YES to GOD study sign up

You know how some people are just impossible to work with?

Well, I don't mean to brag but I'm afraid I must.

I really, really love my co-worker...

Even when she does this to my Sharpie markers...

Overall, she is a really hard worker...

and is always looking for more work

(to slobber on)...

She has a fun side to her...

but she also knows when to be serious...

And during our meetings she always pays attention...

The only complaint I have
that some days...

She's real lazy

Amiyah Elizabeth. I am loving being this little one's Grandma!
This precious little bundle of sweetness, definitely brings much JOY not only into my office but into my life!

Okay, WHO is doing the next YES to GOD book study of Lisa Whittle's "Behind Those Eyes" right here starting on Tuesday, September 23rd?

If you have any questions click here and read the study FAQ's.
Don't worry if you don't get your book by the 23rd, join in any time. Below, sign up if you know you are joining us so we can "mingle" with each other by visiting each other's blogs before the study starts.
Don't have a blog?
Still leave your name under Mr. Linky, but leave the URL line blank. Then in the comments section leave your e-mail address.
If you want to be a silent participant, so be it!
This study is for everyone and the height of your involvement is up to you!
This weekend if you have time, do some blog hopping and get to know one another.

Have an awesome weekend and remember that no matter what you are facing whether it is good or whether it's a trial...choose to PRAISE.
Lavish your King with praises.
He's deserving and He's One we know can be trusted!

One more August, my Mom Linda had surgery on her wrist. Last weekend she wanted to cook dinner for her mother's 79th birthday and while getting things ready, she fell outside on the concrete. On her wrist. She scraped up her hand and the hand connected to the wrist the surgeon just fixed is swollen and the pain is intense. The night she fell she was home alone with 3 small kids while my Dad was at work. She called my sister and asked her to take the kids and the food to her parents for her while my Dad took her to the ER. No broken bones, but the pain and swelling is really taking its toll on her. She works during the day and then is trying to take care of 3 kids under the age of 8, one which is a 6 month old (my parents do foster care).

Would you please say a prayer for her?

I just think that Satan has such a hay day with us when we get down and out and I'd be blessed to know she's being lifted up to Jesus by someone like you.

Thank you & God bless you.
~Many Blessings~


Paula said...

Hey there Lelia! I'm in! But you already know that.

Am I excited? Yes, YES and YES!

I can't wait, Paula :-)

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

Those pictures are so precious! How cute is she!?!?!

I'm really hoping to join in the study...I've got a few other irons in the fire right now, but I'll decide soon and let you know.

LynnSC said...

Hi Lelia,

I'm in on the study!! I can't wait. Being real is one of my heart's desires for God's people. We can do so much more for God when we are honest and real.

I already have my book... waiting patiently, well, sort of.

Mari said...

I'm definitely in. Already have my book. I'm ready to go. I'm even tossing away the toe guards!

Can I borrow your co-worker. What cuteness! I know she does snuggles. That alone would trump the slobbering and laziness anyday! If I ever get out your way I'm coming over for hours of snuggles and hugs from Amiyah!

heartreflections said...

I have been silently watching many of you go through Lysa's book. I finished it a while back with my "real life(!)" study group. So, I am thrilled to join in with Behind the Eyes.

And your daughter is adorable!

Kim@Seasons of My Heart said...

Oh..such sweetness...that little co-worker of yours!!

Yes, I'm praying for your Mom.

You'll be so excited Lelia..this time I found the Bible Study book at my local christian bookstore, so I'm good to go to join!

I'm SO excited.

AnooCre8ion said...

I do enjoy visiting both your blog and Lisa's blog, so I have signed up to join in the study. Don't have my book yet but I will definitely try to have it by the time the study starts.

BTW, what a cutie pie you have there. Nice pics..


Jill said...

Looking forward to this! I loved your words about Him being worthy of our praise - I needed the reminder today, thanks.

Carol said...

I found you through Lisa's blog, I have my book, and am excited to do this study, and get to know everyone.

Jodie said...

I'm excited to finally say "Yes to God" on Tuesdays! I started reading your blog about the middle of the study you just finished, What Happens When Women Walk in Faith, and thrilled to be able to participate in this next one. Looking forward to all of what the Lord will reveal to us. Thank you for being the host.

Amiyah's pictures are very precious and so cute!! ...and, I love the sign! I think I need to post such a sign in my office!

Paula (SweetPea) said...

I'm in, of course.

Love, love the pics and your comments to go along with each one.

What a blessing and treasure. Just like you.

Hope you got me email earlier this week or sometime...I forget now. Short and sweet about YOU!

Love ya,

Christy said...

Looking forward to this study and the opportunity to make connections with all these women!

hkudla said...

I can't wait! I am so excited. I just got my book today and am thrilled... i can already tell it is going to be great...
Love you... and oh how that little girl is growing!!! so fast! :) She is such a cutie... and what eyes she has!

Naomi said...

I'm so sorry for your Mum... I will keep her in my prayers. Bless her heart! What an incredible woman she is!!!

I am SO SO SO glad to see pics of Amiyah! I was beginning to miss her delightful face. I so wish you were a scrap-booker and we lived close (for alot of other reasons), cos that would be one gorgeous page of photos and journalling!!! Squeeze her gently for me...

I will be keeping up with the study too, but I'll be one of those silent types...

Hey, just quietly... isn't this your birthday month?!!!

Sandra said...

Hi Lelia,

Amiyah is so adorable. I know how you feel. My heart just swells with love for my grandbaby, too. I couldn't have imagined I could love my grandbaby so much as my own but I do. I won't be joining this study because I'm right smack in the middle of studying the bible using Kay Arthur's inductive study method starting with Genesis. There is so much to glean using this method. I've filled pages and pages of notes, lists and insights and I'm only on Genesis 4! I pray many blessings for you and the girls doing this next study.


HIS Daughter said...

Thank you for allowing me to study with all of you.
No Other Gods was my first online study and I loved it!
Praying for your sweet Mom. What a precious spirit she has!
Your grandbaby is a beautiful child!
Love and blessings,

nothingcanseparateme said...

Oh that babygirl is precious!!!
What wonderful working conditions you have!!!

I am waiting for my "Behind those eyes" book to arrive any day now. I am excited to join in. I have followed along with your other studies but never purchased the book in time. Can't wait!!

Susan said...

Ahhh, what a precious worker you have!!

You are so creative, this was precious.

I'll be dropping by on Tuesdays for sure.

I'm doing 2 bible studies now, with lots of homework weekly.

I'll join in on your next one, I PROMISE...

Love you~

Kelley said...

Oh you know I want to do this but I don't have the book and CBS keeps me so busy. I hate missing out though!!

As for your co-worker she would almost make me want to work outside the home. And to think, you are getting paid to do that job. I would say you are one lucky lady and your "co worker" is one lucky baby!!

Joyfulsister said...

Hi Lelia,
She is precious, bless her heart, must be hard to get things done at work, I know I would be cuddling all day long lol. I have 3 grandsons one just born a couple of months ago, I love them so, I can't wait for a grand daughter one day!! I will keep your mom in prayer, just wanted to drop by and say heloo!!

Heather said...

Hi, Lelia!

Super cute pics of your co-worker!

Hey, i meant to leave a comment the other day - or say something to Gene & you at church - but about his back situation, i was gonna tease that if he wants more sausage cheese balls, there's gotta be an easier way to get 'em! hehe...

Hope you have a wonderful week!

elaine @ peace for the journey said...

Is she the most precious companion ever?! I'm so glad that God has given her to you in this season of living.

I'd love to join in on the study. Great book by a great woman who has a heart and passion for seeing us all live as authentic before God and humanity.

Thanks for doing this...


Pat said...

I was blog surfing and came across your bible study page. When I went to my Christian book store it was the last copy on the shelf so figured it was a "God Thing". I do not currently have a blog but my email is and I am looking forward to doing this Study.

Liz said...

I have my book and I am ready to go! I am so grateful to be able to join in this time.

Amiyah is getting so big! And more beautiful too! I am glad that she is such a good girl to work with! :)

tiggerdaisy said...

Hey girl! What a CUTIE PATOOTIE of a co-worker!?!?!?

Can't wait for this next study...sorry I've been MIA the past few weeks. Really sorry!

Talk to you soon!

jillian4 said...

Very ready to start this study as well:):) I am ready to open my heart and receive all that God has for us during this study.....

Laura said...

Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!

valerie said...

Our church ladies just started "Discerning The Voice of God" for our fall Bible study.
I'd love to do this one with y'all if I were not already in a study.

You have an adorable co-worker!
I can't get over how much she's grown! Maybe one of these days in the not so distant future I'll be a grandma. :) I sure can't wait.
Love ya Lelia,

On Purpose said...

What an adorable blessing and gift...she is a doll...I wish I could just reach through the screen and pinch her cute little cheeks!!!

I am praying tonight for you as you "ramp up" for this new book study!

Also praying for your mom...what Satan intended to do for evil, God will make it all good!

Have a great day tomorrow!

Jenny said...

I have that same sign in my office! What a hoot. Of course, I don't have a cutie pie to work with.

Have a good week!

Shabby Olde Potting Shed said...

Hey Miss Lelia! ;)
Greetings and Holykisses,
How's your Momma today? Praying for a speedy recovery for her!
Tickles to Amiyah!
I have my book and am trying to NOT read on ahead. LOL
Love Lea

rusty'swife said...

Hi Lelia,

I just found your blog through a weird and winding path led by God. I will pick up the book and be ready to start with you on the 23rd. I can't wait to see what God has in store for us.


Heather Pressley said...

I dont currently have a blog but I found out about this study through a friend of a friends blog- neat huh! I ordered my book and look forward to the online bible study. My email address is Thanks! Heather Pressley

Leebird said...

Looking forward to the study! I have a soft spot for you because you share a name with my grandmother, Lelia Wright Maxwell...a master of chocolate pies, black-eyed peas and cornbread, and hugs that cut off the circulation. I miss her immensely! She passed in 1993 when I was pregnant with my first child. I hate my boys never got to experience Granny Maxwell.

Sharon said...

Those pictures are adorable, must be really hard getting work done, watching her beautiful face, and listening to those beautiful sounds coming out of her voice.
How innocent and pure!
God Bless

Darlene said...

I have my book! Thank you for your willingness to connect all of these sisters in Christ, and for leading the study!
PS ADORABLE grandbaby!! just adorable.

Michelle said...

What an adorable co-worker! I'm looking forward to this study and visiting the new and familiar blogs of the participants. Keeping your family in my prayers. Blessings!

Regina said...

OK! I'm going to go buy my book right now (

I can't wait. When I read what this book was about over at Lisa Whittle's blog I knew I had to sign up.

God began a new work in me a year or so ago and it has everything to do with "being real". So I cannot pass up the opportunity to do this study with all of you ladies. I know He has something wonderful to teach me.

YAY! Can't wait!

Cricket said...

Learned of blog Bible study through Teri (Hisdaughter)who I've worked with for the last 6 years.


Jean said...

Hi! My name is Jean, and I'm from Oklahoma.. I've decided to join, but don't have my book yet.. If Amazon has it, I'll have it in a day or two. I hope to learn and change into more of what God wants me to be!
I have a Spaces blog and a Blogspot blog that isn't always updated.. :-)

Keli said...

Hello! Is it to late to join? Cute co-worker, by the way! : )

Nancy Holte said...

Hey Lelia, where do I buy the book? It looks like a great study.

Heather said...

I have joined the study earlier and just recently started up my blog again so wanted to be able to link. Thanks Heather Pressley

sherry said...

Lea at the ShabbyOldePottingShed told me about the book, and I saw her post on Chapter 1, I ordered my book, got it, and have started reading it. I will try to catch up and be ready when next Tuesday rolls around. I am excited to participate. My eyes scream words my mouth won't say, I wish I could put a muzzle on my eyes....

Mary said...

I just love, love, love this book! It absolutely rocks!

Eveie said...

I have been looking for an online place for spiritual study and fellowship. I really do not know what to do next other than join you in Praise of the Most High and Holy God and His Son Jesus, precious, precious Jesus. My comment is this for all of you blessed new Christian friends I now have: Salvation is at the fron of the cross and healing is at the back of the same cross where he hung there to bear those deep and hurtful stripes for you and me. I ask for your prayers NOW. Pattie is in CCU, the lie of Cancer has not spread anywhere. In the name of Jesus Christ, please pray that Pattie's lungs will be healed. She has the right to live and live in prosperity. Her husband also lost his job, my brother, real brother. Please pray and agree with me in Jesus' name, Thank You Father for not what You do but for Who you are!
Please tell me what I need to do to hook up with you and my fellow brothers and sisters. Please! I need your fellowship, please. Eveie
