Is your time in God's Word a "have-to" or a "get-to"?

For nearly two decades, I dutifully checked the “devotions” box on my daily to-do list, even though the Bible seemed boring, meaningless, and irrelevant to my life. I was determined to “be a good Christian”, but I was just going through the motions. 

Marriage, motherhood, and a multitude of agonizing experiences revealed I was powerless to live a life that glorified God and, even after all that Bible reading, I still could not discern God’s will for real life situations.

Learning to Wield The Word Changed My Life

As I learned how to study the Bible in practical ways, time spent in God’s Word became a rewarding experience—like digging for priceless treasure instead of plodding across a desert. 

I discovered that the Bible answers my deepest questions and actually empowers me to live (and write) for God’s glory—in every situation and stage and season. 

Today, God’s Word is everything to me, and I can’t fathom a life without it.

Experience the Transforming Power of the Word

God has ordained that words are powerful—His and ours.

I write to share:

how God's Word changes my life,

how it can change yours, and

how we can wield our own written words for His glory.

Jana(StudioBoheme)-02

Learning to wield the Word transformed every area of my life, and I believe it will do the same for you because...

It’s personal. It’s God’s Word to me and to you. He gave it to us not as a lifeless textbook we’re assigned to read to the end of our days, but as the means by which we get to know Him.

It’s also powerful. God’s Word is a sword, alive and active (Ephesians 6:17, Hebrews 4:12).

And it’s productive. Like bread to our bodies, God’s Word is essential nourishment to our souls—spiritual fuel (Matthew 4:4).

Do you want to experience the transforming power of God’s Word in your own life and writing?

Join me as we learn to WIELD THE WORD for the glory of God!

JUST FOR FUN

Here are a few tidbits about me I share with my friends, just so y’all know what you’re getting into when you hang out with me.

I don’t iron. Ever. Neither does my husband. We gave it up when it became a source of tension in our marriage.

I got my belly button pierced after our third baby was born. Thankfully, it was a very temporary stop in the world of navel adornment.

In Grade 2, I wore my sweater inside out to start a new fashion trend. My mom tried so hard to change my mind, but I was—and still am—stubborn. I gave up and changed my sweater at first recess. 

The most spectacular feat of athleticism I’ve ever performed was winning a youth group Twister competition as an adult leader when I was 9 months pregnant with our first child.

The second greatest—and only other—athletic achievement of my life was getting the 3rd place ribbon on the 400-meter run in elementary school. There were 3 runners.
