Hello and Happy Monday from Charlotte, NC, USA! Thanks for joining me in the Unglued Online Bible Study! We are just getting started and I’m so happy you are joining me.
If you missed yesterday’s post containing our Week 1 Assignments, you can see them all here.
This is your assignment for today.
Read Chapter 1, An Invitation to Imperfect Progress. Use a highlighter to highlight parts you want to remember or come back and read later. Make notes in your notebook of key Scripture (like the Memory Verse) and important things to remember from Chapter 1.
Look up our first Memory Verse in your Bible. Highlight it. Write it in your notebook or on some notecards. Practice it and ask God how you can apply it personally to your life. (If you can’t see the picture, visit my blog by clicking here.)
“…let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1b

An Amazing Woman and a Give-Away (3 give-aways!)
Here’s a chance for you to win 1 of 3 Conference Call Series Give-Aways and I also want you to meet our special guest of the week, Deborah Smith Pegues, author of 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue and 30 Days to Taming Your Emotions.
Bestselling author and international speaker, Deborah Smith Pegues, delivers sage advice on relational, financial, and emotional freedom for secular and religious audiences around the world. She is a high-energy, inspiring motivator, effectively incorporating humor and hard-hitting directness into her presentations to her never-bored listeners. Deborah has the unique ability to address readers across all social, racial, and economic strata.
A prolific writer, her most popular book, 30 Days to Taming the Tongue, challenges readers to embark upon 30 days of verbal abstinence from 30 negative uses of the tongue including complaining, gossiping, lying, retaliating, etc. (I have personally read this book and can honestly say it helped my life and especially my marriage tremendously. I really thought about the words that came out of my mouth! Love it! This book is a Proverbs 31 Ministries Best Seller.)
Her newest book, 30 Days to Taming Your Emotions, challenges readers as well to take a good look at how they react emotionally. This book is a consolidation of 30 Days to Taming Your Stress, 30 Days to a Great Attitude, and Supreme Confidence (condensed version). Thus, it contains 90 practical tips that will help you discover the calm, confident, caring you—all in one volume.
If you order from Deborah’s website, she will personally autograph your book!!!! Wow! Check out all of her books and order information here: http://www.confrontingissues.com/products.php.
Deborah is my first guest in our Unglued Conference Call Series this week. This is an optional part of our study, but it truly is worth your time if you are looking to connect in a different way and get some valuable insight and perspective on the Unglued principles. These calls will challenge you and give you application you can implement immediately. To order the conference calls, click here. I am super honored to have Deborah join us on our first call! Our first call is Wednesday, September 26th at 8 pm EST.
