We have a surprise SHINE girl weekday give-away!

Remember the 1000 blessings journal I told you about? Are you doing it?

If you are, are you loving it? It sure keeps my focus in the HERE and NOW.

So, here's how to win the prize....

Tell someone about the 1000 blessings journal. If you can, buy them a small journal to keep with them. Bless them with this gift of keeping up and noticing their blessings throughout the day!

I've seen several of you talk about it on Facebook already! Way to spread the word, girls!

When you tell someone, comment under this post and leave your name. You will be entered in the drawing to win a beautiful hand-made piece of jewelry! I will post pics soon...

Let me just say that you will want this prize!! I wish I could enter!

So, go tell someone girls!

A BIG thank you to our SHINE girl Michelle Chapman for our prize this week! More info on the prize soon....

Go, tell some folks! The drawing will end sometime next week...that will be a SURPRISE too!

happy journaling,

    Shared with a friend out of town. Love staying focused and positive counting my blessings when things seem out of control. It is great to remember who is in control! So thankful- also having my children do, you are never to young to count your blessings!

    I think we should be grateful for every little blessing, for example waking up another day or taking another breath. God is just a blessing in my life and I want him to be a part of so many others lives too! -Jasmine

    Today I encouraged a friend of mine to pull out her journal and write down a few more blessings in her life. Sometimes it's easy to look around at others and focus on our circumstances and look up to Jesus.

    1. Recommended this to Jack's teacher as I told her she was a huge gift on my list! Love this challenge!!

  13. I challenged all the girls in my office (they loved it :) ) I also ordered the book for my mom for mothers day and I am going to buy a journal and prsonalize it to go with it. So Blessed!!

  14. I'm sharing this with my BFF! She shares her blessings with me ALL the time and it just tickles me to death ... can't wait to read her 1000 Blessings, because I know we'll find tons of things that she's forgotten to tell me :)

    i have encouraged my mom to start her list! we talk about the SHINE girls all the time. it has been such a blesssing in my life as it is hard to remind yourself to stay diligent with your Walk with CHrist! ready this blog is a daily task that i look forward to when the house is quiet and i am joined by the sweet little noises of my sleeping children (and my hubby too). thanks jill for keeping me on track.

    best to you all SHINEgirls,
