UnLeash Your Story

A Journal Writer’s Guidebook

I share how journaling saved my life when I was sixteen years old, the benefits, my interpretation of what journaling is and simple instructions to make your own journals. Gain inspiration from the 365 journal prompts to unleash your story and cultivate a deeper connection with ‘self’. This heart-centered book is intended to help unlock expressions of emotion that are often hard to put into words, reminisce on days gone by, put dreams and goals onto paper and to open the gateway for messages from the heart to be seen on paper.

Paperback Book BONUS – 30-days of journal pages to encourage the action of journaling.

A Personal Note From The Author

C.K. Kochis

UnLeash Your Story serves as a guide to inspire the action of journaling. Writing can encourage the intimate conversation that connects our mind with our heart and soul. Our words have power. Our stories matter. 

I’m a writer; it’s what I do.
I share personal stories of transformation; it’s how I heal.


“I am a firm believer that writing is the most powerful tool in our toolbox for creating our best life. This book is living proof of that. With so many writing prompts and ideas, no one can say, “But what would I write about?” This book helps you to get to know yourself like a best friend. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for an introduction to their authentic selves.” -Barb Parcells, Author

At Sunrise

A Grieving Momma’s Journey to Living Life In Motion

In the summer of 2017, I sold my home of twenty-six years, disconnected from all that was familiar and set out on a Soul’s Journey.  The intent was to heal from the death of my oldest son. At the state parks along the back roads and highways to and from New Mexico, I write about my adventures in a blog series titled The Adventure Begins. This book goes beyond the weekly posts to tell the my story of loneliness, self-loathing, courage, bizarre encounters and discovering Self-love along the way.

The Edge of Awareness

A journey from barely existing to living life in motion.

Let face it, I put everyone else’s needs in front of my own. I soaked up the descriptions and labels used to describe me as if they were my own. Life became chaotic and emotionally overwhelming. The doldrums of relentless cycles of daily routines both bored and challenged me. 

It took the healing quest from my oldest son’s death for me to get past the “someday” statement to actively participate in a life in motion. Someday would happen when I had enough money, someone thought I was adorable, was done with the chores, had a successful business, wasn’t so stressed, had more confidence and so forth. 

In my own exploration of the elements for a healthier life, I reached the pivotal point where there is a powerful awareness on the edge of each trauma. I am no longer interested in asking others for what I should do next. I am seeking to fall in love with myself, respect the woman I am, and gain access to uncensored answers from within – to hear my divine voice.

“On the edge of awareness, something miraculous happens. Change.” -C.K. Kochis
