9/24/16 - Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal by Tyndale - Book Review for Tyndale

Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal invites you to bring creative journaling and the calming act of coloring into your quiet time with God. This beautifully designed interactive prayer book from Tyndale’s Living Expressions collection helps guide your thoughts as you pray about concerns such as health, overcoming stress, personal relationships, and more. Gratitude gives you a way to celebrate and give thanks to God for the many blessings he provides. Filled with over 100 designs to color, plenty of space for journaling and sketching, and 40 needs-based prayers, Gratitude helps you express your devotion to God with your whole heart!

I am so blessed to have received this book for review.  The cover is amazing.  Not only is this a hardcover book but Tyndale has added an extra support to aid in coloring.  There are heart-felt prayers, scriptures of encouragement, space for journaling and the most fun part...coloring pages!

This is one from Tyndale's Living Expressions collection.  Gratitude is small enough to fit in your purse or briefcase.  It would be wonderful to use on your lunch break or to settle back in a comfy chair and color, pray or reflect (or all three).  Some of the pages are in black and white to give you the opportunity to express yourself and some of the pages have some color already added to jump start your creativity.

Tyndale's Pinterest page has downloadable coloring pages to whet your interest.

I have many coloring books and journals, none like this.  I would recommend this book to anyone that likes to color or would like to have a prayer and praise journal.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.  I am very grateful for them for that.

9/17/16 - Sunday Suppers by Karen Mordechai review for Blogging for Books

KAREN MORDECHAI, a photographer and stylist, is the founder of Sunday Suppers, a Brooklyn-based food community and blog that has won many accolades, including a 2013 Food and Wine Digital Award, top food blog by Saveur, and #6 in’s Top 50 Design Blogs. Karen’s work is regularly featured in the New York Times, Martha Stewart Living, Remodelista, New York magazine, and more. She lives with her husband and daughter in Brooklyn, New York.

Sunday Suppers is a beautiful cookbook from the simple gray cloth cover to the beautiful photographs within.  The recipes are sophisticated and look delicious.  The recipes are more for the city dweller with ingredients that may not be readily available in all areas of the country.  Sunday Suppers gives you recipes for Morning, Lunch and Supper.  The recipes can be used for dinner parties or intimate gatherings.

Foodies would love this cookbook.  Even those of us that don't live in or near a city can grab a few recipes from the book.  The cookbook is lovely and I would recommend it to anyone.

I received this book for free from Blogging For Books Program in exchange for my honest review.
