Join our Ephesians Study + #WORDbeforeworld 30-Day Challenge!

April 2, 2018  - By Gretchen Saffles

Happy APRIL dear friends! We can’t believe how fast the year has gone, but as we head into a new month and a new season, we are thrilled for what’s ahead. This month we will begin an eight-week, in-depth study of Ephesians using our Walk In Grace journal as a guide. This journal uses a similar outline as our Give Me Jesus journals (brand new design coming this month!), but it includes specific verses to study each day as well as helpful questions to guide you in your study. It is a great starter tool if you aren’t sure how the Give Me Jesus Journal works, and it is a helpful way to learn how to practically and usefully study a book of the Bible in its entirety.

But we also want to invite you to join us in an exciting challenge! On April 9, we will begin a 30-day challenge that we have created to help you put the Word before the world. This is not a new idea for Well-Watered Women, as we’ve been championing the importance of studying the Word and meeting with God before jumping into the world all year through #WORDBeforeWorld. However, we want to give you practical and tangible tools to get into the habit of meeting with the Lord first!

That’s why we have created this FREE resource for you. By signing up to participate, you’ll receive a free download that contains thirty days of challenges, from picking your place where you will meet with the Lord, to writing your own psalm, to encouraging a friend with the truth you’re reading. We’ve been working on this guide with eager hearts and we cannot wait to see how God uses the commitment of women all over the world to seek Him FIRST this month.

Join the challenge by signing up here.

Below you’ll find the eight-week breakdown that we will follow to study Ephesians beginning April 9. For the questions and more in-depth study, you can purchase the Walk In Grace journal here. We’ve also created verse cards that are helpful in memorizing some key verses from this book, which you can find here. Or bundle them together and automatically save 10% at checkout!

We’d love to hear if you’re planning to follow along with us. Leave us a note in the comments and tell us where you are joining from. Invite a friend to dig into this challenge with you, and let’s commit to put the Word before the world together! We’ve also created some shareable graphics and stories if you want to invite your friends to join via social media! Feel free to use them and share them!

    So I just started and I’m definitely a seasoned Bible reader, but I think I’m a little stumped. Day two seems to be the same as day one? I’m having a hard time finding information on Ephuses ? To really figure out why Paul is writing to them.

    I joined from Perth, Australia! Beautifully written, and was short enough for me to incorporate into my daily routine to start creating a habit of #wordbeforeworld. Thankyou!
