A week or so ago, I shared on my Instagram stories that I was going to do this bible study during the Advent season and asked if anyone would be interested in doing it with me. A couple of you said yes and went ahead and bought the book. I am really looking forward to this!
I love hosting bible studies. I love teaching and encouraging women to see God for who He is. It is truly my passion and I believe it is my calling.
Advent traditionally starts the fourth Sunday before Christmas and goes until Christmas Day. I am going to start a week early so that we are finished the week before Christmas. I know how busy it can get during that final week!
We will start on Monday, November 23rd and end on Monday, December 21st. For the local ladies, I am happy to meet with those that feel comfortable meeting at our local coffee shop at 9:30 am. We will meet for about an hour. But for those that are not local, I am planning on doing either a pre-recorded video or maybe a live stream along with a blogpost where you can comment and interact with one another.
To be honest, I’ve never really celebrated Advent and haven’t looked too much into it until this year. But after the year it’s been, I just felt led to truly get into the Christmas spirit this year. It does not come easy for me, I have a tendency to stress about all the gifts I have to buy, gatherings I have to attend or plan, making sure my kids get what they ask while staying under budget. December is also our anniversary and we normally travel somewhere to celebrate so I stress about getting it done before we leave or when we get back.
Stress is the name of the game for me in December and to be honest I’m over it. I’m done letting the standards of this world steal the joy, peace, hope and love that this season represents.
And I couldn’t think of a better way to focus on the true reason for this season, than to study God’s word together.
I’m looking forward to this, girls!
I hope y’all have a GREAT Monday!!
