Can God really heal your wounded heart?
Even if He can, won’t you always bear scars?
Whether your heart was broken by someone thoughtless or someone cruel, someone from your past or someone in the next room, someone who left or someone you lost, God can heal your hurting heart. And even if your pain wasn’t inflicted by a person at all, but you were the victim of cruel circumstances, your heart can be healed.
The Genesis account of Joseph – loved and favored by his father, but despised and rejected by his jealous brothers – shows us how to keep a soft and teachable heart during our most difficult days. If you’ll walk with Joseph from the pit to the prison to the palace, you will gain perspective and practical tools for healing in this seven-week, verse-by-verse Bible study. Appropriate for individual or group use, this study features an optional “zero week” to help you develop a foundational understanding of Joseph and his unique family if you are not familiar with their stories.
Join Kay as she delves beyond the facts and faces of Joseph’s story and dwells more on this amazing man’s heart. You’ll find hope and healing for yesterday’s hurts and tomorrow’s trials.
Interactive Bible Study Workbook
The Bible study workbook includes 7 weeks of daily lessons (5 lessons per week) covering the story of Joseph verse by verse through Genesis 37-50. Kay has also provided an optional Zero Week which provides you with a quick refresher course on Joseph’s unique and troubled family. Each week of lessons concludes with eight discussion questions which are appropriate for individual reflection or group discussion.
The workbook provides you with a comprehensive study on its own, but you may wish to purchase the optional DVDs to enhance your study. Email Kay to inquire about group order prices.
Joseph 10-card Scripture Meditation & Memorization Pack
This beautifully printed set of ten scripture cards was packaged with the wounded heart in mind. In an effort to provide you meaningful resources that help God’s Word to transform your life and renew your mind, we’ve carefully selected ten scriptures that will bring hope, healing and restoration to the broken heart…in time. These 4×6 cards fit perfectly in a 4×6 photo album for memorizing and meditation. But they also serve other purposes. The entire package would make a tender gift for someone who is grieving a loss, navigating a divorce, reeling from a drastic life change or recuperating from an injury. Or you could slip individual scripture cards into greeting cards for loved ones who need a little real encouragement and hope.
Selected scriptures (which are highlighted in the Joseph Bible study) are:
- Genesis 50:20
- Psalm 27:13-14
- Psalm 147:3,5
- Lamentations 3:21-24
- Zephaniah 3:17
- Romans 8:28
- Romans 15:13
- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
- Philippians 4:8

Joseph – Keeping a Soft Heart in a Hard Place DVD Set
For the first time, Kay is pleased to offer teaching DVDs that complement this Bible study. Each of the eight sessions in the set are approximately 25 minutes in length and they provide additional teaching beyond what is covered in the workbook. So, while you will find the videos to be helpful and enjoyable, they are not necessary for completing the book. If you enjoy hearing the author’s heart and voice, however, you will certainly want to include these teaching videos in your study.
|$60 $40 for the set of 8 sessions|
The average length of the sessions is 26 minutes. The first session should be watched after completing the optional zero week or before endeavoring week one of the study. So each session should be played before the week of homework with the same number. For example, Session 4 should be watched before beginning Week 4 of the study. Finally, Session 8 of the video set is a wrap-up and should be played after completing Week 7 and discussing that week’s homework (if the study is being done in a group setting).<
Thanks to a generous underwriter, I am now able to offer the Joseph DVD set for just $40!! I am so grateful!
A Special Gift for the Hurting Heart
Tear Bottle with Scripture
This little bottle is nothing magical or sacred. It is simply a sweet gift to remind the brokenhearted that God cares when they hurt. A dainty tag bears the words of Psalm 56:8 – “You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?” The tag is attached to a clear or blue tinted glass bottle with tiny, tasteful jewels and/or charms and a sweet ribbon. This little bottle, which comes in a variety of styles, could be a meaningful gift for a friend or family member who is grieving a loss, navigating a change, recovering from a tragedy or hurting over a broken relationship. You could give it alone or coupled with a Joseph Bible study and/or scripture memory cards.
When you place your order, please describe the bottle you’d prefer from the photos below. However, depending on inventory you may receive one that is slightly different. Kay will communicate with you by email before fulfilling your order once you have placed it. All of the bottles are lovely and tastefully created with prayers for the one who will receive it.
