I remember listening to the CD Victory for Daughters when I was about 15 years old, and being so inspired by Kelly Brown's message and the example of the things she chose to do in her single years. One of the things that stuck out to me most was what she said about writing theological position papers and reading theological books from her father's personal library. From that day on, I knew that when I graduated from homeschool-high school, that was a pursuit I wanted to prioritize.
What I didn't realize at that time was that as soon as I graduated, my time would quickly fill up with other pursuits. I guess I thought that the day after I graduated, I would sit there twiddling my thumbs, thinking to myself, "well now what should I do?".
It wasn't really like that... at all. I started my first year out of high school with a busy working schedule of teaching piano lessons to 18 students, plus helping my family to remodel and manage three rentals, and begin remodeling on the home we were living in while we lived in it. Over the next few years, I didn't take much time to study theology at all. It took the encouragement of a kind friend to nudge me to take my study seriously, and some creative thinking and deliberate determination to find a way to make it a happen.
This blog is designed to give practical ideas and encouragement to young ladies who want to learn theology, but just don't seem to be able to find the time. If that's where you are right now, get ready for a great adventure!
