CULTIVATE YOUR FAITH FREE E-BOOK + HUGE GIVEAWAY!

Share

Our marriage felt impossible to repair, so I tried fixing everything else. I would wake each morning thinking, What can I do, eat, or buy that will make me feel happy today?

– In the quest for a more organized life, I bought new pretty containers, planners, and pens.
– I loaded my shelves with books promising a formula for quick-fix happiness.
– Maybe getting fit would solve everything, so I purchased new running shoes and a gym membership.
– Perhaps more creativity would be the thing that brought me joy, so I got journals and craft supplies.
– When I felt emotionally drained, I reached to comfort food, social media, and shopping.
– I acquired new cookbooks, clothes, subscriptions, throw pillows, and plants.

Those poor plants. I’ve killed a lot of plants in my life.

But the most life-changing things in life aren’t things.

  47. Jaime on August 17, 2016 at 1:47 pm

    One of my favorite resources is the chronological Bible and Wendy Pope’s Read Through the Word daily Bible study program. Reading the Bible chronologically makes a WORLD of difference in my understanding of God and the events of the Bible, and that helps me stay focused and interested. 🙂

  48. Stacy on August 17, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    Feeling really lost lately, and it occurred to me this morning that I really needed to turn to prayer. I’ve been trying to do too much on my own. Then this shows up on my blog feed! Perfect timing, I’ll definitely be reading the e-book. Thank you Lara!

  49. Jessica Johnson on August 17, 2016 at 2:09 pm

    I messaged my sister in law and told her to check you out and shared your webinar with her as well ♥️

  71. Kristyn on August 17, 2016 at 4:26 pm

    I LOVED small group time in youth group and am looking for an adult group in Illinois, because I had a group when I was in Texas that was great too. I strongly encourage finding a small group to cultivate and grow in your faith!

  95. Stefanie Ortiz on August 17, 2016 at 6:13 pm

    This is an amazing giveaway! You are changing lives!

  96. Stefanie Ortiz on August 17, 2016 at 6:31 pm

    Your book “Make It Happen” is literally changing my life as I read the pages, like real time Jesus here. I bought the book months ago as a discounted bundle with the powersheets. I was so excited to dig in when I got it but for some reason I just never got around to reading it until now. (I didn’t know it but that was God saying “not yet, this will mean more to you later”. His timing is perfect!) I had plenty of time to read it but for some reason God was saying wait until you go on vacation with your boyfriend and his family to begin reading it. Oh boy was that perfect timing! God knows when we are ready to receive and he waits to give. It’s like when you have amazing news to tell someone or a special gift for them, but if you wake them up in the middle of the night when they are exhausted and cranky and try to give it to them, they probably won’t react the way you want them to…they would be much more excited if you waited until a better time. I open this book and I immediately feel God’s presence and guidance. I am easily distracted and need total peace and quiet to focus but there are times when I can’t put the book down no matter what’s going on around me (that’s God saying “Stefanie you need this more than anything right now”). And then all of a sudden I can’t turn the page and no matter how much I want to keep reading I seem to hit a wall and that is God saying “Okay let’s put this into action and make some things happen”. I am in awe. You wrote this book for me! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart and thank you Jesus for Lara Casey! Here is not a single page of my book that doesn’t have something circled, underlined, or arrows everywhere! What you preach about “making a mess” has truly helped me engage with this book.

    • Lara on August 18, 2016 at 10:28 am

      I am encouraged to hear this. Praise God for how He uses our imperfect stories to help others know Him!

  97. Valeria on August 17, 2016 at 6:37 pm

    Thank you for all you tips. Thank you for the guidance to start my relationship with God! Now I can start my journey into cultivating my faith with God. <3

  98. JC on August 17, 2016 at 6:41 pm

    I love this! So fun. Thanks for fun giveaways! 🙂

  99. Lisa Burger on August 17, 2016 at 6:42 pm

    ODB, shereadstruth and life lived beautifully studies! Thanks for your resource too!

  100. Amanda on August 17, 2016 at 6:42 pm

    I love this Lara! As someone who has really started my faith journey on my own, it’s often hard to find where to start and where to seek the best resources to get you going and to help you understand the word. You are amazing for sharing this! Thank you!

  101. Amanda on August 17, 2016 at 6:47 pm

    This looks like a great round up of items! I would be excited by any one piece by itself 🙂

  102. Amanda on August 17, 2016 at 6:48 pm

    Right now my favorite resource to cultivate my faith is my School for Lay Ministry classes offered through my church. It is a great program I think everyone in my state should take advantage of.

  103. Lisa Burger on August 17, 2016 at 6:49 pm

    Great idea: encourage someone! I texted my neighbor/friend I’m thankful for her!

  104. Katie Spencer on August 17, 2016 at 6:56 pm

  105. Rebecca MacPherson on August 17, 2016 at 7:10 pm

    I am so looking forward to listening to the replay on this!

  106. Amanda Bixler on August 17, 2016 at 7:28 pm

    My most favorite “resource” for cultivating my faith? Consistency. This means waking up every morning, pouring my cup of coffee, and curling up with my Bible, journal, and whatever nonfiction Christian book I’m reading at the moment. And while it doesn’t mean there isn’t grace for missing a day, it does mean that there is fruit in obedience, fruit in showing up even when don’t feel like it, fruit in trusting that God’s word truly never does return void.

    • Lara on August 18, 2016 at 10:27 am

      Yes, this is so good. Fruit for obedience. Love your thoughts!

  107. Rachel Friedrichs on August 17, 2016 at 7:30 pm

    Thank you so much for this beautiful webinar and the encouragement to get into the word. There is nothing more important than a trusting relationship with God. Getting into the word more honestly and consistently is exactly the way to grow that relationship. Thank you!

  121. Kelsey on August 17, 2016 at 10:16 pm

    Thank you Lara! Really wanting the Write The Word Journal now 🙂

  122. Katy on August 17, 2016 at 11:00 pm

    My favorite resource to cultivate my faith is my journal! I love being able to write it down and remember what God has done and is doing.

  123. Katy on August 17, 2016 at 11:01 pm

    I encouraged my husband by writing in our journal that we hide for each other!

    • Lara on August 18, 2016 at 10:26 am

      This is such a great idea!

  124. Amy on August 17, 2016 at 11:16 pm

    I missed you live but listened later. Thank you so much for pouring into us. Sometimes we need to go back to the basics of God and how to reach Him. We make it so hard sometimes and let life overwhelm us. I appreciate your open honesty and passion. Christ is evident through your life and family. Bless you.

    • Lara on August 18, 2016 at 10:26 am

      I am grateful it encouraged you! There’s so much more I could have shared, but I’m so glad it was helpful.

  125. Elle on August 17, 2016 at 11:18 pm

  132. Rachelle on August 18, 2016 at 8:03 am

    My husband and I listened to you share last night while we were lying in bed. We have been struggling through the loss of an adoption through foster care and infertility (for years). It has really taken a toll on our marriage. Listening to you humbly share was a HUGE blessing! Thank you! 🙂

  133. Danielle on August 18, 2016 at 9:20 am

    Thank you so much for the encouragement. It’s been much needed during the current season of life I’m going through.

  136. Abby on August 18, 2016 at 10:08 am

    Thank you for your words. I think there was something for everyone in your message–whether starting out in faith, or in need of renewal!

  137. Kaysie Strickland on August 18, 2016 at 10:29 am

    Your words have left me desiring more of Jesus. Thank you…

    • Lara on August 18, 2016 at 10:30 am

      Amen, Lord. I am grateful you feel that way!

  138. Ashley on August 18, 2016 at 10:34 am

    Spending time in the temple is what helps me cultivate faith!

  139. india on August 18, 2016 at 10:36 am

    Wow, I would love to win this prize pack! I’m most excited about Mere Christianity, the Write the Word Journal and the NIV Bible. I’m in need of a new, physical Bible so I can write in it (I currently use my YouVersion app) and I’ve heard wonderful things about Mere Christianity! Thanks for this giveaway, Lara! <3

  140. Veronica on August 18, 2016 at 11:18 am

    Thanks Lara for this great giveaway! One thing that helps me cultivate my faith is regular times of worship and good friends that hold me accountable.

  141. Veronica on August 18, 2016 at 11:19 am

    I also just sent a note of encouragement to my good friend Rachel

  142. Heidi on August 18, 2016 at 11:54 am

    Hi Lara! I can’t wait to sit down and listen to your talk on growing your faith! I had a meeting at work during the live event….so bummed

  143. Ronja on August 18, 2016 at 12:06 pm

    Thank you so so much for this Lara <3 I just watched the webinar and it was simply amazing <3 You answered the money questions of mine and opened up even more. While I do feel overwhelmed right now (very), I also feel a sense of calm and security, which can only have come from your words, and God. I am all so new to this, but this feeling right now? Oh it is good! Or better, it is God.
    So thank you Lara, from all of my heart <3
    xx Ronja

    • Lara on August 18, 2016 at 2:12 pm

  149. Mirelis Heal on August 18, 2016 at 1:35 pm

    I couldn’t finish everything because I was at work, but I’m thrilled this was recorded and I can sit down, coffee in hand, Bible on my lap and ready to write and reflect. Thank you for your giving heart, to encourage others to seek God first.

  150. Kimberly Crowe on August 18, 2016 at 1:36 pm

    My sister is working her first day at a new job. I texted her , asked her about her day and encouraged her to look for God in her day!

  151. Jennifer on August 18, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    This is exactly the jumpstart I need right now – I’m feeling “stuck” and overwhelmed with how to get UNstuck. Seeing these tools and encouragement gives me hope in knowing I’m not alone and there is light on the other side.

  152. Shannon on August 18, 2016 at 2:07 pm

    Thankful for you and your team and your relentless chasing of the Lord.

  153. Deneen on August 18, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    The webinar was awesome. It came from such a pure place and it was so inspiring and encouraging. I have always struggled trying to “cultivate my faith”.. It was a beautiful message. I will definitely apply your tips! Thanks so much Lara! May God continue to bless you as you grow in Him.

  154. Melinda Williams on August 18, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    I love the Jesus Storybook Bible! I also love Kristin Schmucker’s prayer journal.

  155. Allison on August 18, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    I recently started reading the MSG translation of the Bible and it makes it so much more relatable! I would recommend that to anyone who is just getting started in the Word. Thanks Lara for always being open to helping others.

  156. Sabrina on August 18, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    Fun giveaway!

  157. Amanda on August 18, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    I am so thankful that the webinar was available after the fact as I had a doctor’s appointment during! I am just starting to get back into regular bible reading and amazed at what I’m learning even in the short time I’ve been trying to cultivate the habit!

    • Lara on August 18, 2016 at 4:55 pm

      Love you, friend.

  160. amber on August 18, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    i am so thankful for you, lara! i have blocked out time tonight to watch the replay. that’s one thing my powersheets have taught me: to block out time for the things that matter; the things the fuel my soul; the things that [imperfectly but progressively] draw me closer to the Lord. i’m excited to watch and learn from the cultivating faith webinar!

    • Lara on August 18, 2016 at 4:54 pm

      Amber, that is wonderful to hear! I am proud of you for choosing what matters!

  161. Joy on August 18, 2016 at 4:28 pm

    Love this blog entry. I started watching the webinar but stopped due to too many distractions around me. I will finish it later tonight when I am not babysitting. I am adding all the resources to my list of books to read.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful and encouraging webinar! You’ve found some of my favorite books here, so I’m excited to track down the ones I haven’t yet read!

  169. Meghann Richardson on August 18, 2016 at 5:34 pm

    I love Bibles that leave space to journal. So many thoughts run through my mind when reading the Word, sometimes, I need to explain why a verse resonates with me. I would love a write the word journal!

  170. Beth on August 18, 2016 at 5:50 pm

    WOW this looks like a great collection of books. It looks like the best of the best!

  171. Susie Cantrell on August 18, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    Hi Lara!
    Thank You for sharing your enCouraging HeartWords plus, all these wonderful resources.
    It’s hard to choose a favorite after my Bibles; however, I think Reading Books by Christian Authors & Journaling, both Word & Art, has a great impact on Cultivating my Faith.
    Blessings. Have a JOYfull Day! {HUGs} Love Ya! 🙂

  172. Amanda L on August 18, 2016 at 6:16 pm

    I love these resources!

  173. Toria on August 18, 2016 at 6:26 pm

    Favorite resource to cultivate my faith- writing out my prayers in my journal! Keeps me intentional and my mind focused instead of wandering off on bunny trails. I can look back and see how much I’ve grown, and how faithful God is in answering!

  174. Sandee on August 18, 2016 at 6:26 pm

    I was happy to be able to encourage an online associate today who is often sad. It lifted my spirits to know I was lifting hers!

  175. Toria on August 18, 2016 at 6:29 pm

    As I go about my day and different friends come to my mind, I try to stop and send them a quick text to let them know that they are loved and that I’m praying for them right at that moment!

  176. Emily on August 18, 2016 at 6:46 pm

    Thank you so very much for being transparent about your faith and struggles! It has built a community of great hope and grace.

  177. Emily on August 18, 2016 at 6:47 pm

    I encouraged my mom today and sent big hugs her way!

  178. Judy on August 18, 2016 at 7:09 pm

    Messaging a friend some encouragement!!

  179. Judy on August 18, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    My favorite resource right now is a blank journal. After journaling on my computer for years, I had gotten out of the habit. Physically writing down my prayers, quotes from the Bible and my readings has been encouraging and life-giving.

  180. Shi on August 18, 2016 at 7:28 pm

    This is amazing! Love the resources for faith building!

  181. Catherine on August 18, 2016 at 7:32 pm

    Great webinar yesterday! Lara, your words brought up some old hurts I thought I had completely let go, but clearly there is more work to do. Embracing the mess…

    • Lara on August 19, 2016 at 9:37 am

      I am so glad it encouraged you, Catherine!

  182. Amy on August 18, 2016 at 7:48 pm

    The webinar was just what I needed, Lara. I can’t wait to try out a WTW journal!!

  183. Julie B on August 18, 2016 at 7:51 pm

    I would love to win! I would like to read Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely . Love Lysa!

  184. Rachael on August 18, 2016 at 8:10 pm

    My favourite resource at the moment is a journal where I write out verses from the bible that are God’s promises, and His attributes. I go back and read through them to remind myself when I forget and get wrapped up in my circumstances.

  185. Stephanie A on August 18, 2016 at 8:12 pm

    Lara, you encourage me every time I see you on Instagram, and every time I click over to this blog. I hope you realize the amazing impact you are having. Thank you for your real, honest, fresh take on cultivating faith. You are an amazing woman and your guidance is helping me become a better encourager.

    • Lara on August 19, 2016 at 9:37 am

      I appreciate that encouragement. Thank you—I’m grateful you’ve been encouraged!

  186. Ashley on August 18, 2016 at 8:20 pm

    Couldn’t have been a better time for you all to create this wonderful webinar. Going through some rough patches and feeling down lately, I sure needed to encouragement and reminder that God and my faith will bring me through anything!! <3

  187. Ashley on August 18, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    I have just given my friend a copy of the book Wild and Free and also sent her a link to the Write the Word journals!

    • Lara on August 19, 2016 at 9:36 am

      I love Wild and Free too! : ) : ) : )

  188. Olena on August 18, 2016 at 8:41 pm

    I can’t wait to listen to the replay of this webinar! Thank you for sharing all of these resources – I will definitely put them on my list 🙂

  189. Ashley on August 18, 2016 at 8:50 pm

    My favorite resource has been BSF (Bible Study Fellowship). Having a group of ladies to be accountable to each week as well as great God centered discussion has grown my faith tremendously!

  190. Ashley on August 18, 2016 at 8:52 pm

    I have been praying with and encouraging a dear friend going through a very very difficult time in her marriage (including sharing your story and posts!).

  191. Nicole on August 18, 2016 at 10:05 pm

    When I first started getting personal about my faith, I read my Bible with a pad of sticky notes. When I had a question or thought about a passage, I would write it down on a sticky and put it right there with the passage. It helped me really think critically instead of just glaze over it all.
    Now that I’m a mom of two small children, the First 5 App is often the only way I get devotion time in. Sometimes I even read in the bathroom while waiting for the shower to heat up, or sitting in my car before going into work.

    • Lara on August 19, 2016 at 9:36 am

      I love this idea. Thank you for the great tip about using sticky notes! I may try that too…

  192. Deborah on August 18, 2016 at 10:32 pm

    Loved this webinar, thank you so much Lara! My favorite tip – #9: We become what we Behold. I will pay more attention to what I’m paying attention to!

  198. Jamesie on August 18, 2016 at 11:47 pm

    My favorite way to grow my faith: spend quality time with sisters in Christ, who also readily admit they don’t have it all together and just embrace their journey

  199. Amy on August 19, 2016 at 12:14 am

    This was the best webinar! Today I realized I have 177 pages of the Bible left to read. I am 18 months in reading the Bible! Thank you Lara! You are awesome!

    • Lara on August 19, 2016 at 9:35 am

      That is wonderful! I am encouraged by you!!

  200. Fiona on August 19, 2016 at 3:56 am

    I love the WTW journals to do when I take the ferry to work and also following Life lived beautifully on FB and their studies on FB as I can listen to them in the car or while getting ready in the morning.

  201. Rebecca on August 19, 2016 at 6:57 am

    In this season of lots of little and lots of crazy, I have put scripture all over my walls to remind me of the faithfulness

  202. Becca on August 19, 2016 at 10:45 am

    Lara you are such an encouragement; please know that! I am so encouraged by everything you share & know you are really just wanting the Lord to use you!

    What a great giveaway! I’ve tried to focus on encouraging my husband (who is a school counselor) as school started back this week – I love sneaking little notes into his lunch to hopefully brighten his day!

  206. Meghann on August 19, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    Loved this! I love IF:Equip and SheReadsTruth. I was so encouraged by Jess Connolly/NapTimeDiaries Advent study last year. I’m taking seminary classes and reading “Systematic Theology” – love learning about this from a more academic standpoint too.

    • Lara on August 19, 2016 at 2:03 pm

      Yes! The Advent study last year is also a favorite of mine. I still have it on my bookshelf to refer to. I loved all of the writing.

    Thank you for the light and uplift you bring to the world. You’re a beautiful soul!

  215. Sarah on August 19, 2016 at 7:09 pm

    I just finished an amazing Bible study for moms called “Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood.” Her insights were great, the lessons were short enough to get through in my limited quiet time, and the scripture was in context. Loved it!

    • Elizabeth on August 30, 2016 at 11:22 pm

      I’m going through the same book! Enjoying it.

  216. Kelcie on August 19, 2016 at 9:45 pm

    Loved the class! I encouraged someone by making a simple phone call to someone I knew needed to talk. It was fulfilling for both of us!

  217. Jessa on August 19, 2016 at 10:02 pm

    I find She Reads Truth to be a great way to dig into His Word!

  218. Priscila on August 20, 2016 at 6:27 am

Love that!

    Every time I am in a rut, I look forward to your wisdom because God always speaks to me through you. Thank you so much for everything!

    Last week I was defeated and sad, but after listening to your webinar and revisiting the Bible I actually feel refreshed even though I am still facing the same circumstances!

    Thanks again!

  228. Diane Taylor on August 22, 2016 at 8:54 am

    What a wonderful giveaway!!! :):):)

  229. Caitlin on August 22, 2016 at 10:32 am

    I never share for giveaways because I hate clogging my feed, but this is a giveaway that I am happy to share! This is not even for entries, etc, but I wanted to let you know that this is spreading His love. This giveaway is an easy way to say, “hey, I’ve been encouraged by these things and I think you might be too.” Thank you.

  230. Abigail on August 22, 2016 at 7:09 pm

    Thank you Lara! I just recently found your blog and resources and I love it! I encouraged my friend whose been struggling a lot lately.

  231. Amy Ivey on August 22, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    Lara, you are such a blessing! My latest resource has been reading a different Bible version than what I’m used to. This has helped me experience the Word in a new and fresh way. So blessed by it!

  232. Amy Ivey on August 22, 2016 at 8:36 pm

    FYI: The first entry “Bring Your Friends” appears to be broken…I tweeted, but it didn’t activate the entry. 🙂

    Lara – I love how transparent you continue to be about your marriage and faith journey, and I always appreciate your focus on grace in life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  237. Amber on August 23, 2016 at 3:27 pm

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Your words spoke to me today more than you will ever know. I struggle with many of the same things you shared. Trying to do it all. Trying to be the best business owner, wife, mom, daughter, friend and even home owner. I have been making big changes in my life to do better but sometimes it fees like a struggle to do my best for those who mean the most to me. Thank you for the reminder that I don’t need to fill my life full of things that don’t matter. What matters most to myself and my family is that we all have a relationship with God and that he is what matters most! Thank you for your putting your life story out there for us all to hear today and reminding us that we all deserve grace!

  238. Megan on August 24, 2016 at 3:06 pm

    I sent this out to my small group! Hope this encourages them as it did me!

  239. Sarah Anderson on August 24, 2016 at 6:27 pm

  240. Heather Crosby on August 24, 2016 at 8:34 pm

  243. Jessica McManus on August 26, 2016 at 9:43 am

    Thank you for encouraging others through your faith. This was a bright spot in a dark week.

  244. Josh on August 26, 2016 at 11:06 am

    Oh my, feel you so much on this! Since last November things have felt like a wilderness to us and we are still in it. Just feels like lots of walking around in circles with no full insight into which way is out. Was having a conversation with my mom about it the other day and she reminded me: God lead the Israelites into the wilderness, it wasn’t an accident that they got there but it was by His leading.
    Trying to do my best to rest in knowing that He knows what He is doing in us during this time in the wilderness.

  245. Jenn on August 26, 2016 at 11:40 am

    Love this! Thank you!

  246. Anna on August 26, 2016 at 1:57 pm

  255. Jenn P on August 28, 2016 at 9:16 pm

    I adore this and am so excited to dive into the e-book! I absolutely LOVE my Write the Word journals. They help me focus on the scripture, gratitude and reflection. It’s also really helpful to look back and see all that God is doing in my life. <3 This giveaway is fantastic and I have added all of the items to my personal wish list 🙂

  256. Jaclyn on August 29, 2016 at 10:28 am

    I love my write the word journals!

  257. Leah on August 29, 2016 at 11:17 am

    This is such an amazing giveaway! My favorite resources are my Write the Word journal, because for someone like me who has just started getting into the word, it lowers the intimidation barrier of having to completely understand scripture or have a deep interpretation of it, it allows you to soak in the word by writing it and then just openly journaling what is on our hearts. I love it! 🙂

  258. Sarah Braman on August 29, 2016 at 8:19 pm

    I feel like God has directly encouraged me through all the things you’ve shared. I have this feeling so grateful and almost overwhelming peace after reflecting on the truth you do such a good job of bringing to light. Thank you for putting things back into perspective!

  259. Sarah Braman on August 29, 2016 at 8:20 pm

    Also, it may seem silly, but I really found the app Pocket super helpful, because it gives me a quick way to access your blog. I’ve also been reading The Purpose Driven Life Book again, and I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of that.

  260. Victoria on August 30, 2016 at 7:37 am

    I am going to save these resources! I have been doing the write the word journal and I love it!

  261. Katie Jardieu on August 30, 2016 at 10:14 am

    These look like great books and resources! I’m excited to dive into some of these!

  262. Courtney Rohr on August 30, 2016 at 10:15 am

  263. Julia Canavan on August 30, 2016 at 10:15 am

    I am so excited about this giveaway! I can’t think of more excellent resources to help grow your faith!

  264. Kayla Jones on August 30, 2016 at 10:17 am

    I encouraged the young woman I mentor as she is going through a really rough time. Reminding her of her worth and just how much God loves her and has plans for her.

  265. Jordan on August 30, 2016 at 10:18 am

    Awesome giveaway! I love using SRT and Illustrated Faith in my daily walk. I also LOVE my Give Me Jesus journal from Life Lived Beautifully.

  267. Bess on August 30, 2016 at 10:20 am

    Love this so much! It was such a great tool for my small group

  268. Kelli on August 30, 2016 at 10:24 am

    Thank you for your refreshing honesty and desire to cultivate faith in others! I just text a friend who is going through some challenging life situations to reminder that God is bigger than her problems!

  269. Harriet L on August 30, 2016 at 10:24 am

    What an amazing giveaway! Thank you!

  270. Taryn Austgen on August 30, 2016 at 10:25 am

    Honestly, while different resources have come and go in my life, my favorite resource is my simple spiral bound notebook prayer journal. God and I have had many beautiful times with that notebook (well, different versions of it 😉 )

  271. Stacey on August 30, 2016 at 10:28 am

    where you were is where I am right now. I feel like my life is falling apart, and I don’t know how to fix it. I have just dug into the word, started praying more with and for
    Husband. We decided today that our family is going to start gratitude journals to keep us focused on so many of our blessings. I bought Make it Happen awhile ago, but just haven’t been able to concentrate to complete anything. So I am praying for consistency, and mental clarity to get me through this stage of life. Thank you so much for your honesty and transperency. You are such an inspiration!

  272. Jen D. on August 30, 2016 at 10:30 am

    There are so many great resources here! I would love to read Uninvited and my twins would adore the Storybook Bible. Not too mention that It Is Well with My Soul is a favorite of mine. I am also interested in trying out the Write the Word journals. I have several friends who copy scripture daily and find it to be very useful for centering their day and expanding their knowledge. Thank you for this chance to win!

  273. Lauren McHugh on August 30, 2016 at 10:31 am

  276. Suellen Rivera on August 30, 2016 at 10:32 am

    I love my write the word journals, I would give this set to my best friend if I win!!

  277. Nadiya on August 30, 2016 at 10:34 am

    Wow! 🙂 God bless you!!!

    My favorite resource would probably have to be the Bible itself, nothing better than the true word!

  278. Kim Alford on August 30, 2016 at 10:34 am

    I cultivate faith by Bible Reading/study & journal-praying!

  279. Lauren McHugh on August 30, 2016 at 10:37 am

    I actually wrote a blog post this morning for The Rising about all of my internet friends and how they encourage me to be me!

  280. Kim Alford on August 30, 2016 at 10:41 am

    What a lovely blog! Even if I don’t win your contest, I want you to know you have forever changed me. I know it sounds corny, but sometimes corny things are really true.
    You have given me that edge that I’ve lost over the pay few months. Life has been heavy and weary, but refocusing my life had brought back my joy. Thank-you for helping me too remember what is important!

  283. Ashley Curtis on August 30, 2016 at 10:44 am

    Love the Jesus storybook bible–reading that each night with my oldest son! We love kisses from Katie and Val Marie journals too :)) what a lovely giveaway 🙂

  288. Madelyn on August 30, 2016 at 10:52 am

    Thank you for sharing these awesome words, tools, scripture art, and more as a resource to help us as we walk daily with the Lord! I’m someone who stumbled into vocational ministry and am now a children/youth director who is learning a lot as I go, the most important lesson being that f I’m not drinking Living Water, burnout will happen — fast. A few of my favorite resources are the Blue Book (now on Amazon!) by Jim Branch, and the Storybook Bible Amazon videos, which have such beautiful animation of major Bible themes.

  289. Charley Hartsfield White on August 30, 2016 at 10:55 am

  302. Brooke on August 30, 2016 at 11:31 am

    I texted a friend who I graduated with in May. She went off to college the beginning of August, and I know it’s been hard in ways. I had seen a blog post someone wrote for college girls- mainly for those starting out- so I sent that, and she was very encouraged by it ❤️

  303. Paige on August 30, 2016 at 11:31 am

    This looks wonderful!

  311. April Emery on August 30, 2016 at 11:49 am

    • Lara on August 30, 2016 at 1:31 pm

      Thank you for the encouragement!

  318. Brooke Calcagno on August 30, 2016 at 12:20 pm

  323. Samantha Cordialini on August 30, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    This is so great! Lately I have been struggling to get into the Word and be intentional about my growth in a relation with God. I use the excuses that I’m “too busy” or even that I’m not good enough, which when reading that back, is heartbreaking. I am so encouraged by this and am excited to bear the fruits of what’s to come!

    • Lara on August 30, 2016 at 1:30 pm

      I am really encouraged by you sharing your heart. Sometimes when we feel these moments of heartbreak or facing where we are, we are ushering in beautiful change!

    My favorite resource is my Bible. Hands down. Nothing else compares.

  344. Lauren Cleveland on August 30, 2016 at 5:28 pm

    I love having Scripture and truth hanging around my home!

    I have finished reading Make It Happen and its by far my favorite book. Cried the first paragraph in and didn’t stop until about half way through. Read the book in 6 days. Just couldn’t put it down. I plan to read it again soon and share with everyone i know. The biggest thing and change I saw was when I actually answered all the questions. Truly life changing. Thank you Lara!!!

    I texted several friends today that I believe the Lord Kaye’s on my heart. They seemed very appreciative.

    I have really enjoyed using my Write the Word journal I treated myself to this Summer. It helps me stay consistent with getting in the Word.

    Thank you for your wonderful webinar! What a blessing it was! Thank you for sharing your story. Wow! Your giveaway is amazing! All of these resources would help me to cultivate my faith. I would love your Write the Word journal.

    Thanks for this giveaway! Right now as I’m stepping into a new leadership position I’m finding a lot of wisdom in reading about Moses in Exodus.

    I have been trying to start good habits related to daily prayer and studying my Bible, and a lot of these items are on my wishlist! I would also love to share them with my sister.

    I have been very stressed and overwhelmed lately. In times like these, Quiet Time helps to re-center me. I’m so grateful for the Write The Word Journals. I’ve been using them and they’re a real source of comfort and reassurance.

    Wow! What an incredible set of encouraging things and just in writing this comment now I am encouraged because 1 John 4:18 (at the bottom of the screen) has been on my heart for the past few days as i’ve been battling anxiety. One big way that I cultivate faith is in sitting down with a sweet friend and just recounting all the ways God has been good to us, fostering an attitude of gratitude which fights off feelings of discontentment and entitlement (which are very easy to fall into!) Thank you Lara for allowing Jesus to use you to encourage others, including myself! Thankful for you!

    My favorite resource to help cultivate my faith is my journaling Bible!

  357. Elise on August 31, 2016 at 8:58 am

    Texted my friend Emily a little encouragement 🙂

    I recently joined an Anglican church and have been loving the book of common prayer. The combination of prayer and Scripture for morning and evening, plus the idea that people have prayed these same prayers for years and years – very powerful.

  359. Crystal on August 31, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    Something that helps cultivate my faith is listening to specific Podcasts like: Influence Network, GodCentered Mom and Revive Our Hearts

  360. ASHLEE on August 31, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    I TEXTED A DEAR FRIEND TO ENCOURAGE HER TODAY, SHE IS HAVING A ROUGH TIME WITH HER SMALL GROUP. SENT HER SOME SCRIPTURES!

  361. YURIS on August 31, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    I love using prayer journals to keep track of my prayer topics and answered prayers! And of course, my study bible is essential to my daily QTs. I’m always open to more resources that will help, you can never have enough 🙂

  362. Misty on August 31, 2016 at 3:50 pm

    Thank you Lara for such an awesome giveaway! Your hard work and wise words are a constant motivation (in faith and business).

  363. Kim on August 31, 2016 at 5:08 pm

    As a teacher, I encourage my students daily. Thanks for the encouragement you give me!!

    • Lara on September 1, 2016 at 2:58 pm

      Yes! Thank you for all you do for your students!

  364. Becky on August 31, 2016 at 6:03 pm

    My favorite resource for cultivating my faith is the small group Bible Study at my church. The ladies are great and the intensive directed time in study is so god for me.

  365. Becky on August 31, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    I decided to text an encouragement to whoever was listed first on the active screen of Facebook Messenger. It was my husband- so I texted him a sweet and encouraging message .

  366. Emma on September 1, 2016 at 10:18 am
