Shelli Virtue grew up a pastor’s kid, graduated from a Bible college, homeschooled her 4 children, is a full-time caregiver to her disabled adult son, and was the vice-president of a youth center. She lives in Minnesota (I know, crazy…right?) with her equally crazy (oops! I mean special)(oops! Did I just say that?) husband. Her deep desire is to encourage women to be the best possible woman, wife, and mother they can possibly be through her thought-provoking Bible studies. She isn’t afraid to ask difficult questions and be open to creative ways of thinking in her approach to better her relationship with God and others.
In the book of Mark, Jesus is seen and portrayed as a humble servant. By using him as our perfect example, we explore the book of Mark to see how Jesus effectively lived out this approach to life. Jesus views humility as 1) having the proper view and acceptance of your own tremendous value and worth and then 2) seeing and embracing the incredible value and worth in others.
Unpacking Your Pain
We will be using the book of Lamentations as a guideline for how to completely work through our pain. The book of Lamentations is written in an acrostic form through the Hebrew alphabet. This form is used to express the completeness of walking through the pain. It starts at the beginning of the Hebrew alphabet and expresses sorrow with each section beginning with words that correspond with each sequential letter in the alphabet all the way through the entire process of lamenting.
The Road To Relationship
It is a 6-week study that looks at the 26 attitudes and actions Jesus portrayed throughout the book of Matthew. “The Road to Relationship” is an in-depth study of Jesus’ interactions in the book of Matthew for people desiring close and intimate relationships through a purposeful approach that empowers them to improve their relationships.
Shelli has a way of making you wonder what
on earth she is thinking. It kinda makes you stop and think. Has anyone else ever thought that?

ACURE For Good Intentions
We desire deep connections and relationships, but can’t bridge the gap between good intentions and actions that matter. Our days are tiring, wanting, and unsurprising. Life feels…off, ho-hum, ineffective. However, our hearts, desires, and intentions seem to be in a good place. What did the disciples discover which could change our lives from everyday-ordinary to uncommon, amazing…even revolutionary? A CURE!

Making Money from My Ministry
Making Money From Ministry I grew up a pastor's kid, so I know that we all believe in our heads that pastors should get paid when they commit their full life to serve in a church. However, when a church is small, that typically means the salary for the pastor is also...
