Synopsis:
“Journaling with Jesus is a creative call to an authentic, intimate relationship with Christ through the art of prayer-journaling. Author Carol Round openly shares her own intimate journaling journey, initially borne of pain, and now bathed in promise—the hope of healing in Jesus. Let her sensitively guide you along your own prayer path through balanced scriptural support, stories from the lives of women transformed through the power of journaling, encouraging explanations about the benefits of journaling, and timely tips about how to start. Allow Journaling with Jesus to take you deep into the heart of God, by showing you practically and inspirationally how to bare the depths of your own heart on the blank page. As you fill your journal with words of honesty, God will fill your heart with the wonder of His love.” —LYNN D. MORRISSEY, author of Love Letters to God: Deeper IntimacyThrough Written Prayer “The initiative of God to restore relationship with every person requires our engagement. The age-old battle to create space to spend time with Him can be supported by the spiritual discipline of keeping a journal. Carol Round understands this. I encourage your pursuit of this commitment as you read Journaling with Jesus.” —STEVE LASWELL, author of The Journey–A Personal Journal and The Journey–Personal Notes from the Father.



My Review:
Oh my, Oh my. What a journey through this book. Journaling with JESUS How to Draw Closer to God is an exceptional way to realize that writing in a journal about your own feelings and using scriptures to aid you in getting to know exactly where you are with God. 

I have done jounaling through out my christian life. And as a minister it has helped me getting messages together. Helped in getting my prayer life straight. And also have used it in doing a prayer journal for prayer requests that others have given to me. 

But this journal is a different way of getting to the root of God and having a different kind of relationship between you and Him. 

I love how Author Carol Round has also given you tools not only with in the book, but near the end she also gives you more resources as well as a good list of her other books. 

A Must Read and Journal in!!  I recommend you take this journey through Journaling with Jesus! 

So due to the above I am giving this book a Breath of Life Rating of:


 FIVE Clock Rating!!
