How to Find DELIGHT in Doctrine


It is an honor and a joy to have the privilege of sharing with you, dear readers, the hope that I’ve found through Jesus, with the writing that I get to do on this blog.

I love you and I pray for you often.

Your time is precious, so it’s important to me that I offer you quality content that points to Jesus along with practical applications you can take away from here.

Do you know what you believe and why you believe it? Our beliefs matter. Each of us has a belief grid through which we look at life. How we perceive subjects such as God, Jesus, the Bible, and redemption makes a huge difference in our lives. Join us as we take a very practical look at significant Christian issues and answer the question - Why does this matter to you?

While thinking and praying about where God would direct me in His plans for this space in 2017, I began talking with a sweet friend of mine- and our plans began to converge.

This friend is also a writer, a lady who has a deep love for Jesus, a woman who delights in sharing the hope that she has found in God- as anyone who has met her or who reads her blog can attest to. Her name is Melanie Redd.

Though she’s from Tennessee and I’m a Pacific Northwest native, we’ve got a lot in common- such as the shared desire to teach equip, train, and encourage women in their relationship with God.

Melanie and I have decided, Lord willing, and offer a series of posts, each Wednesday, throughout 2017. Every week we will take turns hosting.

This series will be called,

“How to Find Delight in Doctrine: Learn what you believe & why it matters.”

Our goal is to write about systematic theology in an accessible and fun way while answering the important question,

“What does the whole Bible teach us today?”

I believe that doctrine is simply about getting to know God better.

The more we know someone, the better equipped we are to love them.

Tim Challies said it this way,

“Your love for God is limited by your knowledge of Him so that you can really only love Him as far as you know Him.”

Do you know what you believe and why you believe it? Our beliefs matter. Each of us has a belief grid through which we look at life. How we perceive subjects such as God, Jesus, the Bible, and redemption makes a huge difference in our lives. Join us as we take a very practical look at significant Christian issues and answer the question - Why does this matter to you?

  1. I am so looking forward to reading. The Bible says to delight ourselves in the Lord, and I believe that means we are to delight in reading His Word. Thank you so much for sharing this! Bless you!
