BQOTD + Fall '11 Blog Bible Study Week 5

This morning, Beth Moore got me thinking a bit about Bible Study in general. I think one of the questions she asked is a really interesting one, and so today, instead of yammering on and on about what I've learned this week, I want to pose the question that Beth Moore asked to y'all as a Burning Question of the Day:

She asked, "What are some of your most effective ways of digesting the Word? What have you found to be the best ways to keep it alive in your heart and fresh on your mind?" (p. 162)

In other words, how do you do this thing called Bible Study? Do you carve out a special time every morning? Is it something that you want to do more often, but struggle finding time for? Do you participate with a group? Do you tend to use guided studies, or just crack open the Bible and read? Do you have any books or resources that you've found particularly helpful in study? I'd love to hear from you!


If you're new today, the Fall '11 Blog Bible study is a blog-based Bible-Study/Devotional designed for those of us who would like to take the amazing community of women bloggers online, and extend it to encouraging each other in faith. Right now, we'll be working through Paul: 90 Days on His Journey of Faith by Beth Moore. Each day has a short 1-2 page reading and a few reflection questions. Then, at the end of the week, I'll post some of my own thoughts/reflections, as well as a link-up. If you feel so inclined, I'd love for you to link up with your thoughts as well! If you'd like to join, but are just coming across this post now, it's not too late--just start whenever. And if you fall behind, no worries, and no guilt...we're all just doing the best we can, and none of us are perfect :)


  1. I usually end up reading before bed... but I want to get in the habit of reading in the morning. I think it would be better to stay my day with my heart and mind focused on the Word. I need to get my tail out of bed earlier.

    I participate in a weekly bible study. We have group discussions and questions. On my own - I prefer books that discuss a topic and refer you to the Bible. I get lost in the Bible and have a hard time just cracking it open and absorbing it.

  2. during this season (more specifically, the past 6 months) i have loved my "bible study" time: in my comfy glider/rocking chair, nursing my babe, and listening to either christian music or christian talk radio. it's been really sweet ... times of worship, thought, pondering ... while holding my little love bug.
    i keep a stack of books, my bible, a devotional and mags there, too ... and often will read as well. i am loving "crazy love" right now.
    i have to say that the mornings that i am *intentional* about carving out some quiet time, before the craziness of the day begins - those days are particularly sweet and focused. it just doesn't happen every day.
