OBS & Social Media, News You Can Use~

As I read through the comments on yesterday’s blog post, I was thrilled by the number of women who said this was their very first Online Bible Study. Even more exciting, many said this was their very first Bible study ever.

Welcome to Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies!!! We are honored that you would select this study to be your first. I take that very seriously. And my OBS team and I want to make sure you have the best experience ever.

What I love most about these studies is the fact that they are so flexible and anyone can participate. I also love that they are welcoming and non-intimidating. If you are here, we are so excited about that. We love you already! And most of all, I love that the women who have participated have experienced real hope for real life. That’s what you get here. Hope that is applicable and you can trust it because it’s from God. No matter what is in your past or where you are today, you have a place here. Thank you for trusting us to walk with you in faith.

All this week, I’ll be highlighting a different aspect of OBS. This is so you will be informed.

Today:  Social Media

We LOVE Social Media!!!! Social media provides us with more ways we can communicate with you. I realize that not everyone utilizes all the social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest and that’s ok. The Bible study will take place here on my blog. Social media sites just provide more options if you care to use them.

  • Facebook Small Groups~  Are you on Facebook?  Do you have an interest in joining a group off 12-15 women who are doing this online study also? Facebook small groups are designed for ladies who want a smaller environment and more personal connections to do this study. Each group has a leader. These groups develop friendship and experience community while discussing the study.  You must be on Facebook to join a Facebook small group. Lisa Kramp is the Leader and Small Group Coordinator for OBS. To join a group, send Lisa a friend request or a FB message. These groups are filled on a first come first serve basis. There will be a waiting list if needed.
  • Online Bible Studies Facebook Page~ If you are on Facebook, visit this page and like it right now! You will be so glad you did! Our Online Bible Studies Facebook page is encouraging, informative, interactive and fun! Check it out today and connect with us!
  • Online Bible Studies on Twitter~ If you are on Twitter, follow us on Twitter! @MTBibleStudies is another way to interact and connect in a fun way. I’d also like to invite you to follow me too. I love to “tweet” and I’d love you to connect with you!
  • Pinterest~ This is the latest social media craze and we LOVE it! We are so blessed to have Veronica Herzing as our pin creator and wow does she ever do a fabulous job! Veronica creates pins for each chapter and reflection Bible verse we use for each study. You can share these pins and use them for your own inspiration. Follow us on Pinterest and experience the beautiful creations by our very own sweet Veronica <3

I look forward to seeing many of you on these optional sites as we go through our study!

It’s not too late to invite your friends to join us! Spread the word about OBS. We begin this Sunday, February 3rd.

You can order your book from Proverbs 31 Ministries here.

You can read Chapter 1 of Let. It. Go. here. (Whether you are waiting on your book or you just want to check it out and decide if this book is for you.)

You can sign up to participate in this Online Bible Study in the top right corner of my blog. (If you haven’t signed up, please do so. I will be emailing important information to those who sign up.)

  4. I’ve been doing your OBS for probably 2 or 3 years and I love it! I don’t do them all because a year ago I was inspired & encouraged to start a women’s Bible study at my church! It’s difficult to do 2 studies at once, though I am often tempted to <3. I am on Facebook and, now that I have finally joined the 21st Century with an iPhone, I am going to open a Twitter. Can't wait to follow you!! You and all the ladies at Proverbs 31, inpsire me daily! Thank you for folloiwng the path God has laid out for you, as it gives me hope that I can too!

    This is going to be my second online Bible study and I love them. I can do them at home and that really helps. Sometimes it’s difficult with work, family and church to fit a Bible study in. But, with this I can find the time to fit this in around everything else. My social media is facebook and pintrest. Thank you for your online Bible studies.

  13. I am using the online Bible Study. I have liked you on Facebook and in my inbox. I am hearing impaired and hope to be able ot participate at some level. If nothing else just reading along.

  14. I just recently signed up to be a part of the facebook group. I just read the first chapter and am so excited – and in desperate need of help from the Lord! I can’t wait to continue reading!
    Blessings!

  26. I’m very excited about the online study of Let It Go. I’m a member of the social network society of Facebook. I use the social network to share my faith and study the word of God. I also stay connected with family and friends through Facebook. I would love to join one of the small study groups on Facebook. My daily devotional is one of the most peaceful times in my busy day. Let us together share our faith with others by using the gifts and talents that God blesses us with each day.
