Using My New DVD Bible Studies!

Lazarus Awakening filmed in Israel
Coming in June!

I’m getting such great feedback from groups who are using the DVD curriculums for Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World and Having a Mary Spirit! We are just finishing up the final edits for Lazarus Awakening which will release in June – so exciting!

Each DVD Study Pack comes with three DVDs that hold the teaching sessions as well as bonus videos. It also includes a detailed Leader’s Guide, promotional materials, and a retreat option guide that allows you to use the teaching sessions to create a special event.

Unfortunately, there’s been some confusion about how to use the curriculums. Especially because each book already has a study in the back. Well, here’s my attempt to clarify the details! 

The Book & Study Guide Format 

To get the most out of the study, we suggest using the book and study guide. The study guide has been filled with lots of extra material and tools to help you go deeper in God’s Word, but it will also help you glean important truths as you read the book.

Participants will need:

  • Book
  • Study guide

Leaders will need:

You’ll find the Leader’s Guide on the third DVD or at the corresponding book website. (Go to to see all books). The Leader’s Guide gives a tips for leading the study, a detailed guide giving step-by-step directions for using the study guide and video pieces. It also includes a retreat option which gives you the tools to turn the video sessions into a special event!

The “Book-Only” Option 

Because not every group can afford both the book and study guide, we’ve created a “Book-Only” study option. It uses the 12-Week Bible study in the back of the book.


Participants in the “Book-Only” study will need: 

Leaders of the “Book-Only” option will need:

The “Book-Only Student Workbook” uses the same questions found in the back of the book, but provides space for participants to write their answers. The “Video Viewer Guides” go along with the ten video sessions. The “Book-Only” Leader’s Guide shows you how to combine the videos with the original study. However, I suggest you thumb through the DVD Study Leader’s Guide as it gives helpful tips creative ideas for leading the study.

Which One to Use?

Before deciding to use the “Book-Only” option, you might want to consider the price involved in printing and providing a binder for each participant. It may be that you can get the book and study guide for a price that is fairly comparable.
Either way, I am so honored that you have expressed interest in my studies. If you have any further questions, please post them here. I’ll do my best to answer them. You’ll be in my prayers!

UPDATED COVERS – Because we are  freshening all of books with a new cover to match the DVD Study Curriculum, several people have asked if they can still use the previous versions. The answer is: “Yes!”

However, when it comes to Lazarus Awakening, it’s important to know that the original hardcover edition does not include the bonus chapter included in the paperback and new cover editions. But never fear! You can download the bonus chapter here or by going to my website:
