through His Word
Beebe Kauffman is the author of Isaiah: Setting Things Right and a co-founder of Lighthouse Bible Studies. She is also the chief editor of Refresh Bible Study Magazine. She has a bachelor’s degree in business, but her heart is in teaching the Bible. She has developed application-based studies for the New Testament books (except Revelation which is event-based) and for Isaiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Daniel in the Old Testament.
Her perspectives and understanding of the Bible have been influenced by some great pastors and teachers, and by the works of great Bible scholars. She was a member of Dr. Adrian Rogers’ church for nineteen years, where she heard the word of God come alive in rich insights and practical application for the daily Christian life. She listened to Dr. Charles Stanley’s In Touch radio program for fifteen years, and heard another very practical exposition and application of Scripture. She became familiar with such reliable sources of definitions, customs of Biblical times, and interpretations of Scripture as Matthew Henry, Adam Clarke, Albert Barnes, Dr. Spiros Zodhiates, and The Linguistic Key to the Greek New Testament, among others.
Beebe has taught the Bible to women, high school girls, and Vacation Bible School preteens. During her four years in the witnessing program, Evangelism Explosion, she heard a wide range of concerns, objections, and perspectives. On eight overseas mission trips to Brazil, Uruguay, and Ukraine, she participated in evangelism, taught Vacation Bible School, and spoke to children, teenagers, and women about faith in God and life with Him.
Her heart’s desire is:
- to promote Bible study in our fast-paced world
- to help women understand the Bible and see its relevance to their daily lives
- to encourage women to delight in God and embrace His help
- to share with other women the spiritual journey of the Christian life
Beebe enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching good movies, and scrapbooking homemade Christmas cards.
Mark 12:30-31 “‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (NKJV)
Deuteronomy 10:12-13 “And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the LORD and His statutes which I command you today for your good?” (NKJV)
A Note from Beebe
The Bible Is a Treasure Map
Psalm 119:162 I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great treasure. (NKJV)
Stored up in the pages of Scripture are treasures of information that are needed for life today—wisdom that helps us navigate our lives, and insight and understanding that help make our lives rich and meaningful.
In the Bible, God talks to us about who He is and what He wants for us and from us. He tells us that a close, personal relationship with Him is possible through faith, and He describes the good that comes from that relationship. God understands human nature, and His Word helps us to understand ourselves—the good and the bad. He knows that in a vibrant relationship with Him, we can become better, stronger, more loving, and more satisfied in life. We can be refreshed from the pace and trials of life, and we can become productive in contributing eternal good to those around us.
God uses some of the real-life events and choices of the men and women of the Bible to show us the good that is possible in life for His children, for those who believe in Him and in His Son Jesus Christ. He supplies such good things as grace and peace to those who are joined to Him in love, fellowship, and trust. He uses other events in the Bible to forewarn us about where wrong choices in life can lead us.
Knowing God, loving Him, and being loved by Him is the greatest adventure of life. It’s the greatest treasure that can be possessed, and the Bible is the treasure map that God has given us to find it and to live it.
In the book of Isaiah, God uses vivid pictures to deliver the insights of His truths, instructions, and warnings for life today. These pictures impress us with a message that continues through the book—God fixes things, He sets things right. The first six chapters of Isaiah start by telling us how we can cooperate with God to set things right on a personal level—in our hearts, minds, and daily lives. Isaiah: Setting Things Right is a Bible study of these chapters. You can use the link below to read the back cover of the book.

Sparkling Shoes – New Testament (Shoe Posters that promote Bible study)
Our daily Christian walk can sometimes get weighed down with the repetitions of life and its trials. But ordinary can become extraordinary. What do the New Testament books tell us about the sparkling potential of our lives with God? One shoe poster per book gives us a more complete perspective concerning what God makes possible in our daily lives. (Also available for several books of the Old Testament.)
Diet, Exercise, and Rest for the Soul (based on a devotion from Isaiah: Setting Things Right)
The essentials for a healthy soul are the same as for a healthy body--diet, exercise, and rest. A healthy soul’s diet is the Word of God; its exercises are seeking, loving, serving, and following God; and its rest is found in trusting God and depending on Him. This message can be used to launch a study of Isaiah: Setting Things Right.
Don’t Listen to the Voice of the Enemy (based on Isaiah Chapters 36 and 37)
How do you handle the voice of the enemy in daily life—the voice that discourages you, that tempts you not to trust God, and that demands your surrender to a life captive to fear, worry, and despair? What can we learn from King Hezekiah of Judah about winning the victory when the enemy comes knocking on our door? How do we trust God, no matter what?
Lessons from Home (based on a devotion from Isaiah: Setting Things Right)
Parents share lessons of life with their children, and grandparents with their grandchildren. The principles that we learn at home serve us well for a lifetime. In John 14:23, God tells us that He makes His home in the hearts of His children. What we learn “at home” with Him in Bible study, prayer, and the situations of life blesses our lives and the people who are in them. This message is a collection of “lessons from home.”
