Readers often ask me what my typical regimen looks like when I’m researching for books and Bible studies.
The truth is—it always looks different.
For the book and Bible study for Scouting the Divine, my research was hands on. Leif and I visited a shepherdess in Oregon, a beekeeper in southern Colorado, a farmer in Nebraska, and a grape-grower in Napa Valley, California. I latched on to each new friend’s words and insights, hungry to unwrap the goodness of Scripture once again.
Other times you’ll find me hankered down on my well-worn green couch with a daunting stack of books nearby, pouring over used commentaries I scored off Amazon.
Still other times, I sign Leif and me up for crazy-pants adventures like the time we traveled to Croatia to pick olives. And sometimes my research isn’t formal at all—chance conversations on golf courses, finding pixie dust on my favorite trail, and sitting in a hardened pew on a Sunday morning.
