How do you connect with God? Is it early in the morning with a cup of coffee and your Bible? Do you love to go to worship nights at church and sing? Are you part of a Bible Study where you meet and regularly pray? Or do you love to be out in nature and feel close to God in His Creation. Maybe it is a mixture of all of these.
I am so excited to have Jennie Denney on the podcast this week as we discuss her book, *Shaping the Soul. Jennie invited other artists and writers to collaborate with on this book about spiritual practices. I love that she is encouraging us to create space for the Holy Spirit to work in our lives and that these spiritual practices can work in conjunction with reading your Bible, praying, going to church, all the things that many of us are already doing. I cannot wait for you to hear the creativity and the way we can use our five senses to connect more with God each day and throughout the day. I promise you are going to learn so much from Jennie!
Also, I am so excited for someone to win a copy of Jennie’s book: *Shaping the Soul. All the details of the book giveaway are on my website at jodirosser.com or you can click this direct link: https://jodirosser.com/giveaways/shaping-the-soul-giveaway/
