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.

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap.




Study Questions Week 10


When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others? When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person?When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments? God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise? Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even if you are in the midst of a s…
