The Breathe Study Journal includes 5 sessions of teaching by Priscilla Shirer with 4 weeks of homework in a reflective, journaling format. One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to stop and cease from all the activities and busyness and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that would transform the Israelites' mindset. He didn't just want them legally free; He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Priscilla Shirer is a wife and a mother first. But put a Bible in her hand and a message in her heart and you'll see why thousands flock to her conferences and dive into her Bible study series each year.
Priscilla Evans was born 31 December 1974 in Dallas, Texas, the daughter of Dr Tony Evans, senior pastor of the thriving 9,500-member Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship. A graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, Priscilla holds a Master's degree in Biblical Studies and loves nothing more than to serve her sisters in Christ through the teaching of God's Word. She considers it a privilege to serve believers from every denomination and culture by helping them to know the truths of Scripture intellectually and by encouraging them to experience these truths practically by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Priscilla's ministry work began while she was still a college freshman. Her spots on Christian radio proved to be popular, and she was invited to lead the weekly Bible study at Zig Ziglar's corporation. In 1999, Priscilla married executive Jerry Shirer, and together they founded Going Beyond Ministries. In addition to Priscilla's participation in many church and para-church conferences across the globe each year, Going Beyond Ministries hosts AWAKEN - an outreach event in their hometown designed to encourage and mobilise women locally. This free gathering brings together thousands of women from different denominations and backgrounds several times a year for an opportunity to not only hear the Word but to live it out in practical ways.
The ministry also equips believers with Bible study resources by partnering with LifeWay Christian resources. Priscilla has authored many video-based studies on biblical characters and topics including Jonah, Gideon, the Exodus, discerning God's voice and the Armor of God.
Priscilla has published numerous books including Discerning the Voice of God, God is Able, the New York Times Bestseller The Resolution for Women, and Fervent: A Woman's Battle Plan for Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer. In 2015, she made her debut as a screen actress, starring in the role of Elizabeth Jordan in the hit faith-based film War Room.
Between studying and writing, Priscilla spends most of her time cleaning up after (and trying to satisfy the appetites of) her and Jerry's three growing sons - Jackson, Jerry Jr., and Jude. They make their home in Dallas.
