I love writing because it helps me think through my Bible reading and studying as well as my personal process of sanctification. When I strive to put things into words, the learning experience goes much deeper than it would have without taking the time to write. I have a strong compassion for evangelism, discipleship, and ministry but sometimes cannot find the words to say in the moment. Writing helps me prepare and ponder how I will give a reason for the hope that I have in Jesus Christ in life’s circumstances, cultural events, theology, and more. I pray that my writing would be as John Piper once said–that it would be Christ-exalting, not self-exalting, and exist to instruct and transform others into gospel obedience and worship. May God give me grace to do so.
