I am not a doctor, none of the information on any of these pages pertaining to the Ketogenic Diet or Adrenal Fatigue should be considered medical advice and should not replace the care of your personal physician. I am simply eager to share the information I have learned while on my own journey to health. Before you embark on this journey, please consult with your physician.

If there ever was a time to open God’s Word and read it for yourself, now is the time.

One of the things that concerns me greatly about many Bible studies is that we spend more time reading the commentary of man about the Bible more than the Bible itself.

Can I let you in on a big secret?

The same Holy Spirit that speaks to the hearts of those who write Bible commentary and Bible studies can speak to you, too.

I am greatly concerned that in the church amongst believers there is a belief that we are unable to read and understand the Bible without someone speaking in our ear about what it means.

This is at epidemic proportions.

I can attest to the many, many emails I receive about this very thing.

One of the reasons why I love the Good Morning Girls’ Bible studies is that Courtney only writes her own wrap-up on Fridays.

I contribute my own thoughts on Wednesdays.

Apart from that, we trust that the Holy Spirit will speak to your hearts through His Word as you read one chapter a day through each book.

Study 2 Corinthians With Me

April 15, 2024 we will begin a study in 2 Corinthians.

In the book of 2nd Corinthians, Paul gives us three reasons for having written this letter.

1. He was planning to visit, and he wanted his visit to be joyful, not sorrowful. (2:3)

He wanted to deal sternly with them now, so that when he came to visit them, it would be a joyous occasion and not an occasion for discipline and correction.

2. He wanted them to know how much he loves them. (2:4)

“Faithful are the wounds of a friend.” Proverbs 27:6 A true friend will tell us the hard truth out of love and a sincere desire that we be all God has destined us to be.

In 1st Corinthians the church had to discipline a man who was sleeping with his step mother (1 Corinthians 5:1).

He had since repented, and now Paul was concerned that if they failed to forgive and restore him that this man would be “swallowed up with too much sorrow” (2:7).

3. He wanted to test their obedience (2:9)

Would the church be willing to forgive this man fully and restore him to fellowship, or would they allow Satan to take advantage of them?

This is a book of strong correction as well as further instruction for the believer in how we are to conduct our lives as believers living in a pagan culture.

Chuck Missler, in his audio commentary of Corinthians, calls it the book of “Californians” – because Corinth so resembles the culture we live in today.

Even more so now than when Pastor Missler preached through these two epistles.

The church has allowed paganism and immorality to seep in under the door.

Over 1/2 of mainline Protestants and 1/3 of evangelicals take the view that casual sex between consenting, but not romantically committed, adults is acceptable. Source

This is tragic.

When we consider all of what the Bible says about the role of sex in the life of a believer, that it is only to be engaged in within the bonds of the marriage covenant and that sexual immorality is a sin against the spirit, we must only conclude that God considers it a very serious sin.

Given this research, we must also conclude that either the church doesn’t fully grasp how serious God is about sexual immorality in the life of a believer or doesn’t care.

And neither of those speaks well of the church as a whole.

This could be a more appropriate time to dig into this instructive book and take to heart Paul’s admonition of the church.

To fully understand our role in this pagan culture.

That we truly be the salt and light God meant us to be in a world that is lost and confused and desperately in need of a Savior!

A Little More About Good Morning Girls and My Groups

Good Morning Girls is an online Bible study for women. Began by Courtney Joseph in her church, she took the Bible study to the Internet in 2009 and invited ladies all over America to join her in keeping each other accountable to their daily time with the Lord.

Little did she know that this Bible study would extend beyond the borders of America to literally every region of the world!!

In 2014 I joined Courtney, together with my dear friends Misty, Mandy and Bridget, in helping to lead Good Morning Girls. It has been an amazing journey as we’ve watched Good Morning Girls not only grow beyond what we could have dreamed or imagine, but we’ve had the amazing honor to see women’s lives changed by daily digging into God’s Word!

Good Morning Girls is a simple study – we simply read the Bible.

We believe that there is power in the Word of God and the Word of God alone can defeat the enemy. So we read one chapter a day 5 days a week. And we will continue this method until we’ve read through the entire Bible!!

All the materials are free and are available at Women Living Well!

In the summer of 2012 I opened the very first Good Morning Girls group in Croatia.

12 women, all members of my church.

I had no idea where it would lead. But by the following summer it exploded to cover the countries of Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia.
