A better spiritual life, just a journal away

CLAREMORE, OKLAHOMA (ANS) -- How easily do you remember God’s blessings in your life?
In her new book “Journaling with Jesus: How to Draw Closer to God,” Ms. Round explains this technique as a way to enhance quiet time with God. The book is “designed to teach, encourage and inspire its readers to pursue a more intimate relationship with God through keeping a daily prayer journal.”
According to a news release, Ms. Round has seen God’s faithfulness firsthand. Even when she was facing five surgeries in seven years on top of the break-up of her 28-year marriage, the author has recognized the presence of God in her life. Her relationship with God and the strength of her prayer life have helped her survive and, in the process, be a blessing in the lives of many who read her weekly column and have heard her speak.
“My book… is filled with balanced scriptural support, practical guidance, shared stories, encouragement and inspiration for readers,” she says. “I hope that this leads to a lifetime spiritual habit of wanting to spend time with our Heavenly Father.”
For a limited time, until September 6, readers can access a free copy of the companion workbook, “The 40-Day Challenge,” at www.carolaround.com.
“In our fast-paced society, I think people, including Christians, need the encouragement and inspiration my book provides. …it gently provides the guidance needed to start those who are seeking more of God in their lives to a new level of intimacy with Him,” she says.
