10 Summertime Journal Prompts


Keeping a journal or a diary has shown to have many great benefits. It can help us clarify and understand our thoughts, express our deepest desires, and inspire our creativity. It is also a great tool in relieving everyday stress, and as Christians, journaling can bring us closer to God.

It can sometimes be hard to know what exactly to write about, so I've put together a list of prompts for you to write on this summer. I encourage you to carve out some time to journal over these next couple of months. Who knows, it may just lead to the breakthrough you've been looking for!
