I know from reading behavior studies that journaling is a powerful tool. It causes us to stop and reflect and it also provides memories we can come back to later.
Having read The Power of Thank You by Joyce Meyer, I was glad to see that she has also created a journal to help us in our commitment to be thankful every day. She encourages us to start by writing down just one thing each day for which we are thankful. In a month we'll have thirty things for which we are grateful. On a discouraging day we can go back and read our record of God's blessings. Meyer suggests we can also record prayer requests in this journal, then note when God answers. Soon we'll have a record of answered prayers to encourage our faith on down days.
The layout of the journal is simple with just a quote by Meyer or a Bible verse on each page. There is plenty of space to write our thoughts. It's a great companion to use with Meyer's book on being thankful or to use all by itself.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
