Highlighted Blog #11 – Growing With God

A friend of mine writes this one, and of course, I have to follow it. But it’s not friend-obligation that makes me look forward to reading it. I believe in God, but I find that thoughts on Bible passages are not all I want for when I have my quite time with God. I want to know more.

What do different interpretations say? What was the history surrounding the things I read from the time? This blog goes more in-depth than most daily readings. And I love it.

I appreciate how the author takes time to dig below the surface. And it links to music I might never find on my own, broadening my horizons. Love it.

* For the month of November (the month of Thanksgiving in the United States), I’m sharing  writing from some of the blogs I’m thankful for. If you want thankful posts from my own personal day-to-day stuff, check out my Inspired By and Thankful For blog.

Book Clubs and Bible Studies

I’ve been missing regular meetings with friends sharing thoughts on books and Bible passages, but I’m traveling enough that joining a group isn’t really practical. After searching online I came across sites such as the Women’s Bible Cafe. It’s perfect for me!

Right now we are studying Elijah, and beginning late November we are going to discuss the book The Women of Christmas: Experience the Season Afresh with Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna by Liz Curtis Higgs.

The group meets something like 15 times a week, accounting for different time zones and schedules. If you can’t make your regular time, you just join another group. Or skip a week. All communication is done via typing so shaky networks are not a problem (as I discovered yesterday while traveling).

I’m thankful to share thoughts and opinions on books and studies in a way that works with my current life situation.

**For the month of November each year, I try to focus on something I’m thankful for each day. It is the month that holds Thanksgiving where I live, after all. Focusing on the positive and remembering the little things that make life great is something I should do more often. If you want to see some blogs I’m thankful for, check out my main site, Word Quilt.
