Hi friends! Sorry it's been a little quiet over here this past month. Toward the end of April, it occurred to me that I should write a companion journal for us to work through as we read The Two Towers together this summer - and since we are planning on beginning in early June, I dropped everything and spent every spare moment reading, writing, and editing!
I'm so happy to share that I've finally sent it off to the printer, approved the proof, and am expecting the journals to be in my hands in early June. I wanted to share with you two previews of the journal, something I'm so incredibly proud of! I had the joy of working with Jen Olson of Fiore Design Studio as she designed the beautiful cover image which brings the whole journal together! I can't wait to see how it looks when it's printed and bound. It will be a half-letter size and about 70 pages, so not too big and not too small. ;)
Each chapter includes a reflection on a theme, quality, or quote from the book. I’ve included space for lettering favorite quotes or doodling, as well as lined area for note-taking and discussion. My hope is to foster a love for beauty and truth as it is present in Tolkien’s world, to draw you closer to Christ through its meaning and philosophy, and to inspire you to action through journaling prompts.
Simply put, I want us all to become a little more like hobbits.
I've included the first two chapters for you to download for FREE and see what you think!
And if you'd like to be the first to know when the journals do become available, join our Facebook Group!
