About the Author:

About the Author: Having read the Bible cover to cover 16+ times, I felt led to write Bible Passages That Can Influence Your Life to show that the Bible is still significant in our lives today. Since these posts are examples of how I apply the Bible to my daily life, they don't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the Bible passages. Will you relate to these passages in the same ways that I have? My desire is that through these examples, you will learn to relate to the Bible in a way that is personally significant to you! Don't follow me, Follow Jesus!
