Women Living Well book study: the reading plan

I'm so excited to get started on the Women Living Well book study! I think we're going to have such a great time studying how to be joyful at home with our families!

Some of you are still waiting on books- no worries! Your first reading assignment doesn't begin until next week- October 16. Each week after the 16th, we'll discuss our last week's readings and I will post your new "study guide" for the next week right here on the blog.

All you need is a copy of the book and your Bible, {and access to the internet ;)}. I'll be posting your simple "study guide" worksheet/homework for you to download right here every Wednesday {Lord-willing! :D}. If you want to make sure you don't miss a post, you're welcome to subscribe by email, follow the Facebook page or follow {bh} on Bloglovin.

I also looked into several different options for discussing our thoughts together, but the simplest way I found is to just do it right here in the comments of the WLW posts. You can reply to specific posts in a thread right here on the post- plus, it keeps everything simple and doesn't require social media to interact {I know everyone doesn't have a Facebook page}. And after it's all done, we can come back to our {hopefully} fruitful discussion as a resource very easily if we leave it in one place.

Of course, if you have a group of friends already doing it together, you could easily create a closed Facebook Group, or use Twitter hashtags. If you want to interact throughout the week and don't have a group, you're welcome to post on the {bh} Facebook page as well!

Here's the reading plan for the next 8 weeks:

I hope that all makes sense! :D

To summarize: we start reading one week from today, and I'll post your first 3 chapter study guide sheet next week on the 16th of October {a.k.a my last day of being 30 ever :( dum, dum, dum....  }

Do you have any questions? I'll try to answer them below! {though- please forgive me- it may be slow due to the one-handed typing /nursing/homeschooling answering I have going on most of the time!}
