Currently, I am leading a women's Bible study at Calvary Baptist Church in American Canyon. This will be held at the church at 5:30 PM Sunday afternoons, two to three weeks a month.

After each week, I will be posting the study on If you are interested in participating in the study online, you can purchase a book at and follow along. Feel free to leave comments and questions after each post and I'll do my best to answer them.

In preparation for the study, read Joab's Fire and the book of Job. Consider the following questions:

  • When you suffer, how do you react? What are your thoughts toward God and toward those around you? What questions do you ask?
  • How do people, both Christian and non-Christian, view your reaction?
  • When you see others suffer, what is your response? What thoughts run through your mind as to why they might be suffering?
  • How do you treat people who are grieving or hurt? What words do you use, and what actions do you take, when you see them suffer?
  • How do other people, both Christian and non-Christian, view your reactions to other people’s adversities?
  • Can our response to hardships hinder another person’s approach to the throne of God? To salvation?
  • What does sin have to do with suffering?
  • How does our relationship with God affect our perspective on hardships?

Feel free to share your thoughts.
