It has been around a long time. At least for me it has. (Am I showing my age here?! Anyway . . .)
Coloring and Coloring Books. The ultimate form of stress relief and according to the internet, it isn’t just for kids anymore. Adult themed coloring books are popping up every where in the last couple of months. Especially coloring books aimed at women. They are laden with flowers, swirls, Bible verses, and more.
I have found for myself that taking even as little at 15 minutes a day to use my Christian themed coloring book does me a world of good. It helps me relax and tends to make me focus on the truly important things in my life.
A week or so ago I was visiting my go-to mega store and picked up one for myself. After I got home I grabbed some colored pencils that I love and settled down to color my heart out. Recently I noticed that you can even purchase some adorable Christian themed coloring books for women too.
I was delighted to see Beauty in the Bible: Adult Coloring Book for sale and it looks absolutely divine! (I’m thinking Christmas may come early for me!)
As I flipped through some of the images I found that there are words and/or phrases on some of the pictures. I find that coloring the letters is just as enjoyable as coloring the images. Once I found the Beauty in the Bible one I took some time to check out some other ones as well. There are so many different kinds of adult themed coloring books that I truly had a hard time deciding which ones I wanted to share with you.
The next favorite on my list is “Today Is Going To Be A Great Day”: Inspiration Adult Coloring Book may just be the find of the century for me and my stress. The coloring book has the following wonderful features:
- Perforated One-Side Printed Sturdy Pages
- Designed for Fun, Serenity, Calmness & Quiet Inspiration
- Includes Gift Tags, Bookmarks & Cards to Color
- Presentation Page for Gift-Giving
- Sprinkles of Scripture Here & There
- 8 1/2 x 11 Inch
I love how big these coloring books are for ease of use.
With each one I find there seems to be more that I find so appealing about making time to sit and relax with an inspirational coloring book!
The next one that I find that I would love to have is Faith in Color: An Adult Coloring Book as I see that this one is suitable for Bible Study purposes.
That sounds like a lovely way to spend some time in quiet time with the Lord. Add in a box of Prismacolor colored pencils and it sounds to me that this would be a more stress relieving way to Bible study. With 70 pages in the Faith in Color coloring book there would be ample opportunity to spend some quiet time in reflection as well as adding some beauty in verse to your day.
Here are some of the added features in this coloring book:
- Filled with uplifting Scripture
- Illustrations for simple to advanced
- One Page per printed design
- 70 pages of designs
- 8 1/2 x 11 inch
Last but not least is the Live Loved: An Adult Coloring Book that I just know that I will own. This one is without a doubt on my Christmas wish-list this year.
This is such an incredibly beautiful coloring book. Even the outside draws me in with the stunning image of the flowers. I understand the need to sit and reflect upon God’s wonders, just by the creative expressions of this spectacular artist.
The wonderful features for Live Loved are as follows:
- 48 pages
- Pray through it
- Create in it
- Memorize Scripture
- Journal in it
- Craft God’s Word into your heart
If there are more down the line that grab my attention, I will make sure to let you know.
I hope you find the one coloring book that you need so that your stress can be relieved. That you can simply take time to reflect upon God’s creative beauty and wonder.
With so many Christian adult coloring books to choose from, I believe that you just cannot choose just one!
In His Grace.
