This "journal" is not actually a journal, and I was very disappointed in that. I expected it to be a journal with simply blank pages (with some verses or quotes, as the description says) so that I could give it to a newly engaged friend who loves to write. However, this journal is actually a devotional, with pages after each devotional to journal in response to what was written in the day's devotional. I was not looking for a devo or anything like that, so I am not too happy with that, however if you are looking for a cute little devotional for a newly engaged friend or family member, this is certainly a good choice. It is priced well, the devos are short and easy to read, and there is room to journal, which I love in a devotional.
