The best way to become an avid student of the Bible is to have your world fall apart.
I'm not kidding! Struggle with relationships! Have your family break up. Go broke. Get your feelings hurt really really bad. Say the wrong thing at the wrong time to the wrong person.
Nothing sends us God's way faster than out of control pain.
It is through the struggles that are just part of life, that I dove deeper and deeper into God's Word. I knew He was there, but was He ready to interact with me?! A little bitty ol' half-military brat, half-country girl, out of step with the rest of the world, opinionated, stubborn and sometimes cranky, middle-aged, mostly African-American, and defiantly Christian me!
What I learn, I tell. So Off-Kilter Bible Studies is my attempt to guide other seekers through the Bible: both the simple and the weird.
I don't have all the answers. But I sure seem to have all the questions.
Don't believe blindly. Think! Love God not just with your heart, but with your mind.
Does the Bible really say what you always thought it did? I bet it doesn't.
Move past the traditional. Dive off the cliff.
