Get Ready!

Hey HJ Gals!

How are you doing? With the start date quickly approaching, I hope you are as ready as I am to get this party started!!! Are you? We have more signed up for this online study than any study we’ve done so far! We have surpassed the 2500 mark! How huge! How epic! We have a group with over 2500 women who are ready for change, ready to live life to the fullest! And it is possible!

I’m going to repeat some information here, but since we have so many that have recently signed up and not received an email before, I feel like I need to. Plus there are some of you who need to hear it again, because according to your emails you didn’t get it the first time (not mentioning any names…) haha, I hope you know I’m joking!
Seriously, this may be your last email before the study begins, so read carefully. I’m going to try to answer many of the questions I’ve received right now!

If you still want to sign up or know someone who wants to sign up for the study or the Conference Call Series, it’s not too late. Go ahead and sign up, order a book, and get in on the empowering conference calls. Information can be found here: http://melissataylor.org/and-more/

If you haven’t received your book yet, don’t worry! Yes, we are beginning this Sunday, but we are moving at a slow pace. You will be able to catch up. I’ll begin posting about the study on Sunday, May 29th, but the posts will always be online for you to access. Personally, I think as long as you have your book by the 3rd week in June, you could easily catch up. Keep checking my blog, http://melissataylor.org/ .

Stephanie Clayton is a licensed counselor who will be featured on 2 of our conference calls and present on all 4. She has been praying for you. She is dedicated to you. She cares and has a heart of gold! She is also giving away 5 books on her blog!!!! For a chance to win, visit http://myloveletter2god.blogspot.com/2011/05/twenty-five-hundred.html and leave a comment! She will announce the winners next Tuesday, Wendy Blight will sign the books next Wednesday, and the Proverbs 31 Office will mail them out Wednesday afternoon! Don’t miss this opportunity to possibly win and more importantly get to know Stephanie. She has quickly become one of my favorite people in the world! And we are so blessed to have her in this study! Even if you don’t need to win a book, still go read her post. Such a blessing.

Many of you have asked about the schedule. Specific assignments will be posted each Sunday, but here is our timeline:
Week 1- Chapter 1 (begin May 29)
Week 2- Chapter 2 (begin June 5)
Week 3- Chapter 3, Conf Call 1 (begin June 12)
Week 4- Chapter 4 (begin June 19)
Week 5- Chapter 5, Conf Call 2 (begin June 26)
Week 6- Chapter 6 (begin July 3)
Week 7- Chapter 7, Conf Call 3 (begin July 10)
Week 8- Chapter 8 (begin July 17)….She Speaks Conference Meet Up, Concord, NC
Week 9- Chapters 9-10 (begin July 24)
Week 10- Chapter 11, Conf Call 4 (begin July 31)

There are many praying for you. Praying that Isaiah 43:19 is becoming real to you and that you are believing that God is doing a new thing in you. Earlier in this same chapter, He says, “Fear not, I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” Try to grasp that. It is time to kiss fear good-bye. He knows your name and calls you. Answer Him! We have to begin by CHOOSING (we may not feel it, but it’s a choice…CHOOSE IT) to believe God has great Isaiah 43:19 and 43:1b plans for us. It’s our time. Time to move ahead with hope. Please join me in taking the responsibility to pray for other group members and to pray for yourself. We are a group, brought together by divine appointment. It’s no accident. I’m glad we are in this together. It makes me feel better to not be in this alone. I’m honored to have you join me.

If you have any questions, email MelissaTaylorQuestions@gmail.com. Either Angie or I will get back in touch with you.

Much Love to this awesome Bible study group!!!! I love you and can’t wait to get started! Check my blog Sunday, May 29th for Week 1 Assignments!

Blessings,
Melissa

  1. Reading this just made me more excited about starting this bible study!
    I can’t wait to talk with other women and see all of our lives transformed by God.
    Thank you so much for doing this bible study :)

  2. Michele Caséca says:

    I go after you Pamela… Melissa, thank you so much for doing this Bible Study!

    It’s gonna be an amazing journey for each one of us!
    My prayer for this beautiful group of ladies (+2500, wow!), is that we may let the Spirit of God do His work in our lives.

    Melissa, can I pray for us, so we can be prepared for the “party”?

    Father God, thank you, thank you for bringing each woman to this study. We even thank You God for the ones who haven’t signed up yet. But You know them! You know each one of us by name!
    Thank You for Your presence in this on-line Bible Study. It really amazes us how far we can go and how high we can reach when we commit to You our plans.
    Before Melissa had this plan, You had planned first. Thank You for not giving up on us, but for always run after us, trying to bring us closer to You, trying to make us whole again!
    We want to be called women after Your heart. So please dear Lord, prepare our hearts so we can get started! Prepare our souls, so we can learn the TRUTHS You are about to reveal to each beautiful woman here!
    We pray at the end of this study, we can share our victories, our blessings, our amazing stories of redemption, freedom and SALVATION.

    YES, dear Lord, let us remember that without salvation, healing is impossible. Only through Jesus You will reach our lives, and get Your work done.
    Through Jesus, all thing are possible. Through Jesus, we’ll see peace, hope, comfort, healing, freedom and redemption pour out from our lives!
    Don’t let the enemy keep making us believe in his lies. We want to believe in your Truths!
    Father God, we ask you in Jesus’ Name to let this Bible Study impact our lives, and turn all the dark corners into AISLES JOY! Amen!

    Before I finish, I want to share a verse God moved me to post here:

    “Therefore, I urge you sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his GOOD, PLEASING and PERFECT will.” (Romans 12:1-2)

    I love you, beautiful women of God.

        I saw that thanks I just got to busy yesterday to respond I appreciate you for commenting back and all of girls will get thru this together.

  6. I guess I am getting in under the wire, I kept seeing the study on my fb page and email…and longed to do it, but the finances are tight. Today I went ahead and purchased the book and conference calls. Please pray that God will provide. I definitely need this study due to past traumas all my 38 years on this earth. I felt a peace about it as I signed up. Kinda scared, but I know that if this is God’s will, He will make sure the family is fed and the 35 dollars replaced. Thank you.

    • Michele Caséca says:

      Hello Vikki,

      I left you a comment on the previous post. I really pray you can find the comfort you need, and don’t feel alone anymore!
      I’m also praying the $35 you spent with the materials you needed for the Bible Study can be replaced! God will honor your faithfulness.
      Now that you have the tools, go for it! Use this Bible Study to find the hope, joy and peace you need, through Jesus Christ!

      Sweet Blessings,

      Michele Caséca

  7. Thank you, Michele. It’s just what I needed to read today. :)

  8. Kristi Deitrick says:

    The questions at the end of Chapter 1 are enlightening to say the least. I realized I had a big hurt that I had been carrying with me for over 2 years. It isn’t abuse, it was just a verbal attack on my very existence and character by an in law. We had been very close and it came out of nowhere. Question No. 1 got me – had I tried to resolve the problem on my own and not go to God with it. YES. I had spent 2 years believing the lies of the enemy spoken through this in law and not even considered the promises of the Bible might be true for me as they are for everyone else. Why is it so hard to accept the good things God has to offer and so easy to take up the bad things? So, today, when I have a moment alone, I’m truly giving this situation to God and I’m not going to act on it in anyway until I get an answer from Him. My way has not been working, afterall. I know this isn’t a horrible thing like Wendy experienced but it is what I’m relating to with this study. Thanks to Melissa for leading this study and thanks to the 3000 women who have decided to take this step together. Praise God! Love, Kristi
