bible journaling

i’ve written about my faith journey a little bit over the years.

in 2013 i was trying to define mine and learning how to pray.

in 2014 and 2015, i lost it. i was hurt and stuggling to find anything to hold onto. i’m not sure i wrote anything about faith, because it just wasn’t there. i read my daily word everyday, but i just couldn’t find connection.

this year, i finally figured out how to be still, let go, and look for signs.

it hasn’t been easy, but i’m learning.

i’ve enjoyed bible studies and podcasts, but i have found something that i absolutely love that connects me to faith.

    Wonderful use of several of your gifts… hope it helps. for some reason, this made me think of a former fourth-grade motto: “No one knows everything. Everyone knows something. So none of us is as smart as all of us.” Good reason for people to reach out to each other, however they choose to do it. Love you.
