Journal Jar

President Spencer W. Kimball gave this counsel: “Every person should keep a journal and every person can keep a journal. It should be an enlightening one and should bring great blessings and happiness to the families. If there is anyone here who isn’t doing so, will you repent today and change-change your life?” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1979, p. 117; or Ensign, May 1979, p. 84).

Journal Jars are a fun way to get inspired when you have a hard time figuring out what to write about.

Decorate a jar or box, and place inside several ideas on topics for journal writing (called prompts).

YW leaders: remember to use the read and write Personal Progress activities as journal jar entries! YW can follow the prophet’s counsel to keep a journal and get credit for Personal Progress at the same time!
