Like water that emerges from a spring, what rises up as you reflect on last year and prepare for 2017?  Is your faith a top priority?

Several Christian women writers, including myself, were recently asked about how we hope to stay grounded, and grow, in our faith in 2017. Here’s what I shared:
By God’s grace, I pray for the strength, motivation, and discipline to continue to read God’s word every single day. I plan on doing so by utilizing tools such as the YouVersion Bible App’s daily Bible reading plans, as well as other helpful tools like Barbour Book’s Daily Wisdom for Women Devotional Collection.

I was honored that Lauren Gaskill asked me to contribute these thoughts. I hope you find the faith resolutions helpful as you step out in faith in the months ahead! Click on this link to read more:

Happy New Year!

  1. That’s a wonderful goal, Stacey. I’m still on my two-year plan to read through the Bible, although it may turn into 3 years. 😉 But that’s okay, too. It’s all good! Blessings to you on your journey.

  2. Thanks for directing us over to Lauren’s site. It is so good to hear how God is working in all of your lives.
    May He give you all great success in your endeavors to know Him more! 🙂

  3. Beautiful goal, Stacey. There is just something about His word, isn’t there? It never fails to make a difference in our days when we stop to read, does it? So thankful for the Bible. Thanks for sharing, Stacey, and thanks for linking up at the #ChasingCommunity launch! So glad to have you join in! ((hug))

  4. Staying grounded in His Word is certainly the best way to stay focused! 🙂 Lauren’s post was encouraging and a great reminder to look for His handprint in both the moutain-top and valley experiences of our faith journey.

  5. For years I read my Bible the last thing before going to bed. Than about 5 years ago, I made a change. Now reading my Bible is the first thing I do each morning. I have e-Sword on my computer with King James, but sometimes I go to one of the newer versions on computer. There are days I read the same chapter again and do not hurry to finish the Bible all in one year.
    Thank you for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story.
