The very first Awakened Devotional Bible Study for Christian Educators is now drawing to a close, and I'm just amazed at what God has done through it. Over 160 teachers and other education professionals have participated! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to share ideas, struggles, and prayer requests with that wonderful group. It's never easy to make time for a Bible study during the hectic first semester of the school year, and I'm proud of each one of the participants who has hung in there for so long.
The next online Bible study for teachers will begin the first week of January. If you're hoping to start the new year out right and want a group of Christian educators to support you in the ups and downs of classroom life, please join us!
The online Bible study and book club for The Awakened Devotional Study Guide for Christian Educators works like this: each week, you'll have the chance to read the devotion and related chapter in Awakened: Change Your Mindset to Transform Your Teaching. I send out a weekly post with the reflection questions and videos/lyrics for songs that correlate with the week's message. You can respond in a private blog community whenever it's convenient. Share as much or as little as you'd like, but you're encouraged to share your reflections, prayer requests, and whatever God is teaching you. Some people comment almost every week, while others only chime in occasionally, and still others participate only by reading. You can do whatever works best for you! If you fall behind, pick up where you left off whenever you have time. There's no obligation.
The group is free to join, and the sign up form is here. After signing up, make sure you check your email for a confirmation link. If you don't click that, you won't be able to access the group! Sometimes the invitations get sent to spam folders, so if you don't see it in your inbox, check your junk mail and let me know if the invite didn't arrive.
If you don't have the devotional and Awakened yet, you can get the eBook versions which are delivered immediately after purchase. Print copies ordered through my website are shipped via Priority Mail, so you'll have them within 3-4 days.
If you want to buy copies for other teachers as Christmas presents and then participate in the study together, make sure you purchase them this week so I can make sure they'll arrive to you before the holidays. You can email me for group discount information.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how God speaks to us in this group through one another and through His word, and I'm grateful for the Christian teachers I know He's bringing together to strengthen and encourage one another. Hope to see you there!
