My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from Callisto Publisher’s Club. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

The Popcorn Prayer Journal starts with the different ways we communicate with God such as praising God, confessing to Him, asking for help for yourself or others, etc. Keeping track of our prayers creates a permanent record of our communication with Him.

When I saw this book, I thought it’d be a good way to keep track of my popcorn prayers throughout the day. It’s not quite what I expected because of the way it’s set up. It’s a good journal to use for prompts for prayer that have a few lines to write about that prayer, but it’s not really set up to record the spontaneous prayers I say throughout the day.

Although the Popcorn Prayer Journal is not exactly what I expected, it’s still a good journal, and I will make good use of it.
