Dr. Catherine Braswell’s 52 Weeks of Practical Applications to Biblical Principles: A Guide to Practice What You Preach or Teach: How to Live the Word of God from Day to Day is a thoughtful work designed to connect the reader with a new approach to faith. By taking key biblical principles and combining them with practical applications designed for ease of use in the real world. Braswell offers unique insights that allow anyone to find a new role for faith in their lives. To learn more about this inspired approach the author sat down to share her thoughts about the project, as well as where she wants to see it go in the near future.
“I have always believed that bible study introduces the mind to new ways of thinking about the world, but I know how time-consuming it can be. That’s why I decided to devote myself to writing a practical guide that anyone can pick up and start putting to good use. It’s not so much about diving into the religious details as it is about finding new ways to fit faith into your life and use it as a tool for personal growth.”
It’s clear a laudable goal, but why now? Why in this current climate?
“Faith has the power to unite people from all walks of life, and yet everywhere you look religion is being pushed to the margins and our culture seems to be coming apart. There is so much division, negativity, and confrontation in the world right now that I believe faith and biblical principles are the only way to arrest the slide. It’s about practicing what you preach, standing up straight with your shoulders back, and being more than you were yesterday. If we all took a moment to think about the lessons the words of God can give us, we really would be in a very different place before any of us knew it.”
And how about the next 12 months? What’s she hoping is on the horizon?
“I want to start a debate around the importance of faith and the ways in which it can be used as a tool for good in a world in which factions and cliques seem to be everywhere right now. Faith is something that breaks down barriers and brings each and every one of us closer together than we could be through any other means. If we all strive for it when life allows us the space to do so then we really can begin to practice what we preach and set the right example for the next generation.”
