“I am grateful for having this workbook to use as a tool for my own spiritual growth and connection with G-d,” says Julie A. in an Amazon review of the book, “The artwork and inspirations serve as encouraging guides for introspection and engaging in positive action out in the world. I can see aspects of this workbook resonating strongly with people from a wide variety of Jewish backgrounds and levels of religious observance. The Divine Inspiration in each page can be felt by the participant. The joy is contagious!”
“I love Rae's art and calligraphy. I started with her "Joyfully Jewish" coloring book for adults in the search for kosher relaxation and ever since I have found not only that, but a path to self-discovery and further connection to my truest self, which is in reality her final objective, I believe. I truly recommend her books to anyone looking to strengthen her connection with her roots and looking for a pure path to it.” says another satisfied Amazon customer.
The Joyfully Jewish Family & Adult Coloring Book
By Rae Shagalov
"Joyfully Jewish" is the first coloring book for adults in the "Color Your Soul" series of family and adult coloring books that integrate the relaxing, meditative art of coloring with deep chassidic secrets of Judaism. It includes more than 40 fun designs to color and unique Jewish quotes from contemporary Jewish masters written in beautiful calligraphy. This coloring book for grownups and families is a relaxing, uplifting and meditative introduction to Jewish spirituality. Coloring for relaxation and stress relief is a peaceful, meditative activity. As you color in the pages, contemplate the Artnotes thoughts on them and try to internalize them. If you’re doing this as a family activity, discuss the ideas while you color them in together. Afterwards, hang up these beautiful family treasures around your home to set a Joyfully Jewish tone. The designs are printed on one side of the page only to prevent bleed-through in this adult coloring book for relaxation.
The Secret Art of Talking to God: 30 Day Creative Prayer Journal of Jewish Meditation
By Rae Shagalov
Available in hardcover, paperback & Kindle editions HERE.
Praise for the Secret Art of Talking to G-d
“A burst of spiritual energy”
“You can see and feel Rae’s soul in her work. Her handwritten text is very alive, dynamic, active – a burst of spiritual energy.”
“Little boosts of light!”
Esther Ginsburg, Producer of Miracle Days
I surround myself with Rae’s art in my home office. I love that whenever I get overwhelmed or discouraged, I can just look up and the Holy Sparks Artnotes are like little boosts of light that help me turn my dark thoughts into positive action.”
“Not just another book about Praying”
Adelle D. John
“This is not just another very well written book on subject material that is trendy at the moment, but a book written from the heart, full of soul itself, and rather than being a book you read about learning to pray, it is a book that you pray--words that you help you experience in the now--your own way to talk to your Creator. Is an excellent choice for those who are first starting to explore a "prayer life" or for those who have been praying all their lives but want to explore a deeper and more satisfying prayer life or a new perspective to their prayer life.”
“A gem of a book!” Reba Linker, Author of Follow the Yarn
“Rae Shagalov's beautiful book is an amazing gift to give yourself and others, full of the profoundest wisdom, all beautifully enhanced by the masterful calligraphy and artwork. Keep this book by your side, move slowly through the pages, and allow the wisdom of each teaching to seep deep within. It is truly a gem!”
“Very inspirational and motivating!” Shoshana Michel
“I decided to read one "Soul Adventure" a day. I read it and I internalize it. Each Soul Adventure is short and simple, but enough for you to work with. It gives you a lot to think about throughout your day. I've found them meaningful, inspirational and motivating. Even though this ebook is geared towards the Jewish faith I think that anyone can benefit from it.”
“I loved this book!" Susan Fleming
“As a Christian exploring the Jewish roots of what I believe, I found this book helpful as a devotional aid. The artwork displays beautifully in the Kindle app on my iPad, and the meditations are full of encouragement to draw closer to my Creator. Rae's writing has a distinctly Jewish "voice" which delighted me completely. I'm looking forward to sharing the book with my friends, and to exploring her other books."
“What an awesome Prayer Journal!!!" Maria Lex
"I am so excited to begin reading this Prayer Journal! I am not Jewish, but I have been interested in and studied some things about Judaism. I knew the Jewish people did not spell G-d's name out but didn't know why until now. I am looking forward to this 30-day journey. I know it will help me as well as anyone who reads it. I have read "A Lesson A Day" by Chofetz Chaim in the past. This book is somewhat like that. . . I would say a MUST for anyone desiring a closer walk with G-d."
“Meditation with Purpose and Focus" Tracy Tennant "Equipping Christians"
"Rae's book is inspirational and informative. One of the things I like about it is that the 30-days of what she calls "Soul Adventures" are purposeful. This isn't about mind-emptying and mantras, but about finding and connecting with G-d through meaningful reflection. For those unfamiliar with Jewish terminology, Rae provides simple explanations. Her beautiful hand-drawn artwork and calligraphy adorns the pages. I found this Creative Prayer Journal to be uplifting, and it encourages me to deepen my spiritual walk. I think this book will touch the hearts of Jews and G-d-fearing gentiles alike. I'm not Jewish, but Rae's messages of hope and encouragement have already touched mine!"
“To be treasured and savoured” Carol Lee Martin
"In the search for meaning in an oft chaotic world, this book by Rae Shagalov, is to be treasured and savoured. An exploration of prayer and meditation, Rae's wisdom and insight, together with beautiful art and calligraphy,are precious gifts to all who read it. This is a truly inspirational book and will be a source both of joy and encouragement to those on their soul's journey."
