In His Presence daily Online Bible Study March 28


Today’s Scripture:

Mark 1:16-34

(Seems like a lot , but I believe it all happened the same day.)

*I’m  having trouble getting the Youtube live feed working.  I’ll keep trying and hopefully have that all set up by next week.

Youtube In His Presence LIVE daily Bible Study

I have some EXCITING NEWS!  Starting tomorrow, you can visit our In His Presence Youtube Channel at 6:30AM and watch a LIVE Morning Bible Study.  I’ll introduce the Scripture selection for the day (the same one I post here on the blog) and pray with you.  I’ll do the same M-F each week.  To be clear, the Scripture selections will still be posted daily on the blog as usual.  I’ll keep my videos brief so you can get right to your time In His Presence by reading the scripture selections, journaling, and praying.

The daily live videos will be saved, so you can watch later in the day, if you are spending  your time In His Presence later in the day.

Here’s the Youtube link.

Here on the blog, we are in a series of reading through the Gospels looking to learn more about Jesus’ personality.  We just finished Matthew on Friday and are about to begin Mark on Monday.  Even if you weren’t with us for Matthew and even if you miss a day here and there, don’t stop!  Each day’s Scripture reading can stand alone.  I try to divide the passages up that way.  So, just jump in whenever!  The Bible is alive and active, no matter which part you’re reading!

I’m looking forward to sitting with you on Monday.  Get your Bible, journal and, of course, your coffee and join me at 6:30AM every morning Monday through Friday.

Here’s a little theme music to get us motivated!  See you Monday!

Kickstarter Update

Perhaps it was ambitious, but so’s my Mission Statement:  To see ALL people fall in love with Jesus, break free, and live victoriously the rest of their lives.

The purpose of my Kickstarter is:

  • Online Bible Study at redesigned website
  • Journals redesigned
  • In-house printing

I will continue the In His Presence morning Scripture posts and afternoon Family Connection posts, but I’d love to do so on a paid blog platform that is well designed and organized. I’d like for it to have a way for people to purchase Journals and Bible study materials right from the site, so it needs eCommerce capability.

I’d like to hire my friend, Meghan, who is an amazing graphic designer and is tucking money away for future missions work.  She will redesign the website, Journal covers and interiors, and Bible Studies for Preteens as well as the Growing Character Bible Study Journal for Girls.

I’d love to be able to print the Journals myself.  Selling them digitally means that you have to print 340 pages and take to an office supply store to spiral bind.  I can sell these cost effectively if I can print and bind in-house.

Yes, it is ambitious, but I firmly believe that He is “able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.” (Ephesians 3:20)

Please pray, even if you aren’t able to give.  I know that God’s favor will have to rest on this project for it to be successful and I wouldn’t want it any other way. 

Please share this with anyone you know who will pray or give.  The deadline is two days away!

Here’s the link. (Special thanks to my friend, Sarah, for putting together the video.)

Thanks so much,

I’m very excited to announce that I’ve created a Kickstarter campaign to move our In His Presence online Bible Studies and Journals to the next level.

What will that mean?

  • a better blog/website with no ads!
  • designer journal and Bible Study covers created by a graphic designer
  • a shopping cart right on the website making it convenient for you to order
  • the ability to print and ship in-house, making it cost effective to offer you a hard copy of the journals and Bible Studies

Kickstarter is doing an All In 1 promotion for the month of March, where you run a campaign for 1 week only.  My campaign begins today and ends next Sunday.  It’s a big goal for such a short period, so I need your help spreading the word.

Everyone who donates $10 or more will receive a digital journal of their choice.  They will also be entered into a drawing to receive one of four gorgeous Scripture prints donated to this campaign by Amen Paper Company.

It’s my sincere desire for everyone to spend time In His Presence reading their Bibles and praying daily.

Special thanks to my sweet friends Meghan and Sarah for helping me put this campaign together!
