I agree, she is amazing. I think that I want to be like all 3 of them (Priscilla, Beth & Kay) when I grow up. For so many reasons. As far as the Bible study author that has had the most impact on me, probably Beth Moore. Each of her studies have touched me in a different way! Jenn Hatmaker really reached me this summer as far as teaching me how to effectively study the Bible. And as far as a teacher that I actually know and watch live out their life on a day to day basis, I'd have to say YOU. I've seen you in many different life situations and have been greatly impacted watching you put your faith in action and continue to grow deeper.
Ah, thanks for your sweet words, Heather! I greatly appreciate the encouragement, especially knowing you've seen some of the last darker years of my life :o) And, I definitely agree with you on the other teachers you mentioned. Beth's studies always get personal, don't they? And Jen's Modern Girls Guide to Bible Study is a God-send to those who run from Bible study because they think it's too hard, boring, irrelevant, or time-consuming. She really makes it accessible and personally relatable. I love how God uses different women in different ways to teach us!
Oh my goodness, Kay Arthur one of my favorite Bible teachers too. I've taken many of her Precept classes, some of them a couple of times. She is truly a visionary and one of the Lord's most effective teachers. Elisabeth Elliot is another one of my heroes too! Passion and Purity is a must-read for all teenage girls. Wow!
I agree with Heather… Katie D. mentioned at Cuppies the other night that you were mentoring her and I said enthusiatically "Me too! Me too!" What lucky girls we are. Now, if you ever get even near Kay Arthur's pace of public appearances and tours and scheduling, I'd like to bid now on the role of personal assistant. What FUN we'd have! 🙂
