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.

bible journaling.
