I have been a diary keeper and journal writer since 4th grade. I had an electronic Dear Diary and a red journal (I believe it was a coca-cola one) with a lock & key. I kept all of my personal secrets in there - who I had crushes on, how mean my sister or cousin was, how awesome my sister or cousin was. Everything. I've had varying colors, styles, but none since 4th grade with a lock. Even in my early years of motherhood, I've kept a journal. I even keep a journal for each of my children and my husband, although none of them reads the ones I keep for them and I'm not as diligent with theirs. I tried to do a DIY Q&A journal for my kids and I've been terrible at keeping up.

I love the idea of a 5 year journal! I love seeing growth in my children and myself, so I would love documented proof of this. I really like the Q&A journal and would like to get the children's versions for my kids. I think they are old enough now (the older two, of course) to write one sentence about their day or something. Just an idea.
The only thing I dislike about the Q&A journal are some of the questions are cheesy. Who is your enemy? What?! Enemy?! What am I, a queen? I don't really have enemies. There were just a few silly questions, but I suppose I could cross them out and come up with my own if they are too hokey. What I'd really love is a Christian version of this journal to see the growth in my spiritual life.
