Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal


A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal from Tyndale


Tyndale House Publishers has produced several high quality coloring journal products in the past, and the Gratitude prayer and praise journal is no different. I purchased the Inspire creative journaling Bible for my wife earlier this year, and she loved it. Gratitude is similar to the Bible in that it contains lines for journaling and pictures for coloring. The difference, however, is Gratitude contains selected verses and scriptural prayers to help the readers focus on praise and prayer. The book is exceptional for two reasons: the quality of the craftsmanship and the quality of the content.  


First, the book is well made. The front and back are hardback, but the spine is paperback. This may seem odd, but it really is nice. The hardback cover keeps the book from getting beat up, and the paperback spine allows the book to lay flat. In addition, the paper on which the verses and pictures are printed is nice and thick. Pen ink, coloring pencils, and markers do not bleed through the paper, which is important due to the nature of the book. Overall, it is a well-made, durable book.


Second, the content of the book is excellent. The passages selected for reflection revolve around prayer and praise, leading the reader to engage in prayer and praise God. There is ample space for journaling, so the reader has room to record their thoughts, prayers, and praises. The pictures are creative and aesthetically appealing, and anyone using the book will enjoy them.


Bottom line: this is an excellent journal for Christians to use as they seek to grow in the areas of prayer and praise to God.
