About the book
Be Amazed by God's Grace!
Bring new joy to your time in God's Word by incorporating beauty and creativity. As a gentle tonic for the busyness and worries of your life, this travel-sized coloring book devotional will help you focus your attention and calm your hurried soul.
Each page spread includes Scripture, devotional thoughts, and images to color that are all designed to reconnect you with the God who knows your every need. Grab your colored pencils, crayons, or markers and set yourself free to create. But most importantly: relax, have fun, and be blessed by God's grace.
When I received this book to review, my first impression was primary based on the size of it. The book is not very large nor thick for that matter. But there is a saying that says “do not judge a book by its cover” right? So who was I to think that this book was less important than another devotional which has hundreds of page? I proceeded to explore the book before passing any further judgment on it.
This is a devotional book that will also allow the reader to color the pages while you reflect on what you have just read. This book contains exactly twenty-eight devotions divided into four weeks based on specific themes. The themes are the following:
- Week 1: Knowing Who You Are
- Week 2: Intimacy with God
- Week 3: When Life Gets Tough
- Week 4: Now This is Living!
Each week contain a devotion for each day. Through these devotions, you will learn to discover who you are, how to live intimately with God, remember that you can rely on Him at all times, and spread you wings in the world. You can spend more time reflecting on the teaching you have just read by coloring the opposite page. Sometimes you will have a little drawing on the devotion’s page as well.
In conclusion, I think this little devotion book is fun for whoever likes to color as well. I am saying this because recently as I was drawing in one of my books, someone looked at what I was doing and said “Oh you are one of those…” I was surprised but when the person told me she really hate coloring then I could understand her comment better. However, that small comment had other consequences on me like doubts and insecurity creeping slowly…. but in the end I decided to embrace my coloring because I find it is relaxing and it provides healing in my life.
Words of Grace is available for purchase at your favourite bookstore, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
