"As a 'journaler' and also as one who conducts spiritual renewal workshops on journaling, I find Budd's book to be an excellent road map for our Christian journey, guiding our jottings as we weave in and out of 'traffic'--most all of the stuff that makes up our daily life under God."
"Deep calls to deep! Journal Keeping helps bridge the disconnection between our outer life and our inner life through the practice of reflective writing. Budd's approach is winsome and disarmingly honest as she gently invites us to discover how God works with the 'real stuff of our life' through the adventure of journaling. Rather than rigid rules or strict guidelines, Budd's profound insights will persuade even the skeptics among us to pick up their pens!"
"Budd has captured the magic and mystery of writing. Her book makes me want to stop reading--and write!"
"Budd helps us all think outside the box, and form new, fresh and innovative journaling habits that will help bring clarity to life and intimacy with God. We highly recommend this book, because it will help renew your hope each day, even long after you are finished reading its pages."
Chris HildebrandtMorton Grove, ILAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5November 10, 2009Chris HildebrandtMorton Grove, ILAge: 55-65Gender: femaleThis is one of the most helpful book I've found for journaling. The author gives great examples and suggestions concerning how to get started, what kind of journal or paper to use, using more than one journal or combining several journals into one notebook. It was just what I needed to get me started at journaling.
Nan E5 Stars Out Of 5May 12, 2008Nan EI bought this book to help my journaling practices, but came away with so much more! When I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. There is so much more to this book than journaling; the author's strong faith is evident, she provides scripture and glimpses of herself that show her compassion for God and others. Get this book...you won't regret it!!!
David R. Bess5 Stars Out Of 5July 26, 2002David R. BessIf you are looking for a book to provide guidelines for Christian journaling, your search will end with reading this work by Luann Budd. This devout Christian and minister's wife shares valuable insights gleaned from years of journaling. Her book is an easy, enjoyable read.Budd begins by making a case for effective journaling. She covers organization, direction, and preparation. After having made her case for the necessity of journaling, she moves to the bulk of her work, the process of journaling itself. She elaborates on various methods, one of which will surely appeal to every reader. She closes with some practical tips on putting all the knowledge presented into practice. She also adds three helpful appendices: fifty journaling possibilities, a brief list of Bible studies, and a substantial bibliography of books on journaling and other closely related issues.I recommend this book enthusiastically to anyone wanting a practical guide for Christian journaling. My sole complaint is that the volume is not available in a hardback edition. Before you start your journaling, read this book and benefit from a wealth of training!

Tell us a little about yourself. I am married, mother of 5 children. My husband and I have been in ministry since 1983. I work at the University Library at San Jose State. I'm the executive vice president of the Network of Evangelical Women in Ministry. I have a Masters degree in English from Long Beach State.
What was your motivation behind this project? I was asked to teach a workshop about what I do with my journal. People found the idea helpful and asked for copies of my handouts. Every time I taught the workshop I added to the handouts. Someone suggested I pursue publication so that people looking for a resource on how to keep a journal for spiritual purposes would have one.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A deeper love for Jesus.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I have greatly benefitted from the ministry of so many faculty and spouses at Dallas Theological Seminary. I've had several people who have mentored me. I have greatly benefited from the writings of John Stott, Henri Nouwen, the Ragamuffin Band, Jill Briscoe, and Cynthia Heald.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Writing is not hard. It's not expensive. It's been proven valuable in the lives of hundreds of people over that last 4,000 years. Give it a try!
