Meet our new products!


Dear Friends,

Just seven months ago, I sent The Dear Mom Journal by Narrative Forth into the world for pre-orders. I knew I had a great product centered around a meaningful tradition that our family has enjoyed for years. What I didn't expect is just how much you'd love it too, and how faithfully you'd come alongside me and this little dream of mine. So, thanks to you, we're growing! And I'm just over the moon to share our newest products with you.

These new goodies will go on sale Tuesday, January 26 at 8am MT, right here in the online shop. I'm introducing them to you today, in hopes you'll take some time to learn about the heart behind them. And, make sure you're on our email list so we can send you a reminder when sales open.


Meet the Dear Love Journal
The is the OG, the original, the tradition that started it all. If you've been following along with the Narrative Forth story, you know that our Brown Family Journals started back in 2013. Back then it was just us - Scott and Sara - and I (Sara) dreamed up what would become the Narrative Forth concept and handmade our very first Journal because one didn't exist on the market. I gifted this Journal to Scott for our first wedding anniversary. Almost nine years later, our Journal now documents trips we've taken, concerts we've enjoyed, a cross-country move, the births of our children, difficult times and so many precious milestones in between. 

I hope you, too, can imagine years of your love story bound together in one beautiful place.

The Dear Love Journal features the similar format you already love with the Dear Mom Journal - a classic cover with simple stamping, an Entry Log and 16 pages of Entry Inspiration sorted into 11 categories including Our Anniversaries, Our Milestones and Just Because. This one's a little different because the 100 flat-lay, open-ended Entry Spreads are dot-lined instead of blank, giving you the flexibility to write letters or paste in photos.

Ready to know what the covers look like?! The Dear Love Journal is going to be available in Warm Grey, Classic Oat and (eek!) the most gorgeous Vegan Leather.

Meet the Dear Dad Journal
Before I even opened pre-orders for the Dear Mom Journal, you guys were asking about this one. So here it is! The Dear Dad Journal. Your beloved tradition for Mom, this time for the best guy in your life.

The Dear Dad Journal features a classic cover with white foil stamping, an Entry Log and 16 pages of Entry Inspiration sorted into 11 categories including Birthday, Father's Day, Valentine's Day and Just Because. Like the Dear Mom Journal, the Dear Dad Entry Spreads include a small dedication section and are otherwise blank, giving your child total flexibility to crate a drawing, doodle or letter to dad.

Dear Dad Journals will be initially released in Warm Grey and Midnight. (Scott's pick is Midnight, and I can't said I blame him. It is super dark, almost black, with a yummy blue/green undertone.)
