|beautiful Bible reading photo by: the invisible friend|
I want to share some tools that have helped me because I think it's so important to share and uplift one another.
|this is the journal i use|
*Bible reading that makes sense. Find a version that is readable to you. It's no good if you can't understand. A lot of people prefer the King James Version [KJV or NKJV]. While I love poetry and Shakespeare, I need to get straight forward language when in a Bible study. So I do both the New International Version [NIV] and The Message Remixx Bible.
*This book: Confessions of a Good Christian Girl. It's truly amazing. [And it also comes in Confessions of a Good Christian Guy.]
|boy meets girl|
*If you're SINGLE: Boy Meets Girl: Say Hello to Courtship. I would say this was my GUIDEBOOK for before I was married. WHAT A JEM of a book. Seriously. He had one before that called, I Kissed Dating Goodbye...but I think the Boy Meets Girl one was more HOPEFUL haha!
*A great devotional or guided journal for self exploration and discussion. I really enjoy this one called: Princess Unaware: Finding the Fabulous in Everday.
*Finally, and most importantly is: DON'T BE ASHAMED. I used to be so scared of being an open Christian. Feared that I would be made fun of, mocked, or people would think I'm boring now. I'm not boring. I haven't been mocked, but it CAN happen. I am not ashamed. NOT ASHAMED.
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes
