Five-Year Journal: The Gift that Keeps Giving

Mother’s Day is coming up, and I have the perfect gift idea for you. I bet you can guess what I’m going to suggest…

You’re right–a Five-Year Journal!

I have been talking about my Five-Year Journals for so long now that I forget many of you may not know the story of how I came to create my own version.

I went into my News archives to find an article I wrote back in 2012, and I thought I’d share it with you today. In it, I talk about how I designed and then filled my very own Five-Year Journals. Click here to read it.

Once you have used your own Five-Year Journal for a while, you’ll be surprised how helpful it can be to mine your own life for details, descriptions, and story elements to use in your stories.

If you haven’t already watched the three recently-created videos I’ve shared over the past three newsletters, you can watch them at your leisure:

Many Uses for a Five-Year Journal

Just think–when you give your mother a Five-Year Journal, you are also giving yourself the gift of her written daily remembrances and wisdom, ready to pass down, cherish, and share with your own children and grandchildren someday.

Remember, you only have a few more days to get $5 off the total price of a Five-Year Journal.  If you purchase a journal before the end of April, you can use coupon code fiveoff to get $5 off the total price at checkout.
