How to start a Lies Young Women Believe Bible Study

    Several of you have asked us for tips on how to start a Lies Young Women Believe Bible study. We think this is a great idea! In fact, we are praying that God will use you as truth speakers for your generation. We want to help you in any way we can.
    First, let me tell you about some resources we are developing for this purpose. In October, we will release the Lies Young Women Believe companion guide. It will include 35 days of personal bible study, action steps for each chapter, scripture memorization and group discussion questions. I highly recommend it for any of you who would like to start a LYWB Bible study or want explore this material further. You can pre-order it now on
We realize that many of you plan to launch your Bible studies well before October (some of you even plan to start later this month!). So, we are working on having some additional resources ready for you ASAP. Within the next couple of weeks we hope to have invitations, posters and evites ready for those of you who need them. Stay tuned to the blog for more information on these resources.  
    We’ve already created a discussion guide, which includes a series of discussion questions for each of the chapters in Lies Young Women Believe. It is currently available for you to download for free right here on the site. Simply click on “get started” at the top of the homepage. On the left side of the screen you will see a list of resources including the discussion guide. You can download it as a PDF and print off as many copies as you need.
    In addition to great resources, we want to equip you with as much information as possible to make your Bible study a success. Some of you may be wondering, “ where should I have my Bible study,” or “ who should I invite” or even “how am I going to teach what I’ve learned to others?” Some of you may feel convicted to start a group, but you don’t even know how to take the first step. Relax! If God has called you to move in this way, he will give you everything you need. We can help too. Here are our tips for how to get off to a great start.

1. Pray!

    If lives are changed as a result of this study it will be because the of power of God’s Truth and it will happen through the promptings of the Holy Spirit. It is so important that before you take action, you stop and pray. Ask for God’s guidance every step of the way. Specifically pray for wisdom as you lead others through the material found in the book.
    Ask others to pray with you. There are likely many women in your church or youth group who would be able to help in this way. Seek to secure as much prayer cover as possible for yourself, other leaders, and the girls who will be attending the study.

2.  Get some help.

     If you are a young woman desiring to teach this information to your peers, recruit an adult to help. Talk to your youth pastor’s wife, your Sunday school teacher, your mom, or another adult woman you know and trust and ask if they can help in any way. They might be willing to open their home, provide snacks, or even co-teach.
    Also, most of the issues presented in this book are very serious. You may uncover areas of sin and hurt in the lives of the girls who are participating that you are unprepared to deal with on your own. Don’t hesitate to ask for help from others. Your pastor and youth pastor are likely great resources. You can also check back here to get advice and support from others.

Note: If you ever sense that someone in your study is in danger of hurting themselves or others, get adult help immediately. Don’t hesitate.

3. Find a great location.

    It is easier to open up in an environment that feels warm and inviting. And many times non-christians feel more comfortable in a home or coffee shop than they do in a church. Be intentional about finding the meeting place that is most conducive to conversation.
Consider providing snacks or a meal. Food can go a long way toward creating a homey atmosphere.

4. Send out invitations

    Send out paper invitations to the girls you would like to have in attendance. Be sure to include the time, date, and place of the study. You can also send out an event invitation through MySpace or Facebook. Then, consider sending out weekly reminders through email or IM.
    Encourage the girls who attend to invite their friends, even those friends aren't yet Christians. If each girl who you invite, invites just one other person, your group will grow by leaps and bounds! This is a great way to get the word out to girls beyond your sphere of influence.

5. Consider the following outline.

    In the companion guide, we divide the book into a 12-week study. We combined the first three chapters, the last three chapters, and added a week to wrap-up the study and consider next steps. We also gave each category of lies (such as lies about God, lies about Satan, lies about guys etc.) a week. If you are wondering how to break up the book in a Bible study format consider adopting this format. You can also go chapter by chapter. Since there are 15 chapters in the book, you would plan to meet for 15 weeks.
    It is important that you don’t try to cover too much ground too quickly. Each chapter of this book is jam packed with truth. If you try to race through it, you might miss something important. Make plans to teach the material at a reasonable pace.

6. Feel free to throw out the schedule.

    Even though we recommend planning out a schedule in advance, we also want you to have the freedom to abandon it at any point. There may be times when you need to veer from the outline and let the conversation take a different course. There may be occasions where you need to stop everything and simply love on a girl from your group who has opened up about some sin or hurt in her life. The impact of lies can be messy. Don’t feel obligated to keep your time together clean and neat.

7. Get a copy of Lies Young Women Believe for each girl.

    Much of the information in this book needs to be processed at an individual level. Girls will need time to think through the information and process it on their own. If each girl has her own book, she can read through it and journal in between the times you meet.

8. Use this website as a resource.

    So many of you are planning to launch Lies Young Women Believe Bible studies in your own communities. You will literally be sharing this experience with girls from across the country. What an amazing pool of insight! Tap into it. Hop on this blog any time you have a question or prayer need. Commit to pray for one each other and be a source of encouragement to other leaders and participants.

    We can’t wait to hear what the Lord is going to do through you! We are thrilled that you have decided to be a truth speaker to your generation. Check the website frequently. We will be working to get resources available to you as soon as possible. Also, we’d love to hear how the power of Truth is impacting your community. Keep us updated on how your study is going. We’ll be praying for you!


HEY, GIRLS! We love hearing from you, but feel limited in the ways we can help. For one thing, we’re not trained counselors. If you’re seeking counsel, we encourage you to talk to your pastor or a godly woman in your life as they’ll know more details and can provide you with ongoing accountability and help. Also, the following comments do not necessarily reflect the views of Revive Our Hearts. We reserve the right to remove comments which might be unhelpful, unsuitable, or inappropriate.

    I actually started a study on this book a couple months ago. I think our group is doing well...and loving going through this book together. Recently we've even seen the impact of knowing that we aren't alone in a these battles! That in itself has been a huge blessing to us. I was nervous about starting a study, but its been great to see how God is moving before me! The group was kind of random, but God brought us all together miraculously fast! Thanks for the tips...I will be using them in our last few meetings!
    Oh...and I have really appreciated having the discussion guide! I've found that generally it helps to get us started, and also is helpful in keeping us on topic! Thanks!
    question for kate
    on Friday, May 9, 2008 at 8:47 pm
    Hey Kate,
    I am thinking about starting a LYWB bible study for some of my friends! I was curious how you arrange each meeting and how you long it takes for each meeting?? Sounds like yours is going well and so i would love any advice you have. Thank you!!
    do you think it would work with only a couple girls??
    response for Rose!
    on Saturday, May 10, 2008 at 4:29 pm
    Hi Rose!
    I think it would be great for you to get a study started! I know its been a stretching experience for me! :)

    Because of the time of year and busy schedules we have actually only met about every other week. So, we read two chapters (one chapter a week) and then meet up to discuss them. We do tweak the schedule some as needed. So, for two chapters we can generally cover it in an hour and a half. (but like they said, sometimes you just have to throw out the schedule...if we are having a really good discussion on one topic, I don't break it up just so we can get everything covered)

    It is definitely something you could do with only a couple of girls! My group is of like 8 of us. Its a nice size group...where if we got much bigger than that it might be a little bit more difficult (and more intimidating for certain girls to open-up and share).

    We do also have treats...thats just something fun to do, and makes it a little bit more laid back.

    Also, for the first few chapters I was actually able to pull some questions and Bible verses from the "Lies Women Believe" companion guide. I have found that several questions in there can be re-worded to apply to some of the ones within "Lies Young Women Believe". And ultimately they have the same starting foundations--the background on Lies, Truth, and Sin. So, thats something you may also want to keep in mind if you will be starting your study before the LYWB companion guide comes out. The discussion questions on the website have also been great either in starting or steering a discussion! Finally, because of the importance of counteracting the lies with Truth we do tend to look at several Bible verses. Sometimes we look up several of the Bible verses mentioned in a particular chapter. I also typed up memory verses. I used the verses at the back of the book for the "Truths that Set me Free" section and picked out several of those that I encouraged the girls to all memorize. I know from experience that Satan doesn't give you much time...if there is a foothold he will take immediate use of to have the Truths ready is something so important!

    I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions! :)
    Thank you kate

    Thank you SO much Kate for writing how you do things for your bible study out for me! I really really appreciate it. Its been a real encouragement to me to hear about another girl starting a bible studiy ! I will probably have more questions for you in the future so thanks for your willingness to let me bug you.

    We started today and have decided to have this instead of sunday school, the boys have their own study while we do LYWB. It works out great because our sunday school is 1 hour and 15 minutes. That is plenty of time for our discussion.

    Thanks so much for this great site and the chance to hear from others! We're going to use this as a summer study while AWANA takes a break. We've invited moms/mentor ladies to be equal participants so we can learn together and encourage one another. We'll pray for the other groups--pray for us, too, won't you? THANKS. bj
    on Monday, May 12, 2008 at 8:42 pm
    Thank you sosososo much! I cannot wait to show my friends at church this stuff! We are planning a bible study, and I've told them about Lies Young Women Believe. They are really interested!
    Starting in June
    on Wednesday, May 14, 2008 at 12:23 pm
    Three or four young adult leaders from my church are taking the youth girls through this book this summer. Our meeting times will be weekly, and our meeting spot will be a swimming pool that a family has offered each week. We met at the pool weekly last year for fun, but our leaders always used the time to stimulate practical theological discussions. This year we will be a little bit more "formal" in that we will go through this book. The pool is a great place to bond with the girls, create great memories, and teach them practically about modesty, hospitality (by observing the host family, and we each bring snacks), friendships, fun, and speech, just to name a few. I'm praying that God will use this study to promote godliness not only in these girls, but also in their moms. Everyone is excited about it too!

    What a great idea Jill!
    on Wednesday, May 14, 2008 at 2:04 pm

    I think your idea to discuss LYWB poolside is a great one! I am confident that your girls will feel more comfortable opening up in that environment.

    Please keep us posted on how it goes.

    We love to hear about the creative ways that you are sharing the truth from this book. Keep putting those ideas right here on the blog so that others can be inspired and encouraged.

    Hi, I am almost 21. And will be moving off to a university in August. I have been reading your book, and I want to start a Bible Study group in my dorm building. You say you won't have any of the 12 week books out til October. Will you have anything along the same line out by August 18? I know this book is focused more for 13-19 year olds, but I've noticed a bunch of stuff that I've dealt with, and that I know other college kids deal with too.

    Hi. I am so thrilled that you will be starting a LYWB Bible study in your dorm. You're right, this content is very applicable to young women in that age group.

    Unfortunately, we will not have any companion guides available before October. Be sure to check out the discussion guide that we do have available currently on this site. We are looking at making some other resources such as invitations, posters, and evites available soon.

    Let me know if I can do anything else to help you!

    what can i do i am kinda in the same thing that you were in but i am a lot younger than you will you please help me
    on Thursday, May 15, 2008 at 4:55 pm
    I was reading my daily devotion (a young women after Gods own heart by Elizabeth George) and it challenged me to start my own prayer group. I started praying about it and a few days later I was talking to my mom and she suggested starting a small bible study! I then told her what I had been praying about, and that she had basically just confirmed it! I just started reading LYWB and again it suggested a bible study. I just wanted to say thanx, because now I know that it is really from God.
    on Thursday, May 15, 2008 at 4:59 pm
    I really feel like God is urging me to start a bible study using this book as an outline. I am almost 15 and all throughout school I have been told by teachers that I have great leadership qualities. The thing is, I am terrified when it comes to speaking in front of other people! I am praying that God will give me more confidence, but I was wondering if anyone has any tips that would help me out??? I was reading thje story of moses (again!) the other day and it was encouraging to know that he was also a terrible speaker! But God still used him.

    Hey, I was wondering, what is a good number of girls to start a group with??? I know sooo many people that I would like to invite, but it probably wouldn't work with all of them. Any ideas?
    Erin Davis
    on Friday, May 16, 2008 at 1:35 pm
    I am so thrilled that you are taking this big (and sometimes scary) step toward being a truthspeaker in your generation! You asked a couple of great questions, and I want to make sure I answer them. Here are my thoughts...

    1. Regarding being afraid of public speaking...

    I know how you feel. Talking in front of others can certainly be scary, but you are so wise to study the way God worked this out in Moses' life. God never removed Moses' speech impediment, he just worked around it to do great things. He isn't looking for perfection in us. In fact, He desires all of the glory! He is just looking for a willing heart. It sounds like you have that. You can trust Him to give you everything you need to be equipped to serve.

    Also, try not to think of this like giving a speech in class (that is so scary isn' t it!) Just consider yourself a discussion leader. This Bible study will work best if you just guide your friends in a conversation about these important topics.

    2. Regarding the number of girls to include...

    I would recommend a group of around 8-12 girls. Make it large enough to include lots of different ideas and experiences but small enough to keep it manageable and intimate.

    I hope this helps. If I can answer any further questions, let me know!

    I just heard about this book. I have an 11 year old daughter who will be in 6th grade next year in middle school. Is she too young for this book?
    Erin Davis
    on Friday, May 16, 2008 at 11:34 pm
    Hi! Thanks for checking out our blog.

    There are a lot of concepts in this book that will be very applicable for your daughter. However, some of the content is probably a little mature for an 11-year-old. I highly recommend that you preview it before giving it to her. You may be able to go through the applicable parts with her now and save the rest for a few years down the road.

    I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can answer any further questions.

    good idea????
    on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 at 10:38 pm
    is it a good idea to do this study with daughters and mothers?
    on Wednesday, May 21, 2008 at 10:56 am
    my mom and I have actually been talking about doing the book as a mother/daughter study. what we were thikning of though was simultaneously doing LWB and LYWB. Start up together to cover the general subject (Lies about God, Lies about Sin, etc.)...then we would break up from there to have moms in a group and daughters in a group. We figured that we werent sure how much girls would open up if it was just on LYWB with everyone and their moms. But you never know. Anyways, then my mom was thinking in the moms' group they would look not only at the more specific LWB but also look at the LYWB and talk about how to help their daughters. So, ultimately we would want there to be discussion between a mother and daughter, but we dont want them to feel like they need to share with everyone else's moms.
    on Thursday, May 22, 2008 at 5:20 pm
    Hey Sofie,
    I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for you!
    on Friday, May 23, 2008 at 7:11 am
    Kate - thanks for sharing. I would love to hear more ideas about doing this as a mother/daughter study. My daughter just turned 13 and I just went through Passport to Purity with her. I know she is at the early range for this book, but I think it could be so powerful for the her to be able to identify the lies and understand the truth as she goes into high school. I was hoping by doing this study with other moms/daughters from her school, that I could help build some relationships that will serve us all well during the teenage years.

    Thanks so much!

    Tomorrow will be our third week with a mother-daughter format...actually some grandmas are coming too. It seems to be going well. I think best of all it is giving a foundation for discussions on issues in the home. I will be interested in hearing how it goes for other mixed-age groups. bj

    Erin Davis
    on Thursday, May 29, 2008 at 6:42 pm
    This is a great question! I do recommend LYWB for this age group. However, there is some mature content in the book, so I suggest that you preview it before starting your study.

    If I can do anything to help, please let me know!

    A bunch of girls in our youth group go together and started this study about a month ago and it has grown me in so many ways! We just read a chapter a week and then every thursday we meet at the pizza place and talk about it! Its a amazing book that I think every girl should read!
    Study to begin next week
    on Thursday, June 12, 2008 at 6:28 am
    I will be starting this study next week at my house with a group of college aged girls. As I read through the book once, I realized that maybe it was written for middle school to highschool aged girls. Any suggestions for the college girls?? I know that many of the lies of Satan still affect them and their peers. I covet your prayers for this study to open the eyes of our college students to the things they allow Satan to use in their lives on a daily basis to hinder their personal relationship with Jesus.

    Lies are not a "woman only" problem
    on Sunday, June 15, 2008 at 9:57 am
    I think it is great to educate women in these matters.
    But it would be even better to educate men in these matters. It would stop some (or perhaps most?) of the lies before they even begin!
    on Sunday, June 15, 2008 at 2:20 pm
    thank u sooooo much for posting this on ur website! i wanted to start a study group when the secret keeper girl program came to town. I sent their website a question and they said to visit this one and check it out. thx again! :)
    This is cool!

    Question about copyright type issues
    on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 11:52 am
    I'm not sure where to put this, but since it relates in a way to a bible study type thing I decided to try here.

    I have experienced first had the power of Christian forums and the ability to have Christian relationships over the Internet, it's what brought me to Christ, and I was thinking that it would be really cool to have a message board or forum for this book where girls from all over could come to discuss the book and the things they have learned, where we could pray for each other and walk in the word together. This would be especially good for those like me who don't have the opportunity to be involved in a in person Bible study. I was discussing this with a Christian adult I trust (the mom of one of my Internet friends) and she says that she would be willing to be one of the many adult moderators I think we would need.

    Basically, I was wondering if there are any licensing issues that would prevent us from being able to make the site.

    Thanks Erin. The tips were helpful. We start our Bible Study this Sunday and I think that it will be a great success. My girls love to read and we are all very close. A few of them have had a hard time getting their friends to come to church so they are hoping this will be a way to get them involved. I work for a youth ministry and I have been training under one of the greatest youth teachers I know. I am very excited to be putting more of the things I have learned to practice. To see these young ladies grow and flourish is my greatest prayer.
    I was very glad to see that they would have daily devotions and Bible verses to memorize. I also love that you have a blog. We live in a very small town and the girls have a hard time finding good Christian friends to connect with (4 out of 5 of the girls are sisters). The blogs will give the girls a chance to see that they are not alone in this fight. In a small group meeting the other day we decided to put a little twist to our small groups. We want our girls to get more involved with service and the blessings that come with it. So we are going to plan on our groups coming up with ways to serve.
    Well, thank you again Erin. God Bless
    Here we go!

    I am so proud of you for starting a LYWB Bible study. The companion guide and book are meant to work together. The companion guide has daily study for individuals as well as group discussino questions. It would work best if everyone in your group has the companion guide and the book.

    Please let me know if I can help you in any way. Thanks for being a Truth speaker!

    on Tuesday, October 6, 2009 at 2:05 pm
    I think the book is appropriate for 13-year-olds. There are several touchy subjects mentioned in the book, but Nancy and Dannah were very careful to protect the innocence of their readers.

    If you have any specific questions/concerns about why this resource might not work for a 13-year-old, I would be happy to answer them.

    starting Bible study in another country
    on Sunday, December 27, 2009 at 1:26 pm
    I'm excited to be starting a much needed group study of LYWB where we serve as missionaries, in rural Paraguay. Someone sent me the Spanish version of the book (such a big help!), but I am really interested in the companion guide. Any chance it's out somewhere in Spanish? And if not, is it available for purchase and download in English online? I could order the book to be sent from the US, but it takes about a month to arrive and I'd like to have it before our class starts after the New Year.

    Thank you for all the resources you've already posted online, and for writing a book that is sure to impact the young ladies here. Things are different here, but the lies are very similar and our enemy seeks to destroy the princesses worldwide, so we're thrilled to find your book and start watching the truth set them free. Your prayers are appreciated!

    Sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you. I had to do a little research to answer your questions.

    We don’t have the companion guide available in Spanish at this point—just the book. Bummer!

    As far as an online guide, we do have one sample chapter from the companion guide here:

    I'm sorry. I wish we could offer you the resources you needed right now.

    Let me know if I can do anything else to help.

    Mom daughter study
    on Monday, February 27, 2012 at 7:38 am
    Has anyone done this as a mother-teen daughter study together? I have one particular mom and daughter that are having a really tough time relating. Thought a mom-daughter study would be good? Thanks for your input

    This would be a great study for a mom and daughter to work through together. If the relationship is strained, it might be good for the mom to look for ways to make their time together special and unique. Perhaps meeting in a favorite coffee spot; restaurant or park each week would be fun. Perhaps the daughter would feel more comfortable if she were able to invite another friend to do the study with them.

    Whatever path mom chooses it will be VITAL for her to be encouraging her daughter in every way she can; asking daily that the Lord allows her to see her daughter as HE sees her. Praying in this way will help her relate to her daughter not based on who she is today…but who God designed her to be!

    Thanks for all you’re doing, Patty, to encourage this mom and daughter!
    Study with college girls
    on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 10:19 am
    I am going to start this study with a group of fairly mature(mentally and spiritually) college girls and I wanted to check and see if it was still applicable? I think some of the topics in LYWB seem very good, but others seem like they're aimed at high school or middle school students, any advice?

    Lies Young Women Believe was written for young women 13-19 years old, but we have received numerous testimonies from college age girls that were impacted by it as well.

    You might consider looking through a copy of Lies Women Believe. Perhaps it would be better suited for those in your group.

    You might also consider Nancy and Mary Kassian’s “just released this week” True Woman 101: Divine Design study. You can find out more at

    Praying the Lord will give you clear direction, Rachel.

    Companion guide in Spanish
    on Thursday, February 27, 2014 at 10:20 am
    I live in Spain and our church's youth group is going to use this book for the girls. I have the same problem Christie had back in 2009 with the companion guide. I am going to translate it for our group but if anyone has found a Spanish version, it would be great to know. THanks.
