Begin your QUEST here………………

002

 Feel free to join our online group anytime: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1447039392265675/

Bible journaling and art accompany each Bible Study lesson!!!  

I am a Christian woman who is on a pilgrimage to experience God’s love in a deeper and more powerful way.  I would LOVE for you to join me!  The plan….. together WE will search for God where we KNOW He was and STILL IS – in His Word!! Reading and studying The Word of God is probably not new for many of us.  If you ever attended a VBS or a Sunday school class , you were most likely introduced to some of  the Gospel stories from a young age. There may have even been a felt board with cut outs of animals and angels involved, but now as adults, some of us are craving MORE!  I am ONE OF THOSE- are YOU???!!! I have led many Bible studies in the past. Each time I lead a study I find myself always wanting MORE- MORE history, MORE meaning, MORE relevance to my life, MORE GOD!  If this sounds like you- Welcome to OUR journey ! I am excited for us to share our findings and thoughts with one another as we search for God in all the “old places.”

I hope you decide to “follow” this blog and visit it often.  There will be new LOVE QUESTS to join. Each of these quests will be centered around ONE goal… to DRAW you CLOSER to God!! We will not only study God’s Word together, we will take time to FEEL His LOVE through our quests!  There will be art activities to create, journal prompts to finish, and discussion questions to discuss.  All of these activities will be designed to MOVE us CLOSER to our Heavenly Father!  Are you ready to FEEL GOD’S LOVE on a DEEPER LEVEL????

The design of the studies will be very flexible. You can work at your own pace- no pressure….  participate in as many parts as you desire. Invite a group of friends to participate with you, OR join solo- either way- you will NOT be alone on your journey!!! 🙂 🙂

Information for the Bible Study can be found by clicking on the tab:  Amazing Bible Study and reading the information. Each week there will be a new lesson, an art activity, and a reflection piece.

Feel free to also join our Facebook GROUP page:    https://www.facebook.com/groups/Biblestudiesfromtheheart/   ……. this is where we will discuss the lessons and share thoughts as a group….  Facebook is totally OPTIONAL

ALSO- take time to read the devotions and inspirational stories …..

I am SO glad you are here!!!

  1. Thank you for your insights. God’s love for Israel was also seen from the fact that there was a famine in Israel (& many other places). God had provided food in Egypt through Joseph’s plan of storing up massive amounts of food for future needs. He does the same for us when we are faced with dangerous famines of food or emotional & spiritual needs. As we learn to endure suffering He makes His love shine through those dark clouds.

  2. I might be interested in joining. The past two years I have attempted to start something like this with my congregation and other friends during Lent. It was fun and rewarding but most people didn’t understand or buy into the sharing and study aspect, using it instead for a daily devotional. That’s fine but Personally, I was disappointed not to develop the study and sharing aspect. Are you just starting this? Will there be more info and “how tos” coming?… Sorry a little techno challenged here…

    1. My study will begin in Exodus…. I will expand upon the blogs I have posted under Love in Bible Stories section of my blog. I am drawn to the Old Testament right now- if God NEVER changes and if HE LOVES us… then I want to FIND evidence that EVERYTHING He has done since the beginning of time is based on His LOVE 🙂

  3. Leslie, thank you so much for creating this. I’m looking forward to the study beginning June 1. Ok, anyone that bible journals may understand this…is it just me or are you already thinking of ideas and drawings for Exodus? lol This is going to be great and I think I’m already connected on facebook, but I’m going to double check. Thanks, Leslie.

      1. Yes Leslie , Thanks for you help. I found it listed under the Menu button. What a strange place to put it! Lol. I am a slow starter as we are having some remodeling done this week but I am looking forward to journaling again. I have never tried the art journaling but am looking forward to trying that too. Thanks so much for all your hard work on getting this group up and running

  7. Love doing this! I still need go get art supplies, but I am excited to learn about how much God loves me! I was trying to do us search for a song that we sang just this past Sunday at church. I’m not sure of the exact title, but it shouts out loud: I AM! and the song was so full of love and praise for our Lord when we sang it. I couldn’t find the song but I came across some awesome images doing a search for “I AM”. I may get my creative juices flowing. One that I really liked was from the website called Iamtechnologyblog and it looks like it may be an ad for this tech guy to sell his services. But all the words used are God! Compassion, strength, joy, wisdom and more! Thanks for getting me going!

  8. I didn’t receive my lesson for Week 2. However I was able yo back into it thru the June Archives. My question is do we need to register for each weeks lessons individually or once we sign up will we receive a link for each lesson by email? I have a friend who signed up too and it isn’t clear to either of us how access our lessons each week.

      1. Hi Leslie! I haven’t ventured to the FB section- my family gets onto me all the time about my complacency with FB:) I making a course, however, which suggested the possible gain from having a FB page and I actually started the process of creating a page. All those words being said (😬) I will definitely check out your FB page!
        Blessings! Greta

  9. I’m new to Bible journaling/colouring, but am finding it a wonderful way to savour the Word. I’m excited that you will be staying with the same verse/passage all week – then it will REALLY sink in ☺️
