Book Review - Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal

Book Synopsis
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 Review
Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal is such a unique and delightful book! It is at once a gratitude journal, a prayer diary, and a coloring book. I have never seen a book like it before, and absolutely love it!

You will find features like "Love One Another" (with space to list new friends who may need prayers), "I Am Grateful" (with space to sketch people and things you are grateful for, along with a beautiful bird illustration to color), "Friends are the Family I Have Chosen" (with space to journal about friends), "Count Your Blessings" (with space for sketching and a beautiful Blessings illustration to color).

The book has a sturdy sketchbook type cover, with a beautiful, colorful flower illustration. The pages of the book are not perforated or folded at the binding, but I found they stayed open well for sketching, coloring, and journaling.

I love the way this book incorporates so many things I love at once - gratitude, prayer, sketching, writing, and coloring. To open Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal is to begin a creativity journey. I recommend this book so highly for your own enjoyment, or for a special gift.

Please also visit the Tyndale Inspire Creativity board on Pinterest for free downloadable coloring pages.

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
