The Movable Adventure Journal:
A Companion to the Online Experience
from Visual Faith™ Ministry
This 8.5 x 11 journal is the perfect companion to the new online experience from Visual Faith™ Ministry. Over 40 speakers have contributed to this project, and here, in one place, you have notes, quotes, and added content covering all four of the Movable Adventure’s pathways for transformation.
A convenient way to keep your thoughts and responses together no matter how long you take journeying through the online video sessions, The Movable Adventure Journal will encourage you pray, give you the space to engage, and keep you focused on what Jesus is shaping in you as you explore habits and practices that will shape your faith walk for years to come.
The Personal Pathway for transformation in the Movable Adventure is filled with creative prayer practices that will enable you to engage God’s Word as an individual and help move you ever closer to the Lord. Like the online experience, The Movable Adventure Journal features Carolyn Bira from Visual Faith™ Ministry and includes content from a variety of other visual faith practitioners.
The Households of Faith Pathway for transformation explores ways for families on the go to connect together in daily life and how to nurture faith within the household. Dionne Lovstad-Jones from Lutheran Hour Ministries lays the foundation for this pathway while a range of other contributors discuss topics like spiritual milestones or faith formation for busy families.
The Community Discipleship Pathway for transformation looks at discipleship as the adventure of walking together on a journey of faith. Justin Rossow, founder of Next Step Press, explores what it means to say we follow Jesus better when we follow Him together. Other fellow travelers along the way share their favorite faith formation practices as they follow Jesus in the classroom, in neighborhood outposts, and in the local congregation.
Finally, the Digital Pathway for transformation helps us consider the question, “What’s the shape of your digital witness?” Chad Lakies, Regional Director of North America for Lutheran Hour Ministries,
“Since I started this devotional journaling process, it’s moved me to a more complete devotional time where I want to do it every day! It’s part of me.“

“God met me where I was, drew me in by my name, and showed me how time with Him was a delight.”

About Visual Faith™ Ministry
Visual Faith™ Ministry is the collaborative effort of online and “in-real-life” learning communities to enrich, encourage, and enable the vital connections between visual and kinesthetic learning styles and the storytelling of God’s faithfulness in our lives.
Visual faith is reading, reflecting, and responding to God’s Word. It welcomes writing, drawing, designs, and color to create reminders of faith that help tell the story for followers of Jesus. Visual Faith reminds us that we are made in the image of a creative God.
Visual faith honors God’s creative sanctification of believers on a daily basis and is the basic process of bringing together our great gifts of prayer and God’s Word. It adds visual, kinesthetic, and tactile adaptations that make meaning for us in our daily lives. Visual faith is a “selfie” of our time with God, helping us to remember, retain, and be ready to share it with others.
In all of these ways and more, visual faith helps to answer the question, “What does this mean for me?”

About the Movable Adventure Online Experience
What is the Holy Spirit doing in your life?
The Movable Adventure is an online experience created by Visual Faith™ Ministry to assist you in discovering your growing faith journey. Visual Faith tools provide an outline for faith formation that may become a practice, that then becomes a lifestyle, that can help transform us into apprentices of Jesus, all through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Over 40 Videos
Movable Adventure speakers were hand-picked based on their relatable experiences, expertise, and teachable hearts. Their knowledge and passion for spiritual transformation practices offer great encouragement. Our speakers are bringing you real-life stories filled with grace-laced successes. Everyday disciples in multiple seasons of life give you hope that change and movement is possible.

Give Yourself Permission
While the work of transformation can be difficult, and even painful at times, God has provided all that we need to embark upon this endeavor. The Spirit is in the process – and the Spirit makes it happen! The Movable Adventure gives you permission to take intentional steps in spending time with God and exploring the gift of faith you have been given.
The Movable Adventure is not a sprint to the finish line. It is simply a way for you to continue to grow in your faith. Spiritual transformation will never be completed on this side of heaven. But the journey is worth it. These videos are here for you to watch again and again.
