Just another regular Sunday relaxing in my room scrolling through my Instagram as usual, when this interesting promo propped up. And it immediately caught my eye. What was the 60/40 challenge? Jumping over to their Instagram profile, I instantly clicked on the link in their bio to pique my curiosity.
Yesterday I was chatting to one of my good friends that I met late last year in my short stint in the Animation course and was blown away by her maturity and wisdom at such a young age! Gabby’s only 18, is already amazingly talented in her drawings, inspirational stories and messages across her social media and is always so smiley! Not to mention incredibly insightful in our Christian growth =) *Yup, the post above is all hers!

Saw this the other day while I was chilling at my fave @starbucksau 😉 couldn’t help but smile and snap the moment. One more letter, and it would have read Saviour & Grace 😉 To this I add, ❤ & Grace every day. Cause in life you will come across some people for no rational reason is taking out their negativity on you even when it has absolutely nothing to do with you. One of my guy colleagues asked me; how do I manage to work in a male dominated industry as a female and cope with all the incoming demands being in the customer service centred project role? And still remain smiley and optimistic? 😉 My answer. ❤ & Grace. 😉❤️ I remember that it’s not personal, it’s just work. I can’t choose how people react when they’re having a bad day or in a bad mood. But I can choose how I react. And I choose love and grace and help them find a solution. That’s how I do it. 😊 Same applies to my family members, we all have bad days. As Christians, we’re called to be the light of the world. And that’s not just a Sunday thing. It’s an every day thing, when it’s not easy in our workplaces, families, friendships and our personal lives and that’s why we need Jesus as our Saviour to guide us to show love and grace to the difficult people around us. Choose love and grace. It always wins. 🙃😉❤️

So in awe to be part of @paulangone book launch team for his new epic upcoming book – 101 Questions you need to ask in your 20’s! So this is challenge #1 (the above) 😉 Having just got out of the woods (of my last life season – more on that in my Faith in the woods podcast!), God has shown me if I had thrown in the towel to resign in my crappy job, I would have missed the valuable opportunity to train, empower and inspire the new young 20something junior female recruits! I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be in the privileged position to share my knowledge and pass on the torch of what I know and become a team leader before I hit my mid 20’s! 😎 Same story for my @cityonahillmelb church Gospel Community/bible group- if I gave up rooting myself in a church, would have never ended up as a GC co-leader and be at a place surrounded by inspiring young women to empower and nurture them. There’s a reason after all why people say patience is a virtue! 🙃😉
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 =)
It’s been a quiet few months on Joy Journalist, so thought I’ll say hi!
In short 😉
There’s a reason for this season, even though it doesn’t make sense right now 😉 Continue reading
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.
