Cultivate Your Life Podcast Episode 022: 1 Simple Way to Grow Your Faith


You’re more than halfway through 2019!

Have you set any goals you’re feeling “blah” about right now? Perhaps you’re wishing you’d been more consistent in your faith—maybe in Bible reading, prayer, or perhaps, like me, in trusting God over your worries.

Ready for a fresh start with your faith?


In this episode:

— I start with a few very special shout-outs from listeners. So glad to have y’all here!
— I tell you a little bit about my story of faith: how I felt so far away from people who talked about “reading the Bible in a year,” or even reading the Bible at all.
— I share some hope: that my turning point came from something very small and very doable, and thousands of other women have grown their faith because of it, too: writing the Word of God.
— I share some scripture that shows us that the Word is all we need: Psalm 119:105, Hebrews 4:12, Matthew 4:4, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, and John 1:1.
— We chat about the stats around handwriting and comprehension. Good news! What you write out yourself, you retain and understand better, which leads to action!
— I give you a scripture to try out writing the word: Psalm 119:11: I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Grab a piece of paper and a pen right now!
