DIVE DEEPER: Finding Deep Faith Beyond Shallow Religion
Equip yourself to fall deeply in love with God’s Word through this unique, interactive Bible study. Delving into the book of Ephesians, Dive Deeper is a tool for women—those who might be satisfied and content with their Bible study and for those who find themselves fearful or numb—to d.i.v.e.(define, investigate, visualize, embrace) deeper into the living and active Word of God. Dive Deeper comes from Jenifer Jernigan’s heart. As a preacher’s daughter, she grew up with some pretty heavy expectations to live up to. Jenifer found herself becoming numb to the things of God because the Bible stories were all too familiar. She longed to break through the serene surface of her safe place and d.i.v.e. deeper into scripture. She wanted to fall in love with the stories she knew so well. Over time, Jenifer learned to do just that. Her unique Bible study method is shared in this one-of-a-kind study. Dive Deeper takes readers by the hand and jumps with them into the exhilarating waters of Bible study.
• Personal, easy-to-understand language
• Helpful tips for Bible study beginners
• Useful tools to encourage familiarity of the Bible, its contents, and study helps

Our personal life-message is powerful, and often times, capable of changing our mind. But true and lasting change does not come from our mind; it comes from our heart. God’s Word is the only force powerful and loving enough to reach and change our heart. And this truth is exactly why I love this book—it is thick with God’s heart-changing Word. If we are not “diving deeper” with our Creator, we are not truly living! Jenifer’s passion for Scripture is evident as it reaches off the pages of this book and stimulates every sense. May we no longer settle for mediocre living—read this book and be transformed! ~Kasey Van Norman, Bestselling author of Named by God & Raw Faith, Bible Teacher, and Child Rescue Advocate; president of Kasey Van Norman Ministries & Licensed Counselor with Still Creek Ranch Child Rescue.

If you don’t want to run the risk of being overwhelmed and drenched by the waves of God’s grace and faithfulness, then don’t read this book. In Dive Deeper, Jenifer Jernigan beckons us to explore beyond the comfortable and familiar surface to discover the depths of God’s character as revealed in His Word. Plumb the depths of this book of Ephesians and develop the skills to study the Bible for yourself. It’s not for the faint of heart but for those who desire faithful hearts. ~Heather Zempel, Author of Sacred Roads, Community is Messy, and Amazed and Confused, Discipleship Pastor at National Community Church

In a world where many are hungry for God’s truth, Bible studies that don’t just spoon feed are desperately needed.

Whether you are new to the faith, or consider yourself a more “seasoned” believer, this study is for you. Based on the book of Ephesians, this study will challenge you to an ever deepening relationship with Jesus. Jenifer’s unique D.I.V.E. method will teach you new and practical ways to dig deeper into Scripture, and will enable you, perhaps for the first time, to discover the beauty and benefit of God’s word. ~Jimmy Carroll, Lead Pastor, Journey Church, Raleigh, North Carolina
As a pastor of a growing church, I long for people not simply to read the Bible but to know what it means and how to live it out. In Dive Deeper, Jenifer Jernigan awakens her readers to what it truly means to move past simply “getting in the Word” to “getting the Word in them.” The reader not only encounters God through the book of Ephesians but also learns tools to understanding all of Scripture. ~Eric Grenier, Pastor, New Life Baptist Church, Auburndale, Florida
I don’t know where to start. The study of Ephesians has allowed me personally to learn to dive into the Word of God! I will be forever thankful for Jenifer’s leadership in teaching me how to do this. I’ve never understood studying the Word of God could be so easy! Yes, I said easy. I made more out of it than I should have because I just didn’t know how to study my Bible, where to start, or how to begin. I now realize that I can do this for myself. ~Marilyn W.
Jenifer’s study, Dive Deeper, not only gave me the tools I needed but more importantly the confidence I needed to study God’s Word on a whole new level. ~Tracy H.
This study is like a treasure hunt where you get to personally conduct the search for the treasures hidden in God’s Word. Jenifer’s study provides every tool necessary for even the newest Christian to dig deep into the Bible. The study is scalable to suit each individual’s needs. You can do as much or as little as you like and still come away with a deeper understanding of Truth. I have done many Bible studies but Jenifer’s study is a departure because it encourages a pattern of studying the Bible that you can apply on your own. Her authenticity and zealousness for God’s Word complements the depth of the truth she shares, while encouraging each student to “dive deeper.” I personally began a commitment to memorizing Scripture after completing this study, and have found this daily habit incredibly beneficial to my prayer life. I was incredibly challenged by her study, and am eagerly awaiting her next one. ~Stephanie B.
