About Me

Hi!  I’m so glad that you’ve come to my little piece of the internet.  I hope you’ve already taken time to read a post or two; if not, please do some exploring when you’re through here. 

There are three main reasons why I write this blog:  I love the Bible and the God of the Bible, I love to write, and I love to read.  Those three things come together in several kinds of posts.  I like to write posts that are devotional and hopefully bring you closer to God.  I also write posts that are somewhat more academic in nature, exploring different aspects of the Bible, which hopefully get you thinking and learning.  I also occasionally like to write reviews of books I have read.  I seldom meet a book I don’t like, but I will give you my honest opinion, whether it be good or bad.  If any of these interest you, I hope that you will choose to either follow this blog (click the link at the very top of the page), follow me on Twitter, or like my page on Facebook.  Each post is published on Twitter and Facebook, so you won’t miss a thing.  I post several times a week, and I hope that you’ll take the time to read a bit, even if you aren’t able to read everything I publish here.

Please stop by my welcome page to learn a bit more about the blog and find links to help you explore what is available.

Since this is an about me page, I suppose I should introduce myself. 

I am in my late 20s, and so close to joining the 30-somethings.  I was born in Joplin, Missouri, and I grew up in Webb City, which is right next to Joplin.  After high school, I went away to college. I attended Ozark Christian College in Joplin, earning a Bachelor of Biblical Literature.  I married my husband about a month after graduation.  A year later, we moved to West Texas where I work full time while writing on the side.  My goal is to return to school for a Master’s degree and make writing a more significant part of my life.  If you want to read more about my life, you can check out my testimony.

I have considered myself a writer most of my life, writing my first novel in junior high and a sequel in high school.  Neither was published, but I hope to complete and publish a novel in the future.  I also have written poetry, but my true love has become writing about the Bible.  My favorite Old Testament book is Isaiah, my favorite Gospel is John, and my favorite letter is Romans. If you are curious about where I’ve been published, click here to see my writing credits.

 I enjoy reading both fiction and nonfiction books.  I like studying history, most often church history, with my favorite area of study being the Stone-Campbell Movement.

If you're interested in seeing some of my favorite books, go to my My Favorite Books page.  My favorite blogs are listed on the right side of this page.

I guess that’s about all I have to say for now.  Please drop me a line and introduce yourself as well.  You can get in touch with me on Twitter or Facebook, or you can email me at kirraantrobus@gmail.com.

  1. Good post, Kirra. Nice to meet you. (You commented on my blog, Something About The Joy). We certainly have much in common. I love the Lord too, and I love the Bible. In fact, I've been asked by my pastor to preach the last Sunday of August and I'll be talking about John 12, where Jesus makes his triumphal entry. I'll be talking about how often God's thoughts are very different than ours. A donkey instead of a war horse, says the OT prophecy! What kind of a king takes over a kingdom that way?!

    I've also written a novel. If you like reading, you might want to check it out at http://www.zinovysjourney.com.

    Blessings on you.

    1. The triumphal entry really was a great moment, especially when compared to the people's messianic expectation and then the complete shift at the crucifixion. I hope it goes well for you. Thank you for coming by!

  2. Hi Kirra, thank you so much for stopping by A Chosen Remnant today. I've been looking around your blog and you have a lot of deep stuff ! I look forward to interacting with you more through our blogs. God bless you and Merry Christmas.
