She notices the family Bible lying on a shelf beneath the coffee table and retrieves it. Katrina rubs her hand over the dusty leather and opens the stiff Bible. She prays to God for guidance and yearns to be closer to Him.

Through her Bible reading journey, Katrina discovers and meditates on ten scriptures that help her align with God and calm her anxieties. Perhaps they can help you align with God more closely, too.
