Transcend, Manifest, Celebrate

“If you do a good job for others, you heal yourself at the same time,
because a dose of joy is a spiritual cure. It transcends all barriers.”

Three new vision journals for Madison, Katie and Maria — girlfriends who are working toward big goals in life. (Junior high! High school cheer!! Citizenship!) Making these last night felt as good as a long, hard run after a week of no exercise. I’ve got to make more time to be creative, even when busy. I’m not honoring myself otherwise. Sharing the vision journal idea has been so satisfying. I’m so glad so many of you have received yours in the mail or created one on your own! Luke 11:9-12 gives me extra skip in my step when doing this kind of internal housekeeping.

  6. Those are great! I hope your new job is going well. Just wanted to let you know that your former housekeeping job is much appreciated here in 4th grade. We are on our second mural for English Language Development. Sadly I forgot to take a picture of the garden mural. What was I thinking??? This one is on water use. The kids are so clever with the fabric and other materials. Thanks again so much!

  7. What a nice gift to give! And they all look really cute too.

  8. love the quote!

  9. Those look so fun! I was at Target today and saw comp books on clearance for 12 cents each. I didn’t buy any because I didn’t know what I’d do with them. Now I know! And hopefully they’ll have some left tomorrow.

    Thanks for the inspiration Kelli. 🙂

  10. I LOVE the vision journal idea. What a great creative project and wonderful gift for friends! I want to know more about what kinds of things you personally would put in there. It seems to me like it would be things inspiring or goals. Is that right?

    Great idea!

  11. Nice mentoring work with the vision journals and their intended recipients. I think that gestures like yours create such self-confidence and, well, just make people feel special and noticed.

  12. Very inspiring…I love the quote at the top. YOur blog is always such a positive experience. 🙂
