My Review of three NEW Devotional Journals by Ellie Claire (brand)


Today, I'm sharing my reviews of three devotional journals by one of my favorite creative brands, Ellie Claire! Here's the cover design for each journal:

Worthy Publishing Group gave me (Alexis A. Goring) these products by in exchange for an honest review. This by no means impacted my decision of the journals and all opinions are my own.

Now on to the reviews...


My Review of Ellie Claire’s 
“Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus: A 365-Day Devotional Journal”:


I like the cover design of this devotional journal because of the soft, pastel colors and flower/vine design. I found it to be appealing because it reminded me of spring and as I write this, winter is approaching and I don’t like the cold. So having a journal to start writing in as cold weather and snow makes its seasonal appearance is comforting.

This devotional journal definitely would have attracted my attention because of its cover design and brand (I love Ellie Claire products)!

The art style and devotions in this book work really well together because the color theme and font style are similar to the cover design. Each devotional is short and sweet with an inspirational message that will touch your heart.

“Prayer: The Map to God” the devotional for November 11 is one of my favorites because of the title and content. The message for that day in my journal really spoke to my experience with GPS (navigational systems) and encouraged me to never stop praying because God is always willing to listen. He’s also ready to help at any time.

The paper thickness of each page is enough to support the ink from your pen or marker without leaking onto the next page.

I plan to use this devotional daily. Anyone female from age 12 to 100 in any career or from any background would probably love to receive this journal as a gift and would benefit from using it!

*Buy this journal on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

My Review of Ellie Claire’s
“The Earth Is the Lord’s and Everything In It: A 365-Day Devotional Journal”:


The cover design for this devotional journal is rich in color, elegant and elaborate. The design appealed to me from the moment I saw it, drawing me into the richness and elegance. Blue is one of my favorite colors so the beautiful blue color of the peacocks on the front cover enthralled me. This product would definitely have caught my attention as I browsed through a bookstore!

The art style and devotions in the book works very well together as the upper body of a peacock and a flower from the front cover are pictured on the bottom corners of each page in this journal.

The devotions and quotes inside the journal were very inspirational! One of my favorites is the entry for June 12 titled, “The God Who Sings.” I never thought of God as a singer but He created music so I guess it makes sense! This is supported by the Bible in Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV). Now I cannot wait to hear God sing when we get to Heaven!

The paper thickness of each page is enough to support the ink from your pen or marker without leaking onto the next page.

I plan to give away this journal to someone who I believe will be blessed by it. But if I were keeping it for myself, I’d write in it every day, starting on January 1, 2019!

My Review of Ellie Claire’s
“Peace Begins with Me: A 365-Day Devotional Journal”:


The cover design for this journal is soft and looks like a work of art as if a painter dipped their paintbrush in a gorgeous light green color then graced the cover with fluid strokes. The result is a light green-creamy white marble look and it is gorgeous!

If I were browsing through a bookstore, I would definitely stop to pick up this journal and flip through the pages! The art style and devotions within this product work well together because the left and right of each page has a thin border that’s the same color of the front and back cover of this journal. It creates a beautiful design and accent.

The devotions and quotes in this journal are inspirational. One of my favorite devotions within this journal is from April 2, which is titled, “The Immovable Anchor.” It’s based on a Psalm 93:3 (NIV) and reminds me that God is my anchor in the midst of any storm that I may go through in this life. After reading this devotion, my heart is encouraged to persevere and continue leaning into God.

The paper thickness of each page is enough to support the ink from your pen or marker without leaking onto the next page.

I plan to give this journal away too but only because I believe that someone will be blessed by it and I only need one devotional journal to write in for the New Year 2019.

*Buy this journal on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
