About Just Take A Step: A Devotional Bible Study for the Busy and Overwhelmed by Kathy Widenhouse
Busy? Overwhelmed? Just Take a Step.
On the surface, walking with God seems so simple: read the Bible, listen to God, talk to Him, and do what He says.
But it’s easy to get busy, distracted, and overwhelmed. You beat yourself up and then focus on what you don’t do.
Just Take A Step points out what you can do. Each of the eight chapters of this devotional Bible study walk you through Lydia’s story in Acts 16 like this:
• A Step into the Word: the scripture basis for the chapter
• A Step into Understanding: a short narrative that explains the kind of step Lydia took
• A Step of Truth: a summary of that step
• A Step Deeper: additional questions for Bible study and discussion
• A Step of Prayer: a prayer you can personalize
• My Next Step: a place to note the next step God prompts you to take
Lydia’s steps added up and led to a great movement of God. Your steps can, too.
You can use Just Take a Step individually or with a group. It’s a Bible study guide you’ll return to over and over to cut through distraction and overwhelm to just take a step to walk with God … and see how He moves in your life.

Kathy Widenhouse is a content writer who specializes in writing for faith-based organizations and the nonprofit market.
She was always been a reader, but began writing in earnest in 1996 when planning for a second career after serving in the military. (Kathy spent 20 years as a flutist with “The President’s Own” U.S. Marine Band in Washington, D.C., before turning to writing full-time.) A letter in her mailbox invited her to take an online article-writing course. Soon she was earning periodical bylines and book contracts. When Kathy turned to content and copywriting, her years of volunteer work and time on four nonprofit boards drew her to the nonprofit niche.
As she began partnering with small to mid-sized organizations as a development writer and a freelance Christian writer, Kathy discovered that many of them struggle in the communications arena – most often because staff members wear too many hats. She learned that by providing good information and reliable service for these committed professionals, they are able to develop effective communications, build their donor base, and grow.
Along the way, 100+ articles with Kathy’s byline have appeared in more than 40 periodicals, both print and online, and her 7 books now number more than 100,000 in print. Today, she invests time as an online information publisher and in helping nonprofits, entrepreneurs, and ministries have great writing for their organizations.
She and her husband Brett have two terrific grown children and a wonderful son-in-law. They live in Lake Wylie, SC (outside of Charlotte, NC) with Brio, their golden retriever.
And … she is still a reader.
