Hi, I'm Melanie Newton. I help women learn how to study the Bible for themselves through my Joyful Walk Bible Studies and Graceful Beginnings books for anyone new to the Bible. I also teach online courses for anyone who wants to grow their Bible-teaching skills to help others walk joyfully with Jesus! I think it’s always the right time for a Dr. Pepper, that my family is the greatest, and being outside for even a few minutes is a daily necessity.

I have LOTS of Bible Studies and ministry resources on this website for you to use in your life and ministry. Enjoy!

Free Bible Studies for women—FREE to download and print for those not using it for commercial purposes (see our Copyright Policy). Download several to examine and decide which one you want to do yourself or with your group. 

Instead of printing yourself, buy the books. Once you have decided on a Joyful Walk Bible Study to do next, buy the book for about the same cost of printing it yourself — $8 - $10.

Check out what I believe and teach.

Each study guide follows the inductive method of Bible study (observation, interpretation, application) in a warm and inviting format. So, grab a cup of coffee, your Bible, and some friends as you explore God’s Word together with your Joyful Walk Bible Study.

Leading a Bible Study Group

Is Jesus prompting you to lead a Bible Study but you don’t know how to start? Are you afraid that you don’t know enough of the Bible to lead a Bible Study for others? Does the thought of directing a discussion make you quiver? Everyone feels that way at first. Really! You are so in the right place. Check out these resources.

It is my joy to be able to provide free Bible studies for women and other downloadable resources on this website. If you’ve just start working through one of my studies, hooray! I hope you enjoy it and fall fresh in love with Jesus. Life cannot be any better than knowing Him!

"As the Curriculum Coordinator for [our women's Bible study], I can only tell you how difficult it is to find inductive studies that empower women to explore God's Word on a daily basis for themselves.  Your style of study is exactly what we are looking for! This past year we completed your study, ‘The Walk From Fear to Faith,’ and the 120 ladies who participate were so very blessed by the study. Thank you so very much." (Jennifer in MA)

I want to thank God for leading me to your websight. I am looking so forward to your Bible Studies. We have the same beliefs. And our God is truly Awesome. (Teresa)

 I am so excited about your materials! I am very selective in what curriculum we use for our ladies' Bible studies and have grown to dread the search for the next season. I generally find "fluff" that is based on feelings rather than sound, biblical teaching with good application questions. Finding your website was a direct, immediate answer to prayer. Thank you! I am encouraged!!!! May God continue to bless your ministry as you seek to further the spread of the Gospel and make disciples. (Bonnie from California)

Live Out His Love is an outstanding study and we are have a great time in learning and fellowship with it.  Thank you for all your knowledge, time, and energy in compiling this work.  It is AWESOME! (Mary from Kentucky)

Melanie, just a quick note to let you know how much I am enjoying Radical Acts.  I chose to study Acts this summer as I just finished John and will be studying Romans in the fall. Your questions are spot on and I really enjoy the scriptural insights and the Your life Adventure sections.  The lay out works great for me and find that it's just about the right amount of time, in other words I don't feel overwhelmed.  I am just beginning lesson 10. Thanks again for offering this for free on the Internet.  (Marsha)

Oh my! These studies are BRILLIANT! Choose which one most applies to your current situation or and area that you want to learn more about, print, pop into a binder and start digging into the Word! I have just finished 'To Be Found Faithful' a study of 2nd Timothy. How good it is to be immersed again in the Word - for myself, not just when the girls and I do our Bible time in the morning, but for me! My next one - which I am printing out right now - is Everyday Women, Ever Faithful God. These wonderful studies give the historical background and insight into what what happening at the time, gets you digging deeper for the meaning by answering questions around the scripture and thinking on application. This type of study works so well for me. (Shirley)
