Marinate Blog Summer Study: Week 6

Interesting day. I was was going to drop Shep off at school, record the video, and spend the rest of the morning studying. It was going to be a fabulous, productive a.m. complete with coffee and the oh-so-wonderful sound of complete silence.

About 15 minutes into this video, my camera went dead. While I was charging it (and very frustrated with myself for not checking the battery BEFORE I started), I got a text from my hair stylist that said “running late.” Yep, that’s right – I had a hair appointment that I totally forgot to put on my calendar. So, off I went to get my cut and color which took my entire morning. When I picked up Shep at noon, there was still no video, but I did manage to acquire a massive headache. I put him down for a nap and finally managed to finish recording the video, do some editing,¬†“produce” the file, and begin the upload process. . . with a little time left over to squeeze in a tiny nap that did wonders for the intense pounding going on inside this head of mine. Gotta love it when a day has a mind of it’s own. I suppose I should be a little more diligent about building margins into my life. But where’s the fun in that? ūüôā

It’s hard to believe we only have one session left after this one. I have really enjoyed doing this study with you! As always, if you have a minute, I’d love to hear how the Lord spoke to your heart through this session.

Surrender, sacrifice, separation, saturation, service!

Marinate Blog Summer Study: Week 5

If you are reading this via email, you will need to click on the title to view the video.

Here’s week 5, but DO NOT get discouraged if you’re several weeks behind. Like I’ve said before, the beauty of online Bible study is that you can do it at your own pace. Keep moving forward, but if life slows you down a bit, that’s okay!

If anything stands out to you from this lesson that you feel particularly led to share, I would LOVE to hear from you in the comment section!

Marinate Blog Summer Study: Week 4

(Note:  If you are viewing this as an email, you need to click on the title above to view the video from the website.)

This is officially my favorite one. Romans 6 . . . oh how wonderful!

Does any¬†particular truth stand out to you as you watch and “marinate”? I sure would love to hear about it!

Marinate Blog Summer Study: Week 3

Here’s the third teaching video. I’d love to hear what benefit of being a justified believer is most precious to you!

 

Marinate Blog Summer Study: Week 1

Not only do I have a new Bible study for you today, I have a whole new blog! MarinateBlog.com and AprileSweers.com are now one in the same. The new blog is¬†going to allow me a lot more flexibility moving forward, which I’m excited about. There are a few things to tweak (such as making it readable on mobile devices), so bear with me. We’ll get there!

Here’s the first teaching video of our Romans study – New You, New View: How the Gospel Changes Everything. It’s okay if you¬†have already started the workbook, but this video is intended to be watched before you get started on your first week of homework.

A few things:

  • If it looks all green and garbled, give it a few minutes to buffer.
  • If you have subscribed to the blog but never received the workbook, let me know!
  • If you haven’t subscribed but want the workbook all you have to do is enter your e-mail address in the “subscribe” section to the right. Then, activate your subscription when you receive the e-mail asking you to do so (just a click¬†– super simple).

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this lesson! One thing you got out of it, one truth that stood out to you the most – something like that. We can make this study much more interactive (and fun!) if we “talk” with one another through the comment feed.

By the way, have I told you how excited I am that you are joining me for this study? Well, if not, I am. Really, really excited!

Now go get that warm cup of coffee, a pen, and your workbook (listening guide on page 5) and let’s get start “marinating” in the incredible, life-changing truths of Romans!
