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 Father in heaven is probably saying the same of me- 65 years later!

    In this season, I can feel God pulling me towards community. However, this is kind of difficult because I will be moving back to school in a month and a half. I’m
