    What a wonderful idea, Holly! I love that you are passing on a legacy to your family through your journals. And adding photos will make them true keepsakes. What a treasure for generations to come!

    I’ve kept a journal since my first grade teacher encouraged it 35 years ago…in junior high I began dating the beginning/end of each journal…now I use them to create photo albums…they are an amazing way to pass a legacy of faith, trials, hardship, years of actively waiting on the Lord, and how HE has carried us and been faithful. Thank you for reminding me WHY I do this and to keep it up.

    Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you found this inspiring and confirming. I love having a nice journal as well. It’s a great gift idea, too!

    YES! This is so important! It helps me to go back and make sense of things He’s told me or put together a timeline of His answers to my prayers. I like to buy nice journals from places that sell them cheaper, like T. J. Maxx or Marshall’s. This helps me to treasure them more than if I just use a spiral notebook like we use with schoolwork. These will also be treasured by those you love who you leave behind when your journey here is over. My beloved aunt passed away in 2013 and it was amazingly comforting to read the words she wrote to the Lord in her journal. Thanks for this article, Jeannie! Beautiful!

    Thank you Jeannie! I am going to get started and not wait until I find the "Perfect Journal" which I often think to myself. Thank you for taking the time to write this post. You encourage me greatly! Was sad you were not in Baltimore this year, but I know you are busy. Maybe next year 🙂

    I've kept a prayer journal off and on, but never consistently. I really think it is a discipline I'm being called to take on. Thanks for the wonderful description and the gentle kick in the pants. 🙂 I'll try to scare up a notebook today.
