  1. Good Evening,
    I just attended the LifeWay Women’s Leadership Conference in Nashville. You were great and I just watched your intro videos we signed up for! WOW very helpful to me the newbie!! I did buy all 5 of your study guides and want to make sure I don’t get too overwhelmed but also get a good habit formed and good understanding of your technique but also the Bible its self and the story/lesson learned. Which version of your study guide should I start with?
