Welcome to jointjournal!

My name is Susan Ekhoff and I’m honored to oversee this blog.

My husband Richard and I have seven children ranging in age from the late 20’s to mid-teens – each so different it is a wonder they are siblings. Teaching my children at home has been a twenty-year plus investment and I wouldn’t trade a day of it for anything. I also teach a writing class at small Christian school in Tulsa. Students inspire me.

Above all else I love Jesus and I am passionate about journaling my journey with Him. Along the way I love encouraging others know the Lord more intimately through writing.

This blog provides a peek at the whys and hows of journaling and is stocked with edifying entries from the journals of my friends and students. Our posts relate to being in relationship with Jesus, each other and ourselves. It is our joy to testify to the Holy Spirit’s activity in our lives.

We pray that these wisdom nuggets will stir you to take up pen and record your own adventure with God.

  1. Susan, I have been trying to get hold of you. My Name is Palesa a female living in South Africa and I am a big fan of yours. I read your Plan that was sent to You Version called Deeper. I would like to know if you have any other plans. Deeper touched me in a way I cannot explain and brings me deeper with God every time I read it. Is there some more plans like it?

    Yours in Christ



    1. My dear sister, Palesa,
      Thank you for reading my plan! I’m so honored that you would reach out to me. In answer to your question, I have one other plan in YouVersion called “Conversations with God” on the topic of the Lord’s voice. I have just released “The Exchange, An Invitation from Jesus.” It is a short salvation plan for seekers or an evangelism tool for Christians. I will launch a new plan called “Sabbath, Living from Rest” in the next few weeks. I plan to publish many more Bible plans on various topics this year! I can see from your note that you have a deep love for the Lord and are longing for more as I am. I know He adores this about you and will ever be providing more intimacy as He draws you to His heart. Sending a hug to you. May you be blessed. Susan
