First Timothy invites us to open our heads, hearts, and hands as we open His Word to discover the good deposit of sound doctrine that has been entrusted to each of us. Our study of this pastoral epistle will challenge us to invest and steward these rich gifts to strengthen His Church. Paul shares his wisdom with young Timothy about what covenant life in the Church looks like as men and women serve alongside one another in such a way that the world leans in and looks to see a gospel picture. We will also see how sound doctrine leads to sound and godly living in our homes. It is our prayer that this Bible study will encourage weary women to stand firm and persevere in a corrosive culture for His glory.

You can purchase your print copy at the PCA Bookstore. There is a bulk discount so buy for a group, save the shipping, and have a porch pick up. Currently, the books are available for pre-order and should be ready to ship to have in time for the release of the first video in June.

They will be available at least through 2024.

The teaching videos will be about 20-25 minutes long.

Yes! We invite you to do the study in the summer, fall, or even next spring!

YES and YES! You can do it with women in your church, neighborhood or far away friends. I heard about a group of MTW missionaries who plan to study together and I loved the story of a grandmother who is doing it with her daughter and granddaughter. We have provided helpful tips and discussion questions. You could meet virtually or, Lord willing, in person. You could also do it individually at your own pace.

No! We’d love to have as many join as possible!

On this website, you will see links to weekly teaching videos. A new video will be released each week for 6 weeks in June/July. You can watch them anytime you’d like from the website.

If you are gathering as a group, it would be good to give everyone her copy of the book ahead of time. It works best to interact 3 times with the material: first in reading and answering questions, second in listening to/watching the videos, and third in discussing the small group questions.
