Open Our Bibles Together with MFahring

Do you sometimes find it hard to pick up your Bible? To know where to begin, what you are even reading, how to study + dig deeper?? I get it, friend. I have most definitely been there too! It can be so overwhelming and intimidating for sure. I have discovered over the years that it becomes easier if you have someone to read alongside you, so please join me as we open our Bibles to read together – one chapter at a time.

Today on OOBT, we start our studies with Joseph being sold into slavery and THEN in the very next chapter we read about his brother Judah, and his daughter-in-law, Tamar, to THEN end our time together back with Joseph… but this time… in prison. What seems like a break in the narrative actually becomes crucial to our understanding of the unfolding meta...

Ok, friends, let's just start with this... there’s some really hard stuff found in Genesis 34-36. This one actually comes with a trigger warning as the subject of rape, abuse, and murder are all dealt with in Dinah’s story, as found in Genesis 34.

Today’s episode opens with a 500-mile journey (on the run) to Haran. A stairway from heaven. God’s reminder of promises He made to Abraham and Isaac (and now to Jacob). The cheater is cheated. The deceiver is deceived. And then throw in a whole lot of striving, comparison, hurt, jealousy, resentment, and competition between two sister-wives.

Deceit. Manipulation. Cheating. Favoritism. Fear. Doubt. Hatred. Danger.
Now that’s quite a list, isn’t it??

In today’s extended episode, M continues our study of Abraham’s story together. M admits she struggles to stay within the allotted time frame for episodes as she finds so many things that she feels she must share. Guilty as charged! LOL!

PLEASE NOTE:: Today’s episode comes with a trigger warning as M speaks candidly of her experiences with miscarriage and depression.


Hey friends! This one is a definite switch in OOBT’s typical content + format as M spends time openly sharing about a shattering Job season in her own life… and the ways God showed up to meet her in the depths of her despair as well as some “good” she now recognizes He brought to her life on the othe...

As M opens today’s episode, there is really nothing left to say at this point except, “Oh, Job.”

How our hearts continue to break for him. In the loss. The grief. The physical pain. The accusations of the “miserable comforters” he is struggling to call friends still. How many of us have been or even are there right now? Oh, friend.

And then there is this… Longsuffering. Not a word any of us would like to have used to describe our t...
