The internet can be both dangerous and wonderful. It’s filled with many things that are not emotionally or spiritually healthy for us. BUT, it also provides us with some great online Bible study resources and tools. And many of them are FREE!
I still love printed resources and I have quite a few. But, I also supplement my study with online resources, tools, and writings. Just keep in mind that everything you find on the internet will not necessarily be biblical. Check everything you find against the truth of God’s Word.
A Word about Resources
You don’t HAVE to use extra resources to study God’s Word. These are supplemental. All Christians have the indwelling Holy Spirit that help us understand Scripture. With the proper study techniques we can do rich, meaningful Bible study on our own. (For a solid Bible study method see “The 4 R Bible Study Method for Everyday Use.”)

I lead an ongoing women’s Bible reading and discussion group on Facebook. We work through one Bible book at a time.
The doable-sized daily readings and questions post Monday through Friday at 5am CT so it’s ready when you are. Schedule your time in God’s Word and drop in to leave a comment when it works for you.
This closed group is a safe place for women to discuss Scripture and encourage each other in our lives of faith. To join, visit “Reading the Bible Together,” request to join, and answer the three quick questions.
