Journal + Devotional = Awesome 365 Devotional Journals

I love journals and I love devotional books. 
I love writing down my thoughts and I love going back through old journals 
to see what I was thinking and praying about at different seasons of my life. 
It is often through journals that I am able to see God's plans 
and hand-prints on difficult times in my life. 
I think journals are little scrapbooks of our lives- that often live on beyond us. 

I have three or four devotional books and start every single day reading at least one. 
They help me to focus on what truly is important and to think about 
what God is calling me to do that day. 
So when you put together a devotional book that includes space for journaling? 
That is perfection! 

Below are three GORGEOUS 365 devotional journals perfect for 2019. 
I love all three of them and am having a hard time deciding on my favorite. 
(Not done shopping? They would make a fabulous Christmas or Happy New Year gift!)
All three have beautiful covers but the true beauty is on the words inside!
Each of the dated pages has a short devotional and then a lined space below
 to write your thoughts or prayers.
They are the perfect way to start a day focusing 
on what is truly important- Jesus!


Description: We pray for peace. We beg for it from others. We make speeches about it. But in the end, the only peace most of us can control is that little portion we display for the world to see. If we are at peace, the chaos around us seems to calm down. Our peace affects others. And the giver of peace awaits to give us the gift that can change our world. It begins with a prayer. It begins with me.

What I Love About It:
  • The blue and green cover with gold foil accent is so pretty, serene and calming! 
  • Each page has a devotional and Bible passage to read
  • There are lines after each devotion to write your thoughts or prayers (I love lines!)
  • It has a lay-flat binding so it's easy to write on either side of the journal
  • The devotions in this journal are focused on peace and finding peace in our lives and in our hearts. It's visually calming and not busy at all.
  • The journal has a ribbon to mark your spot
  • Each day ends with a prayer
  • It has a pretty green closure band so you can keep it in your purse or bag without worrying the pages will get wrinkled

Who Should You Buy This For?: This devotional journal would be perfect for anyone you know who needs a little more peace in their life.

Description: From the small whisper of a snowflake to the large circumference of a baobab tree, all of nature is the creative expression of God. When we embrace His creative nature by taking the time to stop, notice, and connect, our hearts are encouraged and souls refreshed. Respond to the devotions, add your own creative writing, or keep track of prayers on the journaling lines.
