It’s coming up on sweet summertime. Grilling outside, glasses of sweet tea on a porch table. Iced vanilla lattes from the drive-thru as your air conditioning keeps you cool. Kids running through the sprinkler. Walks in the late-evening twilight as the fireflies emerge from lush woods. Toasted marshmallows. Road trips and summer camp. Late nights and drippy ice cream cones. The glory of God streaking red and pink across the sky in the sunrise.
For all these reasons and more, we’re big fans of summer. We’re also pretty sure that summer is the perfect season to dig deeper into God’s word with friends. What’s simpler than pouring a glass of lemonade and inviting a neighbor to your table? Well, what’s simpler is not doing it at all, but oh, the sweetness we miss out on when we don’t make room for friendship. So we just happen to have TWO (in)courage-approved Bible studies, just right for your summer gatherings!
We would love to give you a FREE week of these studies, so you can choose just the right one for you and your friends!
- Click here for the first week of the We Saved You A Seat study! Sign up to receive the first week of the study, including the first video discussion: Friendship Takes Showing Up.
- Click here for a sampler of the Just Open the Door study! Sign up and we’ll send you an excerpt. You can preview the video discussions here.
We will also be randomly selecting FIVE of you from that sign-up list to receive the brand-new Just Open the Door Leaders Kit for FREE! The leader kit includes the study guide and two DVDs with all seven of the video sessions. Besides the brownies and sweet tea, it’s everything you need for a summer study with friends!
Read on to learn more about these two fabulous Bible studies:
Open your front door to the neighborhood and use Just Open the Door to welcome them inside! Get the leader kit + extra study books at DaySpring (or wherever Bible studies are sold.) The focus of Biblical hospitality is so important these days. Learn from other women how Jesus practiced hospitality (spoiler alert: it may not look like what you’d think!), and figure out once and for all the difference between entertaining and true hospitality.
Use We Saved You a Seat with the high school girls and ladies circles in your church! Did you know there’s a women’s and a teen girls version? Pick up a leaders kit + extra study books at DaySpring (or wherever Bible resources are sold.) We love hearing stories from churches who have done a mother/daughter, mentor/mentee, confirmation students/leaders study together using WSYAS. The stories are timeless and the lessons eternal.
At (in)courage, we want to lean in close and tell you all of our favorite things. These two studies? They’re at the very top of our faves list, right alongside sweet summertime. So sign up above for your free first week(s), and when you do, you’ll also be entered to win a full study kit. Then open your doors and see who comes in to join you at the table. Be sure to tell us how your summer study goes, too! Our door is open wide, and we’ve got a seat saved just for you.

Just Open the Door is on the top of my book pile! Next! I’m really looking forward to it!
Can’t wait to read both of these books! We just moved across the country and we are ready to Just open the door to our new neighbors!
Beth Williams says
So proud of Lisa-Jo & Jen Schmidt. They have written good books on hard topics for women. Women want friendships & it can be hard at times. We get busy with family & life. I pray these studies help women have great lasting friendships.
I’d love to read these books. Thank you for the giveaway!!
Our Ladies Bible Study group has been wanting to do Just Open the Door!
In order to do the We Saved you a seat, do you need the videos? Me and a friend of mine facilitate an online bible study group and would love to do it on this topic, but dont know how to make the resources available to the whole group.
Can you please help?
