Journal for Joy

Writing For Clarity, Transformation & Growth

Hello, sweet friend!

It’s Leslie, and I'm so glad you're here! Grab a cup of tea and stay with me for Journal for Joy: Writing For Healing, Transformation & Growth. In this self-paced course, I'll share a dozen video lessons based on my gorgeous inspiration cards and creative journal prompts to help you heal, transform and grow.

You will discover the power of the 5 Minute Sprint to capture your thoughts, integrate personal experience, gain deep insights, and tap into the vast knowledge stored in your subconscious. At the end, you'll likely be surprised and delighted with all you've gained through writes that take just 5-15 minutes.

I am passionate about showing others how to get words out onto their journal pages for healing, transformation and growth. In this course, you will learn how to...

  • Leverage the 5-Minute Sprint to quickly identify and shift your energy.
  • Honor your inner wisdom as you fill the pages of your journal.
  • Hear the whispers of your heart guiding your thoughts and actions.
  • Harness your own voice to create positive change.
  • And above all, love your life and feel joy in your journey throughout 2020.

When you enroll in Journal for Joy, you'll have immediate access to 12 video lessons with a gorgeous inspiration cards and creative journal prompt that inspires a soft, soulful look at yourself, your relationships and all you want to create in 2020.

Inspired by my 20 years of journaling, my training with Kathleen Adams, a journal therapy pioneer, and seeing what works for writers and non-writers alike, Journal for Joy offers a proven format to help you face a blank page, jot down your heartfelt thoughts, and discover your own way to healing, transformation and growth.

As a Certified Journal to the Self instructor, I've seen again and again the beautiful outcomes... if you're stressed and overwhelmed, you will find healing. If you're missing the joy in your life, you will recognize the abundance that surrounds you. If you're lost and uncertain, you will find the right path. Journal for Joy will help you gently explore a deeper, richer, more authentic connection with your inner voice. The good news is: you don't have to be a writer or devote a lot of time to experience the benefits.
