Want to study the Bible but not sure where to start? I’ve felt like that more times than I would like to admit. Throughout the years, I have been looking for and trying out as many Bible study resources as I’ve had time for.
And I’m really excited to share some of my favorite resources with you!
(If you have a resource you think I’d like to check out, or it simply NEEDS to be added to this list, please leave me a comment!)

My Favorite Bible Study Resources
This is the Bible I regularly use. Mine is imitation leather, but you can also get it in paperback and hardback (both are much cheaper).
You can also find Life Application Bibles in
Bible Study Tools
Women of the Word is my favorite book to learn how to really study the Bible! I think every Christian woman (and man) should read it!
“We all know it’s important to study God’s Word.
But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. What’s more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible?”

HelloMornings – Small group based study that focuses on starting your mornings off right. Each study is 6 weeks, and you study alongside other women.
Whole Magazine – Each month Whole Magazine puts out a free Scripture writing study. You can join their free Facebook group for discussion, too! (These studies are perfect for Write the Word!)

My Favorite Journal
I’m a big fan of Moleskine journals. I love the ribbon bookmark and the elastic closure. And I know they will last years — both for me to have a log of my studies and to pass down as a legacy to my children. (If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of writing the Word, download the free guide!)
My Favorite Pens
I’m a tad bit obsessed with colored pens. I only write with black if I have to, or if I know I’m going to mark up the text with a bunch of color. So far, these pens are my favorite. And unless I’m doing a lot of doodling or coloring in, they don’t bleed through the pages of my Moleskine.
