Byron's Games - Family Journal Review



Disclosure: I received this product free through the Homeschool Review Crew
We recently had the opportunity to review The Family Journal from Byron's Games.  Such a great concept to encourage family focus to work together as a team.



We have all heard the phrase, "There's no 'I' in team".  Byron's Games has released The Family Journal that allows families to really learn how to work together to both set and reach family goals together.

Using The Family Journal, families can list out yearly goals, plan shorter monthly goals that will allow them to help to reach their long term goals.  Families can discuss both what they want to accomplish with help and support from everyone in the family, but also what they want to accomplish as a family.  The Family Journal helps them to keep all these goals and the steps they need to accomplish them as a team.

The Family Journal does an excellent job in helping families by give them information on how to write a family mission statement that shows your family's values and beliefs.  By developing S.M.A.R.T. goals as a family, everyone can be more successful in what they want to accomplish for their own personal goals or even goals they want to reach as a family.


I really liked how it encouraged us to make lists of what the family's needs really are.  This is something that only you as a family can list.  Everyone's needs are different, even inside of a family living under the same roof.  Everyone will see different obstacles and how they will make it harder to reach your goals.  By working together to make those lists, it helps to encourage the whole group to successfully reach the goals.  There is encouragement included inside of The Family Journal to keep the goals and their time frame realistic.   

Have you ever thought about the power of working together as a family.  There is definitely strength in numbers.  More brains working together to get toward a goal of a long family vacation, will make reaching that dream more attainable.

But The Family Journal can also help encourage each individual in the family to reach their goals.  Yes, even though Lydia might want to become better at her 3-point riding technique, we can work together as a family to encourage her to practice reaching that goal.  What about a reading goal?  Do you want to finish a book a week?  Maybe the family could help with some of your daily chores to reach that goal.  Maybe even increased Bible study?

The monthly goals can be broken down into smaller weekly goals.  It makes everything just a bit more attainable, and not feel so overwhelming.  The Family Journal encourages weekly meetings that include some type of connection activity for your family to do together that really opens up communication.  This encourages that support from the rest of your family in what you were able to accomplish toward that goal.

All of this information and lists have been put together in a weekly activity of The Family Journal.  You can keep track for each other so easily.  There is help for you to even create your own family mission statement.  This is much harder than you think it would be.  The Family Journal  is a well-made hardcover book that will stand up to the daily/weekly use that it was intended for.  Even during busy times, you can discuss the material during dinner, in the car, or even at bedtime together.

Our Family Mission statement: 

We as the Kuehners' Will Work to Love Jehovah, Jesus, Each Other, and Others.  We will try new Adventures, Be Curious and Open to Learn New Things, Be Respectful and Act With Kindness, Nurture Friendships, Hate What Jehovah Hates, and Always Care About Others.

Included also are reviews of what you were able to accomplish as a family.  you can track any progress or what you may be struggling with.  You can track how you can make improvements, even during times of struggles.

We have really enjoyed our start with The Family Journal .  We look forward to continuing to work to reach goals that we set for ourselves and as a family.  This has been a hard year to reach out.  As we all start crawling out of our "pods", The Family Journal can keep you on track.
