I've always wanted to write. When I was in elementary school, I remember meeting an author at our school library. She wrote children's books covering various times in history, which was one of my favorite subjects. Pouring over her books inspired me. When I grew up, I wanted to be an author.
Beginning in May, I started writing a Bible study. I've wanted to write something for a while and had several ideas floating around in my head. What prompted my sitting down in front of a computer was our women's ministry at Redeemer Fellowship needing a change. We decided to mix up the format of our monthly Bible studies and needed materials.
It has been such a blessing getting to write for the ladies in our church. The fruit of the Spirit is a topic the Lord knew I needed to be writing about and meditating on these past few months. The chapter on patience was especially a blessing to write. Pouring over Scriptures about patience while we were in the midst of waiting for T's file was such a comfort to my soul. It was also a huge challenge.
I am almost done with the study (7.5 chapters out of nine are done). I don't know how quickly I'll be able to finish as the next couple of weeks are going to be very busy, but I am excited to present the full work to the ladies in our church. It has been such a blessing to feel like I'm using the degree I got and my passion to see women studying theology and loving God more because of what they are learning. I'm already plotting what I'll write next. But for now, I'm going to focus on finishing chapters 7.5 through 9 and getting life in order.
