Let us take better care of our bodies, minds, and souls in a new way. Be intentional about self-care throughout the day particularly if you are having a life-altering event or in a transition. We will never be worn out much less give up.

We will undoubtedly have stamina

for the road trip of life.


“Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.” Isaiah 40:31
By executing a detailed self-care plan, we will choose life-giving options. We will then move forward in life with great optimism, vitality, and energy.

Maintaining a balanced lifestyle is beneficial. Our family and friends will undoubtedly notice the difference and appreciate our efforts at the end of the day.


Journaling the slow rhythms of self-care with a faithful God is an intentional decision.
The author, Adriana Morales Spokane, made a choice to embark in this new journey. So, can you!

“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self-indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.” Audre Lorde. 

Consistency is an issue for most of us. A self-monitoring system will help us build purposeful routines. When we create routine, we increase a sense of predictability and decrease the level of uncertainties in our lives.
Over time, daily routines become habits so let us make healthier choices today.


Be intentional. Be wise. Be consistent. Choose Health.

Health is a commodity so let us handle it with great care without further delay or excuses.

Aren’t we always navigating thru the ins and outs of life? Strategizing or problem-solving our next steps? Acquiring new skills to advance in our careers, be better parents at home or be reliable in our servant role in ministry? 

When completing “Be Refreshed: Journaling the Rhythms of Intentional Self-Care with a Faithful God,” keep an open mind. Extend grace to yourself every day. Take time to study God’s word. Carve the time to reflect. Be prayerful. Do not give up. If you fall behind or skip a day, do not worry. Start all over again the next day. His mercies are abundant at sunrise and in Him, there is no condemnation. 

Faith Journaling is the process of writing personal reflections and observations in the presence of Jesus. It is a guided process led by the Holy Spirit once we have invited and accepted Jesus Christ into our hearts. The Holy Spirit will guide us through the journaling process. He teaches, guides, and convicts us to walk in His steps and be more like Jesus. We want to be ‘doers’ of His Word and take better care of ourselves along the way. This journal will help you reflect and pray over selected Scriptures whether you are sitting at a kitchen table, taking a lunch break, waiting in line to pick-up your child from school or drinking a cup of coffee at a local café. 

Faith Journaling is unique in its focus though. The Faith journaling process undoubtedly unravels a wide range of truths about us and deepens our relationship with the Lord. Journaling His Word renews our minds, refreshes the soul, softens our hearts, and will forever transform our lives one day at a time. The spiritual growth is undeniable, visible, and palpable. Faithful and consistent journalers do grow closer to God. 

A close relationship with the Lord protects our hearts against the enemies of the soul; fear, doubt, hatred, bitterness, unforgiveness and envy. Be mindful of these enemies of the soul, they can lead to spiritual bankruptcy if they are undetected, denied or not processed in a timely manner.

A faith, self-monitoring tool for Self-Care is coming soon to Amazon.

God’s Word shapes our lives.

“Therefore, we never stop thanking God that when you received his message from us, you didn’t think of our words as mere human ideas. You accepted what we said as the very word of God—which, of course, it is. And this word continues to work in you who believe.”
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The Lord is our Physician.

1-2 Please, God, no more yelling,
no more trips to the woodshed.
Treat me nice for a change;
I’m so starved for affection.

2-3 Can’t you see I’m black-and-blue,
beat up badly in bones and soul?
God, how long will it take
for you to let up?

Psalm 6:1-3

Our Bodies as Living Sacrifice.

“Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.”

‭Romans‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭AMP
