Journaling Workshop

  • The Oaks UMC 2911 Inspiration Drive Hudson Oaks, TX, 76087 United States (map)

Ready to start using that new journal you received on Saturday? Let’s learn how to make the most of it, together! P.S. We bought a few extra journals, so even if you weren’t able to make it to Gathering Hope, don’t let that stop you from joining us for this workshop. Light refreshments will be provided and at 7pm we’ll participate in the International Wave of Light by lighting candles for our babies.

Author and blogger, Katie Proctor will be guiding us through a workshop she’s created just for Gathering Hope!

From Katie: “At Gathering Hope this weekend, you all received a beautiful journal. But I know sometimes that blank page can be intimidating, especially if you’re not sure where to start. I also know it can be scary to write things down, to see your thoughts and feelings bleed onto a page that others might see. But journaling can be so helpful in your healing process. Join me for the night to learn about the science behind writing and healing, tips and tricks to get you started, and time to reflect about your Gathering Hope experience and your grief journey with other moms who know what it’s like.

I am currently a stay-at-home mom to my two kiddos, 6 and 2, and am in the process of getting my first two novels published. Before I decided to stay home, I taught fourth grade and did a lot of extensive writing training to not only teach my students how to write, but to teach teachers how to write and how to extend their learning to their own students. Teaching is my love language, and I feel so blessed to be able to share what I know with you.”

**There is no cost to attend, but registration is preferred so that we can make this a wonderful evening for you. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us adequately plan for each guest!**
