What if there's more to God's plan for your life?

A Season of Sowing

Cultivating a Life of Purpose One Prayer at a Time
"Heather lives what she believes and teaches. Her servant heart carefully unpacks Scripture to explain it in a beautiful, yet profound, understandable, and relatable way."
- Rhonda Bolling, Author and Photographer

What Kind of Impact Will You Make with Your One Life?

What if finding meaning and purpose is much simpler than we think?
 
What if God really did create you to change the world for the better?
 
I think He did. 
And I'd LOVE the chance to prove it to you. 

Because of Jesus, I'm living a life of purpose. I'm so very thankful.

"Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share." 1 Timothy 6:18
 
All of the materials for this study are available to you for free, but I've found that many of my students prefer to purchase a paperback copy of the Study Guide and Prayer Journal. It's important to me to live what I teach. I want to help people experience the love of Christ for themselves.
 
That's why I'm giving 35% of the royalties from sales of the Season of Sowing paperback to help bring clean water to people in need through Wells for the World.
 

Does this sound familiar?

  • Feeling restless even though you're commited to your relationship with God.
  • Worrying you'll miss God's call on your life.
  • Unsure of what God is asking you to do. You know you're called to something, but what? 
  • Longing to make a difference with the one life you've been given.
  • Ready to say yes to God and His plan for your life.

Then you're in the right place.

How Does It Work?

A Season of Sowing kicks off on June 25th.
 
Following the kickoff, a new teaching video will be posted once a week inside our online Bible study community. The journal will provide you with daily Scripture reading, prayer prompts and a step-by-step guide to help you find your calling in Christ.
 
A typical week looks something like this...
  • 10
    Minutes

    1. Watch the Teaching Video

    Start off each week with a video teaching either on your own or with a group of friends.  In these short videos rooted in Scritpture, Heather will share some of the struggles and challenges she faced as she stepped out of the safe, comfortable life she was building and learned to lean in and trust God to lead her toward a life of purpose.
  • 30
    Minutes

    2. Discussion

    Each weekly video will include topics for discussion to help you dig into God's Word and discover how to apply His truth to your life. Students are encouraged to share their thoughts inside the Online Community and with their small groups.
  • 5
    Minutes

    3. Daily Scripture Reading

    Each day we will read a selected scripture passage related to the topic of the week. This study is unique in that the reading and reflection time is spent directly in God's Word and His story, not the author's experiences.  
  • 5
    Minutes

    4. Daily Prayer Prompt

    This study is centered on the idea that prayer is essential to living a life of purpse. We'll spend time each day in prayer guided by unique prayer prompts designed to help us clarify God's will for our lives.

Hi. I'm Heather.

When I'm not filling a page with words or studying Scripture, you'll find me behind my camera, journaling, observing nature or homeschooling my three daughters. My love for people and travel has led to a passion for missions as well.

I've been walking with Jesus since I gave my heart to Him in my college dorm room 15 years ago, which led to more than a decade in small groups and Sunday school classes as both a teacher and a student.

When my family moved to a new town, I longed for the encouragement, wisdom and connection I shared with the women of the small group I left behind.

As I looked further, I found that I was one of many women searching for a place to study God's Word, grow and connect with other women doing the same despite our crazy schedules and responsibilities to our families and careers.

That's why I created Beautiful Bible Studies.

This community is an answer to my prayers. It's a place where we can grow closer to God, encourage one another and study His Word during any season of life.

When the Lord laid it on my heart to start an online Bible study for women, I had no idea what an amazing journey lay ahead of me. I'm blessed and honored to be a small part of what the Lord is doing in the lives of thousands of women around the world through the miracle of the internet.

I'm the author of four Bible studies and many devotions and encouraging articles on Christian life. My writing has been featured in dozens of publications in print and on the web including some you may know:

  • Proverbs 31 Ministries
  • (In)courage
  • Crosswalk
  • iBelieve
  • Bible Gateway
  • The Bible Advocate
  • Now What Ezine
  • Missions Launch 
  • Devotions for the Deaf
  • And more...

I'm thankful and blessed to walking with Jesus. Loving and serving Him means everything to me.

Let's do this!

There are 92 days this summer. What will you do with them?
