Coming up


If you’ve visited here for any length of time, then you know I rarely write to a plan. I tend to run a muck on the virtual page, so while I try to always point towards either resting, reflecting, or refilling, I don’t know that I always succeed. Sometimes I find it helpful to write to a specific topic, as I did last October when I wrote 31 days to Finding Freedom. This October, I plan to join in the 31 days writing project/initiative/link up/craziness and add my voice to the chorus.

I hope you’ll join me for 31 days of Encouragement for the Journey. I realize it’s a mouthful, and I worry it might sound a bit self-help-y, but seeing as I’m no Dr. Phil and people rarely ask for my advice, I think we’re safe. I’m a regular woman with everyday issues and I’m writing just as much to myself as I am to you. Our journeys will look different, but our destination is essentially the same. We want to live with honor and courage and more than a little hope. We want to smile at today and laugh at the days to come. And we want to step into eternity knowing we gave this life everything. Absolutely everything.

I hope you’ll consider joining me next Monday for the start of our 31 days together. If you’re taking part in the series as well, leave me a comment with your topic, as I’d love to hear what you have cooking. Unless you’re actually writing about cooking, of which I’m not a fan. I kid, I would love to hear about your topic, even if it makes me feel inferior in the kitchen.

In order to manage your expectations (which surely are low at this point-a mouthful of a topic that may or may not be self-help-y?), know that while I will be posting every day, some days it will be as simple as a photograph or a quote. I hope to have a guest post or two thrown in as well. We’ll see. I hope you will consider joining me on the journey.


  • I am so excited to join all of you in 31 days. I have never done it before but love the blogs of many who do. Still trying to decide what to blog through. Will be praying about it the next couple of days…
