      I really want to but since I’m new to my faith I have no idea where to begin or where to even find groups that suit me.

      Find a church to join and ask about their study groups. I prefer the ones that are pastor led because pastors at my churches know Hebrew, Greek and history really well to help decipher what the texts say.

      The world is full of people with good advice about how you should live your life. In my experience the only way you will really learn what God wants for your life is to learn to listen to Him, not necessarily the people who profess loudly to know what God wants.

      She asked for advice in her OP. Was I wrong to direct her to a good bible study since it's God's word that grows us?

      Well that depends on your view of church bible study groups really. Let's remember she has been burned before.

      If you know what you want in a church or bible study you could research some online, also visit any that are ongoing and see how you fit in and if you like the study. If you are more of a by yourself type then there are some online as well.

      The two of you have helped quite a bit with deciding what I should do and the steps I could take. It’s always nice to have options open!

      Dia, you may have realised by now that this place has a very mixed bunch of folks here. The great thing, in my view is that even though we may not always agree, we manage to accept that we all care and want to offer honest views.

      The task for you is to decide what speaks to you and what God is calling you to listen to.

      Welcome and I look forward to hearing more of your story.
