Here it is - the final day of 2015 and my year of INSPIRATION! I summed up my thoughts about my word this year in a layout that will go in our 2015 scrapbook.

Journaling reads: My word for 2015 is INSPIRATION, so this sign naturally caught my eye at the Frisco Mercantile. I have to admit that this word has not been as fun or inspiring as my 2014 word! However, I have enjoyed my monthly blog posts and taking time to think about the INSPIRATION I enjoy and how I tend to find and act on the various INSPIRATION in my life.

Here's a list of my favorites from this year of INSPIRATION:

(1) INSPIRATION notebook - I really enjoyed putting this notebook together and having a place to gather INSPIRATION and record what was happening with my word. (See a video walk-through of my notebook HERE.)

(2) Teaching Bible Journaling Workshops - I feel truly blessed to have been able to act on the INSPIRATION to teach numerous Bible Journaling Workshops and introduce others to this FUN and meaningful new hobby.

(3) INSPIRATION A to Z blog series - I loved the challenge of coming up with words and writing in-depth blog posts about how that word relates to INSPIRATION in our lives! THANK YOU to those of you who took time to read through these longer posts and leave such thoughtful and conversational comments!!

What was your favorite INSPIRATION this past year?

Did you have a word for 2015? How did it influence your life?



  1. My recap post just went up. Happy New Year to you as well!

  2. I may not have commented on all your posts this year but have read and thoroughly enjoyed them all! Looking forward to joining you in your journey through life in 2016. Happy New Year!

  3. I have admired your dedication to your word this year and how you have really followed through. Very best wishes for 2016!

  4. Your inspiration posts have been just that: they have got me thinking and I'm so glad you decided to share your thoughts. Oh, and I ordered the Creative Girl book and I have it saved up to open next week. Thank you!

    Wishing you and Robbie all good things for the year ahead

  5. Have to agree with Sian that your inspiration posts were quite inspiring! :)

  6. You had another great year with your OLW this year---as in the precious year of FUN!! Can't wait to see what you are focusing on this year!

  7. I loved reading your post about your word. You had a great year with Inspiration. I haven't picked a word for this year and I'm not sure if I will. My word didn't really stick with me last year, which was a first, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. Looking forward to seeing what your new word brings you. Happy New Year

  8. I love how that page has come together....a perfect ending to your 'inspiring' year.

  9. I'm working on my recap post, as well as my looking-forward post.
    I don't want to rush them, and I need more time to think them through.
    But I really enjoy seeing everybody else's.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
