First, the vlog for ya'll.
Journaling comes natural to me. I've always been a note-taker, writing type. I can't seem to commit something to memory until I've written it down. I also found writing notes during college courses helped me stay focused -same goes for podcasts, sermons, any auditory media really. That said, I find it useful. I don't believe that journaling is a wonderful, fruitful experience for everyone, but have found it so refreshing for myself.
Here are my notes for John 1:
I found the application to be the most exciting part to try and work through. John became my focus for the week -though Jesus, the disciples, or even the words used to describe God are completely wonderful themes to focus on.
How'd it go for you girls?
Please be encouraged by the work that He's doing in your heart -even though it looks different than what's happening in mine. And with that, your opportunity to link on up with the Milking Stool Ministry.
In closing, I encourage you to be the bright shiny thing that He's made you to be this week. A bright, shiny thing that's got a message to share, got a joy to shower down, got a beauty to emanate.
"In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it."

This week we're going to tackle John 2 & 3.
These chapters are filled with some of Christ's first miracles and public displays of power. Take special note of the context or circumstances in which He is doing His thing -those aren't random or unimportant and, in fact, speak to moments that God finds valuable.
And, finally, here's the Facebook group for you. Don't be shy in requesting to join, I just want to be sure it doesn't get spammed.
