Welcome to Connecting Dots to God, which is 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 writing, I work at the local library, love to cook delicious meals, get together with family and friends, take a walk, ride a bike, or travel.
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.
My life is pretty ordinary on the surface, but in my heart, it is an extraordinary adventure with God. I am so thankful to be living it with my husband, Dan, and our family.
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
Judy, Thank you for your comment on my post, “When light meets the dark.” For some reason, most of my replies aren’t posting correctly today so I thought I’d communicate with you here. I truly appreciate your encouragement. I’m happy to hear that you are doing well too. As a cancer survivor, you are a testimony of God’s goodness. Thank you again!
You liked one of posts, so I came snooping. I’m interested. I see some “though-provoking” items I must get around to reading 🙂
Judy, this is a wonderful mission you are on. Sometimes God speaks through “anonymous angels.” Lucky are those who have the power to recognize and hear that voice.
Hello Judy! I look forward to really diving into your blog as you connect the dots. Also, thank you for following my blog at Faith1st Ministries. I hope it has and will continue to be a major blessing in your life. May God richly bless you as you continue to write and blog. Please continue with us on this journey and remember to have Faith 1st because the “just shall live by his faith.” — Sebastian
