Hello, Brothers & Sisters in Christ!

This is a Christian New Beginnings Themed swap. I think journaling is a great way to not only grow in your relationship with God but it also gives us the opportunity to get to know ourselves a little deeper. This will be a semi-monthly swap with different themes.

I got feedback from the group that they would like longer to complete the journal. I will give about 2 weeks or so to sign-up and about a month and a half to make and send.

For this swap, you need to send:
(1) Altered Composition Book (standard size)
(1) Swap Tag


Theme: New Beginnings

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Take a composition book (specs above) and alter the (1) front cover, (2) back cover, (3) inside front cover, (4) inside back cover. No parts of the original covers should be visible when you have finished decorating.

  1. Front Cover: Senders choice of decor
  2. Back Cover: Senders choice of decor
  3. Inside Front Cover: Senders choice of decor but ADD A prayer or blessing for the recipient. Use their real name, not swap-bot name AND take care to spell it properly.
  4. Inside Back Cover: Senders choice of decor AND 3 or more bible verses relating to the theme

INSIDE (On the paper sheets)

Create at least 30 journal writing prompts based on the journal theme.

Leave at least one page in between the writing prompt pages.

You may decorate the writing prompt pages, any or all or none if you would like, it is not a requirement.

Please leave enough room for the receiver to write.

For the swap tag, include:
1) Swap name
2) Your name
3) Swap-bot name

This is a keeper journal. Once you send to your partner, your partner keeps it and does not send it back completed.

You can see the journal I made for the last swap HERE

This swap is open to all members of the Christian Swap Group from the USA that are in good standing with no recent or unexplained 1's or 3's. Rate promptly, please!

Signup with confidence as I will always angel any swap I host.

Thank you for participating!

God Bless You,

What do you mean by journaling promts?

HisChild 10/18/2016 #

Sheri, a journal prompt is a thought or question that gives the writer an idea of something to write about. For example: "God is the author of new beginnings, in what way do you feel God is leading you to do something new?"

Thank you for explaining @HisChild I didn't not see the question. Please feel free to PM me @ThrisftyUrbanMom I don't get a notice of these messages.

@ThriftyUrbanMom LOL not s

Hello Swappers. I am not sure who sends to or receives from ThriftyUrbanMom for this swap, but she has not sent several swaps. I am afraid she may not be sending her journal to her partner. I have been praying for her and reached out to her several times, but have had no response. Not sure how this should be handled, but it will be so sad for someone to not receive a journal. She and I were in a private journal swap and she did not send to me for that one either.

HisChild 11/30/2016 #

Shannonlinde, I send to her. I am hoping she is okay as well. I see that she is partially suspended for having received 6 ones recently. I'm wondering what to do about sending her swap.

shannonlinde 11/30/2016 #

I have never been in a swap where the hostess is partially suspended. I am.sure the person she is supposed to be sending to will not get a journal. She hosted a private journal swap for me and I never got it. I wonder if you should put the question to Rachel Johnson on the forums? Such a sad situation.

Does anyone know who is supposed to receive from ThriftyUrbanMom?

PeggyO 12/ 6/2016 #

And I am worrying about sending a day or two late! This is not a good situation at all! Is she the only Group Founder or Officer?

I just found out about this... I am so sorry;; I will investigate and let you know & removing her from the group... ;-(
