How to Pray With Your Friends {Grace and Truth Link-Up}

Praying with our friends is powerful.  I think it bonds us together on a deeper level and I love that it provides accountability.  Sometimes a friend will ask about something we prayed for together- and only then do I realize that God, indeed, answered that prayer.  This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is called, How to Pray WITH Your Friend, Not Just for Your Friend, by Lisa, who writes at Lisa Notes.  In it, Lisa provides some great tips on how to pray with our friends.  I hope you'll go say hello and be encouraged by her words as I was.

Are There Any Errors in the Bible?

“Telephone” is childhood game that you’re probably familiar with.  I remember sitting in a circle with other kids as we each took turns listening to a neighbor on one side of us whisper some silly message into our ear, then we passed along that information by whispering into the other neighbor’s ear.  Around the circle went the message until it got back to the original person who started it.  The bigger the circle, the more potential there was for the message to morph into something very different from what it was when it started.  Sometimes, a kid would intentionally change the message, just to be silly.  The game vividly illustrated how easily stories change over time as they’re passed along, particularly in verbal exchanges. 

31 Days: New Beginnings, Journal

My newest printable journal, 31 Days:  New Beginnings, is a packed full of beautiful quote graphics and scriptures that celebrate new beginnings.  The arrival of spring and the celebration of Easter is a good time to ponder the gift of new life that Christians have been given, through grace, because of Jesus. 
 

How Do We Know that the Bible is God's Word?

It was a strange site to see… really. 

Two women walking in the neighborhood who seemed so very different from each other. 

I would walk in short, a t-shirt, and tennis shoes. Some of the days were extremely warm with temperatures soaring into the 90’s. The other woman, my neighbor, had much darker skin and was covered from head to toe. She even wore an hijab (scarf covering her head and neck) even on the hottest days.
