How to Stick with Journaling.

Are you journaling the wrong way? I am OBSESSED with journaling. Hands down, I think it’s the best way to sort through and process emotions, ideas, feelings… basically: Everything. But whenever I talk about journaling, I hear the same comments over and over: “I have a TON of empty journals sitting on a bookshelf!” “I’ve tried, but can never seem to stick with it!” “It’s just NOT my thing.” Maybe instead of deciding that it just doesn’t work for you… have you ever considered that maybe you're journaling the WRONG way? You see; Everybody is different. We have different learning styles, different ways...

How to get ready to set goals.

Do you feel like goal setting is only for people who own a business or have big dreams? Do you think that your dreams are too small (or crazy)? Maybe you feel like the place you’re at in life doesn’t allow time for setting goals — much less achieving them. You’re too busy wiping snotty noses or working 50 hours a week. You're too TIRED to have bigger dreams, right?

I go into the New Year with such high hopes, only to realize half-way through January that I can't do ALL THE THINGS. And if you DO attempt to do all the things, you usually fizzle out. Amiright? New Year's Resolutions are complicated and stressful.  So when I heard of "Word of the Year" awhile ago, I was instantly curious. I looked it up as soon as my Mom mentioned it, and this is what I learned: Instead of...

JOURNALING PLANNING

How I use my Journal and Planner Together.

Hey friend! How's your fall going so far? For me, I'm ready for FALL!  It's October, our oldest is THRIVING in kindergarten, and this seems like a GREAT time to talk about journaling and planning. Because... I do both of these things simultaneously, and I can't do without EITHER. (So it only makes sense to talk about them BOTH.) 😆 Prefer to listen? Click below!   I have been journaling for 18 years. WOW, that's a long time. 😮 I started journaling when I was 12, and if I'm being honest: I'm really glad I threw all those old journals away....

3 things you should write in your journal every morning.

Today I want to share what I do for my morning quiet time. (Although, let's be honest, it's not always very quiet, especially if the kids wake up early! 😜) Since I was about 12, I've used journaling as a HUGE part of my faith. I'm a Jesus girl, so the first thing I do (after getting a cup of coffee!) is read my Bible & journal. I use my journal as a way to pray, ask questions, and find answers. I've also learned a TON about habits, mindset, and a few years ago started implementing a set of questions...
