As many of you might already know, my Aunt has decided to stop blogging on Good Morning Girls for personal reasons, for an indefinite amount of time. Since she has produced and published most of the materials for our studies, including the journals, and was in charge of what books of the Bible we were studying and what the reflection questions and verses of the day were, this obviously changes things a whole lot for us. I wanted to let all my readers know what my plans are for the blog moving forward, as well as letting you all in on some exciting developments in my own life as I graduate from High School in a month.
The first, and largest change, is that we will no longer be studying through books of the Bible like we have been since we started.
I have really been praying about things, and I know that God wants me to continue to use my gift of writing to serve Him, however, so I intend to continue posting here. I haven’t figured out too much of what I want to do just yet, but I know that I will write about relevant issues to Christian boys and men in our culture today. I’m really relying on God to see where He wants to go with this, and I know He has a bigger plan than I could ever imagine.
I will be taking some time off here for the next month or so, as I will be graduating High School in late May, and things are getting very busy. In addition, I’ve accepted a full-time job this summer, which leaves me only weekends and evenings to work on writing for this blog. Because of this, I plan on posting here as much as my schedule will allow. After summer is over, I’ll be going to college to study Communications and Marketing. I’m not sure how much time college and working a part-time job will leave me, but I can assure you that I will do my best to continue helping you understand the truth.
One specific thing that you all can look forward to is a series of posts I plan on writing that should come out late June and early July. I will be going on a week-long missions trip with a group from my church to rural Uganda in early June, and I want to share my experiences with you. Depending on how it goes this could turn into multiple posts about what I’ve learned while on that trip.
In addition, In late June I will be traveling to a youth conference with my youth group. In the past when I’ve gone to this conference, we’ve been blessed with amazing teaching and times in the word, so I hope to bring back some of what I’ve learned there with you.
With all that being said, everything else is up in the air right now. I know God has great plans for this blog. I wanted to thank all of you who have read and supported me so far. I appreciate it more than you’ll ever know.
My heart and biggest desire is that everyone who reads this blog will be brought closer to Christ. I always pray specifically for others that they would know the depth and vastness of a life lived with Christ. Reader, my deepest desire is that you would personally commune with God each and every day, and know exactly who He is and what He’s done for you. I desire for you to understand and know all these things accurately, and to love and cherish the truth of Christ with all that you are. I want to spur you on to live for the glory of God, because that is the only thing that will ever satisfy you.
In the light of all this, I continue to pray that God will use this blog for His purposes, and I hope you’ll come along for the ride.

Since GMG’s started up, I’ve ordered the journals for my husband. His first was 1 Samuel, and he has been deployed and says the journals have helped him walk in his faith and stay strong with God’s promises! It was great that I could order from Amazon and it was delivered directly to the ship he’s on! We hate to see them stop, but certainly understand that God changes our direction in order to fulfill Hos plan for us! Thank you so much and God bless!

Johnathan, We will be praying for you this summer on your mission trip and other adventures. Any recommendations on Christian Youth Camps or conferences on the east coast?

I just returned from my trip to Uganda yesterday. I appreciate your prayers, God is working in amazing ways in Uganda. I plan to have a post up about it sometime early next week! I don’t know a whole lot about youth camps or conferences. The one I am attending is called D3 Youth Conference, which is being held at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I have gone to this conference for 3 years now with my youth group and it has always been very challenging, with focus being put on teaching that focuses on the gospel and how it should shape our lives as young people. It may be too late to register for that conference this summer, however. I would also recommend Passion, which is mainly geared towards 18 and up, so it might not fit what you are looking for, but I know that it is a very God-glorifying conference with amazing teaching and worship. It is hard for me to recommend anything else simply because I don’t know enough about any other camps or conferences to say what ones are good or not. I hope that helps, I apologize for the delayed response and me not knowing very much about youth camps!

Hello. I have recently discovered this resource. I am using it alongside the Good Morning Girls that I do for myself. My 12yo son is doing the Good Morning Guys.
We both started Isaiah 1~23 this morning. He mentioned seeing this website and asked to go to it.
I do not see any links for the particular study we are on. Would you be able you assist and pint me in the right direction?
I have the next advertised, The book of Luke, in our Amazon cart for him. Will there be any links/blogs or post in regards to this study?
