Today's bookshelf recommendation was originally published as a book for youth, but as an adult, I've gotten hours of enjoyment from it. I personally find that it helps me think about my faith in different ways, and the prompts are a wonderful way to get creative with prayer and meditation time.
Christians have long connected with God through writing and journaling. But words alone aren't always the best way to express how we feel. Sometimes we do better expressing ourselves in pictures and doodles, scribbles and scratches. Enter the BOOK OF FIDGETS, an interactive “doodle journal” that gives youth space to jot, sketch, scribble, and be creative. It’s not about doing, but about creating. Instead of filling in blanks or completing crossword puzzles, people will doodle. They will create. They will have the freedom to go wherever their brain—and, more importantly, the Spirit—leads them.
FIDGETS offers all sorts of doodle and journal prompts, including activities related to Scripture, the seasons of the year, and what it means to be a Christian.
