My New Prayer Journal is Out!

Today is one of a few, purely self-promoting posts you'll see on this site. But I'm so excited about the beautiful journal that Worthy Inspired has created from While My Soldier Serves, I just have to share. 

I feel like I can, because really, I had nothing to do with this amazing book. Sure I wrote the original book, but what they did with the journal takes my breath away. So I'm going to give you a tour. 

The picture at the top of this post is the front cover. It's richly embossed and solid. It also has a stay-flat spine so it's easy to write in.

 The two pictures above are of the two intro pages. 


These two pictures are of one of the journal pages. I love the layout because there's part of the prayer, to help us get started. Then plenty of room to write or even draw.

Finally, the picture above is of what I consider to be one of the hidden gems in this book. There's a keepsake pocket attached to the inside of the back cover. How cool is that?

Because I want to share more than just my excitement, I'm going to be doing a drawing for 2 copies of this journal. Everyone who leaves a comment and/or shares the information about it will be entered into the drawing. 

Here's the link to While My Soldier Serves Prayer Journal

To sweeten the pot, if anyone leaves a review for the original While My Soldier Serves or the While My Soldier Serves Prayer Journal I'll put your name in a drawing for a set of both books and a patriotic shopping tote. I'll be giving away up to 3 sets, depending on how many of you write a review. I'll give away 1 set for every 5 reviews posted. (Here's a post on How to Write a Book Review) If you've previously written a review, that counts too. Just leave a comment and let me know you wrote a review and I'll add your name to the drawing. 

Thank you all for letting me share this part of my own publishing journey!

Don't forget to join the conversation!

    Sending you a CCC WooHoo! You give me such a great example of a balcony person.......always lifting others up. It is exciting to see your work lifted up and have Worthy Inspired lean over from the balcony to call out your faithful efforts of putting God Word whispered in your spirit on paper to bless others.
