Romans 1:20

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."

Biblical Counseling

I have been given the amazing opportunity to informally audit the MABC classes at the Master's College, and my first day has been so wonderful! Before classes started I met with Chris Kropf who gave me all the notes for the classes I will be taking. Then I got to go to my first class which was Methods of Biblical Counseling. We have a new lecturer teaching us, and he basically went through the plan for the semester. I am so looking forward to being exposed to the "how to" of Counseling, which will be so useful to any future ministry alongside my husband.

In the afternoon I went to a short class called Child Development, also with a new lecturer, which will be a great platform to build on as a future mother, Lord willing.

Next was an evening MABC class with Dr. Baker, an extremely wise and experienced lecturer on the Theology of Biblical Counseling. This class is sure to broaden and deepen my understanding of theology which is essential to be able to counsel Biblically.

My final class was Hermeneutics, the study of interpretation of Scripture, which is for sure the most exciting for me! I am so looking forward to learning how to properly study my Bible, using the correct rules of interpretation so that I can more accurately know what the Word of God actually says. All believers should have the opportunity to do this study so that they will not be confused of wrong in understanding God's Word.

Wow! So much to take in and Tuesdays are going to be very trying for me! But it feels good for my mind to be fully engaged again, and in that which is most important!
