Local author “Journaling with Jesus”

Have you taken the challenge to become more intimately acquainted with God?  Christian columnist and author Carol Round will be signing copies of her latest book, “Journaling with Jesus: How to Draw Closer to God,” and the new companion workbook, “The 40-Day Challenge,” at Tiny Cakes & Truffles, located at 1229 W. Will Rogers Blvd. on Tuesday, September 18 from 4:30 – 6 p.m.

Round’s book, released by Westbow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson, is a creative call to an authentic, intimate relationship with Christ through the art of prayer journaling. The companion workbook challenges readers to try prayer journaling for 40 days and offers daily scriptures and reading prompts to get started on the journey.

Readers and reviewers are giving “Journaling with Jesus” five-star reviews. “‘Journaling with Jesus’ is a must read for anyone who wants a more intimate relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,” says Alecia Roberts, author of “The Pursuit of Purpose: A Journey to Forgiveness and Healing.”

Patricia O’Neal, Amazon book reviewer, says, “Some might choose to read ‘Journaling with Jesus’ in one sitting. I found taking this book in chunks, or small bites, works quite well. It gives the reader time to ponder the various scriptures given and ideas offered. No matter which way you choose to experience this book, do read it. It is well worth the time invested.”

Another Amazon reviewer, Patsy Dyer, had this to say about Round’s book. “After only a few days of ‘Journaling with Jesus,’ I can see (and feel) the difference. If you are seeking a deeper relationship with the Savior, I definitely recommend this book.”

Ms. Round, who is also a self-syndicated columnist and inspirational speaker, has been keeping a prayer journal for 11 years. She was encouraged by other Christian women to compile her experiences as well as other women’s testimonies into a book.

Her weekly column, “A Matter of Faith,” runs in 12 Oklahoma newspapers and a California publication with an international audience. Ms. Round’s column takes an honest and sometimes humorous look at the struggles we all have with fears, uncertainty, self-esteem and relationships, as well as life’s joys and surprises.  The column has been in syndication since 2005.
