Beth Hyduke





Beth likes using her Bible to help others troubleshoot common questions and doubts that tend to crop up in us all, pre- and post-salvation. Her goal is to encourage all Christians to re-engage their Bibles by reminding them that this is the medium through which God speaks to us, and to direct questioning unbelievers to the Head Answerer, Jesus Christ. Most of her articles are adapted from answers to real questions that were submitted to GotQuestions ministries where she volunteers as a writer. Outside of GotQuestions and Blogos, she is a jack-of-some-trades: a medical professional, an amateur artist, a galeophobic surfer, a wannabe dog whisperer, and a very poor autobiographer.
