Reenie4 Stars Out Of 5a fun way to explore what brings you joyDecember 18, 2017ReenieQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is nice little artistic journal that explores what brings you joy. There are 30 days that each include an inspirational quote or verse, as well as a question to answer or creative prompt. Some days require a lot of thought like differentiating joy and happiness or identifying a truth that brings you joy. Other days are very light-hearted and may find you drawing your favorite weather or a favorite dessert. It was fun and I enjoyed it. With a journal like this, you get out what you put into it. You can spend a lot of time on each prompt or you can jot a quick note and put it down and maybe come back to it in the future. It's up to you how meaningful and deep it will be.
Thank you to Blogging for Books for providing me with a free copy of this journal. I was not required to leave a positive review. All opinions are my own.
TamiAge: 35-44Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5Creative outlet but lacking substanceDecember 6, 2017TamiAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2As the saying goes, you can't judge a book by its cover. When I first saw this little hardback book with the beautiful colors and attention to detail on the cover I was excited to get started.
A creative journal. Being someone who is drawn to artistic projects, I found the overall idea appealing but upon further examination was disappointed, as I was hoping for a little more substance.
While some may find the single color floral doodles throughout the book monotonous, others might find it soothing to simply trace the images with colored pens, color them or even the ability to create over them. I personally would have preferred more variety in the patterns and images along a darker ink color.
With a title like 30 Days to Joy and coming from a Christian publisher I suppose I had expected more scripture and a thought provoking message. Only a small portion of the "inspiration" included are scriptures and the rest are quotes or flowery sayings, many of which I would have to research to know the actual background of the author.
With prompts like "portray your favorite weather on these two pages" and "What is your favorite color? Fill these two pages with things that are that color." The book does not really teach you how to find joy in a devotional style, bulding on the concept each day as I had expected. While these creative prompts give a variety of things to draw and write I felt they were not very thought provoking and some simply didn't flow well. One quote being "joy is strength" was followed by a prompt that asked "What is your favorite dessert? Describe or draw it and write out the list of ingredients".
All in all, the book was cute at first glance but not what I had anticipated. If you're looking for a "feel good" excuse to be creative this might be for you. If you have someone you would like to lead to Christ without overwhelming them with scripture, this might make a good gift. If you're seeking an in depth Bible study with concepts that draw you closer to God and continue to build on what you've previously learned, keep looking.
I received this book from the publisher as part of the Waterbrook Creative Team in exchange for my honest review.
lesacap12625 Stars Out Of 5Beautifully made and gets you thinking about JoyNovember 26, 2017lesacap1262Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am a big book fan and love doodling and writing in journals so this book was right up my alley! This book 30 Days to Joy is meant to inspire you and assist you ponder and think about joy. What is joy? What is happiness? What is the difference? The pages are sprinkled with prompts, scripture, and room for you to respond, doodle, draw, or write. The fun of this book is that it can be whatever you want it to be. It's designed to be used for 30 days but I find myself using this a few days per week, pondering previous entries, adding to them, or just for the sake of time. The book is so pretty I don't want to rush through it. This book is well made and would be perfect for a gift. It's a hardcover, approx. 8x5, bound really nicely, the paper is smooth, thick stock, and it comes with a pretty rusty red colored ribbon.
I received a complimentary book from Waterbrook Multnomah as part of the Waterbrook Creatives Launch Team, however my opinions above are strictly my own.
Quiet Reader5 Stars Out Of 5A Great Little BookNovember 26, 2017Quiet ReaderQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 430 Days to Joy is an inspiring little book meant to teach its participant what real joy is, and how to have it in their own life. You can doodle, journal, write in poem-form your answers- or whatever else you can think of! There's no right or wrong way (my entry for day one shows several doodles, my definition and thoughts on joy, and the dictionary's definitions of both joy and happiness)- it's all pretty laid-back, the only aim being to teach you something, to make you think.
There isn't a big explanation or devotion for each day- your participation is really how you learn, which I thought was really cool. It makes you think deeply for yourself the answers to the questions (there's one a day) the book is asking you. You'll also find, at the beginning of every day, a quote or Bible verse pertaining to joy (I love quotes, so this was a big plus for me, and also showed different people's explanations and perspective on things). And the playlist they encourage you to make- what a great idea! I'm planning on looking up what playlists other people who did this book made. I'm interested in their answers and take on joy, and it just makes me feel more connected to other people learning from the same resource I am.
It's not a magic tool that will instantly give you joy through anything- only God can do that, but He can use as tools books like this to help you in your journey. There are so many hardships and trials in our lives, so many worries, this little book will prayerfully help you as you try to discover the unrelenting joy only God can bring in the midst of it all.
