Welcome to Living Beyond Yourself a Womens Bible Cafe™ study. We’re an international group of women participating in online bible study. We have been praying for you individually by name as you prepare to learn and grow through the next ten weeks of study. May you arrive at this study with a desire to live beyond yourself, in the fruit of the spirit.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 NIV

When I first completed the Living Beyond Yourself, Exploring the Fruit of the Spirit Beth Moore study at church, I met with women of all ages and we sat down at a table filled with scrapbook images, string, glue, and name tags. You guessed right…we created Fruit of the Spirit name tags for our study. In keeping with the tradition, you’ll be seeing images of fruit throughout this online study, as a reminder of the lessons we read and the fellowship we have with one another. If you want to place a name tag on your blog, feel free to copy and link to the button we created just for this study. A smaller version appears at the end of this article.

If This Is Your First Online Study

You’ll want a little direction if this is your first online study. We’ll read a week at a time, and each Tuesday you can visit the blog anytime and participate in the group discussions. We’ll list some discussion questions and you can answer all of them or as many as you want. If you are not posting on the blog, we will send you an email and check in to see what’s getting in the way of your study. Please read these blog posts and feel free to ask questions. Don’t be shy…your questions benefit the entire group.
