Hey Ya’ll. I’m Beth
I’m the wife of one good looking pastor and Mama to five (bio + adopted) children. (This was not the plan, friends.) We live in a fixer-upper house that may never get fixed up in small town Alabama.
It’s only fair to let you know from the beginning that my spiritual gift is making people cry. I’m terrible at paperwork. And, I have hopeless coffee problem.
These days I spend much of my time writing, speaking, teaching, checking homework, picking up legos, and washing clothes. It’s a wonderful life!
Why I started teaching the Bible.
I vividly remember the first time God’s Word spoke to me in a powerful and personal way. I was 12 years old and headed home from my first Youth Camp experience. As we rambled down the road in the old church bus, I pulled out my Bible and read. (This was before the days of cell phones, young readers.) As my heart took in the verses I thought to myself, “These are the most true, important, and life-changing words in the universe. Everyone needs to hear them!” That was the beginning of a love for Scripture that only gets hotter as the years go by. It absolutely thrills me and I’m ruined for anything short of helping others understand and love it too.
Four years later, I sensed that God was calling me to ministry. At the time I had no idea what it would look like, but l I knew for sure was that I wouldn’t be satisfied doing anything other than teaching God’s Word and leading others to know Him deeply through it.
Looking back over the last twenty something years, I see a common thread: I am never more alive than when I’m teaching the Bible. What began as a calling to the unknown, is now manifested in a teaching, writing and speaking ministry that brings me more fun than I deserve!
I hope you’ll poke around my site, and as you do I pray God uses something you find here to deepen your walk with him.
So much love and affection,
