“Kids have a lot of big emotions and sometimes struggle with how to express them. Of course, as parents it’s our job to listen and be supportive, but sometimes kids need another way to blow off that emotional steam ”Parenting Magazine

I found some amazing products @ ErinCondren website, so many cool products to encourage our kids and ourselves to journal more! They have fun pens, markers, post-it notes, stickers, book marks, etc. You have to check it out, they have something for everyone!
I also love the Christian Planner team – check out what they have and how they started, their story is pretty cool:
The Christian Planner: HOW WE STARTED
Victor Delacruz is the creator of The Christian Planner. After 4 years of military service, Victor moved to Manhattan to attend graduate school at NYU, and also, to chase his dreams as a jazz musician. The pressures of the Big Apple quickly got to him and depression soon followed. The anxiety caused by the pressure to be successful was suffocating. He was lost. Victor created the Christian Planner as a way to schedule time with God in his own routine. He quickly realized that including Christ in his daily goal-setting, planning and journaling routine made him more productive, more focused and less prone to stress and anxiety. He decided to start Christian Planner to help other Christians put Christ at the center of their daily routines and experience the same benefits he did.
Try and set some time aside to journal for a few minutes and share the experience with those around you! Blessings, Christy Jo
