About 30 Days to Joy: A One-Month Creative Journal
Joy is more than happiness. It is something you feel deep in your soul that stays with you even when circumstances get tough. With quotes and artistic prompts, this daily creative journal offers the deep, life-giving drink of joy that you need. Whether you are sketching a picture of a favorite activity, jotting down words that make you laugh, or spending time meditating on a Bible verse, you will find renewed joy in these fun and thought-provoking pages.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
What We Thought
Journaling has really become a thing more for adults than little girls these days. I find myself jotting down thoughts, Scripture or a recipe. I love using fun ink pens, colorful gel pens and even markers. This book is so much more than a journal though.
Each day you will be given a prompt and you can write down stuff, draw pictures and even as I mentioned earlier use Scripture in your own “journey to joy”. I will be starting this on November 1st which will already be a unique day in our home because I will be having surgery that morning and HOPE to come home and start this journal that afternoon.
Day 1- How is joy different from happiness? This seems like a great place to start and a great month to start when most people are already more focused on what they are thankful for, but do we really put focus on where our own joy comes from? We can easily say being a parent, spouse, even being someone’s child but lets dig deeper. True joy comes from so many places and with this book we can dive deeper into that.
At the end you get this:
You’ll notice two pages at the end of this journal to write down songs that speak to you every day during your journey. Once you’ve written out your full playlist, please share it. Create it on Spotify and tweet it to @WaterBrookPress using #JoyfulPlaylist.
I have already started to think of this journey and hope that some readers will join me. We have had a year of loss in our family but also a year of gaining a beautiful baby. It is time to focus on joy
For his anger is but for a moment; His favor is for a life-time: Weeping may tarry for the night, But joy cometh in the morning. — Psalm 30:5
