Hi, I’m Jenny and I’m addicted to pretty journals, pens, highlighters and Pins featuring colorful scripture journals. I want to journal Bible quotes…but I can’t. It’s not that I don’t try–believe me I do. It’s not that I don’t have the right tools–believe me I do. Ahem, I visit office supply stores and the school supply aisle like some women seek out good chocolate or great shoes. I think it’s my perfectionist tendencies. Yep, I think my inner perfect–who my husband wishes would show herself useful around the house–that keeps me from journaling inspiring Bible quotes. Ever wanted a peak into my mind? Keep reading and you’ll understand why I can’t journal Bible quotes…
I am so excited to share the Daily Advent Devotional for Women with you. I want to encourage you to remember who you are in Christ–which is a passion of mine–as you prepare for His birth. I pray this devotional will bless you. I enjoyed writing it a couple of years ago and I very much enjoyed re-visiting it lately as I updated it. Read the devotional on any device that supports PDF’s (which may be all at this point) or print it and bind it. I took mine to the office supply store and had it comb bound for around $3, coil binding is a bit more and of course if you have it printed there the price will increase. I would love to hear your reflections on the devotional. Let’s chat in the comments here, or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

My first post after my 31 Days Writing Challenge where I read and blogged through the book of Sirach and I’m going to quote from Sirach again! Today I want to consider inspiring Bible quotes. I was recently reading The Way by St Josemaria Escriva and came across this quote where he compares barnyard hens to eagles.
A couple of years ago my sister and I each decorated a canvas to hang in our homes. Mine started out being a “Family Rules” canvas. After I was finished and hung it on our wall, a visiting priest commented on how it read more like a nightly “Family Examen” rather than a “Family Rules” board.
We’ve used it “officially” as a nightly examen after family rosary, but lost the habit some where along the way. I regret that and have vowed to pick it back up. Not only pick it back up, but tie it to the Word of God…win-win.
