My thoughts:

The Illustrated Word I will be using this journal during my quiet time. I started coloring some of the beautiful pictures in this journal. It’s such a peaceful practice and I love doing it. I loved the fact that you can combine coloring with journal, yes!

Illuminate Your Story What I liked about this book was how you are walked through different lettering and ways to flourish the letters of the alphabet. I will admit it was a bit difficult because I am not overly artistic but I wish I was. But I enjoyed trying.

Faith and Lettering I really enjoyed copying the scriptures in here but making them pretty visually. I am not overly artistic so this was a great practice for me. You could even practice how to make flourishes. Overall, just a beautiful book.

Grab your copies at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com or your favorite retailer.

Copies of these books where given to me. All opinions are my own.
