I have been anxiously a-waiting the day I could share this study with you all! Joanna Weaver has just released a new DVD Bible study for her book, Lazarus Awakening. I was able to be a part of the Lazarus Awakening Launch Team and am excited to share the details with you!

Is your head swimming just thinking about the first day of Bible study?

Name tags – you either love them or you hate them!

In the fall of 2013 God began to pepper me with verses about “loving your neighbor”. It was in my BSF Bible study. It popped up in a Christian fiction book I was reading. It seemed as if everywhere I turned, God was telling me to “love my neighbor”, but I didn’t know why.
Today’s guest post is from a friend of mine, Cheryle. God has used her to birth an amazing and powerful ministry – healed. She has a very special message for all women’s ministry leaders.
Group leaders have great opportunities to love and encourage their women.
