How to Study the Bible On Your Own

Over the years, my faith has grown and it’s become something that I hold very close to my heart. While I’m not always able to actually attend church, I try to crack open the bible and dive deep into studying the Word every day. It’s personally something that keeps me grounded, calm and focused on my future – especially when things get rough. In the past, I had been a part of an incredible bible study group and I loved it! We met weekly to talk about Sunday’s sermon, we did bible studies together, watched biblical movies and had lots of potlucks (one of my favorite parts, while we’re being honest! 😉) I have also been a part of a bible study at work, which was the biggest blessing. Myself, my boss and two of my coworkers met at lunch to cover bible studies. It was so heart-warming to be able to share my faith in the workplace, and that’s something I’ll always cherish. I’ve also had bible studies with friends, and it’s been the …

Trusting His Timing When You’re Impatient

I’m impatient. I’m the type of person who wants results, wants to get things done, and I don’t like wasting time or waiting around for things to happen. And I certainly don’t like waiting on other people to do something for me. The kicker? Christianity tells us to trust in God’s timing. So, this led to me to share this today.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. (Ecclesiastes 3:1) But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a …

My Faith Journey

I’ve been wanting to somehow incorporate my faith into this blog for a long time now. I touch on it here and there and I occasionally throw a few verses on Twitter now and again, but I want to go more in depth. So I thought: Why not add a section to my blog dedicated entirely to my faith? There’s so much I want to discuss and talk about and offer advice on, but I figured I should start with a little backstory on my journey through faith. So that’s exactly what this is! I was raised in a Christian home. God was mentioned. There was a cross on the wall. We went to church on the big days (Christmas, Easter, etc). I attended a religious school. But growing up, I never felt a true connection to God and faith. It was always there, but it wasn’t really there. When I went off to college, that’s when my faith really started to slip. And no, it wasn’t because of college life, parties, boys, staying up late, …
