In America we have something called a grab bag. Sometimes it’s a bag of wrapped presents that each person gets to choose from. Other times it’s a selection of varied items, free for the taking. This grab bag contains articles and studies that are helpful, even valuable, but did not really fit in other sections. Have a look! Everything is free to use; just be kind enough to give credit to the author.

So many great resources on the internet. These are some we really value.
Looking for a great way to find out more about Jesus? He is the world’s most important person. Knowing Jesus, Diane’s chronological Bible Study on the life and ministry of Christ, is available in Adobe Acrobat format for downloading and printing. You’ll be surprised at how thorough, yet simple, this series is. It’s great for those who want to know Jesus, or just want to know him more. Knowing Jesus has been used for children, prisoners, and adults. It also works well for individual study or for group study.
This material was prepared for our own pre-marriage counseling with Malaysian couples. It does not address every possible challenge a couple might encounter, but it covers topics that cause the most conflicts in marriage. It is designed to be used with a pastor, counselor, or a mentor couple. A couple could do some of the lessons on their own, but the experience is greatly enhanced by discussing with someone ready to help couples prepare to succeed.
You may download the entire series Preparing to Succeed.
This is a 40 day study to see what the Bible says about the power of God and how his power energizes us for his purposes. Catch that idea: his Power for his Purposes. It’s not a matter of tapping into cosmic energy (The Force, as Star Wars called it) This study of the Holy Spirit gives you five days of Bible study, one day of personal application and discussion question to use in a group on one day.
