Dwell Journal

Introducing the Printable Dwell Journal™

Hello Friends! Today, I'm excited to share a new collection (and a little freebie) that I quietly launched a couple of weeks ago: The Dwell Journal™ Printable Collection.

From the beginning, I had a long list of ideas for features I wanted to include in the Dwell Journal™, but putting every single one of those ideas into a printed format would result in a HUGE journal at an equally large price point.

But I didn't stop dreaming or designing. I kept working on pages for my own ideal journal—pages for sermon notes, scripture memory, and gratitude. I also needed a place to keep track of Bible reading and prayer requests, so I laid those pages out as well. And I knew I needed a place for general note-taking and written prayers, so I went ahead and developed those pages too.

The result? A printable Dwell Journal™ collection that you can build into your own perfect quiet time notebook. Each Dwell Journal™ printable will guide you through your time alone with the Lord. Whether you’re using the Dwell Daily pages for your Bible study, the Be Grateful pages to record blessings, or the Pray Often pages to note prayer requests, it’s my hope and prayer that the simple act of writing things down will help you remember the things that matter most. 

Since the printables are sold both separately and as a package, it's simple to put together a Bible study notebook that works for you. Each printable is available in both letter and half-letter formats, so you can easily print, punch holes, and place in a binder. You can print as many copies of the pages as you need as long as it's for personal use, and extended licensing is available upon request if you need to print copies for your entire Bible study group or Sunday school class.

Sound good? Visit the shop for a closer look at the individual pages. AND because I love you, and because you've made it this far, I think it's only fair to tell you that for a limited time, I'm offering the Take Note page (pictured below) as a free download.

The Printable Take Note worksheet for the Dwell Journal™ is a plain and simple lined page to use for note-taking. Sometimes you just need a place to write things down. The Take Note worksheet is perfect for everything from grocery lists to sermon notes. Download it today and get a feel for the printable Dwell Journal system.

I hope you love the printable collection as much as I do! What else would you like to see in a quiet time journal? Let me know in the comments, and I'll see if I can make it a reality.

Until next time, grace and peace.

How to Have a Quiet Time Using the Dwell Journal

How to Have a Quiet Time Using the Dwell Journal

Hey everyone! I hope you're having a great week! It's been a busy and exciting couple of days around these parts. Thank you so  much for making the LAJ shop launch a success! I was overwhelmed with gratitude as all your orders rolled in, and I can't thank you enough for your support. I hope that you love the collection as much as I do, and today I wanted to give you a closer look at one of the new products: the Dwell Journal.

I created the Dwell Journal to meet a need in my own life. I've been an avid journal-er for years, but last spring, I started looking for something a little more structured to accompany my Bible reading. I went to the Christian bookstore and found nothing like I wanted, so I decided to create my own. This was around the time that the Lord started moving me to close my custom stationery shop, and it became clear to me that this journal I was dreaming of would be the center of my new line.

So that's how the Dwell Journal was born. It's a guided 30-day journal to help you draw closer to the Lord and deeper into His word. Each daily entry is a two-page spread with different sections designed to help you focus on what Scripture is telling you about God and who you are in relation to Him. After using the journal in my own quiet times for the past month or so, I can tell you that it's a fantastic tool to use in your Bible study time, and I'm not just saying that because I created it. The Dwell Journal has helped me reflect on the character of God and meditate on what Scripture reveals to me about Him. Because I'm seeing Him more clearly, I can see myself more clearly, and God is using that to transform me from the inside out.

So, with all of that said, I made a little video to give you a little preview of the journals and show you how to use it in your quiet time. Take a peek to get an inside look at the Dwell Journal.

As I mentioned in the video, the journals are being printed as we speak. They're available for pre-order in the shop now, and they'll ship by December 1, so you'll have them in plenty of time for Christmas. If you have any questions, just drop a note in the comments, and I'll do my best to get it answered.

And finally, if you've made it this far, then I think you deserve a reward. Use the code DWELLPREVIEW to get 15 percent off all journals. Offer expires Friday, 11/20 at 11:59 p.m. CST. Happy shopping!

Until next time, grace and peace.
