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.

    My husband and I moved in the middle of COVID and are really struggling to find a church home. We want to find a place our friends would feel welcomed in and not immediately judged, and that is unfortunately hard in our new town. We’re also just frustrated with how political the church has gotten and what type of politics it supports.

    I’ve noticed a greater desire for community and involvement in my local church. I’m working on making it more if a priority in my life along with making it a priority in my children’s lives.

    Charlie, I understand completely. My husband and I are not feeling fulfilled. We are United Methodist and it is well know there is a chasm that will split the church as we know it. Also, I was reading some work of my daughters friend who is very intellectual and studies theology daily. She pointed out that
    churches/ministers need to realize we aren’t there to be entertained, we are there to learn, expand our knowledge so we can witness from strength of knowledge, to be God’s children, be the hands and feet of Jesus. AND to not sugar coat what scripture says just to please political or popular agenda. I have become very uncomfortable with the hierarchy of many denominations and now see why so many nondenominational churches are doing well. I am not discontented with God, we are tight but church services are becoming a struggle. Our volunteer/community work is fine. We are praying for God’s discernment.

    It is encouraging that my effort to live for Him and to follow His lead is not for nothing. He sees it, and every small thing that I do for Him can be used for His Kingdom.
