Faith Books & Spiritual Journaling: Expressions Of Faith Through Art (Quarry Book)

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

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to express their spiritual thoughts and ideas in different artistic ways. The visuals are very clear and there are lots of inspirational projects.

Some beautiful art work in this collection. The perspective is deeply Christian, so those of us on the periphery will have to tread carefully. Still, great projects like the prayer board will translate well to anyone in search of religious reflection through design and self-publishing.

this book is an excellent title with great photos, great text, and great projects. i seriously recommend it to any woman of faith or woman's group (or men!) seeking to meditate on and express their faith through art projects. even as a new mother with very little free time, i find myself often thinking and flipping through this book for ideas to create sooner rather than later. deeply Christ-centered and beautiful expressions of faith.

Great ideas that inspired me to make journals for my "older" family members. Often unwilling to follow through on projects, they love the books and love the idea of journaling this way. We will have a record of their faith to share with the next generations.

Gorgeously photographed, sensitively written, this would be such a lovely gift. Beautiful projects and many good ideas. I love this book.

I love this book. It is so full of wonderful information about different kinds of faith books and beautiful artistic inspiration. I lead a women's ministry and this is exactly what I was looking for. Now I can teach a great lesson on faithbooking. There is one drawback to this book that I wish the author would notice and help me with. Though there is a list of the companies from which supplies were purchased, there are no specific names of what to buy. I have been trying to find some of the spiral bound small artistic books in the book itself and I don't even know what to search for. Did you buy giant sketchbooks and cut them down? What? It would be very helpful to those of us living outside of the USA where we do not have grand art stores to have a bit more information about the supplies used.I do feel that this book was well worth the money I paid for it. I think I have read every word at least twice and looked at the pictures a dozen times. I can't wait to share it with my women's group.

This book is a little disapointing to me - doesn't have as many ideas that get my creative juices going as I'd hoped. Good concepts though and for someone who is a beginner at journaling and creative expression, will be a good intro. I will use it as a resource for those taking classes from me in the future.

I loved the book because it gave me the inspiration to get closer and reconnect with God on another level. The photographs are beautiful and the writing is well done. The book presented ideas that never occured to me. Sometimes I felt the writers were speaking directly to me or the Holy Spirit throught them. I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to express their spirituality in new and creative ways.
