  1. You got me all excited by your excitement. I love all the giving everyone does. And I have scary pictures right now from my junk room I have been working on – today is day 10!!!! So Stephanie’s doesn’t scare me too much :)

  2. Melissa..You are amazing…I can ‘hear’ the excitement’ in your writing and it gets me excited too. I love Veronica’s writings…she is so gifted. I really admire Stephanie. She always ‘puts herself out there’. She is so real. Can’t wait to visit her blog tomorrow.

    I am so excited for the next study…can’t wait!

    Congratulations to Jenny! I am jealous!

  3. christina g says:

    question??? do we have to do all of them to be entered in any of them? thats alot of blogs to read and comment… just wondering.

    • Christina,

      These are just opportunities for you. You can participate in one, all, or none of them. You get to pick and choose! I’m just sharing the love <3

  4. Congrats to Jenny!!! And kudos to Stephanie for being such a brave gal. praying we ALL don’t have to post before pictures! Scary! (Especially as I look over my living room and notice the half naked baby doll peeking out from under the couch, the cup from last night still on my end table, 3 pair of shoes scattered about and the top of my entertainment center that my hubby has turned into a paper breeding ground!) Can’t wait to start the study!

  5. Chargaile Askew says:

    Thank you Melissa for the heads up on these giveaways. I am still believing for a book for the upcoming study. Nothing like having faith that God will provide. BTW, I left a recommendation at Amazon for the MTC book. Have a blessed and safe holiday weekend.

  6. Michelle D says:

    Thanks for letting us know about the giveaways. This will be my second online study. I really appreciate the time and energy you put into these studies. You’re awesome!

  7. Arlene Gunter says:

    Thanks to all of you gals who put these studies together for us. I know there is a lot involved and want you to know that your efforts are truly appreciated.
    Looking forward to the new one, “I Used to be So Organized!”
    I used to be so organized, too! It’s funny what happens to our perfect surroundings when life happens!
    Thanks so much!

  8. Was really hoping to win, but I guess I’ll have to get my book & journal 😀 I want to get a really pretty one this time.

  9. Thank you for all you do! I am looking forward to another wonderful study with you!

  10. Angel Parnell says:

    I am so excited about this study. I have been set free from my past by studying God’s word with Wendy. I am gaining my confidence by studying with Renee. Now I’m looking forward to learning how God can help me get better organized so I have more time and energy for Him. With the things He is calling me to do, I am going to need it. Thank you Melisa for all you do with Proverbs 31. I have enjoyed the short time I have gotten to know you a tiny bit. I hope this study will allow us to get to know each other better.

  11. Mary Rose says:

    I love them all, but esp. the green and yellow jasper pendant and the carnalian.

  12. Christa Hutchins says:

    Congratulations to Jenny!
    This will be my first online study. I just finished up leading MTC at my church. I’ve cleaned up my eating and now I’m ready to clean up the rest of my mess!

  13. Sherry Smith says:

    Thank you for all you do. I am excited about this upcoming Bible study. I don’t have the opportunity to participate in one through my church, so I am thrilled that you are able to do this here.

  14. Wow! Thanks for sharing all the giveaways with us! You are such a wonderful woman to offer these conference calls. They are amazing. Thank you for all of your hard work.

  15. Hi Melissa,
    Thanks for all the opportunities to win. Also I want to say thank you for doing the on-line bible studies. I am looking forward to this next study.

  16. Juanita Flater says:

    I’m looking forward to the “I Used to Be So Organized”. Of course as hard
    as I try to be organized my feline friend helps to disorganize it in a flash. Maybe I’ll learn how to cope with disorganization through this study. I’m hoping to find some fresh ideas. Blessings, Juanita

  17. Hi! I need to know where to get more Gather and Grow information to possibly start a group. Your article in the proverbs 31 mag said to go to the website but I can’t find any reference to it? Help!

  18. Thank you for your time and commitment to your ministries. You are a blessing in my life!

  19. Michelle says:

    Melissa, thanks for offering these wonderful studies.
    I look forward to the `Organized` series.

    Congrats to Jenny on winning the giveaway!!

    Now I’m off to Veronica’s blog to try to win her giveaway :)

  20. JessicaA says:

    Recently moved and really looking forward to this study. I’ve been trying to fly through the flylady and could use all the organizational help I can get!!!

  21. Donna B says:

    Just sayin …. you ain’t getting a picture of my closet!!!

  22. Can’t wait for the new study…I am staying with my same group…thanks for organizing this!

  23. Colleen says:

    Thank you for your ministry! Looking forward to participating in my first line bible study! I hope I can win the book! How will we know if we win?

    • I believe each winner will be announced on the respective blogs – not sure but Melissa may post the winners here too, although not sure since each winner will be picked at different times. I suggest checking back to the blogs you posted a comment. I will post on my blog Tuesday morning the winner :)

  24. Karen K. H. says:

    Thank you so much for your ministry. This will be my third study I will be doing. I have been so busy with the end of the year things to do with my son. He is graduating middle school in two weeks. Today was the first time I could get to read the blog. Thank you again. I do love gettign closer to the Lord in the studies.

  25. Thanks a bunch

  26. Diana D says:

    I’ve signed up

  27. Melissa thank you for all of your hard work and enthusiasm during each of these studies! Congratulations Jenny! I am so excited to begin this study, but I will have to either win a book or go buy it this week before the study starts. I have procrastinated long enough. Time to crack the whip and begin the journey to get organized!

  28. Melissa, I’m looking forward to joining this 3rd online study with you. I truly appreciate your dedication and leadership with these online studies! May God bless you and each one on your online team for your many efforts to encourage spiritual growth in the lives of women.

  29. Kimberly Allison says:

    I am looking forward to learning practical tips that will help me organize my life enough to feel confident in my role as a mother to five boys and as a wife. Right now I am not able to keep up and it is frustrating on all fronts.

  30. Looking forward to seeing how God uses this in my life and others. Thanks for the study. God bless you!
