Ep. 68 : Fall in Love with God’s Word with Brittany Ann

The very word QUIET TIME can seem archaic in our day in age. However, as we unpack the link between psychology and theology and leadership at Living Wholehearted, a common thread in becoming wholehearted is knowing the One who made us and walks with us in our day to day lives. Whether you call it “renewing our minds” and “reframing” or “schemas” - reading the Bible is a central part of taking our thoughts captive, grounding our emotions, and developing our identity. Maybe you are overwhelmed by where to start in reading your Bible or you have found yourself looking at the dusty book for some time with no desire or direction. Mo st followers of Jesus know that reading God’s Word is a powerful part of growing in our relationship with the One who loves us and knows us.
