Ponder is a beautiful and thoughtful Scripture study of twenty key touchstones of Jesus' life. An intimate encounter with the rosary, this lovely volume integrates Bible study, journaling, and thoughtful daily action prompts. You will grow in your appreciation and understanding of this beautiful traditional devotion, while deepening your love for Jesus in the gospel. This study is suitable for any time of year and is our free community study for October.

Come see what we’re studying this month…


Welcome, friend.

We create beautiful, intentionally themed and seasonal Scripture studies, tools and resources for all women to keep God’s wisdom close to their hearts in their everyday lives.

We have gathered here to share with you our enthusiasm for God’s Word and to be encouraged by your insights as you read. We want to hear your hearts, share your burdens, celebrate your joys, and pray the Scripture with you.

We love the Gospel and believe that Catholic women want to grow in comprehensive biblical literacy. We invite you to grow and learn with us, as we ask the world to intentionally pause each day and allow God’s grace to overfill our hearts.
