LIVE LOVED: AN ADULT COLORING BOOK
PRAY * CREATE * MEMORIZE * REFLECT * JOURNAL
How would your attitude, actions, and responses change if you lived in the unconditional, immeasurable love of God? What would it look like for you to live loved?
Live Loved provides an opportunity for you to pull away from the hustle and bustle of life to pray, reflect, journal, and unleash your creative gifts as you marinate in the truth of God's fierce love for you.
By yourself or with others, unleash the creative talents God has given you in a meaningful way. Color and doodle, commit Scripture to memory, share your artistry, and learn to live loved as you craft God's Word into your heart.
I've always been drawn to the Arts. I learn best through story or song, dance or visual arts -- and that includes learning about the gospel. Some of my most profound experiences at church have been listening to a choir or the worship songs. So the concept of an inspirational themed colouring book really intrigued me.
A lovely introduction defines what living loved means: "Living as if we're loved by God instead of responding out of the usual petty jealousies, insecurities, fears, or annoyances that try to get the better of us."
This colouring book provides budding artists an opportunity to celebrate some of the scriptures that reveal God's love. The idea is to reflect upon and even memorize the passage as you colour the floral design surrounding it. Each image is accompanied by a journaling page, providing space to write down thoughts, prayers or even your own drawings.
I've begun to anticipate the quiet, reflective time this activity has brought me. A chance to pull away from the stress of life, turning my attention inward as I contemplate what a scripture passage really means to me. Here's an example of one of my pages...no journaling done on this one yet, but it gives you a good idea of how the book is laid out.
I'll definitely continue to incorporate colouring into my daily study and prayer routine. I've already gone online and discovered there's a great selection of inspirational colouring books from all the major Christian publishers.
