Grief Journal Printable To Help You Heal In A Healthy Way

grief journal for healthy healing from hurt and loss

I can’t lie…

I got emotional while I was creating this grief journal and I’m not even grieving the loss of a loved one.

That’s how powerful these prompts are.

I looked them over and it tore me up thinking about how I might need these prompts one day when I experience the pain of loss.

If you or someone you know is grieving, I truly believe that journaling is an activity that will help them heal.

That is why I created this journal…to help people heal in a healthy way.

You see what many of us want to do when we are wheeling from losing a loved one is bury the pain.

Maybe then the pain will go away.

Maybe then you won’t hurt so bad.

But let me tell you.

That don’t work.

When you are confronted with the pain of a searing loss you will deal with that pain one way or another.

It will either be in a healthy way or an unhealthy way.Continue reading

5 Tools For Christian Women To Conquer Their Day and Be Amazingly Productive

Does it feel like every day whizzes by faster than the day before it? And like our to-do lists get longer and longer no matter how many items we check off of it?

As Christian women, we want to be a good steward of the time God has given us.

We know how precious it is and it can be frustrating when we aren’t able to use time as wisely as we know we should.

I’ve always felt like time was getting away from me.

Like I never had enough time. Like I was always running behind and always late.

But lately, I’ve been really getting into learning about productivity, time management, and goal setting.

It’s really helped me look at time in a different way and I’ve made some changes that have really made a difference in my life and I’ll be sure to share some of that in upcoming posts.

I really hope that my tips will help.

Since learning more about productivity, I’ve been on time (more often than not), I have more time to work on my blogs and pursue my goals, and I feel like my time with my family and friends in more enjoyable because I don’t always feel so behind.

If any of that sounds like a good deal to you and you are intrigued then be checking back in the next few weeks as I will be talking a lot more about these subjects.Continue reading
