INTRODUCTION

RANQUILITY: a state of calmness, peacefulness, quietness, serenity. In a hectic and busy world, achieving this can seem impossible. But with intentional effort, you can escape the urgent and soak in tranquility at every level — heart, mind, body, and spirit. The meditative ART of creative expression provides a wonderful outlet for relaxation.

Coloring, journaling, and drawing can also provide effective tools for deepening your faith. And when you allow your mind to center on THE TRUTH of God's Word while adding color and inner creativity, your devotional life can soar with NEW DIMENSION.

As you enter into the prayers offered in this book, spend time thinking about what you are saying to God. Take it slow. You may even want to personalize each prayer to reflect the needs and hopes you have for your own life. To make your time even more MEaningful, write down your own prayers and color the artwork, or CREATE your own drawing.

Let this experience take you to a greater level of connection with God. Suggestions are added along the way to further inspire you in this time of quiet reflection and prayer. Don't worry about the end result; let God lead the way as you allow yourself to fully EXPERIENCE tranquility.

I'm not one much for coloring books, haven't gotten into them before, until I saw this book. I saw this book, and because my friend was into coloring I decided to give it a try. I really enjoyed the small prompts for prayer as I wrote inside the journal. And the coloring didn't hinder from the enjoyable experience, like I had thought it would. I will be getting this for a few of my friends later down the line, and maybe keeping a spare to share with someone I may meet later in my life. A very good gift in my opinion! I received this book in exchange for an honest review, which I have

Oh joy!! I love devotionals and I love coloring books – and this prayer journal is a blend of both. What an enjoyable and enriching way to de-stress, reflect, and worship. Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal inspires me to calm my busy mind to spend creative moments with my Lord. Prayer time isn’t always on bended knees, with eyes closed. Prayer and worship is communicating with the Lord, and that can be in so many forms—singing, writing, reading, coloring, meditation, etc. Each page of this hardcover book is interactive, encouraging the reader to color, draw, reflect, or write a prayer. The illustrations are cute, and the Prayer pages are inspiring. This book makes an excellent gift, but I suggest you get at least two—for surely, you will want to keep one for yourself. This is an entertaining, meaningful, and creative way to worship. I received a complimentary copy of this book from TyndaleBloggers.

tranquility is a “prayer and reflection coloring journal” from Living Expressions, a Tyndale Branch. I’ve already reviewed another of these colouring journals on my blog, but it’s always fun to review coloring journals! First off, let me just say that I like the color scheme of this journal so much more! The other book has orange and mint green, which I just wasn’t really a fan of. The cover of tranquility is so cute! The inside features pages with color, and pages without color, for coloring. There are pages with space for writing (both prompts and blank spaces for meditation) as well as drawing. There are also some written in prayers that you can pray while working on the exercises (which I’m not *entirely* a fan of because some don’t really apply, but overall it’s fine). For the coloring pages, the pages are all really pretty and intricate. The pages also don’t bleed through, so marker works, which is super nice! The illustrations are very elegant as well. Originally found on: https://rockandminerals4him.wordpress.com/2017/06/12/book-review-tranquility-a-prayer-and-reflection-coloring-journal/ I received a free paper copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion; I was not required to leave a positive review.

Coloring Books for Adults? Have you tried the latest passion, coloring for adults? More specifically, have you tried one of the coloring books made for grownups? Whether or not you have already given this latest pastime a try, rush to get a copy of Tranquility. This amazing volume can be used in many ways. As the name says, it is a coloring book, but it is so much more than that. You can write your inner thoughts and reflections using this as a diary. It can also be used as a prayer journal to keep track of prayer requests and answered prayers. There are lots of coloring pages to get your creative juices going. Additionally, there are pages that have scripture and prayer that will put you in a contemplative mood. Other pages ask you questions or give you something to ponder as you make unique colored pictures. All of this is featured in a sturdy book with tough chipboard covers. It is also the perfect size to slip into a backpack, purse or tote to have handy wherever life takes you. I have seen a good number of coloring books for adults. Many of them are very over sized making it difficult to take along with you throughout your day. There are also very few that are done from a Christian perspective. Tranquility goes the extra mile and not only does it with a Christian point of view, but includes all the lovely extras wrapped up in a durable hardback cover that is easy to bring along. Coloring for adults is supposed to be a stress reliever, and a way to be creative. I think combining those two areas with a spiritual aspect is a home run! I highly recommend this 5-star book, and think it will deepen your relationship with God, as well as, give you a place to make gorgeous pictures.

Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal by Tyndale  a beautiful little gift book that cannot easily be placed in one single genre.  Although its title mentions "coloring" and "journal", this book is a hyrbid devotional first and foremost with a number of beautiful and intricate illustrations perfect for coloring with colored pencils.  In some form or another, illustrations and even serene photos adorn each page. Unlike other coloring books or devotionals which can seem monotonous or repetitious, there is a lot of original content and variation from page to page to keep the reader engaged.  There are a lot of unexpected little details in this book.  On some pages, they span across a full page or even a two page spread like a traditional adult coloring book.  On other pages, small decorative illustrations are used either as a border or a decorative accent- which can also be colored.  Some pages feature full color graphics and art.  Most pages feature a short devotional entry based on a scripture or theme making this a devotional book.  There is also lined space for journaling as well as blank page space for free writing or free drawing and doodles.  This book allows for a great amount of creativity.  This is a beautiful keepsake for yourself or to give as a gift to a loved one.     As a blogger I received a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review.  This book is part of the Living Expressions collection.

I am really enjoying this special journal! First of all, it is absolutely beautiful and well constructed. I love the artwork on the cover and all throughout the pages. But, what I am loving best of all is the various ways I can sit down and use this journal. Sometimes I open to a page and read the prayer and accompanying Bible verse, then simply think on what I’ve read. Other times, I read the selection and then write my feelings or thoughts in the area provided. And finally, there are times I simply need to take a breather and relax. These are the times when I pick up a colored pencil and work on filling in one of the adult coloring book style illustrations. I’m finding this jounal to be very versatile and the topics covered are ones that are really helpful to me right now. I received a complimentary copy of this journal. All opinions are my own.

Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal by Tyndale is a fabulous way to find peace and calmness in your day! I've been using this for a couple of weeks now in the mornings and I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful it is. As a child I've always enjoyed coloring so to do that on an adult level with some pretty gel pens is extremely fun and relaxing. Then, to do all that with the focus on God and prayer has been amazing in my life. This Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal helps to set the tone for my day and I found that I'm more focused on what matters in life and everything else just seems to fall into place. I'm excited each night thinking about waking up early before the kiddos to dive into my Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal. It pulls me out of bed each morning and sometimes when my 9 year old wakes up early she joins me which has helped us to spend some quality time together. Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal by Tyndale is a terrific journal and I highly recommend it! Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for my honest review. I only recommend products I've used personally, and believe will be good fit for consumers.

Having a prayer journal is vital for me. It helps me to keep my thoughts from wandering but it also keeps track of those I pray for and what I am praying for. I can always look back and see God's faithfulness not only in answering my prayers but often times in ways I never could have imagined had these been my ways of answering them instead. It helps me keep my mind focused on the present day and not praying for healing that may never come this side of heaven, but one that will come with 100% certainty knowing God always keeps His promises to those who are faithful to Him. I absolutely had to share my latest find with you from Tyndale House Publishers, a prayer journal and adult coloring book all in one, called Tranquility! The name is perfect because once our prayers are cast before the throne room of God, we can rest assured that He hears them. Just the name tranquility conveys a state of calmness, peacefulness, quietness and even serenity. In a hectic and busy world, just trying to achieve this can seem impossible. We all know that meditative art, like coloring, can provide a wonderful outlet for expression and relaxation to our Creator God. Coloring, journaling our prayers and thoughts, and drawing can also provide effective tools for deepening our faith. And when we allow our minds to center on the Truth of God's Word while adding color and inner creativity, our devotional time can soar with greater dimensions. Let the experience of writing down your prayers, thoughts or ideas take you to a greater level of connection with God. Suggestions are offered in this book to further inspire you in this time of quiet reflection and prayer. Don't worry about your results but let God lead the way as you experience the tranquility that can only come from spending time with Him. I received Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal by Living Expressions compliments of Tyndale House Publishers. There are so many great pictures to color and let your creativity and imagination go free with your expressions in this coloring journal coupled with Scriptures from the Bible and some suggestions about prayer for that particular day. There are pages for doing your own drawings as well as those that accompany their own illustrated prayer pages. There are even places of notes or ideas you might want to keep and reflect upon later. 110 pages full of great Biblical inspirations to make this hard cover prayer journal truly unique. I give this a 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion and would make a perfect Mother's Day gift!

I was so glad to see Tyndale had created yet another wonderful coloring book! The first one I got from this line was their Gratitude: Prayer & Praise Journal. And like the one before, this one is filled with beautifully illustrated pictures and encouraging, uplifting, inspiring words and pictures to meditate and reflect on! Don't believe me, take a look: And that's only but a few pages! Each page is filled with something to color or discover. I love this book! This makes a wonderful gift for yourself or a friend or family member for any time of year! I give this book a 5 out of 5 ! I received this book for free from the publisher’s in exchange for this honest and unbiased review for Tyndale.

** “Tranquility: a state of calmness, peacefulness, quietness, serenity. … Coloring, journaling, and drawing can also provide effective tools for deepening your faith.” ** Tyndale has created another beautiful book, “Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal,” that would make a beautiful gift for oneself or for a loved one. With a stunning, colorfully embossed hardcover, “Tranquility” features 110 pages of lovely drawings, photos and words of inspiration and reflection. Most of the pages contain images to color. Some pages, though, are filled with photographs or gorgeous full-color drawings to lead the reader in offering praise and worship to God while reflecting on their faith. Most pages feature a prayer and verse to offer inspiration for journaling one’s thoughts and prayers on that day’s particular topic. Other pages provide opportunities for other forms of creativity, like “Artfully illustrate the word peace below,” or “Jot down some small ways you can show kindness to others” (this entry includes cute “picture frames” you can color and then jot your ideas in). Each page focuses on a different theme, like The Ultimate Gift of Grace, A Friend Who is Always There, A Kind Word Can Make Someone’s Day, You are a Mirror of God, and Come to Jesus. Those who use this journal could fill each page one day at a time, or work at whatever pace they want. Also, pages can be done in any order, as the entries are not dated or numbered. Feel free to skip around. “Tranquility” is a great resource for those who enjoy the adult coloring trend, as well as those who enjoy journaling, all while bringing the focus to God and the reader’s faith journey. And it’s small and durable enough to tuck into your purse or bag. Five stars out of five. Tyndale House Publishers provided this complimentary copy for my honest, unbiased review.

First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, TRANQUILITY: A PRAYER AND REFLECTION COLORING JOURNAL includes prayers and a verse for each entry along with coloring pictures for you to calm yourself, destress, or pray while coloring. Lines are included for thoughts, prayer requests, and more. There are even parts where the author encourages you to draw your own pictures. If you are looking for a prayer and coloring journal then TRANQUILITY will be a good one to consider. It would be good for an Easter gift, a mother's day gift, a birthday gift, or an anytime gift for your favorite woman or girl. My tween daughter was quick to claim my copy, so any age, tween to senior citizen, will love this. Recommended.
