When Godly People Do Ungodly Things Online Bible Study Starts August 29, 2011

We’re leading three new online bible studies starting August 29, 2011 and one is called When Godly People Do Ungodly Things by Beth Moore. In order to participate in this 6-week bible study, you’ll need a copy of the workbook.  Christine Smith completed this as her very first bible study  several years ago, and is looking forward to leading the study here at the Womens Bible Cafe.

We’ll “meet”  once a week on Monday as we have an online discussion of When Godly People Do Ungodly Things. You’ll read your workbook at home five days a week, answer the workbook questions, and then join us on Monday’s to participate in a group discussion. There is no set time for the discussions, just show up and participate! We recommend you register for the Womens Bible Cafe by email so you’ll know when the discussion has started.

About the workbook When Godly People Do Ungodly Things (from Lifeway.com)

In this biblical guide to authentic repentance and restoration Beth examines why devoted followers of Jesus Christ can fall into the traps of Satan.Believers are still subject to Satan’s attacks. He is determined to disrupt the lives of Christians, destroy their ministry, and steal their joy. Sadly, those who have “fallen” may not recognize the devil’s schemes until they have already been caught in a snare of defeat. This six-week study is written in three parts. The first part is a warning to believers, while the second part shows women how to prepare for attacks by the Enemy. The third part is directed to those who have been snared by seduction, and compassionately points the way back to God.

  • Jessica Prosper says:

    Aloha! My name is Jessica Prosper and the best thing about the summer of 2011 was getting out of the ARMY! God had reminded me of my purpose and put it in my heart that I needed to run my house hold instead of running Soldiers. Now it’s me supporting my husband 100% (he is also in the army); getting my oldest ready for pre-school next year and the youngest off of the bottle. I am very grateful to have this opportunity in life to be a mother and to interact with sisters in Christ during nap time! Better to join now than never.

  • Carin says:

    I thought I signed up but I couldn’t find my post. I am a few weeks late but just finished Duty or Delight!

    Carin from Northern California (wine country). A regular here at the Cafe’.
    My favorite Summer memory was just this month. Spending a week at our lake house Labor Day week. We went boating all week with family & friends. It overwhelms me that we still own this vacation home. My husband had been out of work for a long time. We expected to lose this house as he had not received a paycheck for one year. God is amazing & very very good!! Just have faith!

  • roxann says:

    Hi, there.. I’m so excited and very late. I’m having troubles finding the first week of this study. I plan on catching up by next week. 🙂 God willing. I too I’m excited for Bible study online. I’m new at my church and have done some Bible studies there. But, always willing to try something new. Thankyou, for this chance. God Bless…..

  • Linda says:

    Linda – from Pennsylvania

    I was a little behind this week and finished up the last day’s study on Saturday (my day off). I had more time and I went out into the cool morning air to enjoy the sounds of the birds and the beginning of the beautiful day and to get a first hand view of God’s creation. It was a great way to start the day.

    The more I am into this Bible study the more I am enjoying it and the more I can that it is what I needed at this point in my walk. I can especially relate to the ‘pray without ceasing’. I know I need to be in a constant contact with God, but too often the busy day gets in the way. I feel the need to get closer to Him through prayer.

  • Heather says:

    Heather from Denver, Colorado! I am starting a few weeks late, but am so excited to find a good online Bible study group! Iam focusing more time on my family while working full time, so I am unable to participate in my church’s study this fall.
    My favorite summer memory was spending time with my family in the mountains and on a vacation to Wisconsin!

  • Elena says:

    Hi to all sisters in Christ and may the peace of our Lord be with you. I am Elena from Kent, United Kingdom. Found Beth Moore’s book while browsing in a second hand bookstore only some days ago. It took me like a storm from the first page, i am still reading it… My favourite memory from summer 2011 has to be the three days my girls and i spent exploring Jane Austen’s Hampshire, her house museum, her brothers estate – it was just wonderfull.

  • Dawn says:

    Hi I’m Dawn from Chicago Illinois. My favorite memory from Summer 2011 was spending a day at the zoo with my 6 year old nephew. It was great to be able to spend time with him and see the world from his perspective.

  • Lynn says:

    Hi! My name is Lynn, and I’m new to online Bible Study. It’s been several years since I’ve participated in a group Bible Study, and I’m excited (and hopeful) about it. I would like to make myself sound better than I am, but the truth is that I’ve drifted so far from the Lord that I’m afraid He’ll never take me back. I need help and a place to be candid (it’s hard to do that where people know me personally since they think I’m a super-Christian). I know the truth in my head about God’s love and forgiveness, but I feel as if I’ve crossed a line of no return, so here I am. I need Jesus, and I need to experience His truth and love!

    • Christine says:

      You can be authentic here….its one of the best things about the Bible Cafe!

    • Elena says:

      Praise the Lord, my dear sister in Christ, for you know the truth, as you say about God,s love and forgiveness, which means you are there. Knowing, means you have had to first learn, so two out of three stages have been succesfuly completed. All you raelly need to make yourself do know is put it into practise. How? By declaring out loud (whether you feel it yet or not): Lord, i have sinned, forgive me. Father I feel as if i ve crossed a line of no return, a line that separates me from your love and forgiveness. But Lord i know that this are only the scheems of the evil one, to make me stumble and fall. Lord, I know i went astray, but i also know and believe your word that you will leave the flock of sheep and go after the one whos lost, because your love is without measure. So, I am determined to not give in, but to stand firm in your name, with my eyes focused on the cross. Give me strength, open my heart, mind and soul to be receptive only of Your Word, My Lord Jesus.I prase and Thank you for Your Love, Mercy and Salvation. In Jesus Name. Amen.
      Only because we are Christians that doesnt make as saints nor perfects, we are just as human as anybody else, vulnerable, hurt, tempted even more, because the evil one doesnt like to see Gods plan for us being fulfield. The greatest difference and advantige we have is God-the one source of creation. Praise, honour and blessings be to Our Awsome God.
      Keep stong and may the Lord’s hand be over you. X

    FYI – I picked up the companion book, ” Arm Yourself Against The Enemy’s Schemes” and after reading just the introduciton, I think it’s worthwhile for anyone participating in this study. Just my opinion.

  • Mary Ann says:

    MaryAnn Maryland: My favorite moment from Summer 2011 was when I read, I Am Chosen – “For He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in His sight.” Eph. 1:4

    Never, in my lifetime, have I had a verse touch me so profoundly. To FINALLY get that HE chose ME first. I mean, I read it before…but this time, it finally penetrated this thick skull of mine. What a blessed moment that was for me. I praise Him for choosing me, every day!

  • Kim says:

    Hi I am Kim from Pennsylvania. Favorite summer memory is vacationing at Stone Harbor, NJ with my family. I am new to this bible study. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    • Christine says:

      Self-discipline is key to staying on track. Set a habit of reading daily, the morning seems to work best because if you wait till the end of the day, you may be too tired or distracted. Welcome Kim!

    Hi ladies! So excited to participate in this study. I look forward to receiving what He wants to reveal to me through this study as well as the fellowship with you.

    My favorite summer memory of 2011 was a much needed vacation to Key Largo. It was a gorgeous setting, very relaxing and I met many people. More than anything, God used that time and place to reveal countless things to me– and the revelations are STILL coming!!! It was a pivotal point in my walk. So much that I have begun writing (one of the revelations).

    Have a blessed week!

  • Tanya says:

    Tanya from Kingsport, TN …. we didn’t do a lot this summer but my husband and I cleaned out the garage, had a yard sale, and with the money purchased new bicycles….that’s going to become an ongoing memory as we found that we both enjoy it so much! 🙂

  • Laura says:

    Manhattan, IL – My favorite memory from Summer 2011 was celebrating my 50th birthday with friends and family with a surprise party given by my wonderful husband. My daughter and grandchildren were flown in from California as an extra suprise. Then on my actual birthday, I went skydiving for the first time with my other daughter!

  • Kelley Wolfe says:

    Love Beth Moore!

  • Jen Aspenson says:

    My favorite memory is the day I decided to go back to work for my family business. I had been questioning my career path for a long time, and I decided to accept a postion at our local hospital, something I have dreamed of since I was a kid. Turns out it wasn’t for me- and I am 100% positive that God wants me at my family business. Which is great because I am happy to be here! Satan got the best of me in the last bible study- so I’m giving this one a try. Please pray for me 🙂

  • Lakecia says:

  • Donna Race Aravanis says:

    I’m disappointed because I ordered my CD’s and workbook on Aug. 20th and they won’t be here until Tuesday by the end of the day. I’m really itching to get started. Didn’t know that my stuff was coming from TN by way of the slow boat from China. Guess I’ll just have to be very dedicated and catch up when I can. I need to be in God’s word now more than ever. I’m having a rough transition back to full-time work after being out 8 months on medical leave for breast cancer treatment.

  • Rhonda says:

    My name is Rhonda. I currently live in Indiana but hope to be relocated to South Carolina by winter. My favorite memory from this summer was taking my son to Isle of Palms. This was the first time he had seen the ocean. It was awesome.

    Debbie~ Hershey, PA…Best Summer 2011…..yesterday I celebrated a very important God-sent anniversary…maybe at some point during the study I will share….first online Beth Moore study, however completed many of her books through church.

    For any of you ladies out there needing a little encouragement…..YOU are here because GOD wants you to be…He has something He wants to share with you through this study and fellowship! I was at the bookstore yesterday and picked up the workbook twice and put it back down….didn’t think I had the emotional strength to face the difficult topic. Went back to the isle a third time….walked by, picked up the workbook and realized….I don’t have the strength….but GOD does and he will see me through!!

    Off to start reading!! See ya all tomorrow!!

  • Jackie35 says:

    Oops, I thought you wanted us to write down our favorite scripture for the summer of 2011! Hahahah

    Sorry. My favorite this summer is when I took my niece and nephew to Dorney Park on the last day of school June 28 here in NYC.

  • Jackie35 says:

    Hi, My name is Jackie and I am in NYC. I really need to get closer to God and I know he is calling me. I don’t know what my calling is and without reading his word daily, I won’t be able to fulfill my purpose in him. I attend church here in the city and I love it. We are a family after the heart of God. My studying habits are bad and I need help. I need discipline and structure. So, here I am…

    My favorite scriptures are (I think there are about 50 +) but since you want one: John 15: 4
    1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

  • joan jeffers says:

    My pastor invited me to a Pastors Conference at Lake Tahoe (Zephyr Point Conference Ctr). I am the volunteer Director of Christian Education for my church but was allowed to fill a space for one of the pastors who had a family emergency. In addition to an incredible venue and wonderful fellowship, I was able to attend all the sessions which were powerful. A wonderful presentation by Dewitt Jones asking us to “Cebrate what is right in the world”. Then incredible Jazz Praise music by Jim Martinez and his accompianists and a lakeside campfire night. BUT, the best memory was a very unique and moving Communion by Intinction. What a blessing!

  • Vivian says:

    I forgot to tell where I’m from, SC, and a litte about myself. Married with 3 children. I’m a minister at my local church. I enjoy preaching, teaching and learning God’s word. I’m in school full time at Lee University, taking 4 clsses this semester. I have a prison ministry and my life is very busy, and I hope I am able to keep up. I have attended a women’s Bible study at my cousin’s church, a study of David’s life, with Beth Moore, Kay Arthur, and Priscilla Shirer, I enjoyed the fellowship,learning and discussing God’s word. I look forward to the same with this study.

  • Vivian says:

    Hi, I’m a new comer, it’s great to be joining the group. My favorite memory this summer is, when we had my mom a surprise 78th birthday dinner w/ almost 200 people in attendance. and my husband and I went to Orlando for vacation, we visited the Holy Land Experience, it was amazing, we were able to have communion with Jesus.

  • Nellie says:

    My name is Nellie and I am from Deltona, Fl. I have read several Beth Moore books, but this will be my first bible study of hers. My favorite memory of the summer of 2011 would have to be going away with my hubby to celebrate 27 years of marriage!

  • Gina says:

    Gina, Greenville, SC; fave moment from summer was enjoying the magic of the Magic Kingdom w my children for (their) first time! My five yr old told me it was the best time he has ever had! It was, despite the rain and heat, the most amazing family vacation. We laughed, stayed up late, ate fancy dinners, watched fireworks and made memories…

  • Ashley says:

    My name is Ashley, I’m from a small town in NW Ohio. This is my first online bible study and I can’t wait to start! My favorite memory of this summer was getting married, then recently finding out that we’re expecting 🙂

    • Sally says:

      Hey Ashley, Where in NW Ohio???? I am originally from there. My sister and brother in law live in Wauseon. I am from Napoleon. I was just there at the end of June!!!! Small world!! God bless, Sally

      • Ashley says:

        I’m sorry, I just saw your comment! Ive been to Wauseon a few times and I know where Napoleon is. I grew up in Van Wert and just moved to Delphos – have you heard of either? It is a small world!

  • Alisha Christine says:

    Hello!
    This will be my first bible study online. I am teaching preschool this year and cant participate on the morning bible study, so I found you! I hope that I can keep up!

    My favorite thing about this summer was going to Jekyll island with my 1 and 5 year old and husband. We had an amazing, much needed ,relaxing time!

    • Donna says:

      Hi Alisha,
      This is my first on-line bible study too and I also teach pre-school. I love Beth Moore’s study’s and I’m looking forward to getting in to the word to keep me focused on God and to help me handle the stress of being full time teacher, mother and wife. God has given me many blessings to manage this Fall!

  • Jennifer D says:

    Jennifer D, San Antonio, Going to the see a part of state I live and taking time to relax.

  • renate says:

    My favorite summer memory was the summer evenings (before it became too hot…) that my husband and I sat with friends on our rooftop deck, sharing food and laughter and enjoying the new pergola that we had built together. And am looking forward to more as the autumn cools things down a bit….

  • Leslie Henderson says:

    Atlanta, GA. Favorite memory would have to be hiking trip to Salida in early August. God’s creations are magnificent!

  • Sally Orwig says:

    Oh sorry I am from the Tampa Bay area of Florida. Hurricane central. But so far this year no hurricanes. Praise the Lord!!

    • Sheree says:

      Hi Sally….I absolutely love Tampa Bay. My sister lived there for many years and I loved going to visit her every summer. They just recently moved to Boynton Beach about a year ago due to her husband changing jobs. I’ve been there only once…it’s a very nice area, but Tampa Bay was my favorite. I would love to move there one day.

      • Sally says:

        Hi Sherre, it is really warm here right now. But Irene is bypassing the state of Florida. You have an open invitation at anytime to come on down. I have a one bedroom apt. But it is a very quiet apt complex. Oh and my book is going to be here tomorrow(Thursday) I am excited. Was worried it would not get here on time. But it is going to be here. I love Beth Moore.

        • Sheree says:

          Hi Sally…Awwww…that’s so sweet. Thanks for the invite. I bet your apt. is very cozy. I’m also glad Irene is bypassing Florida. And it looks like it is going to bypass the state of SC too, where I’m from so we are very excited about that. The Charleston coast was devastated when Hugo came through several years ago, so we do not want a repeat of that. But it appears it’s going to hit our neighbor NC and all the way up the coast even to NY. Let’s pray that it turns and heads back out to the ocean. You never know with a hurricane…they are so unpredictable. I have done almost every Beth Moore study she’s written, and this is my second go round with “When Godly People Do Ungodly Things” which is an awesome study. I’m looking forward to her James study coming out in Nov. I’m sure Christine will introduce that one in the Bible Cafe 🙂

          • Christine says:

            We are going to do the James study when it comes out. Looking forward to it!

    hmmm favorite memory from this summer? It would have to be visiting my Sister and my brother in law and my nieces, in Ohio and getting tomeet my newest Great nephew for the first time. He is such a cutie. He saw me one day and I started to laugh, and he thought I was soo funny. He just started to giggle at me.

    The best part of summer for me was to be able to be with my daughter before, during, and after her surgery. She is 27 and had her tonsils and adnoids taken out. Recovery was rough with her, but with much prayer and love, she made it through. Praise God, she can now smell and taste for the first time in years!

  • Kirsti Carter says:

    Hi, my name is Kirsti, I’m from Sherman, Illinois!! My favorite 2011 summer memory is when I met up with my kids in Nashville. They had been in Florida for 10 days prior to this with their grandparents. I’d never been away from them that long and it just hurt so much. I couldn’t stop hugging them when they finally showed up. I love my kids so much, but it’s true, absence DOES make the heart grow fonder!!!

    Sheree from Lexington, SC….. this was the first adult Bible study I led in my home with 12 precious ladies a couple of years ago. I look forward to going through the study again with y’all online. It is an awesome study and I highly recommend every Christian go through this Bible study. My favorite memory from Summer 2011 was also our July 4 celebration at my parents house…bbq ribs on the grill, sounds of my grandchildren playing in the pool and singing karaoke songs. And my sister was here from Florida which made it extra special because we don’t get to see her that often. We had so much fun that we didn’t even notice the heat wave we were having…soooo hot here in SC and today is actually going to be 109 degrees with the heat index….now Lord you can bring on fall any time…we are ready!! See y’all online. Have a wonderful week 🙂

  • Denise Evans says:

    ~~~~Summer 2011~~~~
    My Father showed me how His promises are true, and how to teach others the same.
    I was cured of Liver disease, and ended a 465 day long battle on Interferon treatment. I like to call that my wilderness experience with God, my Father, holding me so close the whole way. His strength was made perfect in my weakness. I was NEVER stronger or more confident in who I am in Christ. I was intimate with my helper, the Holy Spirit. I learned Contentment. Thank You Jesus, Amen
