Mary, Martha & Lazarus

Spend four weeks in the Scriptures with this special family that Jesus loved. Watch Jesus through their eyes as they grow in understanding of His purpose on earth. Experience their conviction and His compassion, their confusion and His confidence. Worship Jesus with them and acknowledge Him as “the Messiah, the Son of God.”

Simon Peter

Set aside six weeks to walk in Peter’s sandals. See Jesus afresh through the life of the disciple who makes us laugh . . . and cringe . . . because he is so much like us.

Miracles of Jesus

Enter into some of those brief encounters between Jesus and a person in need. Consider the ways they approached Jesus, his various means of healing, and their responses to His miracles. Compare your personal experiences of Jesus with the Biblical accounts.

Cast of Christmas

Refresh your perspective on Christmas by considering the human “players” in the pageant of our Christmas story. For six weeks, carry on convicting yet encouraging conversations with each one of these historically and spiritually significant individuals.

Meet Carole

 

Carole took a round-about path to writing after graduating from both architecture school (BArch 1996) and seminary (MATh 2003) with top honors. Having journaled for years, she began sharing weekly “God thoughts” with a small circle of fellow Christ-followers. More than three years ago, the “God thoughts” morphed into a blog where Carole expounds on the Word of God as it applies to everyday life (and occasionally other relevant topics). In 2014, God called Carole to share the things He had taught her by writing Bible studies. These flow out of the blog posts as the Holy Spirit connects various Scriptures to each other and to the present day.

 

Having travelled far and read widely, Carole approaches life with the attitude that our experiences are our classroom and that there is something to be learned from every person. She asks, “What does God want to teach me here?” and “What is God saying through this person?” Quotes like, “The unexamined life is not worth living” (Socrates) linger in her mind. Some call it “navel-gazing,” but the time spent in reflection provides her with fodder for writing. More importantly, however, it reveals God’s glory like a silver thread woven through every moment of life—the good and the bad. The tone of her writing reflects that teachability and the idea of working through things together.
