Hey JJ readers!
Just swinging by to say hi & updating you what’s happening for JJ this year 😉
❤ Podcasts: I’ve decided and realised I should be more realistic rather than super ambitious – a podcast a month on JJ radio 😉 Given it’s time consuming to write, record and edit 😉 Who knows? Maybe one day there’ll be a JJ radio!
❤ Book reviews: will come as I read those awesome books from What’s in JJ’s bookshelf!
❤ Guest posts: would ❤ to collaborate with you awesome writers/bloggers!
Stayed tuned for the 1st JJ podcast of 2018! 😉 Faith in the woods, inspired by my late night adventure in December =)
No matter where you’ve been, whatever has happened, love always prevails.

For future generations.
In Matt Appling’s Life after Art book, he shares that all humans have this innate desure to create. After all, God is the Creator and breathed life into us. So naturally we have this yearn to create beautiful and incredible things.
In life there will be times when we lose inspiration and motivation. Albeit it could be down to slipping back into the work routine feeling. Whenever it feels like that, Paul Angone’s Allgroanup blog always comes to the rescue! When you lose inspiration is on point. It’s normal to feel that way sometimes and we all do 😉 After all, no one has got everything figured out. No matter the age.
Living the simple life is what God intends for us.
As a planner, I love to keep busy to keep myself occupied to the extent where the thought of doing nothing is unheard of.
These are the words that pretty much guided my entire gap year of 2012! The world honestly needs more World Class Christians 😉 (not to be confused with Wordly Christians).

The story of The Joy Journalist goes way back to 2013 and was inspired by awesome 20something blogger and author Paul Angone in his 101 Secrets for your 20’s (highly recommend the book! 😉 It was the last secret- the best secret for your 20’s are the ones your discover for yourself. So here we are!
A collection of my life stories from when I was 18, all the way till now- 22. Way back when, the original name of the blog was actually Saving Grace, which later changed to randomthoughtsofa20something (whew, that was one long blog title!) But both didn’t that really capture the quintessence of why I was writing.
Till 2016. The Joy Journalist- a smiley dreamer at heart. 😉
Relentless daydreamer with optimism despite the odds 😉
To inspire hope, faith, to give encouragement and uppage, share prayers, light and <3.
That is my quintessence.
