Through Open Doors: Unlocking the

Mystery of Soul Winning

God’s command to go out and seek the lost still stands. God still wants to save souls. And His Word is still powerful to do so! Therefore, I’ve come to understand over the years of learning to share the gospel, that all I need in order to be an effective witness for Jesus is simply…Faith…and a Plan!

Since you are reading this, you likely already understand the “why” of soul winning. But maybe, like I had to, you are looking for a little help with the “how”.

I’m praying for you, dear friend, that God will use the lessons He has taught me over the past twenty-five years to encourage and equip you for the greatest, most rewarding labor of love there is on the planet…seeking the lost to bring them to Christ!

This study is a little different from the other studies we’ve done so far. Because this study is adapted to go along with a book the Lord used me to write, Through Open Doors: Unlocking the Mystery of Soul Winning.

And I’m so excited to finally share it with you here! I know the Lord wants to use it to encourage you and many others to go forth with confident faith in Him to work through you.

But faith also needs a plan of action. So, this study will also equip you to be an effective soul winner by giving you my complete soul winning conversation!…and lessons learned over 25 years of soul winning efforts. And then teaching you how to…

  • create your own personalized plan for sharing the gospel
  • begin the conversation with anyone
  • make the conversation flow from point to point
  • write out and share your personal salvation testimony
  • simply explain eternal security, assurance of salvation, baptism
  • And so much more!

This online Bible Study divides the book – Through Open Doors – into 5 weeks of reading assignments. You will average 4 chapters a week. This 140-page book is written in such a way that it can be simply read straight through as any other book.

But just as with any endeavor, we get out of it what we are willing to put into it. So, with that in mind, I’ve included in each chapter scripture to be read and question(s) to answer, along with a short assignment for application of the information presented.

Thanks to the generous donations of our supporters, this study is available here for free to anyone who wishes to know more about how to win souls to Christ. So, don’t forget to invite your friends to join us! It’s always more fun to study the Bible with friends.

This book is a step-by-step guide that will help you gain confidence by teaching you precisely what to say and which bible verses to use when sharing the gospel. The author takes the mystery out of evangelizing by breaking it down into easy-to-remember steps.

I loved the author’s encouraging personal testimonies, inspiring me to step out of my comfort zone to lead others to Christ.

What I loved about the book is how her approach and methods are Scripture-driven, saturated in prayer, Holy Spirit dependent, and ultimately leaves the results in God’s hands.

If you’re looking for a ground-up approach to feeling comfortable sharing your faith with people, especially strangers, start here. Her personal stories, insights, and testimonies will give you the confidence you need, as well as, a fresh burden for those dying outside of Christ to face the judgment to come.

Hi! I’m so glad you’re here, because I am passionate about helping others to know the joy…and freedom!…of surrender to God’s perfect way through the study of God’s Word. The Lord has used me to write eleven free online Bible studies so far, and I hope to write many more.

When I’m not writing, you can often find me going on “adventures” and enjoying life in central Alabama with my hilarious, handsome husband and our two precious daughters. I’m an avid fan of chocolate, diet Dr. Pepper, sappy Hallmark movies, and my sweet family.
