Online Bible Study for Determined: Living Like Jesus in Every Moment

April 24, 2019

Join the online study of Determined: Living Like Jesus in Every Moment!

Imagine waking up every single day convinced that the twenty-four hours ahead of you are a precious gift to be used wisely. Now imagine that you know exactly how to spend them to be a force for God’s good.

All too often we wander through life without appreciating the gift of every moment we’ve been given. The result? An unsatisfying life, missed opportunities to experience the joy of being in sync with God, and days marked with apathy instead of passion. Our time on earth is measured. We should want to make every moment count—not only because we aren’t guaranteed the next one, but also because this is exactly how our Savior spent His time here.

How, then, do we walk out unwavering joy-filled faith every day, determined to let go of the things that keep us from experiencing abundant life and fulfilling the plans God has for us? The answers are found in following the footsteps of the One who lived fully, because He was determined that we might do the same.

In this six-week study of Luke, we will follow the life and ministry of Jesus as we consider the choices He made on His way to the cross. We’ll intimately connect with a Savior who remained laser-focused on His mission to love the world. In return, we’ll receive a model for intentional living that we can replicate to ensure we are living each day to the fullest and making a difference for God’s kingdom. And together we’ll determine to embrace the abundant life we are promised in Jesus.

If you are ready to stop wandering and start living, join me as I teach the Determined study online!

About the Author

Heather M. Dixon is an author, speaker, and Bible teacher who understands living with a story that is not easy.

When she is not blogging at The Rescued Letters or speaking at women’s conferences and events, Heather loves to make the most of everyday moments such as cooking for her husband and son, brainstorming all the possible ways to organize Legos and superheroes, checking out way too many library books, or unashamedly indulging in her love for all things Disney. Heather is a regular contributor to Journey magazine and the author of Ready: Finding the Courage to Face the Unknown and Determined: Living Like Jesus in Every Moment.

    I had not even heard of you until 2 days ago…but God has led me to teach our ladies at church from Determined. I have led somewhat of same life as you. I have Trigeminal Neuralgia, and Fibromyalgia…. They are not life threatening…just life altering. Do I need to get leaders, students, and Dvd? I can’t wait to start it in September, I will get it before and read.

    • Heather says:

      Hi Nikki! Wow, what a story you have! Thank you so much for sharing it here. I’m sorry we are connecting over chronic illness things, but thankful you are here. I’m so excited for you and your ladies to walk through Determined with me! I’ll email you with these details also, but to lead the study it will be most beneficial for every member in your group to have the participant workbook and for you to have the workbook + the leader guide + the DVD. You can find the links to order those materials here. And don’t miss the Leader Resource Kit at that link also. It’s free to download and chock full of helpful resources.

      Cokesbury offers a convenient leader bundle here.

      If you prefer a digital streaming option over the DVDs for the teaching sessions, that is available via Cokesbury here.

      I hope that answers all your questions, but don’t hesitate to email me at if you think of anything else. I am praying for your time in Luke!
