In our loud and busy lives, it’s easy to miss the life-giving breeze of peace. That’s what this interactive journal is for. It’s about slowing down and taking time to pursue and embrace peace. It’s about welcoming the call to be a peacemaker. It’s about finding a peace rooted in faith rather than circumstances and living out that miracle every day. This is an invitation to create, write, doodle, and draw your way into the deep, lasting peace of God.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. —Galatians 5:22–23
Upon first glance you might think that this is just another adult coloring book. It's not. When it arrived in the mail, and I saw how small the box was that it was packaged in, I thought to myself, is this the right book? When I opened it though, I was pleasantly surprised. It's small size is perfect for toting around and keeping up with on busy days. You could bring it with you and doodle in it while waiting at the doctor's office, at a coffee shop or while riding public transportation to work.
It may be small but it is sturdy since it is a hardcover, not floppy and flimsy like a coloring book.It still provides plenty of room to transpose your thoughts, doodle in the margins and color around the quote or scripture of the day, all of which revolve around the theme of peace. I appreciate the simplicity of the books design and the challenge of seeking peace, through God, by taking time out to reflect on Him and His Word for 30 days.
Sometimes though it felt like someone just typed in the word "peace" on Google and printed out what they found without putting too much thought into it- but scripture is powerful in and of itself and stands on it's own anyway. Overall this would make a great gift!
