I'm Beth Jones and I'm so glad you stopped by and I hope you leave encouraged, inspired and empowered ... and I hope you come back for more!
At The Basics With Beth, we are all about helping you do three things: get the basics, live the life and do the stuff!
As a believer for over 45 years, and as a pastor and Bible teacher for over 30 years, I've noticed something. People don't want hype or magic-bullet sermons -- and they don't need great sounding theories; they deserve the basic, practical, proven and time-tested wisdom that comes from God's Word.
These are the things that transformed my life. I started off as a good Catholic girl with an idyllic childhood -- but when I was eight years old, my little heart was broken as my parents split up and eventually divorced. As the oldest of four sisters, I felt the weight of helping my mom raise my sisters and all of that took its toll. When I was nineteen years old, I came into a personal relationship with Jesus and when He entered the scene, not only did He save, heal and restore my life -- He saved and blessed my family, too! My parents, step-parents and all of my sisters all came to Christ and God began a wonderful work of restoring a very broken-hearted family. Since that time, knowing Jesus, learning the Bible basics and laying a strong foundation of God's Word in my heart has been the very thing that God's used to elevate my life in every area -- including, my marriage, family and ministry -- so that's why I am passionate about bringing these basics to everyone who will listen!
So, whether you are living the dream or filled with big dreams, or on the struggle-bus with a broken-heart, I'm here to help you get the Bible basics; and to encourage you to live the life God has planned for you; and to empower you to do the stuff God has called you to do.
Here are just a few things I know the Bible basics will do for you ...
