Combining Norton’s powerful, full-color illustrations with scripture, her original reflections and prayers, and journaling space, Surrender All will help you encounter Christ’s Passion in a new light.
Full of passion, energy, and faith, Jen Norton’s paintings have inspired believers from every walk of life. In this beautiful book, Norton takes you on a personal retreat, inviting you to walk with Jesus from the joy of Palm Sunday through the Stations of the Cross and to the glory of the Resurrection.
In each chapter you will find:

- brief scripture readings accompanied by a reflection from the author;
- journal prompts to help you experience the stations more deeply;
- a creative exercise based on the Gospel passage; and
- prayers to draw your heart to Jesus.
As you ponder each image and meditate through the day’s readings and journaling prompts, you will find yourself surrendering to the Son of Man who offered himself up for us all.
Surrender All is a perfect prayer companion for adoration or holy hour, Lenten devotions, or personal prayer any time of the year.

“Every Lent, I attempt to follow the Stations of the Cross every week, and I have usually fallen away mid-way through the season! Jen Norton’s journal has changed that for me. It offers so many avenues of prayer, contemplation, and discussion, I find myself fired up by this devotion in a whole new way. I know you will be, too!”
