Jesus is the only thing in this life that can truly satisfy. He is the only thing that can fill our cups up to overflowing. So learning how to get Jesus into our life everyday is crucial.
This area of the website is dedicated to equip you to do just that! Through Girls In God’s Word Bible Study you will get the following tools:

Bible Study Reading Plans
Darcy and Trudie have been creating reading plans for over five years via Girls In God’s Word and then Hello Jesus Co. These reading plans are the CORE resource we use here. They cover many different topics, books of the Bible, and people. When you follow one of our reading plans you have about 5-10 verses/day to read. Then there is one verse to TAP. The reading plans are designed for a five day a week study.
What is TAP? Good question!
TAP is a simple journaling method for studying the Bible. It’s an acronym —
T= Truth: simply write the verse.
A= Application/Action: write anything you learned from the verse, or an action you can take to put the Word into action.
P= Prayer: write a prayer. It can be things on your heart or about what you learned. Be sure to include a thank you for the Words you read. 😉
Getting access to the free reading plans is simple — Just join the Subscriber list! Each time we start a new study we will send you the reading plan for free! In addition, each Monday during the study we will send you that week’s reading and a little introduction to get you started on the week!

The InDepth Studies include the reading plans, the TAP version, but then they add another level. We include a short devotional on the topic of the reading for the day and several thought-provoking questions.
The InDepth Studies will be found in the store a few weeks before each new study begins. You will be able to purchase a downloadable file to print out yourself at home or to use on a digital reader, or you can purchase a physical copy of the InDepth study on Amazon.

Community is important, especially one built around a common goal of filling up on Jesus! The reading plans and InDepth Studies are designed to be used inside community in two ways:
- Small groups: typically this is you asking around and getting 3-4 friends to study with you. Each weekday one person from the group takes a turn sharing what she learned during her quiet time that morning. Since the studies are designed for a five day week a group of 5 friends is the perfect number! Email, texting group, or WhatsApp all are great ways to do this communication.
- Girls In God’s Word Study group: Currently this group “meets” through the GroupMe app. It’s a group of random gals from all over the country that chat about the studies. No one has set days, everyone just adds thoughts as they have them. Elizabeth (Liz) is the group leader. She is awesome at community and mentoring. Let us know you want to join the group HERE:

AUTHOR OF JESUS IN GENESIS
I live with my husband of 24 years in the tiny town of Sardis, Ohio, in the middle of the sticks (and I mean the sticks!), but this is where Jesus found me, and I found Jesus, and He is the love of my life. I am so overwhelmed with emotion as I learn about Him in the Word of God! I learn something amazing every time I read it, and I love to share what I learn about Him with you! It’s not just about learning, it’s about believing every word, and knowing it applies to each one of us! There is a great adventure in following Him, and it is one I will never regret.
