Resources I love

Writing and deep soul journaling saved me and kept me sane when I was miserable and hurting in an abusive marriage and once I was transitioning to rediscover me. The words that flowed from my pen giving me purpose and direction.  I’m now a journaling addict and sold on the belief that a good book can change a person’s life. I think reading good material makes it possible to become better versions of ourselves, especially if we apply what we learn. I have found these books on journaling, writing and an enriched spiritual life very helpful.
