52 Mondays: one for each (happy) Monday of the year
The 52 Mondays series is an invitation to live seasonally and mindfully. It is a set of four seasonal journals created to help you show up with joy and on purpose in every season.
My journals invite you to tune into and lean into the literal/climatic season you’re in and even more importantly, the emotional season you are in. In either case, my hope is that they will help you be present to and mine for the wisdom and beauty in every season of your life.

SUMMER IS ON ITS WAY
My guided journals offer encouragement at the start of every week to help you show up fully – with joy and on purpose – to your imperfect & beautiful life in every season.

“Love this journal. It’s nice to sit and contemplate her poems, writings, questions and directions once a week every week as I go through the rhythm of life. I have completed the Spring, Summer and now just started the Fall series. They are a necessary part of my life routine. I also follow her on Facebook as she has some awesome realistic life posts that are relatable and real world.”-Jennifer
Tell Me More
52 Mondays is a series of pretty, soft-cover journals offering a seasonal reflection (and lovely art!) to start off each week with new food for thought and a hearty dose of hope & encouragement.
Each of the weekly reflections (13 per seasonal journal) offers 3 prompts that invite you to “pause & consider” along with 8 dotted pages to sketch/doodle, journal your thoughts, or washi-tape in small seasonal treasures. Or, you may choose to use it as your bullet or gratitude journal.
They’re light enough to keep in your bag to pull out when you have a few minutes here and there or you might keep it by your bed and make it part of your daily rhythm.
However you use my journals, I hope they help you live awake to the gifts in every season and call you to put down deeper roots of self-awareness and self-compassion. I hope they help you show up fully – with joy and on purpose – to your imperfect and beautiful life.
“This is absolutely stunning. Beautifully illustrated with thoughtful prompts. I will finish the current notebook I have and start this in spring! I loved it so much I brought a copy to give to a friend.”-Emma

About the Winter Session
All proceeds from my winter journal help fund an art scholarship in my son, Jairus’, name; Jairus left this world Oct 23, 2019, at 23 years of age.
Jairus knew from the age of 7 or 8 that he wanted to be an illustrator, then an animator, and after high school, he studied animation and game design. Art was an integral part of who he was – and of our family culture.
My winter journal was mostly complete before my son died and choosing to publish it is an act of love and part of my choice to keep living.
Profits from products using Jairus’ art will also fund the scholarship – click here to check out the shop.
**(Please be careful to buy the right journal – someone made a knock-off of my journal on Amazon and I’m waiting for Amazon to deal with this.)
THANK YOU to everyone who has donated or purchased a winter journal – $11K CAD has been raised so far. I am so grateful for your support. xo
*Journals are available in all amazon stores so you can use the one closest to you.
“I love this book. I have been following Krista’s blog for years now. She is fabulous and that shows in this book. I love the questions meant to get you to think. They help me express what my heart feels. Wonderful, highly recommend!”-Teresa
How to use the 52 Mondays Journal Series
There is no “perfect starting time” for each seasonal journal and depending on where you live in the world your sense of when each season begins can vary. Start each journal when it feels best to you but you might use the following schedule if you live in the northern hemisphere:
- Spring Session: March, April, May (or April, May, June)
- Summer Session: June, July, August (or July, Aug, Sept)
- Autumn Session: September, October, November (or Oct, Nov, Dec)
- Winter Session: December, January, February (or Jan, Feb, March)
These journals are not big moneymakers – they started as an act of love and a first response to the many women who asked me to share my words in a way they could hold in their hands. Writing these journals unexpectedly served as a life-line for me throughout the most painful year of my life (I would not have kept going without the collaboration & support of Betsy Huggins) and I will now use proceeds from the Winter Session to establish an art scholarship in my son, Jairus’, name.
NOW WHAT? If you’re having trouble finding the journal on the Amazon shop nearest you, click on my author page here in the States or here in Canada to find all four journals. And a hearty thank you to everyone who takes the time to leave a review on Amazon because reviews tell Amazon to show my journals to more people. xo
