I have been encouraging you to journal. Hear how my journaling led to publishing 2 books on Amazon through this youtube video h
Or….. read it here.
Hi, TerryAnn here. I have my hot cup
of tea, It’s rather cold with lots of snow here in the Midwest.
While I am sitting back, relaxing and enjoying my tea I was just thinking
that I asked all of you to start doing some journaling and to join me on this
journey of journaling For the last few weeks I have given you a prompt – just
something to think about when you sit down to write.
Whether you use that prompt or go on
to something else is irrelevant. What’s important is that you are starting to
just look within yourself. Start to write and don’t worry about grammar, don’t worry
about punctuation, don’t even worry about the flow. Just write.
How are you doing?
As my husband and I were talking
about this earlier I was reminded that it was journaling that led me to writing
and publishing on Amazon two books.
The first one is “The Proverbs 31 Woman: God’s Work in Progress” and the other one titled “Stitched in Christ”
Both of these books came from journal
entries that I made. I enjoy knitting and crochet. It was during some difficult times I was playing
with my yarn that got me started. I
pulled out some yarn, all knotted tangled up. A part of my journal entry that
day was how this knotted yarn reflected how I felt right then.
Fast forward a few years. I’m looking back over my journal entries and
all of a sudden it hit me. There was a theme. Several of these I then edited
and put out there for others to read. From here I created the “Knit and Crochet
Bible Study”. These books then came from those writings which then I posted on Amazon
in book form.
I just want to share with you that you
know there is so much within you that you don’t even know where all of this is leading
Take the time to journal. Look deep
within yourself. This is between you and God; between you and yourself. Nobody else has to
see these – unless one day down the road you get this bright idea to publish
your thoughts into books and put them on Amazon.
If you’re interested in the books, go to Amazon and look them up.
Even if you don’t keep journaling, go
ahead and make some comments. I’d love
to hear how journaling is working for you.
Until next time, enjoy your cup of tea and stay warm.
