Have you ever shared your personal spiritual journey in words or pictures? What does your faith look like when no one is watching? Do you have a favorite prayer or blessing? How do you imagine God? Do you consider yourself spiritual but not religious?
Faithbooking is a creative expression of an individual or family's spiritual journey. Beliefs, values and life events are captured in scrapbooks, diaries or journals, often incorporating photographs, decorated papers, scripture, thoughts, prayers, blessings and stories.
We want to create the largest and most diverse digital Faithbook ever. Help us by designing a page for you, your family, your community group or house of worship. Share your faith tradition or spiritual journey. Upload photos and short video clips. Help others learn and understand what you believe and why.
