5 Important Things, HJ

Hello HJ Ladies! (Hidden Joy Ladies),

Aren’t you getting excited? I know I am! I can hardly wait to get this Bible Study started! (singing the Black-Eye Peas here…Let’s Get It Started….)

A few IMPORTANT items I’d like to discuss with you that could impact your experience while doing this study.

  1. Interaction. Ladies, don’t just sit through this study, get involved! Remember, we are a group. Use my blog,, to interact with others on. Comment, respond to the comments of other group members. Share your celebrations, prayer requests, frustrations, meaningful verses, etc as we go along. I promise the more you are involved, the more you will get in return! I hope to see you participating A LOT!
  2. Conference Calls. While these are optional, if you ask anyone who has done them before, they are so worth it. The people you meet on the calls (our special guests) are hand picked because of their story/life and their willingness to share openly and honestly with you. Check out the line up,, it is top notch. There is no way to cover everything in a written blog, so these calls really allow us to engage in our study and go a little further, even allowing time for question and answer at the end. You will be challenged with an extra message on each call and you will be prayed for on each call. We pour our hearts into these calls to assure that you receive excellence. If you are not completely satisfied, we will gladly refund your money. If you can’t be on the call live, they are recorded so you can call and listen later or download it to your computer. Call our office and we’ll be happy get you signed up for these calls. 877-731-4663 The cost for all four calls is $15.
  3. Believe. We are claiming Isaiah 43:19 and believing that God is beginning a new thing in us. Start there and be open to what God can do in your life. Pray against doubt. Think of this study as your new beginning, your first step to hope, healing, and freedom. You deserve it and you are definitely WORTH IT. You will never hear me say this will be easy. You will continually hear me say to not give up and that God loves you more than you could know. You are not what you’ve done. You are not what has been done to you. You are a child of God who deserves a life lived fully. Jesus came so you could have that life. (John 10:10) Don’t be robbed of that anymore.
  4. If you don’t have your book yet…DON’T FRET! It’s okay. We are taking this study at a slower pace. Each post will remain online so you can view it whenever is convenient for you. Catch up will be easy if you fall behind. We received a new shipment of books today, which Wendy is signing tomorrow, and then we will send them out. We will keep ordering as many as we need.
  5. Make sure you sign up (if you haven’t already) for the study on my blog in the right side bar under the words “Bible Study Sign Up.” The sign up for the study is different than signing up to receive my blog posts. When you sign up for the study, you should enter your name and email. Then you will receive an email in return from me. At the bottom of that email is a confirmation link. Make sure you click on that link to receive email updates about the the study.

We get started this Sunday! Until then I am praying for all of you daily as you prepare to study God’s Word through Hidden Joy in a Dark Corner.

Thank you so much for doing this online study with me. I look forward with great anticipation all that God will accomplish in our lives. I vision the chains dropping off as we walk ahead in freedom.

My love and prayers to each of you,

If you’ve read this far, you are IN LUCK!!!  Leave a comment today telling us how you want to be a part of this study or how you are suggesting this study to a friend and you will be entered to win a book!  Giving away 3 books today!  Winners announced at 11:00 pm EST Wednesday night!  Yay!  So excited!

    I’m so thankful to Him for leading me to this online study. It’s funny how when I saw it advertised on my homepage, Crosswalk, I read about it and, with no hesitation at all, signed up. I just KNEW it was what I was supposed to do. I just felt in my spirit that this was going to be, finally, a place of healing, a place of, for the 1st time in my life, being made whole. A place where I could finally feel that I mattered and that the people who caused me to think that I was nothing were wrong. I am at the same time excited and frightened to start this journey that I know will lead me out of my comfort zones, even if those comfort zones are not comforting or good…..

      I know exactly how you are feeling, I felt drawn to it immediately and so excited for it but it wasn’t until today that I felt nervous! And I too need to learn that those who hurt me — it was their issue, had nothing to do with me being a nothing but more about them being a nothing with no sense of right or wrong, following the evil and not turning towards the LORD. I am still important and I still have worth :)

      Glad you will be making this journey with me!

    I am very excited about this study, I have also told one of my close friends about it; she is struggling and I think would benefit from this study just as much if not more than me!!! Thank you for providing this study and this safe place!!!

    Thank you for taking this journey with me Veronica. It’s good not to feel so alone in the things I struggle with. The world and even my brothers and sisters in Christ lok at me & think I have it all together……
