Good morning, girls!
I am writing from the hotel restaurant in Dallas. I just had a happy omelette (I’m an omelette girl, especially if I can have a little jam on the side), some hash browns drowned in syrup, and a strong cup of coffee. Yep, I just told you what I had for breakfast—we’re close like that.
Amanda and I spent the last two days in Dallas at the Logos Women in Mistry Summit. The Logos team trained us on their Bible software (not going to lie – I teared up when I saw the interactive Bible timeline) and we sat at the feet of an incredible handful of women who lead the way in pointing the world to the Word of God.
Man, that was a good trip. We learned a ton about how to better point each other and Y’ALL to Christ, and we left so encouraged by the faithful women who have gone before us, now cheering us on as we lead the next generation. We’re so humbly thankful!
(This is the lovely Kay Arthur. You guys, she sat the two of us down and asked us questions and encouraged us for nearly an hour. So available and so passionate about the Word of God—I want to be that, too!)
So. That’s where we’ve been. We wanted to tell you because we hope it encourages you to know that, as we lead this ministry, we are seeking counsel and education and resources and—most importantly—The Lord Himself. We spent a lot of time in prayer this weekend—on our faces asking for discernment, wisdom and obedience.
We are also so excited to tell you that, following our study of Hebrews, we will be digging deep into the Old Testament book of Hosea. We’re learning so much as we prepare this study for you, and the Holy Spirit is at work already in our own lives through this little, minor-prophet book.
As you know, one fun part of preparing a new study is partnering with a new She Reads Truth Artist and making a great resource! For Hosea, we collaborated with Patrick Laurent at Quiet Boy Studio (his wife Maya is a fellow SRT-er and we are so inspired by his talent!).
Patrick worked with us over the past few weeks to create a really special study pack for Hosea. And since the book of Hosea begins with a wedding, our study pack begins with a WEDDING INVITATION!
The back, inside cover benediction involves this lovely silhouette of a woman bearing the exhortation:
“Whoever is wise, let him understand these things;
whoever is discerning, let him know them;
for the ways of the LORD are right, and the upright walk in them”
Hosea 14:9, ESV
New this time: We have been listening to your feedback! Many of you have requested that we include writing prompts, reflection questions and prayer direction in the study guides, and we agree—such a great idea! We’ve included that in the pages of this guide and we hope they will only serve to draw you closer to truth.
Hosea study guides are available now in the She Reads Truth Shop. As a treat, if you order by Sunday night, use the code “SHARE” we’ll tuck a 3-pack of scripture memory cards into your order! Add them to you your cart, and the cost will be taken off at checkout.
We hope you really love these gorgeous resources, friend. But we also hope you know that —Study Packs or not— we want YOU here and we look forward to going through this study with you!
And finally… because y’all loved today’s Hebrews devotional and image and asked that it be made into a lock screen, we did just that! We are so thankful for you, friends. So thankful.
