God's Word in Joy & Pain with Kristin Schmucker | Ep. 2

Episode 2

On this episode of Daily Grace, we chat with Kristin Schmucker on one of our favorite topics - biblical literacy. Kristin is a wife, mama to four, seminary student, Bible study author, and co-founder and CEO of The Daily Grace Co. She is passionate about equipping women to study God’s Word and grow in their knowledge and love for Him. Kristin shares how The Daily Grace Co. came into existence, and how God’s Word comforted her in a season of loss and grief. She breaks down what biblical literacy means and shares encouraging words for anyone new on this journey of growing in biblical literacy. She also talks about the beauty of the local church and how it can enrich our personal growth in biblical literacy.
