Gut-level honesty is vulnerable and scary–a bit like walking into a room with no pants on. It takes a special kind of courage and holds a special kind of power that leads to a form of intimacy with yourself and with God.
Today I welcome Jennifer Dukes Lee. She has written a beautiful guided journal that will push your limits of vulnerability and self-reflection. It will plumb the depths of your history. It will help you understand what makes you tick and what ticks you off.
This journal offers you space to write what you believe to be true and the truths you’ve reconsidered. It’s a place to record all the outlandish and outrageous things that make you you. This is a fantastic conversation about asking the right questions.
- How her book helps those of us who find journaling to be difficult or unnatural
- How to use journaling as a spiritual practice.
- What to do if you’re afraid to write your honest answers on paper
- How our lives are like a “patch of earth”
- Why it’s important to “mark your scars”
- And a fun This or That rapid fire with Jennifer
