Welcome to My Journey of Faith Ministries!
My Journey of Faith is a community of Christians for the purpose of sharing Christ’s love with each other and also to encourage one another along life’s journey. Every journey is different for we are created unique in order to fulfill the divine purpose our Creator has specifically designed for us. Your journey may not be exactly like anyone else but similar trials or experiences can give you the opportunity to connect with someone who shares empathy and insight into your situation. It is important for you to know that you are not alone. We all need friends and loved ones to hold our hand, show us love and encouragement, and help us safely across dangerous terrain. Every journey of faith begins one step at a time and we all need help from others along the way until we complete our purpose on earth and cross into our heavenly home with Jesus.
We are commanded in the verse above to help and encourage one another daily because we share a common love for the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior and we have a desire to please Him. Your faith story is important and meant to be shared. Here is a place you can share what Christ has done for you. It is here that you will find many different ways to give and receive encouragement. This website is dedicated to Christian women who desire to grow and mature in the image of Jesus Christ. This site will provide an opportunity for you to share your stories, your experiences of joy, sorrow, moments of reflection and more with Christian sisters. God often allows events in our life to teach us life lessons that must be shared with others. Here is a place to tell your story and encourage someone else. You may find yourself being uplifted as well.
A group of Christians await to listen to your story, learn from your experiences and gain insight into their own life.

Watch the video below for an idea about what ministries we are involved in:
We blog, write, teach or participate in Biblical webinars and Bible Studies, podcast, web radio, host a book club, Facebook and Twitter, produce an online magazine and more. We are always looking for new ways to share our stories.We are a group of Christian women who love the Lord Jesus Christ and serve Him daily. We believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, died on a cross as the sinless Son of God, rose from the dead, appeared before many in His glorified body, and that He is coming again! It is our hope that you will find this website helpful as we share together. Share your life experiences through one of the methods mentioned above or perhaps the Lord has given you a vision for a new way to share your story. Let us know how we can expand this ministry of sharing God’s story. Already have a blog, teach an online Bible Study, have a web radio program, Facebook or Twitter page or something completely different? Let us link to you and you can link to us. Let us know how we can get your story out. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and join the team. May God bless you this very hour.
