A Confident Heart

This post is a bit off the track I’ve taken so far, then again, it’s not off topic. We’re working on ‘navigating a new way’ and this definitely applies.

Moving to a new area brings with it several challenges, one of which is to find a worship community. That hasn’t been easy here on St Thomas. This week I am embarking on a new journey; an online Bible study through the Proverbs 31 Ministries (http://proverbs31.org/online-bible-studies/) called A Confident Heart. It’s a new adventure and a new way.

Excited Newbie

This is my first online Bible study. In July, my husband and I retired. In August we sold everything, including our home, and are now transients, or ‘homeless’ as some affectionately call us. Since then we’ve been spending time with our adult children and their families in Mill Creek WA, Portland, OR and now St Thomas, USVI. We plan to continue traveling for the next few years. Next stop Merida, Mx.

Finding a worship community or a way to remain grounded in our faith without a specific physical church is one of the new challenges we are navigating. When I heard about the Proverbs 31 online Bible study I was excited to learn of a place where I can be guided through a Bible study, do it on my schedule and join with other women who love Jesus. We are designed to be in community, to share, encourage, support, nurture and grow together in our love for each other and the Lord. This will be a great opportunity and a new adventure to navigate. Many thanks to the many women who have designed and continue to work on this project.

  1. Well what an adventure of retiring and selling everything and travelling. Blessings on your journey and the adventure to old and new places. God does supply our needs and P31 Ministies is a great way to dig deep into God’s word at your own pace and time. Welcome to OBS A Confident heart. God will bless you and cause you to grow and provide fellowship with many women from around the world. Prayers as you trust God to lead you in this new season of life.

  2. Wow! Sounds like you’ve been busy and having LOTS of fun!. It must be hard not having a consistent place to worship. OBS is a GREAT way to connect with some amazing women. It’s almost unbelievable how connected one can become in an online Bible study. 🙂 This is my 2nd study and I still feel like an “excited newbie” 🙂

  3. Welcome to the Confident Heart study!

    So glad to see you there 🙂

    God bless you


  4. Let me know how it goes for you. I thought of you both today as Art and I ushered.
    Keep looking, there has to be a little church somewhere. love ya sis

    • There seem to be several Episcopal churches on island. The big one downtown posts the sermons online. I listened to one yesterday. Pretty traditional message. Looks like they have some good stuff going on. Might try them next week.

      There’s an old Lutheran church downtown, the official church of the Danish West Indies built in 1793. It’s part of the walking historical tour. They have a church office (locked but a woman behind the desk). They have the beginnings of a web page but no info. I called their phone number and have never heard back. How’s that for welcoming?

      It’s interesting. The free online Bible study will be good.

      Love you, K
