Our faith guides us in all that we do. It is what enables us to manage This Grit and Grace Life. Since we believe we serve a personal God who cares about every aspect of our life, we realize that getting to know him better makes a huge difference. Faith helps us navigate all the challenges we face with the assurance that there are answers to our problems. In this episode, we’re bringing it back to the basics. What does it mean to be a Christian? How do you begin and grow in faith? Are there ways to learn more about God and the bible? Even what do Darlene and Julie find helpful in their own lives? This and more from two imperfect, still-growing Christian women who want to encourage you wherever you are today. Grab your coffee (maybe your bible) and tune in to this heartfelt discussion. Perhaps even share it with a friend.
Looking to start studying the bible more? Try the 3 P’s method Julie mentioned. As you read a passage of scripture look for God’s power, presence and/or promises.

Quote of the episode:
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.” -Romans 12:1 MSG
