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.


The Church is a spiritual family, God’s household, made up of men, women, and children adopted as coheirs with Christ. 

Discussion Question: In what ways have you noticed God working in you and your faith community during this reading plan?  

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.

    This has been a great reminder that we are called to be in community with other believers, share our faith with others, and to love and serve both believers and non-believers. I am very blessed to have a great community… this study has reminded me to not take it for granted.

  2. Georgia Frimpong says:

    God is showing me how to behave in his household and how to be a fruitful member of the church by being worthy of the calling to which I have been called.

  3. Anna Pearce says:

    I’ve had a lot of questions about how important it is for me and my family to be apart of a church. I feel God has been answering my questions, and prayers and pointing me in the directions I need to lead my family.

  4. Hannah Brown says:

    I’m more intentional about serving

  5. Caitlin Bieniek says:

    I think God is sending me questions that I am supposed to seek the answers to. In doing so I will deepen my faith outside of a childhood understanding.

  6. Meredith Jones says:

    I have had to solely rely on my faith with this chronic illness I’ve been battling. I’m praying I come out stronger spiritually through it all!

  7. Emma Simmons says:

    i think God is pulling me a direction of healing and leaning into him instead of putting it on myself. It is shaping me to not be anxious and to give those stresses to him and not continually bottle them up it’s changing me to be a better me and Christian.
