For people of faith, we all know that we should be creating space for spending time with God. But there are times when we allow busy or boredom to push us away from the sacred moments with God. It’s at these times when breaking from our routines can breathe new life into our spiritual walk.
That’s why I like Tyndale’s Living Expressions collection, which combines reading and studying God’s Word with creative expressions such as coloring, journaling, or drawing. If you are one that enjoys adult coloring, you might enjoy Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal. With spaces for both coloring and journaling, it packs a two for one punch. The book contains over 100 designs to color and 40 needs-based prayers.
Unwrapping this book, I was amazed at how lovely the cover was in person. The sturdy hardback cover makes it easy to color without needing any other support. I have used my Stabilo markers in the book and found the ink to be only slightly visible through the adjoining page. The size of the book makes it great to pack in a bag. It would be a nice addition to a gift basket or as addition to your own library.

Gratitude gives you a way to celebrate and give thanks to God for the many blessings he provides.

Another resource from Tyndale is 365 Pocket Morning Prayers: Strength and Joy to Begin Each Day.
Designed to help you release your troubles and concerns into God’s care, this book is a nice little prayer starter tool. These short daily prayers can be helpful prompts of new issues to bring before God. A nice thing about this book is that it is not dated, which makes it easy to begin anywhere. You can read by topic or in chronological order. The beauty of a book like this is that it sparks inspiration and can be ideal for the beginner or someone well on in their spiritual journey. I’m convinced that we often make prayer more complicated than it should be. Dave Veerman, the author, says prayer is a privilege, powerful and personal and I certainly agree.
Although the book wouldn’t fit in any pocket of mine, its 4×6 size makes it’s easy to carry with you. Take a look inside 365 Pocket Morning Prayers.
I was provided a complimentary copy of each of these books by Tyndale House Publishers for review purposes.
