Welcome to Journaling with God!

Hi, I'm Brandie Johnson, the founder of The Identity Initiative, an effort to encourage believers to be who God created them to be. Journaling with God is a brand of The Identity Initiative, and it's a project that is very near and dear to my heart.
Ever since I heard the Lord God say, "Identity starts with intimacy," it's been on repeat in my head. So much so that I had to put it on something! The Lord gave me the idea for my first journal to sell as a way to encourage others on their identity journey.


Intimacy with God is the starting point for our identities.

We come to know who we are as we get to know Him. God has so much in store for you, but the only way you’ll get to know these things is if you first call on Him. The purpose of Journaling with God is to foster an atmosphere of attentiveness to the voice of God through the practice of journaling. 

Journaling with God is one of many intimate ways to connect with the Lord. Here's what I love about this particular method: when you journal, you have a well-documented log of the time that you spend calling out to God as well as how He answers you.

The Journaling with God journals, prompts, and workshops help you posture your heart to hear from the Lord. Shop our selection of beautifully designed journals today!
