Embracing Life's Journey: Reflections on Faith, Love, and Renewal




Hello Beautiful Souls~


I hope you're doing well~We are all busy doing our own life and sometimes it's wonderful to be still, quiet, reflect, and gain your ''superpower'' back especially during trials, am I right? I think so..


I wanted to share some thoughts and more so a journal for me to look back at later in life. It just so happens to be online and well in case there are a few of you that enjoy your reading of jackie just being herself lol, so be it :) We all need smiles and that's what I bring ...



As we journey through life, each of us faces our own set of trials and tribulations. These challenges, while daunting, offer us unique opportunities for growth, understanding, and deepening our connections with those we hold dear. Today, I find myself reflecting on this very journey, particularly in light of the upcoming Easter season—a time symbolizing renewal, hope, and the profound promise of resurrection.


In navigating my path, I've come to understand the invaluable role of therapy, self-care, and self-love. These are not merely practices reserved for moments when we find ourselves on a therapist's couch but are essential components of daily self-reflection. They are the quiet, persistent efforts we make to understand ourselves, to heal, and to grow. At 40, embracing these practices alongside my beloved husband, Tarl, has been a transformative experience. Together, we walk hand in hand, not just as life partners but eternal companions and more importantly as fellow sojourners in faith.


Our marriage, grounded in respect and love, mirrors our shared reverence for our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is through Him that we've learned the true essence of partnership—a union not just of two people, but of two souls, united in purpose and faith. This understanding has not come easily, nor has it been without its trials. Yet, it is through these very trials that I've come to a deeper appreciation of the Atonement and my relationship with Jesus Christ.


Seeing myself as a daughter of God, I recognize the trials and challenges I face are but a fraction of my journey. They have tested me, yes, but they have also provided me with a more profound understanding of life, faith, and the love of my Savior. As Easter draws near, it's a poignant reminder of the cycle of life, death, and rebirth—not just as a historical or biblical event, but as a deeply personal experience mirrored in our own lives.


The power of prayer, fasting, and faith, especially when shared with others, cannot be overstated. It speaks to the unity and strength we can find not only within ourselves but within our communities and relationships. This unity, this oneness, is reflective of the bond I share with Tarl, as well as my relationship with the Savior and all of creation.


There is beauty in everything and everyone, a reflection of Heavenly Mother's love and the divine nature of all creation.

In recognizing and cherishing the sacred gifts of life, even those we often overlook, we open ourselves to a deeper appreciation of the world around us. My journey, marked by both suffering and joy, has taught me to see the beauty in the every day, to acknowledge the strength in vulnerability, and to understand the transformative power of love and faith.


As we move forward, let us all take a moment to reflect on the blessings that surround us, the challenges that shape us, and the love that binds us. May we find strength, healing, and joy in our individual and collective journeys, and may our relationships—with our partners, our faith, and the world—continue to grow and flourish.


In closing, I am reminded of the enduring truth that through trials and tribulations, we are offered the chance to rise anew, stronger and more enlightened. Let this Easter season be a reminder of the promise of renewal and the everlasting love of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For in Him, we find the courage to face each day, the strength to overcome, and the assurance that indeed, He Lives.


Keep Shining ~Be Inspired~
