I am preparing to share with you my 2015 teaching calendar and I am blessed to tell you that it is 99% full and it is a doozie! (due-zee) Between traveling and being a wife and mom of boys, it is going to be a very creative, HOPE filled, crazy busy year and I need a little something to help me get through it (beside prayer,sleep and food)
I have a need ..
- for a daily calendar
- for a place to track my physical movement (on paper, not on a microchip)
- for a view of the month to come and a way to look back at where I have been and what I have learned along the way
- a place to write about my big dreams and then to be able to watch how they unfold the way God has planned them
- one place to hold all of my prayer requests so that I can look back to see how God is working in all of our lives
- for somewhere to note some of the wonderful, crazy, random moments of my everyday life of being a daughter, mom of boys, wife, friend, oh and a watertruck co-owner (story to come)
- a place to tape reminders of trust, love, faith and hope so that I can read them over and over and over...and then over again.
- a place to remind, record, reflect and document my faith when a 2” margin isn’t enough space
I have a need for it to all be in one place and a need to be able to take it with me whether I am driving a few miles down the street or if I am flying to the other side of the country or world.
I want a place to record my life, my dreams, my prayers, my moments. A place to document my faith sometimes monthly, often times weekly possibly even daily and I want you to come with me so that you can do the same.
So here is the official unofficial announcement and the secret code is 52-12-15.
Just kidding, there is not secret code. It really means 52 weeks, 12 months in 2015
and it is called
My intention is to run it in conjunction with all of my lovely lady friends over at The Documented Life Project and Shanna at Illustrated Faith/The Bible Journaling Community and here is one of the most IMPORTANT PARTS...
We are working on our separate creative journeys TOGETHER. Our relationships, our dreams, goals and intentions are very authentic and transparent. We are working together for the good.
We are not competing against each other, we are complimenting each other.
I know, right !?!?
I honestly believe we are all being used as examples for good. Examples of how we can highlight, promote, inspire and encourage each other.
Now, isnt that a breath of fresh air !?! (okay, you can call us super hero's if you want)
okay, so back to Documented Faith.
Guess how much?
It is important to me that everyone join in and work together and that it is free.
All you have to do is register so that I know your email so I can send you a Monthly focus word and a weekly verse or quote to prompt you. I will be blogging once a week so that you can see what I am doing and what I am using. I will be using a 2015 Moleskin 12 Month Calendar and may I suggest that you do too? Not necessary, totally optional.
And that is it.
IF you have not received a "confirmation email" after you sent your initial registration, please do not re-enter your information 3 or 4 times. Simply email me with your name and email address and I will check manually. 9 times out of 10 it is already in the CC system and the confirmation email just got lost somewhere between here and there.
Do You Want To Register?
IF you have not registered for Documented Faith and want to join in on this year long journey, please register here. There is no cost to this and I am only requesting your email and name so that I can get you set up on my list to send weekly and monthly emails.

YES, there is a group forming now and all you have to do is go here:
or cut and paste this into your browser:
It is a "closed" group simply to keep out spammers. Just request to join and you will be added in. PLEASE share this with your friends, too! Everyone is welcome. Remember, it is NOT about a religion, it is about a relationship.
Where did you get your Moleskine Journal?
Last year I bought mine at Staples but I did not have luck at my local Staples this year. You can order one here BUT please remember, you can use any planner you would like.
If you have any questions about this, please email me at email@example.com with Documented Faith 2015 in the subject line and/or leave a comment here.
2015 is going to be a heck of a year!
Q: I am a Buddhist. Would it be appropriate for me?
A: Yes Layla..YOU are included and everyone is welcome. This is about a relationship not a religion and you can take what I give you and apply it to your life the way you choose to. Thanks for asking and welcome (I hope!)
Q: Near the bottom of this post it says "Here are some of the links to my favorites:" but there doesn't appear to be any links?
A: I am part of the Amazon Affliliate Program and have listed a few of my favorite things above. All you have to do is click on the item/pictureof item to be taken to the page. You do not have to purchase from Amazon. You can use any planner/journal you wish! Here is the link to the 2015 Moleskine I am using.
