Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal invites you to mix creative journaling and coloring into your personal time with God. Prayers that focus on topics such as being thankful, dealing with stress and heartache, caring for yourself and others, listening for God’s leading, and waiting patiently on Him will guide your thoughts and calm your spirit. Filled with more than 100 designs to color, plenty of space for journaling, and 40 needs-based prayers, Tranquility will help you express your devotion to God with your whole heart.

Hardcover, 112 pages

Various subjects in this book include a devotional prayer and bible verse along with space to journal and something to color. 

Not fond of the front and back covers which are made of cardboard reminiscent of a composition notebook. The inside pages are a nice quality for writing and coloring. The size (basically 6 x 8) makes it convenient, not too big and not too small. Not my cup of tea, but I recommend it for artsy people of the Christian faith.

A Back-To-School DIY Project

 

Very inexpensive 

Fun for all ages

Useful

and Thoughtful

 

With a few inexpensive supplies, some that you already have around the house, anyone can create a Composition Notebook Journal for school or to make as a gift. 

Requires Only:

(1) Composition Notebook – the hardback black and white kind for about 50 cents during pre-school sales

(2) Two or more pieces of scrapbook paper

(3) Stickers and Ribbon

(4) Glue Stick and Scissors

Trace around the front and back of the book. I don’t cover over the black spine.

Cut out and glue in place. (Ideal for little hands to practice trace, cut, and glue)

The inside front and back cover can also be covered with paper.

I was going to use lavender for the front of my journal but, of course, I changed my mind and used periwinkle.

   Then design the cover. 

And don’t forget to give your journal a ribbon bookmark. Use a large sticker to attach the ribbon to the back of the book. 

  A finished journal ready to use.

Autumn made one, too.

 The inside pages can also get some special touches.

 

I’d love to see your journal.
