Exciting news here today! After about 6 months of praying and preparing I am finally opening my second Etsy shop!!! Still Waters Bible Study Materials will be the part of my business wholly devoted to helping people study the bible!
I’ve posted a lot on here about my journey through bible memorization. I just finished memorizing the book of Philippians. Last year I did James and it changed the way I think about bible study. You can find my thoughts on that here. It’s taken me MUCH longer to get through Philippians even though it is a slightly smaller book. Over the last year and a half the Lord has been planting seeds in my heart to try and help other people memorize the Word of God as well. Last year I released my first scripture memory pack of James. It has been discontinued in my main shop and a new updated version is now available on Still Waters but the vision for this part of my business is much bigger than just Bible Memorization.
Early this spring I read Jen Wilkin’s Book Women of the Word. I would highly recommend it. Her heart, like mine, is to encourage women to Bible literacy. In our social media christian conference culture we have all kinds of devotionals and books at our fingertips. Don’t get me wrong many of them are wonderful but my fear is that as believers we soak up so much of other peoples opinions about the bible we (myself included) often neglect to search out the scriptures for ourselves.
In the book of Deuteronomy God is commanding His people Israel concerning His word.
“You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. 19 You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up. 20 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your sons may be multiplied on the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens remain above the earth. 22 For if you are careful to keep all this commandment which I am commanding you to do, to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and hold fast to Him,”
Like Israel we are to treasure the commandments and words in scripture that God has given us. It is my hope that the tools I provide might be an encouragement and help to accomplish this.
I hope you can visit the shop today and check out some of our new resources.
