Women's Bible Study ....

What suggestions do you have
for Women's Bible Studies?


What have you done in the past that really impacted
your Christian walk and why?

Do you favor a workbook with once a day bible study
or glean your own from a book that
has no questions?
Ex: JC Ryle - Holiness verses Elizabeth George's
"A Woman's Walk With God" book and study guide.

Do you ever do a video style bible study with the teacher
and then you have discussions afterwards?

Do you create your own weekly questions from
Scripture as you do a topical, verse by verse
or Book study?

Do you do a once a week or once a monthly study?

Do you do one-on-one or a group of women?

Do you have the study at Church or in a home?

What has not worked for you?

  1. I'm reading a women's bible study on the book of James right now. It is written by Susan Heck and it is in-depth, convicting, and no frills. There's no fill in the blank stuff. It's all expository, verse by verse, and she asks some tough questions. She also emphasizes scripture memory. It's called Tested Faith and I do not hesitate to recommend it!! I'm doing it on my own, but there's no reason it couldn't be used in a group setting.

    Studying and memorizing the Shorter Catechism.

    No study guide for me! I detest them. Well, that's strong, but I really think they have a way of limiting conversation and causing people to prepare the questions instead of the lessons.

    Have done it once. It was OK.

    Do you create your own weekly questions from

    For own study? No. But I take notes and observations.

    Do you do a once a week or once a monthly study? Group study? I do two studies. One is once a week, the other is every other week.

    Do you do one-on-one or a group of women? I've done both, but I prefer a minimum of three to lead a study.

    Do you have the study at Church or in a home?

    I've done both and believe it or not, I prefer doing it at a more neutral place like church. Homes are wonderful and cozy, but I find that conversations drift more in private homes and it's harder to get to the meat of the study sometimes.

    What has not worked for you? Having small children "playing in the basement." Doesn't work.

    I think I'll post this on my blog, too. I haven't written this much in quite a while! : D
