I am following this version here. I started 2/1 and thought I would share some of my faithart that I am creating in addition to the scripture writing. It is giving me the opportunity to do Bible Journaling for each day. I... Continue reading

I haven't blogged in a few weeks- wow, I have spent more time in journaling and being creative and will try to catch my readers up to what I have been studying and creating!

I just love teaching others to love God and create faithart! On Sunday after church 4 of my friends come to my studio and we get to create faithart each week! It is so refreshing to share my faith with others and to teach each other techniques. It is a small group built around faithart. We encourage and pray for each other. The techniques for the first "I am statement" by Shonna and I are... Continue reading

Each Friday there is a post at His Kingdom Come with a devotion on one week and a creative prompt on the other week. Friday 1/15 was the devotion written by Tonya Andrews about John 15:16 "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that remains, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you." I understand intellectually that I... Continue reading

Peace is my word so I spent more time doing "research" about peace, the definitions, thoughts, verses and how I can live it. I am loving my new planner/journal!! It is easy to work in, simple to add pages of all sizes and to create faithart and then punch it and insert it into my planner. On Saturday Susan Hiles, one of the HKC Bible Journaling leaders, created a periscope/and YouTube video for the first... Continue reading

I am so excited to share with you how I am approaching 2016! Last year I created a Take Me Deeper Art Journal, a Logos365 journal and a variety of other books. I realized that I wasn't really journaling, but just creating art and felt disjointed. I didn't keep up with my Logos365 journal and wanted to ensure that I can do all that I want but not feel overwhelmed or pressured or the worst... Continue reading

After seeing so many freebies on the internet about "one little word", "my one word"," unleashing your inner creativity" and others I felt prompted by God to share His version of seeking a word to live by. Grab a cup of coffee and get comfortable for a 17 min video. I have lived logos365 for over 8 years. I have created a new student worksheet and a returning worksheet and 12 months of prompts to...

Our Ambassador Kathy Shaull is the author today and she did a great job of pointing out some details of the song and story that I wasn't aware of. Thanks Kathy! God always has a plan. BE ALERT to His invitation. God's invitation may not make sense to our human understanding. BE AVAILABLE ANYWAY. God's invitation is for all to come and worship. BE ADORE-ABLE. I wanted to keep those notes with the song words... Continue reading

The Messiah coming as a baby was not what anyone 2000 years ago was hoping for. They wanted a warrior, a King, to rescue them from their slavery and persecution. When the Magi saw the baby they "bowed down and worshiped him." Even though he was a baby, they still knew in their hearts that Jesus was the son of God come to save us! Simple faithart, using a Christmas card, stamps and embossing. Let... Continue reading

December 20 is the 4th Sunday of Advent and this week is all about Peace. I love what Christina Nelson wrote for the devotional! "Peace on earth. Inner peace. World peace. The peace of God which passeth all understanding. From the prophecy of Isaiah 9, through Psalms to Revelation, the bible references God’s peace. The peace so sought by man. Paul (Ephesians 2:13-18) references the prophecy of the One called the Prince of Peace in... Continue reading

Bernice Hopper did a great job at focusing on the point of this song! "In today’s featured song we look at what the author imagines Joseph’s response to Mary’s pregnancy might have been. Joseph questions ‘Why me?’ ‘Why her?’ ‘Why a baby born in a stable?’ The song asks us to look at the birth of Jesus and to ask questions. Often we read the Bible version and move quickly on. Today read the verses... Continue reading

One of my favoirit Christmas songs ever. Breath of Heaven by Amy Grant. Staci Lys Dunn Silva is our author and I just loved her focus of this song. "Sometimes when I listen to this song I start to cry. I think it’s because of the simplicity of it and the way that Mary addresses God, “Breath of Heaven”. She was just a young girl when an unexpected visitor showed up and shared a message... Continue reading

Listen to the familiar song with new ears! Bernice Hopper is the author today. "Do you find that you can read a novel, or hear a song or study your Bible over and over and then one time you hear or see something different that you are sure wasn’t there before? That’s what happened when I looked at this song. Mind you I think the words ARE slightly different from the one I know for... Continue reading

Immanuel by Teresa Arsenault "Christmas is a time for joy, but it is also a time for sorrow. If you are in a time of rejoicing, the message of Christmas is for you. If you are in a time of sorrow, the message of Christmas is most especially for you. This time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. Look for His Light and let it flood over you. Even in the midst... Continue reading
