Review: Tranquility: A Prayer and Reflection Coloring Journal
Compiled by Amie Carlson

I have become a believer in the adult coloring books, an admission that will sway my opinion of this book. Coloring books in general require me to stop, slow down, and relax. Add a time to consider what a Bible verse says and things are good. Very good, in fact. That’s what this journal is about.
Tranquility describes this journal well. The introduction page says tranquility is a state of calmness, peacefulness, quietness, serenity. Sounds wonderful already. Just typing those words felt good. The book has small drawings on nearly every page that may be colored, a few lines (or more) to use as the reader sees fit, and a short paragraph to encourage some prayer.
The overall size doesn’t exceed a child’s book. No giant designs to labor over. One a day would require probably less than 30 minutes time each. You can fit this into your schedule without rearranging your life totally.
The cover is my only nit and it’s just an unusual combination of a board cover and a paper cover. But, that helps protect the inner pages if you are one to carry it wherever you go.
If you haven’t tried a coloring book yet, this one would be a great place to start. Gentle, thoughtful, and just a nice set of pages to help you to tranquility.
I received this book from the publisher in return for a review.
