This I Know: Trusting Your Unknown Future to a Known God by Laura Dingman {A Bible Study Review}

This I Know: Trusting Your Unknown Future to a Known God by Laura Dingman is a new bible study that released on January 2nd, 2018. Side Door Communications contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing the study and sharing it with others. I haven't done a focused bible study in a while and this one sounded great, so I was all in. 

As you might imagine, with only 2-3 weeks, I did not have time to finish a 6-week study but I was able to peruse the study several times and I plan to complete the whole study when Matt and I are done with our current nightly devotional. 

First, a bit about the author: 

Laura Dingman spends most of her time creating and leading worship experiences that help connect people with the story of God. She has served in vocational ministry as the Creative Arts Director at The Creek, a large church in Indianapolis, for over a decade. She loves to show people where their story intersects with God’s story. She is the author of Life Rhythms: Learning to Live in God-Centered Time and I Am Found: Quitting the Game of Hide and Seek with God and Others. 

This I Know is a 6-week Bible study that focuses on truth from God's Word to help the readers learn to live life without anxiety and fear. This study helps readers understand more of how we can grow in knowledge of God because that's the knowledge that gives us power. 

Each of the 6 weeks has an introduction and six daily studies. I really like the six days of study because that gives you a day of rest or a day to catch up if needed. This study is founded in Scripture and includes extensive teaching from Dingman in its pages. I love the nature of the questions as they are intended to be focused and interactive. Prayer is a main focus of the study which I think can often be overlooked but this is so important to me in a study because I need that prompt. 

If you have dealt with anxiety and/or fear or are currently living through that, I highly recommend This I Know. I am not bent in the direction of either but I have found the parts of this study that I have read eye-opening and I feel it will help me relate more to those I know who are working through fear and anxiety. 

Thanks, Side Door Communications for sending me this study!
