I knew I was about to have some fun when THESE kept us from getting the Bible Study started on time–
I’ll admit, I completely understand even though I was the OLDEST in the room….by a decade! Even I was ooohhhing and awwwing over these heels–
Last night was the first night of a Bible Study I am leading that is filled from the tip of the cute hairdo’s to the tip of the Spring Green toenails with “Twirty Somethings”.
I am thrilled to say the least, to be leading a group of Millennial women though a discussion about THEIR Biblical worldview concerning men, marriage, motherhood AND TATTOOS, for a fun edgy book I have been working on for over 2 years!
The room was filled to the brim as we nervously mingled. They had come at the invitation of my precious hostess, a beautiful young worship leader–aka:Wife, Mom, Daughter, God Chasing Chick.
They came because they love her and they came because they were curious about actually TALKING about the stuff we are going to talk about IN A CHURCH GROUP, A BIBLE STUDY no less!
I have to admit, I speak before large crowds about such tender topics as immorality and abortion–although my rule of thumb is “Never let em see you Sweat”– I was SWEATING!
When I looked out on those gorgeous, curios faces, who ranged from the age of my youngest daughter to my oldest son, gathered in the circle (AFTER I FINALLY DRAGGED THEM AWAY FROM THE RED BOOTS!) all I could think of was “Oh, MY, I should have taken the time to force a few of my OLD girlfriends to come with me”.
I may need some HELP here 🙂
They all sweetly looked at me with respect, anticipation and a bit of hmmmm???…….
I wondered what in the name of MY JESUS, I had gotten myself into.
It turned out, there was no need to worry.
After my brief introduction of the goal of the book; the study I have done to stir my passion and the plan of action for the next 8 weeks, I turned it over to them, which is my main plan for every week. Let THEM do the talking!
WOW—Here we go.
I am in LOVE.
They are fresh, they are honest (in a BIBLE STUDY no less–go figure) and they are ready to talk.
We went around the circle as each told her age, a little about herself and shared their excitement for the study.
One of the first comments was “I want you to know, I sometimes dress like a prostitute for my husband”.
I guess I won’t have to worry about getting to the tough stuff!!
God has me, at my age, involved in some of the most exciting ministry opportunities I have ever experienced, but THIS—THIS is about to rock my world.
Is “rock” a current word girls??? I know your on here 🙂
I am going to be sharing some tid bits from our Tuesday night meetings on Wednesday mornings here on “Living Free”. Some of my sweet young friends will be joining us here to chime in and say hello.
I’ll be giving away LOTS of goodies at the end of the month to my most frequent commenters so PLEASE—
Share your thoughts as we go.
If You would like to be a VIRTUAL part of the group and have TWENTY or THIRTY in your age…leave a comment with your email contact.
I might even take on a few of you “Older” girls for support!! Just let me know if you think you can handle it!
Our First Question–
As women, should we “DRESS for our husbands” in PUBLIC??? or PRIVATE ONLY????
