Helping and Studying

Missy here. And it's Thursday! Did you know that? Apparently, I didn't. :) I totally forgot about posting! So I'm jumping in late. I thought I'd share about my day.

This morning, I got to take part in helping assemble food boxes for the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia's mobile food pantry. This service has been in our community for a while, but this was my first time to volunteer. We put together boxes of staples and some fresh produce, assembly line style, for almost 600 families. The line seemed to stretch on forever--so many families in need. If you're in NE Georgia and interested in finding out more, check out their website. This organization distributed 7.5 million pounds of food in 2009!

After the food pantry, I went to one of my women's Bible studies. Today was the beginning of a new session. We're going to be doing Beth Moore's updated Breaking Free study. I'm really looking forward to it! I'd love to hear whether or not you've done this study. If not, what's been your favorite book or method to study the Bible?


  1. Time flies sometimes; or should I say all the time. :) And isn't it nice how you get so much in return for giving.

  2. Yes, all of the time, Eva Maria! :)

    Can you believe it's almost September??!!

  3. No I am in complete denial about that! I am sure that it is still May!

  4. Glad you were able to volunteer, Missy!

    the book that helped me understand the Bible was The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus. It is written in an easy to understand and follow format. It takes you from Genesis to Revelations and explains Christ's presense and God's reasons through explaining scripture. An eye opener for sure!

  5. Missy,

    There are a lot of families in need, aren't there? Glad there are organizations out there that can help.
    And Breaking Free is one of the Bethy studies I haven't done. Keep us posted on how it's going. I know it's a good one. I think it's one of her first ones she wrote.

  6. I love Kay Arthur's Precept Bible studies. It fits my learning style/personality perfectly! There's nothing like it for depth and for digging into a chapter yourself.

  7. Hi Missy:

    My wife has taken Beth Moore Bible studies at her church and really liked them.

    I like to take every Teaching Company course on the Bible as it comes out because the professors are also experts in the languages of the Bible. I highly recommend their course on Genesis. It is one of the best college courses I’ve ever taken.


  8. I haven't had a chance to do that study. Sounds like I'd love it.

  9. Missy, we did that study last year. It was WONDERFUL. It helped realize some strongholds in my life,things that I needed to let go of. Eye-opening, occasionally painful, but well worth the effort.
