Here's a visual to help you better understand the nuances of our Identity in Christ. As we progress through the next four months more of the facets of this 'gem' will be explained. If you take a look at the gem, you can see Sonship is the largest and deepest part of this gem. There are a few reasons why. The understanding that we are children of God is foundational to our awareness of who we are in Christ. Sonship is also accessible to all of God's human creation. Every human being on this planet is God's creation (Colossians 1:16) but we do not become adopted children of God until we have chosen to obey and follow Christ (John 1:12; 11:52; Romans 8:16; 1 John 3:1-10). When we are reborn again in Christ, we then become restored to be the image bearers God intended (2 Corinthians 3:18, Col. 3:10). The deepest part of the gem is also the least visible part of the gem. These truths about us are deep and undergird the tenets of our Biblical identity. When you walk down the street people cannot not explicitly see that you are a child of God. The intrinsic nature of our sonship should compel us to live our lives in such a way that those who observe us, come into contact with us momentarily, or are in relationship with us cannot deny there is something distinguished and set apart about the very essence of our being. Deuteronomy 14:2 says: "You have been set apart as holy to the LORD your God, and he has chosen you from all the nations of the earth to be his own special treasure." In the coming weeks and months we will dive deeper into two other topics regarding our sonship- 'Title' and 'Name' specifically and we will continue to examine the facets of those important topics.

These blog posts are to enrich your Bible reading, devotion, or quiet time. This year we will be taking an in-depth look into our CoHeirness in Christ (Romans 8:17) from three distinct perspectives: IDENTITY-who we are in and through Christ INHERITANCE- the riches we receive when we are adopted into God's royal family FUNCTION- how we operate and what we're to do in the Kingdom of God. There will be blogs posted twice a month. Toward the end of each month Women of Faith will have a gathering (virtual for now but hopefully in person sooner rather than later) where we discuss the material/topic for that month. Finding the Blog You can always find the most recent post on the blog's home page here. If you're looking for a more specific category or post, they are also organized under their general topic (see screenshot) located in the blog menu. Note that the mobile view may look a bit different in the layout but all instructions apply generally speaking. How to utilize the posts: The posts were created with you and your busy schedule in mind. While posts can be read in one sitting (each post tells you at the beginning how long a read in minutes is), you can also use each section as a devotion for the day. Typically posts are broken up into three smaller parts. The End of Posts....... At the end of each post is a "challenge" section to further nurture us throughout the weeks. The challenge section is also broken up into three distinct sections: Challenge Questions- can be used as journal prompts or to spark thought on the subject matter. Challenge Convo- A prayer prompt to take with you into your prayer time with God Keyword Lookup- Biblical or Bible-related words/terms you can google or look up in your Bible. If you want to go DEEP DEEP, there are scripture references throughout each post that you can look up for further enrichment. Depending on how you utilize each post, these blogs can easily last you a week or 2. Sample Schedule: Take a look at this sample schedule for the blog post "Formation- Pt. 1of God the Father Series" There was no schedule made intentionally so that you could pace and grow at your own rate. Often times, we give up on studies because we feel like we've fallen behind or everyone else is doing such a great job at keeping up. The only solid, hard core goal, if you choose to track with Women of Faith's study guide is to read both posts by the Friday discussion meeting at the end of the month. If you have any questions or can't find something, please feel free to reach out to the Women of Faith leadership team via email (whenders83@gmail.com).

******This post is for those who desire to journal but don't necessarily know where to start. If you have a journaling method that's working for you- use it! If you wanna try something new, try this!!! We don’t have as much time as we’d like but journaling can be an amazing way to help you process your emotional, mental, and day-to-day happenings. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do you successfully journal? One day at a time. Follow the CROWN method of journaling: Concise Record-keeping Of Worthy and Notable occurrences Uncomplicated Journaling Journaling shouldn’t be complicated or intimidating. You shouldn’t need a PhD. in hand lettering or have to read an entire book to know how to fill another book with your thoughts and feelings. The CROWN method encourages you to choose a smaller-profile journal or notebook and your main focus is to concisely journal about that particular day, or chosen topic. The smaller profile notebook or journal to do CROWN journaling within will help keep you focused and encourage you to consolidate your record keeping to more significant thoughts, emotions, and experiences in your day. Journal entries are not inte nded to be more than one page per day. The CROWN method of journaling can work for new and experienced journalists alike. The beauty of CROWN journaling is that you’re the record-keeper so you get to dictate what is significant about the day or the day’s topic. Get Creative! Get creative! This is your journal. You feel like drawing? Draw! Diagrams are your thing? Diagram away! You wanna skip a day or journal every other day. Do it! You wanna one-word entry or 55-word your day? Did a tweet or an Instagram post speak to you? Have that be your journal entry. You’re allowed. Some Suggestions for Success: Create a routine. Think about whether or not you’re a morning or night time person. Consider journaling when you wake up or before you go to sleep. Find a quiet and cozy place in your home to journal. It can be a quiet corner or a favorite chair underneath your fuzziest blanket. Wherever it is, be consistent about journaling in that space. It will encourage you in your journaling routine. Give yourself a time window. A small journal has the potential to pack a punch. Give yourself 15 minutes to journal if you're crunched for time. If 15 minutes feels like not enough time, allow yourself up to 30minutes. Date your entries. This seems so simple but so easy to overlook. You’ll thank yourself later for dating your entries. Dating your entries (oh the puns that have come to mind) allows you to see how consistently you’ve been journaling and can help you set better journaling goals for the next week or month. Be kind to yourself. Don’t beat yourself up if you miss a couple of days. In order to be gracious with others we must first be gracious with ourselves. If you find yourself being inconsistent with your journal entries you may just need to adjust the amount of entries per week or month you create. Journaling is like a muscle. It will get stronger and easier to do with time and consistency.
