Whoo-hoo!! God gave us a double blessing this week.


Just as we were finishing our group’s new compilation, Heart Renovation: A Construction Guide to Godly Character, we learned that our 2017 compilation is a finalist in the Selah Awards at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. Breaking the Chains: Strategies for Overcoming Spiritual Bondage is a finalist in the Bible Studies category. What a blessing!


Our new compilation will be released next month. Heart Renovation is written by thirty authors and has sixty article-length Bible studies. This encouraging and insightful book is a warm-hearted powerhouse of a study on growing in Christlikeness. It is full of strategies that help us to implement the principles of heart renovation and to overcome its hindrances. The book has already affected my heart, and I can’t wait to share it with the world!

I was chained. You wouldn’t have been able to hear clanging links as I walked by, or see the chain that was metaphorically wrapped around my heart and mind. But for years, I struggled with chains of my own making. When I realized that they were hindering my walk with God, I wanted to be free. I just wasn’t sure how to do it.

Have you been there? Even children of God battle bad habits or detrimental ways of thinking, feeling, and acting. Jesus died to set us free from sin’s power in our lives, but we can still walk hindered. We can let fear, anxiety, anger, loneliness, and so forth hinder what God wants to do in our lives and how we relate to Him and other people. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We can break free and stay free. The strategies to do it are in our new book.

I love the beginning of a new Bible study semester. Every September, men and women gather at churches or in homes to study and discuss God’s Word. New friendships will be made, and prayer requests will be lifted up. Some will bake scrumptious goodies that will delight hungry tummies. The best part is diving into a book of the Bible or a particular topic and understanding how God’s Word applies to life today. Do you like the start of a new Bible study season?

As new groups are coming together or old groups are meeting again after summer break, I’d like to offer some Bible Study Helps, such as 5 ways to find application in the Bible and 4 tips for writing and teaching Bible Studies. These are found on a new page on our website. ...
