Breaking Free

 

My bible study just started back, and we’re doing Breaking Free by Beth MooreI did this study years ago, and truly did break free! I can tell you where I was, the date, and the circumstances of my life …. when I literally offered it up to God, and said: “Please, Lord, break these chains.” I literally felt a weight lifted, and I’ve walked in freedom ever since! Now that’s not to say that my life is perfect; far from it!  But I did let go of self-destructive behaviors, and truly embraced and accepted that God’s ways were much better! I trusted Him, and chose to believe Him.  He saved me from myself. I still get emotional when I think about just far down in the pit He reached to pull me out, set my feet on solid ground, and put a new song in my mouth!

Because I believe so strongly in this study, here’s what I want to do. I want to give away a Breaking Free DVD kit. It comes with a full set of DVD’s, a leader guide, and a workbook. My hope is the person who registers to win this, would gather at least 5 or 6 women (they’ll need to get their member book; $15 at Lifeway) and do this study along side us!  Would you be willing to do that?

Register your name and email address in the comments section of my blog, and we’ll randomly draw a winner on Friday, February 28 at 9 a.m.

And one last note…whoever wins, I definitely wanna hear back from after you’ve completed the study!

    I love Beth Moore studies, and I haven’t done this one. Sounds like I need to. Thanks Carmen!

  4. Kimberly R February 27, 2014 at 11:55 am #

    I’d love to register for a chance for my women’s group to win this! I’m sitting at my desk working and listening to the Morning Cruise as I always do and something made me stop and really listen closely to Carmen talk about her experience this morning. Thanks so much for the opportunity! Happy Birthday Carmen :)

  5. Melissa Berryman February 27, 2014 at 11:56 am #

    I’ve done several Beth Moore studies, and she’s truly gifted in presenting God’s promises and Word in a real and applicable way. I’d love to host another study of hers.

  6. Kathy H February 27, 2014 at 11:56 am #

    I was in this study about two years ago myself and I agree with you Carmen, it is one of those studies that you want EVERYBODY to do! I want everyone to “break free!” It changed my life! I actually bought every woman in my family one of the books – it’s that good! There are so many women around me that still aren’t free and I would love to have this study with them.
    Happy Birthday!! :)

  7. Susan Griffin February 27, 2014 at 12:08 pm #

    I couldn’t believe it when you announced that you would be giving a copy of breaking free out. I was driving to work at the time and going over the next bible study we would do for our next ladies bible study and breaking free kept coming tome even though i kept wanting to go with a 7 week study. Felt like a God moment. Sign me up. Win or lose breaking free will be done.

  8. Melissa Cock February 27, 2014 at 12:10 pm #

    Love the simplistic wisdom Beth Moore offers! I’ve prayed for the Lord to give me another taste of real freedom… remind me what it’s like to live without chains! Thanks for the opportunity.

  13. Carol Sales February 27, 2014 at 12:25 pm #

    Carmen, I have been doing this study with the book only–on my own. I would love to share this with the women’s group at my church. I have been thinking about leading a study and this would be the door that could be opened. I was so excited to hear you announce the give away this morning!
    You guys keep me laughing and crying in the morning on the way to work. Thank you.

  14. Susan Griffin February 27, 2014 at 12:25 pm #

    Oh and Happy Birthday Carmen.!!! Hope you have a wonderful God filled day.

  15. Lynne Streitmatter February 27, 2014 at 12:34 pm #

    I was very blessed by this study many, many years ago. Right before I was to meet with a friend that wanted to talk, this study came up in a conversation with another, totally unrelated friend. When we met and I discerned a need, I was thinking to offer to work through this study with her, as I wanted to do it again myself. While I am praying about it and trying to discern, CARMEN starts talking about it on the morning show, which I totally enjoy in my commutes to get my boys to school(s). I would enjoy having the study to offer and even perhaps do a small group.

  16. Donald Stanton February 27, 2014 at 12:38 pm #

    I am both a sergeant at Lowell Correctional Instittuion Work Camp where I work with the female Youthful Offenders and I run my local church’e Youth Group, as I am a Local pastor as well.
    I think the message that Beth Moore is sending through this Bible Study is the right message at the right time for both groups.

  17. Lila Gabbard February 27, 2014 at 12:39 pm #

    Carmen, I’ve never done a beth moore bible study, but I believe I need to do this one, Breaking Free.

  18. Carissa Slate February 27, 2014 at 1:07 pm #

    I really would like to win this Beth Moore series for my aunt. Over the last few years she has become more immersed in her faith while at the same time becoming hypercritical of those around her. It makes me uncomfortable to talk to her when she is always questioning what I am doing for God and if I am following all these rules she has come up with. What happened to forgiveness or watching our for our own sins first? I really hope this series can help her break free and embrace God’s love and forgiveness as well a commitment to live for Jesus.

  19. Susanne J Berns February 27, 2014 at 1:08 pm #

    This morning while driving to work, and again finding myself in an terribly dark place in my life, I heard you talk about “Braking Free” so I said maybe this is what God is telling me to look into.
    Life certainly can be a huge challenge sometimes, and even if my problems seem small compared to others, there is so much badness, I am having a hard time seeing God right now.

    Thank you for all you do Carmen, Oh and Happy Birthday, funny enough I have a friend named Carmen who also has a Birthday today.

  20. Lynn L February 27, 2014 at 1:10 pm #

    I would love to share this bible study with my friends.

  21. Shawna Gibby February 27, 2014 at 1:27 pm #

    This would be an amazing gift in my life and to offer to others!

  22. Aimee Heden February 27, 2014 at 1:32 pm #

    Would absolutely love to win this!

  23. Melinda Michel February 27, 2014 at 1:33 pm #

    Happy Birthday Carmen! May God bless you with many more!!! A few months ago my client told me about the Beth Moore, Breaking Free, study. I completely forgot all about it and this past Monday I was cleaning out my car and came across the sticky note where she wrote the info and then two days later I hear you announce this giveaway. Well we all know with God there are NO coincidence’s! God Bless you :)

  32. Tricia Marble February 27, 2014 at 2:51 pm #

    Happy Birthday Carmen! I have been looking for a Bible Study to do and this would be awesome! I would love to get some ladies together and do this. Actually, I would probably do it with my ladies that I teach with (I am a teacher in case you didn’t guess- lol). All of us have chains/bonds and oh how I long to break free! Would love to win! Regardless of whether I do or not thank you for being so inspiring in all that you do! Friends sharpen friends and you really do that!

  33. Lori Hutcheson February 27, 2014 at 2:52 pm #

    Happy Birthday Carmen! Thank you for sharing on your birthday. I love Beth Moore’s studies but have not done this one yet. I would love to be able to not only share the study with a group of my girlfriends, but I would also love to be able to share the study with my college age daughter so that she could go through the study with her bible study group of college age girls as well. How great it would be for these girls to be able to “Break Free” so much earlier than many who remain “chained” into their later years. Have a blessed day & your year to come.

  34. Rhonda Bryant February 27, 2014 at 2:52 pm #

    Please register me for the Breaking Free study. I know the ladies in my bible study group would gain much from this study. Happy birthday and I pray it’s a blessed day! Thank you!!

    We just started small life groups at our “newer” church to reach out to women.
    I would love to have this book to start with our group and encourage other life groups to use as a study. I would also use this for my moms senior group.
    Love u Carmen!

  37. Susan Charalambous February 27, 2014 at 2:53 pm #

    First, Happy Birthday Carmen. I am currently doing a Bible study at my church and would be very interested in doing a Beth Moore study. Thank you for offering this to your listeners.

  38. Daphne Hoehn February 27, 2014 at 2:54 pm #

    Happy Birthday!!!
    I live at Shepherd’s Village, a ministry for singles mothers. We have bi-weekly Bible studies and I think this would be a tremendous study for the ladies to get involved in. Thanks so much!!!

  40. Patty Baechler February 27, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

    I am currently reading When Godly People do ungodly things by Beth Moore. Happy Birthday Carmen!

  41. Julie Pearson February 27, 2014 at 3:00 pm #

    Happy Birthday Carmen! Thank God for your giving spirit. I would love to have the opportunity to bring the Breaking Free study by Beth Moore to the women in my choir. I am the choir director and have a fabulous, God centered choir but we don’t have the chance to be together in a different, more intiment way – I believe this would allow us to do that. I would love the opportunity to bring us into a different circle and a different place this summer (after the focus and stress of preparing for our two Easter programs has passed) so we can “break free” together. I know I need to and I am sure they do as well. Abundant Blessings!

  42. Jody Siefert February 27, 2014 at 3:03 pm #

    Hi Carmen,

    Wow this sounds so AWESOME!! Im a new believer, just about a year into my walk with Christ and can’t get enough. I was blind and now I see! God has promised me many things and showed me many things about being a leader. Im surrounded by a great group of Christians, some new like me and hungry for all they can get, some just born and some that have been walking with the Lord for 30 years. Im on fire for Jesus and would love to share this. Blessings to you Carmen!

  43. Anne Fox February 27, 2014 at 3:06 pm #

    I did this Bible Study many years back and could certainly use a second time round with it! Beth is totally awesome with her teaching skills. Carmen, I think you are awesome, also! :) Love hearing you in the am on the way to work… helps get me off to a great start. And I also am an Alabama transplant. ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!

  44. Angela Nielsen February 27, 2014 at 3:06 pm #

    Happy Birthday, Carmen, and thank you for this give away. I know that whoever wins will be blessed. Thank you for allowing God to bless others through you. :)

  45. Johnette Jones February 27, 2014 at 3:10 pm #

    Wow, it amazes me how God works! I have had this book for at least 6 months. A friend did the bible study and recommended her and I get a group together and do it. I never followed through. My church has approched me to lead a community group of young mothers. I have put them off. Not feeling “qualified” to do it. Then I heard Carmen on the radio and God started working in me. I went on the website this morning to get the title of the book and saw the giveaway. It amazes me how God works and speaks to us throughout our daily lives. Thank you Carmen for being used by God and touching peoples lives.

  46. Kim French February 27, 2014 at 3:12 pm #

    I’ve been praying about trying to get some ladies from my neighborhood together for a Beth Moore Bible study. This would be perfect.

    I love Beth Moore and have been wanting to do one of her studies; albeit,I had envisioned myself participating. The thought of leading a study causes my heart to race, but I worked through that and registered anyway. :-)

  54. Rhonda Tillman February 27, 2014 at 4:47 pm #

    Hi Carmen! I have been doing some soul searching lately. God is working in me and I need to learn to break free and let Him work in me. I truly believe this study would benefit me and I would love to share with my friends, who knows they could be feeling the same : ) Thanks for all you do!!Your a blessing for sure : ))

  57. Leann Rademacher February 27, 2014 at 6:12 pm #

    I heard you talking this morning about this. I just recently moved from the St. Louis area (and listened to that other Joy FM station I have heard you all talking about that ISNT affiliated with you all- which I didn’t know – :) . ) My move in many ways was to Break Free!! I love Beth Moore and attended the live simulcast she recently had. I have always known Christ as my Saviour, but I too found my identity in who I was from others standpoint and didn’t always listen to who I was as created by our Heavenly Father!!! Many people ask me- Why did you choose FL? Well, all I can say is GOD!!!! I literally just opened my heart and prayed to God- “Please show me your will and where I need to be.” Boy has He come through in BIG ways at a difficult time! Having been blessed to be led to a wonderful church- we are starting a new Woman’s group and don’t necessarily have materials that we are using yet. I think this personally would be an awesome study- but also for our group!! Thanks and sign me up for that drawing Girl!!! :) May God bless you all for definitely adding JOY to my life right now in my transition. You all are a God Send and I am blessed by you all and by our Awesome God!!!!

That is EXACTLY how I feel and I’m over it….ready to break free! I would be honored and humbled to lead a group of women through this study. What an amazing opportunity! Happy Birthday!!!

Carmen you are such an influence in my life. We have a lot of the same struggles and I love to hear you share you feelings!!! Marlene – I also have a February birthday!!
