Focus your youth's energy.

Engage your teens’ energy, creativity, imagination, and focus as they make this book their own.
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, youth 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. In addition, teens will have fun creating an animated flipbook from scratch!
