View Full Version : My Life:My Faith



Precepts and Promises

I am terribly excited to be bringing a new faithbooking class to GDS, "My Life: My Faith." I've been mulling over and working on this for some time now, and I am looking forward to documenting what is most important in my life, what is the foundation for my decisions, my hope, my joy.

UPDATE!!! This class is now live and in the store (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&cPath=29_183&products_id=10890)!

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/images/large/_barbara/gds_pandp_myfaithpv_LRG.jpg

Class will begin on April 2, and it will run for 4 weeks. I will have daily prompts for your journey, encouraging you to reflect on the various ways your faith has impacted your life. When the class is completed, and you have finished your layouts, you will have enough pages to make a meaningful photo book.

Included in the class price will be:
Daily Prompts and Emails
A Dedicated Forum and Gallery
A Template Pack
A Word Art Pack
A Faithbooking Kit

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a personal message or post in the this thread, if you believe that others will benefit, too.

And, please note, that while I am a Christian, this class isn't limited to only those of my faith. I've worked on prompts that will be applicable to different faiths. However, the kit and the word art will most likely reflect my heart.

I'm really looking forward to this new adventure.

Update:
Just a little update, my friends:
I'm hard at work, putting together products for the class. I thought I might give you some ideas to get yourselves ready, too.
This will be a fast-paced 4 weeks, so doing just a few things in preparation will really help you later on.

1) Set up a folder on your hard drive just for the class. You can include sub-folders: for example, for journaling text documents and for any photographs you might want to include.
If you'd like, you can also make and save blank documents, 1-20. I'll be supplying a few templates in 12x12, but of course, you are free to not use them and to make your pages any size of your choosing.

2) If you know you have photographs you'd like to include in your story, gather them now (I'm thinking of baptisms, and influential people in your faith, your church, etc.) You certainly don't have to have photographs, but if you think they might add to your book, it would be good to gather them now.

3) As you reflect on your faith throughout your life, make your notes in text documents and add them to the folder.
I understand that you are working in the dark right now, not knowing the prompts. But, these exercises will begin the process of you meditating on your faith, and that will make it easier when those prompts do come for you to recall events and people. One memory will lead to another...

I would so appreciate your prayers, not only for my preparation, but for yours, too.

Well Barbara, this is right up my alley! Don't know if I can squeeze it in!

Question: Will the forum be available after the class ends? i.e., can I get to the prompts etc in August if I purchase the class now?

Thx.

Praying as you lay the course or finish up the work etc. Bless you.

Hi, Susan!
I'm thinking that would be quite possible. I've never hosted a class like this, so I'm not sure of all the details. I'll probably be figuring things out on the fly! I am thinking that after the class ends, it might be available as a self-paced workshop, with the prompts in a PDF. I'll be mulling this over, figuring out how best to make it all work.
And, thank you SO MUCH for your prayers! I am indeed working away at making a wonderful kit for you all. My plan is to have it up in the store by mid-February.
I'll be leaving for a visit to the East Coast about then, to attend my two granddaughters' birthday party. So, I want it all wrapped up by then, so I can just be Nana while there. :-)

I hope these please you, too.

Being new here & just learning my way around the site. I do have a question about the My Life; My Faith coming up. I'm anxious to join in this, but would like to have an idea about the expense involved before I get to excited about it. Since I'm on a fixed income I'm hoping that it isn't one of those things that costs a ton of $$$. There have been things that I'd enjoy doing on other sites, but just couldn't afford their cost. Looking at the prices in the store, I'm thinking this may well be an affordable site to be involved in. :) But I didn't see anything that looked like this.
Thanks for your help. Have a beautiful day!

Thank you so much for your interest, Anne!
With this economy, I think there are quite a few of us with less discretionary income these days. I'm very much aware of that (being on furlough from my "real" job), and I do strive to keep my products affordable, but with value for the cost.
After some consideration, I've decided to post the price of $25. For that you will receive:
4 templates
24 papers
12 digital stamps
an upper case alpha
at least 35 elements (I'm not sure I'm done yet!)
and a word art pack.
In addition, there will be a dedicated forum and gallery, and daily prompts and emails from me to guide you through the process of creating your book.
When you finish, you will have beautiful pages documenting your faith, enough to make a memory book to treasure.
I hope this information was helpful to you!

I am terribly excited to be bringing a new faithbooking class to GDS, "My Life: My Faith." I've been mulling over and working on this for some time now, and I am looking forward to documenting what is most important in my life, what is the foundation for my decisions, my hope, my joy.

UPDATE!!! This class is now live and in the store (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&cPath=29_183&products_id=10890)!

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/images/large/_barbara/gds_pandp_myfaithpv_LRG.jpg

Class will begin on April 2, and it will run for 4 weeks. I will have daily prompts for your journey, encouraging you to reflect on the various ways your faith has impacted your life. When the class is completed, and you have finished your layouts, you will have enough pages to make a meaningful photo book.

Included in the class price will be:
Daily Prompts and Emails
A Dedicated Forum and Gallery
A Template Pack
A Word Art Pack
A Faithbooking Kit

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a personal message or post in the this thread, if you believe that others will benefit, too.

And, please note, that while I am a Christian, this class isn't limited to only those of my faith. I've worked on prompts that will be applicable to different faiths. However, the kit and the word art will most likely reflect my heart.

I'm really looking forward to this new adventure.

Update:
Just a little update, my friends:
I'm hard at work, putting together products for the class. I thought I might give you some ideas to get yourselves ready, too.
This will be a fast-paced 4 weeks, so doing just a few things in preparation will really help you later on.

1) Set up a folder on your hard drive just for the class. You can include sub-folders: for example, for journaling text documents and for any photographs you might want to include.
If you'd like, you can also make and save blank documents, 1-20. I'll be supplying a few templates in 12x12, but of course, you are free to not use them and to make your pages any size of your choosing.

2) If you know you have photographs you'd like to include in your story, gather them now (I'm thinking of baptisms, and influential people in your faith, your church, etc.) You certainly don't have to have photographs, but if you think they might add to your book, it would be good to gather them now.

3) As you reflect on your faith throughout your life, make your notes in text documents and add them to the folder.
I understand that you are working in the dark right now, not knowing the prompts. But, these exercises will begin the process of you meditating on your faith, and that will make it easier when those prompts do come for you to recall events and people. One memory will lead to another...

I would so appreciate your prayers, not only for my preparation, but for yours, too.
