The 24th Day of Community: Anne Lang Bundy

So who is Anne Lang Bundy? Here’s how she describes herself.

As her King’s ambassador.

As wife to John.

As mother to five children.

As teacher to five homeschooled children.

As lay minister to all.

As a writer of all things Bible.

She wouldn’t say this, but she’s also a gifted Bible teacher and thinker. A great encourager. And she’s working on a novel about King David.

You tweet or retweet one of her blog posts, and you get more than a thank you; you get a blessing.

What a great heart this woman, this lover of God, has. She makes no apology for her belief in God. She first met him, she says in 1985, and she’s never looked back. She was called to ministry to 2002, and her ministry is to build up the body of believers.

On her blog, Building His Body, she tackles topics from rejection and faithfulness to sex and gluttony. If you’re looking for straight up, solid Bible teaching on line, you’ve now found it. And you’ll find tenderness, too, like the letter she wrote to her husband John.

Anne is also a regular guest blogger at Russell Holloway’s place, Bullets and Butterflies, where she answers the “question of the week,” like how much of a good thing is too much? Or why do Christians fight each other? Or is it okay for a male and female to room together if they have no romantic intentions?

Visit Building His Body. Follow her on Twitter. And see firsthand what it means to love God – love that’s poured outwards on the people she ministers to.

(In December, a number of us participating in the “Twelve Days of Community” - see the button at the top right - sponsored by The High Calling Blogs. The purpose was to highlight the blog or web site of someone other than ourselves during the season of Advent and Christmas. I liked the idea so much that I’m going to continue to do that -- highlight a blog or web site of a person whose thoughts and writing have had an impact on me and others.)

I 'bumped' into Anne's blog for the first time with One Word Tuesday -- and was enthralled. Thanks for highlighter her good work!

Lyla Willingham Lindquist said...

All true. Anne is a remarkable one. Thanks for your kind words for her, Glynn.

Oh my.

I've been mostly offline for a day, occupied with life, with just enough time to reply to a couple of emails, tweets and blogs.

I just now got online today and find this? I'm stunned and honored and (no surprise here) in tears. It's an amazing thing to discover how someone else desribes me to others. I don't know what to say except thank you, Glynn.

And may the Lord return to you hundredfold the blessing and honor you've given me.

Cool! I'm following her now, and we're from the same state!

You got it right... This is exactly how I see Anne, too. An encourager, for sure. Just like you, Glynn!

(Hi Anne!)

Hi Brad!

And hello to everyone else who commented. I was so surprised by this yesterday that when I thanked Glynn I forgot to thank all of the people who posted such glowing comments. You have all been a great encouragement. I pray that I stay close to the Lord, walking in His shadow, so that I live up to all this.
