Walking With You ~ Threads of Hope Bible Study Giveaway

Comments closed…winners will be announced soon…

Walking With You is an outreach of Sufficient Grace Ministries, led by Kelly Gerken. We are a group of mothers who have lost a baby or child. We gather together from different places on our journey, each month to share our stories, to encourage, and pray for one another as we walk this path together. Our hope is that you will be comforted when you join us here…and maybe that we can offer some grace for the journey as we look to the Lord for comfort and strength. To view previous posts on Walking With You, please click on the button above.

This month for Walking With You, we are starting something new. We will be going through the Threads of Hope, Pieces of Joy Bible Study for the next nine weeks. Even if you have not joined us previously, I hope you will join us for this. All are welcome. My prayer is that it will bring hope and much-needed encouragement to hearts that are grieving.

We will be starting the Bible Study on February 25, 2010 and will continue each Thursday for a total of nine weeks. The first week in the book is where each member tells their story. Since we’ve already done that on Walking With You, we will start with Lesson 2 on our first session. If you are joining us for the first time, though, please share some of your story in the comments on this post or leave a link to a blog post telling about your child.

A little preparation is needed to get ready for each Thursday’s post. First, you will need a Threads of Hope, Pieces of Joy Bible Study book. There are a few ways you can get one.

1. They can be ordered here: www.lovingandcaring.org

2. One of the sweet authors, Gwen Kik, emailed me that they are willing to share their book online for free! You can click here to download it to your computer: Threads of Hope, Pieces of Joy. Thanks Gwen!

3. Or…you can leave a comment on this post and enter our giveaway to win one of five Threads of Hope Books we will be giving away this week!!

I just love a good giveaway, don’t you? =) Winners will be announced Monday, along with the winner from our Women of Faith giveaway!

    Oh, I would love to win one. Someone recommended this bible study to me awhile ago and I just haven't had time or opportunity yet.. I'm looking forward to participating in this.. Hope I can pull it together to do it!

  12. The Gerkens says:

    It is with joy and hope that I look forward to this study. While winning the book would be an added bonus, knowing we can download them for free is an incredible blessing itself! I am so looking forward to going through this book with you, Kelly, and everyone else! May God richly bless you and open your heart and mind to hear Him clearly as you prepare for the study.
    Warmly in the love of Christ Jesus,

  13. I would love to participate!
