Let's dive into The BLESS Method and discover how it can draw you closer to the heart of God.

Introducing The BLESS Method - A Practical Approach to Deepening Your Faith
The BLESS Method is a simple yet powerful system that will change the way you engage with Scripture and grow in your faith. It's a practical approach that will help you dive deeper into God's Word and apply its truth to your everyday life.
You might be wondering, what exactly is The BLESS Method? Well, let me break it down for you.
B-L-E-S-S stands for Bible Verse, Listen and Pray, Explore the History, Study the Key Words, and Summarize and Share what you’ve learned. Each step of this method is designed to guide you through a rich and meaningful encounter with Scripture, helping you draw closer to God and experience His transformative power.
Let’s get started with the BLESS Method:
B – BIBLE VERSE
In the first step, we start with the Bible Verse. You can select a specific passage or verse that captures your attention and speaks to your heart. Or, you are welcome to follow along with us in our Facebook group, Blessed Intentions, where we gather together weekdays to explore a monthly theme and dive deeper into the Scripture.
Each month I come up with a different theme and provide carefully selected scriptures to go along with that theme. For your convenience, you can find the monthly theme download on our website at Blessed Be Boutique and follow along with us. I go live weekdays for a short devotional centered around the scripture for the day inside our Facebook group. There you have an opportunity to reflect, gain fresh insights and experience a deeper connection with God’s Word. I try to provide you with a practical guide on how to apply the scripture to your life.
When we spend a whole month focusing on scriptures about one specific theme, it helps us really dive deep into that topic. By reading and discussing those scriptures over and over, we get a better understanding of what they mean and how they apply to our lives. It's like shining a light on that theme from different angles and uncovering new insights each time. This kind of focused attention brings lots of benefits, like growing stronger in our faith, finding more purpose in life, and being able to use what we learn in our everyday situations. It's an intentional way to make a big impact on our spiritual journey and discover new things about ourselves and God.
L - Listen and Pray.
Next, we move to Listen and Pray. Here, we quiet our hearts, listen for God's voice, and pour out our prayers before Him. It's a time of seeking His guidance, wisdom, and understanding as we approach His Word.
The third step is
E - Explore the History and meaning.
In this phase, we dive into the historical context, background, and deeper meaning of the Scripture passage. We unravel the richness of God's Word by understanding who wrote it, when it was written, and what it meant to the original audience. The time we spend learning more about the history of the scripture allows us to gain fresh insights and a broader perspective on the text.
S - Study and Savor the Key Words or Phrases
Next we focus on specific words or phrases that stick out to us within the passage. We dig deeper into their meanings, meditate on them, and let them sink into our hearts. This step helps us dig a little deeper into the truth of God's Word and apply it to our lives in practical ways.
S - Summarize and Share are the last step, but one of the most important parts. Here, we reflect on what we have learned and experienced through our study. We summarize the main points, concentrate the heart of the passage, and then share our insights with others. This step encourages us to not only apply the Scripture to our own lives but also share its life-changing message with those around us.
The BLESS Method can transform your life and overflow into the lives of those around you.
The BLESS Method goes beyond being just a study tool. It's a powerful practice that has the potential to bring about incredible transformation in your life. As you engage with God's Word using The BLESS Method, you'll not only deepen your relationship with Him, but you'll also witness your faith growing stronger and your understanding of His truth becoming clearer.
But it doesn't stop there. The BLESS Method equips you to live out what you learn in your everyday life. It empowers you to put into action the principles and teachings you discover in Scripture. It's not just about acquiring knowledge; it's about living out that knowledge and letting it shape your thoughts, actions, and relationships.
As you start on this journey of discovery and growth through The BLESS Method, you'll find yourself experiencing the abundant blessings that come from engaging with God's Word in a meaningful and intentional way. These blessings will not only impact your own life but also overflow into the lives of those around you.
So, are you ready to embrace The BLESS Method and unlock the fullness of God's blessings in your life? Let's dive in together and allow His Word to shape and guide us every step of the way. Take a few moments to watch this video showing you how I use The BLESS Method for scripture.
