Let the challenge commence!

Ever since the Bible came to life for me at Bible school, I've wondered how I ever survived the years I spent reading the Bible like a dull, dusty history book, full of names I didn't care about and stories I didn't understand. Where did I go for comfort when God's Word was like a stranger to me? Where did I go for certainty when His character was a mystery to me? In this week's readings, we will begin to see the gradual unveiling of God's character through every divinely inspired word in these books.

In this week alone, you will be amazed by God's creativity. His sovereignty. His desire for relationship and community with His creation. His holiness. His grace. His justice. His incomprehensible being, His absolute faithfulness to His Word, His power to make His will come to pass. His delight in walking with us.

And this list barely scratches the surface, for the story goes on.

Are you ready to discover it?

Hallie grew up on a small farm in rural eastern Washington. At 18, she moved across the country to go to Bible school, and then married the Boy Next Door at 20. Now 22, she is a graduate of Great Commission Bible Institute with a Certificate in Biblical Studies and resides in Olympia with her husband and her two cats. She survives the claustrophobia of living near the city by making frequent trips back home to visit her family and her horse, writing sentimental blog posts about the countryside, and by filling her house with photographs of Mt. Adams sunsets.
