A Confident Heart~Week 1

Welcome to the first week of A Confident Heart Online Bible Study!  I am absolutely so excited that you are joining me. I love doing Bible study, but I especially love studying with other women.  Although we are a big group, we strive to keep it personal and intimate. You can be as interactive as you wish. This study is for you and it’s all up to you. You will get out of it, what you put into it. I promise to do my best to encourage you and support you along the way. And I expect you to do the same for me! :)   We are all in this group together!

Please feel free to leave comments, share thoughts, prayer requests, and how you are doing in your journey towards a confident heart.


Word of the Week:


Discovering new things can be both fun and a little scary.  This study is all about discovering how God’s promises can remove doubt and insecurity from our lives. It’s going to be so exciting!  Get ready to discover how amazing you are and how God intended for all of us to have confident hearts filled with His love.


Verse of the Week:

So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. Hebrews 10:35-36


Week 1 Suggested Assignments:


Sunday:  Get ready! Have your A Confident Heart book, Bible, journal or notebook, pen, highlighter, and anything else that you will need ready.  Pray for your heart and ask God to speak directly to you as you do this study. Pray for the other women all over world who are participating in this study.

Monday: Read the foreward and acknowledgments sections of the book. Write our verse of the week in your journal/notebook and on a few notecards so you can post them in various places. Begin reading this verse daily with the goal of memorizing it by the end of the week.

Introduce yourself to the group on my blog. In the comment section write your name, where you are from (if you are comfortable sharing that), and why you signed up for this Online Bible Study. Keep it simple and brief please :)  I can’t wait to meet all of you!

Tuesday:  Read Chapter 1, Discovering the Shadow of My Doubts.  Use your highlighter to mark in your book things you may want to look back on later.  Write in your journal your thoughts on the first chapter.  *Verse of the week~ Hebrews 10:35-36.  Work on memorizing it.

Wednesday:  Complete #1-3 of the Reflection and Discussion Questions on p. 27.  Record your answers in your notebook.  Visit Melissa’s blog for encouragement.   *Verse of the Week~ Can you say it with your eyes closed?  Give it a try!

Thursday:  Complete #4-7 of the Reflection and Discussion Questions on p. 27. Record your answers in your notebook.   Visit Melissa’s blog for sharing insight. *Verse of the Week~ Believe it!

Friday: It’s Vlog day!  Don’t know what a Vlog is? It’s a video message that I’ll post on my blog :)  So visit my blog today because I have a word or 2 for you!  Also use today as a catch up day. If you still need to read or answer any of the study questions, you can have today to do that. *Verse of the week~Say it!  If you’ve learned it, write it in the comment section of my blog. Learning God’s Word and hiding it in our hearts is one of the best ways to move towards that God-confidence we desire!

Saturday– I hope you have a fabulous weekend! What are you up to today?  As for me, I’ll be watching college football GO GAMECOCKS! and going to my daughter’s soccer game GO HAYLEY GRACE!  It’s gonna be a fun day :)  Hope yours is too!

Week 1~Error :(

I just posted Week 1 Assignments and in the process something went wrong. Nothing posted and I lost it all. Very discouraged, but I know God must be up to something very big for this to happen. Week 1 Assignments will not be posted until tomorrow morning around 10:00 am. I’m so sorry.  For now, just get your quiet time area set up, get your materials ready, and thank God for the awesome things He’s going to do in your life through this study!  Love y’all, Melissa <3
