Personal Liberty

    Freedom: Personal liberty as opposed to bondage or slavery I am so glad to be born in America. So often I wonder why I was born in a land of so many freedoms, while someone else millions of miles away was born into an area of oppression and hardship. I know things are not always easy here in the US. As one of our writers brings to light this edition, there is a terrifying and growing slave trade here that rivals any other country. There is poverty, hunger, unemployment, abuse, and many other areas that are keeping America …

Rescued from Perfection

  When we talk about Faith, it seems that there could be any number of things to discuss. But I have found myself stuck as I have thought about the root of what my faith really is, when it began, and how I found it. What does faith mean for me? What is the significance of faith in my life? The past two months have brought me to a place of reflection about my own journey of faith.

Sharing A New Journey

Some have asked about the next Encourage Retreat. The ministry team for My Journey of Faith has decided not to hold a large weekend event for 2019. We feel that God is calling us to get smaller and more intimate with this awesome gift we have that is the Encourage Retreat Model, so we are making it mobile! If you are interested in hosting a mini-retreat for your church, a friend group, a recovery center, really any group of 20 or less- we would love to offer this to you! We are also offering individual Story Coaching and Spiritual Direction …

Fixing Hope on Jesus

Through Him [Christ] we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. (Romans 5: 2-5) Hope. It is something that we have all experienced in our lives, whether it’s hoping for that one particular birthday gift, …

I know things are not always easy here in the US. There is a terrifying and growing slave trade here that rivals any other country. There is poverty, hunger, unemployment, abuse, and many other areas that are keeping America from becoming the amazing place it could be. Comparatively, however, the United States is a pretty great place to live. We …
