Hello May (almost) and hello to a new word to focus on.
If you are new to Documented Faith, then welcome. If you are here for the 19th week or maybe even the 71st week (2015 + 19) then welcome back and way to go. Hey if you are here for the 3rd week, 9th week or really whatever, I am just glad you are here. I am pretty sure that God will be glad, too. Every once in a while I just go over the why, what and how just to check in with all of you and really, I need the reminder as well. It is very easy to get off track, become unfocused and just plain ol' forget, so reminders are always good.
Q: What is Documented Faith?
A: It is a creative way to record, illustrate, document, journal and doodle the everyday moments, Bible verses, inspirational quotes and a growing relationship with Jesus and with others in a planner, binder, art journal, notebook, on a post it note or inside and outside the margins of a journaling Bible.
Q: Why Document My Faith?
A: To develop the habit of spending time reflecting, reading, worshipping, learning and memorizing God’s word in a creative way.
Q: How Do I Start?
A: All you need to do is register your name and email here so that you receive a weekly email. You can follow along each month with a specific focus word and weekly with a verse that coordinates with that word. What and how you create is totally up to you. Whether you journal, memorize, reflect, create and/or apply the verse and word into your everyday life, the most important thing is that you are in the word.
Weekly emails will have links to this blog as well as to the Documented Faith page where each week I post the verse and a link to the download. This week happens to have a video where I go through a little of my binder and show you how adding simple lines with a pen can change the look of your binder pages. Note: please remember that you can do what you want with what you have, you do not have to go out and purchase anything specific. I use my Documented Faith Binder by ADORNit but I also use a few other journals, binders and planners. I do something creative each day in at least one of them and rarely, if ever in every single one every day. Keep it as simple as you want.
So now, if you choose, you can register for the emails here, check out the Documented Faith 2016 page here and if interested, scroll through what we did in 2015 here. Again, I am so glad you are here and I encourage you to invite your friends to join in as well.
