We traveled all over the country before settling back home and I have never been happier to be surrounded by family! I have always had a passion for capturing the little details I want to remember 10 years from now. When I discovered paper scrapbooking through Studio Calico in the summer of 2012 I fell in love with the whole process but it wasn’t until I started using my journaling bible that I really felt the meaning behind what I was creating. I was extremely nervous to share my new form of worship as I wasn’t sure how people would react to it. Looking back, I am so glad that I listened to the whisper that God put on my heart to share with you all, because from the moment I shared that first post on my blog (in early 2014) it has been a wildfire that just keeps growing. By sharing that I was documenting my faith right there in my bible, it turned the light bulb on for so many women… “YES!!! it’s okay to use the gifts God has given you to glorify HIM!”.
