Week 1 Discernment: Discussion Questions

Hello dear sisters! I hope you have been enjoying week 1 of our study. There is so much good stuff packed into this week. I want to share with you a quote from the authors from page 15. “According to Paul, right thinking leads to right living. If what you think about womanhood isn’t shaped by sound doctrine, chances are, you’re not going to live in a way that pleases the Lord. Discernment, grounded in a clear understanding of God’s Word, is the first critical element of true womanhood.”

Here are some discussion questions. You can share your thoughts and comments here, write them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you.

  1. What are some doctrines (teachings) about womanhood that are commonly expressed in popular media and contemporary culture?.
  2. Can you identify an instance in your life when unsound thinking resulted in unsound, unhealthy behavior? Can you identify an instance in your life when the Word of God changed your thinking, and this resulted in sound, healthy behavior?
  3. Identify a current or past situation in which you weighed several options, and tried to discern what was “pleasing to the Lord.”

On page 35 of our homework we were asked to write out a Romans 12:2 as a prayer, personalizing it and ask the Lord to help us become a woman who is grounded in the Word of God and who is able to discern His will. I would like to encourage you to do that!

We have a group of women meeting on Monday evening to do this very same study. Click here to watch a clip of our Monday night group discussing week 1.

True Woman 201: Week 1 Discernment

Hello sisters welcome to week 1 of our online Bible study; True Woman 201: Interior Design by Mary Kassian and Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth (Nancy Leigh DeMoss). We are so excited you’ve decided to join us for this study!

As you work through week 1 be sure to check in here for additional posts. If you get behind that’s okay, the posts will always be available here.

I want to share a paragraph from the authors in the introduction. “The Lord is the ultimate Designer. And He has a divine design for womanhood. He wants to come in and do a radical renovation of your heart. He wants to change you from the inside out. If yo let Him, He’ll give you an extreme makeover…a brand-new interior design. The change won’t take place overnight. But the outcome – a heart and character like His – will be grander than anything you could possibly have envisioned, better than anything you could have done on your own. And it all starts with trusting Him enough to hand Hi the keys to your heart, asking Him to make a beautiful work of art out of your life. And it doesn’t end there. God wants to use you as part of His make over team to help others experience His grand, interior design for their lives!”

This study is a great addition to the first study, True Woman 101: Divine Design though can be completed without having done the first study. However, we would highly recommend going back through the first study when you have the opportunity. The posts from True Woman 101 are still here on the blog so you can watch our videos with your sisters, read our posts and watch True Woman 101 videos. Lots of great resources were shared so take a look so you can enjoy the whole picture about womanhood.

Once you’ve completed the homework for this week click here to watch the True Woman Week 1: Discernment video.

Come back on Wednesday for our Discussion Questions. You can share your thoughts and comments with us here, jot them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you. Please let us know how we can pray for you throughout the study. Have a great week!

In His Love,
