How a Gratitude & Prayer Journal Becomes a "Gift of Joy" by Bev Wicher

How I Got Started

Several years ago, I was introduced to visual faith practices by Connie Denninger. At first I was overwhelmed — while fascinated by the process, I am not an artist and felt it was way past my comfort level. But as I listened and watched, I was drawn to the practice of gratitude and prayer journals.

In a gratitude and prayer journal, there is one page to document a gratitude for each day and, on the opposite page, an image with spaces for writing in names and concerns to keep in your prayers.

For each month, a page to record one gratitude each day and an open image to record prayers - a visual reminder to continue to pray and to live in gratitude.
