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.


The Church is a display of Christ’s active work making all things new. As citizens of the eternal kingdom of God, we live in this world yet long for our true and eternal home. 

Discussion Question: In light of today’s reading, how can you better live out the truth that we are a new creation commissioned by God? 

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.

    Sometimes I think people confuse new creation with perfect creation. God never created us to be perfect, he knew that we were not possible of that! Instead I think we can be a new creation by regularly giving our time, energy and decisions to God – by making sure we spend time in God’s word and lifting our worries to Him in prayer – we will become more and more like Jesus each day!
