Thanks so much for taking the time to sit with me awhile:)

Short post here today…on a little trip away with friends, but continuing to read through the Bible which is so timely as I also work through Angie Smith’s study “Seamless.”

Today, I step back to Genesis after having completed week 1 of SEAMLESS.

Not much has changed with us sinners!

Here is Genesis 5-11 in doodles:)

Have a blessed weekend ya’ll!





Hope this post finds you experiencing God’s presence!

We are in Exodus this week.

Here is a visual breakdown for Exodus so far!

Freedom! It comes at a price.

For our generation, that price has been paid in full.

For the Israelites, there would be significant growing pains and personal atonement.

It’s going to be a long road!

But, God is faithful to keep His covenant, even when we are not.

So grateful,





Let My People Go

How’s your reading going? I am doing a combination of reading and listening by using an audio Bible app:)

It’s so awesome to be able to listen to the Bible…in the car, while I’m doing laundry, etc.

For those of you who are reading the Bible in a year with the app READ SCRIPTURE…let’s agree that it’s a hefty amount of reading every day:)

Hope these little doodles help you remember this section of scripture!



Read the Bible in a Year- Lion of Judah

Good day!

It’s always a good day for a good day:)

As “we” finish the book of Genesis, we’re reminded of Jesus “family tree” as Joseph’s life comes to it’s earthly end.

Jesus complete lineage is a bit confusing …though we do know two things to be ultimately true…

Jesus is the Son of Abraham and the Son of David.

“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” -Matthew 1:1

”and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” to Abraham -Genesis 22:18

“Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.” Isaiah 9:7

If you are out there on the same journey (reading the Bible in 1 year) I hope that my posts will be an encouragement to you!





Good day!

For those of you who have not read about my “Read the Bible in a Year” project, I will continue to post the details for those who have “stepped into” my blog for the first time:)

My church is using the app READ SCRIPTURE. It comes with great tools and videos that introduce each book as you go. You can find it HERE      

I highly recommend it!

We are getting close to the end of the Book of Genesis.

You have probably read/heard the story of Joseph and his beautiful coat. I can’t help thinking that as wicked as his brothers became, I’ll bet that many of us can relate to the feelings of jealousy they had. Dad clearly had favorites…especially Joseph. His brothers were not only feeling jealousy, but rejection and fear. Who hasn’t felt those?

When we act out of our emotions, we too, throw our brothers and sisters in a pit. 😔

So… things were’nt always peachy for the favored Joseph…and although he suffered many obstacles and trials, the Lord had a plan to use every step…for the good of Joseph, his family and the nation. Joseph was confident in his faith and did not lose hope because he knew His God to be good and faithful.

God provided exactly what Joseph needed every step of the way…even when it looked like all hope was lost.

Much like his coat, each separate color, became one, when the tailor weaved them together. It may not have looked like a beautiful coat, as the fabric sat in pile waiting to be sewn. The finished product would be hard for most to imagine…so we find it hard to grasp until it is finished. That is the thing about faith. We have to trust first….that the pile we feel under will be used for something more…something we cannot yet see…something for our good.

Joseph’s life is a great encouragement for us as we face obstacles in our life! Keep moving forward in the direction God is calling you to go and he will be faithful to provide exactly what you need. Even if you can’t “imagine” it.

“Year of the Word” Reading the Bible in one year

Still in Genesis…

Today’s section was Genesis 32-34, but I peeked ahead and watched the awesome “overview video” on day 11.

We are using the app READ SCRIPTURE. It comes with great tools and videos that introduce each book as you go. You can find it HERE

I created this doodle after watching the video.

Even God’s chosen few made BIG mistakes. We are in good company. God’s plan will never be stopped by our failings. Thank you Jesus…for an indescribable love.


Genesis / Read the Bible in a Year:)

Oh I wonder so often… how can we have such a generous, loving, compassionate, forgiving, faithful, righteous Father and ever choose to turn away?

Broken covenant after broken covenant…our Father’s response????

Provide for us a lasting covenant…one that we cannot break.

Praise His name forever…forgive us for our lack of faith…for even the rocks cry out your glory.

feeling so humble and grateful,


Genesis 18


As I mentioned yesterday, my home church body has committed to read through the Bible in one year. I also confessed that the Lord has been stirring my heart to set aside some of the time I spend creating blog material to spend time  ———> deepening relationships through discipleship.

So, my posts may be shorter in nature, and less frequent than in the past, but I have a feeling that I will be sharing the process with you through my journaling and doodling:)

In a week, I will also begin the study “Seamless” by Angie Smith with the ladies at my church. It is a study that tackles connecting the whole counsel of God to help us understand the “big picture” and the story of Jesus that weaves throughout the Old Testament and New Testament.  A perfect addition to our church wide call to read all of scripture in 2018.

We are using an app called “READ SCRIPTURE” by Crazy Love Ministries. It’s definitely worth checking out Sisters! It provides a daily reading plan as well as additional videos that describe each book of the Bible as you go. They are very clever and helpful! The link for it is below:)


Genesis 18

When I can, I will provide some commentary…more likely, I will be sharing some visuals (which help me to recall what I’ve learned!) for those of you who are reading with me!

Thanks so much for sharing with me. It was encouraging to hear from others who are taking this year to read the WHOLE BOOK ❤️

Check out that app!

Much love to you,
