The Life of a Devotional Mother

Trillia Newbell:

Many Bible scholars and pastors argue that in order to truly grasp the Bible, the reader must return to the original text, learn Hebrew or Greek, and probably know some ancient history. This is wise encouragement. But as a mom to two very young children, I’m daunted by the prospect of trying to do anything else. We (I am speaking for mothers) are happy when we get in any quiet time of study.

Though mothers of young children may not be able to spend hours studying each day, we can still grow in our understanding of the Word without attempting to take up Greek.


This is a terrific short film directed by John Kahrs, blending hand-drawn and computer animation:
