01—Intro Week START HERE!

Welcome to Sweeter than Chocolate!® Psalm 119

It's finally time to kick off our summer study of Psalm 119! I'm going to do everything I can to make your experience here as easy as possible from a technology standpoint, so all you'll have to focus on is enjoying God's sweet Word! I'm working on making that as easy as possible, too. So watch for short videos that focus on tips for inductive study and flat out encouragement along the way!

Today, I'd like you to do a couple of simple things on the blog.

First, write a sentence or two about yourself. What's your name? Where are you from? Why did you decide to study Psalm 119 this summer?

Second, make a simple comment on someone else's post. For example, let someone know that you're from the same state (if you are!) or tell someone you're glad that they're here. Maybe you'll let someone know that this is your first online study, too. Make sense? Basically, we're practicing the skill of talking to each other online. 

That's it for today. 

Remember, if you haven't ordered your book, you'll want to get that soon so you can get started on Lesson 1. 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Blessings,

pam :)

Pregame Session#2 — What is Inductive Study?

Using the Bible to Study the Bible

It may seem obvious, but apparently it's not. Using the Bible as the primary source in studying the Bible is not as common as you might think. Often instead of reading and studying God's Word directly we get our biblical "knowledge" from secondary sources like commentaries, tradition, and other well-meaning people. Inductive study will help you discover truth for yourself! 

I'd love for you to weigh in on the blog today and respond to the appropriate question for you:

If you've learned through inductive Bible study in the past, tell us how God has impacted your life through it.

If inductive study has been hard for you in the past, what has been challenging about it? What hang-ups or issues do you need a little help overcoming?

I'll have some giving information for Boot Camp next week. I sure hope you'll make that a matter of prayer. 

So eager to start the discussion!

Blessings,

pam :)

 

Pregame Session #1 — Who's Out There?

Jump in Today and Bring Your Friends

So glad to be studying with you this summer! As we wait for our June 21 official kick-off date, let's get the ball rolling with some introductions. No sense waiting around to try out the technology. Let's start now getting to know one another and getting accustomed to how the blog works. Here's a little something to do today:

Let us know what your name is along with a sentence or two about yourself.

Chime in on someone else's post.

That's it!

Looking forward to hearing from you!
