May these words of my mouth, and this meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and Redeemer. – Psalm 19:14
The Lord announces the word, and the women who proclaim it are a mighty throng. – Psalm 68:11
One of my favorite things in the whole world is to study Scripture. I love to dig in deep, follow word studies, and lay passages side by side to understand them together. I relish the experience and discipline of sitting with the Spirit to hear his words speak to my own life. As a child, my parents instilled in me a love for the Word of God, and today this love is one of my greatest joys.
Out of these studies I like to write. My Scriptural writing takes two approaches: Expository (learning and teaching my way slowly through single passages, musing over a few verses at a time) and Devotional (Scriptures and spiritual insights woven into ordinary stories and heart mediations).
These writings are real and open to discussion; I write with an eye toward community and a desire to grow. Some posts dig into the Word of God with intensity, and other posts are simply invitations to pause and meditate. To be still and know He is God. I hope to grow in the presenting these words to you, and I hope to pull the curtain back on grace and inspire growth in your own heart Jesus makes himself known.
My primary newsletter, Community Notes, includes this type of writing.
