Welcome! Here I will share with you why I started this blog and what I hope to accomplish. If you’d like to read more about who I am, click here.
The trouble started when I was working 10-12 hour shifts at my job and fighting traffic for an hour and a half to get home to my family, leaving me hardly any time to study my Word the way I wanted to. That bothered me to no end. I tried to fill that void by reading devotions online and while they were inspiring, very seldom did I walk away feeling like I had actually learned something. If you had asked me an hour later to recall what I read, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you. Having said that, the purpose of this blog is to serve as a sort of Bible study. I want to be able to provide a solution to those individuals that are searching for something to satisfy their desire for God’s Word. By doing all of the studying – the heavy lifting – I hope to provide you with knowledge and insight that will inspire you to grab your Bible off the shelf and study it for yourself, renewing your passion for God and His Word as a result. Not just basic principles, or “milk”, as Paul called it, but the “meat” too. And during our time together, you can expect me to nudge you towards your purpose because I absolutely intend to do so. You are too gifted and God has placed far too much inside of you for me to pass up the opportunity to invite you to share it with the rest of us. The world needs what you are carrying.
I call this space “Fresh Outta Milk” because I believe it is time for us to pour the milk down the drain and take in biblical truths that will not only sustain and strengthen us but will also draw us back to our first love – our Father. When we become estranged from the gospel, this can give birth to a lack of enthusiasm and passion, which leads to spiritual complacency. That is the stuff of nightmares and I don’t want that for you.
Now that you’ve read about my purpose, let’s get started so that we can begin to uncover yours. I’ll see you inside. ❤
