Do the words “spiritual memoir” intimidate you. Do you feel unequipped to take on the task of writing about the spiritual journey? Do you think only pastors, priests, monks, rabbis and other spiritual authorities are prepared to take on spiritual memoir writing? Are you willing to consider that the spirituality of our lives is a story anyone is fit to share?

A certain amount of faith is required for all of us here. Any pilgrimage is risky and unreliable with the sojourn taking the traveler someplace unknown and often unexpected. What if the only people who took this journey were those who believed they were fit for the task? Would this make the road much emptier of travelers? I think we need to have some faith: faith to consider our story and the possibility of traveling the road leading us to share it.
Consider beginning your pilgrimage through the keeping of a journal. A spiritual journal will give you insight, direction and the faith needed to travel the road of the spiritual storyteller. Don’t be intimidated by the words “spiritual memoir.” You have a story and you are fit to share it. A journal will help you find a voice for you spiritual autobiography. Journaling can be your first step towards sharing your story. is a resource I designed for developing a journal that explores the personal journey. Every page of has a journaling prompt and suggestions for offering your story. Journey on Canvas Blog gives you an opportunity to share what you have discovered in your journal with others. Let you journal become a place to describe the everyday experience of God at work in your life and let Journey on Canvas Blog become a place to share that experience. I invite you to share and hope that you will! I want to hear your story.

Tears for Dancing, Age 42 

The older I get the less I think about what I can get out of this life. Bad things happen here on Earth and no one is immune. I see my parents suffering, I watch terrible things happen to my friends and I see catastrophic events that create hell on Earth. Revelation 21:4 promises that someday God will wipe every tear from our eyes and the old order of things will pass away. I’m beginning to think that this promise isn’t so far away: it’s just waiting for us at the next stop. Maybe when we die we trade our tears for dancing and enter Heaven. Until then, I'm going to paint, I'm going to write, and I'm going to share when I find hope in this life. That's why I'm here at Journey on Canvas.
