Nov 21 – Teach Me Cursive

3:325 – Teach Me Cursive #faithbites #faithjourney cursive Setting Today my six year old asked me to teach her cursive. She has no other reason than she saw us do it and she wanted to learn it.

Oct 20 – Irrational Fears

3:295 – Irrational Fears #faithbites #faithjourney Irrational Setting Today I submitted the second draft of my dissertation. I immediately felt fear. Fear that my advisor would tear it a part as she did back when I submitted the first drafts of my general and special field literature reviews. The thing is, it’s an irrational fear.

March 20 – Into The Unknown

3:80 – Into the Unkown #faithbites #faithjourney #COVID19 Unknown We are marching Into the Unknown. (And No, I’m not talking about Elsa’s big number in Frozen 2).

Oct 30 – Communion – The Law And The Doctrine

2:303 – The Law And The Doctrine #faithbites #faithjourney Doctrine Before we start, I want to apologize if this offends anyone. This isn’t meant to do that but rather to open a dialogue of searching, questioning, and growing in faith. These also are my thoughts and don’t reflect the belief of my denomination or church. In many #faithbites, we have […]

June 24 – Encounters With Christ

2:174 – Encounters With Christ #faithbites #faithjourney encounters I know this is a shocker, but I like to question and learn as much as I can about as much as I can.

May 1 – You Don’t Have To Intervene Every Time

2:121 – You Don’t Have To Intervene Every Time #faithbites #faithjourney intervene You may remember that one if my Lenten promises was to give up commenting on political posts and try to change people’s minds.
