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.

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.

polkadots The King met a beggar on a lonely road one day A strange occurance took place as you will see, That beggar fell upon her knees and she cried, "Oh, pardon me. I am unworthy in your presence to be." But the King looked at the beggar and He said, "You've been set free. Your sins are all forgiven. Now you're born in royalty." And now the King and the beggar are walking arm-in-arm,....you see....That King Was Jesus, The King of Kings and that beggar was ME! He picked me up, turned me around, set my feet on Solid Ground - God was the Best Thing that ever happened to me. I was in despair - I did not believe, but He was all "they" said and more. God is truly wonderful. It has been 9 years. It's worth sincerely giving Him a chance.
