As I finished this study I will focus on Psalm 23 for recovery! I realize the Lord is my Shepherd and He is here with me right now. I will rest in his loving arms and be transformation in Him. Thank you for reminding us of the battle and lies of fear! I just got slammed a bit with my fears and memories on page 46. But you were right there to put me back together with the remainder of the lesson. Truly this is a life changing study for me and I have only begun. I am all in on Psalm 23!
Donna (verified owner) – :
We are finishing up the last lesson in the Psalm 23 study. I just want you to know that it’s been really wonderful and 40-50 women have loved their new discoveries in this well-known psalm. You’ve done an excellent job of making us work at the application in the workbook lessons. The songs (especially “Safe in the Arms of Jesus”), the personal stories, the look at so much Scripture, etc. has made the study so relevant to our lives. Thank you from all of us “Psalm 23 women”.
Laurena (verified owner) – :
I have just started the lessons on the second one but I am learning new things and I like the style of the writer. Easy to understand informative and thought provoking.
Dona (verified owner) – :
I’m enjoying and being encouraged by your Bible study. Looking up all the words and scriptures really expands my understanding of Psalm 23. And your playlist is so encouraging and thought provoking. The songs add even more depth to my study of Psalm 23. I listened to “Room At The Table” and it reminded me once again – God has set the table not me and He has sent out the invitations not me. My well being depends on God – our Shepherd…What a comforting thought. I will trust in Him. Thanks for your study.
Mary (verified owner) – :
Having memorized the 23rd Psalm as a young girl many years ago, I finally took a good look at it with you. Your words and thoughts made it so precious to me. I think “I get it” for the first time. As I interact with the people around me, I find those words of comfort, hope and love entering in my conversations. I’ve never considered myself “honored” by the Lord before. It is so humbling. “You Prepare a Table Before Me” and “You Anoint My Head With Oil” chapters really made me see how God’s presence is all around us at all times. I’ve dusted off this chapter and made it shine in my life. Thank you for leading me back to it. God has blessed you with so much humor, sisterhood, and wisdom into His word.
Mae (verified owner) – :
This study gave me a deeper insight into the lullaby the Lord sings over me. I got such a clear picture of how much He cares for me. Word searches were so enlightening to further understand the depth of His love, care and comfort only He can provide.
Cheryl (verified owner) – :
What an encouraging study and reminder of how the Lord is our Shepherd.
Eloise (verified owner) – :
What a marvelous look at God.
Grace (verified owner) – :
Thank you for making what has always been a favorite psalm so much more meaningful.
Janice (verified owner) – :
Thank you for creating Bible studies that instruct us and this one has brought our group closer than ever before.
Susan (verified owner) – :
God is right on time with what we need and this study hit the spot. What a blessing “Psalm 23” has been.
Lonnie (verified owner) – :
I am so much enjoying your Bible Study on Psalm 23. I’ve studied sheep and shepherds for over 2 years. I know there are Christian books already written, but I wanted to determine by reading, actual shepherd stories, the relationship Jesus meant for us to have with Him.
I was sad to run out of books to read or borrow. Then came your book! Wow! Heaven for this lady. Reading about sheep and shepherds relaxes me, makes me smile, and makes me feel loved.
What I like about your study is the frequency of looking up Scriptures. Some studies teach a lot, but I like to “discover”. And I think it’s so important that we stay in Scriptures ourselves for growth and discernment; which also makes me love your encouragement and directions to do a little research on our own–another need I don’t see addressed.
That all combined with the tone of “Let’s have coffee together.” I’ve done other studies that attempt that, but you’ve pulled it off. I don’t know how you’ve done it differently, but I do feel like I’m sharing Jesus and Java together. And it certainly would be fun in real life.
Thank you so much for your study. I look forward to picking up another study by you.
Kathy Ecklebe – :
Incredible journey through a very familiar passage of scripture. I used to view this passage as the “funeral passage” but I see it through a completely different lens. What an amazing study!! It’s an in-depth view of my role as a sheep and the promises that my Shepherd has for me.
Chosen – :
Absolutely marvelous dive into God’s heart of how He desires to: be present, provide, care, guide, restore, direct, protect, associate with, honor His believers during this life on earth. Signs off with God’s beckoning believers to know they have an eternal home with Him. Enjoyed being overfilled to share God’s promises with others. Plus it is a must to view the DVDs to capture the essence of God’s character in each of six verses. Our group did not want to end the Psalm 23rd session, but informed them verse 6 concludes the 23rd Psalm. So we plan another bible topic using Jennifer Rothchild’s bible study books and DVDs for our next group session.

Marilyn Hoffman – :
This was an absolutely AWESOME bible study! I’m still thinking about it even after moving on to a new study at my church. I would say this is the best study I’ve done since Priscilla Shirer’s Gideon which I did a couple years ago. I am still quoting Psalm 23 to myself and remembering what each verse is telling me. This is one that will truly stick with you. Thank you, Jennifer, for putting this together in such a a way that digs deep into your soul.
Lyda Miller – :
I have loved this study and really don’t want it to end. I feel like I know my Shepherd even better and how I love being in Hie wonderful Flock with you Jennifer. Thank you for leading us to a wonderful understanding of a very familiar Psalm. Looking forward with another study with you.
God bless you.
Mary Larson – :
Excellent study! I loved everything about this study- (still have a few pages to finish)…the video sessions gave me so much information to think about and things I did not know. It is a well-rounded study- videos ( you can download a transcript of the video sessions), and a music playlist to enjoy, as well as a workbook. I did this study through Proverbs 31 and signed up for extra teaching sessions—not to be missed…Don’t miss this study!!
Leslie – :
This was my first study with a Jennifer and it certainly won’t be my last. What she brought out of 6 lines/verses in the Psalm we have all known most of our lives was thought provoking and so calming. At a time in this world when many of us feel we are in the valley, her words brought such serenity and joy to me, personally. Another joy is just listening to Jennifer as her style and her uplifting style of teaching brings the scriptures’ message to us in the most perfect way,
Marianne Bischoff – :
II haven’t finished it yet, because it’s such a rich feast on the Word of God!! It’s made me think about the Psalm in ways I’ve never thought about before!
It’s impacted my life and my friends as we talk about the meaning of so many words in the Psalm. I’m glad I’m not finished yet!
Kathy – :
This bible study has been a true blessing to me. I loved how we deeply examined each verse for a week – all the different aspects of it. I have learned so much about God’s love for us – digging deeper into scripture and the Playlist that you provided was a source of peace. Really understanding that God is all we need makes me remember to come to Him with everything!! Thank you Jennifer – this has been a blessing to study God’s words of comfort, peace and trust!
Beverly – :
I have enjoyed this bible study more than any other study I have ever done. It was amazing how God gave you so much to share about these familiar verses. I have read this scripture so many times, but for the first time it really hit me he is MY MY My Shepherd……..I am the sheep. I just never realized how much the verses do describe our relationship to Jesus. The insight the Lord has given you is just amazing!!!! I plan to start back over the book and go through it again at a slower pace just to savor all the teaching!!! May God continue to bless your ministry!!!!.
Pam – :
I totally enjoyed doing Psalm 23 The Shepherd With Me. This is a study I will probably go back to again and again to review the scripture verses and commentary that provide a thorough understanding of every verse in this psalm. Not only is the workbook a great tool to help the reader unpack each verse and discover how our Lord watches over and cares for us, but the videos of Jennifer’s teachings were the icing on the cake after completing each chapter. Her warm and engaging ability to use anecdotes from her life and others, which she weaves together so seamlessly with expository teaching, makes this study one that is easy to personalize. Even though I’ve read this psalm many times throughout my Christian life, I now have a greater revelation of our Shepherd’s presence and care that I can hold close to my heart. Jennifer is a gifted Bible Study teacher who has provided a meaty study for any believer in Christ no matter their stage of growth. I highly recommend it!

Susan – :
Loved this study. It broke down Psalm 23 verse by verse and really made me think about things I had not thought about before. Loved Jennifer”s teaching videos, she has a way of explaining that really helps me understand. Great study by yourself or as a group
Jen – :
This bible study really drew me into learning more about our God and how we should experience the valleys we go through in life. Finding joy in the times of sorrow and pain leads to a more fulfilling life. It was very uplifting to hear that our valleys do not define who we are and neither do our sins because our Shepherd takes care of everything! The bible study was easy to follow and very hands on. I looked forward to Jennifer’s videos each week. It was like having a little 20-minute retreat each time she posted one! I definitely got a lot out of this bible study and I am looking forward to her next one. Jennifer is a very candid person and I appreciate that about her. She let’s you know and feel that you aren’t alone in your struggles. I was very grateful for this bible study and especially for the time in my life that it came along!
Tiffany – :
I really enjoyed the Psalm 23 study. I was given a new perspective of this Psalm. It is helping me to be okay with being a sheep and letting Jesus shepherd me.
Jennifer allows God to use her to be am awesome teacher of his Holy word
Phyllis Olley – :
This is the best bible study I have ever had the privilege to participate in. I will never read or see the 23rd Psalm the same way again.
Breaking the study down verse by verse gave me a new insight on the words David gave us about his Shepherd and just as important what it means to be one of his sheep.. I could watch the video every day and learn something new. Please get this study and share it with those you love. My life will never be the same. I have the Safe necklace now and it reminds me every time I look at it that I am “safe” in the arms of Jesus.
Marilyn Mick – :
I highly, highly recommend this Ps 23 study! I saw it in a bookstore on Aug 23 and knew I was supposed to get it- even though I felt like I “understood and had already memorized this Psalm”! It has been my LIFELINE these last two months. During this time, my aunt passed, and eight hours after her funeral, my mom passed! We were supposed to have a wedding in our family that did not happen and the funeral for my mom was the same weekend. My mother in law was hospitalized at 95 and then went to live where my mom had been cared for well. My daughter in law had a baby 5 weeks early, was in the NICU and then the baby was in the ER with low heart rate and had turned blue! My husband’s aunt passed exactly one month later. Lots of speaking and ministry happened too.
I was literally walking in green pastures- being fed as I walked, seeing the valley of the shadow of death and sitting at the table He had prepared, as the enemy was threatening my new grandchild. I have LIVED in this Psalm and have needed it every day. I am SO GRATEFUL for the Lord teaching through Jennifer that God created us to be sheep who NEED a Shepherd. What a priceless gift. Thank you so much.
Grace Regan – :
I loved psalm 23 bible study. Thank you for making what has always been a favorite psalm so much more meaningful.
Bev Newman – :
Psalm 23 will always be one of my favorite bible studies. I will never look at Psalm 23 the same. You will learn so many wonderful things about our Good Shepherd. I love that it is His good pleasure to bless me with peace and rest in green pastures. I love that He wants to bless me until my cup overflows – but sometimes it is up to me to remove my hand from covering my cup so that His blessings can overflow. I love that goodness and mercy wait for me each morning and want to follow me throughout my day.
I very much recommend this wonderful study. Be blessed as you learn the fullness of His love for you.
Kelly (verified owner) – :
Hands down one of the best Bible studies I have ever done. Not only did I learn new avenues to use online tools to search scripture. I learned so much from digging deeper. The idea of being safe with my Shepherd resonated throughout the entire study. In fact it inspired me to write out my own interpretation of Psalm 23 and what God kept saying to me.
I am safe
God is my Shepherd
I am safe
I am without nothing
I am safe
As I choose to follow Him
I am safe
He leads me to green pastures and beside still waters.
I am safe
He restores my weary and wounded soul and gives me hope
I am safe
His paths always lead me into righteousness because His name is at stake
I am safe
Darkness may lead me through a valley that seems endless but
I am safe
You are light and Your glory shines through through the darkness and I have nothing to fear. Your rod and staff protect me.
I am safe
You set a glorious feast for me and invite me to come and dine
I am safe.
My enemies are present but You are my shield and protection.
I am safe
You make me fragrant when I sit in Your presence and lift my head and there is no guilt or shame.
I am safe
You fill me up until I am spilling over
I am safe
You surround me with Your kindness and deep compassion and they chase me for the rest of my days on earth
I am safe
One day I will dwell in Your house forever and ever. Amen
I am safe.
Sherry W – :
So much insight in 6 verses! Love this study! You must get this so you too can see how much your Shepherd loves you!
Brenda Locken – :
Very timely study for me, gave me some truthful perspectives on what Christ wants me to know about Him and my participation in this Kingdom relationship. I would like more scripture studies. Thank you. Great job Jennifer, keep seeking Christ’s directions.
Amy – :
I have done a lot of Bible studies over the years, I can even say decades, and this study on Psalm 23 was one of the most challenging and most rewarding. I am so thankful Jennifer calls us to look in the Scriptures for ourselves, as well as taking the Scriptures she has given. I also really enjoyed the playlists in the “reflection” day. I look forward to doing another study soon. This was a tremendous blessing to my life. I highly recommend it.
Linda – :
I loved this study!! Digging deep into all the word meanings really made this word nerd happy. Understanding word by word how God is our Shepherd and we are His sheep, how He never leaves us (even in the valleys) and how we will have eternal life with Him in Heaven.
Shelly-Ann Clarke – :
Psalm 23: The Shepherd with me is an excellent way of understanding what it means to have God as one’s shepherd. It is full of depth and has added new meaning to the psalm. I now live in deeper awareness of my similarity to sheep and my constant need of God, my shepherd, every moment of my life – in both good and bad times. I am comforted knowing that my shepherd cares for me and will always be with me.
Anonymous – :
I loved this study! Jennifer did an amazing job of bringing new life into an already familiar and loved Psalm. I took it online through Proverbs 31 Ministries. I’m anxious to introduce it to a small group study in January. I will definitely be taking more of Jennifer’s studies, this one was such a blessing!
Betsy – :
As I finished this study on Psalm 23! I realize the Lord is my Shepherd and He is here with me right now. I can rest in his loving arms always and forever. Thank you for reminding us of the battle and lies of fear! . This is a life changing study for me. Thank you for the music that I could listen to along with the study. The Lord knew I needed this study at such a time as this.
Karen – :
This study was worth the time. I would recommend the book but would like to add that the online study would be a great benefit. Each word in each verse has so much meaning and application!
Mitiz – :
I loved this Bible Study! There are not enough stars to rate this one! What a comfort learning more about our loving Shepherd. Jennifer is absolutely wonderful! She brought it all “home” so we can really apply this to our lives! I have shared this with several people already. Thank you, Jennifer! I am trying to take my hand off my cup.
Shirley Schuy – :
I found this the most amazing way to unpack all the wonderful verses of Psalm 23, I really started to understand all the underlying things that challenged me. I found it interesting to be compared to a sheep but I soon understood that I can and do sometimes follow the “crowd” of ignoring my God and His true will for me.
I developed a new understanding of standing beside still waters and there were no green pastures but I stood and looked over fields and could imagine being in God’s presence as I surveyed the scene in front of me.
I learned so much
Kristie Walters – :
Jeninfer has a way about her that goes straight to your heart and to the heart of the matter. You will see what the true love of the Father feels like when you do this bible study.
Guaren – :
The truths and insights Jennifer draws from this Psalm is life changing! Sometimes passages like these are so familiar, we feel like we can’t learn anything new. Well, think again. Look at your Good Shepherd in a fresh and refreshing way!
Her additional resources for this study, some of them free, are a valuable addition!!
Kari – :
I love this study so much that I have done it twice. Once with a group of fellow teachers and then with a wonderful group of ladies at my church. It is amazing how so few words contain such an in-depth revealing of how much Christ loves us!
Betty Bastress – :
Thank you for revealing psalm 23 in a new light for me. The Good Shepherd is there in every verse leading, loving and providing for me. The resources made available helped so much in leading the study and helped the ladies’ in the study as well. We made our bronze key bookmark to remind us we are safe in the arms of Jesus and we were all singing along with the cd at the end of each video. I look forward to doing another study with Jennifer.
Patty – :
I learned the 23rd Psalms in Sunday School and have repeated it many many times in my life. Through this study, Jennifer has opened up a whole new exciting way to look at it. This help me to really see what great love my Shepherd has for me and just how He cares for me. Thank you Jennifer for helping me to not just read Psalms 23 but to want to live it!??
Joy – :
“The Shepherd with me” was such a good study! Just starting the first couple of chapters I thought oh this is good but it is not taking me very deep…after that it took me very deep and I got to do some deep cleansing within my heart and soul that definitely needed to be cleansed. The realization that he is here with me always and constantly no matter what! I could reveal my broken places and have him come in and put a healing balm over those places… I learned to ask for forgiveness and repent, which freed my heart (broke down walls) to make more room for my Heavenly Father! And more room for him brings joy, peace and love to my world! Hallelujah! Super awesome study!!
Angela Consterdine – :
Wow what an inspiration Jennifer has been in this truly in-depth study of Psalm 23!
I loved it from start to finish even though my study guide took ages to arrive. I loved everything about it and intend to revisit it regularly. The truths encapsulated in those 6 small verses can so easily be missed and Jennifer just unravelled each one so carefully. Thank you and I’m not doing the next bible study because I want to explore Psalm 23 more!
You will be blessed by following this study- repeatedly !
Cynthia – :
What a blessing. Has been front and center of my thoughts every day. Love Jennifer and can’t wait to take another study with her.
Marsha Rodriguez – :
This was the best study yet! Your videos spoke so much love and truth of God. I have listened to them all at least 3-4 times because I kept getting more wisdom each time. You took 6 “simple” scriptures and showed us how much more is waiting to be revealed if we will look at each word. Thank you for that. I also loved how much scripture you pointed us to and tied it altogether. I will walk through each day now with a much clearer view and perspective on each situation I encounter.
Julie – :
To be honest, Psalm 23 used to be a passage that I just browsed at on the back of many program inserts at the funerals of family and friends. I’ve known Psalm 23 my whole life but never really understood the true essence of it. When first coming into this study, I was more drawn to the illustration of taking time out of my busy life and finding rest rather than viewing myself as a vulnerable sheep and God as my Shepherd. However, this study has completely changed my viewpoint of Psalm 23 and brought me such hope and peace in knowing that God does all things for my good. I will no longer view it as a funeral passage of the “shadow of death” and remember sad times. Now, I will rejoice when I see it and read it because it reminds me of all I’ve learned from this study and how much my Shepherd cares for me. How much He wants to provide for me, protect me, and share His presence with me. I can also live out my life as if heaven is on Earth because as Jennifer says, “This is why we dwell on heaven before we dwell in heaven ” Forever!
Janie – :
Thank you, thank you Jennifer for sharing your wonderful study! I signed up thinking HOW could she talk for six weeks about a short Psalm. Oh my goodness, you brought Psalm 23 to life in a way I will never forget. Thank you for your research and personal stories. We bonded immediately with similar almond and dentist experiences. ha Blessings. 😉
sarah Abbey – :
I was so blessed by this study of Ps 23. It shows the love of our Shepherd in so many ways. Each verse comes alive with new meaning too. Jennifer is a wonderful author and teacher. The workbook brings you a deeper meaning too with ways to see each verse in depth. Don’t miss this study.
goofiemom – :
This study was amazing! She took one verse at a time and analyzed each word resulting in an insightful outcome that simple and easy to understand.. There were a ton of “ah ha” moments. The Psalm is very powerful and very practical. I think it has become one of my favorites. It is impossible to participate in this study whether in a group or by yourself and not get anything out of it. It is hard to find time for things these days and this is definitely time we’ll spent that you will never regret taking.
Martha Bechard – :
I found this Bible study motivating, fun to study the word meanings, and looking into other verses and chapters of the Bible. I so looked forward to the weekly videos with Jennifer. She was uplifting, reassuring and really made you thinking about the verse we were studying.
Kay – :
I loved this study and so did everyone else in my group. We have one more week and we are all so sorry to see it end! Jennifer made the 23rd Psalm come alive. I loved doing the homework with all the word and verse searches. We were all over the Bible! This was a wonderful study. Most of us want to do it again!
Cathy Hanover – :
This study was absolutely wonderful! Psalm 23 is so loved and well know but our group loved the fresh look/incites with this study. We all can away with a new appreciation of “The Lord is My Shepherd.
Christy Grant – :
Learned so much from this familiar psalm. There’s so much depth to it that I had never even guessed at. So glad I went through this study. Now to remember all I learned. Definitely keeping this book handy!
Julia – :
I am so grateful that I participated in this study. As a child I have learned this psalm off by heart but through this study I have gain in depth knowledge of who and how my shepherd cares for me. He has chosen me, he knows my name, he anointed me as his child. I feel safe and secured knowing that he leads and guides me to peaceful pastures and quiet waters.He provides all my needs. Daily he blesses me. His goodness and his mercy follows me. I have learned that I cannot run away from his goodness and his loving kindness. Even during periods of difficulties and struggles in my life , i have this assurance that my shepherd is with me. Another reassuring fact is that he has prepared my future for me. He has prepared a home where I will live with him forever. I am not alone I have a relationship with my good shepherd.
Debbie Brooks – :
Thank you so much for this Bible Study, the 23 rd Psalms , I highly recommend it to anyone . it shows us just a reminder the the Lord is our Shepherd !
Tanya Kroes – :
I am on the very last Green Pasture Day of the Study and what a trans formative study it has been. I am so sorry that it is over.
I had no idea all the depth that this 6 verse Psalm held and I loved the way that Jennifer describes and explains what it means. The Psalm 23 playlist of songs was so powerful. To listen to those songs while doing the study was such an encouragement.
I love Jennifer’s sense of humour and all of her personal stories that help us make a connection to what she is trying to explain for us making us closer to our Shepherd.
I loved all the looking up of scripture, making us dig deeper in the Word and also in ourselves.
This study honestly felt like I was sitting at Jennifer’s glass kitchen table having coffee with her and personally doing this study with her.
I cannot recommend this study enough. One of the best studies I have ever done.
I cannot wait for Jennifer’s Haggai Bible Study coming out next year.
Karen Hinkle – :
I have been in Bible Studies for over the last twenty years. I am writing a review because this one was different. It gave me more than head knowledge. It met the needs I am dealing with so accurately as if it was written just for me. Jennifer Rothschild has a God given ability to write and SEE what the Lord wants her to write and lets the holy spirit feed the sheep the way the Lord wants them fed. Ps. 23 is the best study I have ever enjoyed. Thank YOU Jennifer for allowing our Lord to use you this way……..to allow others to See through eyes that have no sight while on this earth. They see better than many others whose eyes refuse to see. Your word pictures are still vivid in my mind, I rate her a triple A+
Liz Stryker (verified owner) – :
Thank-You for creating PSALM 23 – “The Shepherd With Me” Bible Study. It has God’s Anointing written all over it! Your gentle and humble heart is a clear reflection of our Shepherds goodness and mercy to you and in you!
For me personally… I was going through a dark valley when I began the study. I needed healing, comfort, soul restoration for brokenness and vulnerabilities I wouldn’t face, I needed renewed confidence in the love and care of my Shepherd for me. After 7 weeks of studying Psalm 23 with Jennifer Rothschild and my Online Sisters in the LORD I can say with confidence the LORD has restored my soul, leads me in paths of righteousness, anoints my head with oil (His Holy Spirit’s Power), His rod and staff correct me which brings comfort and pulls me back to the fold in safety! My Shepherd gives me rest and peace and joy and fills me with goodness, His love and mercy! His voice is truth and not the lies of the enemy which rip at our souls.
I loved the entire study but my favourite was WEEK # 5 DAY # 4… “MY CUP RUNS OVER!” The LORD refilled me with the beautiful blessings HE has poured into my life, so full, so rich, so free to OVERFLOWING! I have abundance and best of all are the Spiritual Blessings our Great Shepherd pours into my life and soul! He has filled my life to the brim my cup is full and running onto my saucer as Jennifer states so well! My great Shepherd has filled me through this study once again to the brim, to the fullest, overflowing with fullness of joy! For those who drink of this cup rejoice in the fullness of Christ! I will never forget this study or GOD’S timing for bringing it into my life! I will review my study book often and may even do the study again someday. I will make time to listen to the Playlist of songs from the Psalm 23 Study… a beautiful list of songs for every verse in Psalm 23 and put together by Jennifer! In my kitchen window sill sits a little wooden plaque with the saying “Be so filled with JESUS you overflow!” I purchased it after doing this Study. Thank-You to our Great Shepherd for using your faithful sheep Jennifer Rothschild to create this dynamic Study that impacted the life of this sheep and countless others.

Julia – :
I am grateful that I have decided to participate in this study. It is the first time that I attempted on on- line study and I have been inspired by the teaching of Ps23 . As a child I learned Ps23 by heart but now I have acquired an inept knowledge of this same psalm. I have learned who my shepherd is and how he goes about taking care of me. He has chosen me, he knows my name and has anointed me as his child. I feel safe and secured knowing that he leads and guides me to peaceful pastures and quiet waters. Everything I need he provides.Daily he blesses me. His goodness and mercy follows me. I have learned that no matter what I do I cannot run away from his goodness and his loving kindness. Even when I go through difficult times in my life of which I had many my shepherd is with me. Another reassuring fact is that my shepherd has planned and prepared my future for me. My present and future is in his hands therefore I lack nothing. I have decided to follow my good shepherd all the days of my life.
Trillah Baker – :
I was so encouraged by this study on Psalm 23. I had been feeling stuck and stagnant. Each week’s study on a different verse of the psalm was filled with truth, hope, and encouragement!
Thank you for sharing how a shepherd cares for his sheep and how that translates to OUR Shepherd guiding and caring for us!
Proverbs 31 Ministries – :
Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies Studied Psalm 23: The Shepherd With Me. When asked what they’re taking away from this study, here’s what participants said:
– Challenged the belief that we can do everything … study helped to lift a weight off my shoulders
– I am now comfortable fully depending on God (no longer take pride in self-sufficiency)
– This study gave me a calm reassurance that God will protect me and fight for me.
– Opened my eyes to how deeply God cares for me.
– Helped me realize that it is okay to be a needy sheep. I have learned to appreciate being so dependent on God.

Just look at all of these positive reviews for this book and video study on the 23rd Psalm! Let me add another one to the collection above! I just led 25 women from my church in this study, and everyone really enjoyed it and grew from it. I am the Women’s Bible study coordinator and one of the Bible study leaders at my church, and I choose what we topic/book we study. Any time a new Jennifer Rothschild study comes out, it’s a ‘no brainer’ that we will study it! Keep ’em coming, Jennifer!!!

Our small bible study group were given a different insight into 6 memorizable verses, which all knew or thought we knew before this study. Each week brought us closer to the One who cares for us daily. A great look at how this Psalm is a current day-to-day walk,…

I have always loved Psalm 23, so I was very interested to see how this study would make this Psalm come more alive for me. Jennifer Rothschild, through her book and videos, helped me find deeper meaning in this passage, a better understanding of how Christ views me, and a good understanding of the context of this scripture. I’m so excited to share this study with the women in my church!

What a wonderful study! I was blessed by God to lead this study as part of the Women’s Ministry in our church. For seven weeks, Jennifer walked us through Psalm 23, verse by verse and word by word. Psalm 23 was probably the first Bible verses that I memorized as a child and I have quoted it all my life. However, I never really pondered the depth and the richness of this psalm. To hear and fully understand what it means to have Jesus as my Good Shepherd, to have Him lead me to green pastures and still waters, to have my soul restored by Him and be led in the paths of righteousness, to feel His presence as I walk through the dark valleys of this life, to know that I don’t have to fear evil because He is with me all the way, to sit at His table and have my head anointed with oil, to be comforted by Him, knowing that His goodness and His mercy follow me, and then to look forward with assurance to the day when I will dwell with Him eternally is the essence of what it means to me to be called a child of God. This study truly impacted me in a profound way. As our group studied and discussed the psalm, we saw Jesus in our midst as we shared and grew closer to other women in our church. Jennifer is a marvelous teacher and keeps her study Bible focused while bringing God’s word to us through her beautiful teaching style. I so enjoy Jennifer’s teaching and hope to do more. Praying continued blessings on this ministry on Jennifer and her family.

This is my 1st study of Jennifer’s, and it has become one of my favorite Bible Studies. Jennifer is so down to earth with sharing what God has laid on her heart for this Chapter in the Bible. She taught the WORD in ways that are clear to understand, and you can easily apply what it teaches. The study has literally changed me in ways I can’t describe. You will not want to miss this one . . I am looking forward to another one of her studies.

I did this study through Proverbs 31 Ministries and LOVED it! I have always heard this Psalm at funerals and equated it to that, but this study showed me a completely different message, my Shepherd is with me always, providing, healing, giving, forgiving… this study truly has touched my heart. I absolutely recommend this study to anyone who wants to get closer to God, to experience Him in a new way. Thank you Jennifer, I am proud to be a sheep!

I love the way the Word of God comes alive for us and this study brought His words to life for each woman in our study. We all heard of and had read or studied the Psalm….Jennifer brought us so much depth and the Lord used different parts of these truths to minister to each heart. We split each week into two parts so we could share more and pray for each other. I would encourage all woman to do this study…and if you are blessed to have different ages in the group all the better!!!!

My favorite and first memorized verses, Psalm 23, as a child. This study brought it alive and so much more personal, My Shepherd. And your style of communicating and relating both in written form and on the videos was so warm and special, I felt like a personal friend, “sister”. I truly loved this study and plan to revisit it. Thank you, Jennifer!

This is a Must Do Bible Study!! I lead a group of women in my church through Jennifer Rothschild study Psalm23. I’ve always viewed this Psalm as a “death” psalm to comfort other. In reality we learned Sister, it is a Psalm to LIVE by!! We took a look at us as vulnerable sheep and that’s ok!! Girls, when the Lord is our Shepherd we will not be in lack!! What a joy to understand Psalm 23. We were given fresh eyes on what Shepherds do with oil and not stopping in valley’s!! But not only the study itself, what wonderful resources are provided to boost your study. It’s not just a fill in the blank, this is come, taste and see the Lord is good dig deeper kinda study to grow in. There is even a song play list for meditation time!!! Indeed the Lord is my Shepherd and praise His name I’m His little sheep!!

This was the Best bible study I did. So often we here this at memorials/funerals we recite this verse and don’t understand the true meaning, this will help you understand the true meaning of Psalm 23!! You will learn just one chapter a week. I did a online bible study through P31 and it went through a Facebook group. We had videos to watch along with it. If you have the money or can go in with a group of friends to get the study guide and video series do it! It will be so worth it!
