By His Grace

Misty Phillip sits down with Arabah Joy and Jen Evangelista, who run Sojo Academy, an online community for Christian women. They discuss Bible Study and the importance of community. We discuss the Bible methods used in Sojo Academy. At Sojo, they combine topical, chapter, Biographical, and book studies. Their goal is to teach women to dig into the Bible for themselves. We talk about the importance of community, and the life of believers.
