Perhaps you have considered journaling but are uncertain about what to do? There is no wrong way to go about it. If you aren’t a writer, use your journal to draw images that come to you. Make lists of things you’d like to do in the next month or year, or places you’d like to go or books you’d like to read. Try your hand at poetry.
Pick a favorite Bible passage and write about what it means to you.
Journaling is a personal exercise. You could, however, enlist a small group of like-minded individuals to support each other, meeting periodically—not to discuss what you are journaling, but to share inspiration and encouragement.
