Welcome to My Website
Hello, Everyone! Welcome to the adventure that is Leah Living by Faith! Isn’t faith an adventure all on its own? Now you get me, Leah, as your guide, as we wander into both known and unknown territory. We’ll be seeking out answers to “why Christianity” and exploring spiritual development in both our professional and personal lives. But first I’ll let you in on a little bit about me. Adventures are best when you do it with people you know.
I am currently a junior at Belmont University where I was part of Leadership and then President of the Baptist Collegiate Ministry on campus. I was raised in a Christian home, where I was encouraged to ask questions and learn more about my faith in my everyday life. It truly was a blessing to be raised in such a home, as I know of plenty people who walked away from the faith because that freedom of thought was not encouraged. I took an apologetics class in high school which launched my interest in the topic, and of which has only grown since. This interest prompted me to read books such as Mere Christianity by C.S Lewis, A Case for Christ by Lee Strobel, and more to help me strengthen my foundation. This foundation being the objective truth of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who, being fully man and fully God, saved us from the sin and death that dwells within in us. What a joy! Now, I intern at a church here in wonderful middle Tennessee where I am discovering new answers along with plenty of new questions about Christianity and the Bible.
Leah Living by Faith (LLB Faith) essentially stems from a young college student (your new friend here) wanting to find ways to better live by faith in both knowledge and action. In the entrepreneurial world and culture we live in today, it is important that those of the faith apply Christian values in all aspects of our lives and one way that LLB Faith strives to do that is to explore faith in business. Living in a booming city offers plenty of opportunity for those bright minded people to take something they love and turn it into a business. I hope to shine a light on those wonderful people, especially those that apply their faith to their business efforts. But the most important aspect of what LLB Faith is, is the defense of the faith. This is meant to be a place where questions are asked, and answers are sought after humbly and with our minds set on the Lord, always coming back to His Word, the Bible. It is a place to help one another grow in your faith while preparing a reason for your faith.
There is so much more to come and I truly am excited for all to join me as we explore how to defend our faith in the world and how to truly live like Christ followers. This is to encourage you in your faith and in love to one another, speaking kindly and humbly even in our defense, for all of it is for the glory of our Heavenly Father. Buckle up and hold on tight! Let’s get a move on.
