Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal



I have friend, she has been into adult coloring books before adult coloring books was a thing. So it's mainly because of her that I requested this book. And I almost immediately sent it to her instead of coloring in it myself when I got it because I knew that she would love it. It's perfect for those that love coloring and even for those of us that aren't sure if we do or not. I'm not sure if I'm into it, but this little graphic I found makes me want to continue to give it a try.



The size of the book is a perfect companion book. You know what I mean. Those books that we carry along with us or couple with our Bibles on our side tables. It's not overly big and it has a ton of great prompts for using to journal, color and just ponder.

I've got some pictures to share. I did a couple of tests to see exactly how far you can take this thing before you end up with less are and more trash. Colored pencils work great; wet watercolor pencils do alright, but be careful because you can waterlog and tear pretty quick; cheapo markers don't bleed but the mid price kind of nice ones go all the way through; ink doesn't dry quickly and thus colors the page facing, and crayons are just too big for the small details in the pictures.

 Overall, I like it. I'm glad that I kept it for myself :) I don't know if I like colored pencils, maybe I just need to experiment with some different brands. I would totally recommend it, especially if you are already a fan of adult coloring books or creative journaling.

A copy of this book was given to me by Tyndale House Publishers for the purpose of review. I'm never required to post a positive review but I'm always glad when I can.
