Studying the Book of Esther

It's time for a new study.  The Good Morning Girls Bible study has gone through some reorganization.
I will not pretend to know all the details....good or bad.  I'll leave the details up to God and the ladies in leadership.  The Bible study continues now under the name of Love God Greatly  and they are now enrolling for the next study which will be The Book of Esther.  The enrollment time is August 18th through the 29th. The study dates will run  for 8 weeks from September 1st through October 24th.
These studies are always challenging and they help with staying consistent with daily Biblical study and growth.  You can register at the above link in order to get the free study plan.  You can study alone or you can join one of their many email or Facebook groups in order to interact and learn along with other ladies.
