September Journal Prompts

Welcome to September! Here is a listing of journal prompts you can use this month. We use these in our journaling projects, live-streams, social media posts and even to spark conversation around the dinner table.

If you have not started a regular routine of connecting with your family and encouraging your children to express themselves, I challenge you to join us for our monthly family journaling project. No rules on how to engage – just a daily prompt and a challenge to share your thoughts via words, song, art, or whatever way your heart desires.
