Loaves & Fishes

This journal draws its inspiration from the story of the boy who gave his lunch of 5 loaves and 2 fish to Jesus, and his small gift was multiplied to feed the multitude of hungry people. Each of the 7 days before, 10 days during and 7 days after invites you to think about your own hunger, God’s provision, even abundant provision, and ends with the question, “What do I have to give?” Each lesson has a page of scriptures, prayers and reflection questions related to the theme for that day plus a second “Open Basket Page” for journaling, note-taking, drawing, and whatever the Lord gives you to fill your “open basket.”   ($8.50)
