Every now and again in our nearly twelve years on the internet, we ask for your input. (Well, we always welcome it!) We conduct a survey of our most faithful readers to see what’s on your heart and how we can come alongside you in your journey to becoming a woman of courage. In our last such survey, we saw one theme come through loud and clear:
You want more Jesus, and you want more of God’s Word.
You want deep and meaningful Bible studies that you can do on your own or with a group of friends, and you don’t want them to take a long time.
You want depth of study, but understandably, you don’t want to spend the entire day pulling apart obscure texts and solving biblical mysteries. We get it.
Friends, we heard you, and we’ve answered:
Starting in August, join us for Bible Study Mondays right here on the website! We’re going to study the Bible — together, right here. We want to work through God’s Word with as many friends as possible, and Bible Study Mondays is one simple way we can do it. No signups, no Facebook groups, no hoops to jump through. Simply join us right here each Monday, starting in August. For six weeks, we will share a story, reflection questions, discussion videos, and more from our next Bible study: Courageous Influence: Embrace the Way God Made You for Impact, written by our editorial manager Grace P. Cho and featuring stories from (in)courage writers. This new Bible study is for you, whether you feel you have influence in your life or not (we guarantee that you do!).
We developed these Bible studies, gathered stories from our writers, and truly custom-made them for you. We’re just about to release our third study, and we’re loving the whole collection. Courageous Simplicity and Courageous Joy are available wherever books are sold. Courageous Influence will be available in July, followed by Courageous Kindness, coming in October.
We know that in order to really live our lives deeply and remain connected to Jesus, we need to know what the Bible says. Our Courageous Bible Studies offer just that — God’s Word on four thoughtful, unique, and important topics.
Each study includes weekly discussion videos that feature (in)courage writers discussing their way through the study, just like you. The studies also include thoughtful reflection questions accompanying each day. You can answer all of the questions or just some of them; it’s your journey so it’s entirely up to you!
Since there are four, it’s the easiest way to plan your year of Bible study! Use them on your own, in your women’s ministry at church, or with a group of friends. However you study Scripture, our series of Courageous Bible Studies provides a natural plan for your ongoing study.
But wait — there’s more! (said like a TV game show host) We’re so committed to reading God’s Word with you that we have four more Bible Studies coming out next year! Another complete set of four studies, designed to be worked through on your own or together with a group, which makes them perfect for whatever season you find yourself in. If you’re keeping track, that’s two full years of studying the Bible, all mapped out for you! Seriously, it couldn’t be easier to jump right in and let us do the heavy lifting of organizing, planning, and finding studies to do with your group.
We love coming alongside you in your real-life, honest, everyday glory in so many ways. You’ve read our devotionals, sipped tea from our mugs, pored over our books, worn our t-shirts and jewelry, carried our bags, and now our Bible studies offer one more way we can live out our faith together. (in)courage is thrilled to be your place for ongoing, meaningful Bible study that fits seamlessly into your life.
