Four Questions

So, I knew going in that this was going to be a different kind of Christian book – answering this seems unfair to Ken. Keep this in mind as I answer the questions. 1 – the books has numerous scriptures in it to support the ideas Ken brings up. So, yes, but most it was…

Daisies

I love the things of God, the things of eternity. I love spending time with Him each morning reading, pondering, and writing in my art bullet journal thoughts and quotes and inspiration. I love sitting at my desk with George Winston (20th Anniversary) playing softly in the background and my candle quietly crackling (WoodWick candles…

The Book is Great, I’m Just Not

I’m not sure why, but the past few days have been rough and I can’t seem to get my meds to kick in enough to settle me. I dislike this part, the not knowing. I didn’t like it when I was a new parent and had no idea what the baby wanted and now, I’m…

Magic in the Air

In this part of the book he is discussing “divergent” thinking, which he describes as “the capacity to interpret a question in multiple ways or imagine multiple answers to the same question.” He then uses this…

Change Brings Possibility

Creativity

You know how sometimes you might be working through something in your life that you are completely stuck on or cannot get through (or let go) and then – WHAM – you read something, or a few somethings in a row, that seem to make no sense separately, but completely answers the problem from just…

New Book Monday

Let me introduce you to… This book is so not what generally jumps off the shelf at me. Well, not at first glance. After spending a bit of time jumping ahead and doing some reading (I couldn’t wait), it is all about inspiration and I love that idea for a two week study! I can’t wait…
