FAQ: How do I participate in this study?
It’s simple. If you haven’t done so already, download a copy of the FREE Bible study guide. You’ll find the download further down this page.
On Mondays I’ll have new printables for you (see links below) right here on the blog. Friday is a recap of the week, and my thoughts on the study. During the week, you’ll study at home, following the outline of the study guide. You can study alone or with a group of friends–well suited for either. In addition to my posts here, you can find me on Facebook. I’ll post my journal entries and share my thoughts. I’ll also open up the discussion for you to share your thoughts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the series. Here is a link to my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/timewarpwife Note: This study is FREE, but there is an optional addition for anyone who wishes to purchase a journal instead of downloading one. In addition to the questions, the journal is beautifully arranged along with images to color, space to record your thoughts, and tidbits of information to help you dig deeper. The link for the journal is at the bottom of this post or you can go straight to Amazon to find it. Click here.

You do not need anything else for this study other than a Bible and a pen!
In addition to the study guide, I’ve created a journal (available now at Amazon) for the study, that’s unlike any other journal out there. This one is a Bible-study/journal combination that’s jam packed with information. In it you’ll find everything you need to complete the study. I provide insight, encouragement, thought-provoking questions, cross references, and more… FAQ: What’s the difference between the journal and the FREE study guide? The journal is not only beautifully designed, it also has everything in one place so that you don’t have to download and print the questions, the weekly coloring pages, and worksheets. It also has a little background information here and there such as interesting tidbits from history. It’s designed to be a keepsake in which you can journal, and then tuck away for future reference. It’s ideal for group study, because members can take their booklets home, answer the questions, color in the pages if they like, and bring them back each week to share their thoughts. The journal is available now on Amazon. I’ve also provided some sample pages below so you can take a peek inside.

Esther: In-Depth Bible Study Journal – Now Available
WHY READERS ARE BUYING IT:
“Not only is this a companion study to the Bible but it’s a beautiful coloring book too. Lots of little tidbits about the book of Esther and the customs of the time are sprinkled throughout the book. The journal asks many questions to get you thinking and leaves plenty of room to write out your answers.” – Donna M. Trull (Amazon Review)
Come back on March 20th when we’ll begin this study together!
