Welcome to the 10th Annual Making Your Home a Haven Bible Study!  10 years ago, we began this series and never could I have imagined how much it would resonate with so many women around the world!

Our souls desperately need a deeper connection with God.

So many times we try to mask our struggles, pain, confusion or emptiness by keeping busy and distracted, eating food, going on vacations, seeking success or elevating certain relationships. While many of these are blessings from God, they are not good substitutes FOR God.

This Bible Study is going to help you slow down.

It is going to force you to pause every day and enter into the presence of our Almighty God through the 4 Spiritual Disciplines of gratitude, meditation, prayer and fasting.

God’s pace is much slower than this world’s pace.

We must slow down to catch up with God.

We must create calm moments in our day because it’s in the unhurried moments, that we can clearly see and hear the voice of God.

4 Ways to Live Despite the Sting of Death

Death is agony and it awaits everyone, but there are 4 ways we can live this life with purpose and joy despite the sting of death. #Biblestudy #1Corinthians #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

A few summers ago, I was at a water park with my children and I sat down on a bench to watch them play.  As soon as I sat down – I was stung by a bee.  I jumped up in pain, and immediately tried to look at the spot where I was stung…only I couldn’t because it was on my hind end!  Once my daughter got out of the water, she confirmed I had been stung but since the stinger was in an unfortunate spot, we had to go to the first aid station to get it out. As we walked there, we laughed hysterically and while it was embarrassing to have the nurse remove the stinger, – I was very grateful for relief from the pain.

Have you been there?

Have you been stung by the pain of terrible news from a doctor or something else that you never saw coming?  Everyone faces sorrow in life but none of us want it or plan for it and the worst stinger of all is the death of a loved one.

100% of us are going to die.

That stings —

but the entire chapter of 1 Corinthians 15 gives us hope!  It is all about...

Marriage, Divorce and Singleness

The Bible addresses all of these: the blessing of marriage, the pain of divorce, and the calling to singleness - and here is what Paul says to each.

All of us fall into one of two categories – we are either married or single.  Some are happily married and some are happily single but others feel trapped in their marriage or singleness.  Sometimes though, the grass is not greener.

On today’s video, we are going to take a closer look at 1 Corinthians chapter 7. Paul has a message for both married and singles and he also touches on divorce.  So at the end of today’s video,  I will also share some of my story from going through an unwanted divorce.

A Word of Encouragement for Those Going Through a Divorce:

I never thought I’d be in this place.  I have been single now for almost 4 years.  In some ways – they have been the longest four years of my life and in other ways they have literally flown by.  One thing is for sure – the first two years, were the darkest years of my life and so I want to encourage those who...
