It’s been November for exactly one week. I’m currently loving the fall colors, even with all the recent downpours trying to wash them away! October was a great month with a much needed slightly slower pace. I didn’t blog as much as anticipated, but I feel much of the content wasn’t ready yet and I had to learn to be okay with that. As a fact, I’m still working hard to get a few things (including some pretty cool freebies) ready for y’all. And today is #ThrowbackThursday! How appropriate.
Maybe this month can be your chill month! Don’t over-think things, and spend more time with Jesus. I promise that’s going to make a huge difference.
Devotional journaling is a great way to express what you’re feeling, write down thoughts, prayers, favorite or impact-ful scripture, ideas, and all kinds of other things. I like to use my journal as a space where I can put down anything.
In my previous devotional journals, I wrote a lot of scripture and little thoughts I had about them. But I rarely pick them back up and read them. Why? Because they’re so bland and boring.

Another exciting thing about fall? Inktober!
Officially speaking, Inktober is where artists all over the world, take on the challenge of creating a piece of artwork done with ink, every single day for the month of October and post it on social media with the hashtag, #Inktober. It’s a pretty cool trend. Drawing every day stimulates the mind and helps it become more creative.
Obviously, I haven’t shared anything for the first half of October. Mostly because I’ve been busy working on a new mini course that will be coming out sometime in the near future. I’m not setting any deadlines yet, but I’ll keep y’all updated! That doesn’t necessarily mean I didn’t create any ink projects (though I’ll admit it wasn’t every day!) during that time. I have been trying out my skills with handwritten quotes and words. It’s extremely popular, so I decided to try it. It is so much fun and not difficult at all. I think just about anyone can do it.
