Southern Charm's Devotion Journaling

For those of you who enjoy devotional time, I would like to introduce you to Jennifer at Her Southern Charm.  I have followed Jennifer's blog for a long time and follow her on Twitter as well.  Recently, I started following her on Instagram {HerSouthernCharm}.  She features the most awesome photos of her devotion journaling, with the best "doodling" ever!

"Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed!"


Journaling is something Jennifer has always done.  She loves creative writing and "doodling"...well, she calls it "doodling" but I call it art!  Jennifer likes to start with Jenni Beck Journals.


Here favorite writing pens are Papermate Liquid Expresso Pens {medium point}. She also likes Papermate Felt Tip Pens.




~PRAYER JOURNAL~
Jennifer and her husband always pray together before bedtime.  Recently, they noticed that they just kept praying for the same things/people all the time.  This is also a habit I have...it's like I have a standard list.  They decided to make a monthly list of things they will pray for so they'll have something different each night.  She designed the blank calendars on Word and then set out to make their prayer list...complete with her "doodles."




~DEVOTION JOURNAL~
Jennifer's journals record her thoughts and spiritual insight...complete with her "doodling!"  Here are a few of my favorites.

"Let go."  What do you need to let go of so you can have room in your heart for mercy and compassion?


"His mercies are new every morning!  How lucky we are."

"Walk right and live in obedience.  A prayer for those that feel like outcasts.  If God says you belong, then you belong!"


"Persistence in prayer:  Ask, Search, and Knock and be persistent!"


My favorite..."I will...be up by 8 am, dressed by 10 am, and cheerfully wear an apron!  The thing is, if I don't choose to find the time to get dressed, and ready for the day, I waste so many opportunities the day has offer."
~Sarah Mae


Now I have a cute Lilly Pulitzer journal and my own devotion book to follow.  So I headed over to Office Depot for some cute pens.  Well, it turns out that I'm just NOT the cute doodler Miss Jennifer is.  So, I'll continue with my devotions but also plan to follow Jennifer's inspiring entries!
