Raising my children to have a personal relationship with their creator is my reason to live. So, I was thrilled to get a chance to review the Spiritual Circle Journal for Kids & Teens from Spiritual Circle Journal.

What is the Spiritual Circle Journal?

The creator of the journal is Liz Lassa, who is a life purpose coach. The journal starts with a 3-page introduction and explains that the idea behind the journal is to help establish quiet time with God and to keep it encouraging and fun. It is said to be used with kids and teens, but any age child can use it and can get as creative as they desire, using cut outs from magazine pictures, drawing their own, decorating the pages however they see fit, or simply writing words inside the graphics that serve as spiritual story prompts.

I received a spiral-bound-on-the-top journal that is much like a scrapbook and journal combined. It is designed by child book illustrator, Jack Foster, with large graphics for the student to write inside. Each graphic leads the user to think about specific topics:


  • Thought Bubble - Journal Entry (What are you thinking about today? Feelings.
  • Oval - Lyric/Verse (Line of a song or Bible verse that caught your attention)
  • Open Book - Message (Most important thing you learned from devotions today
  • Heart - Confession (What do you need to say sorry for?)
  • Car - God Moving (Have you noticed God doing something special in your life?)
  • Light Bulb - Lesson Learned Light-Bulb Moment (Enlightened moments)
  • Purse - Prayer (What Do You need to pray for today?)
  • Note - Thank You/Adoration (What do you want to give praise for?)
  • Shoe - Actions (What do you think God is calling you to do, to take action for others?)

The journal has a laminated transparent cover that protects the pages. The inside cover has a template explaining each icon. The next page has a spot for your name, From and Date Range, followed by a 3 pages of instruction for the parent and then a Personal Page About Me and Favorites as well as a spot for a Selfie.

A sample page of how to fill out each entry gets you started. There are 66 journal pages, The last several pages are filled with empty ovals for your child to fill in lessons learned, God stories, favorite verses or to be used for character pages.

How Did We Use It?




I sat down with a cup of coffee and a Snickers bar to read the 3 pages of instruction for the parent. I learned that the creator of the journal wanted to provide a tool for young users to sit down and listen to God.

I was originally going to have my teenage use this since she journals every day, but when I looked it over, I decided that it was more fitting for my 9-year-old to help get her started in digging deeper in her Bible study time.

What Did We Think?

What a great idea! The journal combines the idea of scrapbooking with the practice of journaling and focuses on spiritual matter and Bible study verses. This is a really excellent way to engage kids who have outgrown preschool Bible fun programs and need to stay focused at applying God's Word to their daily lives.

  1. My 11 year old son used this journal, but I think my 8 year old daughter would enjoy it as well! Great review.
