Treasure Seeker: A New Bible Study Resource for Women

Treasure Seeker: A New Bible Study Resource for Women

Here’s the thing…

I fear many women are famished for the Word of God. It’s no wonder why. Many of us have been feeding on the crumbs which devotionals give rather than feasting on the Bread of life. We’ve been told as women that we can live off of those crumbs, and that the feast of deep truths and theology is better left for the men. But theology and an immense knowledge of the Bible is for every disciple of Christ.

Malnourished women of the quick-fix devo must become true women of the Word. We must move from milk to solid food. I’m excited to announce that I’ve created a workbook for the women whose hearts declare, “Give us the meat!”

For everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.

9 Tips for a Deeper Study of God’s Word

9 Tips for a Deeper Study of God’s Word

This article was originally published on Maple Alps


Until recent years, you could have found me approaching bible study like most women. I’d flip to a Psalm or open up a devotional and spend about 5 minutes trying to apply it to my life. I craved something more, but just wasn’t equipped to do anything about it.

While devos have their place, women would do well to strive for deeper immersion into the Word of God.

So, here are some tips I’ve learned over the years that I thoroughly recommend adding to your bible study routine.

1. Pray.

Prayer is so important. If I’m being honest though, it’s also the step I tend to forget about way too easily. When approaching God’s word, we can pray about the following things:

  • What book of the bible should I read?
  • Pray for understanding and wisdom at the beginning, and during your study as questions come up.

Those Who Suppress the Truth Prove Gods Existence

Those Who Suppress the Truth Prove Gods Existence

Post-modernism is the new black. Many millennials wear it like a favorite pair of toms. They let it soak into their minds like an inspirational quote on Instagram. And the complete rejection of logic is saddening.

“Your truth is your truth.”

Actually, no, that isn’t true. The definition of truth is that which is in accordance with fact or reality. There is only one reality and only one truth. You can disagree with what I believe to be true but you can’t claim two contradicting beliefs to both be true.

Furthermore, the rejection of truth actually proves the existence of a holy, righteous God.

The Law Reveals Our Sin

Ask almost anyone on the street and they’ll admit that they’re a sinner. This is because each of us are image bearers of God (Genesis 1:26-27) who have the law written on our hearts.

They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them…
(Romans 2:15 ESV)

Even those who have never heard the gospel have God’s law seared into their consciences.…

True Believers Bear the Fruit of Repentance

True Believers Bear the Fruit of Repentance

Modern day Evangelicalism has done us a disservice. The desire for numbers instead of true converts has left non believers with a sense of salvation and the Church stained. In an effort to be “seeker friendly”, we have created a tragedy. False hope has been placed upon the unconverted in the name of easy believism.

“60 people made a profession of Christ last week at our block party!” Awesome. Where are they now? Why aren’t they attending church?

So we’ve made up a rule to cover our consciences. We’ve gone as far as to create a camp of “believers” who aren’t growing. But scripture doesn’t speak to anything of the sort.

Between the “I see that hand”s and the “Pray this prayer”s, I’ve become convinced that we have brain washed ourselves.

Confession of faith has been taken out of the context of the whole Bible and made to be the only requirement for salvation.…

The Protection of God’s Word

The Protection of God’s Word

Across the world, Christian women like you and me, trot through life guided by their feelings. Prone to falling prey to deceitful doctrine, they’re tossed from one wave of chaos to another wave of confusion, drifting further and further from the truth.

But why?

Two reasons come to mind. (1) They aren’t truly saved or, (2) they aren’t studying God’s Word.

False Teachers Still Exist

In a culture driven by social media, we are more likely than ever to be presented with false teaching. In fact, the majority of the “bible teachers” on display at bookstores are spreading lies.

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed.

The Beauty of Marriage and Unity With Christ

The Beauty of Marriage and Unity With Christ

Walking down the aisle to meet my Groom is one of my most precious memories. It was the fruition of all the years of painful waiting. An event that displayed the Lord’s faithfulness to me.

All of the anticipation of what it would be like to experience oneness with this man I loved so deeply, would finally be realized.

As I took each step, I was fully aware of our God who had paved the way for us. Every foot forward, resembling each day of walking with the Lord until the day we see him face to face. He is paving the path to glorification where we will finally meet our Savior.

Earthly Wedding, Heavenly Joy

My wedding day was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. From my dashing groom to the cowboy boots on my feet, I had mapped out every detail. Though the flowers and dress were perfection in my opinion, they, along with all other tangible things, were not factors in the true beauty surrounding the day.…
