Our hearts wander.
We long to remain faithful to God, but forget we are human.
The great news is God isn’t going anywhere. He longs for you to know Him. Not just know about Him, but know His deep, deep personal love for you.
Today’s guest, Lacey Dobrient, shares her own story of wandering, the single life, loss of her father and secondary infertility. . .events which all led her to study God’s Word more intently.
Lacey shares the method God revealed to her when she prayed for a way to know Him more.
I know there are lots of Bible study options out there, but I wanted to share this fun and purposeful one with y’all. AND I didn’t even know all the authentic sharing Lacey would do during our interview. Powerful stuff.
Connect with Lacey:
The Write the Word Bible journal is unique. With Lara Casey’s small business, and three littles running under the same roof, her “quiet time” each day is pretty loud! She prayed one morning for God to give her a simple way to connect with Him, right in the thick of it, and the Write the Word journal was born.
On each page, you’ll get a selection of specially-selected key verses to write out, along with space to write your thoughts, prayers, or whatever God places on your heart. Use your Write the Word Bible journal in whatever ways you wish! These journals are all about grace and digging into God’s life-giving truth.
Each volume has a different set of verses from both the Old and New Testaments.
