What experience most shaped your faith this past year?

With questions about your view of yourself, your view of God, and your current circumstances, this journal is a simple but beautiful way to keep a collection of your hopes and thoughts throughout the years.

Quotes from C.S. Lewis, St. Francis of Assisi, Martin Luther and many others decorate the pages with encouragement and offer opportunities to ponder the lasting peace of God.“We hope that our new products can help people to spend time peacefully processing their lives and faith in creative and restorative ways,” says Susan Tjaden, WaterBrook and Multnomah editor and member of the development team. “The interactive products are intended to be both useful and beautiful, resulting in a keepsake they can come back to year after year.”
In some ways, I think the Daily Question journal is my favorite of the three. So often, we fail to take the time to really notice how the Lord is working in our lives, to journal what we are learning and when, and to commemorate all that the Lord is doing. This journal provides the perfect opportunity to do all of those things, but in a way that is not stressful and will not add just “one more thing” onto your to-do list. In a beautiful yet simple way, this journal provides you with journaling space to answer the same question on the same day for five years in a row to see how the Lord is working, changing, blessing, and teaching you. I love it!
