God Who Are You? Bible Study

An online Bible study is getting underway this week! If you stumbled into my little blog, you can learn more about the study, download the study guide and view the weekly video here.... I am anxious to join in as I really feel the need for feeding from God's Word. It is funny how I can be involved in ministry and lead ministry and even studies, yet I don't seem satisfied. Perhaps it is my own weakness that I don't take the time I need to really commune with God. I am getting chapters read and notes made for the next meeting. It has all become just another to do on my endless lists. My prayer is that this study will be a time without deadlines, a time when I can escape for a little while to the computer to watch the video and then spend my few minutes of quite time thinking, reading and praying about who God is amd how He fits into my life.

I am Mary Lynn, a so called stay-at-home mom of two (ages 4 and 6), Little Man is still at home and busting with energy and enthusiasm for all things mechanical, bouncing, and with wheels. Little Princess is in kindergarten. She is a very good student but would prefer to be home wearing her tiaras and playing with most things girlie- growing up is hard - for her and mommy. I am married for the last 18 years to my Prince Charming and best friend. I consider myself extremely blessed with a wonderful family. Currently, I keep way too busy with leading a MOPS ministry. I am retiring after this year as my season of life is changing rapidly. The majority of my "free" time is spent leading the early childhood ministry at our growing church. Getting everyone scheduled, and getting worship and small groups set up for Sunday services is a full time job. I have been put in a place where I can serve and influence in an area that I feel passionate about. However, I often feel torn between being a better mom and wife without the distractions and obligations elsewhere and using the talents and opportunities God has given me to lead other children to a life changing relationship with their forever friend, Jesus. My prayer is that I will be able to intentionally take time each week to watch the video and make the time of reflection and prayer a priority.


  1. Hi, it is very nice to meet you! I look forward to getting to know you better during this study!

  2. Mary Lynn,

    So nice to have you join us! Welcome!


  3. I have been where you are. I totally get what it's like to give and give and plan and plan all the while desiring to know God more but in the end feeling completely empty.

    Oh, sweet sister...I am fervently praying for you. I am praying for time set aside throughout your days to bask in God's glory; time to sit at His feet allowing Him to love on you and fill you up. I am praying that He is not a to-do list but a can't live without necessity in your day.

    I look foward to getting to know you more over the next several weeks and I can't wait to see all that God does in your life.

    If you have questions or comments about week 1 be sure to email them to me by Friday, Feb. 12th at

    Know, too, that I am here for you praying for you. May God continue to bless you as you seek after Him.

    By His Grace,

  4. I know how you feel. You are pulled in so many different directions that sometimes it's hard to find alone time with God. It is something I struggle with often, being the mother of 4, 3 of whom are still at home. I'm looking forward to getting to know you over the next few weeks as we grow in Christ together!
