Asking Questions


Yay! Looking forward to connecting with you!

Are you new here? I’m so thrilled you stopped by! I’m Valerie Woerner, owner of Val Marie Paper. My hope is to inspire PEACE & JOY through our products, books, blog posts and pep talks on Instagram. I strongly believe God calls us all to different areas of influence and this little space on the world wide web is mine. 


You will find journals to liven up a limp prayer life (or spruce up your war room! :). I’ll be the first to say, I have to fight hard against worry and it was my own desire to pray more without all the distractions that prompted me to design our original prompted prayer journal.

I’ve written a few! The Finishing School is filled with short chapters on different areas we all want to grow in and are probably tired of staying the same. I’ll share Biblical wisdom to change our hearts and practical tips to change our actions. In Grumpy Mom Takes a Holiday, I dive into 20 common stereotypes about motherhood and uncover God’s counter-culture definition so that you can start living out a more invigorating motherhood as if you just walked off a beach when really, you may have just unbarricaded yourself from the bathroom. 😉 Pray Confidently and Consistently is for you if you’re feeling weighed down by expectations in your prayer life. I’ll walk you through the barriers that might be holding you back from your most important conversation.

Each week, I share about what I’m learning or answer questions that I get asked often. (Feel free to email me if you have a post or question you’ve love for me to feature). Other posts are inspired by the Bible or books I’m reading and ideas that I want to take deeper.

See my latest blog post here.  


I don’t use a personal account, but on Val Marie Paper’s account, you’ll find prayer motivation and practical tips for using your journal.

Each week, I’ll pop into your inbox to share encouragement, a short prayer, and a few links that you may have missed.

Every month, I’ll also round-up a few of my favorite finds and share the latest shop news!

I’m ALL for simplification. Don’t feel like you need to connect in every way! Pick one or two avenues that work best for you where you’ll be inspired most. And email me at if you need anything at all!
