Monday Inspiration and Encouragement (Volume Eight)

June 26, 2017

I shared a couple of months ago that for a while now I have had a dream of sharing some Monday inspiration and encouragement on the blog. Life is hard and I know full well that in the difficult times it can be hard to find inspiration, so a couple of months ago I shared my first post (which you can find HERE and all of the Monday inspiration posts HERE) and I plan to routinely share with y'all different things that I have found to be really inspiring and encouraging from all different genres and hope that it will encourage and inspire you for your week! 

To be honest I have come to look forward to these posts the so much throughout the week. I have realized that it makes me look and find more inspiration than could ever be shared in one post in all different areas! It is so much fun! I hope that these things continue to inspire you!
{first} It would be impossible to not share my gratitude again for the overwhelming support of the release of the 2nd edition of Praying through Lyme DiseaseAs I shared a couple of weeks ago, I am truly overwhelmed in the best possible way by your support of all of my writing, especially this book. Thank you so much!! Also... I know I said this a couple of weeks ago but If you are an aspiring author and have a dream for a niche specific book that you are having trouble getting signed to be published through traditional publishing... I can't encourage you enough to consider independent publishing. Run with your dreams and go after it. Your book and story is needed. You are the only one that can uniquely share it. 

This past week I mailed out books to countries I never have before and it is so humbling to see all of the places that this little book is going!

{second} I shared on Instagram that I was introduced to Hope Social Club last Thursday and their music has pretty much been on repeat since then. Absolutely love the sound and music. If y'all haven't heard of them check them out HERE. Go listen and let me know what your favorite song is! 

{third} So a couple of week ago I shared that I had been doing some research about an upcoming project and came across a listing of women who had saved people during World War II. Last week then I shared about a couple of different books and this past week I looked into this book, "The Zookeeper's Wife". Have y'all read this or heard the story? Have y'all seen the movie that was released this past March? I watched THIS interview about the movie (taken at the Holocaust Museum) and it was interesting to see a "behind the scenes" take on things. 

You can purchase the book on Amazon HERE and you can also watch the movie on Amazon HERE. I am excited to know y'alls thoughts! 

{fourth} Have Courage and Be Kind. This saying has been resonating with me this past week. I hope it inspires you as it has me. 
{fifth} Remembering the visit to Emigrant Gap last year reminded me of the courage that the pioneers had. It has really been incredibly inspiring. 

I hope that you are inspired and encouraged by these four things on this Monday! What about you? What is inspiring you recently? I am heading to California tomorrow for a couple of days and appreciate your love and prayers! Thank you friends!
