My Journaled Life The Linkup | 01

I’m so excited that you’re back! I’m most excited to read your posts and journal excerpts and think you’ll appreciate the February prompts. Here are my responses to the January prompts.

At first, I wasn’t going to jump on the BestNine2015 bandwagon and then…I did…and I’m glad I did. After taking less than 5 minutes to follow the steps and three days of leaving the photo in my phone’s folder, I decided to share it on New Year’s Eve day. At first, I was stuck on the fact that […]


I’ve been wrestling lately with wanting to apologize for the ways I parent my son. The things I do to shore him up, build him up in the Lord and invest in his heart for God and his future wife and children. I was sweating feeling as if the things I’ve done (and that have […]

After week two (last weekend) the phrase I’m […]

Oh dear Facebook, dear, dear Facebook… I think it’s time and you know it. I’ve been wrestling with you and me for weeks now. Wondering why I was showing up and giving over so many valuable minutes to you (even with 9 months of social media free weekends). You know you weren’t adding value to […]

DIY Perpetual Journal

Last December, my son and I visited a high school friend of mine who lives in California. We chose to visit after Christmas and to ring in the New Year together. It was a wonderful four and half days of warmer weather, reflection and dreaming. Every morning, I would get up and get a cup […]
