31 Days of Dear Diary

This October I’m going back.

I’m diving into my diaries, journals, and prayer journals to visit the girl I once was. To find the parts of her that still exist today. To see how she’s changed. How she grew up.

And mostly I’m looking for the fingerprints of God in my life.

“Dear Diary,” were two words I wrote a lot, but what came after those two words have always been a secret. Until now.

I’m sharing with you my diary entries.

They will either be verbatim or edited to protect the people I love and know and were named in the original pages 😀

Let’s go!

  1. This is such a fun idea! I literally just retrieved all my old journals (2 boxes full!) from my parents’ house last week! Maybe I’ll consider doing something similar…. would you mind?

  2. What a cool idea (and what a brave girl you are!). I occasionally look over my old journals (I’ve been keeping them for 34 years or so) to see where I’ve been and how I’ve changed.

    1. Thank you, Anita. As I hunted down my old journals, I realized I need a box to keep them together! And I’m trying to be brave 🙂 and accept the embarrassing moments I can see are about to come, haha!

I'd love to hear from you!
