Daily Prompt: In Good Faith
by michelle w. on June 14, 2013
Describe a memory or encounter in which you considered your faith, religion, spirituality — or lack of — for the first time.
As far back as I can remember, I have been spiritual and very attuned to Nature. I was raised Southern Baptist, taught the Bible by my maternal grandpa, who was a Southern Baptist Preacher. I held true to his teachings, but lost faith several times in my 50+ years. For me it would be a lack of faith that I would notice. I remember the first time. It was such a long time ago, 1972, when my baby brother was killed. I still had my grandpa to turn to, but he was in deep grief for a long time. The one thing that I remember helped me most, was reading Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.
In 1995, I came across another book that helped me understand more and come to peace with Creator; Conversations With God, Book 1, by Neale Donald Walsch.
I have turned to these books over and over again throughout the years. The books and what my grandpa taught me has sustained my faith through many trying times.
