Ellie Claire Art Journals {review}

I adore material that spurs one forward to being creative.  I know the vast amount of books in doing so are many. Where do you start? Would you like it? Is it perfect for anyone no matter their skill level? It can truly be a big decision if buying for yourself and especially if you are aiming to purchase such items for a friend or loved one. That is why today, I am spotlighting and sharing my thoughts upon the  Ellie Claire Art Journals.

30 Days to Joy: A One-Month Creative Journal {Review and Gift Idea!}

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law.
—Galatians 5:22–23

30 Days to Joy: A One-Month Creative Journal is a great tool to inspire, remind, and encourage self-expression. I believe if the time is taken with the pages of this book, that one will rediscover what brings Joy so that we may lead a more holy and Christ-filled life that serves as a witness to those around us. Happiness comes and goes but joy, oh joy, is the feeling that only God can fill us with. The joy of the Lord is our strength through the good and the bad.  We have so much to be joyful about and I feel that we need to be reminded of the Lord’s promises and truths revolving around joy every single day.
