John With Georgia

Two weeks ago I had a conversation with a dear friend from North Carolina.  A wife and mom of three.  A friend who is living life in the hustle and noise of this crazy world.  Just like all of us.

Her name is Georgia.

And Georgia, who is a wife and mom of three, my friend who is living her life in the hustle and noise of this crazy world, is hungry for God.  She desires a closer relationship with Him.  And longs for Him to do a work in her life.

I would dare to say, again,  just like all of us.

Georgia told me, “I started reading through the Bible, but got overwhelmed.  I didn’t grow up in church, so I’m not sure of the best place to start.  I want to learn. And read. And grow, but I need someone to help me begin.”

I’ll stop there.

Hear me out – I never want to discourage anyone from reading through the Bible. I’m not crazy.  But taking on the entire Bible, start to finish, is a hearty task.  Even for the most seasoned Bible-reader.

So I encouraged Georgia, “Read through the Book of John with me.  Let’s start there.  I’ll do it with you!”

She hugged me.  My sweet friend Georgia from North Carolina.

A wife and mom of three.  Hungry and ready to grow.

As I sat before the Lord yesterday, He gave me an idea.

I love it when that happens!

I began mapping out the Gospel of John in small, bite-size pieces.  I made sure to keep the main points in tact and each section brief.  Together we will read a daily taste of poignancy – a perfect portion for any palette.

Five days a week. Georgia and I.

From today until Thanksgiving. Just in time for Advent.

AND!  I’d love to extend this invitation to you!!

Will you join us on our 10-week journey?

The journey of John With Georgia

Georgia

Come each morning to our Facebook page and find your daily reading there.   I won’t overwhelm you, I promise.

Here’s what you need:

1) A Bible that is an enjoyable read.  (I love you King James, but for this read I am thinking the New Living Translation)

2) Clean pages of a journal or notebook for those “ah-ha” moments or memorable verses.

3)  Find your Georgia.  And if you can’t find a friend named Georgia, then maybe a Kelly, Beth or Kathryn. Share this journey through John with a friend.

So will you join me for John with Georgia?  Oh good!!  Here is today’s reading to jump-start our week!

John 1:1-34

Share your commitment on Facebook.  Tweet your teenager.  Text your friends.  Call your dad.  Send a pigeon.  Whatever you can do to spread the word… that you are on a journey through the Gospel of John.

I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. John 6:35

  1. Hi, Becky! I’d love to do the study with you, but I’m not on Facebook. I disconnected from social media a couple years ago.

    Do you plan on putting these on your blog also?

    Thank you, Kristin

I means so much to hear from you!
