“Gratitude: a Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal” from Tyndale House

I recently had the chance to look through Gratitude: a Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal. This nonfiction book was published on September 1, 2016, by Tyndale House.

About this book (from the back cover):

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!

Final Verdict:

This book is absolutely beautiful! It would be a great entry into the world of journaling. It gives you prompts to inspire your prayer journaling, and the coloring pages are intricate and fun. This would also be a great gift book.Coloring has been found to reduce stress, and I love being able to relax and color while listening to a favorite audiobook. My daughters are 7 and 9, and they join the adults in our “big church” service on Sunday mornings, where they are able to keep themselves occupied by coloring; it’s nice, because they’re not a distraction to anyone else, and they’re still able to hear the sermon!

Here are some of the examples of the beautiful insides of this journal:

And another example:

This book is a beautiful journal that would make a wonderful teacher gift or Christmas present! My daughters and I found a great deal on high-quality colored pencils, and are now enjoying coloring through these beautiful pages together.
