Today’s guest blogger is Suzanne Schmieding, our Regional Conference Speaker in Philadelphia, PA.
Last month marked my 2-year anniversary with Logos.I thank God for this company and the Bible software Bob and Dale Pritchett and their families have brought to the world. They have hired a team of nearly 200 employees, all working to help send Logos Bible Software around the world.
I first became aware of Logos Bible Software in 1999. Right away, I saw the magnitude and potential of this biblical software. Not only had I already owned and regularly used several other Bible software programs, I had already graduated Valley Forge Christian College in 1993 with a B.S. in Bible and was working in ministry. But after purchasing Logos’ top-of-the-line package—which at that time was Scholar’s Library—I didn’t need the other Bible programs anymore. Logos did it all and more.
Having worked in sales over 25 years, I called Logos and asked if they had any job openings for sales representatives. At that time, I was told there were no openings. That shot my idea down, or so I thought. God is so good; 7 years later, I was looking for jobs online and saw an ad for a Logos Bible Software Field Sales Representative for the Philadelphia, PA area.I jumped at the chance to send in my resume, and the rest is history.
Now, as a Regional Conference Speaker for Logos, it is my job to present Logos at churches and conferences and to area pastors, church leadership, lay leaders, and Sunday school teachers—really to anyone who will listen to me. I talk about God wherever I am, and I always mention Logos, the best Bible software in the world. How can you talk about God and not talk about the Bible? When I talk about God, Logos Bible Software comes up. They work hand in hand.
There have been many wonderful experiences in my 2 years with Logos, but let me tell you of just this one. It symbolizes what I have found over and over again. When people buy Logos, they are excited, inspired, and grateful for what Logos can do for them and their walk with God.I recently went to a conference and a youth leader came up to me and told me (paraphrased), “You inspired me to dig into God’s Word using Logos when you came to my church a year ago.I saw the passion that you have and the tears in your eyes when you spoke of God’s love and how using Logos would inspire us to know God more intimately so I purchased Logos, and I was glad I did!” He said, “I’m not just saying this; it was your passionate presentation that inspired me to buy Logos and to study and draw closer to God.” Then he thanked me.
His words touched my heart. That is what I want for everyone; to see how Logos can transform their relationship with God. I think I have the best job: to be able to help people see and learn about the love of God more than they ever thought they could. Logos Bible Software transforms sermon preparation, personal Bible study, and theological research. It enables you to dig even deeper into the riches of God’s Word within seconds, so you can learn to be everything God wants you to be in Him, all for the glory of God.
Regional Conference Speakers introduce the Body of Christ to Logos Bible Software and promote and facilitate deeper study of God’s Word. It would be our privilege to come to your church, ministry, school or community event to conduct a Logos Bible Study Workshop. There is no cost for these events, and in fact, those in attendance will receive a discount on their purchase of a Logos base package. Our speakers are located in:
- Los Angeles
