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.

    I’ve been drawn to the word and making sure I’m getting in it every day. SRT is such an awesome community and to see so many woman from all over the world support and lift each other up in prayer is super powerful

    I can feel him pulling me into the word. I began listening to the SRT podcast, which I Love, and wanted to be able to follow along with the readings. I have been going through some internal struggles, at home & work, and have felt led to learn how to allow God get me through.

    admittedly I was going to skip today’s prompt because I was not satisfied with my answer. I haven’t really noticed anything different with how God is working in me and my community during this reading plan. maybe it’s a circumstantial thing, but that’s where I am if I’m being honest. I have been praying for an open heart and mind when it comes to doing more with what I have for my ministry. hope y’all are having a great day!

    KIMBERLY ZIEHL- Glad to hear the update, I remember when it first happened! I’m sure this is a horrible thing to get beyond, but I am so happy to hear he went to church for the first time in over 10 years!

    Donna- loved what you wrote, and agree!

    So many good thoughts from you all! Love this study!

    On the online vs. in person, I am thankful for both and God can speak to you both ways…BUT God wants us to be in community with other believers. And yes, you can do that in others ways…but church is a place to gather to fellowship, praise, worship, and take communion. It’s a place someone or families can come to learn more and meet believers, and get guidance
    And don’t forget the kids’ church! Kids just aren’t going to get the same online, and at their level and interact and meet Christian friends.
    It’s a place to do outreach in a bigger way with others. I have grown up in church, and also watched online only for a long 6 years or so as well (and didn’t do either in my 20s!). But before we moved to a new state I prayed to find a church that we could get involved with and serve the community and we have been blessed to do just that, and have met so many new friends. Yes, you might get hurt, betrayed, or even isolated by church, they are flawed and the people are flawed.

    We fed the homeless last Friday with some from our church and gave out some clothes. It’s was such a blessing for us and them! I also love that I can attend small groups to discuss and talk, and develop deeper relationships with sisters in Christ!

    I feel like I’ve noticed myself becoming more sensitive to the other members of the Body around me and having a more immediate need to pray for those who are not in the Body.
