Trust issues? Secret resentments? Low self-esteem? Panic episodes? False guilt? Emotional neediness?

These and many other problems often result from emotional wounds we carry from the past. Can’t just shrug them off?

Millions joined the #metoo movement, and countless others have #trauma and #ptsd they’re seeking to resolve.

If you or someone you know is ready to heal from the inside out, this therapist-approved journal is perfect!

Created with respect to the unique individual’s process, this journal provides a lesson, reflection and goal-setting page for each week, as well as affirmations and prompts for 7+ journal pages per week. It is designed to help create a safer place inside oneself, and gradually facilitate deepening reflections, replacing:

  • anguish with comfort
  • false guilt or shame with love
  • unhelpful or painful beliefs about the self with helpful and positive beliefs about the self

Spend some time writing in this journal at least 5 of 7 days for the next 12 weeks. You’re bound for progress on your road to recovery!

This faith-based edition includes:

  • Beautifully designed cover with original art by GillianIvyArt @gillianivyart Instagram/Twitter/Etsy
  • Size: Easy-to-store 6 x 9 inches
  • 150 pages to document your recovery journey, then save or burn!
  • Prompted, affirming and judgment-free spaces to guide your healing process
  • Permission to copy My Daily Inventory and My Self-Care Planning worksheets for personal use
  • Perfect binding, quality white paper sheets, ample lined space to record your healing journey

Follow my website for updates as this book will be available on Amazon in March 2023. I’ll post again with a link as soon as it’s released.

Fresh off the press—proof copies!

This journal was lovingly created by yours truly, a fellow on the journey. I am a grateful recovering survivor of childhood wounds, then addictions minister/curriculum writer, then occupational therapist*, and now author. I hope to inspire others toward the deep inner journey of health that can transform both internal and external life with the Power of Love.

*Occupational therapists are trained health care professionals that use meaningful activities to bring “skills for the job of living.”
