I am excited to try our very first Online Book Study. I hope you are as well. We will begin the week of April 13, 2015 and we will be reading and studying the book, Keep It Shut, by Karen Ehman. Here is a blurb about the book:
From Bible times to modern times women have struggled with their words. What to say and how to say it. What not to say. When it is best to remain silent. And what to do when you’ve said something you wish you could now take back. In this book a woman whose mouth has gotten her into loads of trouble shares the hows (and how-not-tos) of dealing with the tongue.
As we prepare, you can begin by subscribing to this blog. Enter your email address in the bar to the right of this post. It will allow you to receive weekly blog posts right in your email! Simple, right? If you don't want to subscribe but still want to participate you can just visit the blog site each week at www.stmobs.blogspot.com or you can visit the church website for the link: www.stmkaty.org
Next, use the amazon bar on the side or go to amazon and order your copy of Keep It Shut. You can order a hard copy or download it to your kindle. I believe it is available in ibooks as well, if that is your thing.
The study will last about 6 weeks. Each week there will be certain chapters that we will read and there will be blog posts for you to read that will help you along with your reading. Your reading and posting can be done at your convenience when you have time! You can comment back online to each post to help make this an interactive learning experience. This is encouraged but not required. We are also considering more interactive "meet ups" on twitter or facebook but that is in the works right now.
I really hope you will join us as we consider how God expects us to control our wayward little tongues!
