E.E. I have learned that I need to know what God has to offer. I have learned so much more from Renee than from just reading my Bible. I have a better understanding of what the verses say and what God meant by these words. Our study of the Revelation time line was a big help in understanding what is to come, and it comes with peace of mind! I am not longer afraid of dying. Prayer time gives me hope and refreshes me. I know Jesus Christ will be there for me, welcoming me with open arms, at the end.
Julie J. I look forward to Bible Study every week. It is so upbeat and joyful. It makes me feel excited that I could have a chance at a new start. Even though I am incarcerated it does not mean that I am not worthy of Gods love. I feel a spiritual connection when I hear the teaching. Scripture is explained in a way that is simpler for me to follow and makes me want to better myself. I hope to be able to continue being involved in other studies when I get out.
R.H. I have been attending Bible Study for a couple of years. It has been an inspiration to me. I feel like I am understood. It has helped me understand the world of darkness, pain and sin can and does have light, love and righteousness. Where there was death in me, now there is life. Hatred turned to love, my sins are forgiven and its ok for me to dream in color. Positive faith is cornerstone to a happy life. I thank our Father God in Heaven for the many blessings I have every day. I am so thankful for this study group.
Agnes R. I have been attending Bible study on and off for the past couple of years. Everything is explained very well. After your first study, it will make you want to come back and learn more. No one is ever turned away. This study has impacted my life so much.
Elena G. I do not feel judged when I come to this Bible Study. The Word is taught so well that even on bad days, I know things will always be ok. I always look forward to coming no matter what. It gives me hope and strength. I love the feeling I have when I leave. Thank the Lord for putting this study in my life.
Shannon M. When I first began my new beginning, I was blessed to encounter this group. It has brought a new light into my life with the Lord. It has taught me about the value of salvation and redemption. It has taught me a new way to start each and every day renewed with Jesus, to continue to run a race to the cross with the Lord. No matter how many times you fall, you must get back up and keep striving for the finish line. God forgives us of our sins immediately and loves us unconditionally. We must forgive ourselves and ask for help for all things through Christ Jesus. With Gods sweet grace, no weapons formed against us shall prosper. This study reminds me to continue to grow in faith and brings hope on gloomy days.
D.R. This study is what I look forward to most all week. Just being there takes away every negative emotion I have had throughout the week. Renees love for God and others is remarkable and inspiring. Her openness and honesty make her so easy to relate to and learn from. This group is so fun and engaging and has changed my life. I hope I can continue to turn to Renee for guidance once I am released.
N.A. My Lord Jesus has been with me all of my life. In the year of 2016, I was on the wrong road using drugs and drinking up until the night I was driving drunk with my kids, nieces and nephews. We rolled on a gravel road. Thank God everyone lived. I got locked up and started going back to church. Jesus never left me. He has helped me to forgive myself and others. I learned to stop living in the past. Every day is a new day, Praise the Lord! I am doing great. I am sober and have a full-time job. My babies are still at home waiting for Mommy to come home. Jesus is in my life every day and night. I cannot go through life without Him. He is so precious and He has changed me.
Chelsea M. I love coming to Bible Study. It has been life changing. Everything in my life has been falling into place. I have two jobs and I just got my own place. I feel stronger and closer to Jesus every day since I started coming to this study. The studies are awesome and heart-touching. It makes me love the Lord so much more.
A.E. This Bible Study emphasizes the love of the Lord so I recognize the blessings of Him in my life every day. We read the Lords words and how much Jesus encountered just for me and everyone else to receive pardon for our sins and never ending grace. When reading of Jesus life and death, I learn to not focus on and minimize my own life struggles and live my life to continue to be humble and kind to people. My life has more blessings than it ever had. I have learned how to pray for others and myself. I look forward to this Bible study every week.
