“Journaling with Jesus” is a non-fiction, self-help book by Carol Round. She also has a forty day companion study guide/journal.
“Journaling with Jesus” begins by teaching that prayer is a one on one conversation with God. Carol teaches why we would want to keep a journal – mainly to enhance and strengthen our spiritual journey.
I too have been keeping a “Jesus Journal” (what I call mine) for many years. As Carol explains, I have been able to look back and see God’s blessing in the past to be encouraged through trying times in the present.
She uses a lot of Scripture throughout and gives plenty of resources at the end.
I enjoyed reading this book because I have seen the benefits in my own life and agree with what Carol teaches. I would recommend this book.
Carol Round has also written a companion “study guide” for her book, “Journaling with Jesus”. I would say it is a 40 day “journal” to help us get started. There is a daily Scripture, a question to get the day started, a short prayer, and then a page to record thoughts and prayers. At the end of each day she adds a “Faith Step”.
This book makes a great companion to “Journaling with Jesus”.
