What if journaling could change your life?
What if writing could help usher in healing + hope right where you are?
My personal experience has revealed what research proves: journaling is a tool that can transform your life. Join my live journaling workshops to discover the power of processing on the page in your life.
No matter where you are on your healing and writing journey, journaling can be the key that unlocks new paths for your heart, mind, and spirit.

You'll be able to take the wisdom and tools you'll gain from the workshop and apply them to your own journal practice.

September's Journal Workshop
I so appreciated that our time together was intentional, inspiring, productive, and restful all at the same time. Encouraging us to ask questions while we were journaling helped me make a connection between two things from my past that I had never thought were related! It was extremely helpful and healing! Thank you! for creating a safe space for my soul to breathe and uncover disjointed thoughts and feelings.
And the care ideas for after the class and suggestions for transitioning out of the journaling experience were so so helpful. I landed in some really helpful new places through the session and afterwards with follow up work that I don’t think I would have gotten to without your great reflection questions.
Thank you so much!"
When I feel anxious, I can feel it in my lungs. It’s like there’s a lion sitting on my lungs, and I can’t get a deep breath. I felt that way for a few days. And I don’t anymore, and I didn’t by about half way through our time tonight… I really really appreciated this time.
DO I NEED ANY PRIOR JOURNALING OR WRITING EXPERIENCE?
Nope! Just an interested and willing heart. Writers and non-writers of all experience levels are welcome and can benefit from these workshops.
WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE THE DATE AND TIME? DO YOU OFFER RECORDINGS OR REPLAYS?
Workshop recordings are available exclusively for Pen & Mend Collective members and are not included with a one-time pass. If you can't make the workshop live, consider signing up for a monthly membership to access these perks and more (and even save $). Learn more here. The day of the week and time will change for each month's workshop so please check back for future sessions that might work better for your schedule.
CAN YOU E-MAIL ME THE PROMPTS?
Unfortunately, not with a one-time workshop pass. Prompts are another perk reserved exclusively for the members of the Pen & Mend Collective. Sign up for the collective here.
I DON'T IDENTIFY AS CHRISTIAN / I'M UNSURE WHERE MY FAITH STANDS AT THE MOMENT. ARE THESE WORKSHOPS RIGHT FOR ME?
While I personally live and write from a Christian faith perspective, and my writing practices are informed by my faith, all faith backgrounds are welcome.
I'VE ATTENDED A WORKSHOP IN THE PAST. WILL THE CONTENT BE THE SAME?
Each workshop format will be similar in layout and practice, and you might notice some overlap in tips and strategies, but each month's theme will be slightly different in content, offering a unique experience each time.
WHAT IF I REGISTER AND THEN CAN'T MAKE IT. WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?
I get it. Life happens. And sometimes we just plain forget (which is why I'll help by sending a few reminders). Unfortunately, there are no refunds for missed sessions. Instead, your payment will become a credit that may be applied to a future session.
