Dayton Women in the Word

Happy Wednesday!

If you have been following me here for any amount of time, I’m sure you’ve heard me mention Dayton Women in the Word.

Dayton Women in the Word is a group of women who have gathered together to bring God’s Word to the women of Dayton- and beyond. They produce a podcast, host a local Bible study,  provide a plethora of resources on their blog…oh, and did I mention that they have a blog?!?

I have had the privilege of meeting many of the women who make up the leadership team of Dayton Women in the Word and I have been nothing but impressed by their hearts of service to the Lord.

A few months ago I received two special emails from this team asking me to come on board their team. Due to the craziness of our life, I wasn’t able to commit to a position on the team, but I was delighted to be interviewed for the podcast and took on a role as a blogger for the Dayton Women in the Word blog!

Today my first post is live- I’m not going to lie, it was rather intimidating! Dayton Women in the Word is challenging women both here and all around the world to read through the Bible in a year. Each week, a blog contributor writes a post that dives a little deeper into that week’s Scripture reading.

This week’s Scripture is Leviticus 17-Numbers 4 and I spent a lot of time focusing on the Day of Atonement!

You can head on over to the Dayton Women in the Word blog to read the rest!

Many influencers are trying their hardest to bring in an income for their family. They are hustling and working and trying to produce the best content for their readers.
