But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations, Psalm 33:11

God has been using our group for over 45 years to come along side the ministry of pastors and local churches. The first Bible study “Philosophy of Christian Womanhood,” (PCW, 1969) was “advertised” by word of mouth and within a four year span was being used in over 40 countries.
Later that Bible study was up dated and re-titled, “Focusing on Christian Womanhood.” The basic thrust of the PCW course was preserved, only the examples and language used was changed. Many new “TIPS” pages were added focusing on issues that were not frequently experienced previously: The Single Mom, The Working Wife, The Step Mother, The Mother of Babies to 10 years, and the Mother of Teens covered some of the newer challenges. This Bible study has been translated into 7 languages (that we know of) and has been used in about 60 countries.
“The Challenge of Christian Womanhood” and “Challenge of Christian Manhood” became known as companion studies because the men and the women could study some of the same topics, but in separate study groups.
With the rising numbers of challenges in the stepfamily, there is a need to assist them on how to rely on the promises in the Scripture. “Biblical Solutions for the Stepfamily” has been a blessing as they face various difficulties.
“The Challenge of Christian Character” is one of the newest Bible studies written and published by TRI-R Ministries. Studying the life of Peter can be a means of spiritual growth for new Christians, or a challenge for those more mature in Christ. How can a person be “in” a world that has lost many of the biblical standards for honesty, loyalty, truthfulness, and love, but still maintain a good testimony for Jesus? This study helps a person reevaluate his own character traits by the standards in the Bible.
Daniel for Kids is another new Bible study for youngsters in the 4th through 6th grade. Word searches, crossword puzzles, and challenging questions will help him or her to remember some of Israel’s history and how God protected young men who were in captivity. This study also has an accompanying Parent / Teacher manual
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, “declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth. It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it,” Isaiah 55:8-11.
