Leading "Free of Me" Featuring Sharon Hodde Miller

"Free of Me" Bible Study Featuring Sharon Hodde Miller

In this 5-part series, Sharon Hodde Miller invites us into a bigger, Jesus-centered vision—one that restores our freedom and inspires us to live for more. Based on her book Free of Me, this study unveils our deepest insecurities and equips us to focus on God and others instead of ourselves. Discover a purpose bigger than “project me” and experience freedom from the burden of self-focus.  

Dr. Sharon Hodde Miller is a speaker and the author of Free of Me. She blogs at SheWorships.com and has been a regular contributor to Propel, She Reads Truth, and Her.meneutics. She’s also written for Relevant, Christianity Today, and (in)courage. She speaks regularly on topics ranging from leadership to body image to Scripture. She has a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. She and her husband, Ike, have three children and live in the Raleigh Durham area.  

The reality is life is better when it's not about you. The cure to self-focus isn't a self-improvement plan or a great book. It's focusing on God wholeheartedly. Your task as the leader of your group is to point people to God.

Listen to Sharon's encouragement to you as you lead this series.  

Sharon talked about how difficult it is to admit to the sin of self-focus. Some people might readily realize it's a problem. But for others, it might not be as obvious to them. Sharon encouraged us to lead in vulnerability to help people feel the freedom to talk about self-focus.

In what ways have you seen the sin of self-focus in your life? What could it look like to talk about it with your group?

 There's freedom in focusing our entire lives on God. We can turn our gaze to him and off of ourselves. Pray for your group as you start going through this series. Ask God to work in and through you and the people in your group so that each of you find freedom from self-focus.
