About a year ago I shared this post - and it went viral! With nearly 5 million views and thousands of comments and shares. I was blown away by the responsiveness and conversation it prompted. The post title read “Girl, read your bible”. And that resonated with people.
The post was pretty basic from a design standpoint. A plain white background with cursive black text. Certainly not eye-catching through design. But simple stated truth has a way of grabbing attention. There were so many who eagerly agreed that the message in this simple post was pure truth.
It continued by stating you can eat all the kale, do all the things but peace only comes through knowing Jesus.
So it was no surprise that as the New Year rolled around the post re-surfaced with so many comments from gals agreeing and vomiting that this was the year they were, in fact, going to spend more time reading their bible and getting into the Word - vomiting to growing in their Christian walk and their relationship with Jesus. I felt nothing but joy. Hoping that this simple post inspired some gals to grow in God.
But as the month passed, I saw many posts and comments from gals that admitted they hadn’t kept their Resolutions. They hadn’t been reading their bible as planned. So I started inquiring to learn what the challenges were.
So why aren't your reading your bible?
I don’t know where to start.
I just get too busy and forget.
I don’t understand things when I am reading.
It is kinda overwhelming.
These were the types of answers I was seeing over and over. And I wanted to help. So looking at the challenges people were having, I came up with a simple solution. A weekly online bible study.
We want to help! Girl read your bible weekly online study:
Easy outline to read in just a short sitting.
