God's written Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.

It illuminates our life, gives us wisdom and guides us through hard times.

It makes us prosperous and successful, full of life and abundant in joy!

But if you're anything like me, your Bible probably spends more time on the shelf collecting dust than it does being meditated on day and night.

Why is it so hard for us to make time for God's word?

Yes, we are all busy, but we make time for Facebook, texting and for friends. What about God?

What encourages you to spend time with Him?

What makes you not want to spend time with Him?

Why do we always run to empty wishing wells when we know we should be running to Christ...the Living Water of refreshment and life?

Jesus said if we drink of Him, we will never be thirsty again. So why am I running to empty wells?

Beginning May 2013, the girls at Crown of Beauty Magazine are about to embark on an amazing adventure. We are going to seek after God's heart. I've created a totally interactive opportunity to encourage you to spend more time with God, give you a place to talk with other girls, as we all step out together with a greater desire to know our Savior! I truly hope you'll join us as we run into the arms of Christ!

If you want to change your world, get to know God in a new way, and be encouraged by other girls who are doing the same, then you cannot afford to miss this.

Head on over to the God's Girls area of our Forum and let's get started!
