What Our Customers Say About Our Journaling Software

I have been using LifeJournal for almost ten years now, and often give the software as a gift. I enjoy the newsletters, which often give me an inspirational boost. You have a wonderful product, one that I dreamed of, searched for and found by googling "journal writing software". It has far surpassed my expectations.
--Alice Smith

Can I just say, I love your journaling software! I may leave it for a while, but I always come back. It puts such flexiblity into the structure of my journal writing, it is unlike any other journal system I've ever used. Thank you very much for developing Life Journal!
-- Sue Caskey

When I formed my seminar on creating health and vitality I wanted a to offer to my participants a journal that would inspire and open possibilities for them while they were journaling. When I purchased the Life Journal 2 software and began using it I was amazed. I have never been thrilled with journaling in my past and now I find myself looking forward to using the program. It opened up possibilities for me in journaling that I had not ever expected. I recommend this program for anyone wanting a powerful and inspiring environment to do their journaling.

"LifeJournal is a psychological anchor during crisis. Far beyond efficiency, organization, and inspiration, LifeJournal allows a safe and private location to express my deepest feelings. I have been journaling and writing for years, but LifeJournal now allows me to write without roadblocks. During challenging times, I am not always able to connect my heart and mind with a blank page and pen. As a writer, I know I should write to investigate my inner feelings, but the blank page represents a list of "woulda", "coulda", "shoulda's" pointing directly to my current block. In comparison, LifeJournal invites me into the process with inspirational prompts, quotes, and operational ease. LifeJournal offers promise not pressure. In addition, as an illustrator, LifeJournal also allows the seamless integration of art within the written text."

LifeJournal is hands down the best journaling software on the market, and I love it and recommend it. Thanks for the personalized help, another reason to recommend LifeJournal.

LifeJournal is -- and has been -- a tool that opens incredibly wonderful paths for learning to name and live deeply the joys, failures, weaknesses, and victories that form my creative and spiritual growth.

A session with LifeJournal before discussing--almost anything of importance--with my husband provides me inner clarity and deeper focus when we engage in these conversations.

The most magnificent opening going to Life Journal creates is in development of a true "working relationship" and endlessly (I believe) deepening conversation with my Creator.

Because of the lovely palette of background colors, font style/color possibilities, and tools like Daily Pulse, naming and choosing icons, and unique writing environments for various kinds of journals -- and the delight creating a life history within the core of all that, I move to a "new world" that is distinct, private and pleasing. I find within the LifeJournal "world" a sense of comfort, support and freedom to speak and dream that is absent in the environment of Word and other work-related software. You have created a lovely and enduring tool for your LifeJournal customers. I thank you for that--and for the personal attention you give those who are blessed to use your creation.

"Thanks so much for such a cool product that gives me just a bit more incentive to write and kick procrastination's butt."
-- Pam Durant

LifeJournal is the "Cadillac" of journaling software.
-- Gary Bisogna, psychologist

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have over four years worth of entries with anywhere from a few lines to many pages, but something every day. LifeJournal is a great tool, and although I sometimes fight the urge to switch to Word because of the more sophisticated editing capabilities, I have never found anything that comes close to LifeJournal for the perfect blend of form and function. It's all about the writing, after all!
-- Russ Lemker

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am very much enjoying this remarkable piece of journal software. Am looking forward to making it my overall think space rather than continuing with just a daily style journal; it seem like a waste of useful features/layout to do otherwise."
-- S. Alli

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LifeJournal is a great program, and I'm determined to use it daily, at least fifteen minutes. Writing daily, a "brain dump," really seems to spark my creativity for the rest of the day.
-- Jamia Kelly

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for your in-person, immediate personal assistance. Combined with a top-its-class software application, this makes LifeJournal one of the finest software development firms I have ever known.
-- Scott Albers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had used another journaling software (Journal 4) for a while. Just today I found LifeJournal and tried it. Wow--what a difference! LifeJournal is SO much more user-friendly. Even the most basic things--like finding your past entries--are much clearer in LifeJournal. Before I dreaded going into the other journaling software and wasting my time. Now, I can't wait to open LifeJournal and write in it. Thanks for an awesome program!
-- Debbie Meadows

Although I have kept journals sporadically through my 56 years, LifeJournal has enabled me to accomplish more in less time and with greater self-awareness.
-- B. Wright

I love LifeJournal and its newsletters--it is always a highlight to get the next edition. When I'm stressed from the day job I actually look forward to hearing the little startup tune when going into LJ2!!

Morning Pages brought me to journaling, which brought me to LifeJournal, which gave me the courage to develop and set up my own web site. The site was to supposed to be for my visual art (I am a painter), but journaling and writing for the web site made me realise I should be writing as well as painting.

As a result, my visual work is progressing well now and I am doing a creative writing course, have come back to writing short stories (which I gave up years ago), and believe it or not, during the process of re-organising my life so I could fit in writing AND painting, with money found JUST through getting more efficient, we have been able to take up an apartment in Paris as well as our house in the country! Now I write in town and paint in the country.

It's great journaling software. Software that heals, hmmm, who would have thought, even 20 years ago, that a 'machine' that heals, would ever be a possibility! LifeJournal is without a doubt THE best 'personal' software I have ever bought. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
-- Ann Isik

Several years ago, I decided that switching to the computer, as a means of journaling, would be a good idea. I type 92 words a minute, and typing my journal entries would significantly cut down on the hours I spend actually writing longhand in a book. I, of course, had no kind of journaling software, so I just used Microsoft Word. That experiment was a dismal failure. There was no way to find anything; there was no way to keep entries in any kind of order, as Word dates things by "date modified", and every time you open a document it is considered to be modified. It drove me absolutely nuts, so I gave up and went back to pen and paper.

Then my boyfriend bought me LifeJournal for Valentine's Day. I thought it was really sweet, but I almost didn't try it. I had been after him for eons to write me some journaling software, and he just never found the time to do it, so I thought it was kind of a cop out. After I got over my pout, I went ahead and tried it out, and I love it. I've used it ever since. It saves in chronological order, and that makes my life so much easier. I like that I can assign topics to my entries, so I can tell, at a glance, what I was dealing with/feeling, and I lovelovelove the prompts feature. I've always tried to write something every day, and sometimes writers block or lethargy really hampers that goal. With the prompts option, I'm able to write something every single day. If I don't have a topic of my own, it's so easy to just hit the prompts button and answer a question. I've actually written some of my best, most introspective and in-depth journal entries using that feature.

My set up was seamless. It's difficult not to notice all the attention to detail that your website and communications include.
-- George Collins

Iíve been using LifeJournal for several months now and Iím certain that this is far and away the best journaling software Iíve come across. It has more value than any other journaling software Iíve tried. I think I checked out about 6 or 7 of them. I love that you can take the information that youíve written and slice it and dice it in ways that will give you insight into your life. Itís innovative. Much different than the other journaling software which are just word processors on steroids. This is really different. And itís easy to learn. I was up and writing a journal entry in the first 2 minutes of opening the program. Within an hour I tried out and understood all of the main features. And I love that there is such depth to the program. Even now, several months later, I'm discovering new bits of the program that deepen my writing.

I just want to say thank you for such a killer app. I've written hundreds of Word documents as journal entries, and you're journaling software was able to import them without a great hassle. I now have ALL my journal writing under one umbrella. This make life SO much easier. I really can't thank you enough for Life Journal.

Instead of spending the weekend doing all the practical things, like paying bills and cleaning the apartment, I spent the majority of the weekend writing. Procrastination in reverse! This is easily the best forty dollars I've ever spent in my life. Thanks so much,

I kept a journal when I was young to help the sorting process. Now due to ill health I am forced to keep a journal, and I am finding this program absolutely amazing. Apart from record keeping and the Daily Pulse Graph, the prompts and quotes have made me aware of so many thoughts and feelings I didn't know I had. Bringing them to the surface will undoubtedly go a great way to recovery. And for the first time in my life I am enjoying journaling. I can feel the benefits of it. Thank you for a great program,
-- Francoise

I can stop looking now!!

For years I have been trying to keep a journal. I have tried hand written journals but never really felt comfortable with putting down everything I should since anyone could just pick it up and read to there hearts' content.

I started looking for journaling software programs to satisfy the requirements. But everything I found was lacking something. I must have looked at 15 to 20 programs ranging from pathetic to incredibly complex. Sometimes I would try it for a few weeks others for just a few minutes. But always the same result - DELETE.

Then I found "Life Journal". It had everything I was looking for and then some. The "Daily Pulse" feature is excellent. The Daily Entries are simple to use and allow you to tag or bookmark them for easy recall by virtually any organizational method you would need. This alone was enough for me to be more than satisfied.

But when I started to look at the Life History feature, I was blown away. It is the reason why keeping a journal became so important to me. I wanted to have something to give my kids when they got older. Something that they could refer to when they hit difficult times. Something to help them know and understand me better. I would give almost anything if I had something like this from my parents.

I have had such a good time with this journaling software. The prompts are really helpful. Through them, I have looked at some points of my life that I haven't thought about in years, even through two years of psychotherapy.

I usually do my own events of the day and then use the timer to use the prompts, otherwise I would be at the journal 24/7. I'm hoping to be able to get the software for my daughters.

I have 3 daughters and they each have a daughter. Could Mother and daughter journal on the same journaling software, split by passwords? What a legacy that would be for future generations!!! And what therapy for my daughters!

Thanks. I have to say the software is so user-friendly and easy.

LifeJournal is a wonderful product. I looked for journaling software for several years, and none of the others I saw even came close to LJ2. Thanks for creating a truly great journal system!

...The whole program has helped me to focus my inner self. It has been a stressful year on my job and LifeJournal has helped a great deal in just the short time I have been using it.
-- Pat Keenan

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I absolutely love this journaling software. I have been journaling for over 35 years and your program is stupendous! As a psychotherapist, I frequently recommend it to my patients. It has the potential to stimulate so much growth and grounding upon the discovery of their true selves.
