A Free 3-week Bible Study
with Sarah Koontz
Study Released in October 2018
If you have ever wondered who Jesus Christ REALLY is or questioned His relevance in your life, I invite you to join us for the “Before I Go” study. All you need to complete this free online Bible study is 15-minutes per day and an e-mail address.
Jesus Christ stepped away from the crowds to spend His final moments with friends.
He knew His hour had come—His time on earth was short—so He did what any good leader would do: He offered tender instruction to His disciples, assured them of His love, and gave them one final assignment.
This detailed account of Jesus’ final words and actions in John 14-17 helps us see Jesus Christ for who He really is.
These words, penned by one of Jesus’ dearest friends, reveal the heart of the Man, the Messiah, and the Redeemer. They are the gospel truth that brings freedom, joy, and transformation into our lives.
THE “BEFORE I GO” BIBLE STUDY WILL HELP YOU:
- Understand Who Jesus Christ Is
- Receive the Free Gift of Salvation
- Invite others to Accept Jesus’ Invitation
- Study and Apply God’s Word to your Life
- Pray With Absolute Confidence
When we get to know who Jesus Christ really is—understand why He came to earth and humbled himself to the point of death upon the cross—we are completely transformed.
As you go through this three-week study, you will notice every day is titled with an action verb. They are actions you can do right now! And every single one of them is a reaction to what Jesus Christ has done for you.
Thanks to the generous donations we receive from our Support Team each month, this study will be offered free of charge to anyone who wishes to participate.
You will receive a welcome letter (+ a free gift) within an hour and the first devotional will arrive in your inbox tomorrow morning.
Please invite your friends to join us!
Topics Covered in our 21-day Study of John 14-17
Throughout the study, you will receive daily e-mails including a brief Scripture reading and devotional along with shareable quote graphics. I encourage you to set aside a minimum of 10-15 minutes per day to complete the study, but don’t be surprised if you are tempted to linger a while longer over Jesus’ powerful words.

The "Before I Go" Study Includes FREE Audio Downloads
We are excited to announce that we have included an audio version of the daily devotionals in each Before I Go e-mail—making it easier than ever to learn on the go! We understand how busy life can be and are committed to creating free tools and resources to help you succeed at Bible Study.
We like to think of our studies as fine dining flavors with the convenience of fast food. Each day is jam-packed with Biblical truth and practical application, yet it is easy to understand and can be completed on your mobile device. A perfect fit for the on-the-go lifestyle of twenty-first-century women!
We want Bible study to become the highlight of your day, not something you have to force yourself to do “just to keep up with the homework.” And we believe this audio version of the study will make it easier than ever for women to grow their faith on the go.
All of the daily Mp3 audios are less than 10-minutes long and include both the Scripture reading and devotional.
Free Digital Gifts from our Creative Partners
We have partnered with several talented Christian Creatives to develop digital gifts to complement the study material. As you can see above, we’ll dig deep for five days each week, and then we’ll take a bit of a break to enjoy the free digital gifts.
