Hi, I’m Ellen and my personal story actually began a little differently. I grew up around a few Bible stories for kids and thought I knew way more than I actually did... until I got to Bible college and found out how little I really knew. In one of my first classes, we were given a test that was meant to help the faculty gauge our entry-level Bible knowledge. I had read through the Bible once before, so I thought I’d be well equipped for this test. It turned out I didn’t even understand some of the questions. I kept thinking, “I cannot even remember reading about this.” and, “What does this word even mean?”

All that was about to change. I began to understand the Bible’s one storyline in my Old Testament and New Testament survey classes, learned solid Bible study methods, and watched my professors lay out Scripture in a way that was meaningful and personal. Soon, I was studying books of the Bible in depth on my own and seeing my findings mirrored in commentaries and class study notes. I call that my “Scripture confidence moment”. It was so empowering that I immediately wanted to share this newfound treasure with the rest of the world. 

 

You may not have the time and money to go to Bible school but I’m going to offer you a way to get that same foundation in just one year right from the comfort of your living room couch. 

Check out my signature program, Scripture Confident through the Bible, a one-year, self-paced Bible study intensive that will transform your comfort level with the Word of God.
