I hope you have your seat belts buckled and your tray tables in their upright position, because we are on the runway getting ready to take off on this amazing adventure! We had two great classes in South Florida yesterday (2/12) and I can’t wait to get you guys started too!
Here’s what we are going to do for those of you who are joining us in the friendly skies of the internet (for the record I have NO idea why I am using SO much flight talk…just like it, ha!). Actually I think I am just now starting to think clearly (at 12:30am, go figure) after being sick for the last 4 days, PLUS I am super excited about this book!
So, here’s what the Book Study is going to look like for you (my online friends). Every Friday we will meet here in Mel’s World to discuss any comments, thoughts, or a-ha! moments from the lessons and study guide (see below for the weekly schedule). If you are doing this with a group of chicks in your neck of the woods I would suggest that you guys meet together on Friday’s to discuss it together (just an idea).
Also…have you heard of SKYPE? If not…now’s the time. It is truly amazing! We can stop here in Mel’s World on Friday’s (after 11am EST) to review the post for the week. I am going to come up with some questions, thoughts, quotes from the sessions for that week and then at 1pm (EST) we’ll do a SKYPE instant message chat room. It will be our very own VIRTUAL SMALL GROUP…how cool is that? With real time chatting going on! WooHoo!
Here’s how that looks…if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and Skype name (handle) then I can add you to a group. This way even if you can’t make the group session you will be able to log onto Skype and see the message notes from that day’s chat session.
What do you think?
Do you like it?
Is that something that will work for you?
That being said…we’re going to do a little “Get To Know You” game today!
Leave a comment with the answers to the following questions;
- Your name
- A word (that starts with the first letter of your name) that describes you.
- What state you live in
- and as a child your favorite childhood dream was…
- Sunny South Florida
- I wanted to be Wonder Woman when I grew up (don’t laugh, it’s true!)
See…that was easy, right…now it’s your turn!
So, grab your book and get started, below you will see the schedule for the meetings so you can stay up to date with us. This study can be as much or as little as YOU want. You can make it light and fluffy or you can dig a little deeper to get to some REAL core issues.
I would just urge you to take the time to do this study as it is laid out. With the DVD clips, the book, the study guide, and now the group…well, let’s just say, by the end let’s hope we’ve got our rubber band emotions all untangled so we can SHINE for Him!
