Get our Gratitude Journal for $8.50!

Last year, we launched our Choose Gratitude Journals and they ended up being a crazy, smashing success. So smashing, in fact, that we had all sorts of problems with shipping and fulfillment and our online store.

You all know how to show up for a sale, that’s for sure!

We ended up selling out of what we had felt like was a huge order within just a short time period and then they were out of stock for a long, long time.

Ever since last November, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to investigate how to bring you products and product sales and how to be able to fulfill thousands of orders in a week — at the level of excellence that we want to offer to you.

It’s taken months of work and investigation and trial and error, but we are so excited that we now have a grown-up online store, a real warehouse space, and a shipping manager. How cool is that??

Which means that we’re able to offer you much better customer service and hopefully fix 99% of the problems caused with our shopping cart software last time we did a sale.

Psst! The coupon code NOVLOVE also works on our Choose Love Journals — knocking the price down to just $8.50 each for those, too. The Choose Love Journals were specifically designed to encourage and bless mothers to be intentionally about choosing love in their every day life.

A few things to note:

  • Shipping should be about $4-ish per book ordered for the first 1 to 2 books. Shipping is calculated based upon where you live and the actual weight of the products. I know this is high, but we’ve worked very hard to get the best actual shipping prices we possibly can and still offer quality shipping service (we’ve chosen not to offer media mail or parcel post because both are very unreliable and often take weeks to arrive).
  • If you’re going to order two journals only, it’s actually a better deal on shipping to place two separate orders of one journal each.
  • The good news is that if you want to order the journals as gifts, if you order 4-6+ journals, shipping goes down significantly. These make great gifts for so many different people on your list so consider ordering multiple copies to get a better deal — and to be able to have great and meaningful gifts to give this Christmas!

  • Sharleen says:

    How come the shipping fee is $6 for me?

    • Are you in a different country or try to order multiple copies? If not, then that doesn’t sound right. Email and our shipping folks will help you out!

      • Dawn says:

        For me, it is coming up as $6 to ship 1 book and $8.83 to ship 2 books to Illinois.

        • JoyG says:

          Dawn – one trick we’ve found is if you want to order two books, order them separately. That way, the packages are lighter and can go first class instead of priority, making them less expensive. I hope this helps! 🙂

          • Dawn says:

            Thanks Joy! That must be a new change. The first class price was showing up as $6.00 for one journal for me both times I checked yesterday (morning and evening). Now I see it is $3.78 for shipping one journal.

      • B. Winblad says:

        Same as Dawn stated for me in Indiana. That seems like so much for shipping of 1 book. You should offer media shipping for a cheaper rate. With the current discount code being offered, shipping of just 1 book isn’t much less than the price of the actual book.

        • Kimberly says:

          That’s what I was going to ask for, too…started to order one last night, but S&H is nearly half the cost of the book!

        • I’m not sure what’s up… I’m texting with our shipping folks tonight and asking them to come on here to check on this. I’m so sorry!

        • JoyG says:

          Hi! This is Joy from Crystal’s team. While media rate is less expensive, we made a choice not to offer it. It’s just not super reliable and can take 2-3 weeks for the order to arrive. Thank you for understanding!

      • Sharleen says:

        Im from new york. I just to order one book. Thanks

    • Joy says:

      Sharleen – This is Joy from Crystal’s team. So sorry for the trouble! We had changed a setting to reflect an increase in shipping prices, but I’ve now reduced it down to yesterday’s levels. For one book, it should now be around $4. If you have any questions, I’m happy to help. Just email us at Thank you for your patience! This is a new venture for us with physical product and there are a few learning curves. 🙂

  • Charlene says:

    Ordered for myself and two for friends. Thanks

  • Donna Dunbar says:

    I am from Iowa and shipping is $6.00 for one book. Seems high.

  • amy says:

    If you have amazon prime it is 10.94 for Choose Love and 11.66 for Choose Gratitude with free shipping. I’ll be ordering from Amazon.

  • Amanda says:

    I am in Charleston, Sc and the shipping is $6.00 for me as well. Is this correct?

  • Michelle says:

    Will you be running a sale on your t-shirt line soon? I’d like to buy some for Christmas gifts. Also could you offer them in long sleeves?

  • karen b says:

    I ordered 6 books 2 of the Gratitude ones & 4 of the Love ones. I was really disappointed in my shipping total being almost $20, this is way more than I would ever pay for anything unless needed the next day. really really glad Igot the discount otherwise these books would belike $15 a piece which is crazy when wanting a nice gift & not spending a bunch. (a bunch for me is anything over $10,, yep this just shot my budget all to pieces)

  • Christine says:

    What is benefit to using this book vs. a spiral notebook for 25 cents?

    • It’s whatever works best for you! I LOVE this book because it’s specifically set up as a gratitude journal — a line a day for every day of the year. And it’s much higher quality/durable than a spiral notebook. Plus, the quotes and encouragement sprinkled throughout are full of inspiration. However, if Dollar Store Notebook works for you then go for it! 🙂

  • Dianna says:

    Are you getting anymore bracelets in? I want to wait and buy the combo for me from my husband for Christmas. We have learned to just buy our own gift and say it is from the other. Lol. If not, will go with just the book. Plus going to get the gratitude one for my daughter. She is a teen and heading into hs. It will be a rough four years and I want her to remember what makes her special and what blessings she has. Plus she loves when you put out your free books list posts.

  • Tamara says:

    Instead of offering the NOVLOVE code sell the journals for $10 each, including shipping. We all love free shipping!

    • I wish we could but with all of the costs involved with shipping/overhead/supplies/paying to run the store/paying for Paypal/credit card fees/paying for the costs of the journals/paying our contractors, etc. we wouldn’t even be breaking even to do that — we’d be losing money on every order. 🙁

      However, we are working on a possible deal for Black Friday for bulk orders that might include shipping… we’re running numbers right now to see what the best deal is we could possibly offer on bulk orders without losing money.

  • Amber says:

    I just wanted to thank you for the email you sent out about choosing love. I’ve been thinking about this so much this week and I loved the line from that email that says, “There is so much suffering and heartache around us. Sometimes it feels so heavy that choosing joy is hard.”

    I hear people saying, “Happiness is a choice,” all the time, but sometimes it can be hard. Even if I’m not in a joyous moment though, I can still be loving. Even if I’m burdened by my struggles, I can always choose love despite them.

    Thank you for being real about this. Have a great weekend!

  • Kristine says:

    Just to post a positive note. For 5 journals the shipping to me is only $7.73, so with the code my total is only $50.23. On Amazon even with free shipping the total was $58.30. I think that is completely reasonable. I’m still deciding if this is what I want to get for my sisters, but it’s basically $10 shipped which I think is a great price. Thank you for all that you do Crystal (and team)!

  • Jill says:

    I just ordered a Choose Love journal (thanks for the coupon code) and saw you had bracelets too! Love them…but so sad they’re sold out! Will you be getting more in soon?

  • Donna Dunbar says:

    I just ordered and the shipping was lower than yesterday. I am super excited to receive this- ordered Chose Love. My 19 year old daughter, who is an only child, eloped with her boyfriend after knowing him for 6 weeks. We were extremely close, and now our relationship has changed. Praying and focusing positive.

  • Stephanie says:

    Hi – I was trying to click on the link to view the pictures of what’s inside the Choose Love book but it’s not working. Is there somewhere else I can view before I buy for myself and a couple friends? 🙂


  • Christy du Mee says:

    I just ordered 4 Choose Love and 4 Choose Gratitude journals and had a total of less than $80, including shipping. Makes me happy because these will make such special Christmas gifts for less than $10 each! Thanks!

  • Jennifer says:

    Hi Crystal, this may be just a glitch on my end but when I tried the link to see more images of the inside of the Choose Love journal it didn’t work. Just thought I would let you know! I’m looking forward to more bracelets or tshirts too. 🙂 Keep up the good work with encouraging us!
