A place of writing and reflection…
Below you will find a list of other blogs and resources from friends of The FaithBook (and since there are so many of them I thought it only best to give them their own pages). These have both inspired me and numerous others, so feel free to take a look and thank you for visiting.
Formerly known as Rare Rocks: the Intentional Formation of Beautiful Souls comes from Felicity White; a teacher, student, and writer. Felicity says, “I started this blog with the idea of fleshing out a book idea, Rare Rocks. I think I’ve done that. I still love the Rare Rocks title and concept, but I’m tying it up with a bow for now and putting it in the archives. I will still refer to you as Rare Rocks, of course, because that is what we are and what we do, but I chose to give the new blog my name as a title so I can branch out into other topics as well.”
Becoming a Better Me
Becoming a Better Me comes from Amber, loving mother of three in her attempt at becoming a “better me” as she presses into God and address the ups and downs of life.
From the heart of a young Christian and poet, Amanda Rivas shares her own writing from the depths of her heart and life
experiences. Visit her blog for a unique perspective on the Christian life.
Daniel John Music comes from Dan White, worship leader and member of the band Finding Bethel. Here he shares his anecdotes about life and various music performances.

He believes that God loves him unconditionally, and that He will never leave him no matter what happens.

The Recovering Legalist is written by Anthony Baker. The point of his site? It is pretty simple – “combat legalism and legalistic thought within the body of Christ with the Truth that can be found through a faithful study of Scripture and a healthy use of common sense.”
Cathy Craig Neil brings us as she like to call it “Christianity out of the Box” with her site Did Jesus Have a Facebook? (Catchy isn’t it?) Cathy is a writer among multiple things writing the things she says God inspires her to write; and while her point may be serious, she knows how to throw in some humor. Cathy is a bold writer and well worth the read.
A Holy Experience is written by Ann Voskamp, a writer, farmer’s wife and mother of six who says, “When I read how God’s changing lives through those humble pages and it’s just proof that God really does use broken, messed up, and fallible lives anyways…but honestly? The only words that really matter? Are the ones I live. This convicts me. I keep writing it out here everyday, the words I am seeking to live — about this wondrously messy, everyday-holy life…about finding the beauty and quiet, about slowing to see the sacred in the chaos, the Cross in the clothespin, the flame in the bush…Just listening – laundry, liturgy, life, — holy ground. A holy experience — because all of life flames with God. It’d be pure grace to walk a bit, you and I – to live the words together…” Find Ann’s journaling, homeschooling tips and links along with information about her book “One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are“. She also includes scripture based printables and booklets free to download from her site. Enjoy!

The Bottom of a Bottle comes from Wayne, “I’m a thirty nine year old, father of two, but I had spent the previous few years steadily sinking into depression and struggling with an alcohol addiction, to the point that it destroyed everything I had and almost destroyed me, but I’ve turned it around, I’ve stopped drinking and made some big changes in my life. Six months later I found the inspiration to start this Blog and share the moments that pin point my fall and my recovery, in the hope that just one person will find some inspiration in my writing to turn around their own lives.” Today he says about his blog, “Trust me, I’ve been there, I’ve looked, I’ve searched and I know now, that there are no answers to be found in the bottom of a bottle or on the edge of a blade! Fighting Hard, Recovering, Rebuilding, REBORN. Moving on from addiction to a new life.”
The Matt Walsh Blog

Finding Faith is all about just that: finding faith in the everyday. Faith doesn’t just show up in the tough times, but its there in the everyday and requires work to grow it.
