     How to find hope and create dreams during uncertain times

    There’s no better time than now—with so many aspects of our lives in a state of flux—to put pen to paper and find our footing through journaling. Sacramento, California Psychotherapist Michaela Renee Johnson has created an inspiring journal with thought-provoking writing prompts to help you manifest your dreams and live your best lives in  Empowered: A Motivational Journal for Women

    If you’ve always wanted to try journaling but didn’t know how to get started, take heart!  With the right tools, it can be easy, enjoyable, and most importantly, it can be absolutely life changing!

    Empowered: A Motivational Journal for Women  contains inspirational writing prompts, thought-provoking exercises and quotes worth contemplating to encourage you to open your mind, manifest your goals and reflect on your dreams.

    Written by award-winning author and licensed psychotherapist Michaela Renee Johnson, Empowered  is designed to help you connect with your deeper self and visualize your intentions through creative exercises.

    Organized around the themes of dream, believe and achieve, Empowered  includes exercises that ask you to explore your feelings and thoughts through writing, while others encourage you to go beyond the book to meditate, listen to music or enjoy nature―and return to contemplate your experiences.

    There’s no right or wrong way to use this motivational journal; the important thing is to begin. I found that once, I got going, I got really into it and found it quite satisfying to write down my feelings.


    Empowered: A Motivational Journal for Women  provides:

    Creative freedom―Explore out-of-the-box ideas like drawing and coloring, creating a vision board, or crafting a reflective poem.

    Your own space―The colorful, beautifully illustrated modern layout gives you abundant room to express yourself directly in the pages of this motivational journal.

    Inspiring words―Cultivate a positive mindset with quotes from influential women like Alice Walker, Amelia Earhart and Michelle Obama.

    You can unlock your true potential and create positive changes in your life―and journaling is a powerful way to start.

    Final thoughts

    I found this book to be so much more than your average journal and surpassed my expectations. It truly delves into your psyche to help you understand who you are and why you do the things you do. The journal prompts themselves gives substance to your entries. It pulls things out of you that you might not have considered before.

    I found the journal to be very introspective and soul-satisfying. I am very impressed with this workbook.
