Cathy Hanlin and Kayleigh Hanlin are a mother/daughter team that aims to address the issues that face children today. They believe there are many people living for the approval of others and not fully embracing what is unique and wonderful about them. Often the concept of self-love and self-acceptance are not promoted so Cathy and Kayleigh are on a mission to change this.

Drawing inspiration from their own experiences in building self-confidence and courage in their lives, the authors release “J.O.Y. Journal” (published by Balboa Press), a book designed for young girls to discover their unique selves, provide a new way to explore their emotions, and build foundations of self-love through engaging and guided activities. The goal is to help them to discover who they are, build confidence and know they are worthy of becoming their best selves.

“We believe this journal will appeal to both parents and young girls alike,” the authors point out. “‘J.O.Y. Journal’ is a great resource for parents to give their child the ability to discover their unique gifts at their own pace. The journal can open the door for parent-child communication, building a higher sense of self-love and confidence and strength in children. Parents will also appreciate this journal as a legacy piece for their child to look back on fondly as they live life to the fullest.” To purchase and to know more about the book, interested parties may visit
