Welcome to the Daybook Journal. A weekly post here at The Littlest Way where I gather all the ordinary things that happen or are happening in my day to day. Things like what I’m reading or listening to, eating, cleaning, and learning. These are the small moments that make up my blessed daily life and I want to remember them. My prompts may change depending on season and circumstance.
* I’ve written an ebook to guide you through the whys and hows to get started with Bible Journaling, Bible Journaling Tips, Inspiration and Permission, and to encourage and inspire you in your Bible journaling!
Thanking God for…

I am loving my new prayer journal! Video coming soon. Here’s the list of supplies I used:
Carpe Diem Personal Size Planner (Bloom) and my review of it when I used it as a planner.
Carpe Diem Faith Inserts
There are 2 things I wish I would have learned earlier in life. 1. Your attitude is not a reflection of me and therefore doesn’t bother me. 2. Your emotions don’t control me. Look, at some point we have to choose peace regardless of what others are choosing. We will live our lives in constant turmoil if every single person who dislikes even the slightest thing about us is allowed the opportunity to control us. So, assess the situation, make an apology if necessary–seriously, don’t be one of those people who never apologizes. And then move on. Don’t get stuck in someone else’s junk.
For some reason the boys are walking around singing ‘Joy to the World.’ It’s not Christmas and that’s one of my LEAST favorite songs ever! Various children are walking around coughing or sneezing and I’m still stuck on Reckless Love by Cory Asbury.
The One Year Bible – Catholic: NLT
This is my “quantity” Bible to make sure I get the Word inside me each and every day.
Catholic Journaling Bible
This is my study Bible.
I’m going to use the new Illustrated Faith Kit this week to do a page. I love these colors! I cannot decide what verses to journal? The theme is ‘Stronger Together’ which makes me think of friendship which makes me think of the verses in the Book of Sirach, “A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter: he that has found one has found a treasure. There is nothing so precious as a faithful friend, and no scales can measure his excellence. A faithful friend is an elixir of life; and those who fear the Lord will find him.” Sirach 6:14-16
Around the House…
It’s been hot, which means the kids are playing in the hose and little plastic pool, which means swimming towels and wet clothes, which means more laundry. I’m sure someday I am seriously going to miss all my people living here, but I can promise you I will not miss all their blessed laundry!
In the Kitchen…
Just placed my Walmart order and I also need to run by Aldis. Since everyone seems to be struggling with a little early summer cold, we’ve been making lots of Boost Juice. It’s a Trim Healthy Mama recipe: 1t Baobab Powder, 1 donk Stevia, a quart jar filled with ice and water to fill. It is so yummy and a filled with all sorts of good stuff. I drink one after I exercise.
I have not been consistently working out since I hurt my shoulder and toe separately. I can tell. My mind had been a little racier and I’ve just felt unsettled. I believe I’m completely healed now so I will get back on track faithfully this week. Veronica has her college summer training program and I keep telling her I’ll work out with her. Still waiting for my invitation, lol!
(I purchase my essential oils from Amazon or Edens Garden instead of a distributor. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member with FREE shipping, Edens Garden has FREE shipping all the time in the US.)

Veronica’s competitive soccer team has been invited to Nationals in Aurora, Colorado. I don’t suppose anyone here lives in Aurora and has an empty bed for 4 days in July???
Good Morning from the front porch. One is reading, one is “whittling” and I’m saying my morning prayers… Prayer for My Husband Lord I ask you to please guard, guide, and protect Chris today. I pray that everything he does today will bring him in closer friendship with you. Give him the strength, courage, and determination to be Your light in a darkened world, bringing others to know, love and serve you… You can find the whole prayer, plus one for ourselves and one for our children at The Littlest Way, click on “Prayer Journaling”
