A collaborative family journal
The simplicity of documenting your life together will blossom into a truly authentic, collaborative project involving every member of the family. Through writing and drawing, each family member documents ordinary moments to build your family story.
A truly authentic family story
The Kinship Family Journal captures your family's story through the perspective of each family member. As each family member participates in documenting your life together a unique family story will emerge told by the entire family. You'll create an authentic family story and a coveted family heirloom that your children are sure to fight over when you're gone.
Capture every moment
By taking the time to document all the ordinary moments that fill our everyday life, we build an authentic record of our life together, and moment by moment, we are writing our family story.
Create deeper family connections
Something magical happens as we become aware of life's extraordinary ordinary moments. We become more mindful, grateful, and connected as we record and share memories about what we did, what was special and what was funny. You'll love flipping through the pages with your children, recalling memories, and chatting over the tiny (and big) moments of your life together. Deeper connections will develop, both within your family, and to the world around you as you document your life together.

What's inside the Kinship Family Journal?
The Kinship Family Journal guides you through 12 months of life together. We've included two very simple but effective ways of recording your family story ― Monthly calendars, and open pages with thought provoking prompts.
Monthly calendar pages
Most calendars are made for planning, but the Kinship Family Journal calendar is made for recording. The monthly calendars offer plenty of open space to document with a birds eye view of each month. Recording weather, family events, and the first snowman of the year develops a sense of rhythm, time and place and are a joy to look back on. The calendars are undated so you can start your family journal right now!
Open pages with prompts
Following each monthly calendar are ten open pages with prompts. These prompts guide you through documenting your life together with an emphasis on recording what your family has done, observations of the world around you, and the connections you form with each other.
Some prompts are repeated each month to help you record special moments like; Places we went, things we did, weather observations, and more....
We also add a few unique prompts each month that create fun ways of interacting and capturing each family members personality, including; Self portraits, draw "A day in the life of...", what are you grateful for, and more...

Time Lapse Video
Here's a fun video of the Kinship Family Journal in use! Our entire family jotted down our notes on the "Projects We Did" and "Nature & Weather Observations" pages. We had done some felting of acorns and imaginary characters for the page on the left and jotted down our notes for the month's outdoor observations. It truly is such a fun and authentic way to capture memories as a family!
