Best think ever. A must have for every child.

This is the 2nd year my son has received his Big Life Journal. I got him his first one for his 7th birthday. This has now become an annual tradition and one which I will keep always. I wish I had a journal like this growing. The game-changer for us has been the new journal buddy series that now goes along with the stories and chapters. My son loves doing the journal and videos together. Last year it was a challenge to get him to complete his first journal. This year, he has done it in 5 months! I love to reflect on last year's journal and what he has completed this year and see the changes he has made with descriptions, examples, writing etc and how far he has come along. It truly is one of the best gifts ever to have for life. WE LOVE BIG LIFE JOURNAL. Keep up the great work.

Great Book

My 10 yr old son was really down on himself. Dyslexia, Remote Learning, Vision Therapy and Sensory Processing to the max, head to toe. I was at the beginning stages of researching a behavior therapist or coach. We already have a Dys. Tutor and an Occupational Therapist, what's one more to the team. He had already gone through a full neuro evaluation. The things my son was saying was out of my league and I wanted to get it right when I was coaching him. I just did not feel like I was getting through to him. So I purchased the Big Life Journal. We work through a chapter per day during homeschool this year. Only about half way through the book and I've noticed much less negative commenting about himself. It's nearly nonexistent. As if it's pointing him in a bit of a direction that is more positive. It's so subtle but so straight forward. It seems to be written in just a way that he comprehends at his age. Without too much, or too little. At first, I thought he would reject it. He is very black/white and often talks about brainwashing. I was sure he wouldn't accept this Journal, but he did!!!! So... Thank You SOOOOO MUCH for the guidance in the right direction in a world of misguidance. I need all the help I can get. All the Free Resources are great too!

AMAZING resource!

These journals are amazing! I work at an elementary school and this is a perfect resource for kids to think about and journal their feelings, and work through their emotions.

The journal covers 10 important topics

Believe in Yourself

Mistakes Help You Grow

Be Persistent

Be Grateful

Be Unique, Be You

Challenges Make You Stronger

Effort is Key

Love Learning 

Be Kind 

Make a Difference in the World

A powerful connection tool

Big Life Journal is completed with a Journal Buddy — a parent, grandparent, teacher, older sibling, a relative or friend who lives far, etc.

Journal Buddies will love their special time connecting, listening to kids’ ideas, sharing their own stories, and enjoying great conversations about life. Children and grown-ups alike will look forward to this time together! 

The Big Life Kids Podcast accompanies the journal

Your child will be able to listen to the complementary episodes of the podcast as they are going through their Big Life Journal. This creates a powerful multi-sensory experience which allows them to absorb information faster and more effectively.

Only the highest quality materials

With plenty of room to draw and write on each page, the Big Life Journal lets children work at their own pace as they reflect, learn and grow.

This beautiful guided journal is made for little hands to use and durable enough to last as a keepsake for children as they grow older.

- Bright, sturdy hardcover
- 176 pages of high-quality paper 
- Lays flat when opened for easy drawing and writing
- Sewn-in satin ribbon bookmark 

...and it lays flat! 

Our well-constructed journals need to be “worked open” to take advantage of the lay-flat feature. Do this to make sure your journal lays nicely flat.
