As part of Tyndale’s Blogger Review program, I agreed to provide an honest review in exchange for a free copy of Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal.
I’ve always been happy to see my children coloring, especially when they were younger. I figured it was a painless way to achieve better motor skills and improve their handwriting, something that some of my boys really needed work on. There has been evidence that benefits to coloring don’t stop when you grow out of childhood. Coloring can be a great stress-reliever and also be an opportunity to sit and relax and be creative without having to put in too much effort.
Gratitude- A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal from Tyndale was created to give you a creative outlet while meditating on God’s Word and promises.
Here is the publisher’s description.
I was impressed with this beautiful hardbound book. The pages are beautifully done. Many have just a little bit of color added to get you started.
There are also pages with blank spaces or with journaling lines to allow you freedom to express yourselves more freely.
I enjoyed coloring its pages in the evening when we would read aloud as a family. Since we have a toddler, who doesn’t yet enjoy the books we’re reading aloud, it gave me something to do with her during this time. I used our favorite colored pencils which I think make everything look better.
I also appreciated the prayers and scripture verses throughout the book.
I highly recommend Gratitude to anyone who is looking for a relaxing past-time, desires to color alongside their children but is wanting something more challenging than the usual coloring books, or is looking for a gift for someone creative.
