Great customer service

I really look forward to using this journal with my daughter to increase her self-confidence and growth mindset. When she opened it for Christmas, there were brown marks all over the covers and on the page edges. I emailed a picture and I received a response right away. A new journal was shipped to us the same week. Thanks for the great customer service! And for a great product!

My 5 yr old enjoys this with the podcast

We have been listening to the podcast episodes on repeat since they first started. A few months after listening we bought the journal. It's awesome to watch my son listen to the podcast and then go looking in the journal for the associated chapter.

Cultivating a Growth Mindset

The Big Life Journal has been great for my 9 year old, who can struggle with a fixed mindset. It's also been wonderful for me as her journal buddy. I've learned a lot about her and also about myself!

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.    


How is the Big Life Journal - 2nd Edition different from the 1st edition?

Do you need to go through the 1st edition first?  

No, your child can start with the 2nd Edition right away. 

What ages is this journal good for?  

We recommend ages 7-10.
