Welcome to Grace to Joy

Sweet Summer Time! School is out, children are under foot, and moms question, how do I keep these kids busy during the summer? May I suggest that its a prime time to incorporate a bible study? Not just for yourself, but for them too. As they see your example of spending time with God in His word they will learn the importance of it for themselves. There are so many studies out there for children and teens, or adapt what you are learning for an organized discussion time. As a parent there is no higher calling than to teach them of God and His love for them.  The memories you will make while learning about God will have lasting impact as His word never returns void. So, open His word this summer with your children.  

If you don't have a child at home then be sure to find a study for yourself that delves deep into the scriptures. We can become pacified with just a small soundbite from the Word, but if we are going to grow (and He calls us to do just that) then we need to be digging in deep.  He's worth it, don't you think?

My prayer is that we won't take the summer off from being in His word. He doesn't ever take time away from being available to us. His word is refreshing to the soul and food for our spirit. Dig in! 

God bless, and have a wonderful summer! 

Philippians Bible Study

This 290 pg. workbook provides an in-depth Bible study of the book of Philippians.  Consisting of personal study time, five days a week for ten weeks, the workbook makes it possible to work at your own pace, or grab a girlfriend or two to work through it together.  Perhaps your church's ladies ministry would even choose to use this study, and meet weekly for discussion time. 

In the letter to the Philippian believers we find the Apostle Paul saying, "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say rejoice!"  This study will show how it's possible to have joy even when we don't understand the what, when, why, or how of a situation (and isn't life always full of situations?)  See how the Apostle Paul unlocks the secret of living in contentment and joy.  It's our prayer that it won't be long before you, too, are Finding His Joy.  

Workbook study is available through Amazon. $17.99     

Kindle Edition  Amazon Kindle $10.99

Or, add the Kindle addition for only $2.99 when you purchase the  workbook from Amazon.


One of the greatest blessings we've been given is God's word, but like  many things that are "good for us" we find ourselves not making the time to read it.  I hope these short devotionals will keep you inspired to be in the Word, and to live wholeheartedly for God.
