An Inspired Young Woman's Daybook

Well, I've seen alot of young woman's or teen girl's daybooks floating around the "blogosphere", and I thought they'd be cool to do. But none of them quite had the questions I'd like. So to remedy that, I thought I'd start my own! This is the inspired young woman's daybook, specifically for those young women who love the Lord and enjoy doing creative things.

If you'd like to participate in this (and I'd really love it if you would!), pick a day that you can write on your blog consistently (I'll probably be doing Saturday... we'll see), and then just post on your blog, filling out the following prompts. This is a sample form (please make sure to copy and use my picture and the link):

So here's my first entry.

Today I was antisocial - I was in my room on my computer practically the whole day (bad, I know)
I'm feeling tired, but still happy.
My outfit is my favorite comfy jeans, and a sweatshirt. (pretty much my favorite attire, unless I'm going out :P)
Outside my window... Unfortunately I can't see outside because it's nightime and dark, but I did notice a gorgeous sunset earlier!
A song that's stuck in my head "Viva la Vida meets Love Story" by Jon Schmidt (it's in my music player on the sidebar)
Something (a book, song, movie, person...) that's inspired me recently is my parents. They encouraged me when I was feeling overwhelmed about my audition at Cedarville, and inspired me with their love and sacrifices they've made for me.
A prayer of my heart this week is that I would have God in the forefront of my thoughts, not myself or my desires.
I am reading too many books at once... "Emma" by Jane Austen, "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens, and "The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
I am creating a novel (or working on it) called "Alphyri". Currently I'm still figuring out details, but it's set in a Medieval-type landscape, about a peasant who doesn't know she's the rightful princess, and a prince who just wants to be a peasant. And they fall in love :D
I am thinking about my book I ought to be writing. :P
A scripture verse or passage that's stuck out to me this week is John 15:4 "Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me." A spiritual lesson I'm learning is to seek God first above all else.
An attribute of God I've seen this week is His peace. He granted me an abundant measure of it for my audition, and I'm so thankful!
A picture I’d like to share from a recent trip to our grandparent's. It's an old abandoned schoolhouse.
A creative goal for next week is to write, oh, let's say 4,000 words in my novel (nothing like word count goals to motivate one's writing!)
Did I complete my goal from last week... n/a

I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me. Please feel free to participate in this on your blog as well!

WOW...this is soooo cool! I think I'm going to try! I've always wanted to do a regular one, but I didn't know how to start. I think this one is cooler, though. And your book plot sounds awesome. I love books like that! =D (I'll probably start next saturday)

Hi Melody!

Congrats on your audition! Praise the Lord that He gave you His peace!

I love the Inspired Young Woman's Daybook that you made! I like the questions. :) I think I'm going to try it, and I'll probably try to do it on Sundays, since it is the first day of the week, and I'll start the week inspired. :)

In God's Love,
Nicole

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I have changed the links, so it should work now. I have no idea why it was doing that! It was happening to me too..... Weird....

Anyway, thank you!
