My Review


I have enjoyed my time spent reading the prayers in this journal. They are relevant to life and circumstances that many of us experience at one time or another. 


The coloring pages are a bonus! With designs that are pleasantly harmonious with the prayers, you can spend time contemplating on the prayer while you color. 


There’s room to journal your own response to the prayers but if you prefer not to do that, you can doodle in the areas for expressing your thoughts with stamps, Washi tape, and/or pre-made embellishments. Artistic talent is not essential for this journal. 


Most of us can use a little serenity in life, and Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal is a great choice. 


I received a complimentary copy of the book for review purposes from Tyndale House.

~Happy Coloring~
 

I would have made pictures to go with my review but my camera wasn't working right and the ones I took with my phone didn't come out clear enough. 

Then, I had to head to NC when my FIL was admitted to hospice earlier this month. I am sitting with him daily, so my presence on social media is not much right now. Our family appreciates your prayers as we traverse this journey. We have certainly felt the Lord's presence sustaining us each day!

Psalm 73:26

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Coming Soon!!!

July needs to hurry up and get here because I can't wait to hold a copy of this long awaited book in my hands! Roseanna is one of my favorite authors! I know I have said it many times but it's true!!! She has a unique way of weaving a story together that - every. single. time. - leaves me on the edge of my seat!

A Name Unknown (Shadows Over England #1) 
by Roseanna M. White 


Expected publication: July 4th 2017 by Bethany House 

Edwardian Romance and History Gains a Twist of Suspense

Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins that helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they concentrate on stealing high-value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. But when Rosemary must determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany, she is in for the challenge of a lifetime. How does one steal a family's history, their very name?

Peter Holstein, given his family's German blood, writes his popular series of adventure novels under a pen name. With European politics boiling and his own neighbors suspicious of him, Peter debates whether it might be best to change his name for good. When Rosemary shows up at his door pretending to be a historian and offering to help him trace his family history, his question might be answered.

But as the two work together and Rosemary sees his gracious reaction to his neighbors' scornful attacks, she wonders if her assignment is going down the wrong path. Is it too late to help him prove that he's more than his name?

:::

Doesn't this sound like a page turner?! If you aren't familiar with Roseanna's books, I hope will be before this one comes out. Truly, her voice is one-of-a-kind!

Happy Reading, Y'all!
