Discover your journal’s potential to be a tool for spiritual growth

Kirsten Birkett encourages us to pick up our notebooks and pens and use journaling as a tool to grow in godliness. Writing is a powerful act. It takes time and allows us the space to turn emotions like sadness or anger into joy.

The Puritans used diaries as a way to give themselves spiritual counsel. It helped them to remember God’s mercies, to reflect on how He has been at work, and to be thankful.

This book is a helpful guide for those who want to start the practice of journaling, or who want to direct their journaling in a more intentional way. Put pen to paper and create a record of your spiritual life.

Birkett not only details why Christians should journal, but peppers her book with illustrations of the craft, helping the novice, as it were, to overcome any hesitations to put pen to paper. The book is ideal also for courses that deal with journaling as a spiritual discipline. I highly recommend it!

In this short, accessible book, Kirsten Birkett introduces us to the reflections of the Puritans and her own moving story, and in so doing helps us both taste the beauty of and engage in the practicalities of writing out words that are real, rich and re–orientating towards God.
