A Word from Kris...

I encourage you to find a study that interests you and fits your time schedule.

If you are having difficulty finding a time that fits, please let me know, [email protected], so that we can address your needs in the future.

If you would prefer to do your bible studies on your own you might want to check out the W.O.R.D. method as described at https://asymphonyofpraise.com/blog/my-process-for-inscribing-the-word. For August, she has https://asymphonyofpraise.com/blog/inscribe-the-word-august-scripture-writing-plan-2?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=august_inscribe_the_word_is_here_from_a_symphony_of_praise&utm_term=2018-07-30 studying the miracles of our Savior. I encourage you explore this easy, but fruitful method for spending time in our Lord's Word. Erika sends out a link to a new study subject each month or you can explore any book of the bible using this method once you get comfortable with it. Please let me know what you think.
