Brave the Deep

Does this sound familiar?

You open your Bible, but quickly become distracted. You want to dig deeper, but you don’t know where to begin. Frustrated, you close the book. It’s not that you don’t love God—in fact, you long for more intimacy with God.

Maybe God is calling you to deeper waters . . .

Hi, I’m Shadia and I believe you can experience deep and refreshing engagement with God’s Word, even if you’ve read it many times before.

Bible Studies

After seminary, Shadia began writing the Bible study series, BEHIND THE SEEN: Exploring the Bible’s Unsung Heroes. Gritty stories of real people with impossible challenges whose encounters with God open our eyes to His awesome power and love working behind the seen. Explore these stories through Shadia’s Bible Studies.

Tamar

Tamar, Judah’s daughter-in-law, is the first woman listed in the lineage of Christ. Mistreated, widowed, used as a prostitute… it seems impossible that God could redeem her story, but His plan of redemption was prewritten for all eternity -and nothing can get in His way.

Through this six-week study, you will discover that no matter life’s twists and turns, there is a God redeeming it all for His glory.

Legion

Tormented, chained, and living in a graveyard, the man known only by the name of the demons that tormented him had no one to help him–no one to intercede for him. So Jesus goes Himself.

Through this six-week, action-packed Bible study, you will experience God’s relentless love as you celebrate the impassioned Savior Who moved heaven and earth to rescue you.

Hagar

Have you ever been in a wilderness? Have you ever wondered, “God, do you see me?”

Journey into the wilderness and the story of Hagar. Through this 7-week Bible study, you will find that when you surrender your life into God’s hands, your trials and triumphs serve a magnificent purpose: to draw you into the arms of the faithful God Who Sees Me.

Worthy of Love

Do you struggle to forgive yourself?

Worthy of Love: A Journey of Hope and Healing After Abortion combines the power of story-telling with inspirational Bible study. This 8-session interactive study includes personal reflection questions, Bible study, memory verses, prayer, and journaling.  This is more than a Bible study. It’s a journey of hope – and a promise of healing.

“I’ve done lots of studies over the years only to be left feeling empty and frustrated by their simplicity. Shadia’s studies are different. They feed my hunger to go deep into the Scripture and open my mind and heart to a deeper understanding of Who Jesus is – and who I am in Him.”

Donna

Abandoned by Man, but Not by God

When we last read of Tamar, we discovered that Judah has no intention of giving her his third son in marriage. Though she is innocent of any wrongdoing, Tamar seems abandoned to a life as a childless widow—a tragedy in that society—but does this mean that God has...

When We Need God To Step In . . .

When we finally get our first glimpse into the life of Tamar, it’s not looking bright. In a mere two verses, she is married, mistreated (as we'll discover in the weeks ahead), and abruptly widowed. So much suffering! While these events are sobering—and this is only...

Are You Heading in the Wrong Direction?

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105) There is a reason why God’s Word is described as a light to our path. The farther we travel in the wrong direction—away from God and His Word—the darker it gets. Once we take that first wrong turn,...
