7 Faith Habits

Hello everyone! You've hopefully read about my health habits that I've added this year. If not I'll link it here. But, something has been tugging at me a long time, and that's my faith habits. I've been a Christian for all of my life. I cannot remember not being in church, knowing hymns, and being able to know some Bible verses. But I wanted more, and I still do.



“I am the vine, and you are the branches. If any remain in me and I remain in them, they produce much fruit. But without me, they can do nothing." - John 15:5

My faith is growing every day this year! Trust me, between becoming brave and having faith has big as mustard seed I have felt God.


Write the Word 

Let's start with Cultivate What Matter's epic product. They have several Write the Word journals on different topics of faith. I started my journey with the gratitude one, because so many people say that the more you are grateful the less negative that you are. Now, this is very simple; you are given a verse or a few verses and you write it out in your own handwriting. There is a spot for what you are grateful for that day, and the back of the page where you write the verse is a page where you can write whatever, plus a word of the day! Now, I do not do mine every day. I do mine on Wednesday for #WritetheWordWednesday and I do it when I most need it. There is also a kid option!

Prayer Bowl 

This was a product that I had seen in the middle of my Tea Time magazine. They were advertising a handpainted bowl. While that is nice to have and I'll probably paint my own bowls in the future I have started out with the slips of paper in a plastic bag. So, I have a prayer "bowl" at work and at home. The work one is strictly for my coworkers, the company, and the company situations. It turned out to be a hit at work when people found out what I was doing that there are six of us praying in our company for each other and the company. My bowl at home is a little more tricky with prayers on the slips of papers. I tried doing the whole pray something each day, but that got tricky. So, I've gone to weekly prayers.

Devotional

I have had several devotionals over the years. I have a few lined up for the rest of the year. The one I am doing right now is Annie F. Downs' 100 Days to Brave. My best friend and I are loving this devotional, especially when it gut punches us. It makes it raw for us which is what a devotional should do! Are there devotionals that you have finished that you recommend?


Church & Serve

This was the biggest thing on my list. To find a church, and actually participate in that church. The Church of the Highlands was a huge answered prayer for me. The church is huge, with locations all over the state of Alabama. The Tuscaloosa campus is wonderful and we love it as a family. There is something for every age stage in our house. Plus, we love that this is a church that really gets out into the community. Trust me, I have been to a church that was too worried about pleasing the church council with a nice building instead of reaching the community. And it makes you sit back and wonder what kind of church you are attending.

Bible Study

There is one that I really miss with my best friend is doing an in-depth Bible study. I cannot wait until we do the next ones. We have to make a list of the Bible studies we want to do. I cannot wait to get a group of friends around a table filled with snacks, drinks, highlighters, commentaries, and have a huge filled discussion about God. I crave that right now.

Christian books

While I love romance and magical books, I do need a good reminder of God in nonfiction and fiction. And, I have been embracing different books this year. Lara Casey's books are some great starting points to Christian nonfiction. I hope to continue reading some Christian books. I'm totally up for suggestions!

Worship Playlist

This one is a huge hit with me lately. I love the worship songs at church, but I also love some good ole regular Christian music as well. And this music has really helped me on some days. I have linked my own faith playlist that is continuously updated.

Please let me know what else would you do for a closer relationship with God? What faith habits do you have?

2018 Summer Haul - Part 2

Shopping for the Summer

Shopping spree? I haven't been done a huge shopping spree in a long time. I have been dealing with somethings personally. But this shopping spree is my start over. I will not be in Alabama much this summer. I'm excited about this transition. Now I didn't purchase all of this on my own. I have supportive friends, family and lot of leftover gift cards through the years that I'm putting to good use now!

The last of the grills are heating up, the chlorine smell is clinging to our skin, and the freckles from the sun show well on our bodies. It's almost September 1st!
