Digging Deep for Women 2021

It’s finally here! The Hour Has Come features twelve lessons we learn from the last conversations of Christ before the cross. After completing His public ministry, Christ provided comfort and counsel for the eleven men who would be commissioned with the greatest task in mortal history. He prayed deeply for them and for us. These conversations are full of spiritual strength for us as we go about this very same mission. This Digging Deep study is perfect for any ladies class in any year and it’s best of all for personal growth in women of God.

For those who want to participate in the study without purchasing a deluxe study book, a free pdf of all study questions/comments will be available for download before the study begins on September 1st.

March On!

Wow! Time’s getting by. I hope you’re “March-ing on!” There’s one more D.A.B. still to be posted for February. It’s about capital punishment, once more, (which really has something to do with both Feb. and March…so good.) It’s time to get four more up on the seventh command about avoiding the destructive sin of adultery.
The March video podcast will be early (the sixteenth) and Holly Smith, who is a deep Bible student, joins us that night. I’m excited about some new equipment and expertise which is allowing us to use more cameras, a better mic, and better dual transmission on both Facebook and Livestream. That podcast is just eleven days away!
Please pray as the study for 2021-22 is being written in the last half of this month. Be thinking of whom to invite to join us this next year. All systems are go, so far, for Polishing the Pulpit in August in Sevierville, TN, where the topic for next year will be revealed. I’m always excited about that because it’s a personal source of strength for me as I get to see so many women genuinely excited about the Word in their hearts and actions.
Also remaining in the month of March, Glenn and I will be traveling to Jacksonville, FL for a gospel meeting and Hannah and I will be speaking at the Brushy church in Centerville, Tennessee on the 20th. The preliminary plans and the flyer for the November, 2022 Italy/Israel trip are being prepared. I hope to have those to you by mid March. Additionally, many of our churches will be making final preparations for the Lads to Leaders convention. As my husband is consumed with making sure his bases at the Nashville convention are covered, I am reminded to pray for all of those who are trying to make our conventions happen in the most challenging of times for gatherings and fellowship. This is just a hard task and prayers for wisdom for those who are working so hard to make this happen are the one thing we are all privileged to offer. I have seen firsthand and frequently the value of this program in young lives and congregations. It’s a providential tool that has impacted thousands and continues to ultimately lead to souls in heaven. So pray about this.
I’m not forgetting to pray for the legion of women who are hurting. Shirley has lost her husband, and so has Joan. Carol is fighting cancer. Nina is praying hard for a sick grandchild. Another Carol is having tests done. Patsy is awaiting medical test results, too. Maggie is suffering in several ways. Terri is having an amazingly hectic month. Dene’ is praying hard for several members of her family. Jen is praying for the children in her world. Tammy is struggling, physically. Mariah is a brand new Christian and working to be victorious. Amy is determined to keep her family in the Word while in, but not of, the world. Sarah is helping another family who is trying to do that, also. Lisa is going the second, third and fourth mile in taking care of people who need her. And my list could just go on from there. I know your’s does, too. If I know anything from this list that grows each time I open my phone or laptop, it’s this: We all need Digging Deep. The Word sustains, clarifies, strengthens and gives us joy. We need those things in this time when (perhaps it’s just my perspective), but it seems there’s an almost measurable and tangible increase in suffering and sorrow around us. You can be in the Word without Digging Deep, but I know that I’d be less equipped to be diligent in study without a concrete plan in my calendar.
Finally, pray for our country. Oh yes, pray for America. But I really mean pray for the country of our truest citizenship. Pray for the Kingdom that has its governmental headquarters in heaven. Pray that we can shine in this era of chaos and rebellion against the authority that emanates from heaven itself. Pray that we can find our way with the light of His Word to that throne of ultimate authority. May we do so with boldness in a world that largely mocks our devotion to King Jesus! Each of us is just one person, but our God is the God of loaves and fishes!

Digging Deep 2019-2020

Several first-timers are asking for details about exactly how to do the 2019-2020 Digging Deep “Glory” study. Some have invited others (yay!) and these very significant “others”are needing the format for the study so they can begin with confidence. (Please do invite friends, especially your friends who are not Christians!) It’s so easy that it’s hardly worth a post, but, just in case you are overwhelmed with back-to-school, home-schooling or, better yet, congregational involvement overload, here it is: the study in a nutshell.

1. Every first day of every month beginning now, a new portion of the study will appear on the Digging Deep in God’s Word facebook page. That’s the place to find a concise copy of the current month’s study and the place to discuss the dig with others all over the world. Go there and see the discussion already happening! This year’s study has also been made available in a free download here and in a workbook called “Glory” also available online at the store. 

2. Be sure and join the Digging Deep for Encouragement Facebook group as well. That’s the place for any prayer requests that are unrelated to the study.

3. Try your best to pace yourself throughout the month so that you can finish each month’s study by month’s end.

4. Keep your notes digitally or get the Digging Deep workbook. Either works fine. You just need someplace for notes!

5. Near the end of each month, there will be a live podcast discussing the month’s study. You will be able to type in your comments and questions in this chatroom and we will discuss them together: http://new.livestream.com/whcoc/for-women . All podcasts will be archived on this site, as well, so if you can’t listen live, you can listen later. It generally will occur on the last Tuesday of each month, but we will let you know the exact schedule well in advance on the podcast and on both of the facebook pages. (If you want to go and listen to podcasts from other years, you may do that, too.)

6. There’s also an audio podcast that happens four times each month. If you prefer to listen to those instead of watching the video podcast each month, find them here: https://thecolleyhouse.org/dig-a-bit-podcasts. Optimally, though, you can learn from both formats!

7. You may optionally subscribe to this blog which will often, but not always, be an addendum to the study. It generally posts twice a week, usually on Mondays and Thursdays: https://thecolleyhouse.org/category/bless-your-heart .

8. The last podcast of the year will come to you live from ‘Polishing the Pulpit” during that annual conference that occurs each August. Those present who have completed the entire study (all reading, questions, podcasts, and challenges) will be recognized there.

8 Anyone who wants a Digging Deep t-shirt, be sure and order here. We have to have the shirt orders quickly so as to get them back from the company and get them in the packages with the books in time for you to do the September study!

We are always indebted to the elders at the West Huntsville church for their support and oversight. We are thankful for Jennifer Benavides for tech support and for every woman who co-hosts on our monthly podcast. But we are especially thankful for those of you who are committing to, persevering in and inviting to this year’s study. It’s not too late to invite friends. Most of all, we thank the Father through the Son for this great study from the Holy Spirit!
