Welcome to Connecting Dots to God, a blog about making connections between earth and heaven, between physical experience and metaphysical truth, and between ordinary people like you and me and an extraordinary God like none other.
The most frequent comment that I receive on this blog is “thought provoking,” or something to that effect. Nothing could please me more, and I invite you to explore the content of this blog and add your comments.
My name is Judy Allen. I am a student of truth, an observer of culture, an idea collector, a dot-connector and a communicator. Jesus is my teacher and my Lord. I hold a BA in Business Administration from Valparaiso University and a Master of Arts in Communication and Culture from Trinity Graduate School in Deerfield, IL. When I’m not blogging, I serve as Teaching Director for a Community Bible Study group.
I write largely to clarify my own thinking, but also to…
offer opportunity for discussion
to invite us all to look for God in the ordinary stuff of life
and to seek truth and glorify God.
I’d be delighted if you would subscribe to this blog and add your wisdom and perspectives to the discussions.
Connections to God are all around us, and I look forward to finding them with you!

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” Psalm 19:1-4
