Before Precept, my idea of Bible study was to just read the Scripture so I could check it off my “To Do” list. Many times I would wait for the pastor to preach on the passage or my Sunday school teachers to explain. I would often consult commentaries. I wanted desperately to understand the Bible, but didn’t know how to go about it.
In 1998, I went back to college as a “nontraditional student” (mother of 4 and a homeschooler) and enrolled in a Bible study methods class. The required textbook was the International Inductive Study Bible. I began searching for churches where Precept Bible studies were taught.
I could not get enough of the Precept classes and took every one that was offered by the church. Two years later God called me to lead. I've been teaching ever since, have attended many workshops. I love sharing the Inductive Study Method and God’s Word wherever He puts me! The blessings of seeing students see the Word come alive and accurately handling God’s Word are endless.
Had it not been for the participating and leading Precept, I would not have been equipped to endure the trials that come with being a servant of Jesus Christ. God has truly blessed me, never forsaken me and has given me the peace that passes all understanding. I have learned to rest in His love.
Precept, through the power of Jesus Christ, has caused my priorities, goals, and walk with the Lord to change. I look forward with great anticipation to what He has in store for the future.
