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.

omidsafi Omid Safi is the author of Memories of Muhammad: Why the Prophet Matters (HarperOne 2009). Memories of Muhammad provides a new biography of the Prophet of Islam as the role model for millions of modern Muslims.

Covering such hot button issues such as the spread of Islam, holy wars, the role of women, the significance of Jerusalem, tensions with Jews and Christians, wahabbi Islam, and the role of cyberspace in the evolution of the religion, Memories of Muhammad presents Muhammad as a lens through which to present the unfolding of both Islamic history and Islamic religion.

DeistReality If the journey of an after life be true, I look forward to the adventure of it. If the journey is not true then I won't remember any of my adventures past or present anyway. I know God is true,so the possibility of an after life exists! I will live my life in a way that will insure that possibility. M.B
MadThespian God moves in extremely mysterious, not to say, circuitous ways. God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, [ie., everybody.] to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.

He prays to him and thinks He listens. Isn't it a quaint idea." MARK TWAIN
bmcanally The only thing that matters is faith expressed through love (Gal. 5:6). I'm a follower of Christ, an author about heaven, hell, the afterlife, and about world religions, and I'm a pastor. I like people...they are God's finest creation!
oogiac My God may have a diffenrent job description than yours; mine is the Creator, that’s all - but that’s everything! For some people, God is the Father, judge and jury, teacher, healer and savior - and above all, the fulfiller of prayers and wishes. He is also chief engineer, supervisor and maintenance man. Does God watch over every blade of grass to monitor its growth, or over every raindrop to direct its trajectory, so that it falls in the right place on its eventual journey to the sea? No way, for only a foolish and ineffective overseer would do that. Isn’t it enough that His / Her Creation, in all its glory, was created with mechanics and chemistry working in perfect unison in self adapting perpetuity? The wonder of Creation is not that God watches over everything - or creates everything from the ground up - but that He doesn’t have to! In more personal matters, does God decide who shall live and who shall die, who shall be afflicted or who shall thrive, or who shall catch cold or who shall suffer a hangnail? Like it or not, the god of Abraham, Isaac, and everyone else, seems not to give one flying fig about who lives or who dies, or why. Let’s give God His or Her due, but take responsibility ouselves - with the help of our leaders ( and sometimes despite them ) - to make this world that was given to us the best we can possibly make it.
