In a world that can feel really dark--the Bible tells us to have hope.
How do we claim hope when life is hard--when it seems like we are in an endless cycle of waiting for God to show up, when we are just plain worn out, or when hope feels like wishful thinking.
The Claiming Fresh Hope Bible study will take you on a 4 week journey to understand hope, find hope, and overflow hope to those around you.
I've totally been there too. I had three kiddos in 3.5 years and I thought I didn't have time to breathe, let alone open my Bible to hear from God. But I found a method that helped me connect with God and His Word--going deeper than just reading words on the page.
And some things started to change. I started to look forward to opening my Bible. I even started getting up earlier or sneaking into my Bible study when my kids were napping.
Who had I even become?!? This Bible study method changed me from the inside out and I know it can do the same for you.
Write, claim, and reflect on what it means to have hope in Scripture. Together we'll explore Bible passages on...
Are you ready to really dig into hope in the Bible and learn more about their context, background, and application for your life today? Don't miss as Katie goes behind the scenes with you in these 4 (10-15 minute) videos packed with Biblical truth!
Use these relatable and thought provoking questions to get even deeper into the video lessons and discuss with a small group or use as a journaling and reflection exercise for yourself.
Music is a powerful way to claim God's promises! The Claiming Fresh Hope worship playlist is a private Spotify playlist with a worship song each day that relates to the Bible verses on hope. This is one of the favorite parts of the study for many!
Bible Lesson 1: Hope is Waiting
Hope in English may mean wishful thinking, but hope in the Bible--in the Hebrew language is quite different. Join Katie as she unpacks hope as waiting in the Old Testament.
Bible Lesson 2: Hope is a Refuge
Together we explore another Hebrew word for hope meaning a refuge or safe place. We discover how hope is a safety net for us in hard seasons.
Bible Lesson 3: Hope is a Person
Hope is more than just a feeling or a wish--hope is a person. Jesus embodied hope for us and through Him we can have lasting hope.
Bible Lesson 2: Hope is a Overflowing
In our final week we unpack understanding hope in the New Testament. We see how hope changes us and how God designs it to be a continuous overflow from us to a hurting world.

Hi there! I'm a writer, online content creator, and speaker who empowers women to chase vibrance in the everyday moments of life.
I have a BA in Biblical Counseling and I'm passionate about combining the grace and truth of the gospel. I'm a true Bible nerd and find joy in researching Hebrew and Greek words, historical context, and literary devices used in Scripture. More than that, I'm devoted to the simple and practical ways the Bible touches modern life--from how to speak to our kids, to how to interact on social media, to the stories we speak over ourselves.
I'm a mom of three wild and wonderful kiddos and I'm striving to serve and love my family well without losing my sanity. I make my home in small-town Indiana with my husband, Nate, a worship pastor.
You access to the downloadable PDF Bible study, links to the recorded workshop, the playlist and Bible teaching videos in an easy-to-access online platform called Teachable! It's super user-friendly and a great way to access all the Bible study content in one spot!
It is not a themed Advent Bible study! Each verse centers around hope though so it is perfectly appropriate for Advent. I do share some illustrations about the Christmas season in the Bible teaching videos as well.
The study is regularly priced at $37. This includes a beautiful guided journal, introductory workshop, worship playlist and four inductive Bible study lessons.
That kind of depends on you! But each of the days should take no more than 15 minutes including listening to the playlist song choice.
Absolutely!! Each study is designed to be used by one person, and it is a great study to work through with members of your in-person community!
