Hi! We’re Allen & Lisa, Co-founders of Bound to Journal.

Isn’t it interesting that you can give guidance to others, but when it comes to your own issues, without the right tools, even simple decisions can feel difficult?  Our careers were based on helping others and teaching them decision-making skills, but when it came to our own lives, we were too close to issues to see the numerous options out there for us. 

We met after working through some pretty difficult work situations and failed marriages. Individually, we were on a good path, but together we navigated an even more ambitious goal toward healing and growing.  


Bound to Journal emerged as we shared discoveries we’d made staying positive while stumbling toward change.

Our course designs guide you through a process of reaching clarity, deeper creativity, and a better understanding of yourself while working toward your goals.

Our mission is to support wellness through journaling and essential oils.
