Bestselling Author Carol Kent Raves about Logos Bible Software

Carol Kent and Logos Presenter Scott Lindsey during the Women in Ministry Summit.

Last week we ran a blog post on one attendee’s experience at the Women in Ministry Summit Logos hosted. We wanted to share another testimonial of how this day of training and fellowship positively impacted these ministry leaders.

Today’s guest post is from the founder of Speak Up Ministries, Carol Kent, who attended the Summit. Carol is an international public speaker and the bestselling author of several books. She blogs and directs an annual Speak Up Conference to equip the next generation of speakers, writers, and leaders.

Do you have a heart for teaching God’s Word, but a limited budget? Have you ever wondered which reference books you should purchase to best get prepared to minister to others? Do you love the Bible and long to share truth with your Bible class, retreat group, or small group?

I could have answered “Yes” to all of those questions before I was introduced to Logos Bible Software. Now, instead of spreading reference books all over my dining room table to prepare for a message, I have an entire library loaded on my laptop, so I can study on a plane, in my home, or on the road.

Logos Bible Software has revolutionized the way I do Bible study. I have Greek and Hebrew definitions of Bible words at hand by hovering my curser over any verse.

Preparation that used to take me twelve hours for one message now takes only a third of that time.

I love this software, but the best part of Logos is the people who work for this remarkable company. I have never experienced customer service that is so personalized and helpful. Scott Lindsey and the Logos team who sponsored The Women in Ministry Summit in Dallas made learning fun! They were patient, long-suffering, humorous, giving, and encouraging.

I am impressed with their program, but even more, I appreciate the way in which—even at the summit—they created an atmosphere for learning that made the most technologically challenged person feel included. The Women in Ministry Summit rocked in every way.

Here are a few of Carol’s pictures from the Summit. Check out all of the photos from the Women in Ministry Summit in our Facebook album.

The Ninth Annual Logos Bake-Off

We use the word culture to define the shared values and practices of a group, and one can get a real sense of the culture at Logos by our many cook-offs. What sort of things would you learn from a cook-off about the company culture at Logos?

  • We love to eat
  • We value the community building activity of eating together
  • We have a healthy appreciation for competition

Consider the ninth annual Logos bake-off. This event was held on the afternoon of August 16, in the historic Flatiron Building.

Ten brave contestants offered their best baked goods to hundreds of hungry Logos employees. In the end, three entrants were chosen as this year’s crème de la crème:
  1. David Ladiges: Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cheesecake Pie
  2. Bethany Olsen: Butterfinger Pie
  3. Caleb Hazel: Barnyard Berry Cheesecake

David was more than happy to share the recipe for his award winning cheesecake pie with us!

Guilt Free Chocolate-chip Strawberry Cheesecake

2 Chocolate Oreo Pie Crusts
1 1/2 lbs. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream (room temperature)
2 large eggs (room temperature)
1 tablespoons vanilla
12 ounces chocolate chips
1–2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
Strawberry filling (vary amount to taste)

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix softened cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and mix until smooth again. Add sour cream and vanilla and mix until smooth once more. Add eggs and, yes, mix until smooth. Stir in 9 ounces of chocolate chips, reserving the remaining chips. Divide evenly into the pie crusts.
  2. Spread strawberry filling over the pie filling in an “S” shape and, using a knife, make shallow cuts in the filling to create a marbled effect mixing the topping into the filling. (Use about 2–5 tablespoons of filling per pie as desired). Reserve some strawberry filling for the topping.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50–60 minutes. When the center is nearly set (usually around 55 minutes) turning off the oven, open the oven door and leave the pies cooling for one hour.
  4. Remove pies to counter or wire rack to cool to room temperature before chilling in the refrigerator for 3—4 hours. After pies are chilled, spread a very thin layer of strawberry filling over the top of the pies. (Use about 1—2 tablespoons of filling per pie).
  5. Melt reserved chocolate chips and mix in whipping cream until smooth. Divide evenly over the pies and spread until tops of the pies are completely covered. Return pies to fridge to chill until ready to serve.
