About

A powerful, yet easy-to-use journal to pray, give thanks, encourage others, generate ideas, and reach your goals faster than ever.

The Encourage My Life (EML) Journal is a paper planner designed with your passions, prayers, and encouragement in mind. It powerfully balances utility, personal development, and strengthening relationships in one personal journal.

This journal measures the size of a standard sheet of paper and is bound in a soft leather cover. The paper itself is about 1.8 times thicker than a basic sheet of printer paper to fight ink bleed-through, and the journal itself is about 250 pages (125 leaves). It's made up of a three-month planner with designated sections for goals, offering praise, giving thanks, and space to create ideas. It's non-dated, meaning you can start your journal as soon as you get it - no need to wait for a New Year's resolution. 

  • Three-month journal with directed questions, prayer, and blank pages to dream big and create new ideas every day for three months
  • 21-day encouragement challenge** with inspiring quotes and ideas to shape you into a better listener, leader, and encourager
  • Seven influences## - a personal inventory of the people you are influencing and those who are developing you in the most critical areas of your life, like faith, family, and leadership
  • BONUS (book only) 25 productivity hacks to help you realize your 3-month goals
  • BONUS (book only) Goal planner walks you through your 3-month, year, 5-year, 10-year, and 20-year goals

The whole point of this journal is to get you to pray, give thanks, learn, encourage others, track your goals, and dream big. That's why we will continue to share it for free. 

##Sign up for news and send proof that you shared this Kickstarter page (for example, a screenshot), and our team will send you the full, 3-month .pdf when our Kickstarter ends. We'll send you another bonus gift too that's an extension of the Seven Influences, just because you're helping and we want to thank you for making this possible.

We want you to create, spend quality time with our Father, build into people, and take care of yourself by planning your days and setting goals. We want this to be in the hands of every underdog, creative, starter, and leader, so the .pdf will always be free, but if you'd like the leather journal, you can get one by picking a pledge to the right.

If you'd like to pick up a bundle of these for a ministry group, such as youths, young adults, or a couples group, we're offering packs of 10 books to the right in the Ministry Bundle reward.

PRO TIP: Print it out and staple it to a manila folder. It's portable and you can write all over a manila folder to customize it to your needs. 

Benefits:

  • Offer praise. Scripture says to enter His courts with thanksgiving; enter His courts with praise.
  • Give thanks. Write down three things you're thankful for every day. Challenge yourself to be thankful even in the small things.
  • Generate ideas. Fill in the space with a new story idea, a new product, or even an event. Creativity is a discipline that you have to make time and space for.
  • Set goals. You're wired to see your goals. Write down the two biggest hurdles you're facing every day and then go do them. Everything else plays a supporting role.
  • Plan ahead. This runs from 12 am to 12 pm, broken into 60-minute increments because not everyone works 9 am to 5 pm.
  • Pray daily. Each day, you have a specific prayer for your employees and/or your family, designed to strengthen you as a leader. If you have neither, you can pray for your coworkers.
  • Customize it. There is ample space to doodle, dream, and make this yours. Life doesn't fit into half-inch margins; why should you?
  • Journal. Go through the daily questions to evaluate who you are helping, who you are encouraging, and what you are learning.
  • Encouraging quotes. The complementary 21-day encouragement challenge and 7-influences exercises are packed with reminders to inspire you. 

**Encourage someone new every day for 21 days: wear a bracelet or a rubber band, keep it face down at the start of every day, and flip it over when you complete that day's challenge - when you finish the 21 days without stopping or restarting, keep the bracelet face up. PREVIEW THE 21-DAY CHALLENGE HERE.

Risks and challenges

The biggest hurdle we face is getting your journal to you as soon as possible. While Church Films is still a new company, this is our third crowdfunding campaign. The first two were successful, but even so, setbacks can happen in terms of manufacturing and shipping after the campaign wraps, so we ask for patience in advance. When the Kickstarter wraps, please respond to your survey as quickly as possible so that we can get your journal to you on time.
