About Me

Hi, I’m Valerie. Welcome to my site! I use this blog to talk about what I am reading and discovering about the Bible and God’s story of redemption of His people through His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus tells us,

You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me.

John 5:39

Following the words of my Saviour, I read the Bible as one who has been redeemed from sin through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and received the gift of the Holy Spirit.

One day, the Lamb Himself will be our lamp.

In this time before He comes again, I read God’s Word in order to learn more about, to draw closer to, and become more like Jesus. I claim His promise that if I seek Him, I will find Him on every page, in every story.

I approach the Bible with these things in mind:

  • The Bible is like no other book. The Bible is God’s Word, divinely authored and written by humans inspired by the Holy Spirit.
  • God as Author unites all of the Bible together in a grand story that tells us over and over of the same mysterious truth:
    The Creator of the universe became human in order to rescue His people from our sin and to make all things new.
  • The work of seeking that we do by reading and re-reading, equipped by the Spirit and the help of other Christians, reveals to us the great mystery and genius of how God saved His people and what He has planned for us.

I have several years of New Testament Greek training, and in my day job, I’m a linguist. You can find out more about me here.
