Meet Precept Ministries own Jan Priddy!
So far we have introduced you to David Arthur, and to Pete DeLacy in our blog posts. Today, meet one of Precept's absolute jewels, Jan Priddy. Also known as Priddy Please, and Pretty Jan Priddy. Her passion for the Word and for Bible study leaders, along with years of experience make her the answer woman for all the leader questions.
Jan Priddy, what are your 5 favorite Bible studies?
Since Don was in the military we moved around the world introducing new areas to Precept Bible studies. When I started a new class I would begin with Lord, I want to know You.
Then we would do the following Precept Upon Precept studies:
- Philippians. The doctrine in this book is so practical for everyday life.
- Covenant. This is the foundation of our spiritual life.
- Sermon on the Mount. This study is so rich in truth, and studying Jesus' own words is so humbling
And follow up with either one of these:
- John. This study is like walking with Jesus.
- Romans. It is the bedrock of the New Testament and I always wanted my students to have this truth in their lives.
If I were in the same scenario today, I would still start with Lord, I want to know You , but then follow up with Lord, teach me to study the Bible in 28 days before I did the others .
