What is Good Morning Girls? (GMG)
If you have never heard of Good Morning Girls before here’s a little explanation. “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!

Who can join?
Single women, married women, women with kids, women without kids, high school or college girls….. basically ANY woman who wants to pursue walking with Jesus. (This is our belief statement- scroll to bottom of page).
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 I have had time to watch these groups form and grow, I am 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 fall session runs from September 17th-December 21st. (8 week study in Colossians, two week break for Thanksgiving, 4 week Advent study)
What To Study?
The fall SOAP Bible reading plan of Colossians is optional.
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.

Still not sure if you should join Good Morning Girls this fall? Here are a few quotes from women who participated in this past summer’s Proverbs 31 study!
I think this study has brought a whole new level of mindfulness to my day. It has forced me to look at myself and evaluate my responsibility in strengthening relationships. It’s also helped me define goals for myself with the confidence that these are Biblical goals. It’s been a long time since I’ve studied the Bible with any consistency and I’m so grateful that I chose this one. Very positive!- Ginny
I have enjoyed this study on the Proverbs 31 women, it is amazing. I have found the study to be reinforcing the way I feel about what a women of God should be. It is at times hard to swallow but then the Lord steps in and tells me that I am all ready doing some of these things, but need to continue to work on many of the others . The Lord has spoken to me through the verses and I will pray that he will continue to do so. My desire is to be more like her each day and that my husband and children will rise up and call me blessed, at the end of my time.- Wendy
God has definitely used this study to change me this summer. It gave me a new pep in my step and confidence in who I am as a wife and mother. This world tells us it should be all about “me me me” all the time, and when we devote ourselves to our family that we pretty much must have a screw loose! I struggle with my personal goals conflicting with my job as an at home wife/mom. Proverb 31 made me see that I can have it all…but only through His strength….not on my own, could I do this!- Sheila
I LOVED this study so much that I will be using it in January as part of our Women’s Bible Study. I also LOVED the s.o.a.p. method. I had never seen it before. I’m teaching this fall on 10 women from the Bible and put the lessons together using this method. I am so excited to see what God has done and will continue to do.
Thank you so much for this study. It’s made a difference in my life, which extends to my husband, children, grandchildren.- Cheryl
Well, I must admit I had a shaky start with this study, but it’s made a difference and I through enjoy and am glad that I persevered through it! I will most definitely sign up for the next one! I had so much fun learning and gaining new insights to proverbs 31!- Amy
Thank you so much for this awesome study!! Before I used to read Proverbs 31 and cry out of despair that I could never be and just wasn’t like her. A few weeks after my crying episode I stumbled upon this study on FB and hurried to catch up since u were on the 3rd week. I am now so encouraged to be all the wife and mommy I can be! I now see that her work was only through Christ’s strength and that she was intentional and that her family and she is blessed through her efforts. – Janee
I love the encouragement that’s been given, and it helps me to encourage other women around me to be this woman they desire to be for God and forget what the world is telling them about being a strong independent woman. There is a way to be strong and it’s in God and in love and dedication to the purpose he has for us to tend and nurture. I think sometimes us moms forget we may sacrifice our wants, but we get to watch our children do so much more with God and our blessings are multiplied through them. Thanks again!- Amanda
As you can see, being in God’s Word on a daily bases DOES make a difference in your life! You can sign-up individually or in a group……either way, we’d love to have you join us this fall!
