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.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
