I just completed my first online bible study with Lysa Terkerhurst. We did a study on her book, "Am I Messing Up My Kids". Lysa is a mom of 5 children, several whom are adopted...
The online bible study was perfect for me as a mom. I could do it at home in the mornings before the kids got up. I got the book on the kindle (on my chromebook) for 2.99. So it was effortless and almost free.
Each Sunday morning we would get our week's assignment and a little video update from the leaders via email. There was also a ` blog with lots of interaction. I am trying to limit my internet time so I did not interact as much on that level.
I love how real Lysa is in her books. There is no condemnation and lots of encouragement in addition to real life mom stories.
I was inspired to be patient, thankful and to remember that we are all human.
During this study they had a contest where we had the opportunity to win Lysa's new book The Best Yes. I won a copy of it!! I can not wait to receive it and read it!!
I got to enjoy the webcast of the release of her book. It was inspiring and now I need to go read the story of Abigailin the bible.
I love that there are opportunities that us single moms, parents of special needs, toddlers and/or big families have to be encouraged and inspired.
