Hi! My name's Kendra Schwarz and I'm honored to be the P31 OBS manager with the exciting job of helping lead you in Bible study for the next six weeks.
There are a lot of disappointments we experience in life. Heartbreak in relationships. Frustration in failed plans. You know, the plans you worked so hard to control. It all seems like a lot to handle. But that’s why we’re here. To stand shoulder to shoulder as we figure out how to deal with life’s disappointments.
Let’s kick this thing off, shall we? And what better way to do so than to hear from the author herself? To start every week, Lysa, Melissa Taylor (Senior Director of Online Bible Studies and First 5), and I sit down and talk about life's circumstances and how sometimes, it's just not supposed to be this way. Check it out below to hear more!
- New option available! Don’t have time to watch the video? We also have the audio available if you need to listen in your car, while you get ready in the mornings or even at your kids’ practices!
Something we love to do around here is study the Bible, so we have an extra resource for you called our Bible Study Companion. For these, we have two very sweet and skilled teachers, Wendy Blight and Sarah Travis, who have handcrafted an additional lesson for each week that takes you deeper into what we’re reading in our book!
And, just in case you want to know what’s coming up each day this week, check out the Week at a Glance resource below to find out what’s suggested to do when.

I also want you to remember something, okay? You’re here for a reason. The ad you saw on Facebook, the friend who mentioned this book, the email you received inviting you to this study? Yeah, that was not a coincidence. We’re praying you find hope amidst the pages of Lysa’s book and the life-giving answers in Scripture.
Now let’s get to it!
