The Identity Project–Lesson 1
Welcome to the first lesson of our 8 week study on our true identity in Christ.
Just some little details you might be interested in:
1. The bandaids on my arms are from a flu shot and tetanus shot earlier in the morning I recorded this lesson. I tried to pull off the bandages but they were super-glued on and it just hurt too bad to pull it off.
2. If you notice the crockpot behind me, you might think I’m super-domestic girl…there is roast and potatoes in there and it’s the first meal I have cooked in a week.
Here are your documents for the todays’ lesson.
Listenting Guide with homework and reflection for after you watch the video.

Take a minute and introduce yourself. Tell us where you are from and what got you connected to this Bible Study.
My name is Katie. I know Bobi Ann from Willowbrook in Huntsville, and I was already thinking about identity when I saw the title.
Hey Katie! So glad you’re doing this study with us!
Way to go Bobi Ann! I just enjoy your teaching heart and your willingness to share God’s word with Christian sisters. Thanks for using your spiritual gifts of study and teaching to inspire others.
I saw it advertised on Facebook!
I’m Terrell and I met Bobi Ann while I attended Fredonia Hill while I was at SFA. I saw the info on FB and decided to check it out.
Barbara Alarcon told me about this study and forwarded the info. I live in Round Rock, and a terminal illness in the family. I need to feel like I am worthy of talking with God and hearing him reply. I need his help but sometimes don’t feel worthy. I’m hoping to develop my communication with the Lord and confidence in myself.
This is really helpful! I’ve been dealing with some things recently and I need this. I look forward to studying more.
What are your goals for this particular study? You can be as specific or as general as you’d like but I encourage you to share your goals for accountability sake.
I want to be secure in who I am, what I do, and how I present myself. I’ve made progress, but last year I changed almost everything and I’m still rebuilding a life of significance, service, and satisfaction.
I just want to really focus on building my identity in Christ because I struggle with what my value lies in so many times.
What do you find as one of the hardest parts of taking on your true identity in Christ? Is it lack of knowledge? Lack of execution? Or maybe it’s just the pull of the culture? What is YOUR hardest struggle?
I believe our God is redeeming everything, and that the life to which He’s calling me includes some form of all my desires, interests, and strengths, but I still can’t make the pieces fit. I want to know what my One Thing is, have it be the goal that unifies everything I do, and be excellent at it.
My biggest struggle is the way everything I do relates to being a wife and mother. My entire universe revolves around my family and while that isn’t automatically a bad thing, common struggles seem magnified.
