This year, I’m using the Present Over Perfect Guided Journal. I read Shauna Neiquist’s Present Over Perfect book when it came out a few years ago and so much of it just connected with me. When I saw she had created a journal, I knew it was right for this season of my life. The journal has small excerpts from the book and prompts to help you think, reflect, and write. I’ll be sharing some of the prompts and my responses.
Prompt (pg. 55): Write down what you know deep inside yourself…
This is what I love… I love Jesus and my family. I love adventure. I love reading and watching movies. I love good stories. I love sharing life wisdom with those who are younger than me.
This is what’s true about me… I am loved just as I am. I have gifts and talents the world needs. I am not perfect and that is ok. I am weaker than I want to realize. I am stronger than I think. I am smart and capable.
These are my dreams…
- write a book
- speaking to groups outside of the local church
- our family making an impact on our community
- use our home for hosting and hospitality
Dear ones, be brave and share how you would finish those sentences. I can’t wait to hear what you know.
