During high school, I was in the medical academy. I thought that it was the field that I wanted to go into as a career and that I was going to be a nurse. During my senior year I took 2 classes that had to do with the medical field: EKG Technician and Home Health Aid/Phlebotomy. I enjoyed being in those classes and learning more about the medical field. Originally, after I graduated in 2018, I thought that I was going to go straight into the Army and thought that I would like to do that. But I was taking a prescription for migraines and ...

Almost 3 years ago, I was reading a website I frequent called The Rabbit Room. I am already thinking I should write something about this incredible community, but I digress. On this particular visit, I came across an article by Heidi Johnston that briefly highlighted BibleProject, an animation studio in Portland, Oregon (https://rabbitroom.com/2017/05/the-bible-project/).

It is just part of being ...

Prayer is hard sometimes for missionaries too.
I have a good friend who knows I struggle with prayer sometimes. She does too. And we both encourage each other to ...

God is good, all the time, and all the time God is good. My name is Gracie Kinsey and I am an intern with Children’s Bible Ministries in Townsend, TN. I am going to share with you today the ways that God has been faithful and sovereign in guiding me to the CBM internship program.
In the summer of 2014, my close friend, named Ashlee, invited me to a summer camp called Camp Gilead in Polk City, Florida. I didn’t know it at the time but Camp Gilead is currently one of many CBM camps. Timidly, but willingly, I accepted her invitation and ...
