In a rush-about world, slowing down to take more time studying the Bible can be difficult. Devotionals are good tools to help us keep our minds on God. However, because they’re short and sweet, they don’t necessarily allow us to dig in and reflect on a deeper level. As a result, I’ve added an ancient spiritual practice to my devotional time.




Stories by Christian writers to encourage, entertain, and empower you in your faith, food, fitness, family, friendship, and fun.
