I'd love to have you share on Facebook and Pinterest. You can use the small gray icon below each Bible study for this purpose.


Hi! I'm Gail--a wife to my best friend since 1970, a mother since 1973 and a grandmother 2003.

Born in Colorado but raised all over the U.S., I've been an Army wife (22 years) and a missionary to Budapest,  Hungary (5 years). But the title I'm most proud to have is "follower-of-Jesus" (40+ years).
I started Bite Size Bible Study as a supplement to Bible Love Notes, my site that features 1-Minute devotions every weekday.
Bite Size studies are designed for busy people who don't want to "bite off more than they can chew" but still want to do a quick Bible study each week.

The full text of all Scripture verses are included and there are usually no more than 3 questions. The studies are designed to do quickly in perhaps 5 minutes or less. But they also lend themselves to further study and journaling if you have the time. 

I have a Masters Degree from Columbia Biblical Seminary, but most of what I've learned about the Bible has been "on the job training" during my 60+ years of life. I've always loved studying the Bible, and I started writing Bible studies for my personal use over 25 years ago. 

I need to be challenged, encouraged, corrected and comforted by God's Word, so I study it and write what God is teaching me. 
I hope you'll enjoy these Bible studies. Subscribe and have them sent to your email box and/or download them,* if you'd like. I pray they will draw you into a deeper understanding of God and His Word.

* You have my permission to download these studies for non-published, non-profit purposes retaining the copyright info at the bottom of each. Thanks!

    1. Thank you, Melissa, for taking the time to encourage me! I'm always blessed to know that the things I write are encouraging other Christians. And I lift you in prayer as I write this - that you will continue to feel God's purpose, strength, comfort and peace in your life. God bless you.

They both encourage my heart so much and it actually leaps with joy when I see the bible love notes in my inbox! For a busy momma it helps me to refer to during the day as I can, not only in my quiet time. Not to mention I totally admire your short, concise, powerful way of writing... I wish I could ... I'm not so good at well -short ! Ha! Anyways thank you for the blessing that you are :)
