Hello! We are so excited about the Open Your Bible study and thought it would be the perfect way to begin the new year. What better way to start 2016 than to get in God’s Word? We would love to have you join us for this 7-week online Bible study. We’ll begin on January 7 and meet here each week until February 18.*
Here’s a little more about Open Your Bible:
Whether you are a seasoned Bible reader or struggle to keep up with studying Scripture, Open Your Bible will leave you with a greater appreciation for the Word of God, a deeper understanding of its authority, and a stronger desire to know the Bible inside and out.
Join Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams, the women behind She Reads Truth, in this 7-session Bible study. Using powerful storytelling, real-life examples, and Scripture itself, Open Your Bible will quench a thirst you might not even know you have—one that can only be satisfied by God’s Word.

We are excited to bring this study into an online format and hope you’ll consider studying with us.
To participate in the study:
- Go to your email and add “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your contacts. This will help your spam filter to recognize the Bible study emails and—we hope—not delete them or send them to your spam filter.
- Fill out the form below to be added to our email list. This will let us know how many people are participating in the study and will provide you with a reminder each week when we post the next session.
- Purchase a copy of the Open Your Bible study book here. If you purchase it between now and the end of November, you will receive a free notebook and free shipping within the U.S. Due to the nature of this study, an e-reader version is not available. We know this affects our international customers the most. INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Click here for details on ordering from overseas.
- Return to the blog each week starting January 7 to see exclusive online study videos from Raechel and Amanda.
- Participate in the comments here on the blog or in our private Facebook group.
A note about the Bible study videos: Open Your Bible has optional video downloads available for purchase online (for group or individual use). These videos are not the same as the free videos available here on the blog. The videos for purchase are more like teaching videos and dive deeper into the topic of each session. They are the videos that go with the group time in the Bible study book. We recommend them if you want to dive deeper into Raechel and Amanda’s teaching on Scripture.
We’d love for you to gather a group from your church, your neighborhood, your school, or your workplace to do the study together. We believe that Bible study is more effective (and more fun!) in community. If you cannot find a group in your area, that’s OK! Join us here and answer the questions in the comments or in our private Facebook group. You’ll still get a lot out of it, and you just might make some new friends!
This online Bible study is not meant to replace the Bible study your church may already do this winter. We want you to study with your local group of believers first! If your group decides to do Open Your Bible as their study, we think the online dynamic will be a fun addition for your group. But if your group is already committed to doing another study, you can come back and do Open Your Bible with us at anytime—the videos and study posts will be live indefinitely.
Whew! We know that’s a lot of info, but we want to be sure you have the answer to any question you might have. And here is the answer to the Most Frequently Asked Question in the history of the Lifeway Women blog (probably): The online Bible study videos will be up indefinitely. We have no plans to remove them from the Internet. So, if you cannot participate now or if you get behind, don’t panic! You can catch up any time.
Once you sign up, let your friends know! Download this picture and post on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
