As I get older I find myself beginning to reflect more on what God has given me in my life, and to see and appreciate every detail. No matter how tiny it may seem. Sometimes, though, I get so worked up over those small things that I forget to hand it all over to Him and just relax. So I’ve looked for ways to help me do that. One way is using adult coloring pages and journals. Aren’t they all the rage these days?
There’s a good reason they’re all the rage. They’re fantastic! One of my favorites comes in the form of a prayer and praise journal. I partnered with Tyndale and they sent me a complimentary one to show you what I’m talking about.
Gratitude: A Prayer And Praise Coloring journal with adult coloring pages. I say “adult coloring pages” because of some of the detail in them. A child could also use this journal but I love the idea of adults having something to help focus on prayer, gratitude and relaxation.
Each page has a prayer and an accompanying Bible verse along with plenty of space for journaling and black and white areas to color. Before my mom passed away she found that coloring calmed her nerves. She had tons of coloring books, markers, pens, crayons and colored pencils and she would sit for hours and just color. Then she started keeping a journal of how she was feeling each day and what she was thankful for. This Gratitude journal would have been perfect for her!
The colors of some of the pages are in yellow, orange and blue green tones. It is very soothing to look at. Even though each page is similar in that they offer us places to express our gratitude, each is still different in appearance and I feel like I’m not going to get bored with it and stick it in a desk drawer. I look forward to writing in it and coloring the pages each day.

This journal is the perfect way to write down your worries, thoughts and prayers for family and friends. At the same time, it helps me to reconnect with God on a more personal level by letting Him know that I am thankful for everything he has given me and reminding me to thank Him daily.
