Girls' Bible Study: Psalms

Course Description:

Process/Purpose

“Visit many good books, but live in the Bible.”― Charles Spurgeon

“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
Hebrews 4:12


Since the Word of God is “living and active” it has the unique ability to transform our lives as we spend time in it. The class will not only study the Bible for information, but for transformation as well. This course is designed to give girls an opportunity to develop an appreciation for, and basic understanding of, the Bible as they learn about and study God’s Word. This class will begin with asking the important questions about God’s word: What? Why? and How? We will cover an overview about the Bible and why it is important in our lives and how we can study it.


From there, we will use Seamless by Angie Smith to explore major  events from the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. The goal is to lead girls to a complete understanding of God’s story as seen from Genesis to Revelation. Each session will feature people, places, and promises, including maps, general Bible facts, word studies, and key information that ties all of Scripture together into the seamless truth of the gospel message. Then, we will turn to answer the questions of “Who is God?” and “Who am I?” Utilizing Defined by Priscilla Shirer as a guide, we will make an in-depth examination of spiritual truths from the Book of Ephesians to lead girls to a better understanding and appreciation of their God-given identity.
