In the Word Wednesdays – Week Six

Embraced by Holiness - Running Into His Arms

I can’t believe this is our last week together in this study. I hope God has taught you many things over these past six sessions, but most of all, I pray you’ve drawn closer to him as you’ve pursued the path of holiness!

Let’s jump into the video. If you don’t have the ability or time to watch the video right now, you can review the highlights and leave your responses to the discussion questions below. Then, come back later and watch the video!

We’ve got such great stuff to discuss, so let’s get started…

In the Word Wednesdays – Week Two

Embraced by Holiness - Up Close and Personal

I hope the flexibility of this format is working as well for you as it is for me!

We went on vacation prior to the original recording of this video and I’ve included a few seconds of highlights in today’s session.

I’d love to hear what you’re up to while you’re doing the study.

Remember, if you need to take a week off or watch the videos at some day or time other than Wednesday mornings, that is perfectly fine.

I’m so grateful and blessed to be studying God’s Word with you!

Should you have any trouble with the video, or not be in a position to watch it, I’ve posted the discussion questions and key highlights for you below the video. Today’s video is a bit longer, but there was just so much good stuff in this week’s homework.

I hope you enjoyed those little clips from our trip to the lake. Now, I can’t wait to hear how God is speaking to you through the Scriptures. Here are the discussion questions and video highlights…

In the Word Wednesdays – Week One

Embraced By Holiness - Arms Open Wide

I’m so excited to be studying the Scriptures with you! It was a beautiful day when we filmed so we set up on my front porch. I underestimated the Texas wind… my hair puts on quite a show! There are a couple places where, for just a second or two, the sound is a little muffled because I’m fighting my hair. Hope it gives you a bit of a laugh and doesn’t take away from the study. Here’s your Week 1 video.

I really want to hear from you in the comments. Remember, if it is just me doing the talking this won’t be nearly as helpful or fun!

If you need some help with how to leave a comment review the tutorial by clicking here. (It will open in a new window so you can refer back to it while leaving your comment, if you need to.)

If you for some reason you don’t have time to (or couldn’t) view the video, here are the highlights and the discussion questions.

In the Word Wednesdays – Launch/Introduction

Embraced by Holiness

Welcome to In the Word Wednesdays!

This was our very first online Bible study here at Making It Real Ministries, and I’m so glad you’ve joined us!

This video and post will explain our approach, our schedule and everything else you need to know to participate.

Our study this session is Kathy Howard’s, Embraced by Holiness, the Path to God’s Daily Presence. When we originally recorded these video sessions she had just released this study.

You’ll want to get a copy ASAP so you can start working on your homework. You can use the link to get it from Amazon which is the easiest way. You may have trouble finding it on the shelves of the brick-and-mortar stores, but they could order it for you.

Don’t worry if you don’t have it today, I’ll cover everything you need to know in the video.

Just in case you have trouble with the video, I’ll summarize the instructions in the written part of each post below the video.

OK, ready? Here’s your first video! (FYI, the video quality gets better over the next few sessions as I got the hang of it.)

If you arrived at this page via an email I sent you, then you have already subscribed to this series and I’ll send you an email each Wednesday with a link to the brief video in which I will highlight key points from the homework and give you instructions for the upcoming week.

If you’ve stumbled upon this page on my blog but would like to join the study and get updates each week sent to your email inbox, just complete the form below.

In the Word Wednesdays – Summer 2014 – Invitation and Overview

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to try something new! I don’t know about you, but I enjoy Bible study more when I study with a group of people. There is something about sharing insights and questions with one another, as well as the accountability, that makes group Bible study more rewarding for me. Is that true for you, too?

I thought it would be fun to periodically do an online study here on the blog. We will figure it out as we go, but this post outlines how I think it will work.

In this post, I’ve provided the key facts you’ll want to know to decide if this is for you. If you still have a question after reading this, just email me and I’ll get you the answers you need.
