Hello! My name is Pamela Dunning. I live in the United States of America. With some college education already, I recently changed my direction to study the ministry. When I searched online for Bible study courses, I was delighted to find the high level of instruction available at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about studying the Bible online, Click Here). I feel certain that I will be able to learn and become more proficient in sharing my knowledge of Jesus and the Bible with others.
I had a rough childhood. As a Navy family, we moved every couple of years. My father was often away on deployments. So, my mother was overwhelmed with the responsibility of raising nine children. I often felt lost. One Sunday, my older sister took me to a small local church. They showed me there was hope and love in the world. At that church, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior at the age of 12.
I lost focus of Jesus a few times in my walk through life. However, I never lost Him. Furthermore, He has certainly never lost me. God stayed by my side for my entire life, and I rest in the knowledge that He loves me. His love has shown me how to love others.
I very strongly reconnected with God after the birth of my son. There was a fear in me that I might not be around to care for and raise him. Lying in bed, I felt this fear rise up in me. So, I prayed to the Lord that He would show me what I needed to do to be present for my family. A feeling of peace washed through me, and I just knew. There was nothing for me to do. God had already created me as His own. Jesus suffered and died for my redemption. The Holy Spirit stayed with me since the time that I accepted Christ as Savior when I was twelve years old. I knew then that I was truly changed forever!
Recently, I began searching for more understanding of God’s Word. I felt called to study and learn. I found myself wanting to share my Christianity with others. However, I knew that I did not have the right tools to be effective. So, as I said above, I searched online for Bible study courses and found the Christian Leaders Institute. I am amazed at the wealth of knowledge, the extent of classes, and the generosity of this all being offered for free.
I look forward to this journey of study and growth in the Lord. My life is now changing again. I embrace and look forward to these changes. I pray that God brings us all together so that we can learn and worship together.
