Book Review - Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal

Book Description: Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal invites you to bring creative journaling and the calming act of coloring into your quiet time with God. This beautifully designed interactive prayer book from Tyndale’s Living Expressions collection helps guide your thoughts as you pray about concerns such as health, overcoming stress, personal relationships, and more. Gratitude gives you a way to celebrate and give thanks to God for the many blessings he provides. Filled with over 100 designs to color, plenty of space for journaling and sketching, and 40 needs-based prayers, Gratitude helps you express your devotion to God with your whole heart!

My Thoughts: Over the course of a few weeks I used this as my daily devotional and a way to refocus my thoughts and become closer to God. As someone who's a beginning a journal, I liked the prompts offered on the pages. At least for me, it's helpful to have a starting point already there. Something to focus my thoughts and help me to get words on the page. I found it a lot less intimidating than just a blank page. The other unique feature of this prayer and praise Journal was the coloring aspect. Adult coloring books are becoming really popular. As studies have shown coloring is a good stress relief tool. So I thought it was pretty Innovative to have that a part of a devotional Journal. Some days when I wasn't ready to put words on the page it was still nice to be able to pull out the journal and color. Even while coloring I was able to calm my mind and my body and then be able to focus on praying or praising God. Overall I really recommend this book to anyone looking for a good devotional or way to calm your spirit and mind.
