Trim Healthy Mama Book Study – Pre Study Details
If you are reading this post and you are intending to join us on the book study – welcome!
This post will explain everything you need to know for Monday 9th January, when we start.
We will all start reading together from the 9th onwards. The only things you need to do in advance are –
Find / buy / borrow / download one of the plan books
Download the study guide
Join the Facebook group
Get a notebook and pen
Check your calendar
The Plan books
If you don’t already have a copy of one of the two plan books, then they are available from Amazon. There is still time to order and join in as we have two weeks for section one.
The Study Guide
You can download the study guide straight from the Trim Healthy Mama website on this page here. We will be using the scripture based guide. There is very little difference between the two, just a couple of extra questions on the scritpure one. If you wish to skip the scripture based questions then you are welcome to do so. You will need to download this to computer or print it if you want to write straight on it. I will also be listing the reading and questions here every week so if you have any problems downloading it, you will be able to follow along from the blog with a notebook and pen. I have adapted the reading so that you can use the original book or the new plan book – those details will not be on the downloaded study guide but will be here on the blog post on the 9th.
Join The Facebook Group
We are building a really thriving community of ladies who are all planning to study Trim Healthy Mama together. You can come and join us by requesting to join here. I am actually British and live in England, so if you are not approved to join straight away, don’t worry. The timezone means that I get a lot of requests while I am asleep and you are all still awake! You will be added to group but if you are concerned, then comment below and let me know and I will check that you are added ready for Monday.
Check Your Calendar
We are all in different timezones so the study needs to work for everyone. How it will work therefore, is that each Monday, I will list a blog post in group that details the reading for the week ahead and the questions we will be answering. Section one has quite a bit of reading, so we will be spending two weeks on it, but I will explain that in the post. In the Facebook group, I will then add the questions as individual threads on the Thursday. This gives us Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to read and Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday to answer questions, chat and figure it all out. You will just add your answers to the threads and see what everyone else has answered. This is NOT set in stone – you follow along at your own pace and ability. I will link all the questions in the pinned post so that those that join late or fall behind can still find the questions for the week they are on and join in. You are NEVER behind! Just read and answer at your own pace – this is about you learning the plan for yourself and that is all that matters. If you get stuck or need help, start a thread and ask. There is no such thing as a silly question and this plan can be hard to get your head around at first. I would much rather you ask and we can all help, than you miss out on learning how to follow the plan for yourself.
The dates for the study are as follows
Section One – 9th Januray
Section Two – 23rd January
Section Three – 30th January
Section Four – 6th February
Section Five – 13th February
Section Six – 20th February
Follow up – 27th February
The follow up is just time to chat, catch up, get started on plan and ask more questiosn when they arise and so on. There is no end date for the group to close, so you can keep reading and answering as long as you need.
I am really looking forward to our getting started on this study. Please remember, you will only get out of it what you put in and so you need to join in, answer questions, ask questions, chat and support each other if you want to have the best experience.
There will be a new post here on Monday 9th, that I will link in the group.
See you then x
