LIGHT : may

May 29, 2015

The month of May has been so good to me as far as feeling lighter. It started out rough, but once I decided to change my attitude, refocus my priorities, and let some things go, everything turned around. Maybe partially coincidence, but I’m going with it! spiritual Recently I’ve benefitted a lot spiritually from my revamped morning routine, which I will be sharing more about next week. I now rarely miss my morning Bible study/prayer time and that makes a big difference. I just finished Beth Moore’s study “Stepping Up” about the Psalms of ascent. I really enjoyed it, and now I’m wondering what my next study will be. I am always working on praying more continually throughout my day…

Without further ado, here are photos of all the pages, if you’d like to see, and a little more info at the end. As you can see, I kept it very simple and repeated the same techniques over and over. My process went like this: 1. Choose and order photos, place them in the pockets. 2. Type up journaling (I did this in Photoshop Elements), cut it out and place in pockets. 3.

LIGHT : april (one little word update)

May 6, 2015

I don’t have a whole lot to report about my journey with my word for the year except that for most of April I was definitely not feeling light. It was a super hard month of parenting and I wasn’t feeling proud of the way I handled the stress.
