Growing up, my best friend’s little sister struggled immensely with interpersonal skills and behavior issues.  To help her mom out their psychologist recommended starting a journal to promote better and more meaningful communication between them.  It was a great way for each of them to share their feelings (and frustrations) openly and honestly without getting tripped up on words or risking interruption.

If you are interested in reading more about this method check out the following articles:

If a shared journal can help you communicate with a willful and often naïve teen, imagine what it could do for your marriage!  Unfortunately, if you search for a guided marriage journal you don’t find options that truly build your marriage.  Instead, they are about documenting the events that have already happened (or listing A-Z reasons you love your spouse).  Communication is key in any relationship and it broke my heart that something like Build Your Marriage didn’t already exist. 

It is so easy with the demands on your time to put building your marriage on the back burner.  That is exactly where this journal can help.  It has weekly journal prompts for husbands and wives to answer.  The prompts are then followed up with a weekly action.  Not only is it not all-consuming of your time, it is guided which takes the onus off of you and your spouse to come up with ideas.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.

    Oh what a great idea for communicating! I like the teen idea too. Shared on Twitter! Have a great weekend!


  • The cover looks great! I love the colors because they are calming and neutral. This is going to be a great resource for many.

    That is so cool! I’m still nowhere near getting married, but I think it’s an amazing idea for those who will! Great blog gorgeous!, xx

    Love it. I give something similar to this to couples at their wedding. (more like a plan journal with some written instructions inside for them both to write in it.) I am so pleased you have developed the idea into something so beautiful. The look is gorgeous! I am so excited to see where this goes for you.

    • Thank you, Cristin!

    This idea of a shared journal for communication is so great. When I was still in the earlier stages of my relaitonship with my now husband, I used to write about my experiences on my blog hoping he’d read. He often did. Now he doesn’t rea dmy blog as often anymore and I make sure not to share things that are too personal regarding our marriage (after all, it’s the Internet). I can’t use paper journals because of my disabilitiesunfortunately, but I’m thinking using a shared journal is great.

    • Thank you! You could totally try this out digitally or use it has a jumping point for conversation 🙂
