Show synopsis From illustrated prayer books and altered hymnals to "raw" expressions of devotion to God through paint, pen and paper, "Faith Books & Spiritual Journaling" offers a personal glimpse into projects that truly elevate the soul. Author Sharon Soneff and a band of artful contributors explore how these simply constructed books, journals, and paper craft techniques can produce work that is profoundly meaningful, serving to deepen and even transform your faith. With practical and helpful advice at the beginning of every chapter provided by Mindy Caliguire, a noted Christian women's leader and author, you are sure to feel both equipped and inspired to craft your own faith book, yielding a dynamic combination of internal spiritual growth and outward artistic growth. "I have neither the creative impulse nor the technical skills to craft expressions of faith like those pictured and described in Faith Books & Spiritual Journaling. But this beautiful book has challenged and inspired me to honor, and record, more thoughtfully the work of God in my own life. Visual images created by gifted artists tied together with Mindy Caliguire's delicate ribbon of words remind me that prayerful pursuit of God is worth our best investment of time, energy and creativity." Lynne Hybels, Willow Creek Community Church, author "Nice Girls Don't Change the World"
