Sally Ivaska is the wife of David, mother of four sons, and proud grandmother of Zadie Marie. She has a master of arts in teaching from the University of Wisconsin and a master’s in linguistics from Northeastern Illinois University. Her passions — small group Bible study and all things cross-cultural — have taken many forms over the years: hosting international students, coordinating small groups for her church, serving as the International Student Advisor at North Park University, and training African students to study Scripture inductively and write their own discussion materials. Sally is never far from a book or a friend and enjoys life most when her “plate is full.”
The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, and is joyfully concluded on Easter Sunday. With six weeks of Lenten devotions, Sally Ivaska encourages us to use this time to draw close to God through Bible reading, meditation, and prayer.
