Wielding The Word


I think I was about seven years old when I first became excited about the Bible. At a church children’s club I attended, we heard the story of Joseph. It was told over several weeks, and it seemed that every instalment ended on a cliffhanger. I had never heard the story before, and I could hardly wait to find out what would happen next!

I remember going home and picking up a Bible that I’d received as a baby and trying to read it, but it was impossible. The font was tiny and the language archaic. I only got a few lines into it before I gave up, thinking it would have to wait until I was older…

Fortunately that wasn’t the end of my interest in the Bible!  I’m honoured to be sharing at Jana Carlson’s blog Wield The Word as part of a series where various women share about what the Bible means to them and how it has impacted their lives.

I’d love it if you’d join me there to read more!

    1. Glad it brought back memories for you, Linda! I found that little Bible again at my parents’ house after writing this post and it was even tinier than I remember!
