FROM BROKEN HEARTS TO BRAVE HEARTS
Bible Studies for Women That Position Your Heart to Be Nourished and Connect You to Jesus
As women, we are natural nurturers. We often care for others before we take a moment to care for ourselves.
We wake up in the morning, and without thinking, start to make a mental to-do list for the day as we shuffle our feet to the coffeepot. We find ourselves constantly looking and planning ahead, but not in a joyful way - instead in a way that creates discontentment with the here and now.
That joy has been robbed from you. But it can be restored as you reconnect with your Savior, so you can live with purpose.
Do you open your Bible only to shut it again because it's simply too overwhelming?
Do you long for the days when you have "time for yourself" - when you can finally feel nourished and renewed?
Do you know that the words of Jesus water your dry soul but simply can't break through whatever is holding you back from living out of this place in your life?
If these questions resonate with you, hear this, Brave Heart - you are not alone. As the consuming battles of this world loom over you, and a single tear rolls down your cheek as you realize your need to be nourished, let me tell you this:
There is hope. There is always hope.
The struggle is real, no doubt. Our Promised Land never came with a promise of ease, but it did come with a promise to produce abundant and beautiful fruit.
The key to eternal hope is unlocked in God's Word. When we connect with Jesus, He becomes our healthy root system that leads us to produce the abundant fruit in our lives.
"I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." - John 15:5
Let Jesus Heal Your Broken Heart
But here's the problem - as women we are conditioned to try, strive, and do for others. Words that hurt can be spoken into our lives, and they leave us with an exhausted heart.
Overcoming these hurts seems to get harder and harder - so we try more and more. The enemy of your soul attempts to lead you in a direction that causes you to believe you can manufacture these efforts on your own. Satan wants to put up barriers in your life, so you forget to let Jesus heal your broken heart.
Ever so slowly, he is dropping seeds of discontentment, bitterness, frustration, and burnout into the soil of your soul. He takes your efforts and places distractions in front of you to keep you from fully encountering the living water that provides eternal nourishment to your heart.
"But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life." - John 4:14
You've heard of pouring new wine into an old wineskin, right? The new wine simply can't be contained by the old wineskin; in fact, the old wineskin will become broken when the new wine is poured in. But - here's the beauty of the trial - it is not the end of your story. The Lord wants to do something new.
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed." - Psalm 34:16
"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you." - Ezekiel 36:26
"'But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel after those days,' says the LORD. 'I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts.'" - Jeremiah 33:3
With Jesus, broken hearts become brave containing new life. He wants to reshape, renew, and restore your mind-set so that His abiding love will nourish you from deep within and allow you to live out your purpose and make a difference in this world.
- Imagine having moments of peace every day to connect with Jesus.
- Envision truly engaging in a Bible study that isn't another checked box on your to-do list but actually gives you the tools to implement a life-changing habit and impact others.
- Picture experiencing the power and love of Jesus in such a way that it consumes every fiber of your being so that you can walk in confidence and discern His voice.
Through many trials over the years - ones that eventually brought me to a place of surrender - I finally let Jesus heal my broken heart. This is how I developed the Nourish Bible Study Method. If you are like me, you've found yourself looking at passages in the Bible and feeling overwhelmed, wanting to shut it then and there.
Then there have been other times at which I felt I had to read and understand the entire passage or the time in the Word didn't count for much.
The Nourished Bible Study Series takes all of these obstacles into account. You have the freedom, and permission, not to understand it all - because no one can!
But, as women on this life journey together, we will look at God's Word. You will be able to prayerfully seek Him as you read, listen, and follow the Spirit's voice as to where He wants you to stop and find rest and connection in His Word.
Finding spiritual nourishment isn't a sprint - it's a lifelong and life-changing journey. God wants to give you stepping stones to cross the mighty river of life. He wants to take your broken heart and turn it into a brave heart as He walks beside you on the water.
The enemy of your soul wants you to do as Peter did - get distracted by the storms in life and take your eyes off of Jesus, which forces you to slip and be in over your head.

Do you have 30 minutes a day to sow seeds that will last a lifetime? We know—and more importantly, Jesus knows—you are a busy woman who’s often running on fumes. These studies were created with the purpose to renew your mind and energy, not to add tasks to your day.
"Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls." - Matthew 11:28-29
Each study is designed to create a space that allows for real and authentic relationships—both with God and with other women just like you. When we developed these studies, we had a heart to connect women with Jesus and each other through genuine friendships that are rooted in biblical truths.
At Treasured Ministries, it is our prayer that the friendships cultivated will be blessed and make room to encourage each other in Christ.
We understand that everyone has different ways they best learn and absorb nuggets of truth. This is why we want to give you a gift upon purchase that will help you take your studies even further—FREE access to our video resource that accompanies each study.
