Title: Into his presence – an interactive prayer journal designed for teens, by teens
Author: Joanne Gilchrist and Shell Perris
Illustrator: Gail Hanks
Published by: Fieldnote.co.uk
Price: RRP £7.99
Good for: Anyone who wants space to journal but would also like some jumping off points
Best bit: fabulous quality paper, nice design, really like the QR code to a piece of music!
Worst bit: Quite a lot of words and not very large print
I’d love to hear more of the story of this journal as it’s really nice.
I love having something which feels such good quality, and gold foiling on the cover is special.
Inside, there’s four page s(2 double page spreads) for each prayer time, with a simple pattern as well as some variables:
Each time there’s:
- a worship track
- a Bible verse
- a large space to draw/write what the Spirit is saying
- space to write mini miracles (things we’re thankful for), things we’re sorry for and things we’re proud of
- space to write prayers for myself and others
Then there’s a variety of extras, from verses which speak to my identity to recommended apps and books.
I am not convinced this is really for teens, as I’m not one and I want one. Saying that, I think the interactive stuff will definitely appeal to teens, and I love this completely different approach. You should get one for yourself, and one for that teenage God-child of yours (for whom you don’t know what to buy) 😉
