  Change the Way You Look at “FEAR” “What Did I Learn Today?  I learned how to change the way I look at fear.” As a journal writing Practitioner, I am constantly sharing tips on the many styles of journal writing and how this thought-provoking practice serves as a tool for self-reflection, personal growth and

Who Said Following Christ Would Be Easy?

Following Christ does not mean that our lives won’t be thrown off course. It just means we have what we need to get back on track. “I did not come to make life easy for you; that is not my goal.” For those of you who thought that following Christ would be easy, these are the

Your Decision to Give Up Power Is Costing You

The decision to turn your power over to someone else is a costly one. Let me show you how to take it back! We don’t intentionally make the decision to hand our power over to someone else, but many of us do it and without even realizing it.  Let me give you an example: The other

Who Gets You….Really?

You may be surprised at your response to this question (or maybe not).

Release Your Inner Boundaries Through Journaling

As I prepare for a Q & A Journaling Party tonight on a live call with several journalers who are at different places in their lives as it relates to their journal writing experience, I can’t help but get excited.

What Makes You Any Different Than Moses?

I am constantly reminded through my scripture reading that our purpose is not an easy undertaking.  Anyone who fulfilled God’s purpose for their lives as indicated throughout the Bible DID NOT have an easy time of it. What makes us any different? Here’s just one example:  One “fiery” day, Moses was in the presence of
