Nature is God’s second book. If you love nature and want to strengthen your relationship with God, check out this series of devotionals for nature lovers.
Why Write Devotionals for Nature Lovers?
You should know something about me, whether you visit regularly or this is your first time stopping by. I LOVE nature. Spending time outside soothes my soul, and it’s my preferred method of self-care. I also love photographing all of the amazing, quirky, beautiful, spectacular, and odd things I see in my wonderings.
While I wander or process photos, I often think of Bible verses and lessons nature teaches me. I had so much fun writing devotionals for nature lovers last year about all the beautiful things I’ve seen and photographed, that I decided to do it again. You’re invited to dive into the beautiful world of God’s second book—Nature.
You’ll find the titles for each devotional in the series below. I hope you enjoy learning about creation and feel strengthened in your walk with God as you join me.
