Each Autumn, we jump back into our studies with our new and existing workbook series.
Each workbook is like a journal with daily exercises–and an assignment for each day, for 101 days. The workbooks are designed to help you grow in your faith and to explore your heart and grow deeper in Christ through prayer and reflection. You can work at your own pace and extra space is provided on each page for notes on the daily study material, etc.
Studies on each of the three workbooks begin September 15th. Order your workbook(s) early, get familiar with them and prepare your heart to do the work. There will be a post each day to guide you through the work. The posts will give further insight about the assignment for the day, scripture references, and a short devotional. Each workbook also has a Facebook community, for those who prefer Facebook.
Victorious Living is the latest in the 101 series. Like the title implies, it is filled with 101 prayers and praises to help you live a more victorious life. This is the same format as the others in the series, with an assignment and questions for each day. This workbook is available for pre-order and will be shipped mid-August.
The Gratitude workbook has been one of our best selling workbooks. We find something to be grateful for each day for 101 days and journal about it.
One of the things that really inspires me to give my workbooks all that I have while I participate in each study, is taking the time to make each one personal. I bought a monthly date stamp kit at Hobby Lobby–but you can actually buy the old fashioned bookkeeping stamps at the dollar store in the office supply section. I have one of those too. I stamp the date on each page, as I go along. That way, I can go back months later and see how God has answered prayers. I also use other stamps to make my pages pretty and personal to me.
Sometimes, I fill up a page so much with my notes, that I don’t have much room to doodle or use my stamps. That feels really good, because I know that the subject must have struck a chord with my heart.
Most of the pages of the workbooks have a pretty, curvy flower border, designed by Candice Older, a local artist.
Other times, it helps me when I am praying about something specifically relative to the subject we are covering on that day, to paste a picture or two, which I print on regular paper from my computer, facebook, instagram, pinterest, etc.
Another tip for your workbook is to purchase a set of markers that don’t bleed through the pages. You can find those at a local office supply. Of course, you don’t need any of these extras to complete your workbooks. Just check in each day for the daily devotional, commentary or prompts to find encouragement along the way. This is your journey.
September 15! Will you be ready???
