If you're a regular reader of Sayable it's no secret that regular writing has been, well, not so regular for nearly a year. Part of that has been the season of life and work for me—I've learned over the past 16 years of blogging that there are ebbs and flows, and no guarantee the words will always be there when I want them to. Part of it has just been how spiritually difficult this year has been for me. Maybe there are some of you out there who could make it through a year like this like a champ, I am not one of you. A few weeks ago I was confessing to a friend how difficult writing has been and she encouraged me with these words: just write about what you're learning in scripture. You don't have to teach, apply, or prove anything, just read scripture and write about it.
One of the places I have been writing for this year, She Reads Truth, has enabled me to do just that: write about scripture. In the lack of wisdom I have about any of the other things I'm walking through, the Bible never leaves me feeling empty. I always feel full when I have eaten at the table of scripture. The feast of the Word always fills its hearers—whether we feel like it or not.
She Reads Truth is about to begin a summer series on the book of Acts and they've graciously given my readers a code for a 15% discount on your Acts book orders. To be honest, I never used the books before Lent, they were primarily just scripture and I could just use my own Bible. But during the Lent study I used the She Reads Truth book and found it actually to be very helpful in that I could scribble in the margins in ways I don't do in my own Bible. It was a refreshing way to look at scripture (how many of us just glaze over the words in our well-worn, well-read Bibles?). Plus, they're gorgeous and I love celebrating the gifts of art and beauty within the Church.
If you'd like to order a She Reads Truth or a He Reads Truth book or bundle, use this code at the store and get 15% off your order: LORE15. The code is good until Monday, the 23rd of May.
I'm looking forward to reading along with you!
