  1. I would write notes for the series I’m writing currently. I love having various journals to carry around with me all the time.

    By the way, big congratulations on this release, Carla!

  2. I don’t think I should enter since I won a previous giveaway. But congratulations, it’s exciting!

  3. I would jot randomness in it for story use…things I overhear, character names, settings…Love journals!!

  4. I would use it for a prayer journal.

  5. I would jot down thoughts for my blog about mast cell activation disorder.

  6. I would record the adorable things my grandson and granddaughter say.

  7. I would use mine for my journal and prayers. I have been doing this since 1983.

  8. Hmm…I’d probably use the Moleskine as a reading journal. :)

  9. I would either begin a new prayer journal, or (most likely) a ‘memoir’ of my life “from wedded bliss-babies-& losing it to recover”, well working title at least ;)

  10. I would write down sentences or paragraphs that catch my attention and or speak to me.

  11. I would use it for plotting my novels!

  12. To keep my eyes focused on Jesus, I would write down the blessings of each day. A journal of thanksgiving.

  13. I’d plot ways to kill people and to introduce mass chaos. Fiction, of course. ;)

  14. Journal or list of books I wanna read.

  15. If I won this journal I’d have a hayday filling it. My husband and I recently came across an old bin full of old books my grandfather and father-in-law owned. Both two deceased so they are quit precious to us. The books upon inspection are very old and some were written by some of our favorite father’s in the Faith like D.L.Moody and Talmage. There is also a Bible with the publication date of 1648. I have been reading through them and writing down some amazing nuggets. I’m going to need more journals!! ;)

  16. I think a prayer journal. Or just reflecting on my life. It looks wonderful! I would love it.

  17. Writing out scripture. It helps me memorize better :)

  18. I would write down what I remember about each day with my kids. I love to write down memories so I will never forget them!!

    Congrats on your release!

  23. I am a songwriter and would fill the pages with lyrics, score ideas and chord progressions.

  27. I would use it to journal about anything and everything! :)

  32. It’s so pretty I may have a hard time giving myself permission to write in it. Lol. But…I do have fountain pens that I’ve had since high school/jr. high. Time to resurrect using them. I think, since it’s so pretty, that I would use it to finally start keeping a collection of all the various quotes, Scriptures I acquire that I love. instead of on random notebooks/papers etc putting them all in one place. Like Jan Karon did for Father Tim’s quotes.
    such an awesome giveaway. thanks for offering it.

  33. I have a journal that I have kept for my son. I started with “The Story of Us” which is how I met his father (my husband). I continue to chronicle important dates, milestones, blessings, words of encouragement and love. When he is older I want him to know how much he has always meant to me.
    This journal is so beautiful that I would like to use it to start a mother-daughter journal for our little girl.

  36. I’d give the journal to my husband- it looks perfect for him!

  38. I would probably keep a journal, or jot down story ideas. Thanks for the giveaway!
