There is a book I read to my little kids in Sunday school. It’s called The Big Red Tractor and it’s about a village who had all these fields to plow, and did it all by hand. So then here comes this tractor, with a manual. A way to do it so much better. But they didn’t read the manual. They didn’t even get what the tractor was supposed to help them with.

So it did nothing. Seemed pointless. Until they read the manual and their whole life changed. The story is told to teach kids that life is like a tractor, and the Bible is like the manual to the tractor.
Some of you have like never done a Bible study. Completely not even crossed your mind before.
Some of you do them all the time, wherever, at church, at a friend’s house, with your small group.
Some of you are just in a season where your just plain dang busy. You have small kids, or working a million hours, or you just can’t for whatever reason. Maybe your just burnt out on so many things to do. I get it. So have been there. I might be there now actually.
Or maybe you have never, ever touched a Bible and you know nothing about it really. It’s for you. It’s not too late, and you can know absolutely nothing to start.
I wanted to share with you, my sweet friends, two completely awesome ways to study the Bible just right there from your phone, or computer, or tablet. Wherever you are in your crazy life.
1. The first study is a website called “She Reads Truth” (www.shereadstruth.com). They even have an app for your phone which means you can literally do this anywhere you have your phone. Lots of new studies, that you can start at any time. They have one that is live. And the rest you just start when you want. There is SO. MUCH. HERE. Really cool site, I’m telling you right now, this is the kind of site you will open with your coffee in the morning and just start the day better. Love it. And you will too.
2. The second study is from a ministry called IF EQUIP. It’s a group of amazing women who I completely respect and would hang out with, you know, they aren’t crazy, you’ll like them. Click here to see and read about who they are.
They started this movement to gather, equip and unleash the next generation of women to live out their purpose and know God more deeply. Their Bible study program is a tool that is holistic, strategic and deep. By providing easy online access to a like-hearted community and relevant resources. AND they are starting a new study tomorrow, Jan 19, on Joshua. They have a short video everyday, and they even have the Scripture written out for when you don’t have a Bible.
So girls, let’s do this. If God is real, which I think He is, then we have to see what He says to us. We are all at such completely different places, and have such different stories. God will meet us right smack dab in the middle of our life. If you have never touched a Bible before, or you are just looking for a great way to do it online. It’s time. Let’s make 2015 a year to live on purpose. For the better. To live out love. We’ve got a manual, let’s read it. Click away my sisters.
By the way, if you don’t have a Bible. Click here to jump to Amazon, and order this.
And if you have one, that just hasn’t been picked up in a while, get it girl. We are not alone. He is with us. Let’s be with Him.
