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.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

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.

Journey to Love Matt Mikalatos

Did you read Sky Lantern ? No? Well, go read it and then come back for this book. Yes, order them at the same time! I promise you, they'll both be worth it and they really are part of one another. Here's why, Matt Mikalatos lost a very dear friend, Shasta, he tells part of their story in Sky Lantern and fulfills a promise to with Journey to Love.  Journey to Love is a little book, almost a 40 day devotional with little vignettes of love and then ways for you to reflect that love and an exercise to grow in that aspect of love. It's not an easy book because love isn't an easy thing. the reflections and exercises sometimes take a few days to work through or a lifetime if we're honest.  I was touched by how Mikalatos decided to fulfill his promise to Shasta, how he managed to leave a little bit of their love on the written page for people to witness for years to come. It's beautiful and heartbreaking and challenging and rewarding. To be able to have a little glimpse
