Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 23

Scene 23. Take 2. Annnnd … action! I love this story so much. I find it ironic that it’s so action-packed and full of goodies, yet it’s really not a story we ever hear about in terms of Christian history. I’m betting many a screenplay have been loosely based on the events that took place,… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 23

Bible studies for writers | 1 Chronicles 27

If you’ve ever grown up in or around a military family, you might resonate with the first part of this chapter. My dad was a National Guardsman, and once a month, he packed up and disappeared for a weekend to some mystical place I never fully understood, and he spent a week during summers training… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Chronicles 27

Bible studies for writers | 1 Chronicles 17

From one humble man to another, what an intimate chapter this is. Just look at it: first, you have God telling David He’s perfectly happy living and being honored in a tent. Then, you have David telling God that he still feels like a little shepherd boy and can’t EVEN believe he is king of… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Chronicles 17

Bible studies for writers | 1 Samuel 27

Wow. David is so desperate to keep his life that he not only goes to live with his enemies, but he starts fighting for them, too. It’s a little hard to see all that’s happening here because the names are unfamiliar, but the one name we definitely should recognize is that of the tribe of… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Samuel 27

Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 17

When we first moved to Thailand, we attended a church in a mall, and every Sunday after church, we’d go down to the mall’s food court for lunch. In Thailand, every mall has a food court, and every food court has a section that sells only Thai food. You can literally feed a family for… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 17

Bible studies for writers | Exodus 20

I struggled for years to understand the purpose of the Ten Commandments. The whole story of God showing up through thunder and lightning and then bellowing out these commands of how we should act is, as the Israelites thought too, terrifying. I’ve probably told this story before, but in case you missed it, I grew… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Exodus 20

Bible studies for writers | Genesis 8

Ok, the end of the flood is nigh. Let’s do some more math: Let’s just start with 150 days, since it says 150 days. We’ll scratch the previous days’ math because there was a question about a seven-day period and a 40-day period, and I don’t really want to argue with the very clearly stated… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Genesis 8

Hey Delta, Glad My Kids Are OK Because Your Rep Ryan Davis Is Not

(I feel I should edit this a bit for clarity regarding the paragraph about the chaperone. The paragraph below, regarding the chaperone, is worded poorly, and I apologize. My intentions were not to make something seem like it is not. I was aware of the chaperone policy of China Southern. China Southern does state that… Continue reading Hey Delta, Glad My Kids Are OK Because Your Rep Ryan Davis Is Not
