My Big Fat Greek Mindset
A natural outgrowth of her interest in the biblical feasts led Valerie to consider how people think about religious and spiritual topics. The result was a workbook within a book entitled, My Big Fat Greek Mindset. The reader is treated to an in-depth, but easily digestible treatment of the differences between how the ancient Hebrews thought and acted, how the ancient Greeks behaved, and how these patterns affect modern culture today.
The need for this excellent research is not obvious at first. Yet, a person’s life is based upon specific history, culture, and traditional modes of thinking and acting. This creates a mindset and an approach to everyday living. A person is constrained to operate within that which is most real to him/her.
Those who love Elohim and desire to follow the Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit, will find that this mindset limits the paths taken in life. The reader will learn from My Big Fat Greek Mindset that people of the Bible had a different way of thinking and acting than people in the western world today. The Hebrew mindset had its beginning with the nature of the Hebrew language itself, and its emphasis upon actions – not reason. Abraham was told to cross over. He was not told to listen, think, and reason his way into becoming a new nation. His job was to act in obedience, rather than think. Valerie’s book will help the reader to “cross over” to an entirely new way of thinking.
Valerie is a teacher at heart, and presents a workshop on this topic. Students find themselves in an interactive situation where they can learn this liberating material with a hands-on approach.
