2 Timothy 3:15 from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

The above is referring to Timothy, a companion and pupil of Paul’s. It is interesting that Timothy did not have what we might think of as a traditional upbringing. In Acts 16:3 we are told “Paul wanted to take him along on the journey, so he circumcised him because of the Jews who lived in that area, for they all knew that his father was a Greek.” Earlier in 2 Timothy Paul writes, “I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.” It looks like Paul had some godly women in his life who pointed him towards the scriptures even though his Dad was not inclined to do so. Timothy is mentioned along with Paul in the opening of several letters that are now part of the Bible. He was nurtured in the Scriptures and actually got to contribute to the Scriptures. What have you been nurtures towards? To what are you contributing?
