Over the past couple of years, I’ve learned how helpful journaling with prompts can be, which is why I’ve put together a powerful list of journaling prompts for homemakers.
There are times we need help trying to solve a problem, are wanting to grow in a specific area, or just want to see what God wants us to see, and journaling out all of our thoughts helps us accomplish this. It’s different than verbally answering a question, because the power of writing down our thoughts help us understand things from a completely different perspective.
Why You Should Start Journaling
Journaling is a great way for us to get out of our minds and into what God wants us to see. While journaling does involve us writing out our thoughts, it helps us move past that and into a new space of thinking.
Journaling prompts provide a focus for writing and often help us explore thoughts we didn’t know we had, help us create new thoughts, and allow us to let go of thoughts that don’t serve us.

When You Should Journal
Journaling can be done at any time, but I recommend developing the habit of journaling daily. This will allow you to grow in your faith in ways you can’t even imagine.
I personally include journaling in my time with God each morning. It is one way to ensure that it gets done, I receive God’s message for the day, and am able to carry it with me throughout the entire day.
By focusing daily on specific verses, lists, or freewriting to help you bring out God’s message for you that day, you open yourself up to many blessings you wouldn’t receive otherwise.
Why Journaling as a Homemaker is Important
As a homemaker, we have a huge purpose in caring for our home and those within it. By journaling each morning, we are able to lean into that purpose better than without journaling.
It also helps us stay in a place of gratefulness and contentment, which I feel is especially helpful!
Being a homemaker is a high calling from God and staying to connected to that calling is easier with journaling.
Journaling Prompts for Homemakers
I’ve divided the journaling prompts into different categories that are especially helpful as homemakers. This includes:
All of these are important areas to grow in as homemakers, which is why I wanted to focus on each of them.
