Be Courageous!

My last painting in 2021

2021 was the year I met the most broken version of me BUT also the strongest 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

As I continued adapting to CDC guidelines and limiting my participation in social gatherings, I had no travel plans, and missed a precious and memorable wedding in South Florida.

Having to take calculated risks and altering the way I socialize due to the global pandemic, I experienced the greatest amount of isolation, loneliness and high levels of anxiety to say the least… I 🔜 realized that if you don’t reach out to people when sheltered at home, no one will ever notice your existence…

Taking the first COVID-19 shot and leaving a traditional full time job were the most scary thing I’ve ever done in years…

Finding out your husband had an unexpected heart condition and hearing three doctors say, he could have had an heart attack or even a massive stroke was quite alarming to say the least and facing mortality was a rude awakening when it hit so close to home and no one to turn to…

But GOD never leaves us nor abandon us!!!
He is a faithful God who gives us strength, comfort, peace and healing ❤️‍🩹

“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭5:3-5‬ ‭ESV‬‬

I finally celebrate 🎉 2021 as I begin a new year!
I am forever grateful for…

A Faithful and Loving God,
Hubby’s successful heart surgery,
Long-term friendships and loving family,
Remote nationwide career opportunities,
Virtual communities,
The Bible Reading Journal Series
Great opportunities to paint, exercise, intimate conversations with genuine people, and most importantly His Word to comfort and guide us along the way.

Life happens and we all can choose either ‘be defeated’ or thrive amidst adversity.

I chose to thrive and grow stronger in my Faith.
I cannot wait to see what the future holds with a loving, compassionate and faithful God 💓

In Spring 2022, I will be publishing my next journal with all valuable lessons in how to manage anxiety and will be sharing quite a few personal experiences along the way.

“The Bible Reading Journal Series: Journaling the Rhythms of Thriving Habits with a Faithful God” will be published in the Spring 2022.

Be ready to confront your fears in a new practical ways!

Coming Soon 🔜 at Amazon.

Next Publication

  1. Grateful for your virtual friendship. We are truly sister’s in similar “boats”. Larry has been in hospital twice I. The last 2 months with cardiac issues. Grateful for God’s grace, goodness and compassion. We truly found “grace to help in time of need”. Looking forward to 2022 and being “All In” for Jesus. Thank you for the time and detail you put into the journals. Love the colorful journal covers.
