Over and over, I’ve seen how a consistent Bible study for women is the basis for having the vibrant, purposeful life that Jesus promised in John 10:10.

Why It’s Important for Women to Have a Daily Personal Bible Study (and Not Just Read a Devotional)
Yes, there are some amazing women’s devotionals and women’s Bible studies out there.
However, I strongly believe that every Christian woman needs to know how to understand and apply God’s word to her life–without needing to rely on a women’s devotional or pre-planned women’s Bible study lesson to discover answers.
Think about it: No one else has the exact issues and problems that you’re going through today. God wants to speak to you right where you are, right now, about those issues. And He wants to speak straight from the pages of Scripture!
As Christian women who long to grow closer to God and accomplish His purpose for our lives, we must know how identify the issues we’re having and then know how to study the Bible for specific answers.
We need to know how to access the rich wisdom and truths of scripture, and the only way to do that is to know how to study the Bible effectively.
Because the 5Rs Bible Study Method is simple and easy to remember, I’m convinced that this Bible study method is one of the best ways to do Bible study for women.
Let me teach you (with this FREE 3-session video course) how to create your own women’s Bible study time using the 5Rs Bible Study Method.
I want to explain the method step by step and give you a chance to walk with me together as we look at how to use this effective Bible study method to have a daily quiet time.
FAQ About How to Use This Bible Study Method as Part of Women’s Bible Study
Question: How do I find Bible verses to study for a women’s Bible lesson?
Answer: There are a few ways. You could come up with a list of character traits to study (for example, here’s a list of Bible verses about wisdom) and go through them one at a time.
Or perhaps there’s something specific in your life that you’re really struggling with right now (such as finding joy in spite of chronic illness) and you want to study verses related to that topic.
Besides the two links to the topical Bible verses mentioned above, here are two great posts with lists of themed Bible verses perfect for your daily Bible lesson:

- Ultimate List of Encouraging Bible Verses for Moms
- How to Find Authentic Happiness (Bible Verses About Happiness)
Question: What other resources do you recommend for Bible study for women?
I’ve found that a good study Bible (with a concordance) and a journal are extremely helpful for my daily Bible time with God.
But if you’d like to make your daily women’s Bible study even simpler (or if you’d like to do a Bible study for women with a group of friends), I highly recommend the 5Rs Bible Study™ Journals and Guides.
These are 6-week-long Bible studies that use the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method to analyze a group of 30 Bible verses around a specific topic, such as love or joy.
Here’s an image of the Be Loved 5Rs Bible Study Resources:
The 5Rs Bible Study Journals are pre-designed, full-color journals with a scripture verse (and the 5Rs Bible Study Method) outlined for each day, making daily Bible study for women extremely simple and plug-and-play.
Here’s an example of what the Joy Full 5Rs Bible Study Journal looks like.
This is from page one of week one of the study (notice week one’s subtopic?).
Each day you’ll simply fill out the 5Rs for that verse. Easy!
And because the 30 verses in the Bible Journal study are grouped by subtopic–one subtopic for each of the six weeks of the Bible study–it’s easy for the Bible learning to build day after day.
The 5Rs Bible Study™ Guides, another 5Rs Bible study resource, are the perfect companion to the Journals! The Guides offer additional questions, journaling prompts, more scripture verses to consider and so much more!
Each week of the Guide coincides perfectly with the verses studied each week in the Journal, making the Guides as a perfect resource for those who want to do women’s Bible study as a group.
You’ll can also use these Bible study resources for family Bible time, or to teach your kids about how to study the Bible!

Question: Can I use the 5Rs Bible Study Method™ in a small group womens Bible study?
Absolutely! The 5Rs Bible Study (and the 5Rs Bible Study Resources) are perfect for a group women’s Bible study.
I have women regularly tell me that they’re using the 5Rs Bible Study Resources as the main teaching material for their ladies Bible study group.
However, because the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method itself is a trademarked Bible study method, it cannot be used to create a Bible study outside of your own personal use.
This means that it’s not permissible to create your own Bible study for a group using the 5Rs Bible Study Method.
For example, you cannot create a free study to give away (or to sell) to anyone else, such as on a website; and you can’t create your own study to use with your students in a Christian ministry.
Again, we created the 5Rs Bible Study Resources for those who would like an easy way to use this personal Bible study method for a individual study, or for those who would like to use this easy Bible study method to study the Bible as a group.
Thanks for your help in respecting the trademark on the 5Rs Bible Study™ Method!
