What's a Guided Journal?

Guided journals help you tell your story. They are organized for you about specific topics -- like a child's life or your marriage or your whole life.  We take the time to research specific topics and ask you thought provoking questions in a fun, upbeat style. Those questions help you capture memories and that helps you celebrate your life's treasures!

Just pull one off the shelf, answer the questions and put it back. Over time it becomes a keepsake! 

READ THIS…™ is an original series of guided journals.   

GUIDED JOURNALS INSPIRE YOU TO CAPTURE LIFE’S TREASURES!

 


Why We Write Guided Journals

The subject of death brought us together and we started writing guided journals to help people celebrate life!

We created the Read This...™ guided journal series to help people capture life's treasures - memories and experiences, stories and family history that is too easily lost. So far we have three guided journals:

Read This…™ When I'm Dead
Read This…™ On Our Anniversary
Read This…™ On Your Birthday

While leading busy lives, we found it easier and way more fun to write them together. Plus we all know that two heads are better than one! -- So we became the Read This Gurus.
