    I signed up for the original group and have been in the study ever since. I look forward to it every day and it is the first thing that pops up in my Facebook feed. I’ve learned so much, been enlightened, grown closer to the Lord, and enjoyed being in a group of people seeking the Lord’s will in their life. Christy’s notes are wonderful and I enjoy reading the comments of others. It’s just been a wonderful experience!

    This group quickly becomes family — we are all God’s children and yearn to learn more about him by reading His Word daily. It’s a blessing to start off the day with our Lord.

    I have learned more in the past year in this group than I have in the past 22 years after giving my life over to the Father.

    Such a blessing this past year. I’ve learned so much. The foundation is built beginning in Genesis and continues to build. It has deepened my relationship with God. Love seeing all the people’s comments and learn from them. Christy’s daily notes and rabbit trails open up the scriptures. This is like no other Bible Study I’ve ever taken. 🌸🌸🌸

    A little over a year ago, I prayed for God to show me how to stay committed to reading His word, and He answered with an invitation to join this group. I have grown more than I could have imagined! Christy really loves the members of the group and it’s evident that she loves Jesus and she wants to share Him with others! I have always thought I had a good relationship with God, but I find myself talking to Him throughout the day and I can’t wait to get into His word every morning! I am excited to start the new cycle!

    I never would have thought I would read the entire Bible word for word…..and wanting more! The member participation lends to so much insight! Christy’s rabbit trails make you just want to jump right in and follow that trail! This has been one of the best studies I have ever been a part of! I have a hungering for God’s Word like I have never had before. I cannot wait to start again!

    I have studied the Bible for years and learned so much in that time. I’ve read the entire Bible before. I can honestly say that I’ve learned more and feel more alive in my faith after reading and studying the Bible this past year with notes from Christy and comments from many of the Front Porch Family.

    The scriptures have always been there, but the parts that have been ignored, unexplained, or taken out of context for 50 plus years have been tackled, explained, and placed in proper context this past year. This has changed my life! I realize, more than ever, that you can’t read a story here and another there, memorize a verse or even a short passage, and come to KNOW what the Father is saying to us and guiding us to do. I’ve been doing it wrong for over 50 years – no wonder I wasn’t maturing as I needed to. I thought I was. I thought I knew and understood the Bible. I was just beginning to understand. I don’t plan to ever go back to the old way of reading and studying His Word.

    I started out having to find time to do the readings – now the reading and studying are my priority. Everything else is secondary. I MAKE SURE that I get in the Word every day; I WANT to get in the Word every day; I FIND JOY & PEACE in the Father’s Word every day. I cannot wait for the new cycle to start.

    This is a wonderful Bible study, & Christy Jordan is an awesome leader & is so passionate about sharing YHWH. The whole group is very enthusiastic. It’s fun to learn & grow as we read thru the entire Bible, as a way of Life. Join us, you’ll be happy you did!

    I’ve read much of the Bible, but not in the way any book is meant to be read, starting at the beginning. Through the guidance of Christy and the Holy Spirit, these wonderful words of life have come truly alive for me! The added bonus of being able to daily encourage others in the group and read their “rabbit trails” and share my own is such a gift. We lovingly help each other grow in our wholehearted quest to know the Father and our Messiah better. We truly become family! The daily readings and study, Christy’s notes, and sharing with the members has become the best part of my day. I encourage everyone to join and change their life along with us!!

Christy is such a great leader and teacher, and this group has become like family to me over the past year. Everyone is so positive and supportive. I wake up every day excited about reading my Bible!

    I started following Southern Plate years ago for the recipes. When Front Porch Fellowship came along I joined and found like-minded believers seriously seeking YHVH as He is revealed in the Bible. My time of Bible study is my favorite part of the day. I get up early, (between 5:00 and 6:00), fix my coffee and settle down with the Word. Christy offers comments & rabbit trails to stimulate the brain and the scriptures nourish the soul. This works great for me. Thanks Christy for making it so easy & enjoyable to learn & share.

    Our family has been going through a difficult season and, while I haven’t been able to login every day, being part of this group has made me more accountable for trying to stay caught up with my Bible reading and provided a real sense of community. I have really enjoyed reading Christy’s commentaries; they have been kind of a down home way of navigating some challenging passages.

    I truly love this group! I have learned so much and it has helped me grow in my faith and understanding of God’s word. I don’t know where I would be if I had not been in His word this past year, nor do I want to know where I would be. I’m really looking forward to the next go round and to find out the new things He wants me to learn.

    In spite of believing in YHWH my whole life, I never read the Bible cover to cover. I’ve always relied on women’s Bible studies and Sunday sermons to teach me GOD’s Word and for the Pastor to determine what I needed to hear that week. When I go to church, I always feel like the sermons are directed at me, in a good way, but now…now I feel like that every day! I have learned so much through this process and look forward to gleaning even more this next go round. I found out about this study by following Christy on her Southern Plate platform, but I will forever be grateful that she allowed me to be a part of her Front Porch family.

    Please give this group a try!! I started October 2, 2019 and have enjoyed my year of growth with the reading of His Word. I have gained more than I ever expected through the readings, and all of Christy’s gentle persuasion to keep on going!
    So looking forward to this next adventure with my siblings!
    Thank you, Christy for Southern Plate, which I joined years ago, and for introducing me to Seeking Scripture!

    Sending Hugs and Blessings to all!!

    I have enjoyed reading the Bible and having someone to point out the parts that are sometimes difficult to understand. I look forward to starting my second year of Bible study with Christy and this group.

    I am finishing my first year with this group. So thankful for Christy and all my new siblings, Christy’s notes and rabbit trails are spot on. If you are seeking for a closer relationship with YHWH, come join Seeking Scripture on the Front Porch.

    Wow, Christy, you have inspired me to read the Bible again. Thank you for the past year. I’m ready to begin on the journey with you again. What a blessing this has been for me. My husband reads your notes as he reads the Bible and he loves what you write. Thank you and God Bless you and your passion to follow His word.

    Christy and this wonderful group have been a true blessing to me in the study of YHWH’s Word. The daily notes from Christy, her leadership, and the comments and encouragement of other members have been a boon to my developing a closer relationship to YHWH and a deeper understanding of his Word.. I will always be thankful that Christy accepted me to be a member of her Front Porch Family.

    The Front Porch Family and Deep Diving bible study has truly been a blessing. I have attempted many times to read the entire bible but would always get bogged down at some point and give up. This time I am thrilled to say I am going to make it all the way and I have learned so much more this time. Christy’s notes and comments from “the family” have brought a much better understanding. Thanks to this study I have been able to answer my Father’s call to draw closer to Him.

    I’ve read the Bible through several times but this was indeed different. It kept me on the right track. I knew each day what to read. I made a commitment to do this. I was encouraged to read the rabbit trails which did make things clear. I found it hard to miss a morning reading. I knew I could go back later in the day but this became a necessity for the mornings. I learned about Jesus from Genesis to Revelation. I learned to do a few things I never even thought about as making unleavened bread. I love the Old Testament if we should call it that but according to Christy it’s just the Bible, all 66 books. I would encourage anyone, no matter how many times you’ve read the Bible to join this group. I will anxiously await January 1, 2021.

    What a blessing to begin every day in THE WORD and to know that my brothers and sisters are all reading the same words that I am. Reading from Genesis to Revelation helps build memory for the verses and I found myself being able to recall Scripture relating to events in my daily life. The words on the page come alive as I read them. I find myself understanding more each year as we go thru the same stories. I also find things that I never noticed before and eagerly ask for my brothers and sisters for insight and clarification on things I may not understand. All the answers to our questions are in the scripture…..even if it is only to tell us that we are not to know everything. One day, standing at Fathers’ Feet He will tell us everything.

    I want to invite you to our family!
    Front Porch Fellowship
    We read the Bible together beginning in Genesis and ending in Revelations. I have learned that having a FIRST HAND relationship with YHWH and knowledge of HIS WORD keeps me happy and my arrow going in the right direction! Everyone is helpful and many times I have asked a question or needed a clearer understanding and every single time I reached out there was a kind person to direct me to the area in the WORD to answer my question. Sometimes, someone else’s question helped me along my journey. Christy and her team of admins are precious and I just know if you join us you will blessed in so many ways! I know I am 💜
