Journeywomen


Oct 8, 2018

On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I’m chatting with Elyse Fitzpatrick on the topic of being a student of the Bible. We talked about everything from what Elyse would tell her 20-or-30-year-old self about Bible study to what has sustained her study of the Bible for forty plus years.

You should know that Elyse is a hero of mine who I found out about from my very own mentors. So you’ll know her a little better, Elyse holds a certificate in biblical counseling from CCEF and an M.A. in Biblical Counseling from Trinity Theological Seminary. She has authored 23 books on daily living and the Christian life. Elyse loves to proclaim the good news of the gospel: That Jesus, the Second Person of the Trinity, perfectly obeyed all the Law in our place, suffered in isolation and agony as punishment for our sin, died, and then rose again, all for our justification. A frequent speaker at women’s conferences, she has been married for over 40 years and has three adult children and six really adorable grandchildren. I genuinely hope this conversation with Elyse encourages you to get into the Word in whatever way you can, no matter what season you find yourself in today.
