Hello there!
I have been a Catholic my whole life but am looking for a way to strengthen my spiritual life. I go to church each Sunday and go to a Catholic prep school, but whenever I try to read the Bible or a devotional, I space out and unintentionally skip lines or sections. I really, truly want to have God be in every part of my life, but He doesn’t cross my mind too often (sadly). Does anyone have any tips on how I might be able to become “on fire”? Thanks so much and God bless!

Hmmm well, could you try perhaps finding something that helps you concentrate in general? Or finding some really cool orchestral hymns (I found an AWESOME playlist of Catholic Renaissance music on 8tracks I can link you to) to make the atmosphere more inviting. Or so it after exercising so that your mind is sharp and your blood is pouding. Also, consider doing things like praying out loud or reading out loud. It’ll keep you from spacing out because you have to SAY the words. Maybe light some prayer candles and focus on the light.
I’m Catholic too, and sometimes it’s so hard to concentrate on life in general, but I do my best for my faith.

Maybe you could find another Christian denomination and hang out at that church, go to a Bible Study, Youth/Young adult group. They can tell you about the denomination and such and you can learn from them.

Marystrublood and pjbaseballgirl, thanks so much for all of the ideas! I like the ideas of having music and such while reading out loud (will definitely try soon 🙂 ). I am also going to start going to youth group more often too. Thanks for all your help, everybody!
