Online Study Groups
An After the Boxes Are Unpacked study group gets the conversation going about emotional realities, practical ideas, and paths to spiritual growth as you begin a new stage of life in a new town. Going through the study with others who understand what you’re going through can become a lifeline.
If you have a heart for women uprooted by a move and starting over in a new place, you can have a meaningful and rewarding ministry as a facilitator of an online After the Boxes Are Unpacked study group. Your support team at Just Moved Ministry offers all the help, resources, and encouragement you need.
Interested in ATTENDING an online study group?
- Debbie and JoAnn, your Just Moved Ministry support team, are currently creating small groups (4-5 members, plus a facilitator) made up of women who have contacted us with a desire to participate.
- We recommend that each member of an online study group has a copy of After the Boxes Are Unpacked (2016 edition) by Susan Miller and, to experience the greatest benefit from the study, the companion Newcomer Study Guide.

Read what they’re saying about our online study groups
“Thank you for your prayers [and] for the online After the Boxes Are Unpacked group, as we have formed beautiful and encouraging friendships and can’t wait to hopefully meet in person one day.” – Hope, online study member
“I think what surprised me the most in my first session was just how quickly the ladies clicked! I was concerned that it would feel sterile without much of a “human touch.” I couldn’t have been more wrong! There really weren’t any awkward pauses. Everyone was very eager to read the text and begin friendships with one another. We weren’t talking over each other, everyone seemed comfortable, and everyone seemed to gain encouragement. I absolutely had the best group anyone can imagine. We all cried during our last session. I think the friendships were really timely in their lives and provided a lot of encouragement. Kudos to Just Moved leadership for keeping the groups small. We are starting a prayer rotation so they can build relationships between meetings.” Traci, Facilitator
“We had our last online class with Traci today. Traci started tearing up and then I did too. She was able to pull herself together, but I struggled. So glad I did not have to talk at the end. Thank you for orchestrating all those details so we could meet. [I’m] working towards being able to go to France next year to the French Open and meeting Amy, [our study group member who lives in France]. Thanks so much!” Heather, online study member
“[Our online study] was very comfortable, they were chatting between themselves when I left the zoom but I left it opened for them. They were setting up a time to talk the next day. It was very warm and interactive. I am sad as I only have 2 weeks left with these ladies and it has been awesome! We have bonded so well. We have decided to meet every other week and just chat for a few minutes after the class is over.” Vicky, Facilitator
