God wanted me to devote my mind to study his Word more seriously. I needed to put more into my Bible study to get more out of it. The changes I looked for God wanted to give me. I only had to spend more time with him in his Word. God wanted me to use my brain to learn about him. God created me with a brain and he expected me to use it to glorify him.
How Does the AROMA Approach to Bible Study Work?
As I went deeper in Bible study and learned to use new tools and resources, my passion for Bible study increased. I was having fun (gasp) and sharing what I learned. I started to see signs of a transformed life as Paul described in Romans 12:2. God is still working on me and being on this journey with him is exciting and fills me with hope.
Brain + Bible
I realized that the components that led me to get so much more out of Bible study were the same elements of effective learning I knew from my background in psychiatry, neurology and education. My study of neuroplasticity revealed how Bible study enhances brain health. I was amazed at how God created our brains to learn. Modern science confirms the ancient, all-knowing wisdom of our Creator!

Why? So that we might glorify God as we offer our lives as a living sacrifice for him. We ask the Kingdom of God to come with power when we prioritize the study of God’s Word.
