Need a New Bible Study? I Have a Deal...
by Jen Hatmaker on January 7th, 2013

It’s January 7th, which means a bunch of us have eaten raw spinach and quinoa this week, made a new chore chart, rewrote our vows, or have read the Bible for seven straight days for the first time since last January. Some people, I’ve heard, are even making a “Kind Words” jar where sassy children can make deposits to cash in for rewards or, more likely, withdrawals for saying such things to their brother like, “You smell like a diaper that’s been left in a hot car.” I’ve heard about a family like this.
 
It’s just that time to think about new beginnings.
 
Coming off the hustle and bustle and consumption of Christmas, I know many of my fellow travelers feel a little beleaguered, sort of worn down by the “too much” of it all yet again. Our new stuff is still strewed all over the house, struggling to compete for space with all the old stuff we still have. Half the gifts are already forgotten or shoved aside. Some folks are opening dreaded credit card bills, and the shine has come plumb off.
 
Is 2013 the year we live lighter, freer, more simply on this earth?

Is this the year we break free from the machine and find a whole new kind of abundance?

 
I want to help. I’m kicking off this year with a deal. 2012 was an incredible year to share “7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess” with you (No idea? Catch up here.). You formed groups, wrote blogs, led discussions, created book clubs, jumped in feet first, bullied your pastors, tricked your friends, wrote me one zillion emails and letters, and I truly believe the needle moved forward on the kingdom. It was incredible. I cannot believe what God has done. You moved, downsized, switched jobs, sold your possessions, decided to adopt, launched new ministries, served the marginalized, inspired your children, changed your lives. You were so brave, so obedient. I stood over on the side with my mouth hanging open.
 
Did you know that in the original experiment during a discussion with The Council, one of them said something about making a detail “reproducible” and I laughed in her face? “What??? No one is going to do this! Are you crazy? Are THEY crazy? This isn’t that kind of book! This is just to read! Who would do this??”
 
This is the only time I’ve ever been wrong in my life. Ask Brandon.
 
I had no idea anyone would want to try this, or some version of it. I didn’t write 7 that way in the slightest. I am still stunned out of my mind. I’ve seen the face of crazy, and it isn’t just in the mirror apparently. You’ve gone mad right alongside me.
 
So I wrote a study version of 7 intended to be, ahem, a reproducible project with many, many, many options and adaptations included. It’s Bible heavy, because evidently the Bible actually has much to say about excess and consumerism and true freedom. It’s hands-on, meaning each week you will be reducing, scaling back, restraining in seven areas: food, clothing, possessions, media, waste, spending, and stress. This isn’t just information for your head; it’s a social experiment and your life is the subject. It’s new material, interactive, and we even shot a bunch of cool videos for it at my house. (I let a bunch of men from Lifeway into my closet to shoot one session, and I was so nervous as they walked into my bedroom that I hollered out, “Well, this is where the magic happens!” And then I tried to move to Canada.)
food-clothing-possessions

The 7 Experiment: Staging Your Own Mutiny Against Excess is a 9-week study, including an intro, seven weeks tackling one area of excess per week, and a conclusion. The Leader Kit includes one member book (the workbook each participant will need), all the DVD’s, and leader helps. This is for small groups, a bunch of friends, Sunday School classes, roommates, youth groups (MANY youth pastors took their students through 7 this year!), families, Bible study groups, women AND men, any old renegades.
 
Here’s the deal: I have three sets of The 7 Experiment for three selected small groups. Each set includes the Leader Kit, 10 additional member books (all signed)…and…a Skype with me at the conclusion of your study! I get to offer each set at half price – worth $200, but you can get it here, with the Skype, for $100.
The 7 Experiment

I only have three sets.
 
You interested? Can you trick inspire 10 others to join you for nine weeks? And don’t imagine you need to be some hippie minimalist to “lead” this study. Hardly. If you can press play on a DVD player and keep a discussion on the rails, you can do this. This isn’t for folks who’ve arrived but rather for those of us in progress. This isn’t a guilt trip, a strict formula, an impossible template, or a comparison game. There is wiggle room and flex for everyone; all is grace here.
 
So, I am going to draw three names from the comment section to send the whole kit n’ caboodle to for the bargain price of $100. From there, we’ll schedule a time for me to Skype into your group and we’ll laugh our heads off at all the ways you cheated along the way.

 
Tell me, why do you want The 7 Experiment and who will you ask to join you?

ME ME ME!!!!! I WANNA!!!!!!!!
Linda - January 20th, 2013 at 7:52 AM
we have a group of 15 already studying your book. Started in Oct. becasue we couldn't wait for the study to come out. Now we would love to have the videos and workbook to continue on.
Kelly - January 7th, 2013 at 10:42 AM
Yep. I am sitting here eating my sweet potato and planning mine and my husband's small group based on Seven. I'll take it! ;)
Anya - January 7th, 2013 at 10:43 AM
OH, this is perfect for my small group!! Praying for favor! ;)
Rochelle - January 13th, 2013 at 8:14 AM
Anya, I saw Deanna's comment on here too! This does look good, and like something our group could take on (with a lot of help from the Lord!) Hopefully we are chosen -prayers!
Lora - January 7th, 2013 at 10:43 AM
Oh me. Please. WE are dead broke. And we loved 7.
Barb Perez - January 7th, 2013 at 10:43 AM
Oh Jen- Why O Why wouldn't EVERYONE want the Study.... ok, they should not just simply want it EVERYONE NEEDS it... trick... err as you said inspire, 9 people I could compile a list of 99 that would LOVE to join in this adventure!!
Your book was such an inspiration to me, I KNOW the study MUST MUST be AMAZING, I would love you to "pick" me, but either way I'm gonna be rocking me some 7 NEW study habits in this glorious and wonderful new year!!!
Anna - January 7th, 2013 at 10:43 AM
I just sent an email last night to a whole group of girlfriends about doing the 7 study, and we are all getting really excited about it! This would make it SO much better!!
Chele - January 7th, 2013 at 10:43 AM
I have been looking for a study to do and have been wanting to read your book! Maybe this is the kick in the pants I need to do it!! :) Pick me! Pick me! :)
Becca - January 7th, 2013 at 10:44 AM
I would LOVE to do this with my small group! We're ready to eliminate the excess...or at least I'm speaking for all of them and then I'll let them know they're ready! : )
Faith - January 7th, 2013 at 10:44 AM
Starting a group TONIGHT with a handful of gals from church. I want to be encouraged and challenged to revolutionize my habits to make a bigger impact on the kingdom!
Angela Gilbert - January 7th, 2013 at 10:44 AM
I'm totally in!
Brandi - January 7th, 2013 at 10:44 AM
I would LOVE to take my 11th-12th grade girls small group through this! What better way to send them out into the world soon than this study?!


Gina M. South - January 7th, 2013 at 10:44 AM
This would be perfect for our small group!!!!
Christina - January 7th, 2013 at 10:45 AM
Love this!!
Michele - January 7th, 2013 at 10:45 AM
Our Monday morning Ladies study would be thrilled! Pick us!!!!!
Becca - January 7th, 2013 at 10:45 AM
Yup, we would love this!!
Amy - January 7th, 2013 at 10:46 AM
Oh man! I'm a small group youth leader at my church, and I would love to try to trick/inspire my teens to do this with me! Or if not them, I think I can get my adults small group to do it with me. :)
Kimberly Russell - January 7th, 2013 at 10:46 AM
Holy cow! Me!
Heatherly - January 7th, 2013 at 10:46 AM
Oh how I would love for this to be our next Wednesday night study! *fingers crossed* or something more spiritual than that ;)
Ashley - January 7th, 2013 at 10:46 AM
I'd love to do this. I'd ask my sister & some friends. Of course, we'll probably have to do it via Skype living in different cities, but it'll be great.
Osheta Moore - January 7th, 2013 at 10:46 AM
I would love for the women of our church plant to do this together! I hope we're chosen!
Elaine - January 7th, 2013 at 10:46 AM
YES!!!! I would LOVE to have this study. I read the book and loved it. I am already thinking of the ladies that could join us. Pick me. :)
Andi - January 7th, 2013 at 10:47 AM
A group and I went through Interrupted together and LOVED it (ok, we hated it but grew so much). I'm pretty sure we're ready to be messed with again.
Vicki - January 7th, 2013 at 10:47 AM
I'm living in a new town. I think this would be an excellent way to get to know my neighbors or my new small group at church. Or - they might run me out of town on a rail. Either way, I'll take it! (BTW - I read the book a year ago and did an adapted version of 7 myself. :))
Catherine - January 7th, 2013 at 10:47 AM
Oh my!!! I read your book last year and could not put it down. Honestly turned to my husband one night reading it and said 'we could totally be friends!'. You put into words the real struggles and thoughts I face every day and don't speak out loud. I loved it and constantly tell others...grab 7...it'll knock your socks off. We have a small bible study of neighborhood moms that this would be PERFECT for. Right now there are only 9 members....but I know just the friend I'd ask to be the 10th. (She read 7 right after me....and loved it. She is a funny funny follower of Christ!! )
Kristine - January 7th, 2013 at 10:47 AM
Oh my word, we are just finishing the book and we talked last night about doing the study... this would be SO AWESOME!! Crossing my fingers!!
Kerri Simpson - January 7th, 2013 at 10:47 AM
I would LOVE to have this study!! I would invite moms from my MOPS group and my home church. MOPS moms love to keep each other accountable! Select me!
Tracie Ward - January 7th, 2013 at 10:47 AM
Yes! Yes!! Would be an amazing study to do with my adoptive mommy group! We are all bringing home Haitian babies this year!!!!
Alicia Sierra - January 7th, 2013 at 10:47 AM
A whole slew of us read this last year and ended up talking more about 7 during our summer Bible study than we did about the book that we were actually suppose to be studying. So this summer, once all of my teacher friends have some time off, we are just going to make 7 our official topic of study. I would love to get a set for half price!!! Please?!? Thanks for the opportunity!
Bryony - January 7th, 2013 at 10:48 AM
I want it! I just read Out of the spin cycle, Interrupted and 7 we did months 1 and 2 as a family then I was on my own so, I'm on a little sabbatical. I already suggested it to my pastor for our small group last semester. He's interested, if I brought it I'm sure he would be on board.
Kimberly Durham - January 7th, 2013 at 10:48 AM
Pick me!!! I'm the leader of a fearless group of women with hearts for Jesus! We'd love to take the 7 challenge :)
Sharon - January 7th, 2013 at 10:48 AM
Me,me,me!,! We want to do this for our small group. We tried and failed over the summer from just the book. I bet we can rally behind the bible study better :)). I'd love another chance!
Erica - January 7th, 2013 at 10:48 AM
I am ready for 2013 to be the year of change and focused living! I am tired of living in a rut and thinking maybe this Bible Study is what we need.
Lisa Stracke - January 7th, 2013 at 10:48 AM
Ok, we want, but we don't to. But, I really think we want to!
katie - January 7th, 2013 at 10:48 AM
i am trying to get people to do this with me! my strategy so far has been repetition (i'm pretending i have dementia: "did i tell you about this amazing book? you HAVE to read it and then do it with me. oh i did? twice??..."), and i will be resorting to trickery forthwith.
Kristi Ahrens - January 7th, 2013 at 10:49 AM
I want to so bad!!! I've been blabbing about this book at MOPS for the past 3 months and I'd love to bring a bunch of the girls on board with me! Who knows!? Maybe our brunch for 70 women could consist of spinach, sweet potatoes and apple slices??? Maybe that's a bit ambitious:) I'd love to lead a group with this book though!!!
Lindsay - January 7th, 2013 at 10:49 AM
Sounds great! Read it last year, would love to do
The study with a small group:)
Michelle J - January 7th, 2013 at 10:50 AM
I am pretty sure I can trick, oh I mean, Truly Inspire some of peeps to do this! We were just talking about it on FB recently and us So Cal folks can sure use some reduction in our lives!!
Donna Pineau - January 7th, 2013 at 10:50 AM
I would LOVE to do this. Why? Just the minimal stuff I did and what I discovered about myself and my relationship with God during reading 7 helped me see a different world outside my own.

Who would I ask? I think I would ask just people I know, people I work with, family members. I would love to have a study with people outside my women's group and church.
yvette - January 7th, 2013 at 10:50 AM
Oh ME!! We are the freak family with our adopted kids and limits on what our kids get/have - our area so needs this!
Laura bowser - January 7th, 2013 at 10:51 AM
I can easily trick I mean inspire my friends
Kerri Washburn - January 7th, 2013 at 10:51 AM
Hi my name is Kerri and I've been there done that 7 thing last summer. Poor hubby lost his pool bids over a garden. Haa sucker. I'm still crazy over it but losing luster so I would love to lead 10 of my just as insane lady friends right along with me in an all new level of 7. Bring it!
Kerri Washburn
Jen - January 7th, 2013 at 10:51 AM
My friend & I were JUST discussing this study & how we couldn't find it on-line. Love it when God shows you the way via social media. We all ready have a new group forming for this month. Really want to go deeper with God on how to get out of the ipad, iphone, xbox, 6 TV family rat race.
Ellie - January 7th, 2013 at 10:51 AM
This would be so cool! I have already been getting some of the high school girls in my youth group interested in this and we are going to be doing the challenge together so having a curriculum to work through would be the cherry on top!!
Shari - January 7th, 2013 at 10:51 AM
My girlfriends and I are planning to start sometime this month...this would be such a blessing!!
Becky - January 7th, 2013 at 10:51 AM
Our groups wants in ;)
Tena Roher - January 7th, 2013 at 10:51 AM
I would love to be able to share this with my moms bible study! I loved reading through 7 so it only seems fitting to "pay the blessing forward"!

Tena
Lisa H. - January 7th, 2013 at 10:52 AM
I'm a "pastor's wife" (sans halo) in the pacific NW who actually managed to convince a posse of 7 to try the food fast.....We'd love to work on the whole real deal!
Kristen - January 7th, 2013 at 10:52 AM
Perfect timing! My small group of girls is looking for a new study to start and this would be perfect.
Lauren - January 7th, 2013 at 10:52 AM
Hi Jen! I have a group of about 15 moms I help lead at my church City of grace in Mesa, Arizona. We are doing your study next!! We demanded..err..chose to do 7 as our next study for so many reasons. But the main reason is to show these awesome women of God how much God desires us to have freedom in him!! And how to be stewards of what we have. This would be awesome to win!!

Thanks so much!!
Jen T. - January 7th, 2013 at 10:53 AM
Woot! The other day I saw a cold woman walking on the freeway in the rain. I stopped to pick her up, bought her lunch and took her to the women's shelter. I would have never in a million years done this before I read 7. I didn't even know where the shelter WAS before this book impacted my life and I got more involved there. Would love to get the study in my hot little hands and share it with others!
Nicole Turner - January 7th, 2013 at 10:53 AM
PICK ME! Puhhhleasssse!
Ali Cox - January 7th, 2013 at 10:53 AM
In for sure! I read 7 last year and loved it! I've been praying for the right group of ladies to dig in with and just finished gathering them. They are friends from all different places in my life. We all want more with less...
Stephanie Benson - January 7th, 2013 at 10:54 AM
I would love to lead my young adult women through this study! I have been feeling like this is something we all need to hear!
Jada Schiessl - January 7th, 2013 at 10:54 AM
Oh gosh... Our small group needs this SO bad. The women have pretty much sang your praises since 7 but getting hubs in board too, would be awesome. This is a great price, but since many in our group are unable to pay & some in our homeless community may join, we've been encouraged by the church to use free, online studies, as not to push others away who can't contribute. We love you & love 7 & I'm sure 7 is amazing in study form. Blessings to the group who wins. I hope God moves mountains for y'all.
Nancie-Joy - January 7th, 2013 at 10:54 AM
Yep. Loved 7. I'd ask my own council to join me. This would include my prayer partner and friend , my adoptive mom friends & two or three peers. Thx Jen! Women of Faith conference is on my to do list this year. I am only 3 hrs from Seattle. If that doesn't work I will just have to come to Texas. Good?
Tama Clapper - January 7th, 2013 at 10:54 AM
I am a stay-at-home-mom, pastorwifen mom of 4 that has been DTE for 2 children since 10/07/11 with AWAA. I started a ministry 3 years ago that God has run away with :). http://www.blessingsinabackpack.org/PeopleFirst2012.aspx (I am the two Feb articles). I live the 7 as much as I can, but I can't write or speak the why you can. I have already been through the book once with one friend, but I would love the whole set to go through with more people in our church. We started our church 5 years ago to make an impact in our community. We have a good deal of granola eating adoptive moms. This would be such a blessing to us.
Becky Gerig - January 7th, 2013 at 10:54 AM
My mom to mom group is lOoking for a study. We would love love to do this! We have been recently talking about the excess that consumes our thoughts and how we spend our time dealing with it. This would be a great study for us here in Indiana!
Kerri - January 7th, 2013 at 10:55 AM
Please pick us!! Our group would love it! :)
Myriam - January 7th, 2013 at 10:55 AM
Me please
Jessica - January 7th, 2013 at 10:56 AM
Wow! This would be great! I'd LOVE to do this!! Pick me, pick me :)
Tara Fletcher - January 7th, 2013 at 10:56 AM
Pick me! Pick me! Or don't. Maybe I don't want you to, but maybe you should.
Shelya - January 7th, 2013 at 10:56 AM
Me! I would LOOOOOOVE to win this. Now that I've taken all of my Christmas decor down, I'm still hit with the fact that my house is a mess of clutter that we DON'T NEED! I went to Ethiopia in October and since then I've been overwhelmed with the burden of being so privileged and the waste that I spend my money on that could be used by someone that really needs it. I want to be a better steward of what God has entrusted to me.
Amanda - January 7th, 2013 at 10:56 AM
Oh, this sounds perfect! My husband leads a group and we're looking for something real and practical this next session.
Brea Bursch - January 7th, 2013 at 10:56 AM
My book club read 7. 15 or so ladies with lives changed and freed from bondage. Would love the experiment and seeing where God moves next!
Leanna - January 7th, 2013 at 10:56 AM
Jens this is MEANT for me. It's been on my heart to do this with a group of friends, and I hovered over th box on amazon last night and waited. Clearly it's because I'm meant to have this set instead!!
Sherree - January 7th, 2013 at 10:56 AM
Me! This would be perfect for our Sunday school class.
anne beller - January 7th, 2013 at 10:57 AM
I'll take it!
Deanna - January 7th, 2013 at 10:57 AM
Our small group have been talking about this study and how great it would be! We start up again with a new study, to be determined next week!! This would be perfect!!!
Jamie Wright - January 7th, 2013 at 10:57 AM
Us, us, us... we would LOVE to plug the conference with a follow up bible study and offer it to all the area ladies to come! :)))
Lori - January 7th, 2013 at 10:58 AM
This sounds like a perfect next turn for my Girlfriends council. In the last 2 years God's called one of us to add 2 Ethiopian teenagers to her family of 8, another to adopt an older child out if local foster care, one to move her family of 7 to Thailand as full time missionaries, and another to start traveling with her husband on medical missions trips. They haven't read 7 yet, only I have.....I think it's time to push the whole lot of us over the edge!
Amy Bales - January 7th, 2013 at 10:59 AM
I would love this study!! As a working mom & middle school teacher, these principles are so relevant to my life. Pick me!
Hollee Ford - January 7th, 2013 at 11:00 AM
My best friend got me to read the book and now we joke about moving to Austin to try to find a way on the council. (We live in DFW). We read the book and were inspired, but like so many things continued on living our lives with a few cuts here and there. We'd love to do this with our friends. Please send my way!
Erika - January 7th, 2013 at 11:01 AM
Yes! I would love to do with some of the women in my life. Several of us have read 7 and loved it!
Joy - January 7th, 2013 at 11:01 AM
I read 7 last January and then proceeded to give it to lots of other people. I tried my own version on my own without a council or accountability and failed miserably. So, I would love the opportunity to try again with some other people to experience it with me. I think if I won this, I would have friends fighting to be in the group of 10. We'll see. Thanks for the opportunity.
Terah - January 7th, 2013 at 11:01 AM
I want the 7 Experiment bc I want something that will change my life and my family's life this year! I would love to ask 10 ladies in our church to join me on this crazy journey and I think they would be excited to do so!
Angela - January 7th, 2013 at 11:02 AM
We have been planning on doing this study-- i read and loved the book-- and i have 6 ppl committed to coming so far-- It is so timely and we would be soooo grateful if we won!
Heather Hunt - January 7th, 2013 at 11:02 AM
You are such an inspiration and are always looking for new ways to bless others. Thank you for showing me kindness in so many ways.
Jimmy Eskridge - January 7th, 2013 at 11:03 AM
The amount of cheating and twisting my wife and I have done to your precious book will make you laugh. Even with all that cheating it has been a real life changer. Our first Community group at 519 church in Apex NC would love to do this!!
Barbra Boling - January 7th, 2013 at 11:03 AM
Ooooo, my small group would LOVE this! We're a group of nine twenty and thirty something women in the work force and working for Jesus in Tacoma, Washington. What a blessing this would be. We are brave and bold - we are totally cra cra enough for this. :)
Natasha Higgins - January 7th, 2013 at 11:04 AM
I would love to be apart of the 7 Experiment!!! Plus it would be good to see you again even if it is via Skype :)
Jennifer - January 7th, 2013 at 11:04 AM
My small group would love this!!!
Erin R. - January 7th, 2013 at 11:04 AM
This would be amazing for our small group! We've gotten really close "doing life together" over the past year, and this would be just what we need to take things to the next level. :)
Katy McCay - January 7th, 2013 at 11:04 AM
Our group would love this! I'd be the cheater, I'm in the serious rule following bunch.
Wendy - January 7th, 2013 at 11:05 AM
I would love to use this study with a group of women from church. They are all in their 20's and I adore their perky young selves.

PLEASE pick me! If we lived near each other, I am certain we would be BFF's. I have referred to you as, "My friend, Jen," ever since I read 7 last year. My family is sick to death of me AND you. ;)
Krista - January 7th, 2013 at 11:05 AM
Yes please! I read 7 last year and plan on reading it again this year as the season I am in has changed so much since then. Hoping I get one of these sets so I can share the joy of your words with friends!
Alison Morriss - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
Just sayin... it would make a GREAT bday gift! I will promise to find some of my people I know here and bring them through it! :) or maybe some of the staff at Arrow! And instead of a Skype date, I'll treat at this really great Asian restaurant by a big playground! hahahahaha!
Nan Gray - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
I want to win and do the 7 experiment with my girlfriend's bible study group because we are launching a church this month and we want to draw closer to God this year as we follow His calling. While I individually have been doing a smaller version of 7, I want to see how God can change this nine women's lives this year through this study! We just finished reading as a group, "Soul Detox" so "7" seems like a perfect follow-up!
Melanie - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
I would LOVE to go through the study with my friends--ready the book was very eye-opening to me...like nothing I've ever read before. I would be laughing so hard & then boom! You just lay something out there that was so sobering to me & how God is calling me to change my ways. I have a great circle of friends who I know would love to do the study, too...and the opportunity to skpe with you--awesome! :)
sheila - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
Yes, I would love to do this new study with my home group from church. My husband and I do mission work in Haiti and India - THIS is what we have been talking about.
Nikki - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
Me me me! Would love this with a couples lifegroup!
Amy Purvis - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
I would love to do this with my girls! I'm in a leadership class the next 3 months and I want something to dig into...I loved 7 and was changed by page 174...so many tears! Thanks for a great offer and I love your sense of humor!!
Stephanie - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
I was just thinking I'd love to go through this book with others. I'm in!
Cindy - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
Yes, please!
Pam - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
I would be scared to be picked but if I am, maybe it's a sign!
Ashley - January 7th, 2013 at 11:06 AM
I have a wonderful group of new young moms who meet together weekly for Bible study. I've been eyeing this as our potential next study, and would love to bless them with this gift that will assuredly bless them and their growing families.
Erica Healey - January 7th, 2013 at 11:07 AM
My sister (Tara Kohlbacher) has already pulled together a group of women (including myself!) to start the study on February 6! I enlisted the help of my sisters to purge a number of items from my closet yesterday and I know I still have a long way to go this year as I work towards aligning my priorities with Christ's!
Atalie - January 7th, 2013 at 11:07 AM
As a 24 year old, I read your book right out of college. I was struggling to live a life that was meaningful and to hear God's voice. This book changed the way I began to view the world and what type of footprint I want to leave behind for my future children and future generations. I would love to do this study with other 20-somethings within my city and church, whether Christian or non-Christian. Would absolutely LOVE to receive this half-price opportunity! Have already begun sending out e-mails to friends and family!
Pam Smith - January 7th, 2013 at 11:07 AM
Loved the book and just suggested this study to my Tuesday morning ladies group. This would be great!
Tori Cole - January 7th, 2013 at 11:08 AM
Ok Jen. I'm nervous as all get out about this and just even trying this because, yes, what in the world am I going to have to give up!!! But, as I type this, I am getting together a women's Bible study for our church and ladies in our area in west TN. I saw you at DotMom, read your blog, laugh with you (especially on Christmas Eve). So, here we go. I'm a SAHM (That's our fb page for our group of ladies) with three kids-5,3, and1. Off I go to clean up someone who has yet to decide he can and must poop in the potty. I can't wait to see who you pick!!!
Karin Pecchia - January 7th, 2013 at 11:08 AM
It's meant to be! My small group had decided before Christmas to do this study in January and we were just corresponding about where we could track down the books. Tracking them down from the author would be a pretty sweet deal! p.s. Loved all the Dowton Abbey updates. Have you and Sydney watched BBC's Pride and Prejudice? It will change your life! :-)
sarah - January 7th, 2013 at 11:08 AM
Im so scared of this book. It has sat on my shelf for months. I even read the intro. I know it is going to wreck me. I need it. Putting it in Bible study format could be just the accountability I need. Im sure I can "trick" some friends into it as well! Pick me : )
Jan Barlow - January 7th, 2013 at 11:08 AM
We have a group of women at our very small country church who meet once a month for a bible study. We are - as we "speak" - in the process of deciding what to do for our next study. We've done book studies as well as studied books from the Bible. (We just concluded a study of Philippians - awesome!). I've suggested studying 7 - and my pastor and his wife are reading it right now. I don't know if it will rock their world like it did mine, but I'm hoping so. He just came back from China totally feeling the need to declutter his media life. (And that's when I handed him "7" and said, "you MUST read THIS!"...

Our women's group has about 8-12 consistent attendees. To win this set would seal the deal! Thanks for the chance...
Ashley Gordon - January 7th, 2013 at 11:08 AM
My small group has already planned to do your study so this would be awesome. Since visiting Ethiopia in 2010 I have just been bogged down with all of our "stuff"!! Our small group wants to do a yard sale after purging all of our extra junk and use it for some type of mission project. Please pick us!!!
Jen Patterson - January 7th, 2013 at 11:09 AM
I would love this study (because the book was life changing!) and the girls I lead in our bible study have been excited about the release of this study because I mention the book ALL the time!!!
April - January 7th, 2013 at 11:09 AM
I want to win this for our Small Group Ministry! So it can be used over and over and over again. We don't have a budget for buying resources so this would be awesome! Groups pitch in and purchase materials and then donate them to the ministry for other groups to use. I would love to add this to what we have available!
Janice - January 7th, 2013 at 11:09 AM
I do organize a study every year at my church and would love to win this!!
Michelle J - January 7th, 2013 at 11:09 AM
Would love to mess my friends up by going through this with them!!
Jennifer Holsted - January 7th, 2013 at 11:11 AM
Pick me! My small group is starting next month
Shani Campbell - January 7th, 2013 at 11:11 AM
Pick me, pick me, pleeeeeasssssssee!! I read this last year and would live to trick some of my work buddies to join in on the study!!! We'll make you so proud, I just know it!!
Jessica - January 7th, 2013 at 11:12 AM
Does it disqualify me if I tell you I would pay full price, but half price would be lovely.
Alison F. - January 7th, 2013 at 11:12 AM
This is the book my husband and I are proposing to our small group tonight! We'd love to be chosen!
Kris TeBrake - January 7th, 2013 at 11:12 AM
I'm thinking our youth group! Minus a youth director right now, so we have a bunch of misfit adult volunteers trying to hold it together - this would be SUPER! Thanks for the opportunity!
Lisa - January 7th, 2013 at 11:13 AM
I had a conversation with my sister in law last week about this study! She suggested that since I'm a big fan of yours that I should host a group. And now you offer me a chance to get it for cheap! My hesitation was that I'm not a real "leader" type of person, so I'm glad to know that I'm qualified if I can press the play button. :)
Jeni Michener - January 7th, 2013 at 11:13 AM
Oh. Pick me pick me pick me!! Our group starts next Monday, the 14th!! We are all excited and nervous, but expectant!!! And they'll all blame me if its hard and painful and awful, because I read the book and said we HAAAAAAD to do this! :)
Sarah Davison - January 7th, 2013 at 11:14 AM
Woohoo!! I can't wait to start this! I already read the book and it changed my perspective and now I'm overwhelmed by my life and am not sure where to start so this would definitely help!
Erica Green - January 7th, 2013 at 11:15 AM
I'm leading a group of 8 women are seniors in college through the study this semester - we actually have the books (I gave them to them as Christmas presents, but we haven't started yet), but I'm entering anyway because WE WANT TO SKYPE WITH YOU!!! They're amazing. Please let us talk to you! :)
Paula Raymond - January 7th, 2013 at 11:15 AM
We would love to do this! Some friends & I just met last week to discuss starting a study of your book. I loved it & hated it all at the same time. ;) Thanks for challenging us.

taylor - January 7th, 2013 at 11:16 AM
We want it! Add our name to the bucket! Our small group has been wrecked by 7 and we would LOVE to do the actual study! Thank you for writing this book. So transforming. WE LOVE JEN!!
Lindsay SKipper - January 7th, 2013 at 11:16 AM
Several of us gals in our small group read Seven over the summer and we were totally ticked at you - in a good way. In fact, we have been doing crazy stuff - like this past Saturday we cooked breakfast for the homeless people and it was such a blessing! We have been wondering if the rest of our group was ready for the Seven Study. That is why we NEED to win! Ready or not, here we come!
Erin - January 7th, 2013 at 11:17 AM
Please pick me; pick me!
Twila - January 7th, 2013 at 11:17 AM
My group has decided on this for our next session and well, we are Jen Hatmaker groupies. :-) Cannot wait!!! Pick us!
Amber Bjork - January 7th, 2013 at 11:17 AM
My bible study group would LOVE this study! We are a group of moms who love us some bible study. :-). We have 9 in our group.
Jennifer Tuggle - January 7th, 2013 at 11:17 AM
I need this bible study!!! LOVED the book! Thank you so much for giving me focus during such a stressful time in my life (my hubby's deployment with two 2-year old twin boys!)
Leeanne - January 7th, 2013 at 11:18 AM
I would love this for my group of girlfriends. We are in the young kiddos stage and our homes are taken over by baby gear, toys and clothes and our days are filled with Target trips, playdates and STRESS. Some of the girls I'm thinking of don't know Jesus and I think this would be a great opportunity to further His kingdom.
And...we may just road trip it from Dallas to Austin and take you to dinner instead of skyping. We are ALL about finding reasons to leave the kids with the husbands!
diane - January 7th, 2013 at 11:18 AM
i would love it
Denise S. - January 7th, 2013 at 11:19 AM
Jen:

PLEASE PICK ME for the following reasons:

1. I get you...
2. I get your sense of humor
3. I "got it" about excess when our college girls did this book as a bible study
4. We are already practically best friends since I met you at Glorietta in the Chapel (I'm sure you remember)
5. We are just as funny as you and we would certainly laugh our head off
6. I am an old lady working with college aged girls and you would be the injection of needed "hip"
7. I plan to start a stripper ministry in 2013 so this material could be used for both groups.
8. See....lots of reasons to pick me. XOXO

Lindsay - January 7th, 2013 at 11:19 AM
I would LOVE this!
Donna - January 7th, 2013 at 11:20 AM
I would love this to lead a new group during Sunday School. Our SS leader just moved on to other things and we are looking for something to sink our teeth into next
Joanisa - January 7th, 2013 at 11:21 AM
Me,me,me!!!!
Tarrah - January 7th, 2013 at 11:21 AM
Jen, I would like to do this with either my small group or our sunday school class! this is great! thank you for inspiring me!
Randi - January 7th, 2013 at 11:23 AM
I have begun reading the book this past week and have plans to start a small group in the next month or two. I am in the CLD classes through GGBTS and am to start a small group this semester. A few of my friends have already shown interest in "simplifying" this year and one lady approached me out of nowhere and asked me if I'd ever heard of your book. I know that God is leading us to do this and I hope for a bigger reason than just cleaning out closets or making things simpler. I look forward to learning and discovering what God has in store for us. I am both excited and dreading it. ;-)
EJ Phillips - January 7th, 2013 at 11:24 AM
Pick me, pick me, pick me!!!!!
Alma - January 7th, 2013 at 11:25 AM
I have not had the pleasure of reading 7 just yet, I am reading your "a modern Girls guide to Bible Study" and I'm enjoying every word written! You are amazing! I'm so glad God created people like you who reflect his light and inspire people to follow Him! I love Jesus and this year I want my relationship with Him to grow deeper and not focus on material things! What better way than to do the 7 study! We just joined a new church in San Diego and its a small church, just got established about a year ago, I can't think of a better way to get to know my sisters in Christ and grow together in deepening our relationship with Jesus and each other! Pick US!
candice - January 7th, 2013 at 11:26 AM
If my group wins I promise to not skype in my robe...now that's a serious commitment.
Chelsea - January 7th, 2013 at 11:26 AM
Oh my goodness. Our small group is meeting Thursday night to figure out which Bible study we will do next. I would love to expose them to this... to you. :o) God used 7 to continue work he had already started in my husband and I to free ourselves from 'the American dream' and start living the way God intended. We love the families in our small group but have been discouraged by their lack of willingness to give and serve- and they are doctors, an attorneys and engineers! We know they have plenty if we (homeschooling mom and production line worker dad) have plenty. I would love to get this for God to use it to change hearts in our town.
Ashley Burke - January 7th, 2013 at 11:26 AM
My Bible study that has been studying the Chronological Bible are taking a break and doing 7 to start our year off! We have already purchased the kit and books and start tomorrow. Please pray for me and my girls that we may keep the focus on hearing from God instead of just deck uttering our lives.
Kristen - January 7th, 2013 at 11:26 AM
I just got off the phone with the small group coordinator at my church about what to study next. I call that timing! ;-)
Tara - January 7th, 2013 at 11:26 AM
I've already got 12 girls signed up to start the study beginning on Feb. 6th! I'm so excited! We'd love the discounted rate. :) Pick us! Pick us!
Melanie Cooke - January 7th, 2013 at 11:27 AM
I'm on the last chapter of the book and I sometimes think I'm crazy for wanting to do this! But I so identified with you, to the point I know I'd pick you as my friend if I lived in Texas. I've already been praying God would send me the groupies! Don't know who they'll be....but they better be as adventurous and funny as your clan! I've already gone through my closet - round 1! Plan on a few more rounds!!! I just want to say thank you Jen - you rock!! :)
EPHale - January 7th, 2013 at 11:27 AM
Oh! I would love it! I just "found" you not long ago, and reading your words was like hearing my own heart. In the last year, I've seen God moving the hearts of many people I know toward the heart of Christianity...myself included. There is a group of women I know who are all hungry for a deeper, more real walk with God...a stripping down of excess and a rekindling of what the gospel really calls us to do. What a blessing it would be to go through this study together!
Tiffany - January 7th, 2013 at 11:28 AM
Pick our group!
Lizzie - January 7th, 2013 at 11:28 AM
Oh shucks. I read your book. Devoured it. Emptied my closet and refrigerator. Gave to the homeless and prayed for orphans with the zeal of the newly converted. It was all my husband heard me talk about - I even tried to take the coat off his back - in February - and give it to the guy with the "will work for food" sign we pass every Sunday on our way to church. (What? I totally would have given my jacket, but I'm a girl, see. And it was purple...)

But then March happened, and rolled into April, and here we are almost a year later and I need help. On my to-do list today is "find the clothes that need returning." Find them. Because we have so many, in a house so full of stuff, that they've gone missing in less time than it took the wise men to get to baby Jesus.

My new small group has agreed to start the year off doing Seven together - the bible study kit (and Skype session with you!) would be such a gift
Erin - January 7th, 2013 at 11:29 AM
YES please. My small group of young married couple would love this! I just finished 7 and want to share it with everyone i know!
Kristen - January 7th, 2013 at 11:29 AM
Me please!! I lead a Marrieds group at church - over 30 couples attend! We could really use this!! We are supposed to start a new study in a couple weeks and I have been diligently praying about a new 9 week study. I hope this is it! Love your books!!
Denise P - January 7th, 2013 at 11:29 AM
I want to win the package for the group of us here in Chicago, IL who haven't even a clue on when or how to start. What a great offer, should my name be chosen, the mission begins. Jen thanks for offering this & most importantly yourself to this challenge, skype with Jen Hatmaker?!!! Life on earth does have many rewards....may the journey begin this way or another!!
Ashley - January 7th, 2013 at 11:29 AM
Trying to come up with a way to trick YOU, into picking ME!! Our little group would soooooo enjoy and love this!! I pretend you are my frie f anyway, so a Skype sesh might make people believe me a little ;) thanks for the chance!!!
Becca - January 7th, 2013 at 11:33 AM
I've been on this simplicity journey for a few years now (much of it out of financial necessity) and my heart still has a loooong way to go. I just started reading 7 a couple of days ago and can't put it down! I can't wait for the study! Thank you for being brave in sharing your journey with us and letting us coming along with you!
Jane - January 7th, 2013 at 11:34 AM
My friends and I have been talking about doing a book club on 7...nothing like putting money where my mouth is to motivate me to do it!
Elizabeth - January 7th, 2013 at 11:36 AM
I'm slated to lead our sunday school class for the first time this winter and would LOVE to lead this! The book was life changing for our family
Kendra Crabtree - January 7th, 2013 at 11:36 AM
My girlfriends and I have already talked about doing this! Can't wait! A few of us have already started our "fight against excess"!!
Angela Steeves - January 7th, 2013 at 11:38 AM
Would love to do this with my girlfriends we have talked about it a lot . Something we all struggle with
Jen Sheridan - January 7th, 2013 at 11:39 AM
Done. And you can thank me later for introducing you to my friends via Skype. They're THAT awesome.
Mari Marks - January 7th, 2013 at 11:39 AM
Honestly, I've been terrified to read your book. Ignorance s bliss and all that.... But after going to El Salvador for the last three years, I need to do it. I need to have my living match my heart. And in turn help my friends understand so I don't look like I've gone off the deep end :)
Jenny Trask - January 7th, 2013 at 11:39 AM
The quiet little mountains of NC are inhabited with the most brave, raucous folks on earth. We eat revolution for breakfast. Let us win. Please. And, pretty please. No pressure. (Pick us.) :)
Sarah - January 7th, 2013 at 11:39 AM
Just was chatting with a friend this morning about the best way to invest in your study so we could share it with all our friends!! Fun to read about this now! Either way, I will invest in it. I have been so very blessed by your book. Thank you for sharing your heart. Looking forward to sharing how God has used your book to encourage me with my friends!!
Carmen - January 7th, 2013 at 11:40 AM
Sounds like a great and well needed study!!!
Marla W - January 7th, 2013 at 11:41 AM
My MOPS Book Study group would LOOOOOOOOOOVE this!
Martie Byrd - January 7th, 2013 at 11:42 AM
Jen, you had me at Hello. 7 pages into 7 I had already texted everyone I know. THIS is the Kick-in-the-butt, er, ENCOURAGEMENT we've been LOOKING FOR! I will do the study with or without winning but girlfriend, take pity on a fellow cheapskate mother of five and pick me.

PS. Today is my Day 1 of eating 7 foods and did I mention, I only started the book last week?

PPS. If you pick me, I will reciprocate and send you a free copy of my book The Kids Drank Pickle Juice.
Nikki - January 7th, 2013 at 11:42 AM
Our little churh-start group is starting 7 tonight-- we decided it before Christmas! We would LOVE to have the DVDs!! Xoxo
Katie - January 7th, 2013 at 11:43 AM
I would absolutely love to do this with a group of women. Me please!!
stephanie smith - January 7th, 2013 at 11:43 AM
if i win this, i will trick 10 friends into joining me. im going out on a limb here with the idea that if i win, then it was meant to be! i started our fight against excess last year during lent as i read your book and it has changed alot about the way we live. i want others to be freer to so heres hoping i win!
Alison Harrop - January 7th, 2013 at 11:44 AM
We would love to do this study. We are a group of ladies who already meet on Tuesday mornings to do bible study. We have been looking for one to do next and this would be PERFECT!! Please pick us! :) Pretty please :)
Laurel C - January 7th, 2013 at 11:45 AM
This would be awesome for our small mom's group. Kind of scary... But awesome!
Mendy - January 7th, 2013 at 11:45 AM
Sounds like a great study!
Betsy Wolf - January 7th, 2013 at 11:45 AM
I never win a darned thing, but I'll take another shot at it :)

I
Melissa - January 7th, 2013 at 11:48 AM
I absolutely LOVED the book and have been trying to come up with a way to do this
In a small group setting! You are an answer to my prayers!! I would open it up to our women's group at church and combine it with raising money for a water project we are trying to get off the ground for a community in Africa!
P.S. you're not the only one who watched 2 seasons of Downton Abbey in two days!!
Corie - January 7th, 2013 at 11:48 AM
Would love to get this study! Our small group was just talking about needing a new study once we finish our Beth Moore one! Our family has changed so much since I read 7 (adopting, giving more, cutting out excess) and I'd love to do this study to continue the work God is doing to wreck the life we had planned for ourselves and mold us to His plan.
Jennifer - January 7th, 2013 at 11:49 AM
We would live to do this study!! We have a small group that meets on Sunday nights. Our group would love to use this opportunity to teach ourselves as well as our 11 kids how to live this way.
Amy - January 7th, 2013 at 11:49 AM
Read the book, can't stop talking about the book, ready to bring my beloved home group along for the ride.
Sara Gentry - January 7th, 2013 at 11:50 AM
We would love to do this in my women's bible study! At least I am pretty sure I could convince the rest of them that it's only 9 weeks ;)
Anne - January 7th, 2013 at 11:52 AM
Oh please, oh please! Meeting with a small group at the end of the month to discuss the book - what a blessing it would be to take that discussion and turn it into this study together!
Jen - January 7th, 2013 at 11:55 AM
Yes... With the requisite fear and trembling.
Kimberly - January 7th, 2013 at 11:57 AM
This would be an amazing gift to have for the reduced price to share with most precious friends in my life! I would have all my friends over to my house and we would do this together!!!!! There are so many of us who have read your books and have pushed to RETHINK life and what God desires from us!!! Thanks for this offer!!!
Alison Hyman - January 7th, 2013 at 11:59 AM
I would love to have a copy of this study! I just finished reading 7 and it has wrecked my life! I am 25 years old and feel like I am so alone in this journey toward limiting excess! I would love to include my family and some friends in this journey! I would love to be able to involve others in this life changing book/study! It completely re-defined Christianity for me...
Marti Williams - January 7th, 2013 at 11:59 AM
Tag!!!
Susan Clayton - January 7th, 2013 at 12:01 PM
This sounds perfect for my bible study! We are a group that has been meeting together for several years and need something new and challenging to open us up to God's new possibilities for our lives! I'm the leader. We are about 15-20 people strong if everyone is there on a given week. Presbyterians (USA) but from a mixture of backgrounds. We meet on Thursdays! Would love to try it!
Suzie - January 7th, 2013 at 12:01 PM
I will ask my bible study girls...a group of young moms who have been meeting weekly for three years!
Yvonne - January 7th, 2013 at 12:01 PM
My Titus 2 group has started the & challenges and are really having a blast. Never been this hungry for so long a period but we are determined. We prefer to not label our little transgressions as cheating but rather not being legalistic. Would love to be able to work through your study.
Vicki - January 7th, 2013 at 12:02 PM
I'm in...and afraid :)
Heather Sutherlin - January 7th, 2013 at 12:03 PM
This is an answer to prayer! A group of outreach, service-minded friends and I were just talking about starting a new Bible study and someone mentioned Seven since we'd already finished Interrupted. We're all in, Jen! Please choose our group of gals and help us to become transformed this year, wiped clean with a fresh new focus on serving our community for the glory of God.
Kaleo - January 7th, 2013 at 12:03 PM
I'm starting a crochet/knitting group at my home tomorrow night that will run for about 8-12 weeks. Wouldn't that be a hoot to "add a little"...inspiration! :) "7" changed me. I'm headed to Uganda on the 21st. Heard you were recently there too. I'd adore this gift, Jen. And use it well.
Jennifer Gay - January 7th, 2013 at 12:04 PM
I need this.
Married to a minister. Served churches since 1991.
In a desert, and did not know it.
Wish we could be friends. Your sense of humor speaks to mine.
Our "church" ladies could use this too..www.belleaire.org/women

LeAnn - January 7th, 2013 at 12:04 PM
I've been leading studies with CRU for 20 years and would love to try yours with my college seniors from Appalachian State in Boone, NC!
Amenda Lacy - January 7th, 2013 at 12:07 PM
Oh yes! This would be perfect for my family and friends!!!
Amanda - January 7th, 2013 at 12:07 PM
I'd pay the full price regardless, but my group would LOVE the opportunity to Skype with you. We all wish we lived in Austin so we could secretly stalk you (in the most Christian way possible)...we are doomed to cyber-stalk you from Dallas.
karena - January 7th, 2013 at 12:07 PM
My small women's group NEEDS this!
Sarah Wilson - January 7th, 2013 at 12:10 PM
Oh yes! Pick me! I am heading into a new ministry at a new church in a new town. It's scary but I reckon this will be the way to make new friends! Also, I haven't seen 7 in New Zealand and it needs to be here! :-)
Angel - January 7th, 2013 at 12:10 PM
Oh Jen you really need to pick me! Let me tell you why.... I am a new Pastors wife of a small church in Sevierville , Tn. My husband and I have no experience or qualifications. Just a heart after God, strong conviction and a calling.
I came across your book Interrupted a few months ago and wow, it is my heart put into words. I read it to anyone who would listen and actually turned it into a weekly bible study with some ladies from church. I have been dying to get Seven and do the same. When I discovered it was a bible study I was thrilled! Those who are closest to me are probably scared to death that you will pick me. Ha! But I pray you do!
I have read, quoted you and obsessed to anyone who will listen about your book, Heidi Bakers, and Katie Davis' books as well. They now joke and say things like "is this from the book of Katie or the book of Heidi"? Lol Now its "the book of Jen" :-) Jen I adore your heart and can not get enough of your writings. We are small like I said and our budget is also teeny tiny so to have this gift would be just that... an incredible gift! Thank-you for having the courage to share your heart with us. I know it is not always the popular thing but man God us using you to challenge so many of us. God bless you sister!
Heather - January 7th, 2013 at 12:11 PM
7 was just what my heart was crying out for this past year! And, it's just what so many in our church need!
Mandi - January 7th, 2013 at 12:13 PM
I would love a set to go through. Have been "tricking" more into reading 7 with good thoughts coming back.
Melaina - January 7th, 2013 at 12:14 PM
We were just restarting our bible study for this winter. It is a small group of worn from all ages and walks of life, this would be perfect for us! I had been looking on amazon in hopes to order this study but nothing was out yet! Pick us!! I have a dear friend in the study with a sense if humor so similar to yours! To Skype with you would be freaking awesome!! Pick us!!!! Please and thank you. :)
Karen - January 7th, 2013 at 12:17 PM
I stumbled upon this as I sat & ate my oatmeal & a whey protein shake...this would be fantastic. I finished reading Interrupted last night for the study I'll be facilitating in the next week. When we finish Interrupted we are diving into 7. I thought it was best to wade alowly into the deep waters :)
One of my passions is help women be who they are suppose to be, to "be faithful to what is in front of them' (Katie Davis).
As some one who is fumbling through what God has next I know being or willing to be uncomfortable is key (some times I just want to shove them out of the nest). Thanks for sharing your journey!

I love you, Jen Hatmaker, whether I win or not :) I have spread your name and your gifts far and wide and am definitely the engineer of the Jen Hatmaker Train !
I would share this with my loving, hard-working group of single parent friends. They deserve it!
xoxo

I would LOVE to do this with the college small group I lead and let's face it, NO college student is going to pitch in to help cover the cost!

This would be perfect for my MOPS group in Florence KY!!! I am going to our meeting this week with a short list of titles for the ladies to choose from for our study and "7" is on it! I hope our group is a winner, but even if we don't win this discount we will still win :) by reading the book. I read it while I was in Japan last summer and loved it!!! Can't wait to share it with others.

I've never led a small group but I'd be willing to try...good stuff, sis.

My group would LOVE to have this set! A few girlfriends from church recently formed a study group and went through Interrupted. We were all moved and changed in some way. Good discussion and inspiration among each other. We took a break for the holidays and are trying to get back together again and we were planning on doing 7 this time around. I read it a while back and loved it so I thought these ladies would like to do a simplified version of it together. I can't tell you how much i would love to experience this with my friends...normal mamas who are striving to follow God's will for their lives and willing to make waves of change.

Ok, so I'm totally going to pull the "I got robbed in Lima, Peru yesterday, where I am a missionary and could REALLY use this study AND have 9 other awesome missionary friends here that would LOVE to do with me" card!!!! PS. We really did have our house broken into and stuff stolen but hey at least we can already start off the study with less stuff, HAHA!!! Nothing like having your life simplified FOR YOU!
