My church hosts frequent ladies Bible studies, and much of the time I am able to participate. But in the busyness of like, I can’t always. It’s during these times (such as now) that I enjoy finding a study I can do during my quiet time. Actually, without the discipline of consistently doing Bible studies, I struggle with making the time for quiet time.
Earlier today, as I was looking online for a study I could begin this week, I found Kay Arthur’s Bible study book, which led to her free course, teaching her inductive Bible study method. I have wanted to learn this method for a long time so that I can sometimes forego the pre-written Bible study and just study the Bible as I feel led.
While I will likely do that for awhile, it occurred to me that there were likely other Bible study tools for women available free online, and after searching for awhile I found quite a few that I am looking forward to using in the future. Here’s a list of about 50 free Bible studies for women I was able to find.
