My journey with the Bible as story began when I took a job in a church-sponsored Bible activity center. But the idea of "telling" took an exciting turn when I discovered the Network of Biblical Storytellers (NOBS), and Tom Boomershine and other people who were alive with joy and a sense of mission. Since then I've attended three NOBS annual Festival Gatherings, opening my world to the extraordinary people who tell Bible stories with conviction in the power of story to elevate and inspire.

Becoming a teller of Scriptural tales is much more than finding a community of good people who share a love of the Bible. Each story told is a journey that moves me deeply, spiritually. When I work and pray to "get" a Bible story—conversing with God about His Story—I feel submerged, not just in the history surrounding the story, but also in things timeless.
