Hi, friend. I’m Amy. And I’m so glad you’re here.

There are fewer places I have felt more at home than in a seminary classroom.

I loved studying the Bible in-depth, learning how theological concepts connected to every-day life, and digging beyond the surface to mine God’s Word for the riches that it offers. But when I graduated, I found myself constantly disappointed with daily studies and devotionals. I found that they either offered six quick solutions for spiritual life (and they never worked for me) or, if they did study the Bible in-depth, they took 90 minutes each day (something my working and parenting life couldn’t afford).

And so I decided to put my training to work.

What I have created is a small series of verse-by-verse Bible studies that help everyday Christians go deep in God’s Word, connect their theology to their daily life of discipleship, and do it all in about 20 minutes of study each day. Each study offers fives days of study each week and includes the nerdy stuff of Bible study – like book overview studies, word studies that deal with Greek and Hebrew, literary genre, and more. All of this can be summed up in one word: exegesis. It’s formal name for studying God’s Word verse-by-verse, and I promise you this: once you’ve tried it, you won’t want to study any other way.

I also have a book coming out September, 2021. Woot! I’m thrilled to share that I’ve signed a book agreement with B&H Publishing to write Fix Your Eyes: How Theology Leads to Worship. I’m in first draft mode so send coffee and prayers, and be on the lookout for more info on its launch into the world in 2021.

I’m a writer … but not just a writer. I’m also a wife, mother and church planter with my sweet family here in Greenville, NC. We love our little life here, and we’ve loved buying our first home, putting down roots, and planting Trinity Church Greenville for the glory of God and the good of our city. You can follow along with our family on Instagram, or join my email list to stay in touch.

  • Hi Amy love your letter about morning devotional time. It is the quiet time we need and should seek to be filled up with the presence of God but in this fast pace time we live in I fine it not easy.I too am not a morning early riser but I know the need for time spent in solitude with my God to lift me up and get me out the door. Thank you for your writing, I would love to read more of your thoughts on Jesus who I also love to talk about. Miss you Karen Pizzo

  • Reading you from across the pond, I just wanted to thank you for your piece on Grudem and Trump. I’ve been brought up rooted in evangelicalism, and I’m so saddened at what I see in the US. I just pray that your generation will lead a new revival of a social and more reflective evangelicalism that maintains its roots but broadens its inclusiveness instead of becoming so narrow and regressively fundamentalist.

  • Thank you for what you have shared from the perspective of a millennial. I have way passed that but shared your sentiment that the agenda of some evangelicals seems too narrow and selective and do not reflect not what the scripture has taught us in it s holism : respect for those at the margins (disable, vulnerable members of the society, migrants and the oppressed), hospitality to strangers, characters that reflects Christ, bless to be a blessing to the nations.
    Keep writing as you words gives authenticity to a Christian hope that is beyond dry dogma.

  • Hi Amy – I read with interest your page on women in ministry and teaching issues. I am finding that since I am going to be 63 in February, that I am extremely weary of the issues surrounding women “preaching” or “teaching” in the church, especially since many men feel women should “keep silent” in the church. The issues surrounding asking your husband at home come fraught with increasing numbers of women being divorced and widowed as they age, with no husband at home. It seems the best place for women to minister is to other women, and really, to do it totally outside of the church building so as not to set off the sensitive brethren in the church on issues of “insubordination” or “usurpation.” In some churches I have been in, things occasionally heat up to the point where I seriously am wondering if females should set foot in a church building at all so they wouldn’t run afoul of the “silence” and no “teaching” rules. I have even had one man say if I didn’t change my “stubborn” attitude over “submission” in the church I was going to suffer eternal damnation. He couldn’t distinguish between the anguish of being treated as a stupid silly child once again from wanting to be able to fully express my calling as a Daughter of God and joint heir with Christ.

    I can appreciate the heartache of women who want only men pastors to preach/teach at women’s conferences feeling they do it better than women. With that attitude in the mix, it is really difficult, sometimes impossible, to craft women’s ministry outreaches to women, whether held inside or outside a church building.

    I pray that as we move forward, the church at large and locally will allow women the full respect and cherishing and opportunities they deserve as Daughters of God, joint heirs with Christ and Ambassadors of the Kingdom in calling all people to be reconciled to God.

    Thanks for your excellent writings.

  • I would like to see an example lesson of Rooted Home. I do like to see how you use and apply the Hebrew and Greek.

  • Hi Amy! I just subscribed to your daily studies for a year. My daughter shared you with me and I viewed some of your Instagram posts. I was “hooked!” I love the way you explain the Hebrew meaning of a word and give more explanation of what God meant it to be to Israel. It makes me have a much richer picture of who our God is! Thanks for offering this study to women who desire to deepen their understanding of God and scripture. I am retiring in 1 week and wish I had this available to me when I was 20! But better late than never! Thanks again. Looking forward to a fresh walk with God in my grey hair years!
