Being “mortal” means every one of us has an expiration date. Our flesh is transient, fragile, passing. Death is inescapable and imminent – for me, for you, for those you love. For every one of us, 100% of the time. This is the situation we find ourselves in. Resistance is ultimately futile, so the answer lies in acceptance and resignation. And therein awaits peace.
“I Will Die” is a stunningly unique creative journal filled with profound (and sometimes playful) creative writing and artistic prompts designed to help you examine the reality and mystery that surrounds death… and how it affects the way you live, love, and will some day die.
When we look our own mortality in the face and come to terms with our deepest fears, expectations and emotions, life becomes all the more precious and filled with meaning and beauty.
Let the journey begin…

Quotes from Amazon.com reviews:
- I wasn’t sure what to expect by this title, but I really like it. I found myself examining thoughts and emotions about my death and how I feel about the loss of others. It wasn’t sad at all; it was more life affirming than anything. Then my daughters picked it up (ages 8,9 and 11) and now I can’t get it back! They are enjoying the prompts and discussing thoughts on death,….I did not think I’d see that! So now they want copies of their own. Thank you, Jessica, for an unexpected delight!
- I haven’t written in the journal yet, but reading through it I know it is going to be something I enjoy. It seems a little morbid, but death is something that happens to all of us, why not think deeply on it? Just opening the book and reading the first few pages made me stop and really think about how I’d answer. I’m looking forward to journaling my way through ‘death’ 🙂
- The first “journal” type book that has made me stop and think and write ‘real’ responses. This gets into some tender territory that you usually don’t think about, and really makes you stop and consider what’s really underneath your fears of dying. There’s also a nice blend of humor here and there which helps lighten things up. Love it!
