Build faithful discipline
As Christians, we know how important the principle of discipline is. Believers since the beginning of time have had to work on being disciplined in their walk with God—spending time with Him and making Him a priority above everything else. We all get into “dry seasons” where our passion for reading the Bible and praying daily seems to fade or be absent altogether. Journaling can help you stay focused and disciplined in your walk with God, motherhood and mental/physical health, even in those seasons of drought.
As a mom, I know what it’s like to feel like you’re drowning—trying to be the perfect mom, wife, friend, daughter, Christian…the list goes on. As we attempt to grasp and hold onto each moment through the chaos, life just seems to pass us by. Our journals can help you SLOW DOWN. I know that seems impossible sometimes, but through journaling, we really can cultivate a habit of intentionality. We never know what tomorrow will bring and how much time we have with the ones we love, so let’s make every moment last!
Heal mental wounds
Many studies have linked improved mental health to the practice of journaling, due to the nature of getting to ease your burdens, identify and process emotions as well as make sense of your internal and external experiences. Journaling, however, is only a tool. We know that journaling in and of itself is not what heals, but that God can use the practice of journaling to bring healing if He desires.
Connect with the ones you love
I think there is something to be said about the fact that God connects and communicates with us through written word. Since the beginning of time, whether on stone tablets or animal skin, people have been writing down their accounts and experiences in order to share them with generations to come. Our journals will give you the ability to connect with others in such a profound and unique way that will last for a lifetime, even after you are gone. Your journals will be able to tell your story or share heartfelt messages with the ones who mean most to you—a message they will be able to read over and over again.
