Find reasons for gratitude and hope as you encounter scripture and discover its meaning in your life with the beautifully designed Living the Word Companion Journal.

This journal is the perfect complement to the Living the Word Catholic Women’s Bible. It will help you to be drawn in again and again to a community of women who share your desire to live God’s Word in their everyday lives. Journaling in conjunction with the Living the Word Bible will help you take the readings to heart and grow in intimacy with the Lord.

The journal’s stunning design is patterned after the Living the Word Catholic Women’s Bible and includes flowing pastel swaths, a full-color interior, and elegant type. This hardcover cloth book with gold stamping is both beautiful and durable—the perfect accompaniment for weeks of prayer, journaling, and reflection.

Using the same trusted translation as the Living the Word Bible the Revised Standard Version, Second Catholic Edition—unique features of the Living the Word Companion Journal include

  • direct references to special features in the Living the Word Bible such as Women of the Word profiles;
  • a 100-day reading plan not found in the Living the Word Bible;
  • prompts that allow you to apply what you learn to everyday life;
  • abundant space throughout to journal your thoughts, questions, and prayer intentions;
  • places to highlight and illustrate meaningful Bible verses;
  • sections titled “Taking Stock,” which encourage you to reflect on what you’ve learned in the past ten days; and
  • an index of the Women of the Word, both the scripture passages that reference them and their profiles, in the Bible.

The Living the Word Companion Journal—created by Sarah Christmyer, general editor of the Living the Word Catholic Women’s Bible—will become a keepsake that you can refer to at different stages of your life and share with those you love. It is perfect for individual or group use.
