Tell us a little about yourself. I was raised being taught the importance of God's Word. I have been married for over 30 years and raised three children with my husband. From a child I learned many Bible stories, but it wasn't until my late teenage years that I began to understand how they all fit together. I have written literature and directed VBS for my home church several times, I've led seminars in women's conferences, and taught Sunday School for many years. I currently live in Oklahoma.
What was your motivation behind this project? According to most statistics, young people are growing up and leaving the church and faith in God by the droves. The main reason can be found in the lack of knowledge and understanding of what one believes about God and why. There is a mighty gulf between the level of spiritual training in children, youth and even adults and the level one needs to live in today's world. All, especially children, are capable of learning so much more. The Biblical Path of Life is a study meant to simplify the understanding making the Bible relevant to a Christian's life - young or old.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? God's Word is the most important thing we can know and teach. In order to understand how to live a Christian life pleasing to God, we must first know what His Word says. This study is meant to help anyone understand how simply yet intricately the Bible is put together. When we understand how the Bible fits together, we can understand it much easier. The Biblical Path of Life is a simple, historical, chronological journey through the Bible. Because it compares Scripture to Scripture, it reveals Jesus in the Old and New Testaments.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I saw the need for a Bible Study that was more than a compilation of stories, but a simple study revealing that each of these events all fit together as part of a bigger picture - much like pieces of a puzzle. Not only do the stories interlock, but they have a purpose: to reveal Jesus and why He came. Although it began as a study for children, it quickly became a viable study for adults as well. This study was incorporated in my local church as a Bible Study program for Sunday School. It began as a children's Bible Study but soon the adults requested the study in their classes. It not only provided the opportunity for them to know what their children were learning but they could discuss the same Bible lesson that they had learned in their individual classes. Most were encouraged by the understanding of the history. Some marveled at the Lord who fulfills His Word with complete precision and who knows our future and works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are the called to His purpose. Because of the encouragement of many who have been through this Bible study more than once, I wanted to make it available to any who could use this Bible study to understand the simplicity of the Gospel message.
