Big ideas but little time? This is the journal for you.

The Move Forward Line-A-Day Journal

The idea of journaling is appealing. Processing our thoughts, recording the important events of our lives, looking back to see our journey of growth.

If you've ever said

I don't have time to sit down and journal every day


I don’t have enough words to fill those big blank pages, 

but you want the benefits of journaling, I've got you covered.

Fast, powerful life-change made easy


Big blank pages can be more intimidating than inviting. So the Move Forward Journal has small spaces to write just a sentence or two each day.

You'll cycle through the days each month and start seeing God's faithfulness and your progress unfold on the pages in just a few weeks.

And while you are focused on a single day most of the time, three Checkpoint pages scattered through the journal encourage you to look in, up and out at the bigger picture.


Other Journal Features

  • List of prompts for days you may get stuck, or you can assign some of the prompts to specific days and write about them every month.
  • Slim booklet style that is tuckable in your planner or Bible
  • Quotes from my favorite authors and Bible verses to keep you inspired and motivated
  • Also available as a plain or fillable PDF, perfect for your iPad or tablet.

I knew establishing the daily discipline of capturing my thoughts would create a new level of focus, clarity and peace.

What I didn't expect was to start sleeping better! Each night just before I put my head on my pillow, I grab my Move Forward Journal and jot down the thought at the top of my mind. Three minutes max.

Then I close the book, giving that thought to God, and putting it away in the nightstand. Intentionally closing out the day settles my swirling thoughts and leads to a peaceful, restful sleep.


Love keeping the journal every day!!! I like the smaller space - doesn’t seem like as big a chore.

I loved it so much more than I thought I would. And caught the vision for what it will be to see my notes over the course of months.
