8-year-old loves it!

My 8-year-old son LOVES his Big Life Journal. I was shocked at how into it he is. He will write in it for hours if I let him and he is so proud of it. He loves sharing with me what he wrote, which is awesome because he doesn't tend to share his inner thoughts too often.

I love the product!

Being quarantined has given us the opportunity to really dig into the big life journal. I love the product, the concept, and the feeling behind it. My son enjoys coloring and doing the different activities daily. My favorite part is the podcast. We would listen to them in the morning before school to get into s positive mindset for the day

I’ve been waiting to share my two cents on this, but we have gotten pretty far into the books now and the kids love them!! They ask to do it, it’s never a chore. I have three kids and got one for each. One daughter didn’t want to give it a chance because she likes journals she can write whatever she wants in. The superpowers page sparked her curiosity and got her to give it a try and now she is further in the book than her brother and sister. I absolutely love the inspiring stories. I wish these seeds were planted in my head as a kid!! :heart:

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
