My name is Eileen Lawyer – I am a wife to Mike (pastor) and mother to Rachel (junior in high school). We live in a small town in northern Idaho, USA. I will be teaching a Bible study on Philippians to some ladies in our town, and thought that perhaps I could teach the same study online. I want to reach women who love our God as I do, and yet may not have the opportunity to attend Bible studies. The purpose of this study will be to encourage all of us to be women who know our Bibles and, therefore, know and love our Savior. This study will, with the Lord’s blessing, equip us to study other books in the Bible using the same method we apply to Philippians. God has the power to change our lives as we grow in knowledge and grace of Him.
I plan on teaching this as an eight-week course. If you are interested in joining this study, please come to “class” (Becky’s blog) with your Bible, colored pencils (or highlighters) if you have any. If you do not have any available to use, that’s OK. Just have your Bible, some paper to write on and a pencil. I will ask you to do a little ‘homework’ throughout the week before the next class. It is up to you if you want to do it. However, remember that the more you put into the study, the more you will get out of it.
Since I am writing the ‘class’, I will also be shortening the study from its original workbook (Mining God’s Word – How to study the Bible; Foundation Series, Bethlehem College and Seminary Press) I will, however, attempt to reach and discuss what I feel are the highlights. If you would like to purchase the workbook, please feel free to use it during class. I will have mine with me. It is a wonderful tool – not to replace our Bibles, but to enhance our understanding of our Bibles.
With all of that said, I look forward to trying this new avenue of teaching a Bible study online. I welcome your comments, questions and even suggestions. Becky’s blog usually has a place where comments can be made. If you need to reach me about a question that you would feel uncomfortable asking online, you may reach me: eileenlawyer(at)gmail(dot)com
To God be the Glory!
