Ellie Claire 365-Day Devotional Journals (Review)





I am excited to share with you more Ellie Claire products. If you remember, back during the week of Thanksgiving, I shared my version of a holiday gift guide by enlightening you with several awesome gift ideas for the holiday season complete with a giveaway! Now, I would like to highlight one of my favorite companies that I introduced you to then by sharing a NEW line of their products, now.

 Previously, I shared with you, Ellie Claire's creative writing journals. Now, I would like to introduce you to Ellie Claire's 365-Day Devotional Journals! I received three beautifully-bound journals to review:







These high-quality, thick and sturdy devotional journals are the perfect go-to gift for the mom, grandmother or friend on your gift list. When I first got them I contemplated giving them to my three oldest children as I did the journals until I realized these are geared more towards adults. Even though I am sure an older teen could gain much from these devotionals, there are references to motherhood and parenting in general which is why I am sticking to giving these as gifts to the women in my life. Of course, I do plan on keeping one for myself! All three designs are gorgeous and the theme on the cover carries through in the artwork all the way through. 




Both the Peace Begins With Me and The Earth Is The Lord's and Everything In It journals are formatted the same way. Each day begins with a verse (several different translations are used). Then, there is a short write up sharing a story or contemplation that coincides with the verse. Both journals then end with a prayer followed by half a page of lines for you to share your own personal reflection. 


The Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus journal takes on a slightly different approach. Each day begins with a quote from a song. Some quotes are from classic hymns. Several take you back to the music of the 90's while others are from songs you might hear in churches today. Following the quote is an encouraging write-up, a Scripture reference that you are encouraged to read and then a prayer. This journal also provides you with about half a page for you to jot down your personal thoughts for the day. 



Overall I would say these are high-quality devotional journals that would make great gifts! You might even want to treat yourself to one if you receive extra cash or an Amazon gift card this holiday season!
