The Need for Community {Plus Colossians Documents now ready to download!}

 

The popularity of Facebook shows our desperate desire for community. As women we are created with the longing to connect, to connect with our Lord and to connect with those around us. We are made for relationships.

The problem occurs with the busyness of our everyday lives. The demands of raising our precious children, taking care of our homes, and being a helpmate to our husbands. As we strive to serve and meet the needs of others, we can find ourselves depleted and lonely. If we’re not careful, we begin to neglect our time with other women and especially our time with God…..the very relationship we so desperately need as moms.

God has designed us for relationships, for community……not as lone rangers out in the wilderness without any support or encouragement.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!

What is GMG?

“Good Morning Girls” are a group of Christian women who use email, Facebook, Twitter or text messaging to keep each other accountable for their quiet times. It’s a tech accountability group.

Monday-Friday you email, FB, tweet or text your friends and say “Good Morning” and share with your group what you read and learned through your time in God’s Word. Proverbs 27:17 says “As iron sharpens iron so one man sharpens another.” You share with your group how God spoke to your heart that day.

We have 3 3 months sessions a year and provide an online bible study to guide you in your quiet times. We also provide blog posts M-W-F all pertaining to what we are studying to help you dig deeper into God’s Word. On Monday’s we provide a list of additional resources that you can use during the week to help you dig deeper into God’s Word. Good Morning Girls can be as basic or in depth as YOU need. We normally only read 2-3 verses a day, but by the end of the session you will have read and written out an entire book of the bible! Our fall session starts September 17th.

What is the purpose of GMG?

The purpose of GoodMorningGirls is to encourage women to get into God’s Word. God is passionate about His Word reaching “To the ends of the earth” and he’s passionate about His daughters getting to know Him better and deepening THEIR relationship with him…..no longer feeling alone.

“I have always said that a woman alone in her own home with her own limited self, sinful children and a house that is subject to falling apart, is a target for Satan. Joining hands with other women, having a prayer partner, starting a small group, is a defense against vulnerability.”- Sally Clarkson

GoodMoringGirls is about grabbing your friends or making new friends and coming together in God’s Word. GMG is about developing a closer walk with our Lord so He can change us from the inside out and help us be the best mom, wife, sister, daughter and friend that we can be.

What are others saying about Good Morning Girls?

GMG has been a great tool in the last year not only to help keep me accountable in reading and applying God’s Word but also to get to know some of the ladies from my church in a deeper and more meaningful way.- Jenna

GMG has been great for me. I have met some amazing women and even though we are an online group I feel like I’ve really gotten to know them and learn so much from them. I have noticed a difference in my days when I start with GMG. It has been tough to always start my day with God but with GMG it has been easier to commit to.- Emily

GMG has given me the opportunity to grow while being unable to attend bible study at my church. It has encouraged me with all the comments from other moms.- Elizabeth

________________________________________________________________

Good morning Girls has been a God sent to me. Having children and not being able to leave the house much in the past it had been a very sad and lonely and depressing time for me. Good morning Girls has given me the chance to pull together and this time around help host for the first time online fellowship. It has given me adult communication and structure with Gods words. It has helped me run/ teach/ guide my home, family and relationship with my husbands in ways I never expected. My whole life has changed to the good and I am finally beginning to smile once more and not feel so isolated to the world that is so different in opinions than mine.- Kimberly

  1. I am already an email subscriber, and I can’t figure out how to download the bookmark & study guide. Help?

  2. Jessica Ball says:

    I cant find where you download the bookmark and study guide either. I am already an email subscriber also!

  3. Dorie Anderson says:

    I too don’t understand how to download the study. I am already a subscriber. It is comforting to know others are having trouble as well.

  4. I see the documents in my Google Reader. Thank you so much for leading the way for so many women to be in the Scriptures!
    :)

  5. For those of you who don’t know how to download the documents. First, check your email. All the downloads are at the bottom. They look like this: {GMG} Colossians SOAP bookmark. Second, click on the document you want to download. It will come up as a pdf file. Then, save it to your computer. There are two ways to do this- click the icon that looks like a disk or click File and Save As (or Save Page As). Then click Save so it will go in your documents and you can pull it up again to print it or you can just print it right after you click on the link to download it. Hope this helps!

  6. Idea/Suggestion: I think it would be great if the study guide pdf could be “editable”. Meaning all the verses/questions etc. that GMG writes cannot be changed, but that we could have space to go in and type our responses directly into the file and be able to edit the fonts for our responses to make it fit. Then we can save it on our PC’s or print it all out to have on hand for reference later. (But for those of us tight on space, we could leave it on the computer and come back to it!) Just an idea. No big deal either way! :o)

  7. Good morning!! I signed up for the bible study – but have not heard back yet about a group that I will be placed in. Did I mis-understand the process? Perhaps we do this individually and then everyone blogs as a group? Just want to make sure I’m not missing something. This is my first time and I’m very excited to meet some new friends! Thank you for all you do to keep me inspired each day!

  8. If you are subscribed and have not received an email, is there another place to get the study or do I have to re-subscribe again?

  9. melissa mcconnell says:

    I did sign up for the emails and still have not yet received this particular email. Would GMG be able to resend me this email? Thanks so much, Melissa

  10. Hi Thank you so much for all you do! I have a fb group called Its Still the Cross. I signed up for the Colossians study! Do I add my group and each member also?

    I tried to download the SOAP, reading plan, and leader guide but the screen is blank… any suggestions?

  14. I can’t find the download?!? I haven’t received an email & I signed up?!? What do I do ????

  15. I’m so excited to get started! The links showed up in the feedburner just fine. I didn’t get the email — but I got and I am printing it off for our group! Thank you so much for all your hard work and for sharing this wonderful ministry with us. ~Martha

  16. Shana Speck says:

    Hello, I have subscribed via email and see all of the emails in my Yahoo reader but, when I scroll over the Soap and Study Guide links they are not available to open. Can you help me with this. I have never received an email, but I do get the updates in MyYahoo!. Thank you in advance.

  17. I’m not getting any emails either. If I try to register again, I go to the feedburner page and can see the downloads there (and they worked for me) but I’m not getting any emails from GMG. As a few people have mentioned this, there does seem to be a problem. Many thanks for your work on this.

  18. Tina- There have been no blog posts to be emailed since Aug 27. When there is a blog post there will be an email. Just wait!

  19. Please help. I am subscribed to GMG and every email I have received, I have treid to download the Colossians study and it sends me to a blank page. I tried again this morning for the 5th time with the same result. Can someone email me to tell me what I’m doing wrong?

  20. I’m having the same problem as Michelle Allison. I click on the bottom of the email/blog and it sends me to a blank page.

  21. Hi Tina!!! I’m so sorry you’re having so much trouble. Please email me at LoveGodGreatly@gmail.com and I’ll email you those documents. :)

  22. I am goingn to form a group on Facebook. We have 3 and may add a few more to it. I am wandering do I need to form the group on facebook first or sign up first? AND Does each member of the group need to sign up on your site or does just being a member of my facebook group count?
    Thank you

  23. Hi Angela,

    I tried everything last night.. but still no luck. :( Would it be alright if I email you like Tina to get the documents?
