Moment by Moment


Moment by Moment, by Jennifer Flanders, is a charming, functional, inspiring journal for girls.

Never a trial that He is not there, Never a burden that He doth not bear, Never a sorrow that He doth not share, Moment by moment, I’m under His care. ~hymn by Daniel W. Whittle.

When I was a child and on through my teen years, I thoroughly enjoyed writing in my journals. I was creative, contemplative, and open with my thoughts and feelings. My journals were mostly comprised of simple spiral notebooks. The reason being because my store-bought diaries and journals were designed for daily writing with dates prominently displayed at the top of the page. I found this intimidating because I didn’t have the discipline to write every day, and oftentimes didn’t have anything to say for days on end. The results were small entries hidden among large sections of blank pages. Wasting all that space was discouraging.

That’s why I LOVE this devotional journal. It is constructed in a way that is simple and approachable. The ‘anytime’ pages and prompts aren’t dated, allowing the owner to write whenever she is so inspired. She can begin on page four or page six, or page forty-six. It doesn’t matter. Just pick a page that speaks to you in that moment and write away.

Another thing I found unique about this journal is its content. It includes a variety of prompts, such as introspective questions, pages to record your birth statistics, favorite ways to spend your mornings, your family tree, and a relevant scripture verse on nearly every page.

By far, my favorite feature of this book is that it doubles as a memory book, recording your favorite things, childhood friends, Christmas memories, and more—a treasure trove of remembrances to revisit through the years.

I highly recommend this book to anyone with preteen or teenage girls. Moment by Moment is designed for preteen or teenage girls, but I recommend this book to anyone who has a young heart and the desire to probe into their lives—past, present, and future, and record their thoughts.
