“Women In The Word” book!

by

Hey there!

Girls, this is the day we have been anticipating for months! We finally get to launch the “Women in the Word” book for presale!

Remember way back when we first shared our vision for our summer book with you? We asked you to send in photos of your beautiful selves for the “big book,” and your response had us all literally in humble, happy tears! I know that even with the overwhelming number of images we received, we still only got to see a fraction of your faces. But, as the emails rolled in, it was as if the Lord was saying, Look! These are my daughters! Love them as I love them! 

And friends, the stories you shared as you sent in your photos were amazing. Stories of redemption and heartbreak, hope and healing, restoration and community. Wow. If we didn’t already believe it, we now know through your emails that God is very much at work all around the world in your hearts and lives. Praise Him!

As you know, She Reads Truth’s mission from day one has been only this: “Women in the Word of God every day.”

This “Women in the Word” reading plan couldn’t be more in line with that goal. In these 9 weeks, we will set about the joyful task of finding Jesus in the stories of 44 women in the Old and New Testaments. And by reading about the women in the Word, we get to be women in the Word!— growing in relationship with the Author of all stories, including our own.

The plan begins Monday, June 1 (SRT’s 3rd Anniversary! What?!) and runs through Saturday, August 1.

“Women in the Word” is not a study and it’s not a devotional. It is a 9-week reading plan of daily appointments with our God and His Word. The plan will be free on the site all summer long, with a response each weekday to the story of the “woman of the day” (just like a typical SRT study!).

The big, happy, companion book (the one with your pretty pictures!), is available for preorder beginning TODAY! (Though it’s not required to participate in the study!)

The “Women in the Word” book includes:

  • all the Scripture for each day, all printed out in the book
  • daily artwork by Cymone Wilder and Eva M Winters to help us memorize the truths God is teaching us in His Word
  • a Grace Day every Saturday and a Weekly Truth every Sunday, to make space for catching up, praying Scripture, and writing God’s Word on our hearts
  • plenty of space to record your notes, thoughts, and prayers
  • and, don’t forget: photos of YOU

The last two “big books” we’ve created (Lent and Advent) both sold out before the plans began. We are seriously so sorry that happened (you all surprise us every time!). We hope, hope, hope this time we are printing enough for every woman who wants a book to be able to order one. And we think you’ll love it as much as we do!

We’ll try to give you some behind-the-scenes peeks in the next week or so as the book makes its way through all the many steps of the printing process (we love our local printer!). Be sure you are following us on Instagram to see pictures and maybe even some videos along the way! In the meantime, here are a few snaps from around the SRT office as we edited and checked and tweaked and proofed for days…

making of the book

The production of this book has been exhilarating and exhausting and live-giving all at once—even down to the day we toiled over paper choices for over an hour! As we read through the Scripture accounts for each of the 44 women and carefully selected passages for the book, it was surprising to us (why is this still surprising??) how living and active God’s Word truly is! Even as we are prepare to lead you all, the Holy Spirit is convicting and sanctifying us as we go!

God’s word is powerful!

FUN FACT: it’s a flip book! The Old Testament starts on one side (that’s Stormye from Texas—one of the original Shes—on the OT cover!), then flip the book upside-down to start the New Testament on the other side (with the lovely Sueann reading Truth all the way across the world from us in Singapore)!

Those are the most recent photos we have of the book-in-progress! Our unbound, hard proof. Seriously holding a piece of our hearts in our hands over here!

————

First and foremost, we invite you to gather your people (the ones who live in your neighborhood, who attend your church, or who you haven’t seen in ages but would love to connect with!) and plan to join us this summer as women in the Word!

And second, if you want this big, beautiful book we’ve been creating for you (is it funny that it feels a little bit like a yearbook?), we have just released it for preorder in the She Reads Truth shop!

—> IMPORTANT: This is a preorder. Women in the Word books will begin shipping Tuesday, May 12th, so anything else you want from the shop before that date should be ordered separately.

In order for us to fill your orders as quickly and efficiently as possible from our happy little HQ in Franklin, TN, we are simplifying things this time by making the book available in just one way (no study pack v. book-only). Even though the book is MUCH larger than in the past, we are keeping the former “big book” price and still including the things we feel are important for the plan!

When you order arrives, here’s what you’ll receive:

  • 1 – 220 page, full-color book (more than double the size and time of the Advent book!)
  • 1 – 8×10 “Isaiah 43:1″ art print
  • 8 – mini prints of the Weekly Truths

For as long as the “Women in the Word” book is in preorder (through 5/8), we’re offering $6 off your Women in the Word book order with the code ‘InTheWord’. (Helpful information: This is the biggest discount we will offer for this book leading up to the first day of the study, so feel safe knowing you won’t miss a better deal later on!)

There will be a full line of prints and other items to accompany the Women In The Word study when we launch our summer line on June 1, but we wanted to make the book available to everyone just as soon as possible!

Thanks again to everyone who sent in a photo. We honestly think we were able to include at least one photo of every person who submitted a photo before the deadline (three cheers for our creative department)!

 

Grace and peace, friends! It’s going to be a great summer!

    How do I get this book?

  • Kimberley

    Greetings Sisters,

    I am looking at leading a small group this fall for Mothers & Daughters (teen girls). I would LOVE to leverage “Women in the Word” as our weekly study. I realize you mention earlier in your text that this is not a study or devotional, but could it be? Small groups start up in sept and go through November. I’d love to hear from you. Thank you in advance!

  • It says it costs money?

  • It says that the plan will be free all summer, but it costs to add it to my bookshelf. Am I looking at the wrong one?

    • Kellee

      I noticed the same thing this morning, I have the same question as Whitney…

  • How do we interact with other people on here while doing this study?

  • If I purchased the Women in the Word book do I also need to purchase the plan on my SRT app? I would love to follow along with my other sisters and see what they are learning from the study!

  • how do I order from Canada?

  • Cherokee Taylor

    I don’t see it on my app yet. Will it appear June 1st? I would like to read through this one. 44 women in old and New Testament .

  • Wilna Cherelus

    Yay!! Almost here

  • I love this app it’s cool I love the bible wallpaper

  • Wow… When I saw the book I almost started to cry… To see all the others, all my sister’s! Amazing!! I don’t want to write in it, it is so gorgeous!!!!! <3
    I'm so pumped for it to start!

  • Jenny t.

    Can’t wait!! 10 days and counting!

  • Anyone started reading

  • Received my study pack last week and it’s gorgeous! I’m so excited to take part in this!! ❤️❤️

  • Elise Maynor

    I ordered my books yesterday, before I even knew a Facebook site existed, and wasn’t aware of the $4 discount since it wasn’t in the news section in the app. Is a refund for the discount available?

    I’m thrilled to have found you ladies. I’m so ready to lean into His breath, more than I ever have before.

  • Beyond the Road Less Traveled

    Got mine today in Guam! So excited!

  • I’ve had the app downloaded for a few days and just got into it tonight… And ordered 3 books! Wow, I cannot wait. One for me, mother in law, and sis in law! :-)

  • Aubry Vantress

    Have all of the pre orders shipped out? My cousin ordered three weeks after me and she has hers already and I have not seen mine yet. Just excited to get started

  • Liz Walker

    First time study with She Reads Truth. Excited! Ordered the book today.

  • Hi there everyone
    I’m not sure how old you lot are but I’m only a young teen and I’m kinda confused

  • Hi Rachel! I’ve been following and reading SRT for awhile but this book is my first purchase. I notice you sell them in bulk…how would I go about doing this as a weekly study for a ladies ministry or small group? Thanks!! ❤️

  • So excited!! Bought mine last night 8pm Hawaiian time. Missed the free highlighter Friday deal. But I don’t care. So excited!!!

  • Which version/translation of the Bible is used for the verses that are printed in this book?

  • Tina Mulkey

    I put the women in the word book in my cart, and when I went to check out, I entered “intheword” to receive $6 off and it said the code didn’t work. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help!! :-)

  • Hannah Presley

    Is there a way to order 4 books (not 3, 6, or 12) and still get the bulk price?? I’m trying to order today with the coupon code– Help!!

    • SheReadsTruth

      Hi Hannah! So glad you emailed us and love that you are gathering friends to join us for the study!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • Hi! Can someone tell me how long it’ll take to ship? Moving soon and trying to figure out which address I should send to! Thanks!!

  • In Christ I'm Found

    I ordered mine! Can’t wait to get it. I submitted 2 pics, I wonder which one will make it in the book.

  • Hello! I’m a little confused, is this book separate from the reading plan? If so, will the reading plan be sold eventually online? Maybe you can explain this a little more for me. Thank you!

  • Anybody else thrown off by the second (technically third) paragraph? Not quite sure what to make of it… maybe some extra typing missed by the editing process? Am I just reading it wrong? Honestly asking.

  • Hi I just got this app and I love it already

  • So excited!

  • June 1st is our 2nd wedding anniversary! The years fly by! Glad to share that date with you ladies :D

  • Will it be available on the app?

    • SheReadsTruth

      Hi Jules! Yes! The plan will be available at SheReadsTruth.com and on the SRT app beginning June 1! So glad you will be joining us!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • Erin Larsen

    Will this book eventually be at Lifeway??

    • SheReadsTruth

      Hi Erin! No, this book will only be available through ShopSheReadsTruth.com! I hope you will join us!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • sunnysusan52

    Thanks you that you always don't need to buy a book. I have throughly enjoyed each day reading with you.

  • Are you offering any bulk discounts on this?

    • shereadstruth

      Hi Shannon! If you click the drop down menu on the Women In The Word product page at ShopSheReadsTruth.com, you can find our bundle discounts for packs of 3, 6 and 12! You're welcome to combine those to create the number of books you need. If you have any additional questions, feel free to email Laura at [email protected]!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

      • Shannon

        Thanks for the reply, Kaitlin. So, what about books 13+? Will we still get the same discount as the bundle of 12? When I start to add in the books over 12, it doesn't reflect the bulk pricing on those additional books. Is there any way to get that all worked out? Thank you!

        • shereadstruth

          Hi Shannon! You're welcome to combine the bundle packs (For example, a 12 pack + 3 pack), but if you have inquiries about a specific number, you're always welcome to email Laura at [email protected]. She'll take great care of you! xoxo-Kaitlin 

  • YAYYYYY!!!!!!!!!! So excited to read this. I LOVED the lent book, so I know this one will not disappoint! =)

  • Hi. I'm new to SRT, so I was wondering if the book is a hard cover or more like a magazine? Thought about giving it to a few special girls for graduation and wanted it to last.

    • shereadstruth

      Hi Laura! Welcome to our community! It's a soft-touch perfect bound book, and I'm planning to keep it out on my coffee table long after the study is over! I think it would be the perfect graduation gift! If you have any additional questions, feel free to email [email protected]. Laura will take great care of you!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • It looks like it's going to be a great book. I hope it continues to work well. http://love-pink-forever09.blogspot.com/

  • I wish I could have a copy of this!

  • JamesGurl

    What exactly is the black envelope program? I am new to SRT and have seen it mentioned before?

    • shereadstruth

      Hi friend! The Black Envelope is a subscription program that we offered at the beginning of 2015 to receive all of the study journals for the year! It's closed now, but be on the lookout later this year to sign up for 2016!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • So excited to get my hands on this gem–love the SRT girls and ministry!! It’s been a life changer for me and my walk with the Lord!!!

  • I am can’t wait to receive it. Thank you so much.

  • Kristin Deavers

    I’m new to the SRT community but just preordered this and am so exited to start! ❤️

  • Wonderfully Made Pursuits

    SRT's anniversary is also my birthday. :) Happy day for us all!

  • Kendall_S

    So excited to see this study guide and to begin the summer study!!!!!!! :)

  • So excited for this! Is it two books or just one big one? And do you know how many prints will go along with the study and are these prints included or to be brought separately?

    • shereadstruth

      Hi Shakira! It's one big book! The Old Testament starts on one side, then you'll flip the book upside-down to start the New Testament on the other side! The study pack includes one 8 x 10 print and 8 mini prints of the weekly truths!

      We'll release the full line of additional prints on June 1st separately from the book!

      So excited you'll be joining us!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • So excited for this study! Is it included in the black envelope program?

  • KatSmith1026

    Yes, yes YES! Oh it's gorgeous and I can't wait to use it to dig into Scripture with the other She's this summer! I've said it so many times before, and it never gets old – thank you for all you do for this community, for your faithfulness and following the Lord in shepherding us through the Internet. Blessings, ladies (& gentleman)!

  • Beautiful job ladies! I CANNOT wait to get into this and meet with the Lord daily with your help!
