Becoming a Bible Study Teacher

You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

What an incredible joy it is to witness Biblical truth setting people free!

I was just 21, when for some reason which I couldn’t fathom, two church leaders felt led of God to ask if I would consider leading a Bible Study class for young married women. I had been comfortable serving in the three-year olds, and their request surprised me. I was barely an adult myself and had no idea what would be involved in teaching women. I knew so little, how could I possibly teach anyone else? Three-year olds I could handle, but the thought of teaching adults was downright intimidating.

After prayerfully considering their request, I astonished myself by agreeing to teach the class. I immersed myself in the study of the Scriptures, prayed fervently, and prepared lesson plans. Each week I walked into class with fear and trembling, but God blessed my efforts with His power. Lives were being changed! God had opened a surprise door to a rewarding ministry that could only be a gift of His grace.

If you haven’t guessed, I absolutely love to teach truths from God’s word and nothing thrills me more than seeing lives change when truth penetrates. The years of teaching and writing lesson plans prepared me for yet another surprising ministry when God opened the way for me to write three Bible study books.

Finding Contentment is a study based on the book of Philippians and the Apostle Paul’s remarkable secret of contentment. You will discover true joy does not depend upon circumstances, but on an intimate relationship with the Lord.

Loving Like Jesus is a study that guides you to accept God’s unconditional, all-encompassing love for you. Grasping the depth of His love empowers you to share it with others—even those in your life who make loving a challenge.

Transformed by God’s Word will guide you to allow God’s Spirit, working through His Word to renew your mind, build the attitudes of Christ into your thinking, and transform your life.
