BY She Reads Truth

Since 2012, She Reads Truth has maintained a singular mission: to be women in the Word of God every day. Ten years later, our community includes “Shes” from across the globe, but our mission hasn’t changed.

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading This Is The Church, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your  own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read. Each day for this series, we’ll include a brief summary of the reading along with a prompt for conversation.


As the continuation of Christ’s ministry on earth, the Church acts as salt and light in a decaying and dark world around us. 

Discussion Question: What encouragement did you find in this week’s reading? 

Take time to reflect on your Scripture reading and today’s question. Share what you are learning with others in the community in the comments.

    I love that our actions speak as loud as our words. I do not have to proclaim him from the mountaintops, but by a salty life well lived so that others see me as different as a result of my intimacy with Christ. I let Him in to live in the temple I prepare…U am transfo egg med with less gossip, less judgment & others notice. If I am asked about it I am prepared with an answer which I intentionally review periodically so I can let His light shine. Asking God to provide those opportunities is more often than not an answered prayer.

    I find encouragement in the instructions regarding sharing the hope that is in me with gentleness, respect and a good conscience to anyone who asks.

    I loved Hebrews 11:17-40 ❤️ A reminder of all of those that faced adversaries, and followed Christ through to the end.

  4. Christy Rikard says:

    I loved 2 Corinthians 4:6 and the thought of God shining in our hearts to give us knowledge of Him through Jesus.
