In this 5-part series, author and Bible teacher Jen Pollock Michel takes us on a journey through Scripture to uncover the meaning of home. We’ll discover our holy yearning for a place to belong, how God provides that place for us, and how we can model His hospitality in our lives each day.

Jen Pollock Michel is a speaker and the author of Keeping Place and Teach Us to Want, Christianity Today's 2015 Book of the Year. Jen also writes regularly for Today in the Word, a devotional published by The Moody Bible Institute, and is a regular contributor for Christianity Today's popular Her.meneutics blog. Jen lives in Toronto with her husband and five children.

Watch this trailer for an overview of the series.



God is a homemaker. He created the earth for us to live in and He’s preparing a place for us to spend eternity with Him. Jesus came, died, and rose again so we could become part of His family—a family with the inheritance of eternity.

Listen to Jen's encouragement for you as you lead this series. 



Jen gave three points of advice for those leading Keeping Place:
  • Let women tell their stories of home.
  • Dive deeper into Scripture.
  • Come up with ways to "keep place" in your lives.

Everyone longs for a better home. We know that someday God will bring our longings to fruition. In the meantime, we follow Him, love others, and live well. As you lead this study, keep eternity at the forefront of your mind. Learn to tap into the hope that Jesus will return and model that hope to your group.
