I have been journaling for the past thirty years. Wow, that’s a lot of writing!

Here’s why I continue:

*Journaling helps me put things in perspective. When I write, I gain clarity of thought.

*Journaling helps me jettison a lot of emotional baggage. I talk to God about what I write.

*Journaling gives me a record of where I’ve been. At the end of every year I read through the previous year’s journal. It’s amazing to watch how God has been at work in my life.

*Journaling leaves a record for my children. By God’s grace, my children will learn from, be encouraged by, and both laugh and cry at my life of adventure.
