  1. Thank you Diana for this inspiration and information about study resources. I too believe that God is in control and He is our only completely trustworthy provider. Blessings to you and your familly.

  2. Oh my sister in the Lord, thank you for investing in me and so many others! It's always an encouragement to come to your channel ๐Ÿ™Œ praise God for your generous heart and praying for you ๐Ÿ™

  3. If you prayerfully prepare, there is no "scrambling" to provide for yourself. Prepping is not to be mistaken for hoarding. God sent Joseph to Egypt to attain a position of power in order to preserve his family. While there during the 7 years of abundance, he was inspired to store grain in the cities beyond measure, & it saved them during the famine. Being prepared does not mean you aren't relying on God!

  4. Thank you, Diana! I am loving your channel. I have watched Dawn at "The Minimal Mom" for years and always love it when you two get together. Your enthusiasm for the Word is contagious and makes me want to dig deeper. I have tried other on-line study tools and didn't like them much, but I am going to give StudyLight a try. Please be encouraged and continue putting out great content. I pray you have much success with your channel. God bless you!!

  5. Iโ€™m doing this same Bible study and had the same exact thoughts, itโ€™s very long! I felt overwhelmed by it and then decided to slow down and just enjoy what Iโ€™m studying and learning.

  6. Is the green floral and brown Bible in this video a study Bible? If it is, would you be able to link or tell me where to find the Bible in this video? I have had one exactly like that on the cover but it isnโ€™t a study Bible and I am always torn between that one and my study Bible.

  7. Thank you for sharing with us! I love your excitement, and am looking forward to learning more and more with you. I've watched your sister for a long time, and am so grateful that God led you to do this. God bless you! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™

  8. Wowzer! Thank you so much for this video, Diana! I am starting a ladies Bible study group and needed to know these tips and resources! Please continue these type of videos! Thank you for being mindful of cost etc for resources. So excited to use this website and that book!!

  9. This morning there was a knock at my door. When I answered the door I found a well groomed, nicely dressed couple. The man spoke first:

    "Hi! I'm John, and this is Mary."

    Mary: "Hi! We're here to invite you to come kiss

    Hank's ass with us."

    Me: "Pardon me?! What are you talking about?

    Who's Hank, and why would I want to kiss his ass?"

    John: "If you kiss Hank's ass, he'll give you a

    million dollars; and if you don't, he'll kick the

    shit out of you."

    Me: "What? Is this some sort of bizarre mob


    John: "Hank is a billionaire philanthropist. Hank built this town.

    Hank owns this town. He can do what ever he wants, and what he wants is to

    give you a million dollars, but he can't until you kiss his ass."

    Me: "That doesn't make any sense. Why…"

    Mary: "Who are you to question Hank's gift? Don't you want a million dollars?

    Isn't it worth a little kiss on the ass?"

    Me: "Well maybe, if it's legit, but…"

    John: "Then come kiss Hank's ass with us."

    Me: "Do you kiss Hank's ass often?"

    Mary: "Oh yes, all the time…"

    Me: "And has he given you a million dollars?"

    John: "Well no, you don't actually get the money until you leave town."

    Me: "So why don't you just leave town now?"

    Mary: "You can't leave until Hank tells you to, or you don't get the money, and he kicks the shit out of you."

    Me: "Do you know anyone who kissed Hank's ass, left town,

    and got the million dollars?"

    John: "My mother kissed Hank's ass for years. She left town last year,

    and I'm sure she got the money."

    Me: "Haven't you talked to her since then?"

    John: "Of course not, Hank doesn't allow it."

    Me: "So what makes you think he'll actually give you the money if you've

    never talked to anyone who got the money?"

    Mary: "Well, he gives you a little bit before you leave.

    Maybe you'll get a raise, maybe you'll win a small lotto,

    maybe you'll just find a twenty dollar bill on the street."

    Me: "What's that got to do with Hank?

    John: "Hank has certain 'connections.'"

    Me: "I'm sorry, but this sounds like some sort of bizarre con game."

    John: "But it's a million dollars, can you really take the chance? And remember,

    if you don't kiss Hank's ass he'll kick the shit of you."

    Me: "Maybe if I could see Hank, talk to him, get the details straight from him…"

    Mary: "No one sees Hank, no one talks to Hank."

    Me: "Then how do you kiss his ass?"

    John: "Sometimes we just blow him a kiss, and think of his ass.

    Other times we kiss Karl's ass, and he passes it on."

    Me: "Who's Karl?"

    Mary: "A friend of ours. He's the one who taught us all about kissing Hank's ass.

    All we had to do was take him out to dinner a few times."

    Me: "And you just took his word for it when he said there was a Hank,

    that Hank wanted you to kiss his ass, and that Hank would reward you?"

    John: "Oh no! Karl's got a letter Hank sent him years ago explaining the whole thing.

    Here's a copy; see for yourself."

    John handed me a photocopy of a handwritten memo on From the desk of Karl

    letterhead. There were eleven items listed:

    1.Kiss Hank's ass and he'll give you a million dollars when you leave town.

    2.Use alcohol in moderation.

    3.Kick the shit out of people who aren't like you.

    4.Eat right.

    5.Hank dictated this list himself.

    6.The moon is made of green cheese.

    7.Everything Hank says is right.

    8.Wash your hands after going to the bathroom.

    9.Don't drink.

    10.Eat your wieners on buns, no condiments.

    11.Kiss Hank's ass or he'll kick the shit out of you.

    Me: "This would appear to be written on Karl's letterhead."

    Mary: "Hank didn't have any paper."

    Me: "I have a hunch that if we checked we'd find this is Karl's handwriting."

    John: "Of course, Hank dictated it."

    Me: "I thought you said no one gets to see Hank?"

    Mary: "Not now, but years ago he would talk to some people."

    Me: "I thought you said he was a philanthropist. What sort of philanthropist

    kicks the shit out of people just because they're different?"

    Mary: "It's what Hank wants, and Hank's always right."

    Me: "How do you figure that?"

    Mary: "Item 7 says 'Everything Hanks says is right.' That's good enough for me!"

    Me: "Maybe your friend Karl just made the whole thing up."

    John: "No way! Item 5 says 'Hank dictated this list himself.' Besides, item 2

    says 'Use alcohol in moderation,' Item 4 says 'Eat right,' and item 8 says 'Wash your hands after

    going to the bathroom.' Everyone knows those things are right, so the rest must be true, too."

    Me: "But 9 says 'Don't Drink,' which doesn't quite go with item 2, and 6 says

    'The moon is made of green cheese,' which is just plain wrong."

    John: "There's no contradiction between 9 and 2, 9 just clarifies 2.

    As far as 6 goes, you've never been to the moon, so you can't say for sure."

    Me: "Scientists have pretty firmly established that the moon is made of rock…"

    Mary: "But they don't know if the rock came from the Earth, or from out of space,

    so it could just as easily be green cheese."

    Me: "I'm not really an expert, but I think the theory that the Moon came from the

    Earth has been discounted. Besides, not knowing where the rock came from doesn't make it cheese."

    John: "Aha! You just admitted that scientists make mistakes, but we know Hank

    is always right!"

    Me: "We do?"

    Mary: "Of course we do, Item 5 says so."

    Me: "You're saying Hank's always right because the list says so, the list

    is right because Hank dictated it, and we know that Hank dictated it because the list says so.

    That's circular logic, no different than saying 'Hank's right because he says he's right.'"

    John: "Now you're getting it! It's so rewarding to see someone come around to Hank's way of thinking."

    Me: "But…oh, never mind. What's the deal with wieners?"

    Mary blushes. John says: "Wieners, in buns, no condiments. It's Hank's way.

    Anything else is wrong."

    Me: "What if I don't have a bun?"

    John: "No bun, no wiener. A wiener without a bun is wrong."

    Me: "No relish? No Mustard?"

    Mary looks positively stricken. John shouts: "There's no need for such language!

    Condiments of any kind are wrong!"

    Me: "So a big pile of sauerkraut with some wieners chopped up in it would be

    out of the question?"

    Mary sticks her fingers in her ears: "I am not listening to this. La la la,

    la la, la la la."

    John: "That's disgusting. Only some sort of evil deviant would eat that…"

    Me: "It's good! I eat it all the time."

    Mary faints. John catches her: "Well, if I'd known you were one of those sick people

    I wouldn't have wasted my time. When Hank kicks the shit out of you I'll be there,

    counting my money and laughing. I'll kiss Hank's ass for you, you bunless

    cut-wienered kraut-eater."

    With this, John dragged Mary to their waiting car, and sped off.

  10. โค๏ธAwesome study. Love the comparison of the cistern and the well. So thankful for the Well of Living Water, The Holy Ghost.
    Even when Jesus spoke to the woman at the well, He spoke of giving her water whereby she would never thirst again. John 7:38,39
    He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
    But this spake He if the spirit which they that believe in Him should later receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because Jesus was not yet glorified. Jesus said I am with you but I shall be in youโ€ฆ

  11. So excited to learn about new โ€œhelpsโ€ to study the Bible. What is the name of the book Proverbs 31 study guide? Trying to find it on Amazon. Thanks for your insights and inspiration to dig deeper. I am almost 74 years old, wife, mother to 3 adult children, have 6 precious grandchildren and one adorable great grandson, a retired nurse. Married for almost 55 years. Been a Christian for 53+ years and learning more about Godโ€™s love through His Word every day. Still have so much to learn. Love watching you and Dawn on You Tube. Thank you so much for sharing Christ with me and so many others.

  12. Thank you Diana for your excitement and passion for the Word! I love it! I am doing the proverbs study and agree with you that this could be a monthโ€™s long study. So much information! Keep up the encouragement to us!

  13. Thank you Diana๐Ÿ’– Those are some wonderful resources! My favorite commentary is by Matthew Henryโค๏ธ but I am interested in checking out some others also๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

  14. Very good word about prepping! I agree, I have thought about it that no matter how much we could prepare, we would undoubtedly forget something or not be able to provide for long enough or maybe it would get too old or rodents would get in it, or whatever. I think itโ€™s a good idea to prepare for a job loss or power outage or something more short term, but thinking we can provide everything for years for our future family is kind of in the realm of hewing out cisterns for ourselves. Thanks for sharing about this Bible study website. I have used Blue Letter Bible a lot, but not this one.

  15. Thank you for sharing this. I am so anxious to start using these resources in my devotional time. I want to know God more/better and not just look at my quiet time as, โ€œWhat can I get out of this?โ€ Digging deeper, not just scratching the surface of Godโ€™s word!

  16. Thank you for your channel, Diana! Thank you for your prayers, your advice, your resources you give all so freely. I live in Canada and the book/guide to ship was more than the book so I really appreciate your videos. I did buy a book on Amazon โ€œDiscovering Jesus in the Od Testamentโ€ that I hope will be helpful but Study Light will be a great resource. Your enthusiasm, joy and faith are contagious and I feel blessed to have you guide us along the way. May God bless your ministry (for which I will be praying) and your family and Dawnโ€™s as well. Hugs from Canada โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

  17. Thank you so much. I am in the mist of another study but will add this book to my list ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I have not heard of this tool and was looking forward to this video since you mentioned it having William Barclay. Now I can copy and paste him in my notes instead of typing. What a time saver. Thank you. I would love to see a video on your note taking system. I just started using Obsidian to tie all mine together
