The Plans I have For You Journal by Amy Parker is an amazing addition to the The Plans I have For You Devotional! I love journals and encourage my children to keep one but having one that goes along with a devotional will be especially wonderful to have when my daughter is grown up. To be able to have a journal to look back on and realize that even as a child, God had a plan. The illustrations in the journal are wonderful and my daughter enjoys using this journal with The Plans I have For You Devotional. This is a terrific way to dive even deeper into the Devotional and would make a terrific gift for any child! Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for my honest review. I only recommend products I've used personally, and believe will be good fit for consumers.
