In a way like no other my pen is mightier than any sword!

As a writer, I’m a warrior who proudly wears her heart on her sleeve. I have a vision to share my passion for the process of Journal Writing to the portion of the world I can reach that has a longing for authenticity and a self-directed life! Compassion and Love are my politics and my religion.

I’m a mother, business owner, fearless writer, Certified Instructor of Journal To The Self ™ and a Licensed Facilitator of The Desire Map ™ Workshops – all while living in the beautiful Napa Valley, California. I began journaling at a very young age, and have spent over 30 years journaling through my own life’s transitions, travels, creative challenges and struggles. I have gone on to train in other’s methods as well as developing many of my own new methods of this practice in order to offer others the ability to strengthen their own life-tool of journaling.

I believe with all that I am, that the benefits of the practice of journaling are enormous, and I’ve spent the past decade studying these benefits along with the benefits of gratitude, compassion, transparency, and self-acceptance. Yes indeed – I fully embrace the human condition – you matter to me! So let’s do this!

Born in the freezing state of Wyoming, USA, I thank the day that my mom brought me to the warm, sunny Heaven of Northern California. I currently teach WriteOn! Journaling Workshops in both Napa and Santa Cruz, California, where I enjoy my work as well as life-long friendships amidst gorgeous back drops of sunshine, salty air, sandy beaches and vineyards mixed with mustard flowers.

Each day of mine begins with a cup of coffee, a good read, a chunk of time to write and meditate, guided by my heart’s core desires.

In my free time, I’m an avid gardener and cycler and can often be found with my nose in a book. I dream of true world peace, knowing I make a contribution toward the collective effort.

YES - I believe in amazing possibilities and in miracles….Here are three reasons why: I live with my three amazing and loving children nearby, who are the loves of my life - oh, and my Papillion, Oliver. (Don’t hesitate to email and ask for a picture, cuz he is just that cute!)

Blessed Be!


Last year when I took your workshop on Journaling Sheri, I had heard that Journaling could help free up your mind of trouble spots and to help you work through your personal issues.For me, I had hit a block in my professional life. The job that I once loved and looked forward to doing everyday had become a chore. I was anxious and unhappy.The moment I entered your workshop, I knew I was in the right place. The atmosphere was calm and inviting. You made me feel at ease. Although there were about ten of us in this room I appreciated that no one knew why the other was there. The first class flew by and in remaining weeks of classes, I enjoyed that we had homework and reading assignments to take home and practice. The entire experience was tremendously helpful. Sheri, you have a gift and a calling. What struck me the most is that you have great insight into the human condition and you used that to help me with your unique Journaling and writing methods and abiliiesy.

Today I am running my own company and I have a new perspective on life. I’m a believer in journaling and you, Miss Sheri Kellogg!!

Thank you!

After a good length of time, riddled with cynicism toward the idea of Journal Writing being beneficial, I came around..after many conversations and coaching with Sheri. On my own, I finally began journaling and after sitting and writing down my thoughts, I realized how much it helps me to do so. I wrote Sheri and told her, 'I really want to encourage you to continue to develop this. I am experiencing the good it does for me and I am convinced that many others could benefit from it. I think you have something good here, develop it!' Thank you for opening me up to this practice and oh so useful life tool!

When Sheri told me she was going online with her Journal Writing workshops, I was pleased, but hardly surprised. After all, she has been serving as an unofficial, and invaluable, “journaling mentor” to me for years now.

I’m pleased for Sheri, for being able to find what truly is a calling for her, but even more happy for the people she will be able to help with her wisdom, her patient capacity to listen and share her vast awareness of the therapeutic power of Journal Writing, and her innate ability to help people not just examine their own capacity for growth, but to give a fresh, honest look to ideas, possibilities and techniques they wouldn’t otherwise have been open to exploring. Sheri’s nonjudgment, open mind and trustworthiness have always been there for me. I’m glad to hear those qualities will be there for others, as well.

I have known Sheri Kellogg for 47 years. She is my sister and my best friend. I know her to be the most compassionate, understanding, intelligent and spiritual person I know. I have had quite a few struggles in my life. I lost my 12 year old son tragically 4 years ago.

She encouraged me to start a journal for the sole purpose of writing my happy memories of my Son. It has been extremely helpful to me. I am always amazed at how spiritually open she is and willing to embrace life. She is courageous and I shining example to me to go forward and follow my dreams. One of my dreams was to open a sober living house. I wanted to help other people. My sister taught me the best way to get out of your own head and heal is to help other people. She made my dream come true! I now have a sober living house and I have a purpose. Which is extremely fulfilling for me.

You ROCK sis!!

Sheri, I just had to email you and tell you what happened! The relationship I was in for three years, that ended? Well, it 're-surfaced' recently and I contemplated. BUT, I have to tell you what happened! I went back through my journal writing that you encouraged me to practice. I saw patterns. I wrote down a list of all of the 'disgruntling' parts of the relationship that showed up in these patterns. I presented them to him and asked him, where he was on these issues today, now two years later. He was in EXACTLY the same place as when we ended things!! By writing in my Journal how the relationship experience was for me, I was able to see the patterns and use my own inate intution to know this was still not a place I wanted to go back to. It was like having my mother offer me advice, only it was from within my own intuition! WOW!! this is just amazing to me and I am a 'life-timer', haha! Thank you again for introducing me to Journal writing!
