Our Greatest Fears

I had the opportunity to film a "Stories to Tell" segment for Northridge Publishing for our October issue which you can see below.



October's theme was "fears" and covered a variety of themes within that idea. The submissions for this article ranged from the hilarious to the serious. And the one layout that I shared in this video is the one that was hardest for me to create. It focuses on every parent's worst fear: losing a child. This layout was a hard one to journal through. I shed many tears, but I needed to let out what I was feeling. I think it will be a powerful memory for my children and their children to read someday.



For additional ideas on how to journal through your fears, check out the October Scrapbook Trends issue here!

I think that's reall important for people to hear. You are a wonderful artist and inspiring woman. I'm sure you have your rough days, but your faith pulls you through!! Thanks for the inspiration!!
