Journaling with Intention

… because there’s so much more to journaling than stream of consciousness writing.

Journal with intention for connection – to your Self, to your family. I’ll show you how.

Let me share my passion with you!

Kathi Ostrom Gowsell, certified journal writing instructor and legacy facilitator, founded Writing Life Matters in September 2015 to share her knowledge of journal writing and all its potential.

“I believe –

  • your trusted journal and favourite pen are the best tools for transitioning through life; 
  • and writing is an important and effective means to connect family.”


Writing Life Matters’ mission is to develop workshops based on proven journal writing tools and legacy writing methods to help you get the most from your journal writing practise.

Kathi’s most current course, Journal Your Legacy, is designed to help you create a significant written record of who you are – your values, wisdom and history – as a precious gift for your loved ones.

Kathi has been certified by Kathleen Adams of the Center of Journal Therapy since 2003 and recently trained as a Legacy Facilitator with Rachael Freed of Life Legacies.
