Why Journal?

My last post was in May of 2017, so it feels good to write again. I hope it encourages you. This is sort of an extension of my last post on the importance of spiritual disciplines. I know journaling doesn't seem like a spiritual discipline, and it's by no means in the Bible nor does it … Continue reading Why Journal?


Means to the Great End

I am probably not alone when I say that if I don’t feel like reading my Bible or praying, I tend to avoid it.
