It truly is lovely!

Whatever is Lovely: A Coloring Book for Reflection and Worship By WaterBrook Press

Coloring books for adults is the new "it" craze. It seems adults are finding stress release and a new sense of relaxation in reverting to things they once did when they were kids.

However, there is nothing childish about this latest coloring book from WaterBrook Press. In fact, it is elegant. (If you can even say that about a coloring book!)

The artwork in this book is truly amazing and elegant, so much so that these pages could be framed after coloring. The weight of the paper has a scrapbook feel, almost like card stock. The only recommendation would be to make the pages perforated so they could be easily tore out. (Please consider that option on the next one, WaterBrook Press!)

Above this just being a pretty, the best thing about this coloring book is the focus on worshipping our Lord. Each page contains artwork along with a Scripture, hymn, or quote from a devotion, and the back of each page describes its meaning. So, while you color, you are entering into a holy time to sit still and contemplate and reflect on God. What a creative and powerful worship time!

I believe this would make a great gift!
