My name is Emily Skipper Busby. I’m from a very small southern town in the USA. I grew up here and now I plan to raise my daughter here. Recently, I found the Christian Leaders Institute online for further biblical Christian education (Learn more about Bible courses and ministry classes online, Click Here). I also want to strengthen my walk with Christ.
A Little About Me
When asked to share my story, I’m not going to lie, I trembled at the thought of writing this story about myself. Am I going to be interesting enough? Will people care what I have to say? Am I worthy enough? All of these questions floated through my head and began to overwhelm me. So, I decided to take a break and go outside for some fresh air and a little chat with God. He reminded me of my worth. When I heard the birds chirping as I walked down the road, God even had the sunshine right on me almost like a spotlight. The world is His stage and He knows my name.
So, I don’t have a big elaborate story of how I came to know Jesus as my friend and savior. I’ve known Jesus for a long time actually. I remember learning about Him as a child and wanting to do the right things to be close to Him. What really made me want to draw even closer to Him recently was having my daughter. The moment I saw her, I was overwhelmed with gratitude. God chose me, of all people, to be her mother.
Further Biblical Christian Education at CLI
Now, I take my walk with Christ a lot more seriously since she came. I only have 18 years with her at home to influence her and guide her. I can read all the parenting books and listen to all the podcasts in the world. However, nothing will ever come close to the word of God.
So, I joined the Christian Leaders Institute because of the calling in my life to know more, do more, and be more for Him. At first, I worried that I was going to have to pay money that I didn’t have in order to further my biblical Christian education and my walk with Christ. Imagine my excitement at finding this program at CLI! It’s so important and special that CLI allows people to grow in the Word of Christ and extend their knowledge of the Bible tuition free.
To be able to spread knowledge of the Word of God in my community and have some big elaborate plan is not what I have right now. Honestly, my main goal in this program is to be able to teach my children about God’s love, grace, and patience in hopes that they pass it down to their children!
