Journal Ideas

Are you a "journal-er"?


One of the quaintest self-identifiers I hear from people is if they call themselves a "Journal-er" or "definitely not a journal-er." The identity runs deep, and always presents itself when challenged.

But what if there was a third category:


"I'm in a journaling-season-of-life right now."

Some seasons just require more reflection that others.

If you're in a journaling-season-of-life (or you aspire to be), take a look at my new hardcover journals and get inspired by things you can put inside them.
