Book Review of Gratitude: A Prayer & Praise Coloring Journal

Hey Ya’ll! It’s time for another Book Review for Tyndale House Publishing! If you missed last week’s review of 365 Pocket Morning Prayers, you can find it here

This week’s book review is pretty special in that it is a Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal focused on gratitude, published by Tyndale House Publishers. It combines my favorite loves – spaces to journal prayers/thoughts to the Lord, and lots of amazing images to color. Scripture and words of encouragement are shared throughout the journal.In addition to great images to color, there are also pages where you get to draw something yourself based on the prompt. Some pages are already colored in by the publisher – this made it less daunting for me, but might not be desirable for those of you who are coloring pros!

I specifically like that I can skip around throughout the pages – there’s no need to go in order, just do what I feel that day. I love that I can set it down and pick it back up again when I need some refreshing. There is a mix of intricate designs as well as simple designs (see tulips below). I like this because I can never seem to finish coloring the intricate designs in one sitting. I have some travel coming up, so I definitely plan to take this along with me! The size is perfect for travel – and did I mention it has a hardback cover?! LOVE IT!

This prayer and praise coloring journal provides a unique way to connect with God. This is a fairly new process for me, so I was a little hesitant a first. I am still learning to embrace a new way of connecting with God through art, and I love it. If you are looking for something fresh and new for your quiet time to switch it up, I definitely recommend this book – which also makes a great gift!

 

I have included a few pictures in the slide show below. Enjoy! Looking for some ideas? Check out Tyndale’s Inspire Creativity Pinterest Board. You can also go to Tyndale’s Living Expressions Collection for related items such as other coloring journals and journaling Bibles.

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in order to complete a review.

About stacynjeffries

Life is a collection of our stories, a collection of moments. I love to tell stories! I think that through storytelling, we get to share glimpses of our lives with each other, to see the world in the other person’s eyes. Through the laughter and the tears our stories offer encouragement and hope to others. This space was created so that I could share my stories of healing, redemption, living fully alive, and finding my voice again. I hope my words encourage you wherever you are on the path. I hope you laugh. I hope you cry. I hope you feel and come alive again. I hope you find your own path to redemption and healing. I hope you find your own voice for telling your stories and sharing your heart with the world. God is with you. God is for you. God sees you and He hears your prayers, and He bends down to listen.
