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.

datta Who am I? I am in this universe as much as it is in I. What is I? I is sphere full of love. Imagination is more important than knowledge for all that we know is just an imagination. The language and the medium of this communication are also products of imagination. Reality as it seems can be termed as implementation of imagination. It is not mind over matter, it is only mind that matters. The theory of everthing is that there is absolutely nothing, God is absolute state of mind, soul that is everything and nothing, we are relative states of mind, bodies that are something in between. Happiness and sorrow are relative states of mind, absolute state of mind is peaceful.Truth is simple, accepting it is not. Be in Love to Rest in Peace.
Tothiwim The fundamental responsibility of every thinking being is to think for oneself.

DrDMO4Counsel We Walk By Faith Not By Sight. 1 Corinthians 5:7 (The Lord used my husband as the vessel to call me unto Him.) This is the scripture he sited and 2 months later Psalm 113 brought me totally and completely unto Him. At that time I was in charge of a sweet little girl and her 9 years older, half sister. I needed to know that He was real and after asking Him to lead me to what I was supposed to, bam, there I am reading Psalm 113! Thank you, Jesus! The rest of this story is history and testimony. He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the Lord. Psalm 113:9 From the rising if the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised. Psalm 113:3 This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
