Enrollment starts….NOW!

Enrollment starts now- Womens Online Bible Studies- Good Morning Girls

Are you excited to start our new study, Intentionally Focused? I am! I hope this post will help answer some questions you may have regarding enrollment and joining a group.

——————————————————————————-

We ask all our members and leaders to …
Enroll in the study (taking attendance)
• Subscribe to the Good Morning Girls Blog (if you are a current subscriber and receiving emails, you are all set)

How to enroll in our current study, ‘Intentionally Focused’
The enrollment form for our current study will be available from January 6th to 17th. To enroll, hover your mouse over the tab ‘Enroll’ on the menu bar above, then click ‘Enroll Here’. You will arrive at a page and toward the bottom of the page is a button – {click here to enroll}. The Enrollment Form will be available ‘only’ during our enrollment period. If you are participating in a past study, no enrollment is required.

Explanation about Enrollment
The enrollment form is our way of taking attendance for this session; it’s like signing up for Bible study at your church. We do not send out confirmation emails but upon completion of the enrollment form you will receive a ‘Thank you’ confirmation page or pop-up depending on your browser. Please note that responses are not always recorded if you fill out the form via your phone – this is out of our control!

How to join a group
Our available groups will be listed on our blog only during the enrollment period. If you do not have a group to join, but still wish to join a private group, hover your mouse over the tab ‘Groups’ on the menu bar above, then click ‘Join a Group’. You will arrive at a page with more information about how we list our groups. To join an existing group, select the type of group you want to join: Facebook, Email, International or other groups. We will add available groups throughout our enrollment period, so keep checking back.

Private Facebook Groups – We have arranged groups using Time Zones – ‘Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific’. NOTE: if you live in Eastern Time Zone but wish to join a group in Mountain Time Zone – feel free – you are not limited to your own time zone. Once you select Facebook groups, scroll through the list of leaders and choose a group. Then click on the group link provided and request to join their group! If the link is broken the group is full and the leader has disabled access. We remove the links as fast as possible, so please be patient and continue to look through the list to find another group to join.

Our Email groups and International groups are across all time zones mainly because they have a slightly different format.

If a group is leading a past study, it will be noted. We can’t guarantee that you’ll find the “perfect” group, but you’ll be surprised at how God places you in the group that fits your needs!

Subscribing to the Blog (Free materials)
If you are not already subscribed, this only needs to be done once.

1. Subscribe at goodmorninggirls.org. Enter your email address (it will be in caps, email addresses are not case sensitive).

2. You will receive a popup message from Feedburner that states, “your email address will receive a verification message once you submit this form.” You will be asked to ‘enter the text’ listed – to prevent spam.

3. Confirmation Email – check your email inbox, spam folder or promotions tab (Gmail) for a verification message from “FeedBurner Email Subscriptions.” Click the link contained in that message to activate your subscription.

For the past 2 summers I have opened my home and held a summer Bible study with my GMG group and Sunday school class. There’s something special that happens when you open your home to friends, life slows down just a little as you finally have time to share what’s on your heart. There’s a bonding and closeness that develops when a group of women pray together, read God’s Word together and let down their guards together.

A sisterhood emerges…

In the past we’ve normally met on Wednesday mornings for about an hour and a half. While the moms met for the Bible study, their kids participated in a VBS in my backyard run by the four high school girls I disciple on Tuesday nights during the school year. It’s really been a win-win for everyone! My DG girls LOVE teaching our kids and planning the activities. Our children LOVE playing with the DG girls, hearing the Bible stories and doing the fun crafts that go with each week’s Bible lesson. The moms of course love it because we can actually meet and share what we’ve been learning through our study.

This summer I’m going to change it up a little, not because I haven’t enjoyed how the past 2 summers have went…I’ve LOVED it, but the change has more to do with my DG girls growing up and needing to get summer jobs now…

So this summer we are meeting every other Wednesday at a local park. If you live in my small town you might see us lugging kids, lunches and Bibles to picnic tables. We aren’t crazy….just women who desire to be in community….that’s what we’re made for…….each other. You’ll see us “break bread” together, pray together, kiss a few boo boos and support one another as we strive to live lives that reflect Jesus.

We come together because we know we are the Body of Christ….we were made to do this…..we are stronger as one.

Let me encourage you this summer to reach out and invite women who are in your life to do this study with you. Invite them into your home or schedule time with them at local parks or coffee shops. The location isn’t want matters…what matters is the souls you are cultivating and encouraging.

This summer go on a mission trip……without leaving your town. Invite a few new friends to join your GMG summer book club.

Sometimes we forget there are souls who need Jesus across the street and across the world.

Let’s make a difference in our country….one home at a time.

 

Today I’ve provided the direct links for enrolling into our online Bible study, finding a group, as well as the direct link for women who are leading GMG groups.

To Subscribe or Sign-Up…that is the question!

I’ve heard there is some confusion as to the difference between subscribing to the blog to receive the M-W-F blog posts and signing up for the Colossians Bible Study. Let me take a few minutes to explain and show you the difference. :)

Subscribing to the Good Morning Girls blog (GMG)

Step 1: Click on the word “Subscribe” located in the navigation bar at the top of the blog.

Step 2: Select how you would like to receive the Good Morning Girls blog posts. Your options are: email, web-based readers or other readers.  In the example picture I’m selecting how to receive the blog posts as emails.

Step 3: Provide the email address where you’d like the Good Morning Girls blog posts to be sent and then retype the text that you see in blue. Press the “Complete Subscription Request” button.

Step 4: An email will then be sent to your account requesting you to activate your subscription. Once you respond to the verification message you will start to receive the Good Morning Girls blog post in your inbox.

How to sign-up for the Colossians Bible Study

Step 1: Fill out the sign-up form located here: http://www.goodmorninggirls.org/gmg-sign-up-form/
Your screen will look like this:

Step 2: At the end of the form press the “Submit” button and you will be registered for the fall Colossians Bible Study!!!!

What’s the difference between subscribing and signing-up?

Subscribing: You will get our M-W-F blog posts each week that go along with our study. These posts provide our personal commentary on what we are studying that week plus resources to help you dig into God’s Word a little deeper. Plus all our bible study documents are now located at the bottom of every email so if you lose one, you can easily find it and download it again.

Signing-Up: Signing up as an individual or as a GMG Leader allows us to know how many women are participating in our fall Colossians study as well as lets us know the population of women we are talking to….this information helps us know who our audience is so we can better serve you. :) It’s also nice to know where all the different GMG groups are located within the United States as well as abroad! God is spreading His Word to the ends of the earth and it’s exciting to be apart of His mighty work!

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!

____________________________________________________________________________________________

This summer we will be studying the life of the Proverbs 31 woman and using Women Living Well’s FREE ebook Proverbs 31: One Virtue At A Time as our summer book club choice!

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
