The Fitting Room Starting Monday, April 18th!

We will be starting The Fitting Room by Kelly Minter on Monday, April 18th. We invite you to join us. On or before then, please read the first chapter which is an introduction to the study. There will be a post with a few thoughts on the introduction and an invitation for comments. We highly encourage you to make comments. This is how the interaction part of the group will work, and through our sharing we will be able to glean from one another.

We'll read chapters on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Posts to the blog will be made for each chapter on Tuesdays,Thursdays, and Fridays which you can comment on. This will give you two days to read each chapter and think through the questions, which can be found at the back of the book (pg. 193). There are 5 questions per chapter. Each blog post will focus on one or two questions. Please feel free to comment on any question from the book or to share other insights or thoughts that you have. We do not want any one to feel pressure so please know that you are not obligated to answer any question that feels too personal. Since we're not meeting face to face, the comments will be important in creating group interaction.

We are excited to go on this journey with you! If you are joining us, please introduce yourself through commenting on this post. Give us your first name, your favorite candy bar, and one other fun fact about yourself. Have fun with it and let's start getting to know each other!

Hi Ladies! I can't wait to get started. My name is Lisha and I will be cofacilitating the study with my mom. She'll be introducing herself later as she's out of town right now. My favorite candy bar is a plain Hershey's bar - no nuts! Another fun fact about me is that I would love to play Miss Hanigan in the musical "Annie", but I've never been in any kind of play nor do I have any voice training. But it still sounds like fun!

Kim here, and I am so excited to join you.
My favorite candy bar, once upon a time, was Snickers. Melted, of course.
A fun fact about me...I love all things Disney. True love and happily ever after rocks!

Patti said...

I'm home!!! And sooooo glad.
My favorite candy bar these days would have to be something with dark chocolate, even a Mint Patty.
An odd fun thing about me......I love to drive thru herds of sheep, cows or horses when they drive them from pasture to pasture. It's still a part of the "old" west that we see here in our neck of the woods.

Hi Ladies, Faith here I used to like the 100,000 dollar bar but I have since switched to the dark chocolate bar after my College English teacher started passing them out when we would read our essays. I love to spend time with God in the mornings and I love to visit with people especially my loved ones.Oh and walk my dog and spend time with children doing fun things.

Hello! My name is Katrina, I'm a new mom as of January! Loving staying at home, but headed back to work in June :( Excited about this convenient bible study... My favorite candy bar is Snickers. Another fact about myself is that I love running and playing volleyball.

Lisha said...

Welcome Faith, Kim, Patti (Mom), and Katrina. We're glad to have you with us. Thanks for introducing yourselves. And Diana, we welcome you as well. If you haven't seen Diana's comments yet, she did post one recently on Chapter 2. If there are others with us, don't be shy. Introduce yourselves and let us know you're there.

Hi Everyone! I'm Jeanette.
I've been out of town for spring break but I'm on board and excited about this study. My favorite candy bar is Snickers. Something unique about me? I had 3 of my 4 unmarried children get married last year and the last one will be tieing the knot this August. Lots of celebrating.... ...and I LOVE grandkids! :)
