Oh, you poor sweet thing. That's exactly how I felt when I joined a Bible study at our new church last fall. Then my kids kept getting sick, so I bought Beth's CDs and did it on my own. Can't decide whether to attempt it again this time--it starts tomorrow! Praying it's life-changing for you!


I've had the same exact feelings you experienced with starting your new Bible study. I am still praying for authentic friends to meet and it's hard not to take it personally when it doesn't happen. Hope your group helps build some new friendships. Your Living Simply book was under my Christmas tree and I look forward to the chance to read some more! Also, I love the new paint color of your house! We have the same color brick on part of our home too and we often talk about repainting again. Our paint color is light gray with dark gray shutters. I have to ask, do you happen to know the name of the paint color you used?


You were very courageous today to attend such a large bible study and not knowing a soul. I am so shy when it comes to things like that. I probably would have chickened out.

I just had a phone conversation with my Mum today about how I need to be more patient with my kids and that there needs to be more peace in my home! Perhaps I will see if I can get a copy of Beth Moore's bible study. Is it something that can be done on my own?
