“It’s a privilege to join IFBR’s board because scripture has had a profoundly formative impact on my life. Most often, the Holy Spirit uses scripture to remind me who I am and empower me for what he calls me to do. I long for Christians to dwell in God’s word in ways that inform and transform their daily lives.”
