Good afternoon, friends!
We are happy to interrupt your day to bring you some fun updates!
We hope you are enjoying a sweet encounter with Jesus in our reading of John’s gospel—we continue to have all sorts of praise hands moments here in the SRT office ourselves! And we know that many of you adventurous souls are also working your way through the new #365DaysOfTruth plan to read the whole Bible in a year. Wheeee! We’re so inspired by you and excited for you! We’re reading along, too, grateful every day for the way that the Lord is knitting our hearts to His… and to each others around the world. That is a crazy-beautiful thing, y’all. (For those of you who’d like to follow along, it’s not too late! The Bible In A Year plan is available free on the She Reads Truth iOS and Android apps, or you can download a printable version here.)
So, what’s next?
Today we are super giddy to announce that, after John—and after another week of Hymns like the one you girls loved back in November!—we will begin reading the book of Esther!
The Esther reading plan will begin Monday, February 2, on the site and on the She Reads Truth app. Whether you are familiar with the story of Esther or this is completely new territory for you, we are so sure that you will be amazed and challenged by this incredible narrative of God’s purpose for His people and His daughters. It’s been blessing us for weeks now as we’ve worked to prepare it for you!
As usual, we had the privilege of partnering with an insanely talented artist (and fellow Truth-reader!) to create a beautiful journal and prints to go along with the Esther reading plan. We knew we liked Kate when she first submitted her artwork to us, but working with Kate Whitley of Little Things Studio has been an extreme joy. She made us “ooooh” and “ahhhh” with her unique hand-drawn designs and lettering. No, really—there were audible gasps throughout the office! This was a really fun partnership for us and we couldn’t be happier with our brand new baby, the Esther Study Pack!
You all know, study packs are never required for participation in the online study, but it is our joy to provide you with this optional, lovely resource for individual or group study. We hope you love it as much as we do!
You can purchase your Esther study pack in the She Reads Truth shop… but you may want to read to the bottom of this post first! ;)
Before we go, we also want to let you know that the ABC Scripture Wall Cards are finally back in stock! (They sold out at Christmastime time and have been unavailable for weeks—hurrah for more!!) And because we’re as excited as you are about all of the above, we have a super great deal for you—
Purchase the Esther study pack AND the ABC Scripture Wall Cards and receive $10 off your order with the code “ABCESTHER” through midnight Thursday, 1/16/15! Just put both items in your cart and enter the code at checkout.
We love you and are praying for you as we all read God’s Word together.
May our hearts grow to look more and more like His. Amen and amen.
