Gifts & Blessings
A 7-Day Bible Study Challenge
It's a perfect time to steady your focus for this season of distractions, excess, and stress. Head straight for the good stuff, ladies - the peace and joy and truth - and forgo the others. ❤️ At first glance, this topic of Gifts & Blessings might seem very similar to November's topic of Thanks & Giving. But the truth is that these two studies are complementary, with this month's building on the foundation from the previous study.
*Jesus' birth + and how his life and death led to our redemption
*Gift of the Holy Spirit
*Blessings of the church
*God's varied grace
And a word about these "7 Day Bible Study Challenges"...you obviously don't have to complete it in 7 days - go at your own pace, sisters. Make it your own! ❤️ This study will be launched on December 9, 2018, but feel free to join later if you want!
Want to know what else is included in this study?
*4 devotionals (some with printable journaling prompts)
*beautiful, themed iPhone and computer wallpapers
*social media challenges (including shareable graphics)
*printables (such as worksheets, gratitude or prayer journaling, inspirational verses for framing, coloring sheets, and some surprises!)
*extra credit ideas/activities (new!) for further study/reflection
We'd love if you joined us for this Bible study challenge - the last of 2018.
Welcome! Our Christian lifestyle blog - www.theruffledmango.com - was launched in the summer of 2015, to fill a niche of speaking the truth in love. We want to encourage women to identify what the Bible really says, and then confidently step into their God-given roles, glorifying Him as we pass through this life. Our site has slowly evolved, with the feedback from our precious readers, to offering much more Bible study materials, such as our monthly scripture writing plans (offered for free on the blog). We also have created several physical products, such as our Faith Planner, scripture writing calendar, greeting cards, and printables (which you can find in our Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheRuffledMango) The four of us also enjoy creating online Bible studies, which are all housed here in our Teachable school: https://the-ruffled-mango-school.teachable.com/cou... We hope to add ebooks and printed workbooks to our offerings in the next year or so. =)
Besides our work with The Ruffled Mango, the four of us are busy with other work also. Kristen manages a local antique & gift shop and co-coordinates a huge tea party fundraiser each spring for student scholarships to a local Christian university. Ashley (a CPA) teaches college level accounting classes, mothers 4 sweet kiddos, and also tends chickens & an orphaned lamb in her spare time. Alyssa is mom to 3 active boys and sells fancy decorated cookies and cakes on the side. Christy is a health science teacher with 5 children and serves in the role as a preacher's wife also. All of us enjoy cooking and baking, along with working in various ministries in our home congregations.
