Discover a practical, weekly journal that will help you develop an attitude of gratitude, intentionally live each day and create a habit of delving into scripture.
The art of journaling is fast becoming a lost art.
Keeping a journal helps us to understand our past, dream about our future and make sense of today. You may not understand what is happening while standing in the middle, but by recording your journey you can start to see the journey unfold. Our life is so much bigger than our current moment in time.
"Scientific evidence supports that journaling provides unexpected benefits. The act of writing accesses your left brain, which is analytical and rational. While your left brain is occupied, your right brain is free to create, intuit and feel. In sum, writing removes mental blocks and allows you to use all of your brainpower to better understand yourself, others and the world around you. "
I have been trying to develop a practical way to journal. I think I have been able to create just that with this Legacy Journal!
We live in a busy world and many of us will admit that we are too busy, stretched too thin and that journaling would never fit into our lifestyle.
In September of 2015 I was hit by a drunk driver while stopped at a red light. It generally takes a traumatic event to provide us with a wake up call and this was my wake up call. I was hit with such force that my vehicle was totalled and I suffered a concussion and severe whiplash. I did not understand the symptoms of a concussion and what my new reality would look like. For months I couldn't finish a sentence, pull my thoughts together or recall certain memories.
This terrified me and kept me awake at night with worry. There were so many things I wanted to share with our daughters, so many thoughts and ideas I wished that I had written down. I had good intentions of writing them down, and now they were just out of reach of my memory and I worried if I would ever get them back.
I promised myself that if I got my memory back I would start writing everything down. I would share more with our daughters and I would find a solution to help others keep track of their thoughts, memories and spiritual walk.
I looked all over for a journal that would work for the idea that was in my mind but I couldn't find it. Everything was based on day planners and that isn't what I was looking for. I wanted something that:
» I could use as a year long project
» could be enjoyed as keepsake for our daughters
» that would challenge me
» that would record my personal and spiritual journey
» that would help me develop an attitude of gratefulness
» that opening my Bible and delving into it's pages would become a habit
Since I couldn't find it, I created it with the Legacy Journal. It is a practical, weekly opportunity for you to sit for a moment and write your thoughts. I have been using it and this format is great to accomplish what I was looking for, I have a few friends that are enjoying it as well. I hope that it is something that you find easy and beneficial to use as well.
