Your theology matters. Jesus has called you to be a doer of His Word, not just a hearer. This requires us to have a “head knowledge” in order to know what Jesus has called us to do, but it doesn’t stop there. We need this knowledge to sink into our hearts in order to change us and impact how we live. This is how our theology fuels our doxology, or our worship of God in our everyday lives! If we’re parents or around children, this impacts how we talk and teach and relate to them, too!

Amy is a Bible teacher, a writer, a speaker, a church planter’s wife, the owner and creator of Tiny Theologians, and the author of “Fix Your Eyes: How Theology Shapes Our Worship”. In this conversation, she helps us dig deeper into this idea of how our theology impacts our everyday lives. She talks to us about how to safeguard against this tendency to just learn things about God and His Word (head knowledge) without it changing our lives (and our hearts). She talks to us about how we can explain theology in a way that kids can grasp, too. It’s a rich conversation you don’t want to miss!

Here are some questions that Amy answers in this interview:
- Does theology matter for the average Christian? Why? (7:13)
- Jesus talks about being doers of the word and not just hearers. Why do we have such a tendency to be hearers only? (15:57)
- How do we safeguard against a joyless head knowledge when we learn things about God and His Word? How do we allow theology to shape our lives? (19:35)
- Can you give us an example of a theological doctrine we might learn about and how it can impact our daily lives and lead us to worship? (25:42)
- For those of us who have kids or teach children, how much are they ready for? Are there certain concepts/doctrines we should focus on? (36:48)
- What are some practical ways we can help our kids understand the purpose behind theology and go actually apply it to their lives? (45:04)
