My whole desire and God’s
calling on my life is summed up in II Peter 3:18: to help others “grow
in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.” As
a result, my Christian walk has been characterized by the following:
- A deep love for the Word of God. Since
becoming a Christian in 1980, I fell in love with the Bible and
have consistently spent time reading, memorizing, studying, and
meditating on the Word.
- A hunger to learn more about God. I
am a bookworm of the first order, and read constantly. My mother
was our church librarian, so early on I was devouring books on
every topic in the Christian life – and I’ve never
stopped! I invite you to visit the Resources page
for some of my personal favorites.
- An appreciation for theology. During
college, I was introduced to the study of theology – really
digging into the doctrines of the Christian faith. I firmly believe
that our love for God grows in direct relation to our knowledge
and understanding of God, and theology is essential to that growth.
- A commitment to teach and disciple others. Since
the early 1990s I have been actively engaged in teaching and discipling
adults in the church. The lessons you will find here are the product
of years of study and preparation.
It is because I desire to see others grow in their relationship
with the Lord that I offer you the Christian
Bible studies and
free Bible study lessons available on Sink Your Roots. I hope and
pray that your faith is strengthened and your love for God is deepened
as you sink your roots deep into his Word!
