Welcome to Aspiring Theologian!
I loved to read as a kid. I was one of those kids who went to the library every week and got five books out. You know, the kid who would hide books under his bed and pull them out after his parents went to bed. I can’t tell you how many flashlight batteries I went through. But somewhere along the line I lost the passion. The drive to read left me. I began to hate school. Learning became a boring chore. I slid through the rest of school barely studying and still managed to get almost all A’s and B’s. I’ll chalk that up to good old DNA.
Then I moved out to California and started attending Bible college. I began studying something that actually interested me. Like a prehistoric skeleton, I unearthed my passion and drive to read and learn. I feel like a kid again. I can’t read enough. Everything that’s thrown at me in school only raises more questions that requires more hours finding the hidden answers. Enter Aspiring Theologian.
Aspiring Theologian is my trusty quest log on my journey in finding the lost treasure of learning. If I’m Steve from Blue’s Clues, Aspiring Theologian is my handy dandy notebook. As I look at the world around me I am continually pointed back to a Creator and Redeemer, who has given me the privilege of reading his message to me, the Bible, for myself. As I learn more about life, about God and the Bible, about the world around me, and about the creative process of writing, I’ll whip out my handy dandy notebook and scribble away. This blog also acts as a painting canvas that I can brush words on, mix different combinations of letters, and get my hands dirty trying to learn how to become a better writer. My goal is to learn and writing my thoughts down helps me mentally articulate what I’m learning. I won’t promise it will be easy, but at least it will be fun.
