“The Quote Keeper” is a journal featuring 55 beautiful illustrations ready for you to pair with your favorite quotes as prompts to inspire meaningful reflections.
On the Sunday following my Dad’s funeral in June 2016, I was reading my favorite newsletter and a quote leapt out at me that I had to add to the blank notebook I was keeping my favorite quotes in.
It dawned on me that there had to be a journal I could buy that would allow me not only to collect quotes but prompt me to include attribution, where I found it, and why it speaks to me. But one hour of futile Google searches later, I just couldn’t find the right journal.
So, I created it.
You know that regular journaling can help you release stress, identify with your inner-self, and motivate you to act. That’s why you take time to journal, because you know that self-care can have a positive impact on your life.
But sometimes finding the motivation to journal can be a challenge. Especially when you have so many other things on your to-do list. Making journaling fun, as well as insightful, can give you the kick you need to keep writing.
And that’s where “The Quote Keeper” comes in.
The 7.5 x 9.25 size allows for plenty of space for you to:
—> Track where you heard or read each quote and who said it.
—> Discover how to use quotes as prompts to guide your journaling.
—> Ignite your passion and find purpose through meaningful reflections.
This updated 2nd edition includes many new, original black & white posters that I designed like the ones you share with family, friends, and followers on social media.
Let this journal be your companion as you unlock the power of quotes to inspire you and spark your creativity.
—> Keep the book in your bag for those times when you’re out and about or you want to pass the time on your next trip.
—> Fill it with quotes from your in-person or online book club readings.
—> Take it to your next gathering with family or friends. Ask everyone to fill out a quote poster and prompts. It’ll make for a one-of-a-kind keepsake.
—> Gift it to recent graduates, newlyweds, first-time parents, or new retirees. Fill out a few quote posters along with the first prompt to get them started.
—> Give it to clients or members in a 1-on-1 or group coaching program. Help others gain clarity by reflecting on your words of wisdom shared during sessions.
I’ve been known to spend hours playing with nouns and verbs and adjectives, puzzling out the perfect combination to reveal my thoughts or ideas or moods.
Whether writing or speaking, I respect the power, the magic, of a well-placed word. A sentiment that, as an award-winning assistant professor of instruction, I pass along to my Communication students at The University of Texas at Austin.
I hope this journal becomes not only your space for collecting your favorite quotes, but also a place for you to reflect on those magical words to move you closer to living the life you’re meant to live while being the person you’re meant to be.
