Together We Give The Gift of Free Bible Studies | #GivingTuesday

We are so thankful for the 67 families who supported our Giving Tuesday fundraiser! With your generous donations and the exciting triple match, we received $12,622 in funds in just 64 hours. These funds will help us continue to create high-quality Bible study resources and provide them free of charge to Christian women worldwide.

Today, our ministry is participating in #GivingTuesday for the fourth year in a row. Will you join us?

Giving Tuesday is a day dedicated to generosity and giving. It occurs the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday.

It’s a day to acknowledge the power of giving, volunteerism, and simple acts of kindness. 

There is no shortage of ways to get involved in this global day of giving, and we appreciate your willingness to consider investing your resources in our free Bible study ministry.

This year’s #GivingTuesday theme is “Together We Give.”

I love this theme because it truly sums up what we do here at Living by Design Ministries.

When God gave us a vision for this free Bible study ministry, He clearly directed us toward a community-supported ministry model.

Without your prayers, your shares, and your donations—our ministry model doesn’t work.

And that is exactly as it should be!

God’s people, working together, to accomplish God’s purposes here on earth.

Your partnership with Living by Design Ministries enables us to help women, like Evelitza, grow in their relationship with God.

Evelitza's Story: Since Day One I've Been Blessed

I’m not sure I will be able to find the words to say what I want about Living by Design Ministries. My primary language is Spanish, but I have been blessed by this ministry since day one. Their Bible studies are of great help to me. I am able to study God’s Word at any time, any place, and at my own pace. 

These free Bible studies have helped me grow in my knowledge of Jesus and strengthened my faith in God. They have helped me stay strong when I am feeling weak. 

Even though they are written in English, these studies are easy to read and comprehend. I pray for God’s blessing on everyone who supports this ministry. May they continue to grow and continue to help us grow in our spiritual journies for a long time. -Evelitza from Puerto Rico

Together We Give: Free Bible Studies

Thanks to the faithful generosity of our donors, our studies are available at no cost to anyone, anywhere, anytime. Since 2017, we’ve delivered more than 61,104 free Bible studies to inboxes worldwide.

Over the past several years, God has clarified His purpose for this ministry in my heart. He has shown me the one thing we are all about.

Our mission can be summed up in two words: Bible Literacy.

Everything we do at Living by Design is motivated by our desire to build a bridge between God’s people and God’s Word.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. – John 8:32

There is freedom to be found in the truth-filled pages of our Bibles.

Yet they often remain on our shelves collecting dust while we try to tackle life’s problems in our own strength.

I don’t say this to condemn, just to inform.

This is a spiritual battle. The enemy doesn’t want us to know the truth, nor does he want us to experience freedom. His most effective strategy is to keep us busy, distracted, and disconnected from God’s Word.

Together We Give: What Do You Have to Give?

Now, more than ever, the body of Christ needs to fortify itself and seek to function biblically in a world that’s gone topsy-turvy. 

Every Christian is uniquely equipped to help build up and strengthen the universal church, and everyone has a part to play in the work of Christ upon the earth.

Including you!

As believers, we have access to enduring hope, unsurpassable peace, and unshakeable joy in every circumstance. 

Therefore, we must do everything in our power to share what we have with the world! 

This free Bible study ministry, like every other Christian ministry on earth, is a community effort.

Everything we do, everything we are, is dependent upon the body of Christ functioning in a biblical manner. 

In Romans 12:6-8, Paul wrote, “We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”

Whatever we have to give, we must give it fully, as unto the Lord. And when we freely share our gifts with one another, miracles happen

Together We Give: TRIPLE Your Impact Today!

The past few years have been marked by unprecedented change around the world. Change that has deeply impacted our lives, communities, and families. Our commitment to creating and delivering free Bible study material to Christian women worldwide must not waiver.

To finish this year without a deficit, we seek to raise an additional $26,000 by December 14. 

Please consider making a gift to Living by Design Ministries today. All donations are tax-deductible, and 100% of the funds go directly to covering the cost of our free Bible studies. 


For those of you who choose to support God’s work through Living by Design Ministries, we are humbled by your selfless generosity and grateful for your enduring faithfulness. 

With your help, we will cultivate the resources we need to reach more women with the only truth that sustains—the Bible
