COVID-19 quarantine has been in effect for weeks now and if you're anything like me then you're starting to go a little stir crazy, am I right? One fun thing to do that I never really seemed to have time for before is journaling. Weird, since I design journals, but it's true. Life gets in the way. But one of the positives of this quarantine time is that it has forced everyone to slow down and enjoy the little things that normally get pushed to the wayside. But journaling is not only a time filler, it's great for our minds as well!
As I research and write my first nonfiction Christian book, "Warrior Princess: Claim Your Identity in Christ", I wanted to start reaching out to women all over the world to encourage them and help them through trials and tough times, or even just daily struggles. I decided the best way to do that was to make a companion website to the book.
For the last month I have been rereading the Bible cover-to-cover for verses to include in my upcoming nonfiction book "Warrior Princess: Claiming Your Identity in Christ". The book is going to take a look at the dual traits and personalities the Father and Son say we are to be, specifically as women. #WarriorPrincess
I thought I would take the time to write up a little bit about my experience with the Daniel Fast. Our church does it together every January and this is my first time attempting it fully. Last year, I fasted coffee, and I thought that was hard! The Daniel Fast diet is extremely restricting- no meat, no dairy, no sugars, no caffeine, only whole wheats, veggies, fruits, brown rice.
Today is New Year's Eve. I'm sure everyone has fantastic plans for the evening, whether it's going out to a fancy party downtown with friends or just staying at home with family to watch the ball drop on TV (which happen to be my plans!) I am also taking a hard look at 2018, all the blessings I received in what I'm deeming the best year of my life so far, and thinking about how I would like 2019 to turn out, what I want to be different, what I want to stay the same, and what I have the ability to change myself.
