“I love my journal! Because of my many hats and responsibilities, I find myself sometimes feeling a bit overwhelmed. I appreciate the way it is formatted and helps to guide my thoughts. It keeps me honest with my feelings and thoughts in that moment. It keeps me focused. It reminds me to not only have hope but how to find it and maintain it. I always recommend writing as a way to release and reflect. This is an excellent journal for yourself AND to gift to others."

What an exciting 45 days!! Full of daily discoveries! After my prayer time I couldn’t wait for “HOPE” to be stirred inside of me. During the 2nd half of reading, it was though the words spoke directly to what I had just experience that day. I am glad that this wasn’t just an exercise but an encouraging journey that awakened my Hope !!!

In a world where every thing is so chaotic. Where you can sometimes feel surrounded by total despair. Along comes a journal that does not give the answers but encourages you to look within and find the answers that were already there. That challenges you to hope again. Yes to even hope against hope. A wonderful tool to keep you focus on your purpose.

It takes 3 to 4 weeks of consistence and intentional commitment of doing anything to develop a habit. "Today I Hoped For..." is so timely. It gives you a solid base to not only develop and strengthen Hope in your life but also to develop journaling. Both are tools that has helped navigate through the times we are in. Anytime is a Good time for Hope. Thank you, Paris ,for doing your part in keeping "Hope Alive".

This journal has encouraged me to hope. I actually did not realize how hopeless I felt until I began the daily practice of writing down the things I hope for. Whether big or small, I think the hoping mindset allows me to start my day with joy and anticipation. I am grateful for this journal. It has been a gift.
