Are you passionate & nerdy about the Bible? Yep, me too.
If you get excited about Bible commentary, dictionaries, cross references, and highlighters that don’t bleed through thin pages, you might be a Bible nerd.
If you use more than one physical Bible during your quiet time, have multiple Bible study journals, or take notes during the sermon, you might be a Bible nerd.
If you have more questions than answers (which makes you even more excited to keep reading), you love the feeling of starting a new study, or if you listen to theology podcasts while grocery shopping, you might be a Bible nerd and you might wanna join CLUB 119.
CLUB 119 is the community you’ve been looking for if you want to dig deep in the Word of God with other women who are just as nerdy about the Bible as you are.
Come and take a look inside our new space in the LIVE WELL | STAY FOCUSED Collective!
Do you need motivation and accountability to stay in your Bible consistently?
Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by Bible study but also guilty for not engaging with it more?
I promise you that you’re not the only one. Everyone struggles with consistency from time to time. That’s why community is so beautiful and important. We get to sit at the table with other women who share the same passion for God’s Word as well as the struggles that life brings.
hi, i’m elyssa!
I’m a Jesus follower & a Bible nerd
My mission for CLUB 119 is to inspire and equip women to dig deep into their Bible and fall ever more in love with the God who inspired it. If you love Jesus and are nerdy about the Bible too, CLUB 119 is for you!

Weekly Live Bible Study with Me!
On Monday nights at 7PM CT, grab your Bible(s), favorite study supplies, and something yummy to sip and let’s dig into the scriptures together!
We’ll spend 8-12 weeks per book (alternating between OT & NT) and I’ll share my process, notes, and what I’m learning along the way. Feel free to chat with me and other community members as we learn together!
Can’t join live? No problem! Replays will be available to watch at any time 🙂
Monthly Hangout Sesh
At the end of every month, we’ll get together on Zoom to talk about what we’ve been learning, what challenges we’ve encountered, and how God has been moving in each of our lives.
Every month you can expect a refreshing time of sharing, prayer, and inspiration… think of it as the small group you didn’t know you needed!
Again, if you can’t join live, that’s okay! Replays will be available just for you 🙂

What’s the 119 Bible Study Method?
This is my secret sauce method of creating a Bible study system that works just for you!
Listen, everyone engages with the Bible differently, but we all can benefit from having a system that eliminates the overwhelm and keeps us focused & motivated to stay in the Bible on a consistent basis. Each of the 3 tools in the system work together to make for easy organization & reference. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1. The Bible
Create your own study Bible using an interleaved Bible, journaling Bible, or wide-margin Bible. Highlight & take intentional notes that will stay relevant throughout the years.
2. The Notes
*You can use the CLUB 119 Bible Study Notebook for this.
Write in-depth notes* using the inductive study method, verse mapping, and word, character & topical studies. Practicing good observation, interpretation & application of the text helps us understand the Bible the way the authors intended us too.
3. The Database
*Notion is a free software you can use on your computer & mobile device.
Curate notes, articles, and any other favorite study helps using a robust Notion* database. This will serve as your personal reference library that you can build and refer to for years to come!
As you take notes, highlight, and curate resources, you can use categories and topics to index your work across the three tools of your system.
If you’re tired of losing information to random journals, backs of church bulletins, and well-intentioned Pinterest boards, this method might just be exactly what you need!
The cherry on top is that you can absolutely incorporate any other Bible study journal, workbook, or method into your personalized system! It’s been a blessing for me – I know it will be for you too!
Got questions? I gotchu!
What if I already have a Bible study system that I love using? Is CLUB 119 still worth joining?
Woot! Woot! I’m so glad you have a system that’s working for you! Yes, CLUB 119 is still totally worth joining for –
- the weekly live Bible studies
- monthly hangout sessions
- private Telegram group
- monthly downloadable resources
I’m not great with technology or new software. Do I have to use Notion?
I completely understand! If you’re interested in learning Notion, I’ve got you covered with resources that will teach you everything you need to know. If you’re not interested, you can just stick with your Bible(s) and notebook or journal!
Do I need any special supplies?
Not necessarily. Bible study really only requires 4 basic things: a Bible, something to write on, something to write with, and the internet (for research). However, if you’re a Bible nerd, I assume you probably have extras like creative journaling supplies, maybe a concordance, a Bible dictionary or some commentary. These kinds of extras will be useful. I will always recommend what I’m using but most tools are optional.
Do I have to join the LIVE WELL | STAY FOCUSED COLLECTIVE TO BE IN CLUB 119?
Yes. CLUB 119 is one of the groups or spaces in the Collective. But I assure you, you’ll be glad to be part of this awesome community! Think of it like a Facebook group on steroids (without having to belong to FB or any other social media platform!). The LIVE WELL | STAY FOCUSED Collective is all about pursuing 6 areas of intentional living – I call them the LIVE WELL 6. They are –
- Live Well Faithfully
- Live Well Physically
- Live Well Socially
- Live Well Environmentally
- Live Well Vocationally
- Live Well Avocationally
Each of the Live Well 6 has a FREE space in the Collective where we can dive deep into each of these areas. Currently, the other two spaces in the Collective are the LWSF Book Club & CLUB 119.
This community is all about living well & staying focused on what matters most so that you can step into the calling God has on your life. All of these spaces are part of the Collective because I believe lifestyle should be healthy & holistic. Bible study should impact how we live in every area of life so I will be intentional about directing application to these areas of life.
Can I cancel my membership at anytime?
While I would absolutely hate for you to leave, I understand. Yes, you can quit CLUB 119 membership at anytime.
CLUB 119 is for you if:
You crave community with women who are just as nerdy and passionate about the Bible as you are.
You need motivation and accountability to stay in your Bible consistently.
You want to share and receive ideas for Bible study, note-taking, journaling, and all the other fun Bible stuff you love!
You’ve always wanted to develop a Bible study system but never quite figured out the best style for you.
Bible study sometimes overwhelms you and you feel guilty for not engaging with the Word more.
You love using technology to keep in touch with sisters in Christ you’d never otherwise interact with!
Ready to join the club?
The first Monday Night Live for our next Bible study is on November 8. Don’t miss the live sessions!
I cannot wait to see you in the new CLUB 119, gathered at the feet of Jesus and learning from His word together!
See you on the inside!
