Do You Know Who I Am? Online Study - Week 1

Welcome and thanks for visiting! This week we begin our study of Angela Thomas' Do You Know Who I Am? and Other Brave Questions Women Ask

Below is the suggested reading schedule; keep in mind the beauty of an online study is flexibility. Feel free to work at your own pace. 

Have a wonderful week!
In Christ,
Laura

Week 1 – April 29—May 5

Monday—Read the Foreword and Introduction.

Tuesday/Wednesday—Read the first half of Chapter 1”Do You Know I Am Afraid to Dream Big?....He Is Worthy.” Visit my blog at www.laurarath.blogspot.com.

Thursday/Friday—Read the second half of Chapter 1.

Questions to Ponder
  • How does it make you feel to know that God already knows everything there is to know about you? (pg. 4)

  • How do you feel about this statement? (found on pg. 10)
“With this one lifetime, I am called to follow Jesus. No hesitation. No holding back. I am called to follow Him with everything my personality and mind can give to Him. To be a passionate woman who runs hard after god.”                

  • On page 13, there is a list of God’s gifts to us. Does one grab you more than the others? Do any surprise you?

  • What are your thoughts regarding the Parable of the Talents (pgs. 14-16)

  • Are you afraid to dream big? God is calling. Are you ready to follow?

    It's true - we won't get another shot at this life and this makes me want to consider how best to use my talents (and gifts of the Spirit) to serve the Lord. Each of us have been given talents and if we don't use them for the Lord, He will look for someone else to bless - who will use their talents faithfully.

    1. Oh Wendy, what a good point! God works His plan with us or despite us. What an honor and blessing that He calls us to help in His plan. (Not that He needs our help, He lets us help.)If we choose not to answer His call, we are the ones to miss out. His work will get done, but we'll miss the incredible blessing of being a part of it. I know I don't want to miss out! How about you?
