An Interview with Art Mag

As modern folks, we get pretty caught up in the busy of our lives.

Even our kids are busier than they’ve ever been. Jennifer M. Snyder, a modern woman of many gifts, observes that “self-care goes out the window first,” when life gets crazy. “If the ship goes down, we can’t help anyone,” and thus begins the first of many clever maritime metaphors.

The HMS Log Book is a beautiful specimen of a journal. The cover is velvety feeling, and for those of us who still prefer a perfect-bound book to the cold indifference of a tablet, this is important. This journal presents an easy-to-use forum to efficiently log each day, much in the way that ship captains of yesteryear would catalog the activities of each day at sea and at port, to be intimately acquainted with their ship inside and out.

Use this handsome journal to get to know your own ‘Her Majesty’s Ship.’ The journal is divided in two parts per year, to keep the size manageable—so you can easily tote it far and wide. Purchase 2016 Part One now to get started immediately or Part Two to start journaling on July 1.

“To be fully empowered in all areas of our lives, to create more health, love, harmony, and laughter, the Log Book is a must have tool for transformation. What I adore most, and what makes this journal stand out, is the big picture perspective it is teaching us,” says Elli Richter, a life coach and fitness guru in Charleston.

We are charting our own journey with the HMS Log Book, and this year in particular is very special as your faithful editor prepares for her wedding. Snyder remarks that women (and men!) of all stripes use it for different reasons—one expectant mother plans to document it all and share it with her daughter years down the road. Whatever motivates you to do it, we believe that this tool will help you take a moment each day to focus on yourself and work on that very important relationship— knowing and caring for yourself.

HMS Log Book by Jennifer M. Snyder

Praise for HMS Log Book

Thankful to have discovered this book!
2017 Part 1 will be my 3rd logbook, and I honestly don’t know how I ever made it without this journal! I have used this book as a tool to enrich my spiritual life, remain focused at work, set my personal goals for the future, and evaluate my past to realize where I am on my journey. I fill each page to the brim with notes, feelings, and daily activities, and I also use it as a tool to grade and evaluate the quality of my energy so that I can better focus on the specific areas of my life that need improvement. I was in a tragic car accident as a child that caused damage to my temporal lobes (severely affecting my memory) and filling out the pages in this book has been a blessing because it has given me my life back. I can look back on all of the days that otherwise would have been lost and forgotten – and that to me is priceless. I strongly recommend this book to any woman who is searching for that “something” ..because this book will help you discover it. Give it a try and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I’m loving the HMS Log Book – it’s so helpful to have a daily invitation to pause and reflect on my intention, my habits, and my emotional state (and in a way that’s simple and do-able, and doesn’t take too much time, which means I’ll actually do it!). I see how, by tracking my daily rhythms and routines, I’ll be better able to get a big-picture perspective on what’s working and what’s not working in my life – seeing how my choices and intentions each day affect the results I’m trying to create. Also loving the inspiring quotes for each day, and the way that astrological info is woven in and made totally accessible and easy to work with.

Cannot live without! Best daily planner and devotional for intention setting out there.
This book has helped me see clearly the decisions I am making for my mind body and spirit everyday. It allows me to reconcile what I am doing with my time versus what I WANT to be doing. It has seriously amplified my awareness. I am so looking forward to 2017 and establishing regular meditation and gratitude as well as following the moon cycles where I only practiced this haphazardly! We are so lucky that the author has taken such care and attention in mapping out these beautiful pages for us to create our days. The illustrations are stunning and the quotes are carefully thought out. I only wish I had found this sooner!

The HMS Log Book is fantastic!!! It is making me more aware of my habits, good and not so good, and my daily intentions. I love the introduction and the explanation about the book as well. Really great work Jen! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
