Great News! I have added a new Bible study page to our list of studies. This one is on the Gospel of John. Our Women’s Bible study began this study through John’s Gospel in the Fall of 2019, however by March 2020 we had to suspend our studies due to the Covid outbreak. I did not attempt to teach via Zoom or any other online method as all the women had their own churches and small groups to keep up with. However, by the summer it became apparent that our type of study was still needed. Throughout the summer I sent a daily devotional audio which I called, “Your Morning 30”. Each one was around 30 minutes long. That went over really well. I used the study posted on here from the Book of James, and the Book of Acts among others.

Now, it is nearing time for our studies to resume for the Fall semester. The question naturally arose, “How are we going to do it?” What we’ve decided to do is still meet in person for those who are willing and able to do so, and to live stream for others. The great thing about this is that now you – no matter where you live – can participate in our studies! I will post pdfs of the lessons for you to do the lessons each week, and then the video of the lesson will be uploaded to YouTube. I have posted the previous lessons and the audios of the teaching on this new page so you can take a look at the lessons and maybe even gather some friends and do the studies in your home.

Please share this information and feel free to use the lessons. The use for personal study is free, but not for distribution. They are free, but if you’d like to donate to help us cover costs, you can find that info on my contact page

 

And please, keep us and our group in prayer. And may God Bless you as you study His Word!

Those of you who subscribe to this blog know that I certainly don’t inundate you with too many blog posts! LOL! My last post was more than 6 months ago. I always keep meaning to post something – but contrary to John Denver’s words of “Life on the farm is kinda laid-back…” here on our farm, life is non-stop! With full time writing and teaching of Bible studies, for three groups per week, plus a Sunday morning lesson, plus grandchildren and farm-life – well – this blog often got left behind.

Like everyone else, however, life changed in March. Our Women’s Bible Study group halted, as did church (for about 6 weeks – we’re back at it now!) But since my husband retired at the end of 2019, our farm life actually got busier. But, I think I am beginning to get a handle on things (at least until the garden starts coming in, that is). But, there is a reason that I wanted to make this blog post now.

Since our Women’s Bible study group halted, many of the women were missing a Bible study like we were doing – which is a “verse-by-verse” type of study through Books of the Bible. I kept trying to figure out a way to continue doing that online – but just didn’t have the equipment or strength of internet connection to do it. So – what I decided to do was share a daily (M-F) devotional/Bible study in various formats. I post these on our East Knox Women’s Bible Study Connection group on Facebook, as well as on my own twitter feed. I am also sending these via e-mail. If you would be interested in receiving them, please e-mail me at bnprayerlogue(at)cs(dot)com. (This is written this way to avoid bots.)

I began sending these to the women on our Bible study e-mail list, and many of them have requested that I add friends or relatives of theirs to the list. I’d love to have you join us. These are called “Your Morning 30”. They are around 30 minutes long (+/-). Since I am not an early riser (any longer) I usually send these out and post them late the night before. We have gone through the Books of James and Ruth already, but if you would like to hear those lessons, they are posted on separate pages on this blog.

 

I hope you are weathering the pandemic well. There is only One in Whom we have Hope. I pray that you listen often for His voice.

I  am in the process of doing a major update to this blog. (Goodness knows it has needed it for a long time!) This will be a long drawn out process as I have been writing and teaching, pretty much full time, for more a couple of years now and have a ton of new content to add to the blog. I have updated the following pages:

The Gospel of Matthew audio study

1st and 2nd Thessalonians and the Man Behind the Letter

The Current Bible Studies page

The “Our Blessed Hope” studies page

And the “Whole Book Studies” page

There’s a whole lot more to do. I have Youtube videos to add and several audio studies links to add, but this is a start. If you check any of these out and have a problem with any of the links, please let me know as I did not test every single one.

 

I will try to start posting every time I upload a study to either Youtube or SoundCloud, that way you can stay updated. Please feel free to comment or to reply to the e-mail notices. I appreciate your prayers and support, too.

 

I just yesterday uploaded these two audio lessons. I will try to post the previous lessons that go with these in the next week or so.

This audio came from our Sunday morning series as we work our way through the Gospel of Matthew. This will be similar to the longer version of the Matthew study, except these are designed to be approximately 30 minutes in length. We are currently in the Sermon on the Mount, and expect to be there until Advent this year.

Love Your Enemies

 

This audio is from our East Knox Women’s Bible Study group. We are working our way through the Gospel of John (verse-by-verse, and sometimes word-by-word!) Here are all three of our lessons (since we just started a few weeks ago.) You can read about this group on the The Current Bible Studies page

The Gospel of John Introduction Fall 2019

Lesson One – Overview

Lesson Two – The Prologue 

Lesson Three – “Witnesses”

 

I hope you enjoy these, and they are beneficial to you.

My Facebook post this morning:

In addition to our current Ladies’ Bible study from Matthew, I’ve also been working on putting together another series for “Hand to the Plow” (recorded at Ark Studio, Inc and currently airing Sunday nights on Comcast channel 241 iHope TV in the Knoxville, TN viewing area). This next series was to be “Running the Race with Faith” taken from Hebrews 11-13…

However, this morning God laid a “hankering” on my heart to teach through the book of Amos… I think that will take around 10-12 episodes. I have money that has been donated for about 6 lessons already. If any of this teaching has helped or encouraged you, please consider making a donation. No amount is too small – it all adds up.

You can send a check to
Betty J. Newman
P. O. Box 6675
Knoxville, TN 37914
or if you want to make a tax deductable donation, make it to
Ark Studio, Inc.
P.O. Box 6095
Knoxville, TN 37914

I promise you that every penny will go to this project. And please, feel free to message me or e-mail for more information or comments.

I am extremely excited to announce a new ministry opportunity that has opened up for me beginning this summer. As many of you know writing and teaching Bible Studies is my passion. Just this past year we started uploading the audio of our Bible study lessons to SoundCloud. You can learn more about these on our Audio Bible Study page 

Now we are taking Bible studies to a whole new level – video Bible Studies! This has been a dream of mine for years, but due to costs, it was only a dream. Earlier this year a lady (whom I have never met) donated enough money to Ark Studio (a Christian recording studio located in Knoxville, TN) to  cover the filming of an initial series of Bible Study lessons. These studies will be 30 minutes in length and available to watch on youtube.

The title of the program will be “Hand to the Plow”

Those of you who know me, know that we live on a 225 year old family farm and our rich Appalachian heritage is very important to us. I am just a farm wife, mother, grandmother and writer whose passion is Bible studies. I have a definite Appalachian accent and make no apologies for it – it’s just me. I have been studying and writing for more than 40 years and now I have an opportunity to share that with you.

We will begin recording very soon and I will share those videos with you and information how you can subscribe to get a notice every time a new one is uploaded. This first series will be titled “Our Blessed Hope”. It is based on the last four chapters of the Book of Revelation. Every believer needs to know these facts. We do, my friends, have a “Blessed Hope” promised to us – and we need to learn how to share it with others! I hope you will pray for me and this new ministry!

And… (more exciting news) these videos are being designed with the format to be televised if a sponsor can be found. If you would like to support this ministry no donation is too small. We hope to raise enough to keep recording studies until God opens the door for television ministry. Please share this with anyone you know who would enjoy serious, verse-by-verse Bible studies!

We will soon offer PayPal for your online donations, but for now you can send donations to:

Betty Newman

P.O. Box 6675

Knoxville, TN 37914

I am not (yet) a non-profit ministry, so your donations will not be tax deductible (I assure you every penny will go toward the ministry) – but if you’d prefer to donate to a non-profit, send donations to:

Ark Studio

P.O. Box 6095

Knoxville, TN 37914

and designate that it is for Betty Newman.

Above all, I ask for your prayers, that God would direct me in His service! Amen!
