5 Ways to Grow Your Faith

2020 feels like 10 years wrapped up all in one. Do you feel like you have grown a decade from the inside out in 2020? In the midst of the unknown and circumstances, do you feel like your faith has grown?

I know I do. I feel like my faith grew this year 10x. I dedicated much more time to my faith than ever this year. Five Ways to Grow Your Faith will give you insights into prayer, walks and meditations in nature, Bible Studies, virtual events, and aligned actions for your life. I see and feel transformation daily myself. I know you will too.

Grow Your Faith

Growing your faith is easier said than done. The 5 Ways to Grow Your Faith are no more or less important than one another. Each and every one has helped me grow my faith.

I marvel at how my prayer life has changed both on the offensive and defensive side. 2020 increased my time in nature with walks and meditations exponentially. All of the increased time at home allowed more time for pouring into Bible Studies with teachers I love.

I didn't let the current environment or circumstances stop me from growing by attending virtual events. I increased my accountability in aligning actions to what I want to create with my life, community and business.

1 Prayer Matters

I started this year by increasing my prayer through a fast in January, April, September and November. I finished the Bible for the second time this year, and Psalms and Proverbs both increased my intensity for prayer. Not only that, but a number of circumstances in life and studies I will share compelled me to pray.

My prayer life changed this year by praying gratitude for what God has done and reminding me of victories in the past. In addition, I increased my focus on defensive prayer with warfare and related books and studies. My specificity increased in prayer as well.

I felt led to pray for you and our world earlier this year along with creating Bible Studies too.

2 Nature Time

Many of us found a new found love for parks and nature this year. I am no different. Chastain Park is about 2 miles from my house. In March - November, I found myself walking the 4 mile round trip 3+ times a week.

What especially drew me is the stream and sound of running water in the middle of the park. I loved to sit, meditate, read and pray for hours on the rock by the stream or swing on the swings. Each and every time after my walk and visit, I felt like a new woman.
