GIVEAWAYS to Celebrate What Matters Most Philippians Bible Study!

*Give Away has Ended*

*If you are joining me from my Proverbs 31 Ministries devotion, Heavenly Minded and Earthly Good, welcome! I’d love to stay connected. If you haven’t already subscribed to my email updates, click here to subscribe.


Well, grab the confetti–and the nearest Bible–and help me celebrate my first LifeWay Bible study that releases May 1!! First, a little info on the study and then……SOME BIG GIVEAWAYS!!!

This world is full of struggles, disappointments, temptations, fractured friendships, and financial hardships, yet Paul’s letter to the Philippians claims we can still experience contentment, and find true joy, by prioritizing what matters most—Jesus.

This 7-session study will help you to overcome worry, develop gospel-centered tools for navigating relational conflict, and learn to pray in a way that ushers in the peace that only Jesus gives.

What Matters Most, a study of Philippians from Karen Ehman, for LifeWay.

What Matters MostA Study of Philippians is available for pre-order now at Proverbs 31 Ministries, LifeWay, and Amazon. (Some sites list it as not shipping immediately. I have been assured their info just needs to be updated and the books are shipping out now. I have seen lots of people posting pics of theirs online already. Yay! If you want a free sneak peek, grab session one as a PDF download here.)

IMPORTANT NOTE: This study comes as a book designed for group or individual use. Also, there are 7 teaching sessions available in a few forms–physical dvds, and also downloadable video or audio files available here. If you plan to facilitate a group, there is also a leader kit that includes the teaching dvds and one study guide. While the book was designed to be used with the video teachings, you may easily use the book alone as a personal study on Philippians. You would just skip over one page per session where the group discussion questions for the videos are listed.

Grab a fab bonus with purchase from Proverbs 31 Ministries!

  1. I would love to win Giveaway # 1 or #2. I have recently began my journey with God. I participated in Lent this year, I choose your Zip it, 40-day challenge. I will not say it was easy for me but it has given me the opportunity to grow with my walk with God. My church has a great Women’s group whom I have shared some of my challenges of keeping my lips zipped. I would love to bring this study to them! Thank you for the opportunity.

  2. I’d love to win any of the three! I’m hoping to do this wonderful study with my sisters and/or some of the ladies from my church. Thank you!

  3. I would like to win giveaway #1 because I would use the book as a personal study. The topic that piqued my interest was in regards to making my time with God a priority. As a self-employed woman, I tend to work inconsistent hours and my time with God gets put on the back burner, and I want to make my devotions a priority over my work schedule. Thank you for this opportunity to enter, and possibly win, this giveaway.

  5. How lovely of you to do a giveaway. I would love to enter for #2 or 3. My friend just had her baby so we are going to have a home Bible study session with friends. We wanted to do this study because the topic is a big focus for all of us. Since Lent we have all been focusing on the important things in life and what really should be important. What matters most is such a personal topic as we start families and grow in our marriages and our faith.

  6. I would love to win any of these giveaways. This winter has been tough and I’ve been in a “pit” that I can’t seem to get out of. Having a teenage daughter whose dealing with friend drama and my husband traveling quite a bit for work have been a struggle lately. I know that I need to spend more time with Jesus and make Him my priority. This study sounds perfect. I do a small group study with some women and I truly believe that they would enjoy this also. We are finishing up our current study in May and will be starting a new one this summer. This sounds perfect!

Thank you for your encouraging words and real life devotionals. ??

  10. My Bible study group is working through 1John and we are now thinking about our next book. One of the ladies memorized Philippians last year and would like the rest of us to study it.

  12. Hello! I would like to enter into the giveaway number 2 please. For months I have been praying about leading a small group for women in my church. I’ve honestly wanted to be part of a group, but not seeing one for me and through praying I’m feeling lead to possibly lead one myself. When this desire was placed in my heart months back I felt like Philippians was a book I wanted to study with other women. I log on to Instagram today and see this new study coming soon and a way to win the study for a group. I feel the Lord has heard my heart and is making a way. I pray you consider me for this gift! Thank you!

  13. “…Learn to pray in a way that ushers in the peace that only Jesus gives.” I would like to share #2 with the women’s ministry at my church. There seems to be a lot going on in the lives of we ladies and reminders of how to pray are always welcome.

  15. I am interested in all prizes. My friends and I went to a church that fell apart. Our new church does not have ladies Bible Study groups so we are doing our own. Philippians sounds like s great teaching subject for our next study.

  16. I am interested in giveaway 1 because I am struggling with staying on task with my most important goals. I often get sidetrack with “quick wins” that make me feel derailed in the long run.

  17. YES, I would like to win all 3 why because I need the encouragement Hurricane Irma 7 years of suffering trials and adversity and still going through it now and unjust unemployment plus my elderly father it would be a GOD SEND MIRACLE TO WIN please help thanks for the INCREDIBLE CHANCE!

  18. Karen, I feel as if you are my neighbor, and I know you personally because of your other studies, in which you are authentic and real as you share the Word of God. I have some of your quotes stuck in my brain forever, which is good! :-) I would love to win the 2nd or 3rd Giveaway, and since I have purchased the leader kit already, if I were to win, I would like to send it to my missionary friend Bonnie in Nicaragua. She would LOVE the encouragement and could share this study with some local ladies in Managua, Nicaragua. Also, this study is one that is timely for me…I am a survivor of breast cancer, who is always in need of learning contentment in my circumstances, joy in trials, etc. I plan to lead this study in my living room with some dearly loved women. Thank you for being you Karen and for allowing God to use your gifts to encourage and challenge us Jesus girls. :-) Blessings!

  19. Of course I would love to win any of the 3, but more specifically option 2. As I type I am packing for Women’s Retreat and our topic is Joy and our speaker is using Philippians. It would be so wonderful to use this study this summer to piggy back off of retreat. I would also use it in my program with teen mom’s. We will also be doing a summer study with them, and if anyone has know hardship it is these sweet girls. I love your love for the Lord and people Karen, and you are a mentor to me in my walk with the Lord through your books. “Keep It Shut” can I get an Amen…. Lord help me keep my mouth closed is a daily prayer.

  20. I will be selfish for a minute and say all 3 but especially the second one. At our small mission church most of the ladies, yes, including me, the imperfect pastor’s wife, struggle with life’s burdens and those going through them and how to handle it all without feeling helpless in easing burdens. Thank you.

  21. Thank you for the chance to win!
    All of the above would be wonderful!
    BUT mostly I would love No.2 so I could do this with my Woman’s Bible Study group!
