JOYFUL WALK BIBLE STUDIES are free grace-based Bible studies for women of all ages. FREE to download and copy for those not using it for commercial purposes (see our Copyright Policy). Why free? God desires that we get biblical materials into women’s hands as inexpensively as possible so more women can have the opportunity to get into God’s word.

Each study guide follows the inductive method of Bible study (observation, interpretation, application) in a warm and inviting format. So, grab a cup of coffee, your Bible, and some friends as you explore God’s word together with your Joyful Walk Bible Study.
