Title: My Thank You Journal
Author: Joyce Meyer
Publisher: Ellie Claire Gifts
“Each day, write something for which you are thankful. When God blesses you in special ways, write them down so you do not forget them,” Joyce Meyer pens in the introduction of her diary book, My Thank You Journal.
~ What ~
This one-hundred-and-sixty-page hardbound targets those who like to write in journals. After an ownership page, the book contains blank lined pages with short sayings placed randomly at the top and bottom of the majority of the pages. Referencing mainly the New International Version of the Holy Bible, it includes a few written out Bible verses.
The idea of this journal is to write down and keep track of being thankful and blessed. The inserts promote concentrating on what the Lord has done for us and how to be thankful for His love, care, and joy. Some of the Bible verses are from Exodus, I Chronicles, Psalms, I and II Corinthians, Colossians, Ephesians, Philippians, and James to name a few.
~ Why ~
Those who like writing in a journal will appreciate this one dedicated to thankfulness. I like that that there are plenty of lines nicely spaced on each page, allowing ample areas to write. The book’s design has calendulas and baby’s breath against a mint background that is soothing and calm. It is compact so can be carried in a large purse or backpack.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ may not be interested in a book promoting writing down thanks to Him, but the book could be used as a simple journal for note-taking. Others who write in a large font may wish the spaces were further apart, but they are decently laid out.
~ Wish ~
It would be helpful if the book included an attached marker ribbon.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for a lovely journal to help you become more thankful and grateful, this would be an asset throughout the years.
* UPDATE: After speaking with friends and doing a little online research, my opinions of Joyce Meyer and her ministry have changed so cannot recommend this book: https://the-end-time.org/2021/02/09/bullet-points-on-why-joyce-meyer-is-a-false-teacher/
