Facebook it, Pin it, Instagram it, Tweet it Up!

If you love social media like we do, then we invite you to interact with us in the great big world of cyber space!  P31OBS can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and most recently Instagram. You can view all of these on your computer or smart phone. There is a free app on your phone for all of them as well.

Ginny Blankenship is our awesome Social Media Coordinator. She and her team work hard to make sure you can have the best experience possible on our Online Bible Studies social media sites.

On our OBS Facebook page you will find loads of inspiration, encouragement, pictures, verses, and fun that you can join in the conversation or share on your own personal Facebook page. Our community on Facebook is almost 25,000! The P31 OBS team and I are often found chatting it up on our Facebook page and would love for you to join us! We even have a few Facebook Parties during each study where you get the opportunity to “meet up” at a certain time and date and we spend an hour together sharing life! It’s sooooo fun!  Our Real Life Connections Group (Conference Call Gals) also meet up here during each call to share insight and thoughts as the call takes place. View our Facebook page here. Join community and “Like” us today!

OBS Twitter page


Our Twitter home page

At P31OBS, we LOVE Twitter and many of the ladies on our team have Twitter accounts. Twitter is not like Facebook. Where Facebook gives you the opportunity to post and share at length, Twitter is short and sweet. Each “tweet” (post) is only allowed to be 140 characters long. On Twitter, I connect with my friends at Proverbs 31 Ministries, OBS, my pastor and my church, my kids, and my interests such as news, sports, entertainment, and Christian teachers and speakers from around the world. (You know like Beth Moore, Lysa TerKeurst, and Andy Stanley.) View our Twitter profile page here. Follow us on Twitter today! You can also view my personal tweets in the left column of this blog in the Live Twitter Feed.



Pinterest @Proverbs31OBS, @melissartaylor

OBS Pinterest Page Our Pinterest home page


Pinterest is a one stop shop for ideas on EVERYTHING! And yes, I do mean everything. On our Pinterest page, we share beautifully designed scriptures from the study, quotes from the books we are studying, recipes, activities, and more. And we love it when you view our pins and  “pin it” to your own Pinterest page or share it on FB, Twitter, or Instagram. Visit our Pinterest page here. Follow us on Pinterest and begin pinning OBS today!


Instagram @P31OBS, @melissartaylor

OBS Instagram

Our Instagram home page

Instagram is all about pictures. Supposedly a picture speaks a thousand words. If so, Instagram is filled with stories of real hope for real life. I’ll be honest. When I first joined Instagram it was because of my kids. My kids are 20, 18, 16, and 12. They love Instagram and share snapshots of their lives there. Of course I joined, I didn’t want to be left out of family fun! Seriously though, Instagram is the “in thing” right now and if it’s important to you to stay current, then get an Instagram. For me it is important. I want to be able to connect with all generations. View our Instagram here. Follow us on Instagram today!

Thank you for the follow :)

I hope you’ve enjoyed our little social media tour today. If you happen to follow or like us on any of these, please let us know! Mention it in the comment section below and Facebook us, tweet us, pin us, or instagram us! If you do, you will be entered to win a What Happens When Women Say Yes to God book and a personal phone call from your OBS leaders for this study, me and Nicki Koziarz! Wow, we can connect off-line!

I know social media can be overwhelming for some, but if you have a healthy balance and love for connecting in other places, I hope you’ll join us! It’s the way us folks who don’t live in the same communities can bump into each other somewhere besides our home base. (Kind of like running into a co-worker at the grocery store! Which I’ve done and found very exciting! We hugged like we never see each other~haha!) Let us know

If you’d like to share your social media handles with us, feel free. (You don’t have to, but if you want some awesome OBS followers, then please share!

Post all comments in the comment section of my blog. Just click the word “comments” at the bottom of the post. If you receive this via email, do not reply to this to leave a comment.

*****Out of respect, please don’t follow my kids on any social media site. I wish I didn’t have to say this, but I’ve found it’s necessary. They don’t want all “mom’s friends” following and commenting on their stuff. Thanks!  <3

  10. Stephanie says:

    Having a Facebook page has gotten me into some really dicey situations and caused me to sin badly. I don’t have a Facebook page, or, rather, I deactivated it to avoid more temptations. Will these sites be the only way we can take advantage of the OBS? I feel like I will be penalized, and miss some of the teaching, because I do not use this type of communication.

    • Not at all. All of the study happens right here on the blog! You will not miss at on anything.

    • Stephanie-
      You can get everything sent to your email. I LOVE it! Daily devotions and the bible study daily emails always repeat the homework. If you sign up to get it sent to your email they P31 ladies take care of the rest! Enjoy and God bless!

  11. Fantastic!!! You gals think of everything! I’m on Facebook and Pinterest. I have Instagram but haven’t followed it. It might just be too much. No twitter for me either! Lol. Can’t wait for our next study. :o)

  12. I follow on FB & Pinterest. I don’t have Twitter or Instagram.

    • Kristy Aiken OBS Group Leader/ Prayer Warrior Blog Team Leader says:

      Yay…I love the spelling of your name:-)

  21. I don’t consider myself a very techy person, so when I signed up for my first study here a few studies ago, I was very nervous about the process. Joining has helped me to push past my discomfort with all this techy stuff and start getting involved and I am so thankful for that. FB was the only social media I was regularly using prior to OBS, but I was a late bloomer in that too, only having been on it a couple years. I share OBS stuff there all the time.

    I did already have a twitter account, but I still don’t use it. I don’t think I even know how to find and access the account I opened, lol! But I’ve been feeling that I want and need to start.

    OBS is the reason I started Pinterest. I always knew I would love it, and I absolutely do. It’s right up my alley and by far my favorite social media outlet! I pin OBS stuff there every chance I get!

    Been wanting to join instagram and see what all the craze is about. Plan to do that this study.

    I can be found on both FB and Pinterest by adding katwylie33 to the end of the main web addresses.

  39. I’m looking forward to this Bible study, particularly since my new church has had to postpone our studies due to summer interests, I suppose, of the other people who were attending. I’ve been looking for something to fill the void I’ve been feeling. I’m newly returned to Christ, and definitely need more Christian ed, if you will. Many thanks to your Crosswalk devotion this morning with the information!

    • Barbara Prince says:

      Hi Barbara, You will feel right at home on these OBS pretty quickly. As Melissa is always telling us “You’ll get out of it what you put into it.” I’m looking forward to talking with you. We have several Barbara’s for this study!
