how to dig deeper in your personal Bible study

I remember my first day of class at Bible school like it was yesterday—because it was the day I discovered that I could actually study the Bible for myself.

My experience with the Bible up to that point had been frustrating. I knew this Book was supposed to be the most important one I could ever read—and yet when I opened it up, I struggled to mine for its treasures in any effective way. I felt doomed to forever depend on the words of pastors and teachers to help me make sense of God’s.

If you have ever been in that place with me, or if you just sense that your personal Bible study could be deeper, I have some life-changing news: you can study the Bible for yourself. And you don’t have to go to seminary or learn Hebrew to do it!

You can begin with just a few practical steps that will shift your perspective and prepare your heart to dig deep into the riches of the Word.

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.
