Life is beautiful.

Don't miss it.

Grab your journal and come discover a soulful approach to managing your time and creating your Beautiful Life...

Welcome to Joybook —

your supportive online community and learning space.

We want to help you make the most of your precious time on earth.

Our motto is, "Life is beautiful. Don't miss it."

And yes, we believe it's beautiful as it is right now. That we just need to look in order to see it.

(And we believe that we are beautiful too — in all our gorgeous, messy, vulnerable, human imperfection.)

But we also believe in growing and improving. That we can love ourselves and our lives as they are, while still reaching for something more.

And we believe that a healthy, wise, and caring relationship with yourself is the foundation for a good life.

Joybook is here for you...

We help you answer three important questions...

  • Who am I, and what matters most to me?
  • How can I make progress on my true priorities?
  • How can I enjoy and live my life more fully?

From guided journaling, to soulful learning experiences, to meaningful conversations in a supportive and accepting community — Joybook is here for you.

We're here to support you with seeing life's beauty and remembering to stop and enjoy it...

With recognizing and cherishing your own inherent beauty and worthiness too...

With getting clear on what you want and on how to reach for it...

And, to make all that possible, we're here to help you listen to your own soul and nurture your relationship with yourself — which is the foundation for a good life.

Speaking both as a participant and someone with years of experience in training and facilitation, Elaine is phenomenal. Absolutely phenomenal. She is generous, wise and put simply, knows her stuff.

Joybook content summary: monthly themes, journaling, learning, coaching & co-working

Monthly Themes

Each month we focus our learning and journaling around a distinct theme — and we explore a different aspect of that theme each week.

This focused approach helps you make more meaningful progress in each area of your life.

At the beginning of each month, you'll get an email introducing the theme and outlining upcoming deep-dive offerings related to that theme.

Then most weeks you'll also get a "quick things" email highlighting a different aspect of the theme. Inside, you'll find a resource that takes 10 minutes or less — a short video, a journaling prompt, a simple practice, etc.

Each month you'll get access to a new, in-depth learning resource related to the monthly theme.

The weekly emails will also highlight existing resources for you — often short videos for quick ways to learn the essentials.

Learning opportunities come in a few different formats inside the Joybook community...

Some months we gather for a 1.5- to 2-hour live workshop. You'll see a presentation on skills or strategies related to the monthly theme, and you'll be guided in some journaling to help you apply the teachings.

Other months, you'll get a new, in-depth, self-paced online course. You can do the whole course or just watch the lessons that speak to your needs.

And occasionally we gather for a more casual chat or Q&A about the monthly theme.

Whatever the format or topic, all of the recordings can be found inside a searchable library on the site.

You'll also find curated resources — videos, books & articles, recommended tools, etc. — inside our community forums.

Each month we offer a facilitated journaling series to help you go deep with the theme.

You'll also get short prompts via email for quickly applying the topic in your life.

Saturday is deep dive journaling day in the Joybook community. Three to four times a month, we gather for a 1.5-hour facilitated journaling experience. Just drop in as your schedule permits. 

These sessions offer a chance to go beyond learning and to do some deeper introspection related to the monthly theme. Each includes:

  • a short reading, teaching, or meditation
  • a series of 2-3 journaling prompts which build on each other to help you go deeper
  • a debrief conversation about our experiences with the writes (sharing is optional)

Short journaling prompts also arrive in your email inbox from time to time, in case you need quicker ways to engage with the topic.

And all of the Joybook journaling resources are also archived in a searchable library on the site, so you can view any live sessions you missed, revisit the collection of quick prompts for any theme, or find instructions on various journaling techniques or go-to journaling prompts.

Coaching & Support

Get support with whatever you're working on in your life, regardless of the month's theme.

Come for our monthly group coaching call. Or join us for co-working on Mondays.

Coaching and group support are an informal part of much of Joybook. Whether through learning or journaling opportunities, we help you get perspective on your life, discover useful ideas and resources, and tap into your inner wisdom through powerful questions.

But we have two other, more formal opportunities for this kind of support…

Once a month, we gather together via Zoom for a group coaching call. We use our journals to reflect big-picture on our current lives — both inner and outer. We celebrate what's going well, name the things we're learning in life, and get support with the challenges, opportunities, and stuck places.

Joybook members who choose to can take turns getting coached about what came up in their journaling. But everyone benefits from the vicarious learning that happens when we hear others wrestling with the kinds of human situations we all face in our lives.

Once a week, we have a more "in the weeds" way to get support. Join us for "Make Progress Monday," where we work on our current priorities (personal or professional) in one-hour time blocks, with short check-in breaks in between — for coaching, accountability, or simply companionship.

Joybook came to me at the perfect time, and I am so thankful for this space to be with others while I reflect and grow. Elaine, you are creating ripples!

Come on in! Life is beautiful inside Joybook...

You're going to love this community of kindred spirits. And you're going to love the version of YOU that you connect with here too!

I came to Joybook hoping to rediscover a sense of purpose in life, but I got something more.  Joybook has reconnected me with my voice, my Wise Self, that inner place that guides me no matter where life might be taking me. Journaling with Elaine has been transformative.

Who's in our community?

We're big-hearted folks who care deeply about the world and the people in it.

We're seekers, hungry for insight and meaning, learning and growth.

We're people of many different life stages and circumstances.

And we're eager to welcome you!

Wow!!! I am so grateful to have found Elaine and Joybook! With no exaggeration, it has kept me sane during the Covid pandemic. The check-ins and journaling. Members who share Elaine’s values of welcome, inclusiveness, introspection, and mutual support. Thank goodness, my Higher Power gave me this gift of Joybook to walk through these isolating times.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don't journal. Will I like this?

We use journaling a lot on Joybook. For example, it's integrated into most of the courses and coaching. But it might actually be different from what you think of as journaling. If you can make a list of thoughts as they come into your mind (which I know you can!), you can do this. And you'll probably find you really enjoy it! 

This is super low-pressure writing, with prompts and instructions to make it easy. You don't need to be a "good writer" or say anything poetic or profound in order to get a lot out of it.

Do I need to be tech savvy to use it?

Nope! There might be a little bit of learning for you initially, but the website is pretty straightforward and easy to understand. And the Zoom app, which we use for our live events, has become as popular as it has because it's so easy to use.

Just to make sure you have no trouble, though, I've created some short tutorials to demonstrate the different things you might want to do on the site and in our live Zoom calls. And if you ever run into trouble, I'm here to help!

I'm not in the United States. Can I still join?

Absolutely! There might be a few informal live calls that are scheduled at times that aren't optimal for you. But I try to schedule the big, formal things at times that will be accessible for most Joybook members.

And even if those times don't work out for you, the coaching calls, workshops, and facilitated journaling experiences are all recorded and posted on the site so you can access them whenever works best for you.

I'm afraid I'll be too busy to use it.

You know what? I'd actually be surprised if you used everything that's available to you on Joybook! Because there's a lot inside the site, and it's growing all the time. You're not expected to use it all. There's a range of options because our members have a range of interests, needs, and preferences.

So just find what speaks to you, and don't worry about the rest. If you're getting value from your Joybook membership — even if it's just from one feature — then you're using it right!

But if what you're really worried about is making time for yourself or following through on your commitments to yourself, well then, you're in the right place. I've intentionally built in strategies and supports to help you with that.

If you try it out, though, and do in fact find you're not using it enough to make it worth your while, then you can easily cancel. If it's within the first 30 days, you may also request a refund.

How much contact will I have with Elaine?

Lots! I'm on live Zoom calls most weeks, leading journaling, workshops, group coaching calls, or other conversations. When you see me face-to-face, it will almost always be in group settings. But I'm also in the community forums, and you can use that resource to get one-on-one support from me. Simply post a question or issue in the forums, and I'll reply with personalized feedback for you.

Will I have access to everything right away?

Some sites "drip" their content, releasing a little at a time. Or they require an "upgrade" to access certain features. That's not the way we work around here.

On Joybook, none of the existing resources will held back from you. Immediately upon joining, you'll have access to the entire library of courses, journaling prompts, and coaching recordings — plus all the resource pages in the forums.

Many of our events are live, though, so of course you will have to wait for those! But once they are held, the recordings will be added to the site where you'll be able to access them at any time.

What happens if I decide to cancel?

It's easy to do from your account page in just a couple clicks. You can cancel at any time and will continue to have access through the end of your payment period.

After that time, you will lose access to all the resources on the site and in the community. (Most of the prompts and courses are not downloadable; they live on the site and require an active membership to access them.)

If you decide to rejoin at a later date, we'd be delighted to have you back! Be aware, however, that the price may go up — whereas your membership rate is locked in and will not change while you are an active member.

What's your refund policy?

I offer a 30-day money back guarantee — no questions asked. After you join, if for any reason you decide that Joybook is not for you, just let me know within the first 30 days, and I'll send you a prompt refund. But truthfully, my dear, I think you're going to love it here! 

Can I share my membership with a friend?

Sorry, no. You need your own individual account and identity in order to have a good experience here (e.g., tracking your progress, saving favorites, getting coached).

But, just as importantly, we're committed to creating authentic community on Joybook, and that's not possible if everyone's not showing up as themselves. (See our expectations for Joybook members.)

Plus we expect everyone to pay their share for these resources and the time that goes into creating them. Fair's fair, right? I've priced it to be well within reach for most people.

That said, if cost is a barrier for you, please get in touch. Thanks to a generous member, we do have some limited funds available for partial scholarships.

I have a question that's not answered here.

No problem! I'd be happy to answer any other questions you might have. Just click here to get in touch, or email me at

Elaine, you and Joybook have turned my life around, and now I'm off and running. "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."
