the unlovely (me), the annoying (me), the grumpy (me), the sinner (me) because of his immeasurable grace and mercy. This humbles me and gives me joy.

Jesus Redeems (Eph. 1)

Sometimes I feel like I suffer from spiritual amnesia because I am constantly forgetting how much Christ has done for me. Christ has paid a very heavy price for my release from the slavery of sin and instead of crawling back into that dark mess I need to live like one who is free. Free to run away from sin and free to love and obey God.

Jesus Forgives (Eph. 4:32 )

I am a forgiven sinner, but it is not just my past sins that Jesus has blotted out, he also willingly suffered for the sins that I have not yet committed. That is deep love and I need to imitate Jesus by making sure I forgive those who wrong me. When I feel pride creeping in all I need to do is look to the cross and I am humbled.

Jesus has all power (Eph. 1:19-20)

One thing I have learned is that life is unpredictable. It doesn’t matter how organized I try to be are or how many lists I make,  things will not always go according to my plan. I am not in control. Jesus is. He has all the power, not only to save me and change me, but also to give me all the strength I need to make it through this topsy turvy life.

I am in “Christ” (Eph 2:18-22 )

I am in Christ and so are you! We have a lot in common. We struggle with the same sins and we have similar victories. We also have the same goals. What an encouragement this is to me knowing that I have sisters all over the world who are praying, studying and striving to be more like Jesus.  We are all soldiers in the army of God, serving Christ our King and fighting sin and Satan. I love this, because it means I am not alone and neither are you.

As summer nears and the school year comes to an end it is easy to get thrown off by a new schedule.  I am going to pray and work hard to keep Jesus as my focus. I hope you will too and God willing I will see you here again for the next Good Morning Girls Bible study.

Looking to Jesus,
