Breaking Free: Introduction

by Mandy on January 3, 2011

Welcome to Breaking Free!

This study certainly promises to be life changing for all of us!! After watching the first video session, I am so thrilled to be walking through this study with each of you! God has great things for us all!

First we need to cover the basics… We are not doing the Breaking Free study in a “normal” setting, so this will be a learn as we go process. Please, please feel free to send me a quick email or leave a comment here if you have any questions at all!  Again, you can go here to purchase the book and download the audio sessions for each week of the study.  If you do not have your book yet, don’t despair! You can also use this link to download and print “Week 1″ of the study so you can keep up with the daily lessons for at least another week!

If you are not familiar with Beth Moore Bible studies, they are super user-friendly, I promise! Each week has a series of five daily lessons {homework} you are to complete before our next “session.” You can download the audio/video sessions to help you fill out the viewer guide at the start of each week’s lessons {like pages 6-7 for this week}. These viewer sessions are key to grasping each week’s lessons, so I would strongly recommend that you go ahead and download them weekly! I can tell you that the introductory session has already blessed my soul so much!

Expect each day’s homework to take you about 30-45 minutes to complete.  There may be some times that you are not able to complete the lesson in one sitting, and that’s ok. We all have our own lives and responsibilities to attend to, so interruptions are expected. Just be sure to come back to the lessons and do your best to complete all five before the following Tuesday.  Please don’t give up if you get a little behind! I’m sure I will struggle a bit to always be on track as we go through the next ten weeks!

I think that’s all of the logistics of getting started. Let me know if I forgot to cover something!

I would love for each one of us to list a “take-away” phrase or statement at each week’s check-in post here.  You can just leave it in the comment section below my post from week to week.  But I would love to hear from you ~ to hear what God is showing you, teaching you, growing you ~ as we go through this study!! So please share!

Since we haven’t gotten to the homework lessons just yet, I will tell you that my take-away(s) from the introductory video were:

  • Beth says early in the video that the purpose for this study is so we can all “get freed up from our AGAIN…” This spoke to me so clearly because I am the world’s worst at falling back into the same fleshly pitfalls over and over again! I fail in my humanity a million times over before I get the lesson right! So I want to be freed up from my again!
  • I was also impressed by Beth’s definition of bondage:

“Bondage is anything that hinders us from the fullness of who God has called us to be.”

Are you ready to Break Free from that bondage?! I sure am! Get started with Week 1 here. {Don’t forget you can post discussions/questions on our facebook page as well! Would love to see you all there!}

Blessings and prayers this week!
